About half of the people I know, including nurses, seem very reluctant to get the vaccination. Surprisingly, this includes different political demographics. What better way to settle it than by coming to a Saints message board.

edit: Geez I somehow allowed people to pick more than one answer on a yes/no poll. Doh!

I won't put anything more on it , I'm honestly hoping everyone is well , right now my wife and I are on the fence , right now I'm having a hard time trusting the news media and the corruption in our own country . I just wish the whole world could just get back to normal . Paul , if you did pass away , you were in good company .
Hey look, nobody wants to put anybody down on this. It has been a pretty terrible year for just about everybody. I am in the same boat as many people who are just royally ticked off about all of this. My whole family has been shot up with Vax, we have taken all three that have been put on the market. I won't go into my background of my family, but we kind of know a lot of cool stuff and we really keep up with facts. There is no such thing as a 100% deal in this world, but these vaccines look pretty darn good. I told some friends a while back, before we got the Vax, that I would pay $5K per dose for the stuff and I still would. About 99% of the anti-vax information out there is total junk, there is a small grain of truth in some of it, but not much. In a perfect world, we would have had years of time to test these vax shots out, we did not have the time, but we do pretty much have hundreds of millions of doses out there in the world. The incidence of REAL and ACTUAL negative reactions is extremely low. My wife had the Pfizer vax, she felt bad after the first shot, I had Moderna and after the second shot I felt like a dog. I would do it again, without hesitation. We are going on vacation next month.....no real fears. (We are even looking at cruises in a few months.....yes, floating virus labs.) We will be "careful" but these vax shots are like gold. The technology behind them is solid. I am not living the rest of my life under a rock, unless that rock has unlimited seafood and beer.

We will get back to some sort of normal....much sooner... if more people get shot up, they won't have any REAL excuses to keep us locked up then!

It is your decision, but don't believe the negative hype out there. The 5G chip is not THAT annoying.

Anxiously awaiting the text for my second shot appointment. Most of my friends have said it's knocked them on their butt.
Moderna has a bigger hit on the second dose and Pfizer has a bigger hit after the first dose. That is the general feedback that I have gotten back from a fairly large sample size. A really good friend of mine and his wife, both in great shape and mid to late 30's, both got second Moderna dose yesterday. The wife felt like junk today and stayed in bed, my buddy toughed it out and said it was like a BAD hangover. He has some experience there.

Got my second dose of Pfizer this past Saturday and just like the first time, I came home, cut grass, washed the cars, etc. I felt great.
Then I died on Easter Sunday. I’m old. :hihi:
Got you beat by 15 years. I'm doing well also. The 2nd dose was a hammer. I felt immense fatigue the day after the 2nd dose. No fever, just tired. I felt fine the next day.

the fact that JenningsTrucker used the "some people get sick and some are dying" scare tactic, I wonder if he knows that there isn't a single drug or even food that doesn't do that to people.
He's probably one that says things like "the virus only kills xx% of the population, so we shouldn't worry about it", but is worried about a vaccine that does that to million times% less than that..

I'm due for my 2nd dose in a couple weeks. Dreading it really....I got sick from the first shot since I'd already had covid. Imagine I'll get sick again. Having to convince myself that the 2nd shot is necessary. I've been sick and the 1st shot was basically a booster...not sure 2 boosters are completely necessary.

Excellent write up, J.T. 👍👏. Thanks 🙏🏻!

Moderna x 2......ZERO side effects. 🙂

Thank you USA 🇺🇸 for getting this life saving vaccine into as many arms as possible & as FAST as possible!

As previously noted, I had Pfizer #2 yesterday morning. Woke up way early this morning with a dull headache, and some very minor body aches. Around 4am finally got up to take some Tylenol. Right now I feel mostly fine, but kinda like a hangover. I didn't sleep that well. I do take a medication for a rheumatic disease which suppresses the immune system, so maybe that's why I appear to have gotten off relatively easy. Of course the drawback is I won't be able to achieve as high efficacy as those who don't take this type of medication.

You've got to be forking kidding me

Judy Mikovits continues her " i hate Fauci" tour i see.

At some point, she HAS to let it go or go seek out professional help. She is holding a grudge from 35 years ago.

She is a nut job. But, some folks give her credence, so here we are.


a snippet- pay close attention to the "Wording" used in the beginning and end.

Yeah. And in some of the small animal models with others of these, they follow it with the luciferase gene, which lights it up, and you can track it. And you can see it stay in the spleen, and you can see that it goes to the brain. So you've hit to the heart of your white blood cells of your ability to make immune responses. So I can see this and then those of course with chemokine, cytokine signaling the inflammatory cytokine storm you're going to get when you inject this synthetic. It can traffic everywhere in the body. For me, I can't even sleep just how evil this is. This is just so deadly. I can't scream it loud enough from the rooftops.
the "lucifer-ase gene" ( which is a real name ) but she ended with "how EVIL"

that was no slip- it was purposeful.

Got my 1st Pfizer last Thursday. Arm was a little sore when I moved it on Friday, but otherwise no issues. My wife got the Maderna and it's been affecting her asthma.

Look, when you get the kind of negative reaction you got, and also people are pointing out better information, it's not because we like or dislike you. It's because you're very very wrong and posting dubious things and we're trying to point you to more reliable information. Some things are opinion/perspective, others are more like facts.

You've proven to most of us that your 'junk filter' is bad. It's ok, a lot of people have bad junk filters. It's why we tend to go to experts to get an expert opinion. i.e. unless you're mother in law in a plumber, you don't ask her for advice on repairing a main line shut off valve.

And if you have a hard time trusting sources, then don't try to act like the answers you found are definitive. If you're unsure, then you're unsure. But don't act like you're totally sure of the opposite of reality.

How about you just reach out to your doctor and ask them?

You know, I had a bad 'stomach reaction' for my second shot. And I can't remember if I also had it for my first. So... maybe.
My wife said "Didn't you also eat half a bag of beef jerky?" . . . which I thought was a fair question.

Finally convinced myself to get it and just got the second dose a week ago. In 2 weeks, I will not be wearing a mask into stores anymore. I'll walk to my table at a restaurant with it on just for theater. But now that i'm vaccinated, i'm done with the mask thing.

One interesting side effect that may have some credence are menstrual irregularities. There’s a forum called myPMG, which is nothing but female physicians. There is a thread of tons of women who previously had very regular cycles to having significant menstrual irregularities immediately after the vaccine...some weeks, some ongoing.

Of course it may just be anecdotal evidence, but I’ve heard of it enough by very reputable people, including one I know personally, to at least consider the possibility.
