A related question is how many boosters of the same vaccine formulation will be required in the future and what is the safety profile of regularly repeated mRNA boosters, because the second Faustian hypothesis is that these vaccines are doing subtle but permanent damage to organs (e.g. heart or reproductive system or brain) which will accumulate until the damage is apparent and common. The appearance of increased myocarditis/pericarditis and menstrual disorders for which no mechanism is proposed is the smoke hiding a much bigger fire.
We all live in Dunbar sized bubbles. Very few people have more than 150 people for which they could know medical histories enough to answer these questions.
Which is why the Wikipedia article says that ADE is definitely not a problem for the initial strain. All the vaccine trials looked for it and did not find it
Look on the bright side. If the next variant is even less virulent than Omicron, you will stop caring about covid too.
They were put down, put underground and contaminated ground waters. There were 55 million of them
Coincidentally, Serbia just revoked the exploration licenses of Australian mining company Rio Tinto in Serbia.
Is that retaliation for the way Australia treated their best tennis player?
What is the cause of this? If Omicron is so very contagious, and it is already close to peak in many places in Europe, why is Ukraine so late?
How do you assign probability that a child will develop complications from the vaccine, they will be permanent but not lethal. E.g. The child will be sterile.
You are going to be freezing a lot of other microorganisms in your sample. Some of them could be harmful when introduced to nasal cavity at the wrong time.
At the end of 2020, the CDC estimated ~85 million infections. There were however only 32 million cases at that time. A large fraction of the difference would be asymptomatic.
The point is, it might not matter what we do with omicron, the next VOC can still come out of some animal viral pool from a virus variant we know nothing about
In your counterfactual example, we would have a much better warning coming from the third world. They would be hit much harder by the virus that affects the young disproportionately. We would literally see on TV millions of dead children in Third World countries perhaps even before the virus established a strong foothold. The beginning of the pandemic would look completely different. Isolating small children from any ways of getting in contact with the virus would become the highest priority until vaccines were developed. More different treatments would be tried. Small children would become treated as immune compromised bubble boys. They would be living in a bubble.
Does this mean that it is too late to vaccinate now or that the deadline for an unvaccinated to vaccinate is rapidly approaching?
I am not answering the question but what do you think of this?
Should Pfizer now or in the future be able to collect a 500% premium on these vaccines?
Vaccinated people are also at risk from other vaccinated people. If vaccinated people are careless and engage in many high risk activities in the enclosed environment, the advantages of vaccination will be reduced.
Well, if this is consistently applied across many events, the unvaccinated will not be allowed risky activities and the vaccinated will be allowed risky activities. Which means in practice consistently higher number of risky activities available for the vaccinated. I agree that this effect might not be significantly big and more measurements would be needed.
When you wear it for a day. For longer periods one also needs to be trained to take care of the PPE. Cleaning, storage, retc.
Half the population have IQ less than 100. You are going to set up training stations or the PPE will fail soon for a large percentage of population.
I don’t understand why vaccinated people should prefer not being close to unvaccinated people.
More effective PPE require more training in their use.
But effectively, the unvaccinated were not allowed to have the same level of risk as vaccinated if they couldn’t come to the event, right?
