- If you're vaccinated, why are you so concerned about me? Because I can still get it - Then why get vaccinated if you can still get COVID? Because if I do get it, the symptoms are a lot less worse and I have a higher percentage of survival. - So your chance of survival increased from the current 98.4% to even a higher percentage? (current numbers from the CDC 42,309,246 confirmed w/ 620,652 deaths...do the math) - Then if you're vaccinated, why are you concerned about me? Forcing others to participate in something that go against their own personal choice, to give you a false sense of security over you're own irrational fear, especially when its void of any logic.....is FUCKING PATHETIC!!!

Progs are fools of the highest order. Logic doesn't work with them. Unreasoning beasts such as progs are prone to panic, superstition, and illogical fear. That's what we're seeing.

Check with places with hospitals operating in "critical care" mode that are rationing care. People that need things like bypass surgery are getting turned away. You have multiple myeloma and need a marrow transplant. Go home and wait. The hospital is full. Appendicitis? Come back and see us if it bursts. Are you eager for regeneron while avoiding the vaccine? If so, why do you trust regeneron over the vaccine? If you think the medical establishment is lying to you about the vaccine are you going to forego treatment if you get sick? They can't be trusted at all right?

I'm not. I don't think these other guys are either. Go lick the mirror in a bus station bathroom, knock yourself out.

No kidding, some think it is only about them.
I care because I have family who can't get vaccinated yet. I care because i have friends who have complications that prevent them from getting the vaccine. I care because there are people who we may or may not know who will die from this needlessly.

As was mentioned, surgeries are being postponed because the the hospitals being loaded with covid. I talked to my ortho guy about doing some repairs to a shoulder and he recommended that I wait until this covid thing blows over. Well, that was last year. I'm not in the hurt locker and can wait this out, but others are and shouldn't wait.

If only we had a vaccine to reduce the deaths, sickness, and take the stress off the hospitals....

It is about being a good citizen and caring about others.

It is a self destructive selfishness too. Just like dumping sewage in the lake. Yeah, it is cheaper for you to get rid of your crap that way but if a lot of people behave like that then it ruins the lake for everybody. This kind of communal dilemma is a sort of "Tragedy of the Commons".

I suppose there were idiots who chose not to take the polio vaccine. We can see how stupid those people look today. End of the day - vax/unvax IDGAF, but when you get sick, please stay out of the hospitals.

What if its the vaccinated causing the spread? And causing these beds to fill up? Here's a question, why is the rate of infection higher now, when more of the populace is vaccinated, then last year when there was no vaccine available? Even more interesting, the rate of infection is higher, yet the deaths are lower? Is it possible the answer is the vaccinated are spreading it, and we're learning how to treat it? (Which the latter would negate the cry out for vaccines, no?) And, BTW, anyone comparing Covid to Polio are absolute morons. Unless your thinking "If everyone is vaccinated the COVID will disappear".....which still makes you a moron.

Yes, "the common good" Where have I heard that before? The stupidity in thinking this current spread, is solely because of the unvaccinated, combined with you thinking fear is virtue, only cements the fact you're being psychologically manipulated. I feel like there is a saying about this, "Those who give up liberty in the name of safety deserve neither" or something like that. Almost like out Founding Fathers new of this tactic to impose tyranny.

I bet you all loved the Patriot Act, too, huh? I mean, why not give up the 4th amendment if it'll stop another terrorist attack, am I right?

It's not. Vaccinated people are less likely to get infected and those that do have a shorter infectious period.
why is the rate of infection higher now, when more of the populace is vaccinated, then last year when there was no vaccine available?
Different behavior. Everybody took off their masks and went back to the restaurants, theaters, etc... Right at the same time that a more contagious variant came along.
Even more interesting, the rate of infection is higher, yet the deaths are lower?
Younger cohort of infected since the oldsters have the highest vaccination rate, most of the people that are catching it are under 65 now. And treatments have improved.
and we're learning how to treat it? (Which the latter would negate the cry out for vaccines, no?)
Learning how to treat it doesn't negate the need to vaccinate. Not when, for example, Parrish Medical Centers had one covid death in June, four in July, and 50 in August and its president is on the radio almost every day begging people to get vaccinated and telling the world how bad it is for his burned out employees. Better treatment doesn't seem to be helping overwhelmed hospitals anywhere right now.

Measles has a case fatality rate of 1 or 2 per 1,000. Should we stop vaccinating against that?
