This is a dangerous way of thinking - the vaccine is not the holy grail that will end the pandemic, the virus will continue to go around, you CAN still get infected the same way as without a vaccine, and you CAN still spread it to others during that gap before your body neutralises the virus, the vaccine does not stop the virus, it just protects you from the complications of the virus, such as severe symptoms, hospital, and death. No vaccine is 100% fool proof despite the claims, but the good news is, that the efficacy is far higher than the Flu vaccine which is 40-60%.
It takes an initial 2 weeks for the vaccine to do its thing, for your body to start producing antibodies, and it takes up to 4 weeks or sometimes longer depending on each case, to get the full effect of the 1st dose. It's not push a vaccine in you and you are protected this is not science fiction
You are still just as vulnerable as you were before the vaccine, until your body has developed the antibodies, and that takes time, which is why they keep telling stubborn people out there to keep wearing their masks, wash their nasty hands, keep distance and follow the damn rules. In theory, even with 1 dose, you have good protection after 4 weeks, BUT that protection fades away quickly, which is why you need that booster shot (2nd dose) to prime your body to produce more antibodies - and from that 2nd dose you should in theory have the full protection (BUT.......... for how long, nobody knows).
Now with those F............. variants out there, the game has changed, whilst those vaccines still offer good enough protection, their efficacy is reduced, and the day could come that so many variants could come out that may render vaccine useless, this WILL happen if vaccines continue to be at their current pace........... There is now the UK variant, South African, Brazil, Nigeria and Arizona (new one being studied), some of them are feared to be resistant to vaccines, bringing down their efficacy down big time, this shit is not over, and there is documented cases where people have had COVID more than 2 times ! This is scary, it's likely in a few months you will need another vaccine for the variants, and eventually seasonal booster shots, this virus is out of control and it's all thanks to the IDIOTS, the MORONS, the WASTES OF DNA CELLS who purposely defy rules to cater to their own needs and not give a shit about others..........and nobody seems to give a shit that China is taking advantage of this world pandemic, the whole world does not seem to give a rat's arse - WELL, we will be spending the next 5-10 years cycling between opening / closing / lockdowns, etc people will never "GET IT"........
Only 100 million Americans have had the vaccine, that is NOT f........... good enough, the whole vaccine rollout was a big sham, whilst the big pharmas are the ones who made BILLIONS of $, and 1/3 of America being vaccinated ain't good enough - the variants are quickly winning the race. The only way to stop this madness is for vaccination to outpace the mutations, this will stop the virus! but no, you can't reach community immunity with only 10-30% of your population getting the bloody vaccine. So much for Biden's pathetic 100 first days in power, with his messed priorities, he did say he had a plan to crush the virus, hmmm interesting, pretty soon the variants will cause many states to shut down completely, right now Biden is more concerned over his green shit economy, solar panels and electric cars, oh yeah and printing trillions of $ to help people - band aid solution instead of putting his entire focus on getting America free of this China GENOCIDE of COVID19 !!!!
In Canada things are not any better, as usual we are always last, we are 43rd place, because we have a corrupt, PUPPET and no good government.......At least the FDA was smart to hold back on approving this AstraShit vaccine which BTW has a very low efficacy compared to the other vaccines, but no, not in Canada, our muppet of PM ordered millions upon millions of doses I guess Canada likes to settle for a cheap vaccine with a lower efficacy compared to Pfizer and Moderna, at least the US did something right, they are giving the top vaccines, which have the highest efficacy against the variants compared to the Astra and J&J crap !!! and now Astra has changed their name to VaxZevria or something like that, same vaccine new name as if people will be fooled and forget about the fiasco.......it's the same turd rolled in glitter
You know why this pandemic will continue through 2022-2023, because people think that the vaccine is the miracle cure......... once people get the damn vaccine they will rmeove their masks, they will gather in crowds and pretend nothing happened - Most people don't know that they can still spread this bloody virus to others ! Some people can be truly a lot of selfish c**ts ! If everybody worse the f..... mask and followed guidelines, the virus would have nowhere to spread and we'd be long out of this pandemic, this whole pandemic has done my nut in, as with millions of people around the world who have followed the rules and paying the price for a lot of clueless gits who still think this virus is not real.
