Vaccine confusion

Over the past few months we have all been made aware that different vaccines have different efficacy and some are clearly much, much better than others.

There are two basic types, one that needs a really good fridge (MRNA) and one that you could keep in a more normal one .

Our governments are encouraging us to get vaccinated with a vaccine that is the easy to store one but has been proven to be the least effective and show a poor adaptability to emerging strains .

Not to mention the risk of blood clots, sorry “Rare blood clots”.

It’s clear that any vaccine is better than none when we have high numbers of outbreaks….or is it?

One vaccine type (MRNA) has a 90 per cent score and the other one (AstraZeneca) is 65 per cent. 

Most conspiracy theories are laughable but despite our media not wanting to feed any antivax theories there is a very large elephant in the room.

I’m no mathematician, epidemiologist, doctor, nor statistician and I don’t work for any of the vaccine makers. 

But does it not make good sense to vaccinate those whom are more vulnerable and more likely to catch, suffer, and distribute this virus with the best vaccine available?

And would this not also ensure that herd immunity would be achieved much faster and safer using these more effective, MRNA types, which are adaptive, rather than the non-adaptive types we are encouraged to use despite the fact they are less effective on the frequently emerging strains?

Would it not be better to accept some risk with the better type, knowing that this will be the one that will be upgraded and tweaked as these new strains emerge?

We will all be needing booster shots for years and MRNA is the type that can be adapted. 

Or should we just do as we are told, knowing that suffering side effects will be a waste of our immune system resources as the virus evolves, having to risk the Pfizer (MRNA) later anyway?

Does using this substandard, outdated vaccine make any sense?

In the meantime, I’m happy to wait to have what our dear leader, 52-year-old Scotty had on national TV, months ago as one of the 40 million Pfizer doses that will be here any day now, as will Moderna which is also MRNA.

I will leave the outrageous ageism aspect for others to pursue.
