This is exactly the problem. The nonchalant ‘job done’….

He doesn’t need it or want it.

I have had several antibody tests done over the past 12 months. My blood is teeming with antibodies from natural infection. (>2500U/ml)



The same antibodies that possibly last a lifetime. Whereas the ones produced by the jabs are waning and leading to you needing endless ‘boosters’ and causing other variants to emerge.

I’ve not suffered with Covid in 2 years nor tested positive for it.

So for me it’s a no-brainer really.

Enjoy your boosters.

Have to go with Fudge on this one, I've been donating blood plasma for more than 18 months after getting what I guess was OG covid in Feb 2020 (wasn't able to get tested when I had it as it was pre even BoJo lockdown 1) and I still have antibodies, the peer reviewed data on this isn't extensive enough to know what factors affect natural immunity lasting however long it does. I'm not making a point about the efficacy of vaccines, more that it's a scientific fact you can remain antibodied up for a minute and not NEED a shot to protect you / your loved ones.

great point, we should pause the pandemic while they figure out the exact numbers.

Vaccine immunity + natural immunity is stronger than natural immunity alone, but maybe I should listen to anecdotal evidence from ismvil and fudge instead of John Hopkins University…

For the record I’ve had 3 shots. But I love the responses. There’s no room for nuance with some.

Probably why you've still got antibodies to be honest.

I had them for a year after infection before I had my first Pfizer, it's anecdotal to me of course but my only point was it's possible to have antibodies without a shot. And natural immunity in isolation is a thing.

Rublev said he tested positive pre-flight to Australia but Border Force still let him in to compete at the AO.

Not about health after all eh.

Lovely. If I do, I’ll count myself very unlucky. What’s the survival rate again, 99.995%? Laughing out loud Laughing out loud Laughing out loud
