Captain Obvious Current Events Medicine

Well, it’s pretty

dang obvious now!

Man, I’m happy I’m still a pureblood! I really dodged a bullet, there…

Did I mention that my boss got severe heart problems after getting the vax? Hmmmmm…

Ten percent of Americans who received the COVID-19 vaccine regret having done so, according to a recent poll.

In addition, 15 percent of the 1,038 adults that took the survey said that they have been diagnosed with a new condition by a medical practitioner, weeks or months after taking the vaccine. [emphasis added]

I’m sure that SOME of those new conditions were NOT directly caused by the vaccine. But at least 15% may have been damaged. That’s a lot! Let’s say it is actually half that. “Just” 7.5%.

Do you feel lucky, punk? Well, do you?”

“The mRNA vaccine technology is new and clinical trials naturally have no long-term data. CHD believes this survey points to the need for further study.”

Yup. I’ve been saying that all along. Novavax (IIRC) has a traditional, non-mRNA vaccine just coming out, and while I really don’t think I need it, I think that is virtually for sure a far better option, overall. And I’m not particularly opposed to it.

I just don’t think the mRNA vax is particularly effective and I don’t think it is particularly safe. I’m pretty much OK with the other, though I think that even the very small risk is not justified for most folks under about 70 who don’t have severe pre-existing conditions…

I didn’t take the mRNA vaccine when it first came out because the technology was new and I wanted to see how it would work “in the wild.” Besides, I’ve had the Delta variant and recovered, so I am immune. I can neither get nor transmit COVID.

Well, I think we have the answer to that question, now.
