A busy week is good. You don’t have time to bother with ridiculousness.  

A few are getting Covid who are not at high risk and who are fully vaccinated. They aren’t sure why.

Someone who is British can’t understand Covid?

Well, he contradicts what he's saying with his own figures!!!

Go figure... maybe he doesn't understand Covid, has misguided information about Covid or just cannot do math! Being British may or may not have something to do with it, but he sure doesn't understand the situation in the US.

FWIW

Which shows the value of someone giving advice on the internet.

when you have a large enough sample size, there will always be a few statistical outliers. Probably there are more infection mechanisms that aren't fully understood, which result in a few breakthrough cases.

Still it's far, far less than the numbers one could have without vaccination

Another wild card though, is the mutations that keep emerging.

The IOC still insists on going through with the Olympics, while japan is in the midst of yet another outbreak, and the assorted new variants can mingle and possibly some can slip past vaccination defenses, and here we go again having to roll out a new booster vaccine specific to the new strains.

Are the boosters for new strains or because the vaccine wears off?  They said the current vaccines hit all strains of the virus.

I think it's technically because the immune system slowly lets its guard down over time. But the version the drive-by media said was the new mutant strains may have a slightly different protein spike structure which won't trigger the immune system response that the vaccines have primed it for, so as it continues to mutate, modified vaccine booster shots would be needed to prime the immune system for the new strains.

However, there would probably be a partial response to the mutant strains after vaccination for the original strain. One might get sick but not as sick as if not vaccinated at all.

But then there's so much misinformation out there, and so much anecdotal and speculative info that it's more of just an educated guess.

It seems that booster would tend to keep the disease in check, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
