I don’t think so
But the legend was that / Like “el gato” the cat / Nine lives has “la Vacuna COVID.” [pertains to 1959 Western series through Disney]
The jab, now, is more about protecting yourself than your neighbors: Your likelihood of hospitalization / death is MUCH less if you’re fully vaccinated. And oh yeah: Even so, there are some persuasive signs that long haul Covid happens anyway, even with the “less deadly” Omicron variant. And this variant doesn’t seem to avoid children as much as the others. I haven’t seen anything persuasive about WHY that is.
Unvaccinated Seniors 49 Times More Likely to Require Hospitalization than Boosted Counterparts. And unvaccinated people between 50 and 64 years old were 44 times more likely to need hospitalization compared with their boosted counterparts.
CDC advised today that boosters reduce the likelihood of required hospitalization due to omicron to about 1 in 10 (90% reduction) of total infections.
Study Finds Cannabis Compounds Prevent Infection By Covid-19 Virus
Compounds in cannabis can prevent infection from the virus that causes Covid-19 by blocking its entry into cells, according to a study published this week by researchers affiliated with Oregon State University. A report on the research, “Cannabinoids Block Cellular Entry of SARS-CoV-2 and the Emerging Variants,” was published online on Monday by the Journal of Natural Products.
The researchers found that two cannabinoid acids commonly found in hemp varietals of cannabis, cannabigerolic acid, or CBGA, and cannabidiolic acid, also known as CBDA, can bind to the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19. By binding to the spike protein, the compounds can prevent the virus from entering cells and causing infection, potentially offering new avenues to prevent and treat the disease.
Perhaps, but vaccines are still helping keep most people out of the hospital and from being intubated. It’s also still protecting from the other variants.
With research, the Omicron variant may allow the vaccine manufacturers to come up with a booster that will address Omicron and subsequent variants from being vaccine resistant.
All in all, the more people that are vaccinated will do more to battle variants, than doing nothing at all.
But I did not shoot no deputy…
So you’re saying you did shoot the deputy with that double negative?
What I’ve read in the news has been fairly consistent since the discovery of the Omicron variant was first announced: The vaccines are less effective in preventing infection with Omicron, but their effectiveness is still greater than zero.
So it would be valid for this cartoon to show the “sheriff” as wounded, but not dead.
