Hi Foxy,

The answer is, seek medical advice.

My son 37 is a public transport bus driver in Sydney, he's in perfect health, went last week to his GP, concerned with not being vaccinated. His doctor said point blank, at this stage wait for Pfizer. He tried to book online but was denied. Public transport has been cut back to Sunday timetable so he'll be working 1 day in 3. All thanks to the stuff ups by Berejiklian and Morrison.

Dear Ttbn,

«The covid vaccine will in time become the same as the influenza vaccine; it will probably be combined with the flu shot, and varied each year as the flu shot is now»

Are you a prophet?

What you described is one of the possible scenarios.

The best scenario is that COVID will be eliminated, possibly as a result of new vaccines that are currently being developed that will cover all existing and future mutations all at once. They could also be taken orally, which means that everyone around the world will have easy access to them.

Another good scenario is a medicine, that is now being tested and should be ready in about a year, so anyone who even suspects of being infected will take a pill and not get sick, nor infect others.

The next scenario is that the virus evolves in a way that will make it harmless, so everyone will have it but no steps need be taken.

Then there are scenarios worse than the one you introduced:

The virus could also mutate into a more virulent form, something like Ebola even, perhaps, which would kill 80-90% of those infected, then too few would remain to design, produce and distribute any vaccines.

It may not be that bad if the earth is relieved of much of its human burden, but from a human point of view, if you want to avoid that scenario, to reduce the number of new mutations, the overall number of cases must be minimised, and for that we must continue just what we already do: testing, tracing, isolation, distancing, vaccination and medication.

Those who wait to see how others fare will, as a matter of course, be the last to be vaccinated.

I am perfectly happy to be the last to be vaccinated. In fact I'm perfectly happy to never be vaccinated.

What I am not happy about is not being allowed to use Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin as a prophylactic rather than these so called vaccines.

The evidence is far to wide that particularly Ivermectin is very effective when combined with zinc & vitamin D in stopping the virus in it's tracks when used as soon as, or before symptoms appear for it to be banned. With long term evidence that both are pretty safe, I took Hydroxychloroquine for years in the islands, it smells fishy that the establishment are so against them here.

Could it be as simple as anti Trump, or is there another reason that the things that quelled Indias & now is reducing Indonesias problem is banned here.

When I spoke to my doctor about the vaccine he said he would not try to influence me, but I definitely should have the normal flew shot I've been having for years, saying the flew could kill me. To me, what he didn't say spoke very loudly.
