Good point actually. I questioned this earlier as I was thinking about
in the USA we have basically three vaccines. We have heard about
bacteria being resistant due to overuse of antibacterials and
antibiotics. This is a little different.

The greatest threat is in the unvaccinated population who continue to
harbor the virus, there will always be some for one reason or another.
The bigger the host population the more the viruses environment shapes
the newer generations. Resistance can build.

The other point is, vaccinated people can still host the virus and
spread it to others, they are just less likely to get the serious
disease outcome than the unvaccinated. This is no magic bullet, it is
just another common-sense weapon in the battle against the virus.


The good news is the vaccines seem to work better than first anticipated in
terms of preventing the disease at all.

i've had 3 shots already


How much time is left on the shot clock?

Nope, it's the reverse of that, the virus can only mutate in infected
people and so the fewer that get infected, the less the chance of it
mutating.


Exactly!


So we should be using it sparingly.


Nope, we should be vaccinating as many as possible with the best
vaccines to reduce the number who get infected.


Yup. And they are nearing what they think is herd immunity in New York.
Amazing.


Dunno, nothing useful on that with

Did more looking into this.


Need 70% to get to herd immunity:


Its nothing like that simple now with the new more virulent strains.

https://www.jhsph.edu/covid-19/artic...h-covid19.html


That doesnt say that it only needs to get to 70%.

New York close to 70%


Even that isnt clear.

That isnt saying that its close to 70%.

That does clarify that it is just one shot, not both -- so they will still
not be quite at the 70% *fully* vaccinated.


And there is no evidence that the 70% is the required level.

Only if you take his "everyone" literally and assume that it is 100
percent effective at preventing "hosting" the virus. It seems you don't

A relevant part:

"At this point, data is not yet clear on whether the vaccines from
Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech, while highly effective at preventing
symptomatic disease, also stop the spread of the virus.

Herd immunity is only relevant if we have a transmission-blocking
vaccine. If we dont, then the only way to get herd immunity in the
population is to give everyone the vaccine, says Shweta Bansal, a
mathematical biologist at Georgetown University in Washington D.C.

In the U.S., the predominant variant now circulating is the B.1.1.7,
which is about 60% more transmissible than the initial strain that
first plagued our globe. Experts now believe a threshold of at least 80
percent of the population would need to be immune to significantly slow
or stop the spread. That number could be even higher if more contagious
variants continue to develop."

Nope, it's the reverse of that, the virus can only mutate in infected
people and so the fewer that get infected, the less the chance of it
mutating.
Exactly!

So we should be using it sparingly.
Nope, we should be vaccinating as many as possible with the best
vaccines to reduce the number who get infected.
Yup. And they are nearing what they think is herd immunity in New

Amazing.

Did more looking into this.
Need 70% to get to herd immunity:


It is COVID fatigue causing compromises I think,


There is no compromise involved.

85 to 90 percent is better


And necessary with the newer more virulent strains.

but 70 sounds more "doable" at this point in time.


Corse a lower number is more doable.

Not enough IMO.

You do actually with the R0 of the new more virulent strains.

And so is my later elaboration on that too.

The best of the covid vaccines have been shown to dramatically
reduce the rate of covid infection in the vaccinated. They don't
just reduce the rate of severe infection and death as you
previously claimed in another of your posts.

It isnt about immunity reduction, its about an increased R0 and we know that

A relevant part:

"At this point, data is not yet clear on whether the vaccines from Moderna
and Pfizer-BioNTech, while highly effective at preventing symptomatic
disease, also stop the spread of the virus.


That part is just plain wrong.
https://www1.racgp.org.au/newsgp/cli...cines-do-reduc

Herd immunity is only relevant if we have a transmission-blocking vaccine.


And we now know that we do.

If we dont, then the only way to get herd immunity in the population is
to give everyone the vaccine,


Thats wrong too. It doesnt need to be everyone and
you get herd immunity if enough get infected too.

says Shweta Bansal, a mathematical biologist at Georgetown University in
Washington D.C.


