No, it doesn't work like that. You need to have the virus replicating strongly inside your body to be able to spread it around simply by touch. That means a big internal breeding colony, involving many infected "brood cells". But your T-cell immunity would kill those off, and probably B-antibodies would kill any remaining free virus in your blood.

That's only true if the expected badness of the vaccine (probability of bad side effects from vaccine * "badness" of those effects) is greater than the expected badness of a covid infection (probability of covid infection * badness of covid infection). It's true that the probability of covid infection goes down if everyone else takes it, but the degree to which the probability goes depends on its effectiveness. So paradoxically, if the vaccine is less effective, it's (relatively) better for you to take it.

This is the harsh truth of life. Airline lawyers are shedding tears in public talking about the losses they are suffering. However, the reality is that people with big money and politicians both flew and continue to fly using private business jets. The airlines received help from the state and simply laid off most of their employees. Who was in the red? And we were left in the red, we can't even get a refund when flights are canceled now (very often).
