@jwildeboer Not where I live, Pfizer only.
But if https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/health/oxford-astrazeneca-covid-19-vaccine.html is describing "classic vector vaccines", then I am not taking any of those either.
All I read is that DNA is used instead of RNA to produce the spike proteins. Still a gene therapy.
My main concern is that the spike protein is not good for the body in general, for instance latching on to the capillary walls and introduce drag and slower blood flow.
@clacke @jwildeboer First of all, corona is not a new virus, some "colds" are corona in action.
And I'll take my chances with the natural occurrence of spike proteins on the virus shell, rather than fabricated mechanisms of "free-floating" proteins that (IIUIC) attaches itself to other cells, with the intent of triggering the immune response.
When Robert Malone (https://news.yahoo.com/single-most-qualified-mrna-expert-173600060.html) is seemingly being scrubbed from all kinds of places (such as YT and Wikipedia) and ignored, get suspicous.
@clacke Personally, I prefer the mRNA vaccines, but the viruses used for vector vaccines are replication-deficient.
They can enter cells, but before a virus replicates many more steps need to be made.
It is possible due to manufacturing mistakes to have viruses that can replicate in immunocompromised people. But they test for that and that should be no problem for the people who feel so invincible that they are sure Covid will not harm them.
"My main concern is that the spike protein is not good for the body in general"
You know what else contains spike proteins and ain't good for the body in general? The Corona virus. And guess what increases your chance of that one uncontrollably self-multiplying inside your body? Not getting vaccinated.
