I don't understand how these people aren't concerned about long term COVID effects. The health experts really need to do a better job of putting that information out there because I know a couple of blue collar workers who are more or less disabled in terms of being able to stand and work all day after having COVID. And nobody knows when they will get better or if they ever will.

Yes, it's absolutely the best rebuttal to people who are hesitant due to unknown side effects

Totally agree. A lot of people who overestimate the risks of the COVID vaccine also severely underrate the risks of COVID.

We’ll soon reach herd immunity thru infections and jabs one way or another.


https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/reaching-herd-immunity-is-unlikely-in-the-u-s-experts-now-believe/ar-BB1giyQR?ocid=spartandhp

I was probably mistaken, as often is the case, but what the article schreds posted says we're now looking at is basically how I've always though of herd immunity as. I never really thought eradication was the goal or possible tbh. @Trim

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

If enough of you people got chip’d now, this would be done entirely. Instead, we’re basically waiting for enough of you to get sick or die off in order to get our stats STRAIGHT.


Not sure how you can read your preferred article and think getting chip’d is a “personal” choice.

I am hopeful that the % of chipped combined with those who already had it and are not chipped will reach 80 or better.

Same. Also, @Trim I’m already half chipped.

Good, get full-chip’d and PI everyone you know to do the same. I’ll be bad cop to your good cop, remotely, if you prefer.

I’m requiring full vaccination of anyone I interact with. Prior COVID is no substitute.

Yeah, the vaccines are good enough that the risk from COVID is very low. Live and let die.

I get my first dose next week.  I can't wait to get it so everyone will shut up and stop telling me what to do.

NPR had a story yesterday about the low vaccination rate of rural health care workers.  It was something like 59%.  One thing that came up a couple times was that rural doctor offices have mandatory flu shots for their employees but the Covid shot is voluntary.  I have heard this in several stories, but none have spend one second explaining why this is a thing.  Why would one be voluntary and another be mandatory. 

Before Covid, I have heard of nurses losing jobs over denying a flu shot.  I know it's a tough nut to crack because the standard citizen isn't here to learn about what MRNA is or means, doesn't have a good understanding of stats or exponential spread, and also is somewhat untrusting of government.  Those folks often live off of the anecdotal evidence and opinions of those they know in relevant fields, and here we are rough ridin' around with not reaching herd immunity while flu shots are required and Covid shots are voluntary.

That is odd, especially since these are the idiots that constantly shout, "its just the flu".

well for one thing, the covid vaccines are only authorized by the fda on the basis of emergency use.

If we really cared we'd also tell people to get off their fat asses and exercise and eat right but in a friendly way though.

I wish it were politically expedient to declare a “war on obesity.”

Your obesity won’t kill your grandmother. Inauthentic talking point in relation to Covid.
