I look forward to work sucking even more.  On the plus side, the company's website thinks we're a Moderna store, so people won't be able to make Pfizer appointments.  We'll be more than busy enough with our Moderna boosters, flu shots, shingles, pneumonia, TDap, and the poor saps going into the military and getting 4-6 shots at once.

For Fark's sake they can't release it fast enough.

By asking for four more months of safety data, Biden and his administration have sacrificed kids for the optics of "We're going to protect kids from adverse reactions.", rather than the actual good of protecting as many kids as possible.  It's bullshiat that we've spent all Summer, and now will have to wait until after Thanksgiving and Hanukkah before we can breath a sigh or relief and feel comfortable when we send our daughter to school, and let our daughter play with friends.

There should be an investigation into why this took so freaking long.

According to the FB comments on the local news channel, the kids will all be getting myocarditis and the deaths will be swept under the rug.  The powers that be were probably trying to study the right dosing so that doesn't happen.

Because kids aren't short adults. You can't just eyeball half a shot for them and figure "that won't hurt them." Same reason you don't give adult strength Tylenol to a 4-year old.

But then it goes to the CDC, then back to the FDA. It's farking stupid that every tiny bit the gov't does is being announced, since I'll probably piss off 20 people tomorrow when I tell them we can't do that (yet). Every time anything is in the news, people rush to the pharmacy. Or the idiots dig their heels in against the shot harder and buy some iodine to nebulize.

That's not quit what they said. The myocarditis thing is real. So far the most vulnerable group was young males in the 12-17 age bracket. It was necessary to figure out of that trend expanded to be even worse for yet younger kids. The side-effect is rare enough that they needed more in the study group to have a reasonable chance to detect it.

And then, the rate of infections in the whole group is rather low, meaning even in the placebo group. The kids just aren't coming down with covid at anything like the frequency that older people do. The American Academy of Pediatrics cite concerns about the rise of Delta and the surge as reasons to relook at the risk-benefit analysis. Well that makes sense if the younger group is getting sick at the same rate, but they aren't. And that fact goes into the risk-benefit analysis too.

Subby jokes, but I remember the polio vaccine in a sugar cube instead of a shot. Imagine the relief of several dozen grammar school children given a sugar cube instead of the expected needle in the arm for.  It simplified administering the polio vaccine by a huge amount.

And a message to the coviidiots.  As children, we lined up by the scores to get vaccinated at the school, because even as a small children, we weren't as big of pussies as you shiat-streams.

Because these vaccines are completely untested except for extensive trials with thousands of subjects and hundreds of peer-reviewed studies demonstrating their efficacy. And how many shots have been administered? A paltry five billion? We just don't know enough about this thing to start jabbing our kids willy-nilly.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Facebook clearly planning to change its name to "As A Mom I Did My Own Research"


Well, as an early 40's former friend said when her first son was two;

"I'm the MOTHER of a small child. I know everything I need to know about how to raise a child and YOU DON'T"

Said at midnight while two year old was throwing things, hitting dad, hitting me, screaming bloody murder. After I dare to innocently say "Why don't you just put him to bed?"

The following Monday morning the dad calls me at work and the first words out of his mouth were to complain that he was late for work because his kid wouldn't go to bed.

Last I heard of them (indirectly), she was a hardcore Trumpy.

I'm kind of doubting that she's vaxxed.

And pretty glad I don't know them anymore.

As a parent I did my own research.
Learned how a cell works.
Learned how mRNA works in the cell.
Learned how they get the mRNA into the cell.
Learned what else they use in the vaccine besides mRNA.

I think people who are afraid don't know how to learn.

dyhchong: I wonder if mRNA could survive the digestive system. If it could, it should be small enough to be absorbed into the body.

Neither of those would work.  mRNA is only stable at body temperature for very short periods of time (i.e. the time it takes to travel between two of a cell's organelles).  That is why the mRNA-based vaccines need to be kept at such extreme low temperatures until shortly before injection.

And even if the mRNA could survive long enough in the form of a nasal spray or sugar pill, there are other lines of defense in the nose and the digestive system that would prevent it from being absorbed into your cells.  It would likely be stopped cold by any mucus lining, for example.

Additionally, they said it in late August. So they said it a whopping 50ish days ago. Let's not act like they said it back in May.
