Why are the media claiming that the Covid vaccine gives people immunity to the virus when it only masks the symptoms?

    Its like most things we know what vaccines are and have been successful but we have never found a cure for the common cold and its the same virus they keep telling us , so of course there will be doubts and this is too early to be shouting our odds again as we so often do we have 120,000 dead through lies and false promises ,

    They are correct, it prompts an immune response making it much less likely that a person will certainly contract the condition, or if they do it will not be so serious. It may not stop a vaccinated individual spreading the infection to a person who has not been immunized, although with less hosts the virus has less chance of transmission.

    They are actually correct, it provokes an invulnerable response making it less probably that an individual are going to contract the health condition, or even if they do it will definitely certainly not be so serious. It might not stop an immunized individual disseminating the infection to an individual who has actually certainly not been actually immunized, although along with far fewer ranges the virus possesses less chance of transmission.

    Hopefully you're a virologist and not a total w@nker.

    It doesn't mask the symptoms, it pre-programmes the body to recognise the  Covid-19 virus so it knows how to fight the disease in the same way as the flu vaccine does which is also a crown virus. 

    Dopey Gerald....the common cold has 20,000 variants which is why we haven't found a cure. Leave virology to intelligent people and practice shelf erection with one that doesn't fall down.⬇️

    The purpose of a vaccine is to prompt an immune response in the recipient. When a person is subsequently exposed to the pathogen the vaccine was designed for, their immune system is better able to deal with it.

    People who are vaccinated have immune systems primed to deal with Covid-19, which reduces the severity of their symptoms. 80% of the Israeli population have now been vaccinated, and they are seeing dramatic fall offs in the numbers of people hospitalised and the number of deaths due to Covid-19.

    What we are now starting to see is that by having the vaccine, and hence priming your immune system, your body is able to reduce the viral load significantly. This means that, although a vaccinated but infected person still carries the virus, their ability to transmit that virus to others is reduced. In other words, the vaccines appear to also reduce transmission of the virus.

    There is no 'masking' ... the vaccines do what they were designed for, which is to reduce your chances of ending up in hospital or dying from Covid-19. And it now seems they also reduce the ability of people to spread it.
