1. Mr Pete Mr Pete United States says:

    Let's not get QUITE so excited.
    "Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines induce robust T cell response against SARS-CoV-2 variants" welll...
    - Induce improved response
    - Among those convalescing from the virus
    - In two (a small fraction) of the many existing variants... for which overall the vaccines are NOT showing a "robust response" in all cases

    And this is a study
    - Of EIGHT people
    - Taking three samples from each
    - With no representation of the uncertainties involved

    We have no idea if...
    - This was double blind
    - They went on a fishing expedition to discover these results
    - They somehow reproduced the results (hard to do with so few samples)

    What is the probability of a false positive? We have no idea.
