“and vaccines do not prevent infection by new variants”

Ergo, it’s better to wait until effective, safe, (emphasis) vaccines are developed, before taking anything currently on offer.

I hope this makes clear I’m not an anti-vaxxer.

“However, when students departing from school are walking down the street in a swarm that looks like an amoeba, 900% to 99% not wearing a mask or improperly, that IS a problem. 

Anyone NOT wearing a mask on the train IS a problem.”

“absolutely. get people working from home, students to do home schooling and shut down the schools, and do a proper lockdown for just 2-3 weeks and you will see the numbers go down”

While the suicide rate goes up, domestic violence increases...and cases increase back up as soon as it ends.

Not the answer

The vax should be given to the elderly vulnerable/ or those that want it. Pushing it on everyone is irresponsible.

"It is troubling how adamant pharma is at getting children experimentally injected 2 or 3 times each year for "the greater $$pharma$$ good"."

Agreed

If you want to take a rushed “cure”, conveniently available within a year of this virus appearing - when we couldn’t for decades find a permanent one for the flu, or aids, be my guest.

it’s officially in trial phase till 2023. So I will wait till then and if I must (never had a flu vax and done fine) I’ll take it. If it’s the only way to see my family back in Oz.

I’m not embracing the wilder theories out there, just advocating caution.
