    Did they release all of the data or did the WHO give in to Chinese political pressure?

    I suppose they released data. A subsequent trial, I didn't note where, it may have been the Philippines, got better results than the 50% effectiveness of the initial trial on Brazilian slum dwellers.

    Singapore as of June 4. "HSA is currently still awaiting outstanding data on the vaccine from Sinovac for it to complete its evaluation of the quality, safety and efficacy of the vaccine for inclusion in Singapore's national vaccination programme, it said." but they are allowing private clinics to give Sinovac jabs.
    Turkey had a trial with better effectiveness, Indonesia has used it, it doesn't appear to be bad, not sure what variant Bahrain is dealing with. Sputnik 5 seems to have manufacturing problems, so I'd go Sinovac.

    In Bahrain you could assume they have the Indian variant because most of the workforce is from India and I believe people travel (or did) back and forth.

    About the use of Sinovac in Indonesia. An article in Bloomberg said Sinovac was 97% effective. Covid cases did not need hospitalization (or result in death). The article also said the lab results for Sinovac was about 55% effective in preventing people from catching Covid. Those 2 statements look like they are mixing apples and oranges. To me that sounds like Sinovac will help reduce the spread of Covid and it's less likely to be fatal.

    There was a article out there that more or less said the Sputnick vaccine was a killed version of the virus that was found to be replicating in the vaccinated person. My guess is that was not true or it would be all over the news. Who can you trust?

    The CDC current recommendation (last update) is CT value of 37. The WHO has lowered theirs to be more inline with the CDC. I suppose that would calm the nerves of the 'kooks' you refer to.

    The booster shot seems a good idea especially if the first two shots you have are Sinovac.

    Is there any recommendation from WHO or DOH on the time gap to take a booster shot?

    The booster shot could become the annual shot (like the flu vaccine) as variants keep occuring.

    The CDC pointed this out in a directive that basically said read the materials and updates from the manufacturer of the tests. If a test is not determinative, send it back for a retest. We had no idea what Cebu was doing, and have no idea here.

    Last I read was 60-90 days. 60 should be safe.

    Yes, and that was actually noted in the data they sent to Brazil. They knew it was.
    97% effective at preventing death, 55% effective at preventing catching covid and and therefore reducing hospitalizations. Sinovac did not control the protocols used in the clinical trials, which partly accounted for the wide variance in results, then they have still not released data. But it seems to work fine for what it is. There were a few people who got temporary Bells Palsey (half of the face goes slack), but it seemed to disappear over a few months. The problem we all have is not releasing the data. But if that's what's available, I'd get it and shoot for the booster.
