Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

Recommended Posts



Me and lady both got our second doses of Pfizer last Friday. We both got some side effects the next day. Arm soreness, light overall body fatigue and tiredness. I still got all my regular Saturday stuff done like mowing, etc. But I was feeling a bit groggy. By Sunday morning we were both back to normal.

some are excited johnson&johnson is releasing a one time shot vaccine but i remember they were being sued for their baby powder that was causing cancer. it was done quitely in the news but there was another person who died after taking the vaccine. 

i knew its going to have problems. recalled it, banned it, and now reissuing it..a couple years down the road, itll become just like that cancer causing baby powder..who knows O_o

it is my understanding that right now you cant get on an airplane without getting vaccinated. some countries still have that 2 weeks or whatever quaranteen rules they use to have intact. and the US has issued a travel ban on India but thats just pointless if vaccines suppose to work as it advertises. anyway since my brother moved to other state, i kinda thought about getting one so i can travel, or just get a fake vaccine receipt like everybody else lol..but if i wait several more years, this stupid virus or paranoia whatever you want to call it will probably pass and i dont want to get something thatll make me sick to begin with. if it drags on any longer than that, then idk what anyone else can do.

That J & J vaccine getting stopped seemed like a pointless scare tactic by the media. It was 6 people out of 6.8 million that got blood clots that might or might not have been related to it. Thats a 0.0000147% chance of getting a blood clot. In comparison, peloton treadmills caused 70 injuries and 1 death out of 125,000 units sold. Thats a 0.06 injury rate. Theres almost a 5,000 times greater risk of getting injured or killed by a peloton treadmill than getting a blood clot from a vaccine. XD But the moment someone gets a vaccine and something happens to them, its the vaccine's fault according to everyone. The media jumps on that story too because its a way to make people scared. All the "news" channels aren't happy unless they can make their audience afraid of something or angry at something because its good for their ratings.

My understanding is that the travel ban is in effect because over 1/3 of the US population refuses to get the vaccine. XD The vaccine won't work when people don't get it. XD If you hold out long enough eventually enough people will get the vaccine so herd immunity should be good. Assuming enough people eventually get it. If not I guess we'll all just wear masks the rest of our lives. x_x Honestly its your choice about getting a vaccine. After the second dose I was groggy the next day, but I've been fine since. Hell, I'm going to have some bbqs this summer. Most of the people I know around here have all been vaccinated. My neighbors across the street got the moderna, lady's mom got the J&J just over a month ago and she didn't even get a sore arm or any side effects. My parents both got moderna and everyone at my dentist got pfizer. I know more people that got the vaccine than I do for people who got covid. I will say tho, my one friend got covid a few months ago and he crapped constant diarrhea for 2 weeks and lost his sense of taste for 2 months, even drinking water made him crap. That convinced me to get the vaccine. XD

^ but how many cases are not reported? 🤔 theres this old customer who got the jj vacine about a month ago. shes like in her 70s and she has some health problems before but it was only recently that she was diagnosed with arthritis and is taking blood thinner medications due to her heart condition. she also needs her lungs checked out but her appointment is not until end of june and she said hospital is keep pushing back the date for some reason. i asked her today if she thinks its bc of jj, and she said she just doesnt know if its related or not. thats some serious coincidence if not.

idk it is said 26 countries have travel banned on india, i guess some countries have higher percentage of taking vaccinations than the US but it might be because there could be covid variants that they are afraid of. so even with vaccines, theres no guarantee that they are safe either. and one of customers tested positive for covid like a week after getting a vaccine. he was sick for two weeks..all the ppl he worked with got it, but he still worked and he still came into the store to buy stuff and his face was red and sweating like crazy. i had many customers who were like that showing similar symptoms, some didnt even wore a mask and telling me his or her family members are too young to shop so has no choice. i didnt care though, i had so many customers sneeze and cough at my direction even before texas mandatory mask order had been lifted like months ago so i just let them shop regardless.

Honestly its probably just coincidence with her medical stuff. I say that because 66% of all americans are on medications for some illness. Overall we're a really sickly unhealthy country.

Quote

More than 131 million people — 66 percent of all adults in the United States — use prescription drugs. Utilization is particularly high for older people and those with chronic conditions. Prescription drugs are costly.

