Froedtert, a Wisconsin-based company, said the FDA-approved Novavax COVID-19 vaccine "eliminates" conflicts for some employees with religious exemptions. Employees now have two weeks to get their first dose or they will be considered to have "voluntarily resigned."

Novavax is not authorized for use as a booster dose at this time.
So yes, it is official….they recommended us novaxxers get the new variant specific mrna boosters…….
Will any novaxxers get one? I highly doubt it….
Will they offer a non mrna option for those who are medically unable or unwilling to get an mrna booster?
Will they eventually approve novavax as a booster and how long will they keep on delaying such?
I got the 2nd shot 6 weeks after my first. I was fine up until 10 hours afterwards. Suddenly the chills started and I had never been so cold in my life. I was shivering like crazy. The body aches were crippling, and overall pain was horrible. I was sobbing the entire night because I’ve honestly never felt so ill in my entire life. I was never anticipating such a horrible reaction.
First shot was a breeze, and had no reaction beyond mild pain at the injection site.
Luckily, I’m finally feeling better, but that was not a fun experience.
