You have a reasonable protection (50%+) from getting (asymptomatically) infected and a 85%+ protection from getting a severe case from about 14 days after the first dose, ample data from Israel, Scotland, als elsewhere shows.And I nearly forgot to mention that lots of people believe they are protected right after the first dose when that’s only true two weeks after the second dose. I can look up the study I’m referring to later.
To be honest, I don't think you're doing "the debate any favors" by ending it after your main argument against me personally has collapsed. You could apologise for accusing me of being just another "Impfneider" based on nothing but thin air. If that doesn't constitute "lashing out", i.e. a personal attack, I don't know what does.I don't think that by lashing out against the few things that are being done right you are doing yourself or the debate any favors.
And I nearly forgot to mention that lots of people believe they are protected right after the first dose when that’s only true two weeks after the second dose. I can look up the study I’m referring to later.
If 20% percent believe this and act on this belief, we've got a huge problem because they will simply be giving the virus another opportunity at immune escape.Just over 44% of adults reported that the vaccines provide strong protection against Covid-19 by 1 to 2 weeks after the second dose (in keeping with CDC guidelines), about 20% believed the vaccines provide strong protection before the second dose, and 36% were unsure.
I notice that we agree. You today, me one month ago:Maybe ignore this rant, it doesn't add to the discussion - I'm just mad and had to type it out somewhere:
Dude, you insult me, don't apologise when given the opportunity, assume wildly and wrongly (again) what is angering me and then tell me that I'm angry at the wrong things. I think you might want to stop telling people how to discuss, let alone get psychological help.I just think in typical German left fashion you picked the wrong example (a bit like with Mumia Abu-Jamal).
I did not mean to insult you, and if I did (I guess you refer to "Impfneid"), I apoplogize.

Of course Pfizer's CEO drums up the off-chance of boosters being needed since a six-month booster regimen would be pretty amazing for his company, commercially.Comirnaty’s six-month data is a testament to the vaccine’s durability, which is likely to be maintained up to at least 12 months following the initial two-dose regimen, said Phase III Comirnaty investigator Dr Stephen Thomas, chief, Infectious Disease Division, Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, New York. The six-month data from the Phase III portion of the Phase I/II/III trial showed a 3.7-point drop to 91.3% efficacy against symptomatic disease based on 850 confirmed infections in the placebo arm and 77 in the Comirnaty arm, according to a 1 April media release.
In general, a vaccine that triggers a durable response for the first six months typically has longer-term durability, Thomas added. And so, despite mRNA vaccines being a new technology, it is unlikely that Comirnaty’s efficacy will drop below 50% protection in the next six months, he noted. Regulatory agencies’ passing grade for Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs) is 50%.
