it is hard to say the vaccines are safe bc of the short duration, so i feel like it is better to not take it rn if you have a safe enviornment and routine, to not take the vaccines is a risk, but to take it is another...
No, it's whether the virus dies out or continues to survive as that variant. Viruses don't want to kill you, they just want to reproduce. Also, when a virus mutates the survival of the variant depends if it can survive the body's immune system and carry on or it dies out and the variant before it dominates. (Survival of the fittest)
You are correct. Had we all been vaccinated fast enough it would have eradicated the virus long enough so it would not have had time to mutate. This is how we basically got rid of Polio and Measles and why the flu vaccines have a hard time getting ahead of the mutations.
It would have had way less chance for survival and/or mutations given the effects of the vaccine in terms of protection from getting/transmitting the virus. Again, basic science here. Nothing out of the ordinary.
A vaccine that activates an immune response and gets your body's Memory T or B cells activated to remember what it did to stop the weaker version of the virus which is the vaccine. (A vaccine is basically a dead shell of a virus or a much weaker version with many similarities to the original virus that can trigger a immune response)
mRNA delivery/medicines are not new. These vaccines have been in development for decades. Only the mRNA sequence was adapted to suit the specific COVID virus. mRNA allows for fast development and upscaling. mRNA is just messenger (the "m") to tell cells to make a specific protein (in this case a portion of the COVID spike protein) which is then seen as the immune system and eradicated training the cells for the next time the immune system "sees" the spike protein sequence (after being exposed to the virus and the actual spike protein.) So the vaccine doesn't prevent you from getting infected but it helps train your immune system to be prepared for it and deal with it better. In this way no portion of a virus, or dead virus is needed in the vaccine.
Exactly! It doesn't prevent you from getting it. But it makes the virus struggle more to survive.. Boy what could that do? Oh yeah maybe cause the virus to adapt lol. Why did the Spanish Flu disappear but corona is still going strong? Hmmmmmmm.
Masks don't work the virus is too small, the N95 mask couldn't even stop it(only a virus 1 micron could be stoped and covid is 0.315 microns) Also, who cares about this virus all it is, is just like a cold or flu and a dramatic amount of people don't die so why is this such a over-exaggerated virus?
