After the past 2 years I'll never take another vaccine again. Last one was for the flu in '19. But since it's been eradicated by the china bug 2 years in a row why bother LOL!

The U.S. Army has developed "THE JAB" but ironically it is in testing Phase 1. It must go through Phases 2 & 3 before released. I'm sure Big Pharma is fighting this vaccine because "cure" would end the need for the other vaccines and boosters. This means the "waterhole" dries up for Big Pharma.

I have not heard a lot about massive covid outbreaks in the military. Could this be a result of Phase 1 military testing?

Pyrannah, this isn’t my words this is words from Africa and doctors in the US. One of the biggest issues is their is a shortage of healthcare workers and children with Omicron. Everything I’m hearing from people in healthcare is hospitals are over run with people getting tests and people who go to the hospital that aren’t having breathing issues that should be at home.

I said the exact opposite. You all seem to literally be the people making the biggest deal of the Omicron variant at the moment.

I work in healthcare and got the Moderna shots last December after they told me I could stop the COVID testing for at least 2 months if I did. They said get the anti-body test 2 weeks after second shot and if results showed "high antibodies"(which mine did), no testing for 2 months. That lasted 2 weeks! Then they said EVERYBODY that works on the nursing home unit needs to be tested twice/wk.

I am young, in good shape and have no co-morbidities so I was not worried about getting COVID. Just got the shots to make my life easier.........................................or so I thought.

They are now recommending the booster, but it is not mandated yet.....................................

ABout a month ago we got a memo stating the (seasonal) Flu shot was mandated (as it has been the last several years). Up until THIS year, if you did not get the FLu shot, you needed to wear a mask for the duration of flu season. I very rarely get the flu, but got the shot every year up until this year. THis year I decided I was sick and tired of folks telling me what I HAD to do! So I refused to get the shot and of course because of COVID, we are wearing masks for the foreseeable future- so I am in compliance. But now all of a sudden, they are requiring we sign a form like we did for the COVID shots saying we have either a medical or religious exemption if we do not get the shot. Several of us have refused to sign the form because we do not have a medical or religious reason not to sign...........................we are just tired of being told what to do!

I have decided I will NOT get any more COVID shots and if the boosters become mandatory, I will be retiring.

And after the total %$#@ SHOW with my testing positive AND negative on the same day, being cleared to come back to work 6 days later, then sent home the same day only to be cleared to come back to work the next day- and all the misinformation and contradictory information I was told..........................................I will not believe anything they tell me anymore!

In my area the new variant is spreading fast. Several small businesses closed. 4 head out this week at my job. I tested positive 3 weeks ago. Mild flue type symptoms for 2 days then terrible chest congestion (hard to breath) for a week that I'm still not completely over. Still coughing up lots of flim in the am. My wife tested positive sat morning & is still in bed with severe flue type symptoms. Seems to affect each individual differently. ....We are both unvacinated ....

750.000 new covid cases in the US every 24 hours for the last week. The clock is ticking on those of us who have been Covid-free to this point. It's just a matter of time, I guess.

Now, I just heard a report from the medical expert on our local news. She's been a vaccine advocate since day one. Tonite, she talked about something called "immune fatigue". Apparently, it's when your immune system works overtime for too long reacting to multiple vaccines, and it basically shuts down.

I'm so tired of this sh!t.

From: spike78

Matt, omg do you finally see the light!? I can’t imagine a vaccine with 3 boosters is good for anyone’s health. I read today about a study that said if you have had the common cold recently then you have some immunity to Omicron. Well I had two colds in the last 5-6 months and so far no Omicron. I guess an unlucky blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes. Crossing my fingers.

11-Jan-22
I went back to work today. Staying out of the office since I'm somewhere around day 7-9. So I worked outside. Put a new track on a skid steer (fairly physical) and loaded a few customer trucks (distance and N95 mask). By about 1:00 I was toast. I've been sicker but can't say I've ever had a cold or flu that zaps energy like this.

From: bigeasygator

What are the odds this variant runs it’s course before the new vaccinations get approved? Honestly, as fast as this one is known to spread, are we chasing our tail at this point?

Seems like it could be that way. Though the new formulation could prove more effective than the original for future variants.

The only light I've seen in this whole fiasco is there are certain things that are only in God's hands. I still don't subscribe to the nonsensical conspiracy theories that are promoted by some, here.

"^^^ it's the thought that matters... "

Close..... it's the compliance that matters. Rules those who make them don't follow. Told folks..... might be YEARS ago now.... I take this every bit as serious as those making the rules do. Pelosi, AOC, governors and officials of various blue states and other self appointed elitists. Every bit as serious. Just not as much hypocritical azz hat as they are. I'm nobodies mother, free people can do what they feel is best for THEM.

Witch trials were mentioned earlier. Fairly good analogy, but not sure it goes the way they meant it. It wasn't the Witches who attacked folks who had done nothing to them.... it was those who's fear and mob mentality made scapegoats out of those who had done nothing and not at fault for anything. Suddenly it was THEY who were "victims" of Witches and the Witches must be punished. Eliminated from society for non-compliance. Nurses and such who had been on the frontlines saving peoples lives long long before any vaccine existed.... now fired. In the middle of a self inflicted health care crisis of fired staff who refused to comply. Saving lives and serving earlier..... huh. Not good enough now. Police. Military. Front line folks. Great job. Azzhats.

