Israeli report: Coronavirus patients who recovered from the virus were far less likely to become infected during the latest wave of the pandemic than people who were vaccinated against COVID (6.72 times more likely), according to numbers presented to the Israeli Health Ministry.
So according to this report, it seems all patients detected positive and reported every day here will build better protection than the one with the current vaccine against a future wave/variant should we get one, so hell yes, vaccinated people too should wear masks more than ever to avoid to catch new variant and keep social distancing to avoid both contamination & transmission of the disease to healthily people.

The government's stated approach of lifting controls now before any winter surge of respiratory disease is marked by "moral emptiness and epidemiological stupidity", said University of Bristol public health expert Gabriel Scally.
Expert in what? conflict of interest? No comment!

Side effects are real, a fear of them is normal, everybody is welcome to judge risk versus benefit and decide, just yesterday FDA added a new warning on J&J, at this time all new vaccines have already identified side effects, who can say today how many new warnings are going to be discovered in the next 2 or 3 years? It is exactly why vaccines need years and not months of pharmacovigilance. As a side note, a person not vaccinated DOES NOT EQUAL a sick one.

It can be as simple as killing and purifying the viruses or producing the protein directly on the lab.
Telling on the board that their "high tech novelty mRNA" was not needed after all, I believe you would say anything in order to push those products

The WHO couldn’t forecast a long weekend holiday.
The WHO’s function is to provide an announcement service for its funders. And as we have already witnessed, it better not deviate.

Crypto traders are interested in cashing out with big gains and turning their crypto into US Dollars, while claiming the US dollar is worthless and the entire Fiat currency system is going to crash and burn. They make no sense at all.
They are only turning "profit" in fiat, not their main investment, because our society does not provide yet a full way to live on crypto-only thanks to banks and gov (SEC), so it does perfectly make sense however things are changing like in San Salvador for example, recently accepting crypto as legal tender.

Public health experts estimate that approximately 70% of the world’s 7.9 billion people must be fully vaccinated to end the COVID-19 pandemic.
Disinformation at its best ! "must be fully vaccinated" should read "needs to be immune" so suddenly natural immunity does not exist anymore for those who already got the covid19 for thos "health expert" ? No better vaccine than the natural disease. No surprise they are losing all their credibility.

It is now known that age causes little difference in the efficacy or safety of the vaccine.
Well let's see what WHO says about Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine from 12 to 15 :
"WHO does not recommend vaccination of children below 16 years of age, even if they belong to a high-risk group."
Who should not take the vaccine?
People with a history of severe allergic reaction to any component of the vaccine should not take it.
The vaccine has only been tested in children above 16 years of age. Therefore, at this time, WHO does not recommend vaccination of children below 16 years of age, even if they belong to a high-risk group.
Does it prevent infection and transmission?
There is currently no substantive data are available related to impact of Pfizer BioNTech vaccine on transmission or viral shedding.
In the meantime, we must maintain and strengthen public health measures that work: masking, physical distancing, handwashing, respiratory and cough hygiene, avoiding crowds, and ensuring good ventilation

taking care of patient at the early stage is what makes the difference between life and death, lockdown is only necessary when you do not want to give your heath care system the necessary fund and support to work efficiently (when saving money is more important than saving life).

I have an idea, make consumption tax worldwide proportional to your wealth, the more you accumulate , the more things get expensive to you and the more you are participating to the world and the more affordable things will be for those who have poor income, time to redistribute at the end of the pipeline not at the source.

Finally we are seeing the wolf in the wood, the real agenda, as seen everywhere in the world, restrict freedom and impose general surveillance, Europe being the leader in the block in that matter, no one talk about improving the medical health system which failed because of lack of creating ICU beds (when not closing them during the pandemic) or how to take in charge @ EARLY STAGE any patient.

Of course the word "experimental" is a key definition word of this drug downplayed systematically by every mRNA extremist posters, ask yourself how parents will react if they were presented to this mRNA vaccine in a pure and honest ethically way by a doctor "Do you give your consent that we inject your children an experimental drug now?" No surprise it is downplayed, it can appeal only to one who will get a financial benefit of the vaccination, difficult to imagine parents willing to submit their children to something experimental with a balance/risk so heavy in the risk zone.

So how will the all process be installed if carried by private companies and not gvt? Employee have to sign a discharge and renounce to any claim in case of side effect before receiving the shot or are they still covered under the Gvt's umbrella and entitled to the same compensation?

@gakinotsukai, the numbers I wrote are nothing relative to test, they are the ACTUAL numbers of people hospitalized @ today's date with serious conditions as reported in the linked URL data page I posted, I calculated myself the relative % to the global population of Japan, that's all..
-6 ( +2 / -8 )
The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is 62
Whole Japan is 385 (~0.0003% of the population or 1 per 328,051) with an average age of 64 :
80s : 83 70s : 128 60s : 91 50s : 55 40s : 28
No one below 40s in serious condition.

@jsapc, you have perfectly the right to have the opinion that the VAERS's data means nothing and have no correlation with the act of doing the vaccination and that the whole process is a waste of time and resources if you want, I have a different opinion.

It is frustrating, to state truth and be ignored and/or down-voted.
But many who are silent, still read.
Frustrating but not surprising, indeed it is pretty common to witness manufacturers jumping into denial-mode downvoting comments and ramping-up the troll-bot army to fight any articles which refer to possibilities that their products might have a flaw in the design and/or being not as harmless as advertised. Personally I cannot judge however I have nothing to sell and no conflict of interest in that matter and I only wish people who are about to get the shot with mRNA form themselves or children just have enough reading to give a real consent and not a forged/imposed one.
