    If the #mandates are to manage the spread, then all pertinent info for decision making should be included all the way to #booster #shots/jabs.
    Now speaking of boosters, since the Nation used a cocktail of vaccines, some not approved by some Nations, which BOOSTER SHOTS will be used, and the timeline to begin?

    PM Browne and his crew are talking #HERD #IMMUNITY, I think they HEARD IMMUNITY, and think reaching it, in reference to these times is easy, as #one #two #three.
    Two more years of this will definitely separate, the men from the boys!

  2. One thought or two.
    HEALTH CRISIS! Yesterday, today, and tomorrow. It’s time for us to act to improve our health and strengthen our human immune system.EAT BETTER and EXERCISE MORE so that we can all, especially the youths, TAKE CONTROL OF OUR HEALTH and be BETTER together.
    Plant, Eat, and Trade (PET action) fresh Fruits and Vegetables.
    Grow Herbs ini the garden and use them.
    “….diet rich in vegetables and fruit, exercise (physical activity), avoiding alcohol (moderation in all things), controlling body weight, proper rest and avoiding stress are ESSENTIAL FOR THE HUMAN IMMUNE SYSTEM TO BE STRENGTHENED…..to deal with viruses, bacteria, parasites and other micro-organisms that can enter the body and alter the normal functioning of the human organism.”
    “You are what you eat.”
    “Health Is Wealth. Wealth is not Health.”
