Herd immunity can be either naturally acquired or by vaccine.From how I understand you can achieve herd immunity by vaccination.
Unless I am mistaken I do not think even Pro herd immunity thinkers do not think lets send lambs to the slaughter.
However if immunity wanes then it casts doubt over vaccination for a longer term solution and it may just be we have to find a way to slowly carry on normal life now.
I hope I am wrong , I have always thought the hope for a silver bullet to come and put and end to it was a bit optimistic.
Going back to the piece on the radio the expert explained a vaccine will offer a higher level of immunity than any natural immunity from contracting the virus so will last longer. They think the vaccine will need to be like the present flu jab where it given annually.So if a vaccine to achieve herd immunity is not a viable method what is?
Sounds more like we need to learn to live with it then
This is exactly what I posted back in teh early summer my ex said this , shes no virologist but shes a band 7 sister..Going back to the piece on the radio the expert explained a vaccine will offer a higher level of immunity than any natural immunity from contracting the virus so will last longer. They think the vaccine will need to be like the present flu jab where it given annually.
Glad you bring this up.Aren't there other parts of our body that can fight the virus as well as the immune system? Also our immune system as a memory so can remember how to react to the virus if caught again.
And that is what is needed its not going away and until a vaccine is available its damage limitation unfortunately some people think the rules are not aimed at them and they can ignore them.Lets hope this lock down will be used in a better way - as it just buys time.
I don't get why keeping people off school/college for a few weeks is such a big deal there are many ways they can keep learning they don't all need to be in a classroom with a teacher.No lockdown is going to work with these places still open. It’s like closing all the windows to keep the heat in but leaving your back door wide open!
