a combination of ignorance (we don't have data past about half a year on how long protection will last over time), and being confused about anti-body levels (which always decline steadily over time) vs overall immune response (which long term is based on immune cells 'remembering' something as a threat) that's much harder to quantify in the lab.

The US Govt's in the process of recommending a booster shot after 8 months (starting next month) based on a combination of indications that protection might be starting to fall off by then or that a longer interval between first and 2nd doses gives stronger protection (the Israel vs UK data for break-through infections with delta fits both theories). For the broader population (vs those in high risk groups) that might be premature; and from a global public health standpoint almost certainly is: Until protection tends much closer to zero, getting initial doses to people who haven't had anything yet will reduce the global case rate and thus the likely rate of new variants evolving more than minimizing risks in the rich world even more. But what else is new... Sigh | :sigh:
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
