Am thinking the question is changing from "if I catch it" to "when I catch it".

I agree. I don't think this is going to go away. I think everyone will catch it sooner or later, vaxed or unvaxed.

Yep, that's the way it works everywhere else, don't see why Australia should be any different.   

To protect yourself get vaccinated and use whatever safe guards you want or can.   

With Breakthrough Cases, where those fully vaccinated get infected are also contagious and will continue to spread the virus.   that is sure to upset a few.

Unfortunately, we, yes all of us have to rethink what we do, how we interact with others.

My neighbour is double vax'd and she caught it from an unknown source. Lasted about 10 days, she said is was like a heavy winter cold.

That's what the Virologists have been saying all along.  ;)

And that is part of the problem.   While the Vaccine protects you, you also have the 'problem' that if you get a breakthrough case, you may think you just have a 'cold' and leave it at that.   Without being cautious and getting tested, how long can they be contagious without know it.

Spanish flu……infected only 1/3 of people….500 million…..and killed 50 million.
So, lots of people won’t catch it..vaxxed or unvaxxed.
But even if the death rate isn’t like the Spanish flu at 1 in 10, would you want to be unvaxxed ??

Guy at work said the same when he caught it.  But no one caught it off him,, including his family, so may be that you aren't overly contagious

Covid Rules dont / shouldnt apply to me, Only to those Anti Vaxxers  " Im Vaxxed and fully protected " attitude is something that Shites me on a daily basis at work ..
9 out of 10 of the vaxxed, I get to deal with seem to think they are totaly protected and safe from ever getting sick or spreading it  ..

All the fully vaxxed people I know are fully aware that they can still catch it and pass it on.

What gives them the confidence is that they have been told that if they catch it then it will most likely be less severe.
