The protein spikes, being alien, cause the immune system to see them and attack them. These are usually gone within a couple of days, but they caused antibodies that are now specific to the Covid-19 virus to be manufactured by the immune system.

The second dose a few weeks later, wakes up the cells that produce antibodies, and cause them to sound the alarm again - "Zeroes on the horizon! General quarters! Battle stations!"

The "Zeroes" turn out to actually be drones that look like a squadron of Zeroes in an attack formation.. A few anti-aircraft rounds are fired off, and the crews now know what an attack looks like, without the ship taking any bombs, torpedoes, or bullets from a strafing run.

And so now they have become battle hardened without taking casualties, so when a wave of Zeroes do show up with live ammo to try and sink them, now they've gotten some target practice, they've worked out the kinks of loading and aiming the guns, their pilots have gotten better at dogfighting and much better at hitting the enemy.

And the battle goes far better than a surprise attack against a ship with a green crew only fresh from boot camp.

Until a new variant comes out and the whole process must be started all over again.

And then a new variant comes out again and the whole process must be started all over again.

Ad infinum!

Such a simple explanation yet there are many many skeptics, not just here.

Yep. There's far too many of them who would rather sit docked at Pearl Harbor on December 6th, 1941 blissfully certain that the Japanese Empire couldn't possibly launch any serious attack all the way out to the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Right up until the next morning when thousands died on "a day that will live in infamy".

Once the torpedoes are in the water and bombs falling down the smokestack, it's too late.

So far it seems the Delta variant has protein spikes that are close enough that the vaccinated person's immune system recognizes it.

Now they think that mixing and matching vaccine brands may actually prime the immune for a little broader recognition

The thing is, this stuff mutates because not enough have been vaccinated to slow the spread from a Santa-Ana wind driven wildfire to a slow smolder. More virus infected people, more opportunities for mutations to take place, and better odds that a more contagious, more virulent strain will emerge that slips past the defenses primed by the present vaccines.

With a slower response, the more time the enemy has to come up with more stealthy ships and planes to invade.

It seems that way... but is it really that way? Does everybody's immune system recognize it that way? I'm sure there are exceptions, but what percentage see it that way and what percentage don't? Oh... that information is not yet available.

They think that now... but who really knows for sure... perhaps mixing and matching brands creates a more toxic cocktail that has adverse affects which have yet to be discovered. But over time... we'll know better.

80% of the Israelis have been vaccinate... isn't 80% enough or does it require 90% or 95% or higher?

The vaccination is still experimental... and it has been proven that even getting the vaccination doesn't keep you from getting COVID. They say it reduces the awful symptoms, but there's just not enough data and what little data has been collected is not being shared with the general public.

Did you know that the CDC just recently (the past few weeks) decided to change the rules for how to count COVID deaths? Now, they say that if a person who died of COVID who was vaccinated is NOT to be counted as a COVID death. Last year, they were counting those who died of other causes, but tested positive for COVID as a COVID death.

Last year, it was to drive the COVID numbers up to make Trump look bad. This year, they're trying to drive the number of vaccinated down to make Biden look good and also to put more pressure on those unvaccinated as now they only count the unvaccinated who test positive.

And the vaccination is still EXPERIMENTAL!!!

True. If everyone had antibodies there would not be any disease left to spread.

They aren’t even driving numbers down, they are ignoring anything that makes Biden look bad.  They forget all vaccines were developed under Trump.

Hello... that's oxymoronic to say the least.

By ignoring it... they don't count the numbers which in turn drives those numbers down!!!

So they are driving the numbers down.

They aren’t reporting low numbers, they are not reporting any.

But they are recording numbers and those numbers are lower than the actual count. Even if they haven't reported on any of them yet. Several months down the road, via a FOIA or some other disclosure, those numbers will come out... and by that time, many will forget that these numbers are watered down numbers and report those numbers as actually measured numbers.

Hiding the numbers now in a tactical deception.

FWIW

What if there's something physiologically unique about the majority of Israelis that doesn't apply to most other ethnicities, that greatly reduces the effectiveness of the specific vaccine they are using.

I heard that in terms of effectiveness and least side effects, they rank roughly as

Phizer

Moderna

Johnson and Johnson

AstraZenica

(and then there's a whole bunch of vaccines developed overseas that aren't even being used in the US, and many countries have such a low roll-out that it's comparing oranges to cucumbers)
