Just a shocking number of people don’t even know the 2022 bivalent boosters •exist•.

Folks, there are newly formulated vaccines as of this fall.

If you got your last before Sep / very late Aug, you should get a new booster.

That's why they deserve good health care."

Don't give in to anti-labour rhetoric. Combat false narratives. Solidarity Forever.

Ugh, how embarrassing. The detective who suspects me of murder told me not to leave town and I said "you too" back.

Cats do it
Dogs do it
Even educated hogs do it

Bidrsite Poll 

What's your current relationship with the birdsite?

Reminder: A major reason business implicitly supports ageism outside of executives is because young people are easier to exploit.

I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote.

the one weird trick that made writing alt text on this website click for me
