Oxford's 2021 Word of the Year is 'Vax'

"Whether you are vaxxed, double-vaxxed, or unvaxxed, the language relating to vaccines and vaccination permeated all of our lives in 2021," said a report from Oxford, exploring the word and its striking rise in use. In a statement, Oxford added: "A relatively rare word in our corpus until this year, by September it was over 72 times more frequent than at the same time last year. No word better captures the atmosphere of the past year than vax." That is really true!
