    It's their normal response... It's all or nothing for these people.
    Masks don't completely stop it? Don't wear them.
    Vaccine doesn't completely stop it? Don't get it.
    It didn't kill you? You're fine.
    It's how they think for some reason...it's never about diminishing effects or the efficacy of it it's all or nothing.
    I think there's a lot to this. My conservative family members have to have everything black and white. If there's nuance to something, no there isn't.

      Doesn't paxlovid carry some potentially very serious, albeit rare, side effects? Iirc, you can't have weak kidneys.
      I can't say, I have not materially looked into it.

        • We live in very stupid times.

          Nearly 40 percent of dog owners believe that canine vaccines are unsafe, with 37 percent believing that the vaccines could cause their dogs to develop autism, the study, published in the journal Vaccine, reveals.

            Well, I've seen some more stupid on my Cruising boards- there was some discussion about hygiene of other cruisers, and one person posted that we all need more germs. Sure, you *can* make yourself stronger if you are good at moderate germ intake- but that's kind of impossible to do. If you get norovirus on a ship, there's almost no way you are going to avoid having serious digestive problems in the short term. And how many people have died from viruses? Like all of them, which is why life improved so much when sanitation improved - both for water supply and discharge. So they somehow justify going backwards on sanitation and hygiene.

            And I don't recall seeing that kind of reply prior to the pandemic.

            • I haven't heard anything about Covid for about half a year. None of my acquaintances have been sick for a long time. I take good care of my health: I do sports, drink vitamins from Canada Drugs, spend a lot of time in the fresh air and eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. This helps me feel great in the first place and maybe because of this I have never been sick with covid

              • The solutions are simple:

                —don’t test
                —don’t mask
                —don’t get a shot
                —don’t social distance
                —disregard the “orders” and “commands” coming from “the authorities”
                —dissolve the conditioned belief that they have authority over you to begin with
                —carry on with your life as you see fit

                            Of course they work against current - and likely future - variants. That's not at all the point. I'd explain it to you but you won't listen or understand.

                              So here's the sad and ugly truth, swannie. The CDC, Perma-DC and Big Pharma did everything possible to lose the trust of the general public, a large majority of which was NOT vaccine-averse in the early days of 2020. But the aforementioned threesome - plus WHO on the world stage - spotted an opportunity to advance their respective agendas (the first two to regain power in the US; Big Pharma sought profit; WHO sought to grab worldwide power and advance the globalist agenda), and they promoted that agenda by driving a widespread campaign of fear to terrify a generally compliant public to alter normal life behaviors.

                              We knew pretty early on in the game that the folks who were truly threatened were the elderly and those with comorbidities. If the effort was to be truly "on the level", there should have been no lockdowns, and every effort should have been expended to protect the most vulnerable among us. That was what was done in the late '60's (Hong Kong Flu) and the late '50's (Asian Flu), which were similar situations. My tip-off that all was not quite right with the world this time around - as someone who lived through the HKF in grade school, with lots of older living relatives, who'd experienced what I missed in 1957-1959 - was that the mere discussion of natural immunity was quickly dismissed and virtually verboten. The mask crap - for a large majority of the public - was nothing more than performance art, and something I never gave any serious thought to using. For sure we weren't using them in classrooms in the late '60's, and that's at a time when class sizes were still much bigger than now.

                              You'll probably find this amusing, but I did actually get the first two shots in early 2021. I've not gotten any since, and have no plans to get further vaccines. All in all, I was one of those folks who was not really vaccine-averse at the start of the fun & games, but became increasingly skeptical as time and events played out. Now, I feel foolish to have gotten the two original jabs. But I can't un-ring that bell.

                              As Johns Hopkins' Marty Makary has said in retrospect (after many early warnings prior to this) ... the greatest perpetrator of misinformation through this entire pandemic was the US Government (CDC and Perma-DC). And they fooled DJT too, and it cost him his job ... which I think was the goal anyway ... and that's the bottom line.

                              Long and short, you want to get vaccinated, go for it, it's your choice. Mask up? Whatever floats your boat. Not me ...

                              • Wait, who was in charge of the government when all this was going on?

                                Why didn't he do any of this? If it made so much sense and all?
