I wonder how many people will be anti-vax on this one.
 
2022-09-09 2:19:00 PM  
Sadly, certain demographic groups put a low emphasis on vaccines.

The people who want to destroy democracy in America are also the same people who refuse to get vaccinated against things like polio.
I have mixed feelings about saving conservatives from themselves.

Those vaccination rates indicate a lot of them are already firmly in that camp.

Polio spreads between people when the virus enters the mouth, typically through hands contaminated with the stool of an infected person.

Can we blame the ass-eating millennials yet?

A large percentage of the US population are complete farking morons.

More than likely it will be traced back to those litter boxes in the school bathrooms. Damn libs are going to destroy us all with this stuff, while blaming us purebloods for not getting the jab.

Do you have mixed feelings about how batshyt crazy somebody like me will act if my childhood polio vaccines fail me or worse a child in my family is infected before s/he is old enough to be vaccinated? Do you have mixed feelings about that?

But really, this is going to come back to the Hasids and ultra Orthodox.  Was there recently a big pilgrimage back to Israel, where they brought it home?

Plenty.

The Facebook moms, faith healers, 5-G microchip conspiracy believers, essential oils crowds and others have formed a monolithic voltron of assholes, ready to cast doubt, backbite, and scream about vaccines no matter what.

And because of how diseases work you can't just sit back and let them eat shiat, because then perfectly normal people who can't get the vaccine for whatever reason suffer.

Can't wait for the people who go "I thought polio put you in an iron lung all I got was the shiats?? WHAT ELSE ARE THEY LYING TO US ABOUT?!"

I love watching people desperately trying not to appear racist by dancing around the subject. I'm Jewish so I'll say it: There is a huge problem with the ultra insular orthodox Jews who live in locations like Kiryat Yoel visavis vaccinations. We have our own nuts, sorry.
 
2022-09-09 2:30:29 PM  
I have no idea whether I was ever vaccinated for polio.  Sounds like it might be wise for me to get vaccinated anyway.

Though I'm in California.

Good point. Why can't we make kids use colostomy bags to prevent all of this? It was ok for the libs to make them wear masks.

Worse than that, diseases mutate and become resistant to the current vaccine.

Don't care. Staying home.

Going to avoid monkeypox, polio, and whatever else morons decide to incubate, in the same way I avoided COVID-19. And for the same farking reasons.

When covid vaccines first hit wide distribution I was having a hard time finding one. Finally I looked at the Walmart in Monroe and they had open slots all day every day because there was such low demand from the main local customer base at Kiryas Joel.

I don't know about that. I know a couple who are complete covid deniers. They've both had it twice. He almost died the first time.  They still say it's a hoax.

In other words, these people are so f*cking stubborn, I don't think it's possible for them to change their minds even when the evidence is right before their eyes. Even when the evidence is themselves.

I received the original polio vaccine when it first came out, and to this day I remember how happy my mother was when I got it. She was a nurse and had actually seen polio up close and personal.

Nope it was common in the first days of polio. It should have been obvious sarcasm to anyone most anyone.

I tried to get a vax record from the California Immunization Registry and was referred to the county where I grew up. I'll follow up on that soon.  I'm early old so I am not surprised CAIR didn't have it.

I'm pretty sure all my friends and me were completely vaccinated because we could not go to school if we weren't.  And polio was a big one to my mom as one of my uncles contracted it after the war. It rendered him paraplegic and ended his Army career.  And my dad's dad had polio, too, that affected his gait a bit.

A vaccine-dosed sugar cube is a distinct & remote memory.

nobody "dies" from polio, it's just a minor inconvenience.

Sure, they might suffer paralysis, sure, they might be a useless cripple confined to an iron lung, but hey, they are alive.

no need to inconvenience the rest of us, it's a risk I am willing to take. time to buy stock in iron lungs, cripple braces, etc.
