The current public health officials in North America need some enlightenment :(

Those people need to disociate between infection and hospitalization. The latter is what counts. That is what the vaccines were all about.

All Nobel prizes for 2021 belong to Anthony Fauci.

Priority should be the unvaccinated. But because they are idiots, good luck with trying to persuade idiots. So, mandates is the only way.

Boosters for the elderly

Still buying into the hysteria Greek?

You know where you can stick your boosters.

Here comes Santa, here comes Santa, spreading Omicron
Vaxxen and Blitzen and all his reindeers pulling on their reins
Hear that coughing, wheezing and sneezing, oh what a beautiful sight
He's got a bag that's filled with injections for boys and girls alike
So jump in bed and cover your head, 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Freezer. Duh!

If Santa ain't vaccinated, then Santa, too, is an idiot.

Santa is immortal. We're not.
