Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In Ireland boosters have been administered within 6 Months of the second jab. There is no reason why this cannot be done on an ongoing basis if required to contain the pandemic. Uptake has been the 90% range and this has contributed to a very low increase in deaths compared to a huge spike in Omicron and Delta infections.

You will have to provide empirical evidence to support your contention that the unvaccinated are no more likely to spread the virus than vaccinated people, or that vaccination has no effect on "numerous people." That is not reported by leading infectious diseases experts in Ireland.

On ET it is best practice to embed your links and give a brief synopsis of what the reader can exact to find there. People don't have time to follow raw links on the off chance their may be something relevant or useful there. Also your first link refers to a link that is over 10 months old - which is rather a long time ago in the evolution of this pandemic and societal and medical responses to it.

What Frank said. I already mentioned the same a few days ago (trying to help a newbie).

It would be good if you could take a bit of time doing that: this would help other readers understand your point and show a bit of consideration. Thanks!

in Losing Battle Against Omicron,
in Latest Data Omicron Variant, and
in Herd Immunity .. Filling the Gaps

since Israel confirmed neither mRNA "vaccine" prevented infection, re-infection or "breakthrough vaccine cases of delta or the brief appearance of a so-called DeltaPlus variant last July in Milton Leitenberg SARS-CoV-2 virus Weaponized;

Planas et al, "Reduced sensitivity of SARS-CoV-2 variant Delta to antibody neutralization", 8 July 2021

so by month's end, the scramble to revive "vaccine" value in preventing "severe illness or death" rather than immunity, had penetrated even value-priced USAToday, which advised:

Once infected, though, vaccinated people are just as contagious as those without that protection  -- meaning they need to wear a mask and keep their distance to avoid passing on the virus.

in case you missed it AND CDC 5+5 chief did not mention in any prior booster advert
High number of Omicron mutations render antibodies ineffective - study, 22 Jan 2022
New research indicates the 46 mutations found in the COVID-19 Omicron variant have rendered [mRNA induced] antibodies ineffective, accounting for the high number of re-infections and breakthrough cases.
The peer-reviewed study titled "Omicron SARS-CoV-2 variant: Unique features and their impact on pre-existing antibodies" was first published in the Journal of Autoimmunity and was produced by Kamlendra Singh, a professor in the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine and assistant director of the college's Molecular Interactions Core and Bond Life Sciences Center investigator.
Two of the mutations had first been recorded in the Delta or Delta Plus [!] variant, which preceded Omicron by several months. Of the 46 mutations found, 30 were identified in the S-protein, while the remainder were located elsewhere in the virus cell[sic].
