@MrLChristmas We've been over this - yes. A/B titers in prior unvax'd cases show far greater indiv. variation and lower immunological quality than those who've completed a primary vax line.

Nevermind that N/I does nothing for those who cannot be allowed to seroconvert or be infected.
@MrLChristmas To cap (I'm tired, need sleep), if you want to prove N/I = vax, go collect 1000 unvax'd people, test their blood every mo. over 8 mos. for immune response, and rank it. % decline A/B per mo. Rate Covid infect/symptoms/hosp/death per age grp. & A/B response. Compare to vax'd.
@MrLChristmas But here's the real kicker - the bio and med nerds have been doing that all along, and the fact that they haven't been shouting it from the rooftops, that the best they've collectively found is *shrug*, is quite telling. It tells us maybe N/I isn't the same as vaccination.
@MrLChristmas I've taken a hard tack not because I think you're antivax, but many who are find confirmations in beliefs like these, and I don't want someone legit on the fence to mistakenly choose going unprotected because they read somewhere that the two routes are equivalent. They are not.
@MrLChristmas If current guidance changes, if a number of peer-reviewed studies prove N/I is a viable alternative to vaccination for the vast majority of the otherwise-healthy population, I'm more than willing to change my views on the matter. But, as of now, that isn't the case.
@MrLChristmas As for you being vaccinated, I think that's the one source of common ground we've found here, and I (honest-to-God) hope you stay safe, happy, and healthy. At the end of the day, we all want this strange time in our lives to be over, however that ends up happening. Take care.
