Do airlines require other vaccines? Yearly flu shots?

Typically no. You’d be surprised at the number of straight up anti-vax (and not just COVID) batshit crazy, supposedly educated conspiracy theorists that have outed themselves lately. There are a handful of outfits that fly into underdeveloped areas that have always required certain vaccinations. I guess the anti-vaxers have avoided applying at those places.

Do I need to post the CDC's Kentucky study again?
If you're unvaccinated, and you had Covid once already, you're still more than twice as likely to get Covid again as someone who got Covid and then got vaccinated.


Same team Farva, same team…

I know of two people here locally who have had Covid and have had their antibodies tested a bunch of times (because they are donating plasma) and their antibody levels are high enough even months after recovering that they can still use their plasma to treat patients.

Im definitely NOT saying that if you think you’ve had Covid go ahead and call yourself good.

Im also NOT talking about getting Covid again because we all know anyone can get Covid…vaxxed, unvaxxed, previously infected…it’s the level of severity and mortality that we are trying to tamp down right?

What I’m saying is that there should be a way to determine the antibody levels of a previously infected person compared to a vaccinated person.

Antibody Levels will likely vary from person to person but I do agree with my aforementioned airline pilots argument that, if his antibody levels exceed those of vaccinated people, why make him take the shot? What is the end goal? If it’s to make sure you have antibodies against the virus he has met that goal.

Will the virus derived antibodies wear off? Sure. Will the vaccine wear off? Sure. Is there a rate in which that occurs? I don’t know.

As usual, what should have been a straight forward memo leaves most readers with several questions.

Namely and most obviously is regarding boosters.  My understanding is that 3rd shots are still under EUA. ….not the actual shot itself, which is the same as original, but the regimen of getting a 3rd after 8 months.  

Many folks got their shots in Jan/Feb/Mar.  Is the military going to consider us “unvaccinated” come Sep/Oct/Nov?

(I for one will refuse a booster for as long as it’s my choice.  I played along and got the initial two, but I’m not going to keep playing this game and being a pin cushion when I personally have no fear of Rona and still have to wear a mask regardless.  Fool me once….)

I don't think it's quite that simple though. Having covid definitely gives you some immunity in the short term just like the vaccine. But this pandemic has been going for a year and a half and there are people who caught covid early whose T cell immunity is definitely tapering off. 
 

Having covid is once is not a lifetime golden ticket to never having to worry about this again. And neither is the vaccine. That isn't how any of this works. Immunity tapers off over time and new variants emerge which is why you can catch seasonal flu every year if you aren't careful. 
 

The other problem is that people grossly over self-report having covid. I can't tell you how many people I've talked to who say something like "yeah I had the sniffles last March and my bunghole felt weird, I probably had it already". Relying on self reported covid is not a good way for a company to run their employee health program. 
 

So at a basic level, yes you are right. Getting covid and getting the vaccine accomplish the same thing as far as immunity. But for both, we don't know exactly how long that immunity lasts or how durable it is for future variants and relying on someone to self report their immunity is about as unreliable as it gets. Companies are always going to air on the side of caution and when you have a safe, fully approved vaccine, I don't think requiring that is some dystopian overreach. Do airlines require other vaccines? Yearly flu shots?

That's how it went with me..never dawned on me that I might have gotten -19  until weeks later when I started hearing about it....and never did get the antibody test...so who knows...If I DID have the real thing I might have spread it globally for weeks.  In any case a few months in.. the wife and I got the bugshot...I was just reading the local paper about 60ish years ago when literally everyone raced down to get the Polio vaccine..You had to be deep into devil worship or REALLY slow to pass up that one.  Now the local farm supply places are selling horse de-wormer..it's the latest on the interweb...Would you fly with a dude/dudette who rocks with Ivermectin?!  We had a squadron reactionary or three..but NOTHING like this...

