God these people are dumb.

But that's not enough. I fully suspect to see trump dummies fire-bombing or blockading whatever places are storing the vaccine.

Can we stop pretending they have ANY valid political ideas or grievances snd they really just want to induce/increase suffering of every human, especially Americans.

Also, f*ck them.

What I would be leery of is a vaccine that came out too soon. For example, if Vice President Mike Pence abruptly convened the White House Coronavirus Task Force in October and announced that you can all get your Covid-19 vaccines now, would you hesitate?

'Any' vaccine that shows up in less than a year from now I'd be highly suspect of/think it was rushed through for political rather than medical reasons.

I'm in no way, shape, or form an anti-vaxxer (flu shot every year, current on all others - I think, perhaps need a booster from a childhood shot lo those many decades ago), but there's also no way I'd be rushing to get this/a vaccine without waiting for a few months after it came out to see if those that did get it suddenly sprouted another arm or something (which might actually be useful for getting to that one spot in the middle of your back that you can't easily scratch...).

That's even a worse number than my family doctor suspects, and he's got a very dim view of humanity based on the 1/3 of people he sees who flat-out refuse a flu shot every year.

And, to echo farkers upthread on getting the vaccine:
The Oxford vaccine administered by a major hospital and available in, say, mid-January? I'll set up a tent and camp out. The more morons who want to skip it means shorter lines for me. Vaccines are real, vaccines work, and that's that.

The Jesus Freedom Eagle F-150 vaccine manufactured by Jared Kushner's frat buddies Chad, Tad & Skidmark's hedge fund and only available with purchase of a "Joe Biden Caused 9/11" hat while submitting your signed blank absentee ballot, and administered via red Solo cup at a Trump "Save the Columbus Statue" rally in October 2020? Yeah, I might let someone else go first.

Makes sense. The COVID vaccine is how the 5G towers know where to find you and beam the chem trails from George Soros's planes and the Microsoft mind control chips directly into your skull. Avoiding all vaccines and being sure to breathe pure oxygen, unfiltered by face masks, are the best methods of prevention.
 
2020-07-01 6:24:11 AM  
FFS. Make it mandatory. Or add a substantive tax for those that decline vaccination to encourage participation. Sorry, but if your population is too stupid to save itself such measures are needed for the hood of the rest of the world.

I am also not an anti-vaxxer (though I don't get the flu shot because "this year's flu shot didn't match this year's flu" seems to happen every year) but count me in this boat.  I have lots of family in the pharmaceutical industry and it takes a LONG time to get something to market for a reason.  If they do come out with it SUPER early, I am considering either delaying the whole family or at least my kids, lest it come out 6 months later that everyone that gets it has to have a hysterectomy or something.

If it comes out during this term expect Donnie to push his supporters to get it. They will then do an about face. He wants this "win". He's putting all his chips in that basket.
I'll wait for the next version.

Come up with a vaccine first.

If it's even possible.

F*cking reactionary clickbait.


"RNA viruses constitute an important threat to human health around the globe. Several RNA viruses are pandemic and infect hundreds of millions around the world leading to the death of millions of people every year. These viruses include the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), Ebola virus, Zika virus, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza viruses, yellow fever virus, dengue virus, rhinoviruses (common cold), human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-I), poliovirus, and measles virus. Currently, no vaccine or specific treatment is available for many of these viruses and some of the available vaccines and treatments are not highly effective." - https://www.hindawi.com/journals/jir/​2​018/5473678/

As a person with limited access to health care (small business employee in a red state with worthless ACA plans), I strongly suspect I'll either be priced out of access to such a vaccine in the short term or that supply will be limited to the essential and the wealthy anyway.
 
2020-07-01 6:47:49 AM  
I don't believe that one bit. A poll isn't exactly a scientific study. But hey, makes for a much scarier headline.

I'm 100% pro-vaccine.

Well, let me rephrase.

I'm 100% tested, effective, proven, well researched and thoroughly vetted vaccines that weren't developed during a dystopian nightmare.

I'mma let ya'll take this one first, wait a bit and see how you do.
 
2020-07-01 6:52:39 AM  
I will be shocked if Trump doesn't announce a vaccine in time for the election. There won't be one but he'll promise that there will be one arriving on November 5th.
 
2020-07-01 6:53:54 AM  
I'm sure the Liberal half of the anti vaxxers are going to just jump on it.

If the antibodies only last 3 months when you get it, you may need to get the vaccine 4 times a year to be fully covered.

I'll get it, but the people who need it more that I do can go first...
 
2020-07-01 6:54:29 AM  
Well, then.  When this all shakes out, maybe - one way or t'other - we'll be left with a population that believes in the efficacy of vaccinations!

After November 3rd, there is no political expediency in a vaccine for anyone.

Besides, it's not thalidomide. It's a vaccine. Vaccines generally have two side effects. A sore arm and a fever.  The worst thing about a new vaccine is that it might not be as effective as you'd like.

It won't matter.
There will be no vaccine for Covid 19.

That's because the really dangerous vaccines don't make it through testing. A botched vaccine is more than capable of killing you within minutes or giving you horrible lifelong side effects--like permanent narcolepsy.

A SARS-CoV-2 vaccine that's been adequately tested will be reasonably safe if not necessarily as effective as we'd all hope. A vaccine that's been rushed to give Trump a victory has no such guarantees and, especially after the bleach debacle, should be treated with extreme caution.

The flu vaccine builds on an established vaccine with an established manufacturing process.  They're not literally building it from scratch every year.  It's reasonably safe and has known side effects.   This is something very, very new and it's being built from the ground up in a very great hurry, during a time when there is a great deal of political pressure to be seen doing something, effective not.  It might work, it might not, and it might have dangerous side effects to boot.  A degree of caution is warranted.
 
2020-07-01 7:39:45 AM  
The way to win over the 50% that won't get the vaccine because ant-vaxx is to round those people up, build a wall around em, and use a dart gun with the vaccine loaded. I'd also accept darting them in general if you can't round them up proper. No point in coddling plague carriers.

WalkingSedgwick: A vaccine that's been rushed to give Trump a victory


Anything before November 3rd won't happen, so I'm not worried about having to make that choice.  January is still ambitious, and regardless who who wins or loses on November 3rd, the political expediency for Trump is over on November 4th.

Me, a 44 year-old guy with a normal BMI who works out every day and has low blood pressure, won't have any choice for over a year from now.  I'm near the end of the line.
