I'd assume that AF meets and mixes with many more people than the average person. That he was one of the 9%, yes it seems like a bit of bad luck, but isn't all that surprising.

Obviously since he's a high profile figure people will use this anecdote as more than just an anecdote. If he's hospitalized than it will add fuel to the fire for all the vaccine skeptics.

I wish him a fast recovery.

It was all peer reviewed. The vaccine is indeed, solid. Even the EU is interested in it to help alleviate their own vaccine fiasco.
I posted several links to videos by Dr. John Campbell over a year ago and he is still my daily source for information about covid-19.

He posted this video on February 5th about the Sputnik V version of the vaccine:


In the video he reports that, in an early trial, only 16 individuals out of 40,000 who received the vaccine actually got covid.

PS: I need to watch/listen to the video again to see if everyone in the trial received two doses.

Alberto must not have been practicing social distancing and mask usage... What a terrible example he sets. Anyway anyone with a brain who can read knows vaccines do not stop all infections and thus transmission - they are there to reduce the worst side effects and prevent hospitalisation. This is why its pointless IMO for a person who is healthy to get the vaccine if its clear they have a 99.9% of being completely fine. I'll take not being able to smell for a week over possible adverse reactions WITH NO RECOURSE if I happen to get one of the adverse reactions. I'll put money on my body doing the job - this is not Polio FFS. Every single person I know in my age group who has had covid has been perfectly fine after a week - symptoms ranged from headache/fever etc to no smell and thats it. The only people who have had issues have been elderly and those who have an underlying issue like obesity/diabetes etc. When you add in variants etc you end up going around in circles in a constant stream of vaccine injections every year - no thanks.

Here is just one example. Appointing Carla Vizzotti as a health minister. She was tested positive for covid a week later. No masks, hugging, etc.

You are wrong here. I would suggest you to read wikipedia or may be some introductory biology book on how vaccines work. I guess the newspapers describe it in a way that confuses people.
