Second booster shots haven't become available yet.

Wife and I got our second boosters in front of Bodega Aurerra about 3 weeks ago.

But I've not heard any recommendations for even a 3rd booster, let alone a 4th.

It is likely that a 3rd booster, which will be a reformulated vaccine to include variants will be available in the fall. This reformulation will likely become to new primary vaccine for those who have never been vaccinated. It is most likely to be both of the MRNA vaccines. The Army is alleged to be working on a polyvalent vaccine that they hope will cover all corona viruses not just Covid-19.

I was offered a booster in front of Mercado Central the last week of April. I told them I already had three shots and they said that's ok. I didn't have my vax card with me, or I probably would have taken them up. I didn't, because of an upcoming trip to Canada and not wanting to muddy up the paperwork if a vax card was still needed this summer.

Here in British Columbia, we're scheduled for our 2nd booster shots on Wednesday, almost 6 months to the day after our 1st boosters. No mention yet of any further boosters.

The pick-up truck crowd of flag-waving anti-vaxxers still line the main intersection of our small city every Saturday, spouting their bilious conspiracy nonsense and shouting "FREEDOM NOW." In Canada, for Pete's sake!

Mask-wearing is now voluntary here, everywhere but healthcare centres, doctor's offices, etc. Perhaps 35-40% of shoppers, (me included), still wear their masks.

My wife and I both received all 4 shots, and yet she tested positive for Covid today. Unlike most Montanans, we religiously wear masks when entering public buildings. Makes you wonder about the effectiveness of the vaccine.

Since she's not on a respirator in a hospital you should stop wondering and give thanks the vaccine continues working. The only reason the virus is still making the rounds in your neck of the woods is thanks to your anti-science cult-following neighbors. Down here it's been a non-issue for over a month now.

Recent reports put the daily count of new COVID cases in the USA at 100,000... equal to the daily cases one year ago....and yet governments everywhere can't relax COVID restrictions fast enough. My wife and I are among the very few still wearing masks in stores. We've had all 4 shots as well. Our daughter, a fully-vaccinated longterm care aide, came down with COVID a few weeks ago, and was very sick with extreme flu-like symptoms for a week. Had she not been vaccinated, she undoubtedly would have required hospitalization.

You should not be surprised. After over a couple of years peoples stupidity should not amaze. We are on a European trip, Czech Republic and Poland so far. Masks are very rarely seen. While using them outdoors is probably not needed other than in crowds, indoor use is good idea. Our tour group had to be vaccinated and test negative on day one. Our fellow travelers almost never mask up. It’s hard to understand. Even if you don’t get very sick, you need to test before returning home and could end up adding 10 quarantine days to your vacation.

My wife and I have had all 4 shots and, unlike most Montanans, we always wear masks in public buildings. And yet, much to our surprise and disappointment, we both tested positive for Covid yesterday. You can't be too careful.

I don't think the booster is of that much use these days.
Everyone I knew who got Omicron had the booster.
This virus is endemic now I think. More prevalent but less deadly.

The last booster shot is what's keeping the hospitals from filling up again with people on respirators.
