Omicron will fuck the mudbloods harder than the purebloods. Was this by design?
-32 mutations in the spike protein and 50 overall
-10 in receptor (CD147) binding domain (there were only 2 in Delta)
Narrowness of immune response:
-The mRNA and viral vector vaccines induced only spike protein antibodies in the inoculated test subjects
-In comparison, whole inactivated virus and natural infection induce antibodies to many parts of the virus
-Hence, purebloods and inactivated vax test subjects will mount a broader immune response against Omicron
Original antigenic sin:
-Subjects injected with the old formulations have broadly locked their immune response to only a few antibodies
-Any new formulation of the injection will amplify those antibodies rather than inducing new ones
-Even natural infection cannot turn off the original antibodies entirely
-Omicron may have mutated to take advantage of non-neutralising antibodies to the injection spike protein
-This would mean that the virus can more easily latch onto the CD147 receptor and enter cells in the mudbloods. Rapid spike in infections among mudbloods is indicative that Omicron has been spreading for some time among the mudbloods.

Anyway, tetanus and diphtheria are two examples of vaccines that require regular boosters. Chickenpox (aka shingles) is another. And there is the obvious example of the flu vaccines.
Yes you are I'm in your head rent free.
Tetanus booster: 10+ years, supremely effective, essentially immune
Covid booster: 2-6 months, supremely ineffective
