All around the world, there seem to be signs that immunity to SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19, doesn't last very long after you're vaccinated.

Israel is now having one of the world's worst COVID-19 surges about five months after vaccinating a majority of its population. And in the U.S., health officials are recommending a booster shot eight months after the original vaccine course.

On a recent afternoon outside a McDonald's in central London, customer Alon Williams considers indulging in a milkshake, likely chocolate or vanilla.

He is about to be disappointed. The American fast food chain has been out of milkshakes for most of the week.

"It's a real shame you can't get a milkshake if you need one because McDonald's are the best at milkshakes," Williams said.

Let's face it - getting feedback at work can be stressful. It can be hard to know what to take seriously and what can be ignored. Luckily, Julia Furlan of NPR's Life Kit is here with some tips to make the process of receiving feedback a little less of a roller coaster.

JULIA FURLAN, BYLINE: One of the scariest things a person could ever say to me is, hey, can I give you a little feedback? Maybe that gives you an icy sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, too.
