You know that is or choice and I understand your concerns an had several of the same thoughts to be honest!! And right off my first response was I am not taking that shit. But then I thought about it some more and then we lost some more good family members one in pretty good shape but a little older and it was a tough loss.My biggest worry is that the vaccine got made very quickly, side effects can be severe, and we still don’t know what the long term effects are.
Sure one could argue that getting the vaccine and side effects is better than the virus but that also assumes you’re going to contract it. I’m still on the fence about getting it because the science worries me.
That’s just my natural skepticism. After hearing about all sorts of complications I don’t feel safe taking it.
I wouldn't be too sure of that...
oh glad it was nothing serious and only the spicy flu. Yet 4 people in my family are gone for ever. But they just must of been geriatric and in bad shape I guess and deserved it? Was it blown out of proportion on how deadly it was? I would say yes a lot and the government paying hospitals thousands for treating covid patients that passed. This made it so Covid got reported as cause of death in ever case that someone died, Like the guy that had the mild case but still out riding his bike and got hit by a car and died, yet they reported it as a covid death. Yes we get that those thing elevated our numbers in the US a lot. But to say it was nothing but the spicy flu just shows how truly under educated you are on the subject. The truth is the disease had a mind of its own some people hardly had symptoms but others could not even breath for themselves. That's nothing like the Flu.Yea now that’s something that’s always scared me. AIDS is a death sentence, COVID isn’t. I’m merely weighing the possibility of contracting it vs getting the vaccine that may have side effects that could also kill me as it has done to other, albeit very few.
I never took this whole COVID debacle seriously, mainly because everyone was panicking but it all seemed silly to me. I watched people literally fight over toilet paper and scream if someone sneezed! Obviously that’s changed a bit but even still.
When I say I’m isolated I mostly just sit at a desk away from people currently, and barley go out. Thant being said a friend made a good comparison, it’s no different than the shots we had to take as kids, and no one wants polio.
I just don’t care for the “think of other people” argument; it’s a morally corrupt argument because it seeks to shame rather than defend its stance; not because I don’t care about others but I just never saw it any more than a extra spicy flu that mainly affected elderly and people with prior complications.
My doctor wasn’t in but the attendant on the phone said it shouldn’t be an issue with the scar tissue in my lungs, so that’s one concern done.
That did not happen. Stories of that sort collapse on investigation the same way lies about election fraud did. They were “it happened to a friend of a friend” level tales shared by an echo chamber of misinformation. Ask the nurses who provided the actual care what they think of those stories.Covid got reported as cause of death in ever case that someone died, Like the guy that had the mild case but still out riding his bike and got hit by a car and died, yet they reported it as a covid death.

MAYBE - but it they even briefly (more than 15 minutes or so.) had any contact whatsoever with any of the rest of us for any reason at all - they likely were exposed.
Well o.k. MAYBE them.
Another myth. Human Coronavirus has been around since the dawn of time. There is not a tribe on Earth that has not had some kind of contact whether fatal or non fatal with it.
Well, Coronavirus in general yes - but that is a type, and not all are deadly - the common cold is a Coronavirus! COVID specifically as pointed out, I could see a theoretic possibility - but do find it UNLIKELY.Another myth. Human Coronavirus has been around since the dawn of time. There is not a tribe on Earth that has not had some kind of contact whether fatal or non fatal with it.
If condoms work why do people still get pregnant? Condoms must be useless then.If the vaccines were good; why are fully vaccinated people STILL getting COVID?
Not good enough. Not moral, not informed and not adult.If you wish to get vaccinated, do so. If you don't wish to get vaccinated, don't. Don't try to shame anyone regardless of the choice they make.
