Long story short: targeted vaccination is effective at preventing a global pandemic, but may be disastrous when several Covid 19 variants are already present in the population. Two problems are possible:
1. It may create ideal conditions for the virus to mutate resistance to the vaccine and future vaccines/tools.
2. The antibodies acquired through vaccination will prevent the natural antibodies from finding the virus by "binding" the virus and infected cells when these antibodies are no longer effective and one would prefer natural antibodies binding the virus instead.
What's your take?
