Nah, they’ll just shoot it with their AR-15‘s. We’ll be back to that soon enough.
And this is part of the problem. We need vaccines that not only prevent you from getting sick, but also prevent you from spreading it. As long as every single person is a potential Typhoid Mary, can we ever truly achieve herd immunity? Or am I missing something here?
Are you less likely to spread it compared to those unvaccinated or does it not matter?
It's still worth remembering that all data we have is that vaccination significantly reduces the infection rate. Even going with every single person is a potential Typhoid Mary, they're all significantly less likely to be one than the unvaccinated are. Transmission doesn't have to be set to 0, it just has to be reduced such that 1000 infected people infect less than 1000 new people, and making it so most of those people are less likely to get infected will drive things downward.
The real problem is still the dumbasses who won’t get vaccinated
Congratulations to you and to your wife, @DarkGingerJedi ! Many happy returns of your little boy's day
Why is South Africa having problems vaccinated it’s population and when will Africa get vaccinated since only 10 percent of the population has received only one does?
Whenever either A.) they open up the patents.
B.) when we start shipping vaccines over there in mass quantities
When every deer in North America is a possible Typhoid Mary we may already be sunk on herd immunity.
That’s not really how herd immunity works as far as I’m aware, and I don’t think these vaccines protect against transmission enough to attain such a thing in any case. That’s what I’ve read on the subject at least.
Omicron detected in Australia
Reads like a snippet of Star Trek dialogue.
Is it know yet that the booster shot can fight of the omicron variant if tested positive?
I got my booster shot last month
South Africa's health minister has said it is; though a quantified measurement of it doesn't yet exist. But presumably, if it did nothing that would have already shown up by now.
Good preliminary news, however it’s still early days. I think we’re all hoping that the best case scenario, where the disease is highly transmissible but overall less deadly than previous variants, will eventuate.
Or the bigger ones who want to punish businesses for having mask mandates.
I'm surprised the Guardians of Plague actually haven't tried stopping the distribution of vaccines yet. We've only seen at least one school here in Florida which banned teachers from getting the vaccine and/or forcing students to quarantine if they did.
“I killed that guy with my AR-15 because I was defending myself from COVID” is totally an excuse we’ll hear soon.
More like "I killed that guy with my AR-15 because I was defending myself from the vaccinated."
i just read on the fox propaganda network this morning their hosts, none of which are or have ever been reporters, said the new variant is made up by democrats and every two years we'll get one.
Democrats are both completely incompetent, and also capable of creating and updating a global fake virus and plandemic every couple of months for the sole purpose of targeting Republicans.
And Republicans assume this, because its what they themselves would do if they could in their darkest fantasies...and continue to do with programs such as gerrymandering and voter fraud audits and storming the Capitol to overthrow the government
Creating a virus to target people you don't like is basically the plot of No Time to Die. Nice try, Fox News.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-59451103 - so of the 61 passengers in the Netherlands who tested positive for Covid 13 supposedly have the new variant. All of the positive passengers have been quarantined at an airport hotel.
Is fox trying to explain away the fact that overwhelming amounts of the people who end up in hospital due to the virus are republican by saying it’s because it’s all manufactured by the democrats and not because said people don’t take the vaccine
Planning their next whataboutism to try to deflect from their commentary about being glad that Kylo Rittenhouse killed “leftists” and defend their “right” to kill people they don’t like by claiming that “Democrats are doing it by manufacturing viruses!”
