      • Thanks Andrew for your response to Steve. Vaccine efficacy has taken a hit with the Omicron variants but the data is clear. Vaccinated (2 shots) people are 5 times less likely to die from Covid than the unvaccinated. Additionally, if you are boosted you are 3 times less likely to die than those who received only 2 shots.
        I remain baffled about where the antivaccine folks get their data. Happy to forward research on request.

    • Nobody claimed the vaccines would stop people catching the virus. What they did say was that the vaccines would boost people’s defences which would lead to fewer deaths or hospitalizations.

      • @Caroline: It’s called freedom to decide what we choose to put in our bodies. I know, it may appear as a shocking concept to you.

        On a side note, Caroline: I have friends who traveled to India in the past and they were ADVISED to to get certain jabs. What I do NOT recall, is those people DEMANDING that ALL of India’s population gets those jabs as well, so THEY (the travelers) can be “safe” and “protected” for the “common good”. That’s Bullshit Zombie Hive-Mind “Logic”. But please, by all means, get your quarterly injections, keep triple masking and social-distance yourself in perpetuity, to maintain the illusion that all this is somehow magically “protecting” you (and “others”), because “others” obviously matter so much to you to the point of wanting to silence “other” voices who don’t share your delusional fantasies. Damn, girl! You’re something else! In fact, such devotion and dedication to the Corporate Narratives is quite commendable. If only it would be directed towards more constructive avenues… Otherwise, you are directly supporting the not-so-sublet onset of TYRANNY. And there is NO vaccine against that.

        And if you don’t “get” this, then it’s most likely too late for you. There will be other who’s time to awaken will come.

        Slàinte Mhath, mo leannan bhoidheach!
