The calculations obviously use simplifications but it should get in the ballpark.

Yeah, church and the gym doom me.

There have been cases of reinfection, but that rate is much lower than the infections you see when covid breaks out in virgin territory as it were.

However I should have been more clear, this winter we find out how much the immunity (via whatever means,) we have stands up to the pressure of winter+delta. Does it wane? Does it hold?

The prediction for no surge has the immunity winning.

I personally would not count those chickens just yet.

Great article on how VAERS works and how people use it to spread nonsense:

Seeing as how pretty much every expert is predicting that Covid is here to stay, I'm curious how the ceo is defining the end of the Pandemic.

i'd like to know too (i got their shot), and also his knowledge of science. i would bet that pfizer's ceo has no idea how chemistry works.

COVID is here to stay but it won't always be a pandemic. It'll be like influenza.

Yes, I know. What I'm curious about is what the CEO means specifically with the pandemic ending and the endemic starting. Like what determines that? When case numbers reach a certain low? When R reaches a certain low?

Practically speaking, is it the point when Covid protocols are only down to yearly vaccine + the typical messaging reminders of "and remember to wash your hands, cover your mouth when sneezing" etc. but we're done with masks and social distancing?

He has a doctorate in biotechnology.

Moderna's CEO has a masters in engineering, so your guess is closer on him.

i made a post around a year ago itt asking if these companies were collaborating. totally naive of me. to make the best possible product. it tilts me that (so far) one of the vaccines is much better. but that was pretty obvious with my (errant) post.

What if the collaboration came up with the inferior product?

I mean it's possible an even better vaccine could have been manufactured, but I just can't imagine being tilted at what we've gotten in that regard. We're super lucky to have vaccines this good, and at the speed we got them.

I will speculate that getting one shot from one and one from the other will eventually be proven to be more effective than two shots of either one.
