Unwilling to wait for the federal government to approve coronavirus booster shots, some healthy Americans are seeking them now. "I’m 78 and consider myself at a greater risk," one woman said. "I did feel bad about it. But I didn’t feel bad enough."

@nytimes we discard millions of doses if booster shots add value why not just let people who want to get them get them. we went 5% up in fully vaccinated number in 2 month. all who wanted to get a jab already did

@nytimes You have to take care of yourself. You can’t wait for the government to tell you everything

@nytimes Subject-verb-agreement error, @jestei: "have" should be "has" in "Federal guidance on masks, vaccine mandates, the risk of outdoor transmission and other virus-related issues have shifted often over the course of the pandemic." Guidance on many things is still singular.

@nytimes Given that the US is throwing out doses right now, I’m okay with people evaluating their risk and going for it. If I were 78, I’d probably want to do it. Lots of breakthrough hospitalizations (and some deaths) in that demographic.

@nytimes There is no reason for her to feel bad about getting a third shot. The shot is free. All you have to do is make the appointment. If someone else isn’t taking it it’s just going to go to waste anyways.

@nytimes At 6 months I’ll go get one too. I want it, other people don’t. Their “choice” puts my health at greater risk and the vaccine is my only protection. Plus! They are literally having to toss it out!
