So what's the issue now, antivaxers don't want the target groups to get the second booster

I think we don't need to explain again and again about the difference between an antivaxxer and a person who is just careful what he puts, or in this case got injected, into his body.

Wow long discussion

Anyway I am out.

Have to go to work.

That is because you keep insisting in your misunderstanding

It is not missunderstanding.

It is reading between the lines and understand the reality behind the things.

Always when you are going out of argues according the vaccine, you come up with other strange comparissons like blood transfusion, seat belts, sun blocker...

The topic here is a vaccine with a 4th shot, which shows in a study, can prevent for people over 60 and

did not show sufficient data for effectiveness for those under that age.

Let me explain to you for the last time:

Can prevent, means Yes it does prevent, or No it does not prevent.

Does not prevent means no effectiveness.

If a study shows, it does prevent means, it is effective. At least 1%.

And then each person, should decide how high is the value of effectiveness they expect to take the vaccine.

1% is enough...or better 20%....or 80%?

But this study shows, by saying can be prevent, that the prevention and the effectiveness can be zero.

So it is not yet proven as effective.

Another study you showed before, said 70% effeciency.

That is a clear outcome.

But this study here shows, can prevent and did not show sufficient data for effectiveness for those under that age.

That makes this 4th shot very very suspicious.

Well, Elvis gives you all the green light is that makes you all feel better.

Thanks Elvis...I am feeling much better and safe now.

It is interesting that people who don't want the vaccine need to seek validation by telling everyone.

It is not that people don't want to take the vaccine.

It is that people want to be sure that what got injected in their bodies brings the expected prevention and effectiveness.

other vaccines, polio vaccine CAN prevent deaths from polio, or hospitalization, or even infection

aspirin CAN prevent a headache

All these preventions are proven by studies and reality.

So we can clearly say, they DO prevent whatever they are made for.

But of course not 100%.

But here for the 4th shot, read again please the article...

Overseas studies have shown that fourth vaccine shots can prevent severe.

These studies show "can Prevent". Nothing is proven here as effective.

Therefore again....I said...But how high is the percentage of prevention or effectiveness must be investigated too.

 It has never been to protect 100% from catching it. No vaccine does that

Absolutely!

Everyone knows that!

Nobody is expecting a 100% effectiveness, but everyone is expecting a certain range of effectiveness.

What range of effectiveness people accept before taking the vaccine varies from person to person.

Some say a effectiveness of 30% is OK for me, some say I expect at least 70%...and so on.

Everybody decides by themselves..

But taking a vaccine which has just the status "can prevent" and "did not show sufficient data for effectiveness for those under that age", sounds really foolish to me.

But like I said, everybody is free to decide that by themselves.

*that if something is not 100% effective then it must be 0%?*

Can you please show where someone is saying that?

Nobody is saying that!

But would you take a vaccine or a medicine with an effectiveness of 1%?

I don't think so.

Therefore I said in my comment...But how high is the percentage of prevention or effectiveness must be investigated too.

In some comments from the past and links and reports, it was shown that the 1-3 shots have an effectiveness of about 70%. (something like that).

But for the 4th shot, here in the article, it doesn't say anything about percentage of effectiveness. It just says, it can prevent.

And additional for people younger than 60, it says clearly here in the article*, The studies, however, did not show sufficient data for effectiveness for those under that age.*

Me and all the people all over the world who are using their brains, would never put a fluid in their body, which only "can prevent".

If the effectiveness is clearly proven, then yes, we can talk about the fourth shot again.

And Keep in mind, we are talking here about a fluid which will be injected in your body, and you can not reverse that procedure after it is inside your body.

We are not talking here about a sun blocker which can be washed away, or a seat belt which can be take off easily...or whatever strange comparissons people bring up.

Additional...

The status "CAN prevent" is still experimental.

Because nobody knows if it really does prevent.

The status "DO prevent", that is effective.

Because the prevention is proven.

But how high is the percentage of prevention or effectiveness must be investigated too.

that it has proved to be useful even if not to a 100%,

You and all the experts told us nonstop the vaccine IS effective.

And now the study shows that the 4th shot CAN prevent severe symptoms.

Do you understand the difference between IS and CAN?

Can prevent completely contradicts IS effective.

So that means that all the comments and reports that the vaccine IS effective are losing all their value because now the study says only it can prevent....

But I guess they are talking just about the 4th shot.

If so, then why should someone take the 4th shot that is proven as "not effective" and just as "can prevent".

