Not too sure if a vaccine will help. I think this is Mother Earth getting back at us for ruining the planet. Just when we think we are on top of it, there's another kick waiting for us.

Vaccines are not “magic bullets”. People still get infected with the flu despite vaccines being available for many years.

Nah, nah, a vaccine will also lessen the severity of the virus if you happen to catch it (while vaccinated).

Just because a bullet proof vest doesn't cover your entire body, doesn't mean it won't help protect you in a gun fight.

I agree that we have had an effective vaccine for TB, but we are talking about a disease that can mutate into different strains of the of this virus. Making it more difficult to manufacture a vaccine that will cover all the various strains. We need to do more testing, before we can say we have it beat.

Agree completely that we need to be constantly testing. That is how flu has been treated for years. Flu vaccine is given to the vulnable each year and it is different each year. Unfortunately I think this is what will happen with this virus. Also know this virus is much worse than flu - and possibly worse than TB because it mutates.

The true test of its effectiveness within entire populations will only be demonstrated over time and take into consideration the extent and fullness of the vaccination campaigns around the world and the issue of the virus not mutating or mutating and the the vaccines remaining effective.

With new variants and the extremity of the contagiousness in relation to the new variants I cannot and will not trust the vaccines which are currently in use. Regardless of the effectiveness of the vaccines I don’t believe they can be of much use against the new variants . Also due to the amount of doses which have been rolled out I can only see con vid 19 been made even stronger and become resilient to any kind o...

Flu has been handled in this way for many years - it is a control measure not a cure.
