Who wants it anyway. In the following article...

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-9758477/So-just-long-jab-protect-Covid.html

... you'll find that the jab will bequeath you booster jabs forever:

"As to why you need a booster, he explains that the first vaccine
often generates a slow, small response in the immune system because it
is seeing something brand new, and this response will fade fairly
quickly. The second dose generates a quicker, bigger and
longer-lasting response from the immune system.

Crucially, though, Professor Irving says: 'This, too, will fade over
time, as the memory cells reach the end of their natural life, leaving
the individual with less protection. A booster jab stimulates the
immune system again so that it makes more memory cells that produce
antibodies.' "

... while if you wait for natural immunity, it'll last forever:

"Meanwhile, a study published in the journal Nature in May found that
people who'd had mild cases of Covid-19 were still producing
antibodies against the virus eight months later -- and based on
previous experience, this could continue for decades."

... And hey, how good is that Pfizer? Latest data from Israel where
they're starting their third wave even though the population is mostly
Pfizer-vaccinated, they've lowered the official Pfizer effectiveness
from 94% in May, to just 64% in June. and in July ...?

Yes this is interesting, both the UK and Isreal have got an increasing
number of covid cases while have a relative high rate of vacanation. The UK
has a higher death rate but Isreal has not, or it is still to arrive.
