No, they just want to see more data. (n=25B)

ADULTS.

If you count American children under 12 who cannot get vaxxed, you would have a different result. Vaxxed adults are waiting to vax their kiddos.

INb4 trolls show up with free republic memes claiming it's athiests not vaccinating and all the christians are actually chompin' at the bit to get vaxxed (now that they've been instructed by their masters to do so).

A fair distinction.

Yeah.... no. It would be nice if it was that simple, but but vaccines don't work that way.
 
2021-07-25 4:32:46 AM  
And enough of these people will survive their stupidity to keep the variants coming.

We're never going to be rid of this.
 
2021-07-25 4:33:39 AM  
That's not much better in France. Vaccination rates have reach a ceiling, and no we've got protests akin to the Gilet Jaune phenomena. The far right has tried to insert themselves in the current. And now, of course, we've reached the point where the worst of the worst are attacking vaccination centers. There hasn't been any death... yet.

I can't wait till they declare double yellow lines in the road to be exempt for religious reasons.

Ok, then they can get COVID.

Well the survivors are still getting the antibodies.  They've just chosen an alternate delivery method.  Not the method I chose, but to each their own.

They're just interested in creating enough variants in order to learn the entire Greek alphabet.

Fine.

They don't want to go to restaurants, movies, sports, town halls, or any mass gathering either, I guess.

bribe some officials in Somalia and sign them a check for everybody that gets deported there.

make citizenship conditional on vacination status.

deport all unvacinated to Somalia permanently.
 
2021-07-25 4:51:28 AM  
Can't we just shoot them then?

In a few years we're going to have an annual corona virus booster shot, akin to our flu jab. This is THE CURE FOR THE COMMON COLD! As well as any new dangerous varieties that come up.

Highly variegated viruses have turned out to be the last section of general public health efforts. I don't know if it's good or bad to get them under control, we might be creating a niche for rogue variants, but I doubt it.

Could we legalize dart guns and turn vaccine delivery into a sport? Maybe give these "God, guns, gtfo" GQP folks a new game show: they are escorted to an island, they have a dart gun and some vax doses, and the last one who hasn't gotten shot wins a prize. Hell, if we could get them going in groups of 50 to 100 per match, maybe we coild give them an actual prize, their own AR dart gun or a million dollars.

/give them a million
//let them do their own taxes

Well vaccinated Americans need to come together and loudly exclaim that we don't want plague rats in our country.

Then we should construct a series of enormous trebuchets and launch those people who refuse the vaccine into the sea. Hell, it would probably only take a couple before the majority changed their tune.
 
2021-07-25 4:56:30 AM  
They should publicize a program to let people from "shiathole" countries like the one where I live (beautiful and not a shiathole-but definitely on a what they meant by that level) apply for their unused and unwanted vaccines.

I bet those 'mítica serie blood gets red real fast.

One of the new directions this has lead to is a norovirus vaccine. One of the bugs that kills infants and children every year, and we might be a year or two away from eliminating it completely as well.

Ten years ago we were laughing that sci-fi authors thought we could cure the common cold and prevent cancer. Instead we may be vaccinating against the cold and teaching our bodies how to kill cancer itself.

The same people say they doubt vaccines would work against the delta variant of COVID, despite evidence they do.

Do you really think "evidence" factors into this at all?
 
2021-07-25 5:08:13 AM  
I work with many of these people, and not all of them are Republicans, they're just not that bright.

One guy hates Trump with a passion, but when it comes to the vaccine his thinking is "it's too new, I'm not going to put my health at risk, if it ain't broke don't fix it, you know?"

Tonight, a woman told me "the thing about the vaccine is that whatever it puts into you, it just keeps growing and growing forever!"

"It hasn't really been that dangerous to people in my demographic, and I have a good immune system," said Johansen, a 26-year-old who installs audio-visual equipment at military bases.

Where do these people get their immune system ratings from? Do they take a swab from your mouth? Is it a blood test? Piss?

"Most of my friends got vaccinated, and they're a little mad at me for not getting it. There is peer pressure because they say it's a civic responsibility."

Well thank goodness this independent thinker knows that civic responsibility is for pussies.

Oh yeah, we already know one herpes vaccine could end certain cancers, but how many more are that easy. M-RNA vaccines might make it easy to knock out a bunch of viral cancerz.

Covid doesn't work that way either. But nobody has to bring it to them. The numbers show that they're perfectly capable of going out and finding Covid all on their own.

Here we have one of the participants in the earliest vaccine trial. As you can see, over a year later the effects of the vaccine have been shocking.

It feels like there are two Americas. Even moreso than the American/Republican divide. Kind of like a zombie thriller where you can't tell who's who until they start twitching and saying "brrrrraaaaaainzzzz."

It's not the antibodies you need except in the short term.   Without B and T cells to program the info into your immune system, and RETAIN that programming thos antibodies decline and disappear  over a short period of time and your immune system fforgets abouththem. Antibodies  are RAM but the other components are the long term storage.

y'All don't know this?
My physician who actually knows my case, NOT "Dr. Fouci" the "Dr Phil" of Viru-oliogie", has advised me to NOT get the Vaccine due to possible complications in MY personal circumstances.

i Have to get it now to work issues.

But WHO will be responsible if I Die or have medical issue due to getting the "forced" vaccination??

Please tell me this before you burn another city due to "Voices Not Being Heard"

No one will be responsible because no one's forcing you to get vaccinated. Or are you just going to force yourself to get it as part of some weird performance art?
