    Triple jabbed, but still wear a mask because I work in healthcare (AFC home), so does my roommate (patient transport- pushes wheelchairs and stretchers around a hospital).

    Girlfriend and I do as well...no kid but parents have risks despite being jabbed.

    We should have seen a vast improvement in all cause mortality in 2021 versus 2020. Instead they are the same.
    I'll give you a hint, there are more differences than just the one. Keep going, and maybe don't post again until you figure it out.

    I am triple jabbed, so I no longer wear a mask unless a particular business requires it and/or still posts "Please Wear a Mask" on the front door (only because I'm not an a55hole). As I see it, I have done my part and unless the next mutation substantially increases the odds of death, I'm not going to be a COVID worrywart. If you are eligible then get your shots or risk suffering the consequences of your actions, because I am no longer going to inconvenience myself or go out of my way to protect you.

    Really? I think that might cause a bit too much pain. It also would assume the impossible- that there was an ability to believe anything was different from 2019

    STUDY: From mid-January to the end of June 2021, 48% of all hospitalized COVID patients may have been admitted for another reason entirely, or had only a mild disease. Harvard, Tufts Medical Center, and the VA analyzed 50,000 COVID hospital admissions

    The double-vaccinated are almost twice as likely to be infected as unvaccinated people, data from Iceland shows. This is the same pattern as found in data from the U.K.

    Preprint. “Vaccine effectiveness against Omicron was 37% (95%CI, 19-50%) ≥7 days after receiving an mRNA vaccine for the third dose.”

    The Point:
    A rational person can make a rational decision that getting an influenza vaccination is not of enough significant benefit to them that they choose not to receive one. Despite all the differences between the viruses and their vaccines (lethality,morbidity, efficacy, SE, etc.), the same can be said about COVID-19 (albeit to a much less extent).

    The Hypocrisy:
    I think that it's hypocritical to castigate/blame/preach at someone who made a similar choice not to get vaccinated for virus X when the castigator/blamer/preacher made the same choice with virus Y. YMMV

    Please note that nothing I have said is concerning the spread of misinformation or making this a political issue. Those people, like DipShlt2020, deserve everything that can be thrown at them.



    This is fantastic. I will be plagiarizing this in the future.

    This is more words than I've posted in the past year. Back to lurking. Closing Remark:
    GET VACCINATED!
    Both would be better but some is better than none. Preventing just one viral pneumonia (of either type) frees up a bed that, despite what DipShlt2020 thinks, are currently in very short supply.
    Healthy people aren’t at risk, healthy people don’t take up hospital beds.

    If you are fat/obese like 60% of Americans or have 4-6 comorbidities of Americans then yes you should probably consider the vaccine. And if you actually cared about yourself and others you would make an effort to improve your health.

    The best reading of this I've found is to think of viral mutations as a car, filled with people. In this car, the infectiousness is the driver. Period. Anything else is a passenger. Now, passengers can affect the driver. Crazy high severity/lethality will negatively impact spread (a dead person will infect fewer others than a live person). But pure Darwinism says that all other factors come for the ride, have a bit of a say in the destination, but the infectiousness is, in the end, the driver. As you mention, the sole purpose of a virus is to make more of itself (hey... that kind of sounds like...)
