    Multiple news sources report the booster will be made available for adults 18 and over:

    https://www.nbcnews.com/health/heal...boosters-all-americans-starting-late-n1277059
    https://www.cnn.com/us/live-news/co...s-08-18-21/h_83afd816562ca02c975d1b7d0b616561
    https://www.npr.org/sections/corona...oster-shots-roll-out-september-moderna-pfizer

    However, I have read that they are looking at boosters for adolescents, but haven't made the decision, yet.

    Thanks for the links. :thumbsup: I again assumed that was just for now and that (given their later initial schedule) when the 8-month time came for ages 12-17, there would be availability. Everything continues to happen in stages.

    I hate the new normal. :vbfrown:

    My first was the SR-10, by TI; got it for college (72-76). When I took physics over the summer of '73, it was really not up to the task and my dad borrowed an HP from work. RPN was so much fun {not}. then I had an SR-50, which was semi-programmable, iirc -- meaning, small, short lines of 'code' could be created. Days long gone…oh, and I've used/owned sliderules

    My H.S. senior year was 75-76. Our physics teacher had some expensive calculator but the students were using slide rulers and a book that had a bunch of logarithms & other stuff that we had to use to solve problems?????

    You can see how much of physics I remember... 0 x 0 = 0

    oh, that's a bit later, when the many-to-the-many little net-b's come along...you know, like 2-to-the-2 is 4, 3-to-the-3 is 27, 4-to-the-4 is 256, 10-to-the-10 is 10 billion. I don't know how many little net-b's there are at the moment, but I'm sure you'll hear some singing :newpalm:

    Hear hear! This is why I never stopped masking. I have too much at personal stake to take a chance, particularly my parents. I've had both rounds and so have they, but our life routines are slow enough that extra caution doesn't impact anything.

    I read a disturbing article recently that in the UK something like 80% of the population is vaccinated but still a huge percentage of them are dying. Seems the vaccine is not working that great for the delta variant.
