Don't care if they lie.

The chance of them giving it to me (who has been vaccinated) are tiny.

The chances of them giving to each other, who aren't? High.

It is literally best of both worlds in my view. Let the dumb infect themselves.

Of all the shiat I can get there (food poisoning, meningitis, herpes) COVID is the least of my worries.

I was at a national park last week.
The visitor centers required masks unless you have been fully vaccinated.
Maybe, MAYBE 10% of kids under 12 were wearing masks.
Only a handful of adults were wearing masks.

That's not how science works.  If the existing vaccines are ineffective against new variants, a booster would do nothing.  You'd need a new vaccine.  The way to end the virus and eliminate future variants is to eliminate its incubators.

See, what I really care about is that spike protein it uses to infect. That's what my immune system is primed for. If it changes enough, it can't infect me. Then I don't care about it at all. Doubtlessly, that's happened, and the virus promptly died because it couldn't reproduce. Damn.

What I care about is a VERY narrow window - it changes enough that my vaccinated immune system goes 'Hmm....you're just fine, buddy!" and yet can still infect cells.

And a follow on booster can be created to cover that small case. "Hey, immune system, beat up this cousin too!"

There's a reason the CDC has been calling this case a "booster" and not "a new vaccine." and what your words are saying is "I cannot refute your basic point so I'm going to nitpick the language the CDC is using."

We should have made an effort to be more like a civilized nation years ago. We'll have the virus circulating in our tribal regions forever, just like in any other incompletely developed nation.

Fortunately, the vaccines protect against a lot of variants, and more generalized vaccines will cover even more, so the antivax yahoos will mostly just kill each other.
 
2021-06-15 3:43:15 PM  
Vaccines should come with a barcode tattoo or an RFID chip implanted under the skin.  And ALL business should be required to have scanners for each and ONLY allow vaccinated people to participate in the economy, or in even getting food or electrcity or having their children educated.  With punishments for forging a tattoo or stealing and RFID chip being public execution via slow dismemberment and auto cannibalism.

Problem solved.

I don't think you understand what a vaccine booster is.  A booster is an additional dose of the original vaccine.  The potential need for a booster is not to protect against new variants.  It's purpose is to boost the effect of the initial vaccine if its effectiveness wanes over time.  If a new variant arises that is not stopped by the original vaccine, a booster will not change that.

One: Obviously, be vaccinated. That's 95% of the battle.

Two: Most of the time, you're outside under a bright sun, read, UV source.

Three: Wash your hands often. Because colds are still a thing. :-)

Four: Pay attention a bit and you can spot most of the anti-vaxxers. Just keep away from them.

Five: Every pool has a bar. That's not really helpful with COVID-19, that's helpful with "family WDW trips" in general.

The real question is kids. Right now, if you're under 12, you're unvaccinated. While it is true that very few children have gotten severely sick from COVID-19, very few is not zero, and your children are the most effective vector to you there is, because they're not going to stay six feet away from you, no matter how hard you wish for that. Studies testing both efficacy and dosing are in progress, hopefully we can vaccinate the little ones and be done, but for now, we can't.

Fortunately from an epidemiology perspective (but unfortunately for an overall state-of-society one), the youngest member of the group I'll be attending with just turned 23. We are all vaccinated and mostly not idiots except in, evidently, the very specific ways that have led to us planning a trip to an amusement park in Florida at what we're all hoping will be the tail end of a pandemic.

The only 100% sure way is full lockdown eforced by the military.  The antivaxxers are entrenched.  They look like us.  Two legs, two arms (usually) and one head unit.  The only difference is they don't wear masks.  Full martial law enforced lowdown is the only way to make sure the current variant doesn't spread.  And if there are variants we don't  know about, we will have to reset the timeline.  We can't wash our hands out of this.  The antivaxxers are working on mutations to bypass our defenses as we speak (type).  Eventually they will find a variant that can defeat our defences.  Our ONLY hope is to take out all the virus manufacturing facilities at once.  I prefer forced vaccination of the enemy, turning them into us, but nuclear strikes are an option, with the military taking out sleeper cells in pro vaxx territory that cannot be nuked efficiently.

I have a colleague like this. Intermittently masking before, but 100 % masking since the proliferation of the vaccine. Says he doesn't want to get it because of process and development worries.

OK, whatever, but how long are you going to keep wearing a mask? Forever? Just hold out as the last covid-concerned unvaxxed person on earth?

We have been told by credible sources the vaccine is doing its job. So no, I'm no longer wearing a mask, after having done so assiduously for 14 months. If those credible sources say to start wearing them again, I will.

Have the military put snipers in all the buildings taking out all the unmasked.  For the people that cannot wear masks for medical reasons, have them stay in their homes, and have the community deliver food to them.  But in a post corona world, do we really need people who cannot wear masks?  Mask show the rest of us what side you are on.  And the war is coming.  The humans vs the unmasked corona zombies.  War is ugly and some humans might get hurt by accident if they don't have masks on.

Mask enforcement somewhat worked in my town when it was a thing. Big box stores were a toss up, you could go in without question if you wanted to and no one would say anything so it was a 50/50 mix but still fairly quiet while shopping. After the CDC guidance on masks went out the window and stores started posting mask optional for vaxxed people - everyone came out to be anywhere without one.

/my mid MO county pop is vaxxed at ~27%
//if you are lucky you might see a couple other people still wearing a mask while shopping and such
///I feel less comfortable shopping now than I did at any time during the pandemic. 🤣

Have the military enforce the mask rules on themselves.  They have the firepower.  Have the president tell the military that all members must wear masks, and have Biden declare war in the virus.  He or she is the commander in chief.  If they don't, they are disobeying a direct order in a time of war.  There are consequences.

Problem solved.

People have been lying about being vaccinated for weeks and not wearing masks or social distancing CASES ARE STILL ROCK BOTTOM.

No matter howb much Fark was hoping amd praying thst places that opened up would have massive waves of death, it's just not happening.

It really is hilarious how Texas's cases have done nothing but drop since they opened up back in March while Farkers screamed at the top of their lungs.
