Let's hope he doesn't get any Bad Medicine and it's administered by needle into his arm and not Shot Through the Heart.

I thought he was “vaccinated?” Oops!

Yup.

Here's the reality: "fully-vaccinated" people not only can contract the virus, but also spread the virus the same as unvaccinated. Hopefully he doesn't get very ill and recovers quickly.

These MANY "breakthrough" cases highlight the uselessness of the "vaccine passport" concept that divides society into a two-tier dystopian reality : Valids vs Invalids.

The fully vaccinated do not suffer the same as the unvaccinated and have less chance of passing it on.

Fully vaccinated people can contact and give the virus forward (albeit with a much smaller chance).

The vaccine is not a barrier but a tool training your immune system to fight the virus once you get it (ya still following?). As such, the vaccinated have a much better chance at survival. Get my drift? (gotta check it from time to time, as in questioning the intelligence of those questioning the usefulness of the vaccine)

Less chance of passing it? Why?

Suffer. yes i agree

Im very curious, iv read many arguments, but i have yet to see this

A small percentage of fully vaccinated people will still get COVID-19 if they are exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19. These are called vaccine breakthrough infections.

People with vaccine breakthrough infections may spread COVID-19 to others. However, it appears that vaccinated people spread COVID-19 for a shorter period than do unvaccinated people.

Vaccination also might make illness less severe. If you are fully vaccinated, the overall risk of hospitalization and death due to COVID-19 is much lower than among unvaccinated people with similar risk factors.

Less chance of passing it? Why?

The body knows how to fight and will attack the virus before it has the chance to explosively spread, as it happens in non-vaccinated. So this brings two benefits (besides the obvious ones):

1: the shortened time one is contagious means there is less days to give it to others.

2: reduced virus density in the excreted aerosols (which come from the lungs)

Of course we'd all like to start up the entertainment/sports/cultural industry back onto its feet again because it all took a whopping from last year. Even though with the fatality rate not being high in the first place, the danger still exists. The vaccine isn't a cure-all but it does mean if you get it your chances of survival are better than they would've been otherwise.

Nonetheless, this ain't no time for fooling around, we have all got to do our part and that means quit listening to these kooky sassymouth anti-vaxxers and get on the ball. We will beat this pandemic, it's a matter of when but we gotta use our heads.And JBJ is doing just that.

I've seen you guys live about 5 years ago, Bon Jovi and you were terrific. Thing was, when you did your cover of 'Go Johnny Go' that night, I didn't know until the next day that Chuck Berry was dead. You take it easy and get some Good Medicine. Waita minute, waita minute! We're all praying for a speedy recovery, live on our prayers and we'll be there for you. (here's where the electric sitar kicks in). Have a nice day.

But we have to listen to the media? Because CNN or the NYT tells us to? No, I don’t think so, if you want to beat this pandemic then it needs to be done in a smart and less emotional manner. We are all built different and some of us might have a negative or serious side-effects from the vaccine, being cautious and discussing the best option about what is good or which vaccine we should take depends. That’s the smart and rational way. I am not a huge fan of JBJ but he’s a good musician and I hope he recovers from this soon.

All people are built the same, with the same organs. All people are subject to the same range of contagious diseases and no one is immune to them. Catching a contagious disease and surviving helps the body to make anti-bodied which aid in any future infections. But not necessarily with variants of the disease.

We don't need to listen to CNN or NTT to know the basic biology is the same for all.

Most people take many vaccinations during the course of their lives from cradle to grave. None are 100%, and some people, unfortunately, suffer side effects but the benefits to the vast majority outweigh those.

The pandemic can only be beaten with vaccinations which have proved to be effective in reducing the number of cases and deaths.

The vaccinated have a 90% chance of not being infected and a 50% chance of not infecting others.

"While COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at preventing severe disease, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19 and also reduce the likelihood of mild or asymptomatic infection, a small share of fully vaccinated individuals do become infected, and some become hospitalized or have died. These rare occurrences are known as “breakthrough cases” which are to be expected, and historically known to occur with other vaccines as none is 100% effective."
