Greetings thepea,

Or did he get vaccinated and catch the Covid regardless?
He is unvaccinated, as are all the other people I mentioned except for one of the sisters, who had a single-dose.

You have been told countless times why, even in the very post you're replying to above, and you ignore what is said to you every single time.

If you persist with disruptive meta-discussion you may find yourself suspended. Take it to Dharma Wheel Engaged if you can't help yourself.

There have been trials to assess which combinations are most effective at boosting immunity, though I haven't been offered a choice anyway.

I had my booster yesterday and feel fine, apart from the usual achy arm. Lots of people getting jabbed.

Man gets vaccinated up to 10 times in a single day:

We are all wondering what his immunity is at, by now.

In this world, there are people acting and yearning for the Mara's world; some for the Brahma's world; some for the Unborn.
.
Those who desire good are few, and those who desire evil are many.

Little question from a scientific perspective.

Is it possible that immunized people getting infected anyway are helping to drive mutations just as much and/or even more than the unimmunized?
