The past few years have shown us many get covid and never have symptoms. The vaccines don't prevent it but likely reduce severity in those over 60. Any vaccine or past infection produces limited immunity to newer strains. I don't worry about it for the under 50 crowd unless they have risk factors. Vaccines themselves may pose risk to some patients. Hindsight is 20/20.
