I'm assuming I will continue to catch it every so often, as one does with 'flu' or colds. If subsequent episodes are like my second time, it won't be a big deal. My father had it twice in his 90s, but having been vaccinated he was not very ill on either occasion.I've had Covid twice. Not really keen on going for the hat trick tbh. Having it a second time felt a bit unjust.
Then you are like my son. Everyone around him has had it but never him, for some reason.Fortuitously, I have (yet) never contracted covid.
Fully vaccinated back in 2021-22.
I'm the only "novid" in my family and social circle (and its not a case of asymptomatic, as I was testing repeatedly throughout the pandemic).

I completely missed this post of yours when I read through the thread before I made my post. I only caught this on a brief re-skim, sorry.Vaccinations may not be perfect, but they do two things. First, they do lower your odds of catching the disease in the first place. They are never 100% effective in that regard. Second and more important, they do lessen the severity of the disease if you do catch it. In the US Trump supporters were less likely to get the vaccine. The counties with high percentages of Trump supporters had a higher covid death rate than Biden counties. In our last serious surge of cases the unvaccinated were about seven more times likely to die than the vaccinated.
In other words the vaccines aren't perfect but they still work. Seatbelts are not perfect in an auto crash. But they do greatly increase the odds of surviving one.
