A little bit of a different post

Hello everyone and sorry I was gone for so long but I wanted to make an update of not only where I was but also where the world is right now. Its a strange place out there with COVID and the world is different now. Things likely wont go back to the way they were for the foreseeable future. The best thing we can do is carry on. On that note lets get into it.

Some important things that have happened in the world recently include the approval of the Covid-19 booster shot from Pfizer for ages 12+ and I got mine last week Thursday. I’m sure you all know where this going. So I got the shot and went to school Friday and felt fine. But when I got home I passed out at around 3:30 pm and woke up around 10 am the next day. And I had no reaction to the first 2 doses so just a word of advice is to make sure to take it on a Friday or just take some time of work/school.

Another thing thats going on in the world right now is there was a new way to fight cancer developed that is the most revolutionary thing that has been developed in decades. Which is CAR-T cell therapy. Essentially in this form of therapy a patients own blood/cells are extracted and then their T cells are modified to recognize, attach to, and destroy cancerous cells that their non altered cells don’t recognize.

This is a basic diagram explaining what I said probably a little more simply. But this therapy will help millions of people and will definitely help in the battle against stopping cancer.

And of course we can’t forget the situation with Covid between omicron and the delta variants. Which is why it is still essential to get vaccinated if you haven’t already. And if you can get your booster as well.

That’s going to be it for this blog but make sure to stay safe and see you next time.
