FIRE RANT: Booster Shots for What?

So, the big news recently has been the fact that booster shots for covid-19 are becoming available for various citizens in the USA.  However, I have issue with this.  First, we have folks that are vaccinated getting covid-19 multiple times which means the vaccine isn’t some immunity pill.  So, listen double or tripled down on it and get more shots in the arm.  Yes, the vaccine pretty much stops you from dying from covid-19 but it clearly doesn’t make getting it impossible.  Second, they expect the same folks that already got shot in the arms several times to get vaccinated again while we still haven’t addressed the rest of folks that aren’t vaccinated and don’t wear masks.  Essentially, it seems they are trying to back into herd immunity by hoping if they make the vaccinated folks have lower infection rate maybe that compensates for those that have high infections rate.  Ladies and gentlemen, its just math.  100% protection rate in best case scenario averaged with 0% (folks with no vaccine and no mask) the best you will get is 50%.  Weighted average doesn’t matter because I think we’re barely at 50% of country vaccinated so my simple math is directionally correct.  Third, I’m not interested in getting vaccinated when my kids still aren’t eligible.  Maybe instead of trying to figure out they can keep exploiting for shots they should have put more energy to making rest of population vaccine eligible.  So again, not interested in getting vaccinated a 3rd time for incremental protection, not interested in compensating for the non-vaccinated-non-masked folks, and not getting vaccinated again, when my kids aren’t taking care of.
