Trust me the anti vaxxers will not change their mind if they go the way that Austria is doing. They will just be loader and have more stupid protests. I’ve had it with those people. They were even protesting the vaccine mandates here during the Remembrance Day ceremonies here in Vancouver yesterday. The nerve and disrespect of these people is astounding. Nothing will change their minds sadly. But with that said yes we should do what Austria is doing! Make it as hard as possible for them to live their lives without the vaccine.

Couldn’t this be considered manslaughter?

And obviously, he wasn’t vaccinated.

So this new variant seems to be getting a lot of pub, despite no one really knowing how dangerous it could be

The guesswork is it’s as contagious as delta and escapes the vaccines (which we don’t know how severe illness would be for those vaccinated)

Even some of the doctors who usually call them “scariants” due to the media freaking out are showing some signs of caution.

We aren’t done with covid until the rest of the world can catch up.

Until then i think it’s likely we have a booster shot every 6-12 months

We should have vaccinated more of the world when we had the chance.

If it’s more transmissible than Delta, doesn’t it have to be less deadly?

My understanding is there’s no evidence that the vaccines won’t work.

But, in advance, let’s thank the unvaccinated (and they’re everywhere!) for ruining everything again.

It’ll be interesting once the data size is large enough to be clear

Delta is one of the most infectious diseases ever so if Omicron is above that then…crazy.

Not sure if a virus has to be less deadly if super contagious but that’s out of my realm.

We can agree that this is due to the richest countries hoarding vaccines and allowing Africa to fall behind.

Not that the USA used up all the vaccines we could, and with 40% still unvaccinated that’s a large enough sample to mutate quickly like we’ve seen over the last two years.

I was hopeful that this latest wave were about to experience would be our last but might be looking at another spring surge too if this variant takes over

My non scientific brain hopes that the speedier transmission will also lead to a speedier burn out.

I'm basing this on nothing more than the knowledge that I can't mentally take this much more of this shit, and something that's worse and that gets around the vaccines is something I just don't want to think about.

Idk maybe if they know this variant is going to be a problem, start working on a booster for it now before it runs rampant across the western world? We were told that one of the benefits of mRNA technology was the potential expediency of vaccine modifications.

Pharma says they can start clinical trials within 60 days and have a booster by summer

Eric Topol from UCSD has been talking forever about a pancovid vaccine that would basically cover ALL variants going forward. We have the technology and smarts now but need the dedication to get it done

Doing a bit of reading, in SA at least, the problem of their low vax rate was more lack of demand than inadequate supply.

Not that the world doesn’t need more vaccines, but anti-vaxxers/apathy are everywhere.

The South Park Post COVID special was both funny and depressing at the same time.
