    You are looking at it from the wrong angle. These people are exposed to sick people all day. The probability of catching any contagious disease is always higher in hospitals and schools.

    Just further proof that this latest variant is powerful enough to get through to people who have had their vaccinations. A lot of trumpers ask "why going back to masks again?". That's the answer.

    Not all their staff is vaccinated I’m sure. The person who vaccinated me was not vaccinated himself. So I wonder what the ratio is

    A vaccinated person can still catch the virus and transmit it. A vaccinated or unvaccinated asymptomatic person can have the virus and transmit it. So, in this situation, the ratios wouldn't necessarily matter.

    Bowerbird, NOT everyone knows everything (except Orange Jesus, of course). It doesn't make them stupid or willfully ignorant. They just don't understand how viruses and/or vaccines work.

    My force field is trained. My vaccinations came with no warning I would still get sick.

    I wish when posters posted, they used official sources.

    To be clear, why do you attempt to talk for Trump?

    Who knows. At this point the virus is mutating and all those jabs were designed before it got to Delta. Maybe they helped you avoid one of the other strains. IDK. I am not going to get the booster. They are going to have to start over before I take any more and by then, I will have had it for certain.

    The vaccine has reduced hospitalization in the UK by 95% and we in the UK have the delta variant. The vaccine also reduces rate of transmission resulting in lowering the rate of mutations. The unvaccinated will be the prime host for the virus to run through to eventually reach a variant that will not be so serious and will be treated just like seasonal flu. So we should thank the unvaccinated for volunteering to be the guinea pigs for the virus to replicate in

    You can keep pimping jabs all you want, but there is a growing body of real world evidence here in the US that is making the jabs look like snake-oil in relation to Delta.

    If they turned off the crackpot media and looked to real news sources they wouldn't be confused.

    99.9% of the people in hospitals from covid are not vaccinated.

    Stop spewing nonsense. That sort of mindless drivel is killing people.

    The Delta variant is the dominant variant in my country and the vaccine has reduced hospitalisation cases by 95%, you know, real evidence

    No, it doesn't. I shows that the 80% of the people vaccinated can still carry the virus.

    And it says right in your source

    "We know vaccines won’t completely prevent infections, but they are very effective at making hospitalizations and death preventable."

    Why do you ignore your own source? Did you even bother to read the two paragraphs or did you just read the headline?

    That 95% of patients did not have the vaccine does not mean that the vaccine reduced hospitalizations by 95% :roll:

    Infections among the vaccinated is a very difficult subject to understand – to understand it you need a knowledge of math at least 8th grade level.
    The vaccine has an efficacy of about 95%, it means that if we had 100% vaccination rate, out of 7,000 vaccinated staffers we expect that 350 still will get infected.

    So don’t worry, getting vaccinated was a good idea.

    What are you going on about? No one said that 95% of patients did not have the vaccine

    I read it. It still makes me wonder though. It also makes me wonder why they call it a vaccine. The flu shot is a shot. The things we are vaccinated for doesn’t hit us at all as far as I know. So why this one? I’m not so sure this mRNA was the best idea. All in all I blame China for accidentally letting a snake in their neighbors houses without telling them.

    You are unique in expressing any level of remorse for having taken the injections. I respect you and wish you all the best.

    As with any drug, some individuals seem to have no harmful side effects, and I hope that works in your favor.

    the vaccine targets the spikes, if the spikes change, it most likely won't be able to enter the cells as that is the keys into the cell

    could happen, but less likely, fingers crossed

    It causes the body to produce more spike proteins. Certain individuals become so loaded with those they are able to pass them on to others.
