Yeah, the vaccines seem to reducing severity of illness if not the incidenceLook at the death rates in comparison to infections. There are much less deaths.
Our current daily cases are above two of our three previous peaks, but our deaths are at all time low.
Vaccine seems like a likely cause for that.
I am also hearing this. Family members that had no problems with the first three jabs are getting flu like symptoms after the second booster. Have they changed the formula I wonder?A friend had no problems with his first two vaccinations nor with his booster. He went for his second booster recently and was very unwell, with flu like symptoms for 24 hours. Is this common?
It's probably that they got one vaccine originally and are now getting Moderna which seems to trigger a stronger immune reaction - at the cost of tough immediate short term side effects. I think I read something to the effect Moderna has more mRNA bang for buck in it than Pfizer also.I am also hearing this.

I was only discussing this with the other half this morning. We each have been jabbed 3 times but with still got Covid albeit a low dose.I've had 2 x Pfizer and a Moderna chaser . . I've had the Covid twice . . I'm done with vaccines.
Why would you boost your immunity to a strain that is no longer in circulation i.e. Wuhan ? I don’t understand how a booster can offer protection when many mutations have occurred.
Would you take a two year old flu jab? Personally I would not. Neither would it be offered to me as they are updated annually to match the top 3 or 4 variants in circulation. Otherwise they don’t give protection. Occasionally they don’t get the cocktail correct. A few years back I got Aussie flu as it wasn’t included in the jab.
If you have recently had Omicron, why would you be so concerned about an Omicron specific booster?I had covid around four months ago. I had not been vaccinated at all. It was certainly an unpleasant few days but no where near as bad as Aussie flu which left me with pneumonia. I am over 50 and have an underlying condition. I recovered. I’m not convinced that a 2 year old booster has anything to add to my now measurable naturally acquired immunity to omicron. Naturally acquired immunity has not been discussed much by the media, but surely it must play an important role. I will take a flu jab though when it’s offered.
Vaccines can cause myocarditis. Long covid can put you at risk of developing cardiac issues. Pre covid there were heart issues emerging with athletes.Spent a week on a ward with 4 men in 30s and 40s with heart issues. Not what I was there for. Also hearing this from somebody who works in health profession. What has caused all these heart conditions in young men ?
None of these lads had long convid. One was blaming the booster !
How many would there have been pre-covid? Is it higher or lower now? A single random experience is not indicative of anything.Spent a week on a ward with 4 men in 30s and 40s with heart issues. ... What has caused all these heart conditions in young men ?
I've developed problems eating gluten. I blame electric cars. Before there were electric cars I'd no problem. Because I just think* correlation does actually equal causation.How many would there have been pre-covid? Is it higher or lower now? A single random experience is not indicative of anything.
The increasing prevalence of heart disease in younger adults has been a concern for some time.
It's easy to blame a booster for early heart issues while continuing with a poor diet and little or no exercise.