"Can prevent" means there is a possibility of prevention, but nobody knows how high is that possibility?

1%? or 2%?

Therefore, what also comes out here in the comments and if you talk with people out there, people who took the 3rd shot...almost everyone will refuse to take the 4th shot.

What does that mean? Can prevent...

They are not sure if it really prevents severe symptoms???

Then why should I take take it?

What does that mean? a certain period of time...

One day, one week, one month???

Many open questions.

My answer; No thank you!

Why? It doesn't seem to work very well.

Waste of time! Maybe if they had a vaccine that actually worked

it can lead to actually weakening the immune system and having the opposite effect

the CEO of Pfizer stated that as vaccines don’t work

there are a number of deaths and extreme side effects from vaccines

Summary and conclusion from all these comments:

It makes no sense to take this vaccine?

This article is again completely bad written and leave many questions open.

that a foreigner at a hotel in Dubai handed her a backpack containing the two books as souvenirs.

What does that exactly mean? Does she pledge innocent?

If yes...

Does she know that foreigner?

Two books as a souvenir...for whom?

In case she didn't know that foreigner, who the hell is so stupid to take a backpack from a person, you do not know, and bring for this person children books as a souvenir into japan?

And to whom should she give these books as a souvenir?

During a baggage inspection, customs officers found two children’s books with their back and front covers bulging one centimeter thick.

Bulging one centimeter thick...didn't she recognize that?

I want to know if this woman pledges guilty or not guilty.

Posted in: Shanghai reaffirms zero-COVID policy; WHO says it is not sustainable See in context

So China created a virus that they released on...themselves?

Created by themselves, and released by themselves or by accident.

Which cannot be verified because you said all proof is destroyed?

Maybe destroyed is the wrong word. Hiding is the better word. But I assume that also a lot of evidences were already destroyed.

Until today, China do not let anyone conduct a full investigation. They do not give fully access to their laboratories including fully access to all data and they do not let investigators talk to the correct persons.

In my opinion, China is hiding something.

China is hiding the truth behind the origin of this virus.

And I am still not convinced that this virus origin is natural.

I say, China create that virus in their laboratories and then set if free on purpose or by accident.

The CCP do not hesitate in anything!

(Best friends of Russia)

But I said that already many times here before...as long as there is no FULL investigation with FULL access to the Laboratory in Wuhan with FULL access to all data and experiments, and FULL access for the investigators to talk with ALL laboratory staff, I am not convinced that this virus is origin natural.

But that is not the topic here.

The topic here is their stupid Zero Covid Strategy.

But sometimes I am wondering why are they doing that?

Do they know AND HIDE something about the virus what the rest of the world do not know?

Or is it like AAA said?:

I heard an interesting take on this the other day. It could be a stress test to see how the urban populations deals with extreme duress like those they could potentially suffer if the CCP decide to invade Taiwan!

Or is it because the CCP is just stupid?

Who knows...

Maybe we will never know....

If they were this diligent at the beginning of this whole mess,

Absolutely!

From the beginning they handle this Virus in a complete mess.

They create this virus and then let it escape from their Laboratory in Wuhan.

They deported each person who has proof for that.

They destroyed all documents who proof that.

They don't give inspectors full access to data.

They still let people travel around the world and let them spread the virus around.

And now? Bringing their own population at the edge of their nerves.

Conclusion 1:

China completely failed in handling with what they create.

Conclusion 2:

China sucks!

They should get rid of the horrible side effects with which people are suffering after taking the vaccine.

A vaccine that pulls you off your feet and gives you a damned high fever, horrible headaches and whatever, for 3 consecutive days, is not really a motivation to take it.

This must really be improved from the vaccine makers.

Japanese officials believe the ban will have no impact on the government as it has had no plan to send a senior figure to Russia.

That is exactly the point.

Nobody Is interesting to go to Russia, so there is absolutely no problem with this entry ban.

Relations between Japan and Russia have sunk to their lowest level in decades.

So what? Who cares?

The Russian government is nothing more then a piece of s...t, and it is zero necessary to have a good relationship with such a insane massmurdering state and also with all its supporters and followers.

Isolate this mass murdering state and all its supporters and followers, and sooner or later they will crawl back and come back, and they will beg for doing buisness with them.

But then, the world should show them the middle finger, so that these as...les understand what they did and what they are still doing.

Posted in: The quest for a universal coronavirus vaccine See in context

This was my comment to your article in January 2022;

According that article it varies from 40% to 73% which is basically very good and much more than I expected.

