I like seeing what other experts in the field have to say when someone asserts claims in the media:

Here to update. My second shot of Moderna went way easier than my first shot. Only had a red spot and soreness around the shot site. I'm relieved. I was scared to get my second dose after the first shot's side effects. I should be assimilated into the borg soon. lol

No, this number comes from research into the spread of TB in the 19th century.

reading is not understanding.
Not a single thing you said there is true. “Research” around TB? Hahaha either you don’t know, or you’re hoping I don’t know - it came from a German hygienist!! It wasn’t medical research dude, you really look like a fool even bringing that up which is why I’m guessing you just didn’t think I knew better so you’d throw it out there.

And no, the same studies showing masks don’t work also directly looked at masks in hospitals and said they found no evidence of any benefit, that they didn’t reduce infections during operations, and that at best masks were to be worn to protect against viscera during operations - nobody wants to cut into someone and get blood all over their face. Not a pretty sight.

There are very few people who can’t get a vaccine if they want one, and it’s certainly not the entire population’s obligation to shoot up with experimental vaccines with no long term safety data because a couple of people can’t be vaccinated. This isn’t the Borg, this is America and we are an individualist country. I don’t give two craps about anyone I don’t know or isn’t part of my area of interest. I’ll treat everyone with respect and be kind because it costs nothing, but I will never make a single decision that isn’t based on what’s best for me. Period.

You seem confident in what you say. Makes me very curious know. I'd like to read a couple of the studies you read that show that masks don't work. I've read so many articles saying masks help in preventing/minimizing the spread of airborne particles. You say the opposite is true.

So many mistakes. Where to begin? First, from Yale Medicine:
Quote:
David Mulligan, MD, chief of transplant surgery and immunology, knows the importance of masks even beyond the operating room. “When we make rounds, for example, on significantly immuno-compromised patients, we will have a mask on to try to help protect those patients from the spread of disease and to try to protect other patients from bringing potential pathogens like bacteria and viruses from one room to the next,” he says.
You though you knew a cool new word, viscera, but you didn't. From medicinenet:
Quote:
Viscera: The internal organs of the body, specifically those within the chest (as the heart or lungs) or abdomen (as the liver, pancreas or intestines).
The singular of "viscera" is "viscus" meaning in Latin "an organ of the body."
Nobody wants to cut into somebody and and get slapped in the face by a lung!


Finally, the German to whom I referred is Carl Flugge, a bacteriologist and hygienist who was the first chair of hygiene at the University of Gottingen and a professor at the Universities of Breslau and Berlin. His concept of droplet transmission is a part of 21st century medicine as it is well established that microorganisms in droplets expelled from the respiratory tract are a means of disease transmission.


Do a little research and cite some references that aren't anti-vax propaganda.

“ You can't sue Pfizer or Moderna if you have severe Covid vaccine side effects. The government likely won't compensate you for damages either. Under the PREP Act, companies like Pfizer and Moderna have total immunity from liability if something unintentionally goes wrong with their vaccines.”

Cmon - You think that any of this is proof of anything about the vaccines? A few trying so hard to come up with anything to point to of issues and yet can't show any proof. Think about it - where is the proof of issues for any significant number of those vaccinated.

I am genuinely curious to see a few articles to justify/support these anti-vaccine statements. Seeing more statements than articles. The closest I will see online is "masks do not 100% block virus particles but they do reduce the spread". So the wording gets twisted around and anti-vaccine people will assert that masks do not work at all. I have not seen any articles that say the vaccine is ineffective. I've read articles showing people get infected AFTER vaccination but the infection was minimal and prevented serious illness.

Welcome to America in 2021. Some people in this day and age refuse to
accept scientific evidence that contradicts their beliefs or gut feelings. It is
mind boggling to me. We look back in wonder at the dark ages and have trouble
understanding how people could believe in witchcraft/burn people at the stake for it
or think the Earth was flat but these exact same people still exist today, with
different irrational beliefs.

Unfortunately, not everyone acts in the best interests of our overall community.
