Just of curiosity, can you ballpark how much someone would save if they go through with this route?

"Staying up to date" according to the CEO of Pfizer:

Two doses of the vaccine offers very limited protection, if any.  3 doses with a booster (that's 4 total shots) offer reasonable protection against hospitalization and deaths.  ...And less protection against the infection. ... We are working on a new vaccine (that's shot #5)...that will cover Omicron as well and ...the vaccine will be ready in March (2022)"

I wonder if employers will also require the flu vaccine. And I wonder how many boosters for Covid will be required by Apple and others. I can’t imagine employees being happy about having to get two boosters per year if that is what is ultimately required.

The line between COVID and common cold, is getting blurred.. infection of one can help protect against the other...

And they are talking about 2nd generation of vaccine already...

Some are coming around….

After SCOTUS' Hit, Companies are Ditching Their Vaccine Mandates Like a Bad Habit

A growing number of health care systems and other companies, including Amtrak and General Electric, are suspending mandates that require employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

The move follows court rulings in recent weeks that paused such requirements from the Biden administration for health care workers and federal contractors. Still, the decision about whether to require vaccinations remained up to individual employers.

Apple to Require Employee Proof of COVID-19 Booster:

"Due to waning efficacy of the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines and the emergence of highly transmissible variants such as Omicron, a booster shot is now part of staying up to date with your COVID-19 vaccination to protect against severe disease,"

________

UC Schools Will Require COVID Booster Upon Return To Campus:

“Under existing UC policy, students, faculty, and staff are required to keep their vaccination status up to date” University of California President Michael V. Drake said in a letter Tuesday. “The policy mandates COVID-19 boosters for those who are eligible.”

________

Music Center to Require Proof of Vaccine Booster:

"Los Angeles audiences will have to stay up to date on their vaccinations. The Music Center — L.A.’s downtown performing arts complex that includes Walt Disney Concert Hall, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Ahmanson Theatre, and Mark Taper Forum — is requiring a COVID-19 booster shot for entry to its indoor venues."

'Fully vaccinated' for COVID? Now you need a booster to be 'up to date':

"Individuals are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if they've received their primary series," CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said at the Jan. 5 White House COVID briefing. "That definition is not changing ... but we are now recommending individuals stay up to date with additional doses they are eligible for." ...Though the official definition of "fully vaccinated" isn't likely to change, Fauci has said three shots should be considered the new baseline. ...Israel's national coronavirus czar, Dr. Salman Zarka, told his country it should prepare for a fourth dose of an mRNA vaccine. Fauci has said that the need for a fourth jab is "conceivable" in the US"
https://www.cnet.com/health/medical/does-fully-vaccinated-for-covid-mean-three-shots-learn-where-boosters-are-required/

_______

So instead of changing the definition of "fully vaccinated," they can redefine what eligibility means, (i.e. eligible for the next booster after xx months - recently changed from 6 months to 5 months) which necessarily dictates the number of boosters recommended per year.  Based on this information, corporations and schools may mandate additional boosters as exemplified in the above referenced links.

This is odd since how are you "fully vaccinated" if you have to have additional shots.  (The word "fully" leads you to assume that no more shots are necessary.  Something is full if there is no more room for additions.)  Being "fully vaccinated" and needing additional shots are contradictory statements.  So it doesn't make sense, but it is certainly a clever trick to make people feel better about additional shots.

Interesting, the floor plans they put up for Daybreak at Solis by Pulte are identical to the models at Launch at Rise by Shea. Didn’t realize two different builders could build the exact same floorplans… anyone know when the waitlist starts for daybreak?

wait a second. Zero listing in Woodbury, 1 listing each in Cypress Village and Stonegate? didn’t know Irvine RE is still this hot. I am at peace leaving Irvine, which I feel it is overrated more and more everyday.

As of 6pm on Saturday, Jan 15th there are 84 active listings in Irvine...4 in Cypress Village, 2 in Eastwood, 2 in Stonegate, and 0 in Woodbury.

@Compressed-Village - Truth.

@Irvinehomeseeker - your question is well beyond my pay grade. Never, ever, ever take financial advice from a lender. By the way... let me add this: NEVER.

@ All others: A good majority of Irvine and surrounding area inventory issues frankly stem from vast numbers of FCB who have invested for profit, not schools or personal safety. It's not illegal of course, but impactful nonetheless. All of the "see through" homes (those without window treatments) with front door stoops littered with drop off advertisements, those that remain dark after the sun sets - represent lost inventory. There are a few new build tracts just outside of Irvine with about 20% - possibly higher - of sold units in this condition.

Imagine how sales and price distortion might be impacted if at least among new builds there was a 10-15, perhaps 20% increase of available units?

Sorry that I lead this off topic in the thread. Perhaps it's time to open up the discussion elsewhere.
This is so true. FCB is dumping A LOT of money in real estate in Irvine and it's jacking up the prices there. I've looked at a lot of homes that closed in Irvine and a bunch are FCB. Pretty easy to know when you can't even find them on LinkedIn. Also, a lot of them are buying homes and putting it back in the market in 6months to one year time frame. So much for CCP restricting the amount of money outflows to the US.
