    If you can find a claim from any of the vaccine manufacturers that these ones have been shown to prevent transmission I'd like to see it.

    Will covid-19 vaccines save lives? Current trials aren’t designed to tell us

    https://www.bmj.com/content/371/bmj...currently,interrupt transmission of the virus.

    Yet the current phase III trials are not actually set up to prove either (table 1). None of the trials currently under way are designed to detect a reduction in any serious outcome such as hospital admissions, use of intensive care, or deaths. Nor are the vaccines being studied to determine whether they can interrupt transmission of the virus.

    That's a likely scenario, and something that authorities should be actively discouraging. But they'll do the opposite.

    Given that its the minority that it will impact I'd say you're right. Unless they get a little crazy, of course. They'll never survive otherwise.

    I must admit that I did buy a pack of Redskins and one of Chicos before the name change.....figured I could sell them to some racists.

    Some CHEER cheese seems appropriate at this point in time.

    My point is vaccines don’t kill viruses thus can’t stop transmission. What they do is stop you feeling shit and cut symptoms which help stop transmission. Plus if someone is vaccinated then it doesn’t matter if it’s transmitted... until it reaches someone who isn’t vaccinated

    Apparently you dont need any symptoms with this one to give it to a gazillion people

    It may or may not cut transmission rates. That is unknown and none of the producers are claiming that they do. There's probably a reason for that.

    While there's still two years to run before they finish the trial stage. Makes sense.

    You will catch coronavirus. Being vaccinated means you won’t (or less likely to) get sick.
    The same as the flu or measles or mumps vaccines. They all still get transmitted

    Very few get sick from it anyway. So how does it help them

    I said there is no evidence these vaccines (or 'vaccines'?) prevent transmission. Preventing transmission would be the only sensible argument for mandatory vaccinations.

    People who are OK with it being mandatory should look into Pandemrix.
