@Zeldafan79 You’re evil overlords want to get enough people vaccinated so that they can open up without the health care system collapsing. Once they can do that they aren’t going to care if the remaining unvaccinated population gets cut to ribbons. I really wouldn’t want to go into the next winter unvaccinated.

@Zeldafan79 Have you even read the article? Cause of death has yet to be determined, but he had an enlarged heart and fluid in his pericardial cavity. You don't get that from the vaccine. These all point to an underlying condition, and as sad as it is, he probably would've died regardless of getting vaccinated or not.

People die every day (around 150,000), and some die very young. That's unfortunate. But when you vaccinate everyone, it's only logical that some die after getting a jab. That doesn't mean they die from the vaccination, but it's just logical statistics. And when millions billions of people are getting vaccinated, it's only logical stories like these pop up. You know what would be strange? If nobody died this year after getting vaccinated.

Anyway, my test results are negative, which is a good thing. Still don't feel any better though, but at least it's not COVID.

@Octane good news! Where I am in UK some other upper respiratory infections other than covid have been hitting people hard as things reopen. Could see test for covid being a broader panel to help tease out what they have been infected with. Hope you get better soon

@Th3solution I've read mixed things on a "booster" jab. Some pieces have said that the vaccines offer good lifelong immunity but other places have said the government here are preparing boosters for the Autumn.

I'll be more than happy to have one though and do wonder if it will become a regular thing life the flu jab.

@Th3solution I think in the UK, the third jab is only for the over 70's? So I don't think it as bad as it first sounds.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

@JohnnyShoulder @Thrillho That might make sense (the seniors being the targets for a booster) as a public health approach. I guess we’ll find out as they do the experiments on whether it’s even necessary. In my observation, it seems the senior citizens are much more acceptable to vaccines than the younger population anyways. There’s not a lot of 70 year old anti-vaxers running around it seems. And when there are, it’s probably because their kids or grandkids show them a Tik Tok video of a rant with a bunch of nonsense taken out of context.

From a recent Guardian article;

The JCVI recommends that if a Covid booster programme goes ahead, then stage one should offer a third dose to:

Adults aged 16 years and over who are immunosuppressed.
Those living in residential care homes for older adults.
All adults aged 70 years or over.
Adults aged 16 years and over who are considered clinically extremely vulnerable.
Frontline health and social care workers.

Stage 2 would offer a third dose to:

All adults aged 50 years and over.
All adults aged 16 to 49 years who are in an at-risk group for flu or Covid.
Adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals.

So quite a cohort!

@Zeldafan79 "nazi regime"

I guess you weren't there in the forties. If the Nazis had only made their people watch mouth masks, we wouldn't still be talking about them.

So funny story...

I'm in Oklahoma now and have pretty much stopped wearing a mask entirely because it's like wearing a scarlet letter but I'm in this tiny, very locally owned furniture store the other day to buy a mattress and the salesman is openly carrying. I'm there with my grandmother, who literally has a bookshelf full of stuff like Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck and Joel Osteen, and for some reason she asks, somewhat scandalized, "Oh now why do you have a gun?" A question only an old lady can get away with but anyway he goes into this seemingly rehearsed, slightly indignant mini rant about how dangerous the world is, and he's got kids, and no matter what he plans to go home at night... blah blah blah.

I could hardly hold back laughter honestly. Here's a guy working in a furniture store in a town with a population below 30k who probably doesn't see but like 10 customers a day (it was completely empty the entire length of my visit) and he thinks he's gonna need to go all John McClane at work someday.

Now ask that same guy if he's vaccinated, or if he ever wears a mask. Or ever did.

I just don't get how people's perception of risk could be so skewed is really all I'm saying. Masks are super cheap now, vaccines are free, and firearms are neither. And while I imagine his risk of dying from Covid is relatively low, I can promise you his likelihood of dying in a mass shooting at his podunk furniture store is far lower. But where does he invest resources? A gun. Lol.

Like, why?

@zupertramp That's a great psychology study right there. Same for those saying they don't want to take the risk with the vaccine. I don't know how many people have already died of COVID, but the handful of people that died after getting the vaccine (which are yet to be linked to vaccine itself) is what worries them.
