COVID vacc

I do not attend crowds, if at all possible. Nothing to do with Covid virus, just my preference, and has been for a long time.

From the start of this, I have been for freedom. If you want to wear a mask, stay home, and get vaccinated, that's your decision. If you want to go out to eat, not wear a mask, not get vaccinated, and attend church or concerts, that's also your decision. If you get sick and hospitals are overrun, you chose poorly. If you stay home and lose your income and go bankrupt, you have to live with that as well. We all need to choose what is important to us and make our own plans to achieve it.

The Cliff's notes from me is: Protect your vulnerable and protect yourself as you see fit.

Personally, I continued to work every day through the whole pandemic. I washed my hands, avoided my parents, stayed away from people, etc......... 4 months later, my 18 year old brought covid home to the family from his work. We quarantined through it and my wife had a 5 day hospital stint due to nausea. We are all fine now. A month after quarantine, we began to risk getting around my parents as long as we were going to their house from home and not carrying other people's germs. We spent Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day with my brother, his family, and my parents. By Christmas 5 of the 9 of us had already had the disease, so we were minimal risk to my parents. My parents took the Pfizer vaccines in February and they are doing fine. I test frequently for the antibodies and as long as I have the antibodies I choose to not wear a mask or worry about where I go. I have had the antibodies for 9 months now. I'm still careful about where I am before I see my parents. They did meet us to eat out for their first time in over a year when my DIL and granddaughter were in town last month. My parents are in their mid 70s. Mother in law is 89, had the Pfizer vaccines, and is doing fine. We still don't take her out in public. I visit my parents about once per week. I made them lunch on Sunday.

There was a huge outbreak of covid at my company headquarters in February. Of the 40-50 people at the office we had 18 quarantining at one time with covid. Everyone pulled through and it seems we have reached herd immunity at work. I'd guess that at least 30 people in total have recovered from covid at the office. I was the first, but I work from home and didn't give the disease to anybody.

Edit: There is one bit of information I discovered that you don't hear about. My son gave me the covid. My symptoms arrived 3 days after his. So that means a 3-4 day incubation time before symptoms appear.

and if you make all the right choices but still get sick but can't get help because the hospitals are over run? What then?
We all will die eventually. I was willing to take the chance, but was extra careful to protect my parents and stayed away from them until long after I recovered. I wasn't looking to catch the virus, but I wasn't willing give up my way of life to avoid it.

the problem is that you're not just taking a chance for you, you're risking everyone else as well. If hospitals become over run with covid cases it's not just you who suffers.

Then let's outlaw alcohol because someone might drive drunk. Let's outlaw cars because people speed. My whole family has never infected anybody. Including my 89 year old mother in law who often stays with us.

How long will your country be isolated? Covid is waiting for you when you do open your borders. You are nowhere in terms of herd immunity. We'll have Covid behind us in 6 months.

I doubt that very much.

People choose to drunk drive, smoke and act poorly.
People do NOT choose to contract the virus.

Your whole premise is garbage.

In 6 months?

I thought it was meant to miraculously disappear in April ... LAST year?

It's been in my rearview mirror since August, but Slow Joe is going to drag his feet as long as possible. After 6 months, even he can't justify the bluster unless the vaccine starts making people sick.

Lol :ROFL1

A T**** supporter criticising President Biden for his response to COVID.

Quite possibly the funniest thing I've read on here.

in all the years we've had alcohol I don't know off one case where it has absolutely and completely overwhelmed the medical system in the way covid can. Same goes for all the other examples you gave. You've often cited having to wait a few hours because a family member couldn't get into hospital because of some illegals .... multiply that a hundred fold to see what sort of effect covid has on a health system if left unchecked.

How long will your country be isolated?
As long as it takes.

Covid is waiting for you when you do open your borders.
and we're in a better position to be able to deal with it. Every day we are learning more and more about it. Every day more and more people are becoming immunised. It'll eventually get to the point where covid won't bother anyone no matter where it spreads in Australia but we're not there yet.

You are nowhere in terms of herd immunity. We'll have Covid behind us in 6 months
Herd immunity will be gained by vacinnating, not by letting it kill off our population.

you must be kidding?
He has to be. Just trolling for laughs, I think.

The world knows that T**** did absolutely nothing positive in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He ignored it, said it was a hoax, refused to take action and, as a result, killed half a million Americans.
