    And the same for the war on drugs. Fortunately, there seems to be a start of solid change for the better on that front.

    The loss of protection after 6-8 months against hospitalization is not yet settled science, especially for the under-60 population. Imo there is insufficient data at this point.

    That's not the conclusion I draw from Table 2. Perhaps the number of breakthrough infections rise after 4-6 months, but there's no evidence in those numbers that the vaccine doesn't continue...

    Well it's impossible to make Covid disappear, considering its mutation rate.

    Hmmm I read hospital admission for unvaccinated people with Delta is twice as likely as with alpha, based on Scottish data.

    IAG shares went further down the drain, should have sold them when they had a pre-gamma variant peak (what sense is there in predicting what's going to happen when I don't follow up my own advice). ...

    I'm not too worried about this winter, unless another variant emerges on short order that escapes the antibodies generated by the most common vaccines (Pfizer, Astra-Zeneca).

    Guess that's what happens if you build policy based on the alpha variant when a much more contagious delta variant is about.

    It's not realistic to expect vaccines to provide 100% protection from infection and disease; I don't see any of the vaccine makers claiming that either.
