Again. Another piece of misinformation.

If @_sabanaqvi doesn't want to take the vaccine for reasons best known to her, she should keep the decision to herself. Why use this reasoning to justify herself?

Now for the article, here's a thread on my analysis of the same.
The article used for reference. Let's go!
theprint.in/opinion/majori…
Here, I am only casting aspersions on the point that the immunity conferred with the infection from COVID-19 is long-lasting.

The above article used an article from @ScienceAlert which claims that immunity from COVID-19 is long-lasting.
sciencealert.com/evidence-grows…
This article comes from a non-peer reviewed research paper which delves into the immunological memory of COVID-19
biorxiv.org/content/10.110…
They themselves found out that antibody titres declined after 5 months, maximum till 8 months.

You may get lucky if you were infected very recently, and you were asymptomatic this whole while. But what if it happened before 8 months or beyond?
As a reference, they also used another non-peer reviewed research paper which looked into the level of T-cells (which keep memory of infection). This article too found that T-cells were in good numbers till 6 months. biorxiv.org/content/10.110…
Immunity through natural infection from coronaviruses isn't very trustworthy. A simple example is infection from coronaviruses which cause common cold. We develop very short-lived immunity against them, hence we get the infection almost every year.
Research was also done on the same in 2009 on the duration of immunity from human-infecting coronaviruses. Results weren't very promising. cambridge.org/core/journals/…
This is the reason why the main aim for developing vaccines against COVID-19 was to get long-lasting prolonged immunity against the same.

The virus is now around us. There's no escaping from it. We can only defend ourselves against it with the help of vaccines.
Even this logic is also flawed. Understood that @_sabanaqvi inferred only from @ThePrintIndia article, hence want to tell that this is wrong.
You may ask "Why is it wrong?"
1)Minor injection site reactions do not come under "serious harm" to people. Sometimes even commonly used vaccines cause that.
2)Candidates for vaccination are screened for all risk factors. Those having the risk factors are excluded from the shot.
3)Vaccines' purpose is not only to save patients from the target disease, but also their long-term complications. We know about post-COVID complications and people dying due to it.
We know about people who gained immunity through natural infection of chickenpox, suffer from shingles in old age.

We know about people who gained immunity through natural infection of measles, suffer from SSPE (a type of encephalitis) later in life.

Why risk yourself?
Tagging for review of my thread. 😝

Well, @netshrink sir, I'd like to re-emphasize how much disinformation Anoo Bhuyan in her two tweets, screenshots given here.

I'll use the same article which you shared, published by @BloombergQuint.
Reference article here. Let's start.
google.com/amp/s/www.bloo…
First of all, I'd want to know from her why did she go forward with publishing her writeup without soliciting info from @BharatBiotech? Why unnecessarily put out such news so soon, and play pressure tactics? Was she denied info?

Because of ATTF and NLFT, members of which are still now active and are caressed by vested interests from time to time.

Care to explain, o king, what have you done to quieten them? Aren't you in their minds and souls?
I was always in support of the settlement of the Bru/Reang community. I am curious why does your cabal and your higher ups spin an issue that "Bengali Hindus must be ousted before Reangs' settlement". A peaceful coexistence is being thwarted because of this egging.
Seems you've already lost your cool when you use my profession against me.

The day the Nice attack happened, I had already understood that it was no more an anti-France protest specifically, it was jιhαd against Christianity.

As mentioned by @AbhijitChavda , the #ViennaTerrorAttack seems to be following the template of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

Multiple well-trained attackers, military-grade weaponry, hostage taking, city under siege ... we've seen it all before.

Still, we have missed a hint.
Because if the anger was really #AntiFrance, then why did the #ViennaTerrorAttack happen?

For the simple reason - Historical narrative linked with the Siege of Vienna in 1683.

1. Neither Charlie Hebdo nor Samuel Paty cursed a person or a group. Also because it was a sensitive issue, Samuel even asked those students who may not like it should walk out before showing. You won't take that into account, will you @chedetofficial?
2. Though I too agree with religious sensitivities in freedom of expression, but the actions taken by the Chechen was very disproportionate. You don't behead or stab someone just because he/she foul-mouthed you or your beliefs. You justifying this shows your true nature.
