    You’re going back and forth between two separate but interconnected topics.
    What you’re talking about is targeting conserved regions. In evolutionary biology we can test for positive selection (we...

    You should’ve taken my course instead. I could’ve conveyed the principle so you actually understood it.

    Not really how it works for leaky vaccines. I’m intimately familiar with Read’s work. He actually came out and gave an interview because his work was being misconstrued. Ironically, the very argument...

    They’re probably still having some effect on transmission, admittedly less than for previous variants.

    The vaccines may reduce the risk of a virulent variant in other ways, too. Reducing overall...

    You have the vaccines to thank, partly, for Omicron’s mildness.

    There are numerous studies suggesting that the vaccines are effective against severe disease with Omicron. With a booster, they are...

    There are studies that have looked specifically at Delta. Most have shown a relative reduction in infection between 40-60%, similar to what you posted. Here are a few.

    Yes, some vaccines are intended to work that way. Many anti-toxin vaccines are anti-disease with small impacts on transmission. Natural infection doesn’t always induce sterilizing immunity either,...
