On another site I asked:
"What was the point of creating THREE different Covid-19 vaccines if
ONE is better than the other two? My doc told me the Pfizer one is the
best and safest one to use. Moderna is second and the Johnson and
Johnson one is the worst.
I was wondering WHY I saw a lot of people walking around in public
without face masks or some kind of face covering. I was told that in
upstate NY, at least where I live, people can walk around in public
without a mask or some kind of face covering IF they have been
vaccinated. I have seen a few public notices about this somewhere. IS
Then someone told me:
"Well according to https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-
news/coronavirus-numbers-new-cases-2020-n1157271 there's still
hundreds of thousands of infections per day all across the world, and
even though there's been a slight downturn recently it's still pretty
much worse than ever.
Don't forget that in places like India and Canada there's been massive
spikes in cases as of late that are far above the worldwide average.
So yes, the pandemic is still a pretty big issue.
Also nobody 'created' three vaccines just for shits and giggles, they
were all being developed at pretty much the same time and as far as I
know there's yet to be an absolute consensus on which one is actually
Also it depends on what vaccines your country can. If your country is
doing particularly bad economically then you'll probably invest in
cheaper vaccines that may have riskier side effects, like the Astro
I don't live in New York but I would assume more people are walking
around without masks because at this point we're kinda just getting
used to the pandemic and having to social distance and stuff. Plus in
some countries - like the UK where I'm currently stationed - cases
genuinely are going down quite a lot thanks to vaccines and other
initiatives, so there's good reason for people to be less on their guard
The pandemic is still a big issue, but is there still a crisis
Someone else told me about a Covid-19 vaccination called BioNTech. I have never even heard of this one. When did BioNTech come out? Is it good?
What's the Astro vaccine? I never heard of that one either.
