In another display of the vaccine’s waning effectiveness—or durability issues—Bryan Adams, a Canadian rock ‘n roller who is fully vaccinated, tests positive for COVID-19 for the second time. He was tested upon arrival at Milan’s Malpensa Airport on Thursday, ahead of the unveiling of the 2022 Pirelli calendar that he photographed. Adams, 62, previously tested positive at the end of October and showed no symptoms.
Adams, who also enjoys a career as a photographer, has shot the 2022 Pirelli calendar, after initially being engaged to shoot the 2021 version that was canceled due to the pandemic. Adams was expected to appear at in-person press events promoting the calendar Sunday and Monday, but that was now uncertain.
As the pandemic continues and new variants appear, the vaccines are proving less and less effective in preventing infection. There are known benefits to vaccination, such as less severe infection and lower mortality rates. However, the spread of COVID-19 is still at full force, even with vaccine mandates and forced lockdowns. What will become of vaccines? Will they be a seasonal requirement?
