We've had real world results for well over half a year. We have arguably the largest natural experiment in human history and ... guess what? ... it works. Get the damn shot.

The molnupiravir has nasty side effects potential that was cited an an earlier fark thread (will try to find).

Namely it works by interfering with genetic replication (RNA based) and interfering with protein folding.

Maerck bought the original pharmaceutical that abandoned it cause of those side effects.

Yeah, this is the first experimental anti-covid drug that I immediately went "no farking way are you putting that in me unless I'm so sick I can't say no." We do need an alternative to injecting antibodies - as studies have found that antibody cocktails only really help patients whose immune system has failed to mount an antibody response in the first place - but an rna-corrupting drug is not the one I want.

So given their perfectly r[edacted] track record... I'm confident that we'll be seeing antivaxers huffing mutagens before halloween.

I agree, we only eliminated smallpox and polio by thoroughly vetting those vaccines far more than today's  risky "experimental" vaccines. The scientific rigors of phase 3 trials in the 1840s were much more stringent than the lackadaisical protocols those loafers follow today. Pfizer doesn't even let you see the cow before they shove its raw pus into your bloodstream using an unwashed needle.

Works better if you change "interfering with genetic replication" to "Promotes mutations during RNA polymerase action". (It's a cytidine analog that gets incorporated into the viral RNA which then can't be read correctly)

In other words, the wonder drug that will save them from having to take a vaccine that can somehow magically mutate their DNA is one that itself specifically promotes mutations.  But that's good, because it only does that for viruses.  Probably.  I mean, just because the head of BARDA filed a whistleblower complaint about it showing mutagenic activity in animal assays is no reason to be concerned.[1]

However, they can't say anything too evil about the maker of molnupiravir since that's Merck, who also makes....Ivermectin!

[1]. It probably isn't dangerous in all honesty- some of the low level tests showed possible mutagenic activity, but the more sophisticated ones don't at the doses we're using.

About 10% of COVID cases had a seriously negative outcome ranging from a week in the hospital, brain, heart, or lung damage, or death.

I don't know about you, but when learning loss of smell is pretty common it gives me pause. Imagine not being able to smell your favorite things ever again - foods, Xmas trees, perfume.  Or, for a bunch of people you smell rotting stink, instead

Meanwhile the vaccines are basically risk free and the only real unknowns about how long efficacy lasts (stats seem to show noticeable reductions after 5 months).

It's typical for FDA to require 12 month safety data before approving a new drug. We didn't have that when the vaccines were first authorized, we do have it now.


This.

I think the metaphor now is more like "Hey everyone, I just invented the helicopter, 190 million people have already flown to safely on it, and the alternative is to stay here on your roof and hope the flood waters don't overtake your house.

But if you don't want a ride, I'm sure you have your reasons, reasons that frankly don't make any sense to anyone"

The anti-vaxxers dashed across the line between skepticism and thickheaded contrarian insanity right from the very start. They won't take any of the extensively tested shots, copious medical data on all of which can be easily researched online, but hand them literally any other mystery snake oil and they won't just take it, but will aggressively champion it.

"I will never take the shot! The shots cannot be trusted! Our precious bodily fluids must remain pure!"

"That's cool I guess. Hey, check out this weird green cube I found behind a toilet in the subway bathroom."

"Aha, toilets don't catch Covid! That must be the real cure! I will eat that cube and gain eternal immunity!"

"Ooh, maybe you shouldn't have swallowed that, man. I just looked it up on my phone and I think it might have been rat poison."

"Vomiting... blood! Muscles.. starting to spasm! This must be the Covid leaving my body! Quick, hit send on my post for me so everyone on Facebook can know I've found the answer!"

I stand corrected.

I am trying (while at work in finest of fark traditions) to find my source about the protein folding issue.  That can cause all sorts of problems.  Proteins regulate alot and act as catalysts for chemical reactions in the body.

Bad folds in proteins are the leading causes for many cystic-fibrosis and prion issues.

You're not wrong- the mutations the bad RNA introduces do affect the folding of various enzymes which is why it works as well as it does.

I just really like the paranoia surrounding the vaccine contrasted to the "I'll stick anything else whatsoever in my body no matter what because vaccines are soooo dangerous"

And ivermectin?  The mechanism is sorta similar to nerve gases in humans- it opens a channel in neurons and doesn't let it close again, so nervous signals don't get through and the worm gets paralyzed.   But gobble your horse paste- it's completely harmless!  (And actually is in humans as far as this mode of action, but I like the idea that people never think about how it actually works)

The molnupiravir has nasty side effects potential that was cited an an earlier fark thread (will try to find).

Namely it works by interfering with genetic replication (RNA based) and interfering with protein folding.

Maerck bought the original pharmaceutical that abandoned it cause of those side effects.

Yeah, this is the first experimental anti-covid drug that I immediately went "no farking way are you putting that in me unless I'm so sick I can't say no." We do need an alternative to injecting antibodies - as studies have found that antibody cocktails only really help patients whose immune system has failed to mount an antibody response in the first place - but an rna-corrupting drug is not the one I want.

So given their perfectly r[edacted] track record... I'm confident that we'll be seeing antivaxers huffing mutagens before halloween.

These things are absolutely, positively, nothing what so ever alike. And you're not dumb enough to pretend to not know that.
