Are you fully vaccinated against COVID-19 yet? And if not, why the fuck not?
Yes, we are. All three of us. Owen and Garry got Pfizer and I got Moderna. We got them as early as we could, which was a great relief. I think Melanie answered this one very well, so I encourage you to read her post:
Honestly, I don’t have much more to say about this. I’ve gone on and on about it. I think it’s fantastic that pharma for once did what they should do and got us the vaccine ready to go — and into our arms as fast as they did. This might be the only commendable thing Trump did. Of course, having done it, he then discouraged people from actually getting the vaccine, which I find beyond baffling.
Don’t Republicans want living people to vote for them?
The stupidity and insanity surrounding us? I actually never imagined this country could possibly be this dumb. I’m also blown away by the originality and complexity of current conspiracy theories. How they even managed to create these ridiculous and wildly complicated theories when a simple, factual answer tells the whole story — I mean, isn’t the simple answer usually the right one?
I don’t get it. Politics and all other non-medical issues aside, keeping people alive ought to be the only thing that matters. We’ve had MILLIONS of people die from this disease. I haven’t heard of hundred or thousands of deaths from vaccinations. Actually, I think I’ve heard about maybe half a dozen and that would be worldwide.
I talked a doctor yesterday about the likelihood of needing to get an annual “booster” for COVID-19. It would be like a flu shot. COVID-19 is related to the flu. It sort of is the flu in a super-duper kind of way. So I said “wouldn’t it be great if they could package it into ONE shot.”
Flu is one of many COVID diseases along with head-colds and every version of the flu. I think flu was the original when it popped up in 1918. One maxi shot could maybe give us a couple of bad days, but at least we’d be fully vaccinated for a year.
I’m baffled by our national level of idiocy. And wouldn’t you think Republicans would want to keep their voters alive? Dead ones have a poor record at the polls.
