Omicron infects the double, triple, quadruple, quintuple and sextuple "boosted" as well as anyone else, so I realy wonder how long people will go along with this.

What's the matter - don't trust this guy?

And according the Israel Report, the 4th booster has a higher concentration than the third booster, and even so it is not enough for protection.

How can the 3rd booster give enough protection if the concentration is lower than the 4th booster, which protection is not enough?

Therefore, even the Kobe Report said Antibody levels soar over sixtyfold, the protection is probably not enough.

Probably.

Antibody levels soar over sixtyfold after COVID booster shots, Kobe University team says

but they forgot to continue the sentence...

Antibody levels soar over sixtyfold after COVID booster shots, Kobe University team says...for just ten weeks.

Then the effectiveness goes down to 45% or less.

After 10 weeks, the 45% is similar like the flu vaccine.

But even the flu vaccine offers protection from 40% up to 60%.

But what did everyone said? Covid is NOT the flu.

And according the Israel report, the 4th booster with a higher concentration is not enough effective.

So the 4th booster is already completely out of the question.

And a vaccine (3rd booster) who just gives a protection for 10 weeks is not necessary to take (in my opinion), except people do accept that a protection of 45% for Covid is enough for them.

So if people accept that the protection from the Covid vaccine, after 10 weeks, is the same or even lower than the flu vaccine, then of course they can go ahead and take it.

But which protection can people get, who are not satisfied with 45% after 10 weeks of the booster?

And another question is, how long does this 45% be valid after the 10 weeks? Will it go down to 0% after another 4 weeks or so?

Like I said, the 4th booster is so far out of the question.

So let's see what will come next.

But for the Bejing Olympic athletes, 10 weeks protection is enough.

I think the Olympics is over in 10 weeks.

Something very familiar about all this. As if it just happened last summer.

When do these games even start?

It doesn't matter. Let me know when women's curling starts up.

Third shot for healthy privileged Olympic athletes, people with underlying health problems can wait their damn turn. How screwed up is that?

I don't see why Winter Olympians get to the right to source vaccine before others. Allow everyone to source their own boosters then.

I can think of dozens of categories of workers that should get their vaccines first (either because of health needs or being "essential workers" in a wide sense).

China must be rubbing its hands with glee that inbound athletes get these boosters, in the hope that adverse reactions hamper the competition.

This madness ends the moment you say 'no more'.

At least they are not being forced!

Choice is very important!

The sound of empty barrels is deafening. There is no way to silence these idiots, they just don’t, can’t or won’t listen to anything except their own voice rehashing the same nonsense. It’s incredibly frustrating.

@Meiyouwenti

Oh, so you have access to a parallel universe where the vaccine does not exist, and you've seen that covid cases and deaths are identical? That's so cool! Great for you!

Otherwise, you'd have no way to make your claim that "it’s quite obvious that the vaccines don’t work"

You simply don't have the empirical proof for that claim. The same goes for the reverse claim, btw.

Looking forward to my 21st booster in 2028!

Seems like vaccine companies are taking some advantages as well.

The Beijing Winter Games playbook, which outlines infection prevention measures, says the organizing bodies "strongly encourage games participants to receive a booster shot."

Third shot is not an infection prevention measure. In Denmark and Finland where statistics are available, already more double vaccinated people in intensive care than not vaccinated. How’s that for an ”infection prevention measure”.

3rd shot is not really necessary.

Even the 4th shot makes no sense.

But probably number 5 or 6?
