Omicron, like its predecessors, is a wily virus indeed.

(I have added in 1st doses, and also combined the 3rd shots (Enhancements) with the Boosters)

I know, right? I wonder how they’ll spin it when omicron gets in and those people who complied are all coming down with a dose. No doubt it’ll be the fault of the unvaccinated.

I actually am not worried at all, not even close. Omicron is the last of my worries.

Good charts summarizing vaccine progress, and also showing how there hasn’t been many more first shots in the past few weeks.

Good numbers, just don’t freak out when Omnicron cases hits 80,000 p/day.

Estimate is that 1 in 75 are currently infected with Corona in the Netherlands. Hospital numbers however are still going down.

It was at 1 in 15 in the Uk and life continued.

I was there when it was around 1:40. Nobody gave a toss. Most people walking around maskless. Everyone still at work. My guess is that the majority of those cases were just positive tests which people ignored for all practical purposes.

435,496 doses were given yesterday, of which 17,603 were first doses, 42,417 were second doses, and 375,476 were Third/Booster shots. 17,157,687 are now fully vaccinated which is 73.40% of the Total Population.
Of interest, going on the Eligible (12+) population (around 90% of the total population), the 1st/2nd shots become 90% and 82% respectively.

Latest Taiwan COVID-19 Vaccine Adverse Event Notification Summary Report 111.1.13~1.19

FDA link: https://www.fda.gov.tw/TC/siteList.aspx?sid=1571

As with VAERS data from USA, Taiwanese data is often misrepresented.

A vaccine adverse event report refers to any event, at any time after vaccination, which people suspect or feel might possibly relate to the vaccination. These reported events occurred after vaccination but it does not mean they were caused by vaccination.

The number of adverse event reports themselves cannot explain or be used to draw conclusions on the existence, severity, frequency or incidence of vaccine-related problems, and should be explained in the context of other scientific information.

Taiwan did not publish any data on vaccine deaths.

In an email to AFP on December 17, a spokesperson from the Taiwanese CDC said no data has been published so far about deaths in Taiwan found to have been caused by Covid-19 vaccines.

Sounds like the vaccine is very safe for children and teens. Only one maybe possible but not quite verified death in the report.
