Gotta be honest, I won't be scaling back what I'm doing, we're fully vaxxed so that's that as far as I'm concerned. If we get it again then we get it again.

We had influenza A recently and that was far worse.
Agree - I can see NRL chaos ahead though ..

Guys, these vaccines are working perfectly. Roll those sleeves up
This is due to a new variant. Was this known when vaccines were first rolled out? No.

This appears to be a very mild variant compared to the earlier strains which were the reason vaccines were implemented.

For the record I won't be rushing to get another vaccine for a while, one per year is enough for me.

This is just something we live with now, I won't be going back into my shell unless a severe strain emerges.

Yep, the evolutionary pressure on the virus is the evasion of immunity, both vaccinated and natural. I'm assuming that omicron has also cemented itself as the dominant variant by providing natural immunity against previous variants e.g Delta.

Hopefully future versions continue to become less virulent, though there is some non peer-reviewed studies that suggest BA.5 has taken more of a liking to the lungs than previous omicrons.

I'm like yourself. I'm not going to have any other shots for now. I'll wait to see whether they come up with a better updated vaccine down the track. If I was 70+ I'd be having the 4th though.

natural immunity is stronger then vaccine immunity…don’t post bs and try to confuse people, especially a vaccine that had shocking trial results -everyone is free to look them up yourself

The human body is an amazing thing

If the shots were that good you would be getting your 4th and 5th and 6th, after just 3 weeks their Efficacy is basically nothing, Everyone should be wary of taking more of these shots. Pfizer has made $83 billion in ONE year and now they want more.

One of the first things they tell you in med school;
A patient cured is a patient lost

Don’t let that fly over your head

Yep. Very moral company that Pfizer. Proudly hold the record of paying out the largest criminal fine in US history. A greedy money making machine.

Was the morality of a drug company ever up for debate? Pharmaceutical companies are amongst the biggest earners world wide.


Taking the Vaccine and questioning the ethics of Pfizer are not mutually exclusive.

Pharmaceutical company makes large profit from pandemic. Wowzers.

Could almost think that being a company who is able to provide a product the entire world needs might be good for business. But of course its a conspiracy.

Which part of my post were you referring to? Where did I say that natural immunity was weaker than vaccine immunity. Where was I even talking about the quality of shots?

I'm starting to think that you're a 14 year old with the mental capacity of a 12 year old.
