            The thing is that if you do get the jab yes you still can get the virus but IT WILL save you life. Without the shot they're aren't any guarantees. Are you a betting man?

              I think my neighbor is stalking me as she's been googling my name on her computer. I saw it through my telescope last night.

                  doesnt the vaccine have a 95 % efficacy rate?

                  and without it, i have a 99.3 % survival rate...or even if you are in the higher risk group, that number drops to 97%

                  either way, the human body STILL works better then the vaccine

                    And being the vaccine has been out for a couple of months, how does anyone KNOW 100% it will save your life.

                        when it comes to these vaccines, yes I am. I see my odds as pretty good too.

                          There are NO guarantees for anything.
                          Edit: The only guarantee is that every living thing will eventually die.

                            I found it to be a pretty good analogy. If the "rules" of the Covid vaccine applied to other things Dr. Fauci would be laughed at.

                            I work in a hospital, I'm still not convinced every patient in our Covid unit really has Covid. I will say over 95% have been elderly and/or obease.

                            I got my shots earlier in the year, not because I wanted to, but I felt like I needed to as a manager that leads others.

                              Time will tell on the effectivness of the vaccine. Same for folks rolling the bones and opting out. Time will tell. I opted in and get the 2nd Moderna shot in a few weeks. Look forward to hanging out with friends and family without masking up and distancing.

                                My son got the shot and on the paperwork with it said this vaccine is unapproved” WTF.
                                I corrected myself I post it was unreliable sorry for misinformation. I sound like MSNBC

                                  A friend of ours got both shots and a month later donated blood and was told she had no anti-bodies for Covid in her blood. She was not part of any study and should have received real vaccine and is really miffed at this point.

                                    But they are advising to still social distance, wear masks, and avoid gatherings of people despite the shot. There is my point, if all the same precautions have to be held, you can still get sick and others sick, is it worth the risk of long term effects that are unknown when the survival rate is 97%?

                                      You are pretty much correct. The paperwork they go over with you says the vaccine has not been officially approved; however it has been made available on emergency approval, which means while it has met all criteria to date, although it does not have the roughly 5 yrs of study.

                                      Wife and I got the Moderna. Little sore, no problems. 30 yr old daughter (coach/teacher) got Moderna and felt like she had the flu for the next day.

                                        True. Fortunately virtually all of my family and friends are now fully vaccinated or scheduled for the 2nd dose this month. Even my 20yo daughter down at UA in T-town Bama got her first shot last week and will be fully vaccinated when we pick her up next month for summer break. Roll Tide!

                                        Like I said, speculation, and healthy debates on social media is fun, but only time will truly tell how everything plays out. I believe in vaccines and am confident they work to provide additional protection from the ailments they are developed to address. The way I look at it, if folks opt out and get Covid-19, hospitalized or a premature dirt nap, oh well, that's their choice to live, or die with. Not my job to try to convince anyone to get, or not get, a Covid-19 vaccination. Different stokes for different folks.

                                        Be well all,
                                        Pat

                                            Took our grandson to a birthday party at a bowling alley. The place was filled with bowlers and not one person wearing a mask.

                                            The Georgia governor eliminated nearly all restrictions last Thursday. Restaurants and bars (all businesses!) are free to fill to capacity now!!

                                              I hate people who use big words just to make themselves look perspicacious.
