those people who believe that are literally the dumbest among us..


the plant I.work at sent an email saying vaccinated employees don't have to wear masks. you have to give the plant nurse a copy of your vaccine card and they will put a sticker on your hard hat.. I got the email right before I left. I can't wait until tomorrow to hear all the drama this will cause..
(unfortunately, I'm contact and it doesn't apply to me, but I'm hoping my company follows suit soon)

So you are worried about health problems from the vaccines, but do not mention health problems from Covid even after you no longer have the virus.
The survival rate is "99.7%". Vaccine survival rate is much much much much much higher, so if its "survival rate" you are concerned with, the vaccine has a higher "survival rate", correct?
I had Covid in Sept last year. Ever since, i am super sluggish in the morning. Once i get moving i'm fine. But getting out of bed, i feel terrible for about the first hour. Never had that issue before Covid. I have the vaccine and had a sore arm for a day or so. I'll take that trade off any day. I wish the vaccine was available before i got infected, the "I got beat up and down with a baseball bat" feeling i had for a week wasn't fun. Did I survive? yep. Was it terrible, YES, and something i want again? Absolutely NOT.
Ask the SR poster here who was 100% against the vaccine and got Covid... Oh you can't because he died from it. I guess that .3% was a good trade off considering it was preventable, but he wasn't a sheep, so theres that... I have a cousin who's wife has been in the hospital for a month because of covid. They are about to discharge her, but she needs a walker to get around, but she survived, so no harm done i guess.....

The survival rate is so misleading. It's across all age groups. Young people will obviously have a better chance of survival than a senior citizen. That's an age group I'm quickly approaching. I trusted the science and got vaccinated.

I've said this a few times and it's worth repeating here. If you catch it and survive it doesn't mean you'll be fine. A co-worker of mine caught it. His doctor believes it caused long term heart damage. He will require a pacemaker very soon. He is 44 years old and was in perfect health before. Please get vaccinated. It's not worth the risk to not.

How do these people get a license? Is it a case of even a D gets you a degree?
I went to Med school. 95% of students are amazing. 4% are not amazing people, are doing it for the wrong reasons, but generally are still pretty good doctors. The other 1% are crazy/not good people.

The problem with Med school is that you can generally get by pretty well by studying and doing well on tests. There is very little actual oversight until your 3rd-4th years of Med school...but even then you are only at one place for a month before jumping to the next rotation. So weirdos can seemingly make it through without getting outed. It’s really not until residency, when everyone knows you and knows you well when things like personality disorders come to light.

There is the chance that this particular doctor is smart enough to be a doctor...she got through Med school, residency, abs passed her boards. That’s no easy feat. This isn’t about intelligence. This is about a maladaptive belief that frankly, is crazy. I’d hate to see her care of patients because there is no way that she practices evidence based medicine. She’s a snake oil salesman.

Before 2020, no mRNA vaccine had been authorized for use in humans because they aren't fully tested and the long term effects are unknown. If you're old/overweight/unhealthy, then maybe it's worth the risk to be a test subject.

We know there's a nearly 100% chance for healthy people who aren't old to recover from covid. We don't know how mRNA vaccines will affect our bodies long term. I'm going with what we know.

I see them pushing this vaccine on teenagers. The flu is deadlier than covid in that age bracket. It's madness.

I don't know if it's been discussed yet in this thread (lots of pages to go through that I haven't done) but I have been seeing a lot of stuff about the vaccine "sheds" during intercourse from one person to the next, etc, and all the microchips and demons are spread to those you have intercourse with if you've received the vaccine.

I just can't deal with people and their insistence that they have "researched" and they know this vaccine is bad and there's a reason government is forcing it on everyone with lotteries and such.

And I'm just like what have you researched & for how long that the scientists/researchers, biomed engineers, toxicologists, epidemiologists, immunologists, physicians and regulatory experts that I actually know in person and work with in real life in a global company (so drug development across many countries and governments) who have been doing this for 20-50 years haven't and what makes your limited research superior to theirs?

It's also interesting to me because many of these same experts have not practiced their expertise in real life in only 1 therapeutic area. Their experience spans MANY therapeutic areas. So it's interesting that you've researched "so much" but don't know this about these folks and you'd trust them if you got diagnosed with cancer or a brain tumor or Parkinson's, etc.

There was one article in the Washington Post (I think) about a woman who says she spent over 20,000 hrs researching the covid19 and the vaccines.

False.

Just anecdotally speaking, just in the small sample size of SaintsReport.com- there was a guy who’d posted regularly here over the last 15 yrs or so who passed away from Covid in April.. His obituary was posted here (ie he was a real person, not just an anonymous poster) with comments from his wife.. He was 40 years old, in great health , not obese and somewhat of a workout fanatic.. He was also very anti-vaccine, called Covid the “plan-demic “, etc.. While he and i rarely saw eye-to-eye, he definitely did not deserve to die.. And yet he did.. he died of Covid, not some other BS that was then chalked up to Covid.. Trust me, in this guy’s circle of belief, in his church, etc- if it had been ANYTHING else but Covid, that would have been the official cause of death, and that would have been what was printed in his obit… But it was what it was, and then his wife posted comments here on SR imploring eveyrone who was able to get the vaccine to please do so.. To be honest, that was my personal tipping point.. i , unlike most Americans, who were either wanting to get the vax as soon as humanly possible, or to never , ever get the vax no matter what the facts are.. i was in the “vaccine-hesitant”, wait-and-see camp.. i had been leaning toward going ahead and getting vaccinated after the first 3 or 4 months it became available , but then that particular poster’s death FROM COVID when he was in great shape at 40 yrs old, pushed me to go out and get my first jab the next day………. I still cant believe that the vaccine has become politicized.. IMO this shuould have been the ONE thing Americans of every political stripe should have been in agreement on.. Like Dolly Parton.. no one doesn’t like Dolly Parton, this vaccine should have been like ‘I disagree with your views 100%, but we can all thank god that we have a vaccine now’…. But nope.. this is why we cant have nice things.

You used an anecdote to prove something false? I'll stick with something a little more reliable.



Okay, bro.


I guess i need to spell it out for ya…. The case i sited is one guy on one message board for one sports team.. If you think that was an isolated incident, and that there aren’t similar cases over the last year plus, of very healthy, relatively young people dying from Covid- then believe what you want to believe , i guess… and by all means, do what you need to do in re to the vaccine.. i hope you or someone you love doesnt end up protesting like St PJ did to the point of losing your life.

Like what? There have been hundreds of millions of vaccines administered and it's becoming clear that states with high vaccination numbers are starting to noticeably see better outcomes than those with lower vaccination rates.

With 600k dead in the US alone, Covid has hit home for a lot of people. My daughter's healthy 50 year old color guard director died from Covid, 3 teachers from her school have succumbed to it. I've lost 3 friends to it. My best friend's sister nearly died from it last month.

But hey, you can keep preaching ignorance, but don't be surprised when people push back on the issue.
