  1. They sure may, but so far the statistics say the chances are much higher after COVID-19 and the vaccines has been tested for over a year with no serious effects surfacing after a few months. How Long time shall we use the vaccine before we say it's safe? 1,2 or 10 years?
  2. Quite a lot of them will develop symptoms that last for quite some time. Statistically 44,000 kids pr million will suffer with symptoms that last more than 28 days. Thankfully most is over within 2-3 months, but would you really risk your child suffering for several months, when a vaccine most likely would have prevented it? Here is a long read if you care to read it. https://www.thelancet.com/pdfs/journals/lanchi/PIIS2352-4642(21)00198-X.pdf
  3. Maybe Thailand should contact Denmark and see if DK want to sell their 7 million surplus doses of J&J if Thailand still need vaccines. Denmark made a contract for 7 mill doses a long time ago which apperantly now are arriving according to the newspapers here, but we never started using J&J in the official program, so they are of no use for DK. I hope the danish politicians act responsible and either give or sell those doses to other countries instead of letting them rot in the fridge.
  4. And why do you think the different governments has started including the kids in the program? Do you think it might have something to do with the amount of adults that refuse to take their shots, so now the kids has to take their spots?
  5. Here we're back to normal with the help of vaccines and if we can keep covid19 in control with just the vaccines i will be happy. This winter will be interesting in Denmark. Will we still continue to see a low number of positives each day and mainly amongst the unvaccinated people, or will it explode in our face forcing us to take a few steps back?
  6. Never heard of them until 14 days ago, but it lookslike a bankruptcy is not something we should wish for.
  7. Sadly if we get infected and end up in hospitals, we are likely to take a bed from someone else if the health care system is overburdened, plus we put the health care personell in higher risk of getting the virus. Here in Denmark we didn't even use up all beds during the pandemic and used only approx 25% of our ventilators, but it was bad enough to postpone a whole lot of planned surgeries for other people, where many still await their surgeries. That's a good enough reason to take the vaccine for me , but off course i also took my shots due to all the other obvious rea

Yes i will get my 3rd and 4th or 5th shot if needed, if that is what it takes to get this world back on it's feet. We all have a responsible to get the wheels moving again, and so far it seems that the vaccines are the best option. They minimize the risk of getting covid 19, they minimize the chance of being submitted to hospitals and they minimize the chance of dying. Why say no to the vac
  9. As long as i can get my Peter Vella i'm happy. It's the one that i so far found most suitable to drink at 30 celcius in Thailand.
  10. The unvaccinated people not only risk their own life, but also the life of others and those that has to treat them. This doc says what a lot of people feels. https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2021-08-17/vaccinated-covid-doctor-shot
  11. Less seems to do the trick. Here in Denmark we have approx 75% vaccinated in total across all ages, but are open with no restrictions at all and no problems so far. 96% of those age 50 has gotten their shots, so that could be an explanation? Some experts here are baffled why we're not seeing major spikes after fully reopening with only 75% Maybe it's a mix of 75% vaccinated and that a lot of people already had COVID-19? Personally i think Thailand will open up before they reach 80% Very few countries achieved the 80% mark
  12. Their choice and they delayed the full openining because numbers of positives started to rise the last month. I think if Thailand had the same statistics as Norway had since june, Thailand would be open by now.
  13. As far as i can see on worldofdata Thailand is now close to 20% fully vaccinated. Then i tried to look at those countries that actually has reached 70 % + https://ourworldindata.org/explorers/coronavirus-data-explorer?zoomToSelection=true&facet=none&pickerSort=asc&pickerMetric=location&Metric=People+fully+vaccinated&Interval=7-day+rolling+average&Relative+to+Population=true&Align+outbreaks=false&country=ISR~GIB~MLT~PRT~ARE~ISL~QAT~ESP~IMN~DNK~URY~CHL~BEL~THA~USA It took most of them approx 4-5 months to get from 20% fully vacc
  14. They need to speed up their vaccinations if they intend to fully reopen this year. It's not impossible for them to reach 70% + fully vaccinated this year, but it will require some effort. Anyone know how the anti vax feelings are in to Thailand. Lots of sceptics or do they just want their shots so the wheels can start turning again?
  15. https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7037e1.htm?s_cid=mm7037e1_w It's still a good idea to get the shot. I agree it drastic to make vaccines mandatory in Thailand for some people, when the entire population has not yet been offered the vaccine. Offer it to everyone and see if enough people get their shots to get on with life. After that it might make some sense to make it mandatory in certain groups, IF covid 19 is still causes a major problem, because a lot of people refused to get their shots. Here in Denmark it's still up to everyone if they
