I suspect it's low. There'll be some befuddled justification or other.... :rolleyes:
I haven't spoken to any patients after they have been in ITU but those I have seen in A&E even if they didn't need hospital admission are very regretful that they didn't get vaccinated as they had suffered so badly with the disease. None of the unvaccinated with COVID-19 that I have seen were anti-vaxxers just people who thought they were young-ish & fit-ish so thought that even if they caught the disease they wouldn't suffer badly. One old lady had refused a second jab as she had mild flu-like symptoms after her first jab.

@nigelbb - I think you'd enjoy the vacine debate which rages intermittently in what was a thread about Brexit:

I know many people who can't be convinced to take the second shot... are they well on their way to becoming variant factories?

I really don’t think I would. I don’t have the time to argue the toss with stupid antisocial antivaxxers. They are like cult members & not amenable to reason.

I totally agree with you - if you win on one argument, it'd be just a small victory over one fragment of reason, unconnected in any logical way to any other within their overall fuzzy position... and any insight gained by them during a long arduous argument with you, is soon swamped by "Truth" from their preceived "Peers". It's ultimately unwinnable.

In fact the vast overwhelming majority of people do have two jabs & take up of boosters is just as good.

I'm sure you're right - it's just the people I know (elderly). They seem to be terrified of:

1. Going into hospital or a vaccination facility, for fear of getting infected.

2. Serious vaccine/booster side-effects, which are very rare.

I've given up trying to convince anti-vaxxers. I now take a similarly preposterous position, and quote this as proof that the pandemic was started by aliens, through the alien anal probe vector between species:


...I stick to this argument till they go away.

Guerney is deliberately misleading you with partial quotes and insinuations. The are almost no anti-vaxxers in the covid discussion thread he mentions. Every one of us constructively active in the discussion has had first and second vaccinations at least and those who can have had the booster. We are very pro accepting the vaccines and boosters and insist everybody should. That's true of every person he's quoted from that thread.

Some of us wish the vaccines were better at the primary vaccine function of preventing catching the disease and thus not being able to transmit it, but some seem to object to any mention of that preference.
