Israel study shows (once again), the virus itself is a better "vaccine" than the vaccine
The study once again shows that we'd be so much better off if we just let people get infected and encourage the use of proven early treatment protocols.
This paper from Israel, Protection and waning of natural and hybrid COVID-19 immunity, was posted on December 5, 2021, but went unnoticed by the mainstream media for some reason.
The bottom line: natural infection and recovery is strongly preferred to vaccination.
Recovered immunity is 6.5x better than vaccine immunity in terms of resistance to getting re-infected.
If you get vaccinated and then get infected, you are at a disadvantage. You would have been better off if you just got infected.
Once you are recovered, if you later vaccinate, you’ll get a slight improvement in resistance.
Omicron will provide immunity with negligible death risk.
In short, Omicron is a “better vaccine”: it is far preferable to any of the current vaccines both in efficacy and safety (and even more so with early treatments).
Here’s the relevant table. “4-6” means 4 to 6 months later.
Which looks like this:
Bottom line: In my opinion (and your opinion may vary), people are going to be much better off if they avoid vaccination and (this may surprise a lot of people) try to get infected with Omicron instead and then use a proven early treatment protocol. That’s what I would do. This variant has an extremely low death rate, so it’s the perfect variant to choose to get immune. COVID is endemic. You are going to get infected sooner or later. Better to get a “safe” variant than to risk a more deadly variant.