Now it is May 2022!

Additional, The study in the article started in May 2021. One year ago.

And like you said, I was surprised, because I didn't believe that high percentage, and now in May 2022 and during the last months, the reality shows that my surprise at that time, or let me better say, my non believe was correct and your article from August 2021 is now proven as wrong by the reality.

At that time I said 40 to 73% is much more than I expected.

So my assumption at that time, before I read the article, was much lower.

And now the reality shows that my assumption, before I read the article was correct and that this article is wrong, based on the current reality.

Cases increase because of the effect of highly transmissible variants and relaxation of other measures

Now you contradicted again yourself.

You agree here that the cases increase. Even we have a vaccine!

And what you are saying with effect of highly transmissible variants, means that the vaccine do NOT help to prevent the transmission of those variants.

Which brings the conclusion, that the vaccine do not help to reduce the transmission and your article from 2021 is now proven wrong.

Even by yourself.

Because in May 2021, when that article study starts, we didnt have so much different highly transmissable variants.

Now after 1 year, with different highly transmissable variants, the reality let this article lose all its value.

So it seems that you agree with me, that now in May 2022, the vaccine is proven as no, or let me better say, no big help to reduce the transmission, because, like you said, of the highly transmissable variants.

I agree with you, it also because people let down their own personal preventions.

By why are they doing that?

People who do let down their personal preventions are mainly 3x vaccinated, and they think, that they can not spread or transmit the virus.

Why are they thinking like that?

Because they got told so by the experts and because of such false articles, which you posted with a link.

Posted in: The quest for a universal coronavirus vaccine See in context

People that want to have a much more realistic and rational approach than just personal beliefs are more interested in the development of vaccines

Yes, as long as the vaccine makes sense and shows a really trustworthy and safe effectiveness.

By the way, what you said yesterday in another article here was wrong.

The worst thing is that you already know this (because you asked for this reference and was even surprised the reduction was above 60 %) 

I guess you mentioned about a discussion I had with another poster in february, when I heard from him or her, that the effectiveness of the vaccine is 75%.

But that discussion was about the efficiency of the vaccine against hospitalzation and death. Not about transmission!

The other poster said the effectivness of the vaccine is about 75% for hospitaization and death.

Yes, I was surprised about that.

But that was no discussion about transmission.

But even I would have been surprised about a prevention in transmission for 60% or more, means that my surprise was correct, because now the reality shows us a complete different picture.

Like the example from SK yesterday.

Vaccine Rates increase, and so do the cases.

Plus the link of an article you posted yesterday is from August 2021.

Which is now already completely proven as false by the reality which we can currently see all over the world.

I agree that it helps to reduce hospitalization and deaths, but not transmission.

But anyway, this doesn't belong to this article here.

I just wanted to clarify that.

I also support development of new vaccines, but like I said as long as they make sense.

Which means, no horrible side effects for 3 or more days, like the current Covid one, and not every 4-5 months a new booster.

A good vaccine for me means:

I have to take it just once in my lifetime. Or maximum twice. And no side effects after I took it.

I take the influence vaccine every year, which is already a little bit troublesome.

But I am ok with that trouble, because since I took that influenza Vaccine every year, I was not sick anymore with Influenza A, B or C.

So basically I say, the influeza vaccine is a good one even I have to take it every year, but it seems to protect me and no side effects.

Posted in: Japan to limit 4th COVID vaccine to elderly, those with underlying conditions See in context

Sorry, last part of my post was missing...

Vaccine rates increased all over the world, so if its true that the vaccine helps to reduce the transmission, the Corona cases must go down, or at least stay stable.

But the cases increases everywhere.

Here In Japan, cases are stable and sometimes go down.

But not because of the vaccination rate, it is because people behave well, like wearing masks, hand sanitizers and such things.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

Posted in: Japan to limit 4th COVID vaccine to elderly, those with underlying conditions See in context

vaccines do help reducing transmission (which is true)

Which is absolutely not true.

That is what the so called experts are trying to tell us, but that is completely wrong.

Best Example is given from the other poster here about South Korea.

Vaccination rate of 86%, daily infections 400.000.

Vaccine rates increased during the last weeks and months in SK, and so did the cases.

Therefore, the vaccine do not help to reduce transmission.

People believe blindly what they got told, that vaccine do reduce transmissions, so they let down their basic protections, and therefore cases increase, because the vaccines do NOT help reducing transmissions.

People should not blindly believe what the experts and vaccine makers are trying to sell them.
