Re: Vaccine

No problems with a vaccine as long as the MPs lead by example and not the NHS staff....

Re: Vaccine

Well the obvious one for me would be anyone who works for the emergency services.

When I have had to deal with the police, for reasons I won't go into here (but that is a day I'd rather forget trust me!) they have been fine. It was nothing dodgy on my part, honest guv 😉

Re: Vaccine

I by no means have a Biology degree, but I would have thought that isn't the case?

AFAIK (and all that) a vaccine works by injecting your body with dead cells so (a) They're dead so it doesn't harm you, and (b) Your body thinks it is real, so your immune system tells it to get lost?

So if I had it and passed it onto you, your body can't fight it off like someone else's may be able to.

That's just it - if you have had the vaccine then you wouldn't be in a position to pass the infection on as the it would never have taken hold enough to become contagious.

Gleneagles point (tongue in cheek acknowledged) is that not everyone needs to be vaccinated in order to reach sufficient herd immunity (i.e. enough people that are immune such that it is hard for the virus to propagate). However, it is not a perfect science and varies due to many factors, and if too many take the decision to be one of the non-vaccinated then the whole approach obviously breaks down regardless.

Re: Vaccine

Fair enough @MJN 

I assumed any vaccine wouldn't do that, so I could still pass it on to someone else. It might not affect my body that much if I had it, but someone else's it could.

I assumed it wouldn't stop the spread, just how it affects people.

Re: Vaccine

To be fair, some vaccines are indeed 'therapeutic', but this (and most others being sought) are intended to be 'prophylactic' (preventative).
