I believe the best advice anyone may give to anyone else concerning being vaccinated aginst COVID is totalk toyour personal physician. That person will know your history andwill be able to tell you, as best they are able, that the vaccoine is safe, or nt safe, for you currently. That really is the best that may be done. This vaccine is so new that there really is no way to know how safe this is except to look to the FDA for any reported adverse reactions.
The real issue though in my mind ius how this vaccine has become politicized. No one is listening to the science and of course the governmebt (the President) is ineffectual in communicating any of this to the American people. Recall it was Kamala Harris and Joe Biden, when asked if they would take the vaccine if it came out before the election in 2020. Bot said they would not because they didn’t trust Trump. So now they are out in public threatening people’s livelihoods for not trusting a vaccine they both said wasn’t trustworthy.
Of course their messaging is so confused how could anyone that was even on the fence as to receiving the vaccination , believe they are comfortable in what they’ve been told. Seriously we have a president stating in public that he is going to protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated. What? Is he telling us that the vaccine is useless? Read that again and tell me. Of course, recieving the vaccine doesn;t currently offer anyone any protection, apparently, because the government still insists people wear masks, yes, even those supposedly protected against at least severe disease. And yes, that’s what they say: the vaccine won;t prevent anyone from contracting COVID, but the seriousness of the illness should be a lot less. The vaccine, of course, if a person does come down with COVID, will not prevent that person being able to transmit it to others. Finally, in a short period of time (6-8 months) the effictiveness wanes, therefore the push to get a booster in the near future. How long after that until a fourth, figth, etc. are needed?
I’m not attempting to influence anyone ine way or the other about the COVID vaccination other than to ask each person to become as informed about it as possible, I’m not anti-vax and never have been but this ”vaccination” is unlike what we have known in the past. Go ahead and do that research so that you may be fully informed as to how this works compared to any traditional vaccine (like inflluenza).
We will either get pastCOVID or have to learn to live with it, like influenza. I hope we are actually able at some point in the near future, to rid ourselves of this scourge. Will everyone being vaccinated hurry that along? ?unknown based on what we’re being told today. It surely couldn’t hurt though, could it?
