It has nothing to do with "trust" in vaccines, which you imply is blind trust, and further imply that it is ignorant trust. It mostly has to do with the fact that we choose to mitigate risk as much...

The grain has to be stored in the gamma buckets all the time, or else it will go rancid. It has to be kept airtight with moisture and oxygen packets. I'm not talking about flour, but actual grain. I...

That's a really good link, and it explains a lot about what the numbers of the waning immunity are (it's not bad at all, still pretty effective) and why we use a less effective vaccine than one that...

It may wane, but it doesn't go away completely. So, let's say for sake of argument, for the first 2 years the coverage is 98%. Then years 2-5 it's 96%, then years 5-10 it's 90%. The immunity is...