In the U.S., the predominant variant now circulating is the B.1.1.7, which
is about 60% more transmissible than the initial strain that first plagued
our globe. Experts now believe a threshold of at least 80 percent of the
population would need to be immune to significantly slow or stop the
spread. That number could be even higher if more contagious variants
continue to develop."


And its even higher again with the indian and brazil variants.

This means that while hosting the virus their systems present an
environmental selection against the currently targeted shapes of the
various vaccines' antibodies.

The other point is, vaccinated people can still host the virus

serious disease outcome than the unvaccinated.

Good point actually. I questioned this earlier as I was thinking about
in the USA we have basically three vaccines. We have heard about
bacteria being resistant due to overuse of antibacterials and
antibiotics. This is a little different.

The greatest threat is in the unvaccinated population who continue to
harbor the virus, there will always be some for one reason or another.
The bigger the host population the more the viruses environment shapes
the newer generations. Resistance can build.

The other point is, vaccinated people can still host the virus and
spread it to others, they are just less likely to get the serious
disease outcome than the unvaccinated. This is no magic bullet, it is
just another common-sense weapon in the battle against the virus.


The good news is the vaccines seem to work better than first
anticipated in
terms of preventing the disease at all.

an
How did you manage that?Â* What does the NHS app tell you?


The NHS app gives the date administered, name of vaccine and batch

Default Vaccine causes virus mutations?

Yes and no. The problem is it mutates in any case, as RNA genetic sequences
are more error prone on copying than dna ones. Thus its swings and
roundabouts. as has been proved with Flu. IE even if you did not get the
yearly flu jab, some immunity remains but due to mutation you will still
get ill, that is why they give a basket of various best guess mutations to
you. The same effect will occur here, as has been proved with many other
viruses including the close relative known as Sars 1.

There is no perfect answer but we can respond faster than the virus can, as
the virus is basically mutating all the time and its only those where
mutations mean it can do its job better that stay in the population. All the
common colds we get were probably once serious virus that would kill us, but
over te years the immunity has improved faster than the mutations to get
around these. You have to remember that viruses are not thinking creatures
they are just driven by a simple chemical key that hijacks cells to make
more virus. Its not clear why they exist, but in our universe, anything that
can occur will occur, so looking for a reason is pointless.

Viruses can only mutate in an infected person.

Nope, not with covid.

IE even if you did not get the yearly flu jab, some immunity remains but
due to mutation you will still get ill, that is why they give a basket of
various best guess mutations to you.


But so far only one covid strain has been shown to
infect someone who has been previously infected.

The same effect will occur here,


Nope, for that reason.

as has been proved with many other viruses including the close relative
known as Sars 1.


SARS didn’t infect more than once.

There is no perfect answer


There is on that question he asked, vaccinate most
people and it will no longer be a problem, as we
have seen with measles, mumps, scarlet fever,
yellow fever, polio, smallpox etc etc etc.

but we can respond faster than the virus can,


It’s the reverse actually.

as the virus is basically mutating all the time


But not necessarily getting better all the time.

and its only those where mutations mean it can do its job better that stay
in the population.


That mangles the real story too given that be best
vaccines do currently appear to be effective against
most or maybe even all the variants, unlike with flu.

All the common colds we get were probably once serious virus that would
kill us,


That’s not true either.

but over te years the immunity has improved faster than the mutations to
get around these.


If that was true, the common cold would have killed
those savages who had no immunity when infected
white men showed up and we know that didn’t happen.

You have to remember that viruses are not thinking creatures they are just
driven by a simple chemical key that hijacks cells to make more virus. Its
not clear why they exist,


Basically they evolved, just like everything else did.

but in our universe, anything that can occur will occur,


That’s not true either.

so looking for a reason is pointless.


We already know the reason, evolution.

Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech, while highly effective at preventing
symptomatic disease, also stop the spread of the virus.


That part is just plain wrong.

So the words 'reduce' and 'stop' are synonyms to you?


To be fair, reducing transmission may bring the rate down enough that
the virus cannot transmit to enough hosts and dies out, so a reduction
could cause a stop.