And 2/3rds of the US is overweight or obese which puts them in the unhealthy category and prone to medical issues and complications.. So its really easy for there to be a coincidence with anything health related with anything in the US when literally the majority of everyone is sick or unhealthy with something to begin with. 2/3rd of the the population is at increased risk for heart attacks, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. at any given moment. So once somebody does something like get a vaccine and their next doctor appointment they'll get diagnosed with diabetes, they'll blame the vaccine and not the 5 boxes of twinkies they eat every week. x_x

and one of customers tested positive for covid like a week after getting a vaccine. he was sick for two weeks..all the ppl he worked with got it, but he still worked and he still came into the store to buy stuff and his face was red and sweating like crazy. i had many customers who were like that showing similar symptoms, some didnt even wore a mask and telling me his or her family members are too young to shop so has no choice.

Wow. Did he get the j&j shot? That one is only 66% effective. He'd definitely still get sick from covid, but at least it would prevent hospitalizations. But even that 66% defense doesn't kick in until 2 weeks after getting the shot. Its the same with the other vaccines. Like 1 shot of moderna or pfizer is 35% effective I think after 2 weeks, but 2 weeks after the second shot it'll be 95% effective. Theres still that 5% of being able to get covid still, but it'll keep everyone out of the hospital. But this is also how the covid variants keep happening. The more the virus spreads from one person to the next it'll keep evolving through mutations to become more efficient and more deadly. If someone is sick they should definitely be wearing a mask since it'd help contain it to themselves. People that are sick and don't are being offensive since they don't care that you might get sick from them. Reminds me of how cigarette smokers will smoke their asses off and the majority of them don't give a damn about where their smoke goes in the wind when around other people. Meanwhile I have asthma and that triggers me into having to use an inhaler after a few minutes. I take that as offensive. The smoker doesn't think anything about it because they smell like an ashtray all day and don't even notice. Same with people with extreme BO or people that work on farms. They smell like shit all day and then walk into a store with actual shit all over their boots. Nasty.

Anyway, alot of people don't think covid is serious still and probably never will, unless it mutates into a new variant and starts killing everyone off. Ever play Pandemic 2? Its an old flash game. It looks like someone adapted it so people can still play it online since flash was removed from all PCs:

Its interesting because you can play as the virus and the goal is to kill everyone on the planet. It starts off as a regular cold until it can mutate into more powerful strains. The effectiveness of shutting down airports is actually useful to the humans so you want to get your virus into their borders before they become aware of the lethality.

My mom got her second shot of moderna last thursday, she had a bit of a rough night feeling a bit sick that night and the next day she was very tired. By the day after she was completely back to normal and feeling great. My facebook feed has been getting more people with covid. The one person is a friend of my moms.. she got covid last week, her kids and husband got covid 2 weeks before and they went out to eat for mothers day. None of them ever got a vaccine and they're helping spread it. 🤦‍♂️ And the comments were like, "I hope you get well soon." Nobody says, wtf where you doing at a restaurant while sick with covid? -_-;

^ it was his 2nd pfizer shot, but for like 7 years ive known him, he never even had a common cold until he got that shot. idk call it another coincidence or whatever but damn these vaccines scare me more than covid itself lol. O_o

 

yeah i use to play Plague Inc (similar game i suppose) and iceland or greenland almost always survived bc they didnt have airports lol. but once you manage to get just one person infected via ports, then its too late to save the rest. even with travel ban on india works somehow, the southern border is wide open so it wont work in the US lol. thats why i remember when trump started travel banning selective countries (except china wtf) and liberal media were outraged saying its racist, all i could think of was well damn its too late now because 8 covid cases have already been reported in new york and california and it was like one month after wuhan outbreak. so it was everywhere by then. but back then most ppl thought it was going to be something serious and lethal like ebola. but as the virus revealed itself and we learned more about it, it mostly attacks who are old, sick, and vulnerable. if it was like the game and even the first infected could die as it mutated at a fast rate within a few weeks, then yeah i could see ppl take extreme measures to protect themselves, but covid isnt like that. its like a big hit or miss kinda thing, some dont even know they have it until it goes away on its own. ill keep wearing my mask as precaution but anything other than that, i dont think its necessary to go as far as take something i dont want or need. now im hearing some companies are forcing their employees to take their vaccines or risk losing their jobs sigh

If you're asymptomatic, you won't get Covid or even know that you have it, but you'll pass it on to someone else. Wearing a mask is good, even if you're vaccinated, if you're in close vicinity to someone else or a group of people like if you were on a bus or train with closed windows. Wearing a mask or getting vaccinated is also more to do with the safety of people around you - if you're absolutely immune or sure you'll never get Covid. 


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.
