Re: Covid Vaccine: Will you get it?

View Post
I am very sorry about those that you know who died from Covid.

WHO says that there is no evidence that the vaccinated person will not be contagious and will not spread the virus. Why do you think the mass vaccination will stop the virus from running its course and mutating?
The articles I read positioned this differently - in vaccine development you normally have a longer time which is used to prove also that aside from not getting the specific virus, you will also not spread it. With the speed at which CoVid vaccine had to be developed, they had no time to do this specific test which requires exposure etc. Hence they cannot yet confirm it and want to avoid making people feel safer than they should before knowing for sure.

Answer from the FDA:

A: Most vaccines that protect from viral illnesses also reduce transmission of the virus that causes the disease by those who are vaccinated. While it is hoped this will be the case, the scientific community does not yet know if the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine will reduce such transmission.
