You could follow on by saying .. ‘and not only that when he gets sick he helps himself to the animals’ deworming tablets ..’We need an innovative Jab campaign/commercials. At the pub today, the antivaxxer religiously vaccinates his dogs cats and sheep. But not himself. I think this could be good ad material.
Vaccination appears to now be a "serious infection hazard reduction process " rather than the "advertised" infection prophylactic
We are now seeing many daily anecdotal reports from International friends particularly in Europe, of Full vaccination but suffering mild to heavy infection.
Before the change, the definition for “vaccination” read, “the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.” Now, the word “immunity” has been switched to “protection.”
(my emphasis)But the original "inventor" of the Pfizer vaccine BNT has a somewhat different view. the CEO thinks the vaccine will be effective in preventing severe disease and hospitaliasation and worries more about the unvaccinated than Omicron.
BioNTech and Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine will likely offer strong protection against any severe disease from the new Omicron virus variant, BioNTech's Chief Executive told Reuters, as the firm weighs the need to upgrade its commonly used shot.www.reuters.com
How long till ATAGI reduces the booster interval to less than 5 months, i dont think they will wait too long
Vaccinations surged significantly in SA. I randomly walked past a couple of pop up clinics in SA yesterday and a queue to be vaccinated and all waiting chairs full. Nothing like cases near you in such a random location (Willunga) to get everyone onboard.I agree, a bunch of RWE has come out showing how quickly all vaccines fade in terms of protection against symptomatic infection from Omicron. Important to note the RWE is showing the vaccines are working against severe illness though.
So it should theoretically still protect our healthcare system (the anti vaxxers will be hit hard though!).
I suspect as soon as they line up the logistics we will drop our interval for the booster as well. Certainly before winter sets in.
