    • I have received first shot of a two shot vaccine.
    • I have not been vaccinated, but plan to be when it is available for me.
    • I am not planning on being vaccinated.

Polio actually had a very low mortality or and very low paralysis rate. Lower death rate than Covid. Don't know why we even bothered with a vaccine.   I hope you do well bob but a Corona  virus will mutate quickly.  The longer it stays widespread the more dangerous it becomes until it mutates into something that is far more deadly. Not getting this under control is simply Russian Roulette.

I took my kid to the doctor today in Costa Rica.   The office gives covid tests all day to USA tourists because you need a test to re enter the USA.  The doctors there... frontline... haven't been vaccinated yet.   I am surprised how easy it seems for you all.  The USA is truly blessed in many ways.

hmm rare to hear anyone who is a conservative and GOP say your body your choice.  Only in some cases though I guess

That is a huge stretch.

Yeah well 530k dead, 20% of the entire world’s dead, ain’t much of a blessing.

My wife got it because she was basically forced to. Got pressured into it. All but one pharmacist did not want to, but they all did. The owner smoked his whole life and is petrified of covid. 
 

so one person abuses his body his whole life then expects others to take basically an experimental vaccine so he can feel safe. What a country.

 

I know an OB who would not have taken the vaccine unless forced to by his employer. My brother who is a doctor same story. My dentist brother same story.

 

it’s a political issue imo. I don’t understand how the left thinks and you don’t understand me. Nothing new. Wash rinse repeat 

LOL, I don't believe you.

Those diseases impacted the weakest of the children and working age people. Interesting... once we started vaxing for polio, smallpox and measles and such, our country started getting weaker and older and more foreign and more decadent and more socialist. If it weren't for those vax's, we wouldn't have all these weak, sick people hanging around and taking stuff from the strong, healthy white people. 

You know, you might be on to something here with the Anti-Vax thing.

He may well be lying, but it is plausible. There is still a sizable contingent (30%) of healthcare workers that are resistant to being vaccinated.

Oh, yes I'm aware of that. I just think he is making up anecdotal examples of those because he has a rhetorical interest in it.

Actually, in modification of my earlier comment about Bob, college educated soccer moms, and Alex Jones types, the rejection in the medical professional community is the real head scratcher.  

I just got Pfizer stabbed, 5 minutes to go on my mandatory observation.  CVS was full, I went to CA State / Stanislaus County website, scheduled first appointment two days out.  Only minor criticism, it took 30 minutes to get in, it turns out it didn't matter if you had an appointment.  First come, first served.  I'm Retired, so it doesn't matter, but if I was working or other time crunch, it would have been more fair to process appointments first.  However, the more vaccinated, the better, so best not to complain.

(Edit) 47 minutes after my appointment time, as I left, there was only two people in line. Anyone else thinking about getting there early to avoid lines they want to reconsider, it may be quicker to just pick a mid-morning appointment.

Got 2nd dose of Pfizer last Tuesday as a National Defense worker. Kicked my ass for 48 hours but I feel fine now. Everyone I know who’s getting it who’s under 60 years old is feeling the 2nd dose pretty hard. Everyone I know who’s over 60 has said it was nothing.

That’s consistent with my parents, both in their 80s. They had both doses of the Moderna vaccine, no side effects at all. I have my second dose coming up on April 5th.

I’m curious what the future MIL’s second shot will be like (she’s 75).  She started off with a shot of Moderna, 3 martinis after the drive home and then a bottle of red wine night cap.

Younger folks have stronger immune systems and therefore have a bigger reaction to the booster. I am dreading the second shot.
