  1. As described, memory-type immune responses ensure the rapid rise of antibody titres after initial exposure to SARS-CoV-2, rendering the benefit of vaccine-induced antibody response exceedingly doubtful. Regardless, we should not assume that high antibody titres against SARS-CoV-2 will always improve the clinical outcome. With several virus families—in particular with Dengue virus, but also with coronaviruses—antibodies can aggravate rather than mitigate disease. This occurs because certain cells of the immune system take up antibody-tagged microbes and destroy them. If a virus particle to whic
  2. Definitely not an anti vaxer and definitely won't be happy.
  3. No, but I just sold some today. People still need it, or animals do at least. I think the question was why are we discussing this in a racing forum, or that was my take. I know you made it clear in your headpost that it was due to the similarities here with the JCA and RIU behaviour.
  4. No longer true.

  5. Is definitely all a bit smelly. How do they get name supression? It was reportedly their bach? And did I just hear that they somehow got back to Auckland and no-one knows how they got there?
  6. True but they'd have an open and shut case to hang him for stopping horses.
  7. I really don't prefer the Herald to anything much thanks.
  8. No intermediate or long term RCT data wrt adults either for that matter.
  9. It's international human/chidren's rights law as above. And I'm not aware that has been overridden in the UK or USA either. Where did you see that?
  10. I don't need to google. I'm fully aware of the consent law in NZ for health procedures. Children of any age can consent to any health procedure where they are deemed competent to do so and where not, their parents/guardians can consent on their behalf. Age has nothing to do with it.
  11. Bullshit. The JVCI advised that vaccination was warranted for 12 -15 year olds where they had the following conditions. haematological malignancy sickle cell disease type 1 diabetes congenital heart disease other health conditions as described below under ‘COVID-19 clinical risk groups for children aged 12 to 15 years’ (these health conditions reflect the basket of diagnoses used in the RCPCH and NHSE analyses mentioned above) I agree that most chidren don't have those conditions. More but most adults don't have them either.
  12. Yes. That will no doubt be the case. Unfortunately, the vaccinated with no or less symptoms will also be out there transmitting not knowing it, so given that, it's hard to say whether control is possible in vaccinated populations. Or, whether vaccination will prove to be a useful public health measure.
  13. Yes. I personally think Novavax might be a safer and more conventional option but no Covid vaccine has anywhere near the normal testing standards for mass use. Another couple of years of research are probably needed. In the meantime we have to use the strategies known to work safely. People need to get used to that idea.
  14. Gosh. Have you gone from the Lancet to the NZ Herald as a reliable source?
  15. Yeahh...still hanging on for Medsafe to approve it. It's a real vaccine.
  16. Yes be interesting to see how that goes. https://www.stuff.co.nz/world/europe/300404785/covid19-denmark-lifts-all-domestic-restrictions-citing-high-vaccination-rate?cid=app-android
  17. What you say is true but that was 15 years or so ago. I also had roles in Ireland and Kentucky picking up shit and mucking out boxes. I'm not sure that any of that affects my abiliy to contribute to this debate.
  18. Don;t forget that is with less than 30% of the population now vaccinated. Much less in relation to those figures.
