    There is a small fraction of people that believe that (or something like it) is a significant possibility. Some of them think it's a good idea and others hate it, but they all have one thing in common: they're vaccinated. The rest of the cockapoos are all talk.

    D0D is real, he's just really proud of discovering a way to post without it increasing his post count. In a karmic sense he's found yet another way of saying: talk is cheap.

    The fact that you guys track post counts like it is important is strange and pathetic. Itís actually quite sad that your life revolves around an Internet forum. Carry on.

    So according to my wife's cousins FB posts, if you want to enjoy the biggest schnitzel in Germany you have to be vaxed fully and prove it at the door. And if you're not vaxed you have to order to go and stay home.
    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.

    I donít pay any attention to post counts, canít tell you what mine is. Someone here brought up that anomaly with DOD, so I looked. His post count was zero in spite of making several posts. I thought that was curious.

    Iím posting here between surgeries, my life doesnít revolve around an Internet forum. Whatís sad is that you and your family got vaccinated and had breakthrough infections but didnít get very very sick but you donít think vaccines work. Youíre too stupid to understand any of this but really youíre a worthless troll akin to Skidog.

    Aside from that we're talking about a contagious disease here. You want as few people to get the diseases as possible because that means less spread. Statistics have shown that vaccines reduce transmission of Covid significantly.

    The only negative effects of vaccine mandates and passports are on and because of the people who refuse to follow them The ONLY negative effects. Lockdowns are another story, but if people all get vaccinated and wear masks in appropriate settings we don't need lockdowns.

    You donít sound satisfied. Maybe carryon yourself to another corner of the internet. Or stick around because you canít quit us. We complete you.

    Now that Dudís dud posts have been torn apart can we get back to expert level discussion - at least until the next round of ďrandom troll tries to play dumb and repeats question from months agoĒ?

    MagnificentUnicorn and others with the medical field background. Wondering about comments for either of the 2 mRNA US vaccines boost after the single J&J back in the spring and if there really are any notable reasons to get one over the other or just schedule at a site and take what they have available.

    Thinking most may have a day after the shot to set aside with possible reaction like headache, body pains, etc. so would like to do that in the next week or so and probably go for a Friday or weekend time slot.

    Google shows a WSJ article behind paywall and then some British Med articles as the top results with Astrazeneca discussions.

    Moderna mRNA or Pfizer mRNA is what I am leaning toward over another J&J (which I would have maybe done shortly after the first shot if it was not set up at first as a one and done.)

    People should get vaccinated and seriously consider getting a booster, I got a booster and the only side effect was a little soreness at the injection site

    Yeah, it's pretty fucking weird that he'd go through the trouble.

    Double weird since all he has is boilerplate alt-right COVID misinformation shitposting.

    Personally not a hudge fan of trollbans, but this dude is especially egregious and IMO needs to be gone.

    Especially since he's been here as a multi-alias repeat offender as FullStack and/or Ow My Balls.

    It's a UNIBONGER kinda situation where you just gotta squelch that shit otherwise the shitstain keeps spreading and ruining the rug that ties the room together.

    There was a discussion on baked potatoes a few pages back that was getting pretty good.

    In other news, Pfizer getting approved for 5-11 year olds for the lil' gulagites. Moderna not far behind for 6-11. Boosters approved for all 6 months from second dose. Now we get to play the game of what happens when you actually get the majority of your population to theoretical herd immunity levels in a relatively short amount of time.

    Look, Iím not an expert. I work in a hospital and talk with really smart people all the time. Iím reporting what happens in the real world itís not the news.

    As far as your booster, from what Iíve gleaned, just get one of the mRNA vaccines. Statistically it sounds like it doesnít really matter which one. Iíve read and discussed this with many physicians, ICU doctors, our infectious disease doctor and basically every physician that I work with daily. Donít sweat it, get whatís available and youíll be well protected.

    Almost posted that here yesterday but held off to avoid politicization, but if we are gonna go there....

    Many years from now, I hope that the world will remember how fucking stupid these people are. I hope that it is well documented, widely discussed, and that it is widely accepted that these republican, anti-mask, anti vaccine, folks are among the dumbest motherfuckers to have ever walked the planet. When these unvaccinated people visit the hospital, they should be cared for, Hippocratic oath and all, but it should be in a unheated make-shift army tent with the Trump logo on it, just like his hotels, and they should be charged a royalty fee on their medical bill. Their graves should be marked with an asterisk or some kind of symbol to ensure that they are remembered for their idiocy well past their death, and their own family members can reflect on the shame and humiliation that this person has brought to their bloodline.

    So it was a bad thing to quarantine small pox, measles, TB, etc?

    Those vaccines that are REQUIRED for children to attend school and for adults to attend college were only allowed religious exemptions because the level of immunization and herd immunity in society is very strong. Without that there would be zero exemptions and folks who can't or won't simply couldn't go to school with other kids..

    Whataboutism... ebola? Should people with ebola be banned from participating in society
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    We’ve had vaccine mandates in schools for decades and they were generally well received by people like you now opposed to them because of tribal political bullshit.

    The Libertarian adage is: Your right to swing your arm ends before my nose.

    So, society has always reasonably placed some requirements on behavior to be part of a free society.

    Even the Founding Fathers understood the need for public health measures such as quarantine and immunization (variolation), and the right of society to command such things from unwilling members.

    Do you have the right to be drunk? Yes. In Public? If you do not disturb others. While driving? That is hazarding others.

    I equate choosing to be unvaccinated with being drunk while driving. Yea you might make it home from the bar without hitting anyone. Or you might cause a multicar pileup. You are hazarding others, society, and yourself much more than if sober and society has decided to restrict your liberty to behave in such a manner so that they can be free and safe from such unjustifiable danger.

    No man is an island when it comes to communicable disease.

    Whattaboutism the military? Should they also not be given/mandated all these vaccines for stuff like anthrax before deployment/activation? Nobody was whining about all the additional vaccines the military has been mandated since... forever. Now all of a sudden it's all a huge violation of muh freedumbs? Support our troops doesn't gel well with sending them in to harm's way unprotected from these threats including COVID.. And stuff like the anthrax vax was also brand new when mandated for them so don't go there with untested or whatever..

    Komrade DDD, do they also vax military and school kids in your motherland Russia?

    Get ready for measles, polio, etc make big comebacks in the USA. There are plenty of folks ready to make that the next battle. (State Senator Richard Pan who sponsored the no-exceptions school vaccine law in CA has been physically assaulted and repeatedly harassed, and that was before MAGA and Covid.)
