Letters : Covid Passes not necessary , Study shows most vaccinated are protected from serious illness

  

A recent study published in the Lancet Medical Journal by academics at Kings College London and Harvard University examined for the first time , the impact of Covid-19 symptoms on vaccinated people vs unvaccinated . The study which was supported by the UK's department of Health , used data from a large population of individuals reporting their symptoms on a mobile app . 

The Study found that vaccinated people had reduced symptoms , less need for hospital assessment and less risk of prolonged illness .  

 Almost all individual symptoms of COVID-19 disease were less common in the vaccinated vs.unvaccinated populations with SARS-CoV-2 infection, and more people were completely asymptomatic in the vaccinated group.

Those with post-vaccination infection had fewer symptoms of COVID-19, and more were entirely asymptomatic. Fewer vaccinated individuals experienced five or more symptoms, required hospitalisation, and, in the older adult group, fewer had prolonged illness duration (symptoms lasting longer than 28 days)  
  
However , t
he study found that Young Vaccinated Adults were more likely to develop Sneezing as a symptom which would be a concern in terms of viral transmission . 

... The exception was sternutation (sneezing), reported more commonly in younger adults who contracted infection post-vaccination . Sneezing generates aerosols potentially of importance for viral transmission in the post-vaccine era  

From an examination of this study , it is safe to say that most vaccinated people are fairly safe and protected from any harmful effects of the virus . 

Therefore , If the reason for the Covid Pass is to protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated , its not necessary because the evidence shows the vaccine is doing that Job already .

On the other hand , if the Covid pass is to protect the unvaccinated from the vaccinated , thats not necessary either because the unvaccinated accept the risk for themselves , they know the risks they face and accept those risks . Its their health and their decision as to what health choices they make . 
 
And finally , if the reason for the Covid pass is to force unvaccinated people to make a health choice they dont want by denying them access to important services , a social life and exclusion from society until compliance, then thats a breach of a person's civil liberties and is a human rights and discrimination issue .

in Ireland 2021- ITS MANDATORY FOR BABIES TO HAVE VAXXED PARENTS.
in Ireland- BABIES ARE ABORTED AT BIRTH- no pain says psycho Harris.
in Ireland- ABORTED FETUSES ARE USED TO VAX THE PARENTS.
THIS IS ONE VERY SICK PUPPY THAT unGOVERNS a VERY VERY SICK AGENDA.
what did you expect, from 1/2 a LIEO, 1/2 a MICK, and a COLORLESS GREEN...1 TAOISEACH ?

i heard a td on radio saying its a "no brainer" that covid passes will be expanded, why ? does he not like using his brain to think about the reasoning ????

If more TDs thought logically about the reasoning behind them , we wouldn't have them at all.

thats the problem in Ireland , nobody wants to think anymore , they just let others do the thinking for them

the strange thing is , some people seem to like the control , they kinda like the state telling them how to behave , I guess thats how nazi germany was built , its easier to go along with something then to stand up to it.

natural immunity is the best way to go , we just need to let people build up a natural immunity
