that are far better run and invest in employee safety. At my company for example, the company provides weekly testing for everyone including those who have been vaccinated because as people should know by now, the vaccine doesn't protect against infection and its efficacy against the newer strains is still very much unknown.
If the currently approved vaccines don’t prevent infection, what’s the point? The US FDA has approved based on tests showing pretty high efficacy and practical applications in the US, Israel has shown the testing to be pretty accurate.
No vaccine prevents
any infection......that is not it's purpose, nor design. The purpose of any vaccine is to protect the individual from serious implications from the given disease, and possibly potential death. If one becomes infected, the antibodies (from the vaccine) attack and destroy the disease and, in doing so, prevent it mutating. But a vaccine itself has no way of preventing one from becoming infected
. The whole purpose of any vaccine programme is to stop the spread of a disease by preventing mutation, and thus developing into more deadly forms. Not meaning yourself in any way, but too many on here simply spout nonsense.
To the vaccine hesitant;
Vaccines prevent hospitalization, spread and severe symptoms.
The long haul symptoms seem to be nerve damage. That can be loss of taste, loss of smell, nerve pains.https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/2020090 ... -survivors
People worry about rare or minor vaccine symptoms, the long haul symptoms are annoying:https://www.ninds.nih.gov/Current-Resea ... ous-system

Best never to get those symptoms.
I am normally annoyingly energetic. This weekend I was lathargic as tinnitus from Covid19 just wore me down. Now the healing, ironically, made it worse (I have had 1 dose of vaccine). While I will plow through, you don't want this.
I still cannot taste animal fat, including dairy. Butter and bacon are meh... Think about that. Hamburger and cheese is meh... I am lucky their. One of my cousins cannot taste food months later; to say the least, it is easy to meet a weight loss goal when food has no flavor except for a few intense spices.
One of my teenage nephews wakes up screaming at night from nerve pain due to covid-19. He is the captain of his high school football team and inherited the high family tolerance for pain.
A neighborhood child has inverted taste (all food tastes rotten).
So those complaining about worrying about the vaccine. Who do you personally know who had a bad side effect? Coronavirus killed a coworker, gave 3 heart attacks (including two who shouldn't have been at risk), scared the hell out of one coworkers lungs, and I personally know dozens of people fatigued from it.
I will take vaccine concerns seriously, but they are overplayed.
I am flying end of May. I will be fully vaccinated. A huge fraction won't be fully vaccinated. I won't worry about the unvaccinated except for special cases then. (I do assume children's vaccines are common then.)
Some high fraction of the population will not vaccinate. That means this virus will remain with us.
5 months without TV. The best decision of my life.