I think when unvaxxed people start re-catching it, that will massively change the way people think about covid. Right now there's a chicken pox-esque "had it once so I'm good" mentality which is completely incorrect. 
 

Similarly I think we are about to see an uptick in breakthrough cases among the vaccinated as we near the 6 month point from the first shots and that immunity tapers off over time. 

We shall see..If it happens Mother N. will be up with a major human house cleaning...The poor medical dudes and dudettes are getting kicked in the gonnies/gonettes as it is now..

Here's a new research paper with data fresh out of Tel Aviv, it's a massive study comparing natural to vaccine-induced immunity:

https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.08.24.21262415v1.full.pdf

Quote

 

This is the largest real-world observational study comparing natural immunity, gained through previous SARS-CoV-2 infection, to vaccine-induced immunity, afforded by the BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine. Our large cohort, enabled by Israel’s rapid rollout of the mass-vaccination campaign, allowed us to investigate the risk for additional infection – either a breakthrough infection in vaccinated individuals or reinfection in previously infected ones – over a longer period than thus far described.

Our analysis demonstrates that SARS-CoV-2-naïve vaccinees had a 13.06-fold increased risk for breakthrough infection with the Delta variant compared to those previously infected, when the first event (infection or vaccination) occurred during January and February of 2021. The increased risk was significant for a symptomatic disease as well.

Broadening the research question to examine the extent of the phenomenon, we allowed the infection to occur at any time between March 2020 to February 2021 (when different variants were dominant in Israel), compared to vaccination only in January and February 2021. Although the results could suggest waning natural immunity against the Delta variant, those vaccinated are still at a 5.96-fold increased risk for breakthrough infection and at a 7.13-fold increased risk for symptomatic disease compared to those previously infected. SARS-CoV-2-naïve vaccinees were also at a greater risk for COVID-19-related-hospitalization compared to those who were previously infected.

Individuals who were previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 seem to gain additional protection from a subsequent single-dose vaccine regimen. Though this finding corresponds to previous reports24,25, we could not demonstrate significance in our cohort.

The advantageous protection afforded by natural immunity that this analysis demonstrates could be explained by the more extensive immune response to the SARS-CoV-2 proteins than that generated by the anti-spike protein immune activation conferred by the vaccine26,27. However, as a correlate of protection is yet to be proven1,28, including the role of B-Cell29 and T-cell immunity30,31, this remains a hypothesis.

Our study has several limitations. First, as the Delta variant was the dominant strain in Israel during the outcome period, the decreased long-term protection of the vaccine compared to that afforded by previous infection cannot be ascertained against other strains. Second, our analysis addressed protection afforded solely by the BioNTech/Pfizer mRNA BNT162b2 vaccine, and therefore does not address other vaccines or long-term protection following a third dose, of which the deployment is underway in Israel. Additionally, as this is an observational real-world study, where PCR screening was not performed by protocol, we might be underestimating asymptomatic infections, as these individuals often do not get tested.

Lastly, although we controlled for age, sex, and region of residence, our results might be affected by differences between the groups in terms of health behaviors (such as social distancing and mask wearing), a possible confounder that was not assessed. As individuals with chronic illness were primarily vaccinated between December and February, confounding by indication needs to be considered; however, adjusting for obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer and immunosuppression had only a small impact on the estimate of effect as compared to the unadjusted OR. Therefore, residual confounding by unmeasured factors is unlikely.

This analysis demonstrated that natural immunity affords longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization due to the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the BNT162b2 two-dose vaccine-induced immunity. Notably, individuals who were previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 and given a single dose of the BNT162b2 vaccine gained additional protection against the Delta variant. The long-term protection provided by a third dose, recently administered in Israel, is still unknown.

This explains the huge spike and then huge drop in cases in India this past May. India, at the time, had barely anyone vaccinated. They suffered huge amounts of infections and death, but their case numbers are almost down to nothing. Herd inmunity?

