Recently a University in SW Ontario
Announced a better way to check
For Antibodies of Covid
Not newly infected people but
Thise who have had it and have
Created antibdies within
This is great since the vaccines
Will be difficult to get in
Next few weeks and
Those who think they may have had
It

Should be able to get it checked out
Thus they can wait a little
Longer before getting the
Vaccine
Ive heard if many people
Who felt they had it in Jan
To march last year
No one knew it could travel
So fast

When the troops in 1918
Were infected it
Took months for the
Infection to spread due to
Slower teansportation means
For people
This time I think it took days or
Weeks to get to many people
All around the world
That is my opinion

Alot of people have health
Concers re getting vaccinated
Eg. If youve had Bells Palsey
Some of the vacines may be
Problematic
Medication 4 Bells Palsey is very
Expensive eg 300 to 500
Does Canadas OHIP pay this?

Is rare)
Immunization may not
Be a option for them
And others who have a similar
Disposition
Each person is unique
So is individual health
We need to utilize all the
Great options that are out there

Above I said
300 to 500 $
It may be more now
Cause when I went back to
College my children asked 4
Help to pay for the medication
And my being a student and
Having extra $ was difficult
Anyone being a College Student
Knows how hard that would be

I wish that we could have antibody testing
Reason being
If someone has no immunity
Shouldnt they have vacine first
But if u have some immunity
That would be helpful to know
Then maybe there wiuld be better
