No, I don't plan to be vaccinated, I went down with bird flu in 1997. Haven't had any corona virus illnesses since.

Prove to me that a vaccine works and that I'm being given the genuine article and I'll be beating the door down.

Nice point:

 

- Perhaps proof of vaccination will be required to make international flight booking, and

 

- Hopefully if one proves they have had an accepted/authorized vaccine the need to quarantine on arrival in Thailand (anywhere) will end. 

 

 

I doubt it as the Vaccine is only expected to be 50-60% effective so just having the vaccine won't mean you can't get infected.

Better have an effective quick test.

People do realize a Vaccine not going to be 100% effective don't they?

Most likely 50-60% effective so even if you take it's not like you'll be 100% immune it will just help reduce the R number.

Doesn’t matter how effective it is, as long as it lets us travel again.

There's no way of knowing if this is true yet. Nobody knows yet, what level of immune response is required to prevent infection with CoVid-19. Once phase 3 trials of various candidate vaccines have gathered enough data, we might have an answer to both what level of immunity is required and how effective each candidate vaccine is.

You mention the vaccine will only be 50-60% effective.

Where does that come from?

Are you a doctor?

 

There's several hundred vaccines in tests, my guess (hope) is that many will be much effective at the 99% level.

Nah, I'll go along for the vaccine and slip the Thai nurse 500bht to not inject me.

No need to let the world know you didn't take it.

 

Billy Boi thought about that already.

Google: ID2020

 

It will be difficult if not impossible to fake that.

 

He also invested in a kind of color agent which will be put under the skin to show if someone is vaccinated or not.

 

We will be screwed because most of the people are sheeple and they take us with them.

 

 

But kinda surprised not anyone in this forum is stupid. Congrats to you who are able to use their mind

I have never had a flu injection but a vaccine for covid might be different. There are studies now being undertaken on survivors (very small samples) that show there could be brain damage/impairment from the virus. If this is proven on large samples, I wonder if the anti vaxers will change their mind (but then again they may already be impaired) 🙃

Already 64, retired, what do I need a brain for?

It's been widely reported that the usual expectation for vaccine effectivity is much less than 100 percent. Such as the annual flu vaccine. But it can often at least mean milder symptoms if infected.
