Its a good example of the value of vaccines, one well up the chart is smallpox that has being virtually eradicated by a vaccine. A good example for the anti vaccine brigade.

Whole different gov then, and a whole different population of docs in the medical field.
I'm about as likely to get THIS vaccine as I am to hatch a dinosaur egg.

Its up to the induvial, i will not be scared of getting the vaccine if it will help save lives. Some people are happy to let others do things to help, while they sit back and do nothing history is full of examples.

If you knew anything about me you would realize just how ridiculous that little dig was.
This whole virus thing has been an overblown farce. Yeah there is a virus. Old or folks that would likely have died from the flu it has killed .

But it's been used as an exercise by power hungry officials to see just how close they can push Americans into obeying like ehh some other countries populations do , before they collectively tell gov to go pound sand.
Not wearing a mask. Not going to get no vaccine that conveniently pops up when the socialists are about to take over. Period.

And people get a vaccine for the flu, to help keep infections and deaths down. I suppose the flu vaccine was a cunning plan by ( power hungry officials to see just how close they could push Americans into obeying ) But i suppose if it usually kills older and sick people its nothing to be concerned about.

The government didnt shut the nation down. Remove civil liberties, and attempt to intrude into peoples homes over the flu.
Nor did it fabricate numbers, and lie through its teeth to push those same things over the the flu.

Apples and asteroids comparison

Holy S***! And I thought I was getting the flu of my own free will to keep from getting a life threatening disease. I got my seasonal flu shot about two months ago. By the time that the Covid vaccine gets to my age group, the effects, if any, will be known. I will take it on the first day it is offered.

I don't give a rat azz who doesn't get the Covid vaccine and doesn't take other preventive measures, I just hope my tax money doesn't go to keep them alive. That is too much like Socialism.

For those who still think it is just a cold, talk to the families of the 1/4 million dead. Yea, I know, nobody died from it either.....Some folks can live in a fantasy world where everything is a conspiracy and everyone is out to get them. There is a name for that.

The flu does not spread like CV19, mostly due to people getting the flu vaccine, that helps keep the deaths and infections down. If people have a issue with civil liberties and lockdowns etc, a effective vaccine is the way out. Maybe its just me, i do not go to bed with a gun and a tin foil hat thinking they are all out to get me, but i should release i am wasting my time trying to rationalize with people, with that mindset.

I still think this COVID stuff is part of something sinister and far bigger then us little folks know. I just have no trust in world leaders, our government and the elite. The past election just adds to my feelings. The fix is in.

Just watch, the vaccine is going to be played as just more proof that big government is needed in every aspect of our lives. Most of the sheep will lap up the Koolade too.

As far as i am concerned the sooner the better, i will have no issue getting it. I doubt if its a plan by the conservative government to turn me in to a socialist.

Through the government’s Vaccines Taskforce, the UK has secured early access to 355 million doses of 7 of the most promising vaccine candidates, including:

  • Pfizer/BioNTech for 40 million doses
  • Oxford/AstraZeneca for 100 million doses
  • Moderna for 5 million doses
  • GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi Pasteur for 60 million doses
  • Novavax for 60 million doses
  • Janssen for 30 million doses
  • Valneva for 60 million doses
Vaccination will be managed by the health services in each nation: NHS England and NHS Improvement, NHS Wales, NHS Scotland, and Health and Social Care Northern Ireland.

Oh I'll take the vaccine, don't get me wrong, I won't be the first in line though.

Even the speed of how they came up with a vaccine has me suspicious though. Usually these things take years.

US numbers no vaccine to help put it into perspective.

Recovery numbers are very encouraging. I personally know about 20 people that got through it with no big issues. Sad for those that didn't.due to being in the high risk category.

So far I have been lucky but I do what I got to do in order to minimize the risk.

We will see in about 8 months what warp speed did for us.

My co-workers wife got it, and got over it, but now has blood circulation troubles in her feet. Doctor said that it caused damage to the blood vesicles.

Add 34 million to the known cases, that's just 10% of the total U.S. population that possibly never knew they had it.

to put in perspective...we had 12 people die of COVID in one day last week, the only other time we had that many people die in one day was when a bus went into a river