So this seems to suggest that getting vaccinated even after an infection is better than just getting infected and hoping for the best...am I reading that correctly?

 That’s one way to look at it.   If you are peddling the jab.  
 

the jab wears off.  It’s meant to keep you on the Pfizer tit.   Here immunity would be best had by everyone gaining natural immunity.   But now, instead, we have vaccinated people running around with minimal symptoms but still able to spread the virus.

This analysis demonstrated that natural immunity affords longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization due to the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the BNT162b2 two-dose vaccine-induced immunity.

The results suggested that immunity from getting the virus and still being unvaccinated is a lot better than never having been infected and getting two pfizer shots.

SARS-CoV-2-naïve vaccinees had a 13.06-fold increased risk for breakthrough infection with the Delta variant compared to those previously infected, when the first event (infection or vaccination) occurred during January and February of 2021The increased risk was significant for a symptomatic disease as well. 

If your first exposure to virus immunity was 6-9 months ago (real virus or vaccine), you're 13x more likely to get infected by the Delta variant if you had the two shots and never had the virus. And more likely to develop covid in that group.

SARS-CoV-2-naïve vaccinees were also at a greater risk for COVID-19-related-hospitalization compared to those who were previously infected.

If you had the virus any time in the past 16-19 months and you're unvaccinated, your immunity is not as strong anymore but you'd still be 6x less likely to get infected again and 7x less likely to develop covid than if you had the two shots (in the past 6-9 months) and never had the virus. And less likely to be hospitalized.

Quote

Individuals who were previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 seem to gain additional protection from a subsequent single-dose vaccine regimen. Though this finding corresponds to previous reports24,25, we could not demonstrate significance in our cohort. 

And without statistical significance, they think that having had the virus followed by a single shot gives slightly better immunity than the natural one from prior infection. Again, much better than never having been infected and getting the two shots.

No data on third shot immunity yet.

 

So, for those who had the virus and didn't get the vaccine, you might be in a great position right now. Biologically speaking, at least...

So the best course of action would be to have Covid patients cough on everyone they meet until everyone has gotten it?

Take a listen to this C-SPAN coverage of this Pulmonologist talking about Ivermectin's effectiveness, it's a 10 minute video, very passionate physician: https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4930160/user-clip-dr-pierre-kory-senate-hearing-ivermectin-100-cure-covid-19

Japan is also giving Ivermectin the go ahead for treating covid-19. Sure it's comical on a surface level to label people buying "horse paste" as being stupid, but those same name callers will wig out if you show them the ingredients on the tube, Ivermectin. Yes there's additives and such in there that people should know aren't intended for humans, but adjusted for weight dosage, may or may not cause issues. The point is, these people would not be buying horse paste ivermectin if they could get Ivermectin over the counter or prescribed by a physician willing to do so, but physician's are too scared to be labeled "anti-science" for thinking outside the approved paradigm. Ivermectin has also been around for decades with safe research results on humans. It's because the FDA has not "approved" it for human use to treat covid-19. Interesting how it's so cheap though compared to the other stuff Big Pharma. comes up with. India also pushed Ivermectin months ago and saw great results

Coming full circle to what should've been done to begin with to get through this virus. Except in this timeline, Big Pharma. got some fat pockets, and we lost a lot of freedoms many take for granted. Maybe we'll get those freedoms back? Right guys?

@Bobsan I like your post; it's almost as if any layman could tell that natural immunity is better than lab made. What is it, I've read 24 pieces of the virus is what your body learns of when infected and beats it, compared to the one (spike protein) it learns with the injection? It was something like that. Hilarious that so many Followed The Science straight into the trash can. I don't mean malice towards them though; hopefully they'll start to question why they were lied to, and who lied to them.

Ivermectin, huh? We’ve already been through this with hydroxychloriquine. In case you’re wondering, yes, there were passionate “physicians” touting hydroxychloriquine in congressional hearings last year as well. People like you are convinced the government is covering up a treatment in a giant conspiracy. It’s almost funny to even think that the government is capable of that, but I digress.

