Claims of 90% protection still leave one in 10 of the population vulnerable..
90% protection is good. Better than most estimates for the Flu vaccines made available each year.
Also, if you vaccinate 90% of the population with a 90% effective vaccine you get 81% resistant. This is higher than the calculated number needed for 'herd immunity'.
If someone is offering a tested vaccine against Covid I'd take it 'like a shot!'
