To Covid or not to Covid
« on: May 03, 2021, 04:27:42 PM »
I got my shot back in February... because I am considered to be part of the first responder group. Recently, the vaccine requirements for my state was lowered to anyone over 16, as I am sure most states are in now. However, I have a few distance relatives who refuses to get it. I am not sure if they were serious or just joking, I don't joke about stuff like this and they weren't the sort of people I want a debate with, so I did not press them.

Question to the rest of you... honest answers please... are you getting it or have you? If not, why not.

I received both of my shots.

I'm pretty direct. Even if you're family, I'll minimize contact until I feel safe around you.

I got my covid shots already and because of that I do have more peace of mind venturing out.  Even if a person gets covid, after getting vaccinated, chance of hospitalizatio n/death is low compare to not getting vaccinated.  Research shows they're safe and working. 

Sharing a link vaccines experts share their thoughts on covid vaccines and hopefully will help you help your distant relatives:

First shot on dec 31st 2020, second end of january.  I'm still alive and well.  All my people getting the shots. 

Would love to be in your situation with a few family member who are anti vax.  When they get covid, I'll milk that 2021 covid supplement of 80hrs by staying home and caring for them but really now, I'll be on vacation.  No need to show proof cuz that's medical record and can't share that info. 

A few of my hmong friends already did the fake covid scandal just to milk that 80 hours.  Use it or lose it.

Now my question is this.  How long are we full vaccinated folks are good for?  Medication wearing off.  We need booster or re shoot me again.  I want to feel free and liberated around people once again.  Still taking precautions by masking up and washing my hands though, keeping my distance.  Only thing that we took risk for risky business is friends and family social gathering cuz no one mask in this one.

So you're saying Covid is not a hoax anymore? Hmm..

I'm giving it a few more months since the survival rate for most people is at 99%.

I haven't gotten it yet.

To be honest, I'm not in a big rush to get it yet because I don't know if I really trust that the vaccine was fully tested.

I'll probably get vaccinated by the end of the summer though. We'll see.

You mean to vaccinate or not to vaccinate? Because with covid you have no choice but with a vaccine you do. I don't know why people are reluctant. All covid vaccines use a method (mRNA) that has never been done before and it has not been approved by the FDA because we've never been in this situation before. People who are immune compromise or live with multigeneratio nal household yet still refuses to get vaccinated is beyond me. Everyone I know has had at least one dose or is already fully vaccinated. The people that are the loudest at wanting us to get back to "normal" are also the people refusing to do the least to help get us there (vaccines, masks, social distancing..).

Here are some videos people might find helpful:
https://youtu.be/K3odScka55A (vaccine efficacy rate)
https://youtu.be/mvA9gs5gxNY (how mRNA works)

People should do what they think is best for them... but also, science, ya' know.

Trump was an idiot.

You're correct, for the young and healthy. But I have elderly relatives who are not in very good health  and it's for their welfare that I am also doing this. They are precious to me.

It's a very personal decision and I respect yours... However, there are many agency and regulations to safeguard our health in this country.

I have a cousin who's in the hospital right now with COVID.  She's in the ICU and  there's nothing the doctors can do but check her oxygen levels and keep her on the ventilator.  It's very serious and we're just praying that she pulls through some how.  I'd recommend you take the vaccine.  It's better than the alternative.
