A bit confusing.  The article says that people for first jab can walk in, but then in the criteria, it says that you must have had a previous jab....which is it?

"foreigners must bring their passports as well as their social security cards or pink cards for the walk-in service."

 

so they haven't learnt anything from the last delays for older farangs. Looks like you need a pink card or SS cards in addition to a passport to get the much needed booster.

The article is quite clear

"Vaccinations will be administered to all groups aged 18 and over for their first, second, or booster injection until the supply runs out."

 

The criteria is in respect of previous vaccinations.

The only criteria for the first jab is breathing.

So are they giving Astrazeneca as a booster dose to those that have had 2 doses of Astra zeneca?

And why not? Having had 2 AZ jabs why not stick to what you know.

I wouldn't put too much store in the effectiveness of vaccine combinations as it is relatively short term.

 The real long term protection is based on T cells rather than antibodies and that immunity builds up with exposure to the virus, so the more vaccinations of any type, or infections, you get the better off you will be in the long term.

It was reported AZ had almost no defence against Omicron variant, it begs the question - what's the point??

I’ve had two AZ jabs and got Omicron, it was less than a cold.  I self isolated 5 days and now there’s no urgency for a booster because I have some natural immunity.

I totally agree, similar thing happened to me.

 

Booster is suppose to onnly boost immunnity for 8-10 weeks, what's the point? I will only get that if it becomes a requirement to travel which i think is unlikely.

Booster is worthwhile if it will reduce the severity

Why not post the report that you refer to and explain if they are referring to antibodies or T cells.

Do your own research if you don't believe me.

I have done the research but you want to dispute it on the back of something you think you saw.

This was my post

"The real long term protection is based on T cells rather than antibodies and that immunity builds up with exposure to the virus, so the more vaccinations of any type, or infections, you get the better off you will be in the long term."

You can just google "T cells vs antibodies" for verification.

 

You raised a dispute with this response

"It was reported AZ had almost no defence against Omicron variant, it begs the question - what's the point??"

You claim your point was based on what you saw but cannot say if that referred to antibodies or T cells.

Basically you disputed the post without the full facts.
