I've noticed that the ones getting the most attention was in this pandemic are in this age group. I don't know if the media chose to focus on that age group or if most seniors are vaccinated.

We're staying home because we're not stupid enough to go out and try to catch a disease that could be deadly to anyone just because we're bored and restless at home.

You hit the nail on the head. Turns out people with jobs have to interact with people. Who knew? Besides the Fark I.T. brigade, who haven't left their house in 18 months. Naw, it must be all that partying.

/it probably is some of that partying

People older than 55 are more vulnerable but vaccinated.

People younger than 35 are stupider but less vulnerable.

48, vaccinated, and the primary source of income for my family of 5. I'm debating on getting a booster because I work in close proximity to international travelers. I know that I'll die someday, but I'm not ready to call it quits yet. Got too many things I still want to do or accomplish. I'm not even trying to tango with this virus. I've seen too many die already.

SomeAmerican: People older than 55 are more vulnerable but vaccinated.

That was true before vaccinations but it's changed now and is not true any more. People over 55 have taken vastly more precautions to avoid their risk that those under 55. Risk level is now lower in over-55 people.

I mean, the percentage of COVID deaths that are people under 35 is still extremely small.  The percent of all US COVID deaths from people 30-39 is right around 1.5%.  People 18-29 make up about 0.5% of the total deaths.

The reason that those deaths might make up a fairly large percentage of deaths in 35-54 is:

1) That's still a bit young to be dying from the usual non-COVID stuff (heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's, strokes).

2) The upper end of the 35-54 age bracket is getting old enough that COVID hit'em pretty hard, but its still a bit young for most of the other stuff

Obviously a lot of younger people should be a lot more careful about masking and vaccines.  But the statistics here don't really change any of the age based thinking going on here.  The main reason to worry about younger people and COVID is still that they are spreading it to others, not that they're dying en masse like older people did.

Don't debate, get it.


The debate is about when and where. My agency had things set up for our original shots where I didn't have to wait in line. Trying to see if they have the same set up for the boosters or whether I have to go to CVS or something. Once I get the logistics, then I'll get it.

I went cvs. Takes minutes to set up the appointment on their website.

According to the government vaccine site cvs takes walk-ins, but they don't accept phone calls to confirm so I just went ahead and made appointment. Snagged it and influenza together.

Yes, Darwin Awards were invented for exactly this purpose.

The vaccine has been available now for over 10 months. If you're not vaccinated, you may not deserve to die, but you don't deserve to live.

Also fwiw, not that I really support lying, but I didn't even get to the "I am allowed to get it cause I'm so special" part.

They are giving it for anyone who ever smoked, and a variety of other things. So anyone else thinking maybe they ought to but you might not meet criteria, it could be worth flipping through.

As someone in (33, but close enough) the article's age bracket, the secret is misanthropy.

"We need you to stay home and avoid interacting with other people during the pandemic."
"There's a pandemic?"

They (CVS etc) can't prove that you do not have an underlying medical condition if you say you have one. You don't have to go into detail in most places. Being overweight is a major risk factor for instance. Just get the booster, at this point there's plenty of vaccine.

2021-10-16 12:18:20 AM  
It's a per capita deal.   Old people still die from it, but many more old people are vaccinated and there are fewer of us, what with the dying and all.   Gen Xers are lagging behind in getting vaccinated and are trying to become extinct before the Boomers.   That's probably the right move too.

Of course they aren't going to require proof.

My point was the actual criteria they go by is far wider than the brief descriptions we usually see in news articles. And it isn't like, if the FDA didn't allow boosters for X, CVS would have X on their questionnaire.

To any who want to lie to get one, have it and that's your call. But many people no doubt meet the advisory criteria and think maybe they don't.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: This reminds me of my dad, who got upset over Black Lives Matter for not getting upset about black children getting shot in drive bys or some shiat. Fox Brain and the equivalent is a hell of a thing. Never about solving actual problems. "Why do we help immigrants when we don't help the homeless here?" "Do you want to help the homeless?" "No."


"Don't help immigrants or homeless people" is at least kind of a consistent philosophy.
