    It doesn't.  The Flu vaccine just means if you get the flu - it will just be a mild case of the flu.

    The vaccine trains your immune system to produce antibodies to prevent the virus from replicating in you.  There is always a 'waiting period' for any vaccine to become effective.

    Scientists have known about the flu virus for over a century, and they're still trying to figure out all the details about it.  Those same scientists just found out about SARS-CoV-2 a little over a year ago.  They still have lots of figuring out to do.

    There is a time frame that you can still pass it on to others if you are infected.  Therefore not all vaccines are the same

    The flu vaccine kills the flu bugs in your body so you do not have it anymore.  This is a new disease so it does not  die that easily.  We have not figured out a cure for it.

    You can't.  Don't believe fearmongers who want to keep power over you.

    We don't know why vaccinated people can still possibly spread the virus.  Novel means new.

    It is possible that you will be in the pre-symptomatic phase of covid at the time you get the shot.  So you will go ahead and get sick, because the vaccine has not had any time to work.  And if you get sick, you can pass the virus on to others.  In fact, the authorities say you can even pass the virus on when you are asymptomatic, and I won't deny that.

    The vaccine doesn't make you immune immediately anyway, so you could catch covid a week after receiving the shot, and pass the virus on to others.  

    Now, once the vaccine has had time to immunize you fully, you should not be able to catch covid.  But if you do, it will be mild, but you would be able to pass it on.

    Thing is, once a large percentage of the population is vaccinated, there will be very few people to catch it from.  

    And frankly, I don't think they know everything about it yet.

    Flu vaccine stimulates your body to protect you from fully catching it in the first place, so you can't become infectious and pass it on. With covid, your government is lying to you to keep us under lockdown.
