The company said it would start the process of firing 593 employees who decided not to get vaccinated

 

 

 

Just give them one of these on their way out, from my flight Sunday night.

This doesn't even make sense. Why even make it optional, let alone difficult to get? Just compel everyone in the prison to get a single J&J jab and be done with it. I can't imagine it's easier to manage the crowds when they're all sick and dying.

Standing with Kyrie. 

 

Will be interesting to see if my company gets to the point of shot mandates; I'm prepared to give them my religious exemption, as well as if that fails for them to let me go. I don't think it will happen though, we just made a huge acquisition and some of the main people (PhD chemists | engineers; management) asked to stay on said they would quit if the shot was mandated. That should offer me some protection.

Why aren’t you getting vaccinated?

What is your religious exemption?

The math doesn't make sense for me (age, lack of comorbids, life style) to get it. 

 

Shot, no shot; based on all the scientific data provided my designation doesn't change. Add in that it doesn't keep me from catching or passing it, and the unknowing booster cycle (I've never had a flu shot), there is little to no benefit of me taking it.

 

Lastly, I've had Covid at least once (a month ago), and maybe twice (Oct 2019 coming back from Japan). Took me out for about three days the most recent time, even had to take some pain medication (generic Tylenol) for the first time since 2008 (half a vicadon, broken wrist). I can deal with that.

In summary, you're being a weak-willed, selfish coward about it.

 

Got it.

Because you're thinking of yourself and not greater society by getting the vaccine despite the chances of it having any negative effect upon you being absolutely negligible.

 

What would me getting it do for the greater society? I've been waiting on that answer for a long time. If a great one can be given, I'd be amendable.

It would potentially provide another layer of antibody protection in addition to that which you already have from your previous infection.

 

It will also demonstrate your willingness to "sacrifice" to the benefit of larger society - to accept a marginally insignificant personal "risk" for the greater good.

Have anything scientific that speaks to that extra layer of protection? 

 

Also, how does that benefit the greater society? I mean, I know that was the initial (unscientific) narrative; that has basically eroded to protect yourself; but there needs to be more than just words.

According to two recent, non-peer-reviewed studies, people who recovered from a previous COVID-19 infection produced a robust immune response that was superior to vaccination alone, and adding one or more vaccine doses offered even stronger protection.

Do I need to get the vaccine if I had Covid? Hybrid immunity from natural infection plus the vaccine can give even better immune protection from reinfection or breakthrough case.

No, you didn't

 

Just lol

Not saying I had it, but man it was everything that came out in the beginning. Wouldn't surprise me if I had, Japan was loaded with the world at the time because of the Rugby World Cup. Also, if you're just saying that I wasn't there, just check Tokyo Club Crawl #600 on Facebook, you'll find a couple pictures of me.

I started to asked for peer reviewed material (as there is plenty at the NIH that speaks in the other direction, but lacks peer review), but that's fine. 

 

Still doesn't address my booster concern; that of which I have no interest. 

 

Also doesn't speak to how I would be helping the greater society.
