Israel doubles down on booster shots as daily Covid cases set new record. Say it ain't so !!!

Wait a second here.......   the vaccines were not only safe but would also protect you from Covid... forever !!!  

I guess now....  how could we have been so mistaken? Aren't the scientists always right?  I'm so confused............. :)

Israeli lawmakers are keen to avoid another lockdown after overseeing one of the world’s fastest vaccination drives. New daily coronavirus infections, however, have just climbed to record levels.

While many nations were grappling with the rapid spread of the highly transmissible delta variant, Covid-19 transmission in Israel declined sharply as the country vaccinated more than half of its population in around two months.

The country had one of the fastest vaccination rollout programs in the world, and by early June many of its coronavirus restrictions were lifted as new cases fell dramatically. But just days later, masks were reimposed as new infection numbers began to creep upward.

Preliminary data published by the Israeli government in July showed the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was just 16% effective against symptomatic infection for people who had received two doses in January. For people who had been fully vaccinated by April, the vaccine was 79% effective against symptomatic infection, suggesting that immunity gained through immunization depletes over time.

DEPLETES OVER TIME???????????

Well.. It's booster shots for life folks.

Let me know in the comment section if you are getting as tired of this as I am.

    Nah the vaccines were always expected to need boosters. The flu shot is yearly and usually requires a booster. Being seasonal you could get away with just one or at worst two shots. COVID being all year round would need boosters every 6 months. They thought it would be more effective but that was before Delta. Fully vaccinated still getting sick from Delta but much fewer deaths due to the vaccine. 3rd dose now slowing the surge. I’m working on some technology that may be agnostic to the so called variants. Environmental control. Won’t help if you’re infected. Hopefully will stop it before you are

    I thought that 80% of patients now testing positive in Israel are already vaccinated, hmmm something just does not add up. Oh yeah, I forgot I failed maths at school so that's the reason stupid me.
