I’ve survived Victorian Government quarantine with negative COVID tests. I was fully vaccinated in April and repatriated from a relatively low risk country.

My quarantine hotel was loaded up with those from high risk countries and positive cases were likely. Ventilation was poor in my room though hallway issues appeared to be addressed.

Happy I was vaccinated as being from a safety sensitive role there seemed gaping holes in the gold standard. Staff were very professional and courteous with many former long haul or airline staff. Perfectly suited for the role.

What’s your realistic chance of a fully vaccinated person passing COVID to their fully vaccinated family member who has a compromised immune system?

Versus the scenario where neither are vaccinated? The main personal reason I vaccinated was for this scenario where I thought from my research the chance COVID fatality reduced significantly .

Then you've got whackjobs like blow.n.gasket and FDG135 above who scare the shit out of me that my family and friends might be onboard one of his or her aircraft one day..
How old are your family and friends, Timmy? If they're younger than 60 they have more to fear from the flu.

I don't know STW, it does sound a LOT like you & Gnadenburg are actually doing exactly this in your reply?

the sharing of one's point of view on a social or political issue, often on social media, in order to garner praise or acknowledgment of one’s righteousness from others who share that point of view, or to passively rebuke those who do not

Everyone else is just sharing factual information and actual experience?

they may be but what about all the older and weaker folk they're going to infect? Anti vaxers are all about ME and never talk about US

Just look at China. New blood tests after arrival in HKG, new neighborhood lock downs in Guangzhou. We are far from being over it. Getting vaccinations can't be wrong. However in therory almost everybody would need one to prevent the virus mutating.

I posted earlier that my Dad (86) had suffered no side-effects from AZ.

I had mine on Monday and posted the same, however, in the last day or so I have noticed muscular pain and tenderness (perhaps even a little swelling also) around the injection site but nothing else.

Two different views. Like Covid who, what do you believe.

And even a fully vaccinated person can still play host to an evolving virus, in situations where the vaccine prevents illness but still allows a virus to replicate. That appears to happen even with the most effective COVID-19 vaccines. So, viral evolution doesn't just occur in the time between shots.

But researchers say that as more and more people get vaccinated it will rob the virus of its ability to mutate.

Where is this evidence? I'm not aware of any incidents of "the vaccinations" (I am assuming you are talking about the Covid-19 vaccine) killing many elderly. All medications have a level of risk. It is up to the end user to determine whether the benefits outweigh the risk.

In the UK there are many little villages that were wiped out after the various plagues that swept through Europe. Ironically, the plagues helped end serfdom etc as the landowners now had to pay to get folks to work the land.
I digress.
Jab 2 of AZ done yesterday. Happily no side effects (unlike Jab 1). Just a mildly sore arm at the jab site. Unfortunately for travel in the UK, our boofhead of a prime minister and his lackeys are just determined to ruin summer travel plans.

Another small addition to the stats. Wife and I had AZ No. 1 yesterday morning - nothing of any note to relate.

Update from here. Just had *BioNTech 2nd shot last evening. Painless. Almost no after effects. Slight soreness in upper arm, but even less than the first shot.

*Pfizer is a misnomer I was assured.

Had AZ no 1 on Mon 31st May, 12 days ago.
Nil effect / reaction at all....apart from the slight 'drippy' nose cold for last two days.
But ... I reckon I may have got that from 'Grandie'.

Go For It!.

My parents - ages 100 and 95 - both had both AZ shots back in April at their Rest Home.
The major side effect is that Mum is now able to Go Shopping for the first time in over a year
