6. I also have a very strong immune system.

And like you rarely, if ever anymore, catch whatever is going around. The last time I had flu was sometime in the early 1970s, and I don't bother with the flu vaccine.

However, I am getting the J&J vaccine tomorrow, hooray! While I sort of suspect I would at best contract a mild case of Covid-19, I'm not willing to put it to the test.

Here's another thing we all need to be thinking about. The way you build a strong immune system is to be exposed to lots of things so your immune system gets to fight them and be strong. This year of staying mostly at home, which while entirely sensible and appropriate, means that little kids in particular are not being exposed to the things they formerly would have. Once we all come out of lockdown it's going to be a problem. For me, that's not an issue, because I've already long since gone through all of that.
