Its unfortunate it didn’t protect the venerable because they stopped surgeries, and doctors decided to move to online. Also it didn’t stop the economy from being damaged. You seen the price on everything? It is not going to get better.people are frightened? i got vaccinated to protect the vulnerable and prevent economic disaster. guess people have to stick to their principles despite people dying and collapse of our economy and healthcare. good thing there isnt any existential threats looming over us
And it was your choice to vaccinate. And good for you that you did. You are no farther ahead then I, and they still have everything locked down at a 90% vaccination rate and the vaccinated driving the new wave of cases. My parents vaccinated to protect themselves and because they thought it would end the pandemic, and they still believe it will help to end it. Now they are over 70, they would have been crazy not to vaccinate, their risk/reward to be vaccinated was in their favour. My parents are on the edge of being worried, my brother has lost his mind over covid. My sister, well she more pessimistic like me.
So maybe for the -original variant the vaccine was actually needed, so is it needed now when it is a common cold but still fear mongering and pushing boosters?
People die everyday from all sorts of things. So instead of any flu deaths last year we got covid deaths (well because covid displaced the less transmissible flu?) and luckly covid was a lot milder to children so was less children died form Covid than the yearly flu. But after the first couple variants the hospitalizations were reducing, and it thankfully followed the path of every other corona virus, guess it wasn’t so novel.
So maybe soon before we completely fuck everything over, they should start release the grip of fear? There are customers who 20 year old children are so scared of dying that they never leave the house, stressed. Thing is no one NEEDS to be vaccinated anymore unless they are within the covid death parameters.
I wonder how Florida and Texas has done thru this? I believe their death rate is only slightly higher, actually lower than New York with the strictest rules. I don’t recall their economy collasping or the healthcare system collapsing either. Also how come we never hear about Sweden anymore either. They must be in shambles, lol.
