Vaccine hesitancy and variants mean Australia may not reach Covid herd immunity – researchers

Modelling by the Burnet Institute indicates some need for lockdowns and other public health measures will remain long term. . . .

Australia is unlikely to achieve herd immunity with current levels of Covid-19 vaccine hesitancy and the higher infectiousness of new variants, modelling from Melbourne medical research laboratory the Burnet Institute has found.

The scenarios modelled by researchers assume a vaccine rollout speed of either 150,000 or 250,000 doses per week, and that on detection of the first case, symptomatic testing increases, isolation of positive cases continues, masks become recommended but not mandatory, and contact tracing continues for up to 250 diagnoses per day.



The projections represent hypothetical near-worst-case scenarios, and model outbreaks that occur once Australia is Covid-free, without lockdowns and other public health measures in place.

The models reveal that public health initiatives will remain vital even in vaccinated populations and that without those measures, “thousands of Victorians would be hospitalised and die if an initially small outbreak was left to spread through the community unchecked,” the research published on Friday says.

I think older people are more at risk with the disease and young people are more at risk with the vaccine. Even if I hadn't had the disease, I'd want the choice to be mine.

We've managed to protect my 89 year old MIL who lived with us part time and avoid my parents until a month after we recovered from covid. They are all vaccinated now. My parents by their own choice and my nurse SIL made the call for my MIL with dementia.

And yes, I'll get my latest covid antibody test results next week. That will be 11 months of positive tests since I had the virus and negative tests before that. I give blood every 8 weeks and they test it for covid19.

Edit: My covid results are in and as of June 8th (11 months now), I still test positive for antibodies, but governments refuse to even consider that I may not need a vaccine and try to push vaccine passports for every reason possible. Something's not right.
