(Im not sure your question is serious....)

First, you are characterization the israel results... the third dose does NOT have a 49% efficacy. That data is for the 2 dose regime and is why they are going to three....

  • Pfizer and BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine is just 39% effective in Israel where the delta variant is the dominant strain, according to a new report from the country’s Health Ministry.
  • The two-dose vaccine still works very well in preventing people from getting seriously sick, demonstrating 88% effectiveness against hospitalization and 91% effectiveness against severe illness, according to the Israeli data.
I **do** think masks, triple vaccine, passports WILL SLOW THE SPREAD and allow our healthcare systems to safely 'land' this pandemic.

This (retarded) idea that if something isnt 100% it isnt worth intellectually stunted thinking. "masks aren't 100% why bother?"..."the vaccines aren't 100% why bother?"....

And why do you mean by "vaccine mutation immunity"? It doesnt mean anything as you wrote it.

Yes, continued spread of covid increases the odd of a mutation evading vaccine control. THIS IS HOW WE GOT DELTA. (duh) But it is the best we have, and it is FAR BETTER to deal with delta in a vaccinated population than in a population that has no vaccines. (double duh)

Get vaccinates
Wear masks
Try not to get exposed
Hope they roll out a specific 'coronavirus' booster in 22/23.

And back to DeSantis...the guy is an uneducated, ignorant piece of shite. He has this idea that we all just need to get covid and be done with it. The sad and horrifying fact is that covid, un-treated, will circle the planet for centuries. Just like the flu.

Instead he is flaming culture wars.
