 Not cat pictures? They were pretending to scan QR codes. They could've made it into a CAT scan.

I'm sorry Canada but if Delta, and especially Omicron have taught us anything it's that proof of vaccination means jack squat as far as transmitting the virus is concerned. If you're trying to use it as a stick to force compliance with a soft vaccine mandate it's not working, try cutting off access to health services for those without vaccination and a valid medical exemption. Then you can stop with the theatrics and not risk your medical system collapsing. Personally I'm done with dine-in until we get a more effective treatment, vaccine passports would do nothing to change that because I'm smart enough to realize that vaccines are doing jack and squat about me getting infected in enclosed indoor spaces where I have to remove my mask.

Red Deer, go figure. I used to build offshore rigs miles high and go to party when they were cut down for transport in Red Deer. Shoulda punched out a few more lights.

If you're that worried, just have food delivered and be quiet.

Otherwise, I agree about cutting off health services...or at least reallocating non-vaccinated people to anti-vax treatment facilities with grueling wait times and the option to just go home.

AHS said it received complaints that restaurant staff had allowed customers to dine in after they showed a picture of a dog and ID.

Well...
*dons sunglasses*
that dog won't hunt...

"A Red Deer, Alta., restaurant was ordered to close after an investigation found staff were not asking for proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test and instead accepting dog photos from customers to dine inside, Alberta Health Services said."

Not severe enough. Revoke all of their licenses, fine them, and then have them reapply for all of their licenses.

WTF are you blathering about? There's about 300M documented cases of fully vaccinated people getting and spreading the variants. Vaccination reduced the period of maximum transmission of Delta by about a day, for Omicron it's done fark all.

It'll keep you from getting severely ill, but that's about it. We now know that it infects the upper respiratory system and replicates fast enough to cause you to be infectious but that the immune response doesn't really kick in until it passes over into the blood via the lungs.

On my first point, here's a paper from the UK showing effectively zero effect on transmission 12 weeks after 2nd dose for delta.

Here's the Lancet paper with 4 citations showing:

Indeed, there is growing evidence that peak viral titres in the upper airways of the lungs and culturable virus are similar in vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.

There's plenty of literature out there now showing that your immune system does jack all until the virus passes over to the blood via the lungs, only then does it marshal any meaningful defense.

TLDR, vaccines have near zero effect on population transmission rates.

And the papers point out that if this is true there is little reason to require vaccinations anywhere.

I don't quite understand what was going on. If a customer showed staff a photo of a dog, the customer would be let in the restaurant? But why? And why the talk of retraining? Nobody on staff could have thought a dog photo was proof of vaccination. Are they implying the staff member wasn't even looking at the photo, and was just pretending to scan a QR code?

The owner used a picture of a dog as a secret handshake for anti-vaxxers, if you showed a dog photo instead of a QR code the staff would pantomime scanning it like it is was an authentic code and seat them. As far as "retraining" the staff, that's going to consist of telling them to follow the law no matter what their boss says.

Couple of things, genius:

Even with Omicron, vaccinated people are infected for shorter periods of time than unvaccinated people, meaning if you're asymptomatic, it's less likely that you have the virus when you go out.

But more importantly, the goal to reduce the burden on health care systems is by getting everybody vaccinated so if they become infected, they are unlikely to require hospital care. If you restrict everybody who is dining to people who are vaccinated, the burden on the system is much lesser and therefore who gets infected while dining is less important. You're really trying to prevent unvaccinated people from getting sick, so you keep them out of restaurants - one venue where it's more likely to pick up due to people needing to remove masks to eat. It also may aid in motivating people to get vaccinated in order to enjoy non critical services like dining and entertainment, although that's more of a secondary benefit to such a policy.

So it doesn't mean "jack squat" in your sad little attempt to speak truth to power. Sorry your country (checks, yup) has thrown its hands up and cried "ain't nuthin you can do about this!" but perfect is the enemy of good so you guys have settled for obstinately terrible.

But more to the point, you're not smart. You think you're smart, but that's because you are not smart, and so you can't tell that you're not. I want you to think about that every time you want to open your mouth.

This. So long as only vaccinated people are exposed to the virus we're ok, because the real problem is the health system being overrun. Strike that, the problem is stupid people not understanding such basic concepts.

300M?  On top of all the other bullshiat you've spewed here, the worst offender to me is this number.

There's only been about 335M cases.  You're trying to say 90% of those cases are fully vaccinated people getting and spreading variants?  Or are you just making that up like you made everything else in your bullshiat post?

"vaccination still reduces infection" and "similar viral loads when infected" means ... vaccination reduces the chance you'll catch covid and spread it.

There is plenty of evidence of lowered chance of infection to the point of having symptoms, and faster recovery.  Your chance of infecting someone scales linearly with your chance of being infected yourself, and if you are infectious for a shorter period you'll also spread it less.

"jack all" is not supported by the papers you cited.

Yeah blame the 15 year old girl that's a good look for your business. What a twat. I hope that manager loses his job... But after 20 years in hospitality I know, he'll probably just try to bang her.
