This does raise a moral/ethical question.
Do you let the virus do 'its thing', no more restrictions, since the option is there to get vaccinated if you want / try hard enough. Basically let the anti-vaxers and other hesitant people fend for themselves. (with the risk of creating new strains in the process) And go for herd immunity the hard way.
What about the children though, below 12 aren't getting vaccinated yet and while low occurrence, there are problems with covid in children as well. Plus hospitals will stay busy with covid, pushing other things further and further back.
It seems the USA is done with restrictions, UK as well, the rest can fend for themselves. Canada might be next.
Anyway, instead of getting rid of it / numbers so low it won't flare up again with vaccinations, now it's a wait and see game again whether it's safe to send my youngest back to school. He has to go back regardless, not doing well socially. But how safe it will be, I don't know. There definitely no longer is any push to suppress the pandemic entirely, it's a collective fail in that regards.
I'm getting my second dose tomorrow, and my wife should have reached close to full immunity by now. Next, the kids, our oldest just turned 12, so he is eligible. It still feels like a gamble. Too many unknowns still and too much conflicting information. Anyway it's his decision to make and there is zero info made available for kids. Pretty poor going imo.
The vax doesn't make every last person 100% immune. How do we know this possible, much deadlier mutation, won't come from someone who is already vaxed with their defenses supposedly prepared? Most of the time you don't bother upping your game much unless it becomes necessity, due to efficiency.
Once again, the professionals, told us Canadians it was totally fine to mix n match vaccines and now they're saying not to because it could be a considerable problem. They're also saying not to make your own mind up with this new info, but to look to the experts, who already said it was fine. How many times are they going to flip flop on one thing after another and expect people to believe them strongly enough to get jabbed asap?
You can't blame the people when the trusted sources are constantly showing themselves to be anything but. If the professionals don't look to have a handle on the situation, who then do you trust? Lockdown can't stay in limbo forever, and people can't be forced to take it because that'll just make things far worse.
The way forward is hope for the best because that's always what's going on. The level of control in decades prior, supposedly meant everything was going to be fine, right up until, 9/11, the 2008 economic collapse, and covid-19. Yet somehow, someway, they still happened, and things worked themselves out relatively reasonably, though lessons were learned. It's not exactly comforting, but it is what it is.
Best of luck to you and your family in whatever decisions made.
