I don't think I'm going to get vaccinated, how about you?

It bugs me that people I know who've been jabbed get sick for a few days. And it also bugs me that if you ask questions about being vaccinated on certain reddit forums, you just get banned, like there's a Conspiracy or something

It bugs me more the fact that unvaccinated and infected people I used to know died (or at best got screwed) from it. Priorities, I guess.

Lifelong lung/nervous system damage concerns me more than 3 days of a pseudo-cold.

[@572847,Jm31xxx] Many of us consider life and continued health as tangible benefits. Ask all the covid deniers who-- oh, that's right. They're dead.
Jm31xxx · 41-45, M
[@627992,Graylight] I know quite a few who are still OK and as dubious as ever.

And I'm not a Covid denier, just dubious about [i]this[/i] vaccine
Graylight · 46-50, F
[@572847,Jm31xxx] There are three different vaccines from which to choose, and likely new ones on the way. Every one of them will be tested the same way, they'll all have the same trial and none of us ever know the ultimate efficacy of medication in the short run. It's what we call a necessary risk. This is how science works, even when the curtain isn't pulled back.
I will take it eventually tho I have no interest in it; but it’s so funny to troll ppl rn by saying anything against their beliefs as their fear has already taken over them

[quote]1000 page style arguments[/quote]

🤣lmao [i]124 words [/i]was too much for you? Sounds like an excuse not to respond but ok...
[i][b]Tl;dr[/b] People are indeed suffering financially from COVID but they were before and they will be after and your conspiracy falls on it's face because the powers that be don't need COVID for people to be in debt [/i]

Concise enough for you?
[@360493,Pikachu] yeah it’s too much for me I don’t have the energy for that; and I never said covid is the only reason why ppl are in debt, I meant it is inhuman for the governments to treat people this way

You said that the fear of COVID is being deployed to keep people in debt when it is not necessary because as you admit, people have been and will continue to be in debt either way.
You can be upset about the measures deemed necessary to control the pandemic if you like, just keep the weak-ass conspiracy shit out of it.

The issue is that we're conflating illness with the immune response.
The "sickness" observed is just the immune system doing what it does when building an immune response.
That's what vaccines are for: teaching your body to fight a disease without actually having to fight the disease.

Very true. Feeling a bit poorly for a few days is a small price to pay compared to what this disease can and has done to millions of people.

[@360493,Pikachu] Yes. It's like working out to build muscle and then complaining that your tiny muscles hurt.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
It bugs the hell out of me that people are seeking attention off of proclaiming they are not getting vaccinated. If you don't want to be vaccinated then don't do it instead of turning it into your personal achievement story.
MougyWolf · 36-40, M
[@8638,MarkPaul] same could be said about those posting their vaccine papers, or tattooing it even. Virtue signalling all the same, wouldn't you say?
Jm31xxx · 41-45, M
[@8638,MarkPaul] I'm not proclaiming anything, I'm asking for opinions. At least here you can ask questions but other forums you can't. That spooks me more than anything
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
[@572847,Jm31xxx] Okay, okay. Calm your tits. Your body is supposed to have a reaction to the vaccine (any vaccine for that matter). That is nothing to be bugged about. Stop hoping for a magical solution and then being upset when your fantasy doesn't match reality.

[@44863,Elessar] haha I love how you label my opinion misinformation 😂😂😂😂😂 funniest joke I read all day. I missed laughing at you sugar.

Whether or not you get vaccinated is your choice, but it does have consequences for others. We're not talking about just your protection, but protection from you should you contract or already be an asymptomatic carrier.

Some people are having ill effects from the vaccine shot, true, but many, many are not. I felt no different after each shot. My partner got hit with side effects, but it was two days of not feeling great and a low-grade fever.

Play a little game with yourself. Take a small breath and hold it. Just a little one. Now, without exhaling, take another tiny breath. Repeat a few times, and it should give you a good idea of what it's like not to be able to breathe adequately.

Feeling a little icky is nothing when stacked against death, cardia complications and long covid, which could shorten the lifespan and crated indefinite mental and physical problems.

It's safe. It's tested. Its formulation is soundly based in research and known science. And it's not political. Conspiracies don't exist in nature. Do your research, put the numbers side by side and make an informed choice either way.

I’ve gotten both doses. The side effects aren’t a barrel of laughs but they’re a damn sight better than the virus itself.
AbbySvenz · F
Do you agonize over tetanus shots? Polio? Measles/Mumps/Rubella?

Also: why do people think people doing the socially responsible thing and getting vaccinated is done out of “fear.”?

You do it for the same reason you wear a mask in close public spaces: so you lessen the risk of inadvertently passing it on to others.
th3r0n · 36-40, M
There is, and it’s related to the mark of the beast in revelation at the end of the Bible

They’re already requiring a “vaccine passport” on the hand and forehead to work or go into public places in some areas
MougyWolf · 36-40, M
No, I will not be getting the jab. Fuck the new world order, and their skull fucked sheep.
Graylight · 46-50, F
[@1501,MougyWolf] I realize that's what it looks like from the cave, but we're actually enjoying the sunlight of sound science and medical research.

Tell me, do you protest to have your protection form measles, mumps and rubella be removed from you? Damn, near the whole country fell for that one.
spjennifer · 56-60, T
The ones who make me lol are the Evengelicals who state that getting the vaccine will mark you with the "Mark of the beast"! OMG, Satan is going to take over the world! It's no different from the many vaccines we received as children, Smallpox, Measles, Mumps. Will be getting the shot when I can.

THIS, actually, is the true mark of the beast.

[@1501,MougyWolf] Prison tat?
WandererTony · 51-55, M
I have taken 1 doze and will take another soon. There is no harm in taking the vaccine. I felt no sickness. But statistics show that probability of death from Corona is lower if vaccinated.
lori04f · 18-21, F
Have a relative that got the vax, was so excited, then got a bad infection and died a few weeks later.
Graylight · 46-50, F
[@377969,lori04f] I had a relative who bought a brand new car and dies a month later from cardia arrest.

Correlation is not causation. Going by that logic, I know of 3 million people who caught Covid and 500k of them died. I wouldn't recommend that, either.

I got my first dose on Friday. havent gotten much of a reaction. Just felt a little tired over the weekend. Arm mildly sore. Arm stopped hurting yesterday and feel better today so far. Not sure because I just got up.
jackson55 · M
[@533101,Penny] I’ve had both shots and have had no reaction at all.
Jm31xxx · 41-45, M
[@15676,jackson55] how old are you though? I should have clarified, I meant to say younger people seem to get ill
Graylight · 46-50, F
[@572847,Jm31xxx] Well, no problemo, then. Given your stated age range, you're well out of that category.
jehova · 31-35, M
[u]I complete understand your perspective on this one. Technically all complications of a vaccine are not known until 5 years after it's application. I was determined to wait 2 years, but My job strongly insisted i get one. WTH[/u]
Crazywaterspring · 56-60, M
I've had the Moderna shots. You feel bad the next day then you get on with life.

Science is real. So is the virus. Blowhards on cable TV have had their shots but still tell the fools vaccines are horrible conspiracies.
basilfawlty89 · 31-35, M
I'm getting the vaccine the moment it becomes available to me. I don't wanna get hooked up to a respirator.
SumKindaMunster · 51-55, M
I got the J&J one on Saturday, and other than a sore arm at the injection site, I haven't had any side effects.
QuixoticSoul · 36-40, M
Got the J&J, ready for travel.
