He said that he isn't "sold on the vax" yet, and that he's "waiting for the best one to arrive."

Turns out beggars can be choosers.

wait, someone who has spent 20+ years beating the shiat out of people, and having them beat the shiat out of him, is not ready to embrace modern vaccination science? he's not secretly highly educated, open minded, and ready to take the advice of respected doctors?

The problem is that the lesson you learn from a vaccine - you don't get sick - is the absence of something. We all grew up with the MMA vaccine and the polio vaccine and we didn't get those diseases, so we have no idea how bad they really are. So now comes along a new disease people haven't ever had but people (especially older people) have no comparison for how bad it can really be. Sure, they should be reading the news and looking at the numbers, but that's in the abstract for some people. And those are the people who are going to die.

We may end up more intelligent as a species before this thing is over.

you must mean "especially younger people".

old people remember farking polio! here in SW FL even the most trump-loving idiots are ALL vaxxed if the are 70+ years of age.

young people (born 1995 or later) have never even known anybody with chicken pox. because we vaxx for that now.

we vaxx for ALL these things now:

and it's simply time to add covid to the list.

i'm 41 and had childhood chicken pox, but no one i knew was killed or hospitalized by it. i lost a friend in high school to a rare form of meningitis he contracted on a family vacation out of the country. he was 17 and his death was shocking. after that i would go on to lose people to drug ODs, but not to communicable diseases.

pretty much the only people living in america who remember scary endemic communicable diseases are those who remember living in the aids crisis, and those who remember polio. there are some exceptions for people who emigrated here from a place without widespread vaccinations.

and that's probably why so many are complacent about -or simply against- vaccines, they've never experienced an unvaccinated world to be afraid of before. that's how jenny mccarthy was able to convince young moms not to give their babies the MMR series, they'd never seen anyone hospitalized with measles, so they just don't believe it's possible to catch something deadly in america. ☹

Huh. I didn't realize there was an MMA vaccine on the market. I had tried using home remedies like a TV remote, but Seth Rogan keeps getting around my defenses and sneaking into my Twitter feed.

I'm 59, and while I don't remember polio, my mom had polio as a child.  Stunted her growth.  As a result there is no vax hesitancy in my family.

My mom is 75.  She remembers someone she she knew dying of measles and another of polio.  They got their polio vaccines in school.

This is, of course, the big issue we've faced with ALL the Covid precautions we've taken. If they're effective, they're always going to feel like we didn't need to do anything because being effective means nothing happened - or rather, it will appear as it nothing happened.

I have thousands and thousands prayers messages to read while I'm in the hospital again!! very inspirational!!

You know what's even better than that? Not being in the fscking hospital.

I'm receiving churches, families and just a lot of great people putting me in their hearts and taking it to god the father

The same god that you prayed to last time, but find yourself back in the hospital?
 
2021-11-28 9:08:31 PM  
But wait, there's more! Much, much more!! If you vax now, you will receive, for a limited time, one (1) authentic NFT of you getting your shot, five (5) passes to the Zoom meeting of your choice, AND a complimentary pair of oversized gucci-edition Dr. Fauci glasses (limited quantity, first come first serve), PLUS a lifetime supply of 10% off coupons for Ivermectin paste, redeemable at any PetSmart nationwide. So, how 'bout it, Diego, how 'bout it now? Hmmm?

Doesn't really matter now, does it?

He already has Covid, so a vaccine would at  best do nothing.

If he survives, he'll have the anti-bodies, which is still not as good as the vaccine, to probably be OK to go another round with Covid.

Though with lung damage, I guess his UFC career is over, though the article alludes to it being anyway.