WRT "these threads" and "you people".... what? Nothing else to do but stalk and read threads about the jabs? Oh, and Karen out on others while posting and bringing the thread TTT. Thanks much. Might have missed it otherwise...... =D

A new friend of mine became unnerved at the supposed death of one of his friends by covid(?), so he caved and took the clotshot. Talked to him yesterday and he didn't sound well. Since the day after his jab he had been in bed for 4 days with a screaming headache. 4 days! I'm not so cruel as to tell him he is probably microclotting in his brain. All I can do is pray he recovers.

I'm a big choice guy, if you don't want the Vaxx- your choice.

My buddy died last Saturday of Covid. He had 4 comorbidities and was not vaxxed. He was in the hospital for 3 weeks.

My wife is a nurse- Kaiser on the front lines of Covid since it started working with geriatric patients. They give her daily updates on the latest cutting edge stats.

Bottom line....Covid is all about Comorbidities; 1 to none...and you will weather covid 99.8% 2 and you will be hit hard....still a very good chance of survival 3 or more and your chance of survival drops a lot.....down to somewhere around 80% or less.

Supposedly it's the/or a Hantavirus. They are transmitted by rodents via urine. An old Navajo saying goes; if the deer mouse runs across your lap you'll be dead in 2 weeks. The rodents urinate then it dries out and can become airborne if disturbed. I'm just going to naturally assume the Chins were fooling around with that one as well and it also got away from them. Mass infections are rare to none as far as I know.

So my family of four are now "covid breakthrough". My 12 year old had a mild fever for 36 hours and that was it. The rest of us have flu like symptoms.

Here is what chaps my ass. I'd sign up in a heartbeat to get the actual anti-body treatment, but China joe and flip flop fauci are in charge of distributing it to the states. Colorado doesn't have any. We have been dealing with this China virus for a couple years, everyone is going to get it, but all Biden is preaching is masks, jabs and tests. Try to go freaking Walgreens and get throat lozenges, or mucinex, if you find it you are dam lucky. Our treatment sucks.

Biden says he is "over delivering". What a moron.

My wife's prayer group has been praying for a 54 year old guy who went in the hospital back in October. He died yesterday. Horrible way to end your life.

My brother in Ft Collins, who has degrees in Biology and Microbiology, and his family(two boys/wife), did not enter any building other than their home for over a year. They're all vaccinated, nobody over 48yrs old. All four have now tested positive for Covid(last weekend), he took two of the "quick tests" and one of the others before confirmation.

He literally made me take tests before entering his home on two occasions, love and understand him so I obliged...both negative. I had it in Nov of 20, and again in May of 21(not vaccinated).

My one question to him was "is Omicron the beginning of the Endemic?"...he thinks it could be but still believes in the vaccine.

It's a crazy virus, or subset of, but I believe it will work itself out. I'm sorry for anyone who's lost someone close, luckily we haven't.

I had my booster about two months ago. No big deal.

I’m just a paint guy. This is second hand, I do not have the guy’s CV, weigh it as you may. Almost a year ago, I was talking to a doctor, who is a customer. Back then, he told me that he thought that in the future, doctors would be advocating that patients get a seasonal flu shot in the fall and a COVID shot twice a year, potentially being tweaked to cover multiple variants.

This was before boosters were being discussed. The vaccine was really just coming out.

It seems as though his projection might be spot on.

With deer, ferrets and whatever else acting as reservoirs for the virus, I don’t think it’s ever going away.

And from what I understand, it’s true that viruses tend to mutate to less lethal, more infectious varieties... that’s true of successful viruses.

Viruses aren’t sentient, planning out strategy. They just mutate randomly. A really nasty one could show up in the future.

The flu had been around for a really long time before the “Spanish Flu” popped up.

Who knows if there’ll be a variant in the future that completely circumvents whatever vaccine/booster/natural immunity anybody has. I’ve got too much going on to worry about it.

I live in a high density area, with untold interactions with people each day. I’m an “essential worker” and have been out amongst “the great unwashed” this entire time.

I’ll get future boosters if my doctor continues to believe they’re prudent. I’ll continue following grandma’s directions to eat nutritious meals, work to get enough sleep and wash my hands. And because I’m Swedish, I’ll continue to take vitamin D which most Scandinavians are deficient in. I’ll probably continue with some other vitamins as well... ‘cause... WTF? It’s cheap, can’t hurt, might help.

And I’ll just continue on with life knowing I’ve done what I can.

I have a healthy respect for heights. It doesn’t keep me from running my climber up fairly high. I’m not paranoid that the tree I’m in is going to snap and tip over. But I look at any tree that I’m going up. I’m not going up some bark- less, gray sun bleached, ant and woodpecker drilled sentinel.

Doesn’t seem prudent to me.

I might make a case for what I think is prudent in situations, but I’m not going to demand anything of anyone.

We all have different levels of risk tolerance for different things. And we all have justifications and rationalizations for behaviors and choices.

Being towed in a sled behind a truck across a frozen, snow covered lake at about seventy miles per hour under a full moon, at two in the morning may not be prudent, but it was/is fun.

I’m not paralyzed with fear about COVID, but I’m not licking any snotty, gooey people either.

YMMV

Do as you wish. Be who you wish to be.

I’m with you Rick, who knows where this all ends up, besides being a big windfall for certain companies…My question on the booster, is that do we get this one, only to have another come out next month and so on…

Seasonal like the Flu shot sounds more like it…
