EXPECT A COVID-19 BOOSTER SHOT EVERY YEAR IN SOUTH AFRICA
The National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD) has said that it is highly likely that Covid-19 vaccinations will need to be administered yearly in the form of a booster shot.
This is the result of the evolution of more Covid-19 strains that diminish antibody reactions to vaccines, combined with the fact that the antibodies deteriorate over time.
According to Scheepers, most vaccines on the market were developed from the original strain, and new variants have evolved to be more efficient in terms of infection and evading the immune system.
Like the flu shot, these vaccines will need to be modified to match variants in circulation at the time, meaning at some point, we will need these modified vaccines administered in the form of booster shots.

I think we could avoid a metric fuck ton of the bullshit currently experienced by just calling the shots what they are.

These aren't vaccines.
The are immune boosters.

I will personally take every shot I'm legally allowed to just for the fuck of it.

I've had my 2 Pfizer jabs, as soon as I'm allowed to I'll have another or even a J&J. I'll let whoever prick me with whatever as long as it entails I can get on with my life and travel again when and where I want to.

I think I'll read the summary. He does tend to waffle. I don't think he should relax the restrictions just yet. Still too many eedjits refusing vaccination.
We may just have to wait for them to become extinct.

Momentum says its data is starting to show that Covid-19 vaccines play a huge role in preventing deaths - only 2% of death claims in July and August were for fully vaccinated people. Almost R1 billion in death claims were paid out in those two months.

"We picked up that less than two out of every 100 of the lives lost were fully vaccinated. In other words, 98% of death claims were for unvaccinated or only partially vaccinated people," said the head of Momentum Life Insurance Stephen van Niekerk.
