Also, how much longer before this virus mutates a vaccine resistant strain? Are we just going to keep poking ourselves with the same formula as they become increasingly useless?
Plus, I'm a little confused about rode's response that "it doesn't work like that, when the article he posted seems to directly say that indeed, "it does work like that".
I think my comment was misunderstood by rode.
With the delta being the big variant right now, and the number of breakthrough cased combined with the obvious reduction in vaccine effectiveness, I do wonder if we've already crossed the threshold of the usefulness of the current vaccine.But we should still be careful. As mentioned earlier, numbers matter when it comes to resistance. The more viruses that are around – as in a rapidly growing pandemic – the more likely it is one may hit the jackpot and develop mutations resulting in a significant impact on vaccine efficacy. If that’s the case, a new version of the vaccine may be necessary to create antibodies against these mutated viruses.
Perhaps it's time to start on a new one?
Again, I'm not opposed to additional jabs, but I don't just want to keep sticking myself with an obsolete formula.
