Late September and the new vaccine makes it a month to watch for COVID in Wisconsin
Well, it's late September in Wisconsin. Fall has arrived, both on the calendar and in the cloudy 60-degree weather. Schools and universities are back in session, and... it's also time for cold, flu and (since 2020) COVID season. As you can see, September and October have been when we've seen cases and deaths spike up in Wisconsin. But the good news is that deaths and cases have yet to jump up in September 2022 the Dane County Department of Public Health last week, which showed new COVID cases going down among older residents, but going up among people 22 and under. the 2% of Americans that have gotten the new booster, after dropping by the Verona HyVee on Thursday. Had to admit I was worried over not being able to get another booster since November (under 50..barely), even though I hadn't modified much of my behavior in the last 6-8 months and that my prior vaxes likely would have kept me from getting too screwed up by the virus. Given that the weather is now turning here and the regular Fall virus season is approaching, it might be a good time to head to your local provider and vax up for the Fall, so we can keep these COVID numbers drifting down for the coming months. Or at least not have cases and severity go up as much as it did the last 2 years.
