For all the Pro-vaxxers in the house

You're over 65 so line up. Get your booster. You work in a Covid heavy environment book store so line up. Let me know how it goes. I'm curious for a first hand account.



What You Need to Know
COVID-19 Vaccine booster shots are available for the following Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine recipients who completed their initial series at least 6 months ago and are:
I’m 41. 2 of the 40 or so people who have worked here have gotten infected.

Well, I spent a good deal of time in the prior post on the science aspect and you didn't address any of the points. But that's fine. We simply disagree. As long as you maintain faith with your libertarians ideals we won't likely confront each other over vaccine mandates as that would be anathema to you.
It's because I've read all the pseudo-science before. If you want to point fingers, the problem is that now too many people don't trust scientific announcements. This isn't because the nature of science is bad, but it's because certain people (and I'll be blunt and point out that these people are Democrats and liberals) politicized the science around global warming. It's not that the global warming isn't happening, it's that the science is being used to drive a collectivist agenda, and those of us who are opposed to such an agenda see it happening. This calls into question ANY scientific pronouncement that makes us change our lives in any any way, even if it is the infinitesimal one of getting simple shot. Bottom line remains, however, that the vaccine works and that people should get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.

Quite the opposite. Conservatives politicized the science of global warming after being fed a diet of oil-company propaganda because the only workable solution involved regulation and planning.

Read the nuttiness of the Ocasio-Cortez proposal from last year. Give up your car, give up airplanes, rewire your house....and all she did was coalesce all of it into one document. Conservatives weren't the only ones pushing back. I'ts not regulation and planning when it comes to fossil fuels, it's the regulation and planning into everyday life. And it's futile because the BRIC countries won't do it, too. And all of these, "You have to give up..." proposals are coming not from the right, but from the left.

So you're not over 65, working in a hazardous Covid environment, nor immunocompromised. I bet if you just show up and ask for it they'll give it to you anyways.


They most certainly are experimental. It takes usually at least 7 years to get a vaccine approved. You have that time in order to see what the long term effects of the vaccine might be. Can't do that under a year.


Try and see if they'll give you the third shot. Or...
Try reading the vax insert. See if it is still a blank sheet.
I got my booster today, along with my flu shot. Jabbed in each arm with the booster being different than my first two. 2 Phizers 6 mos. ago and a Maderna today.

I so skeeered!!!

Sounds like we need to organize to make sure that the sacrifices are being made by big corporations and militaries and not ordinary people, and damn fast. Because the sacrifices that someone will have to make to avert the most catastrophic climate change pale next to the sacrifices that will be forced on us if we do nothing now.

China has *drastically* cut emissions per capita relative to GDP. If the U.S. went as far as China did in cutting emissions, we’d have the global warming problem half licked.