What happened? People took hydroxychloriquine anyways. Brazil prescribed it. Some random doctors went on talk radio to “expose the truth” about this miracle drug. In our case, it made it through the misinformation chain all the way through Fox News up to our previous President. Still with no evidence.

A year later, there is now definitive proof that hydroxychloriquine provides no benefit, just as doctors said. Some studies show that it actually is associated with worse outcomes. Turns out being a conspiracy theorist with little actual scientific proof doesn’t work. News coverage and people pushing that treatment silently died out on OAN and Fox, weird, huh?

Ivermectin is not a secret conspiracy miracle drug that is being ignored. There is a very low chance that it may be helpful - which hasn’t been proven whatsoever. You want to know what’s been proven via millions of people in large studies to combat the effects of COVID? Vaccines. Yes, natural immunity is a thing as well, I’m not debating that.

Realize that doctors and researchers are not all government shills. They are on the range of political spectrums, and, by and large, they want to actually help people. Put a little more trust in your fellow American.

Also, your insistence on calling an mRNA vaccine “gene therapy” seriously reduces your credibility. It’s honestly almost impossible to listen past there. It’s a talk radio tactic, just like calling Obama “BARRACK HUSSEIN OBAMA” every time they said his name from 2008 until now, but it doesn’t make your or their argument any more true.

My anecdotal story, stepson, 35yo, got the covid  along with pneumonia. Wife asked the doc about ivermectin. Doc says "Oh no that's for animals we don't give it to humans". Fast forward and he winds up in the hospital in Gulf Breeze FL with a different doc. Wife asked new doc about ivermectin. She says "Oh yeah I've prescribed it for him". Stepson gets seven pills. He said within a couple of hours he started feeling better. Still spent a couple more days in the hospital. Funny how two doctors can be 180 out on medication.

I’m sorry, but the ivermectin thing has me scratching my head. I’m all for any treatment that can reduce the severity of COVID-19 symptoms & help our society return to normal. Is ivermectin such a treatment? Well, maybe, but just like any other drug, it has to be tested and proven to be safe and effective in that role before it can be approved. As of right now, the FDA does not recommend ivermectin be used to treat Covid-19: 

https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/why-you-should-not-use-ivermectin-treat-or-prevent-covid-19

Somebody correct me if I’m wrong here: Many people who do not want to get a vaccine that has been fully approved by the FDA because they feel the testing was rushed are now willing to put a drug in their bodies that has not been tested or approved for the purpose of fighting this disease? Not only that, but some who’s doctors are not willing to prescribe this dubious drug are willing to get it from the feed store and figure out their own dosage? There seems to be a pretty big disconnect in the logic that would lead one to decline an approved and effective treatment in favor of an unapproved and questionably effective one. Let’s let professionals, you know, TEST these drugs before we put them in our body. I kinda thought that sort of thing was a big deal to the Tucker crowd.

It’s hilarious how the antivax folks have been convinced they need to be against experimental vaccines politically (although that experiment just ended)… and instead put their faith in highly experimental unvetted glove save treatments.

It’s pure dissension that is bred by social media and a combination of malicious and incompetent actors. If you’re in this camp, ask yourself if you think 2 years ago you would have been anti science? Would 2 year ago you have turned down an American made vaccine developed to combat a global pandemic that killed 650k Americans? The answer is probably no. So why is it happening?

Bad actors are playing with you and the preying on the weaknesses of a “free society” when it comes to disinformation. Dogfish78 is an example of someone who, at best, is a victim to those disinformation efforts. At worst, he’s actively and intentionally trying to propagate them.

At first, posts of people being hurt by disinformation made me scratch my head, now they just make me sad. Below is just a small sample of the last couple of weeks. A reminder that, statistically, had they been vaccinated, all of these Americans would have lived.
