UK - Why is Boris Johnson pushing the vaccine?

He can't vaccinate the whole country! What about people who have already have the virus? They will already have the antibodies.

Update:

BUT WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALREADY HAD CORONAVIRUS?! THEY WILL HAVE THE ANTIBODIES SO THEY WON'T NEED A VACCINE! HE IS TALKING ABOUT VACCINATING THE WHOLE COUNTRY!

    Oh yes he can! One of the really, very couple of things the mendacious public-school oaf has actually promised that he can really DO! And if you've currently had it it's likely that a top-up jab will certainly confirm advantageous!

    Talk about damned if he does, and damned if he doesn't.   And he's actually saying the whole country will be OFFERED the vaccination.    Of course not everybody will take it, but if even the majority do, that shouild mean fewer people will need to be in hospital should they catch the virus, which is the aim - to protect the NHS.

    I don't think there are stats to say having Covid means people don't need to be vaccinated -  knowing for how long natural immunity lasts is unknown.

    At least the man is doing SOMETHING.... even if I hope he's not relying too much on vaccination to end all this?

    Why can’t the whole country he vaccinated? 

    It’s going well so far , other than religious abs conspiracy nuts who don’t want it.

    You still need the vaccine even if you have had the disease, as having the disease only provides a few months of protection, if you are lucky.

    There is enough to vaccinate the whole country, not everyone will want it but that doesn't mean most won't get it. The antibodies don't work for long because without the vaccine your immune system won't fire at it until you are sick.

    A COVID infection does not reliably produce enough antibodies to convey protection. There have been people who have been mildly infected who have gone on to suffer a more severe second infection.

    To make billions for his mates who have shares in the big pharma companies. If you add up all the daily infection rates most of the country has had Covid, that's if they are not lying about the figures, so why would somebody who has had it even need a vaccine.

    He probably has shares in the medical companies, and the vast cost of all this, being paid for by tax payers money, will go as profits to them and ultimately be paid out to shareholders. He'll probably be given a token job with them when he 'retires'.

    Mr Johnson is much maligned but he has the nations interests at heart.

    (Honestly).

    So we can reopen the economy and keep people safe. What a stupid question. Do take your medication. 

    The people who've had the virus have only had the original strain and may not be protected against the new ones which is why everyone should be vaccinated.
