    My question is (hope not to send this to Too Hot) but what is the difference between if you’ve been vaccinated or have contracted the virus? Either way you have antibodies to combat it correct? Or did I miss something? I’m honestly asking. If there’s no difference, then why do we strictly focus on Vaccine % as opposed to “immunity %”? I see this same thing in the military. If you’re vaccinated you don’t have to jump through hoops, but if you’ve had COVID, you still have to.

    Good question. And from what I've read, the immunity from having the antibodies can last years, maybe a lifetime. It should be either/or.

    Agree.




    You have a record of getting the vaccine while anyone can say they already had the virus. Plus there is an established 'percent' of protection from the vaccine while immunity from contraction is still anyone's guess right now.

    I can walk into a store right now and and nobody can ask if I have a vaccine, so just because there’s a record doesn’t mean anything. Actually on that note, there’s a record of people with COVID as well

    I just don’t understand why UF can’t have ALL of them fully vaxed at this point. There’s adequate supply, correct? I’m truly surprised the school doesn’t have them covered.

    Edit: Also, Too Hot is an incredibly informative forum. No doubt you have to wade through some bs. But, there are some really informed posters there over a wide range of topics.

    In my head--- UF
    Like anything else- pneumonia, broken leg- Doctors medicine and science.

    The vaccine efficacy is not 100%.

    This is a team sport so hopefully those who are vaxxed will provide leadership

    for every 1 really informed, there’s 15 that just put their political spin on it (each side). It’s mostly filled with smart dumb people and dumb smart people.

    It’s not quite that disproportionate lol. But, I understand your point. It can be frustrating over there. Lots of great info, though.
    God bless the mods!

    You can't force people to take a vaccine that really and truly has not been fully vetted. If I was under 40 I doubt I'd take it - just ride out the virus and be done with it. If I was under 30 and hadn't started having children yet, there's no way in hell I'd take it.

    Yeah I've had it because I'm over 60 and what the hell, it makes my life a lot easier. And I want to start cruising again. But thank God it was my choice.

    Why can’t you provide either proof of shot or proof of positive test? Both are on record. They rammed through drugs for obvious reasons and I’m glad. If someone has had it and has antibodies, isn’t it the same? Why take a vaccine that has the same effect but little testing in the grand scheme? Seems a fair question. What if in 5 yrs they say oops!? Didn’t see that coming. Sorry!

    Frankly, because it’s nobody’s business to know my medical history.

    True but you cant prove immunity from exposure without a positive test or MD/hospital record. Any Sharkman/MusCHUMP can say they have had the virus. And the reason for 'rammin' thru drugs and vaccine testing is that coronavirus(Covid) has been around for at least 5 years in 'labs.' And fortunately corona virus are very similar to influenza viruses.


    True, but if you need to show you have been vaccinated to attend an 'event', wouldnt a record be nice?

    Like that’s ever happened. They could call those recalls.
