I just don't understand how anti-vacc is a thing, with or without COVID.

The misinformation is obviously coming from somewhere, I have had family members share anti-vacc stuff on WhatsApp, god knows where they are getting it from.

The government really should offer blood testing for people to see if they already have Covid antibodies or T cells. This would save a lot of wasted money on mass vaccination.

I would imagine the blood testing would be much more expensive than the vaccine. Cost aside, the approach may make sense in the US where they are apparently approaching herd immunity, we wouldn't be close.

Because most people reportedly don't develop the antibodies for long enough, so theres no long term protection, whereas the vaccines offer at worst a year, at best 3.

As for herd immunity, didn't think you could do that against Covid 19 without a vaccine.

These are people who have natural immunity pre covid. Via infection from other coronaviridae. Ie Colds and flu's.
Not saying no one needs a vaccine, but there's potentially millions who don't.

It effectively will be, and that is what they are protesting about.

Do you think it should be mandatory?
No it shouldn’t be mandatory except if you are a health professional, aged care worker, have anything to do with hotel quarantine or want to travel overseas or enter the country. Other than that you decide if you want it or not which is pretty much what is happening no?

No, sounds like you don't live in NSW.

Check out what our sleazy, hypocritical lying premier is saying about "incentives". She is trying to make it mandatory via businesses and organisations.

Then you'll know why these people are protesting. Maybe you will be joining them.

Anti-vaxxers are f***ed in the head and should be laughed at but what is far, far more damaging, is the blatant misinformation and deliberate hiding of the fact that the vaccines that are being rolled out in Australia now, in all probability, will NOT stop you contracting Covid19 and will NOT stop you from transmitting this disease to other if you do get it. The manufacturers themselves admit this and the data thus far from the UK tends to bare this out.

The vaccines are safe enough however, in the UK, they are not vaccinating children 8 and unde because there is some evidence that it may be detrimental them and that even though the cases of Covid19 are slightly falling, in the 80 year old plus cohort who were the first to receive the vaccinations, there has not been much of a discernable difference in acquiring the disease nor the death rate and the evividence thus far, points to the lockdowns being the primary reason for the decline in Covid cases across ALL age groups.

The reason I present these facts so vehemently is because Morrison and his Government, egged on by the money men and bean counters, are making false and misleading statements like, "today is the first day back towards normality" and the most stupid, Trump like proclamation that we can soon start treating this virus "the same way as we do the flu". These and other statements will have the effect of making people stop doing the correct things like social distancing, like correct hygiene and complacency will sweep across this nation because people wil think that we've conquered this pathogen and the consequences of such thinking, WILL be dire.

The vaccines will help alleviate the symptoms of the disease but they won't, as far as we know at present, make you immune from contracting the disease or stop you from transmitting the disease if you have it.

Why are they still wearing a mask if they are getting the vaccine?

I know right. Don't these silly people realise that they're immune to Corona at least several minutes before receiving the vaccine?
Why can't stupid scientists and infection disease specialists just listen to you? Don't they realise you've watched several videos on YouTube?

No I don’t believe it should be mandatory, I believe once everyone has had the opportunity to get vaccinated however, businesses have the right to refuse service to people who refused to get vaccinated. There will be some people who cannot get vaccinated for a genuine reason. They should be excepted from this.
