The risk is much higher from an unvaccinated person. Dont try to warp this, Terri. What I said is objective. You are trying to subjectively twist your anti-vaccine feelings into it.

I’m an independent, a former liberal so I’m not sure what political bias you are referring to.
Can you link that study?

How is the risk higher from an unvaccinated person when both groups can catch covid a nd can spread covid with similar viral loads?

Data from Covid-19 tests in the US, the UK and Singapore are showing that vaccinated people who become infected with Delta can carry as much virus in their nose as do unvaccinated people. This means that despite the protection offered by vaccines, a proportion of vaccinated people can pass on Delta, possibly aiding its rise. So Delta is the game changer. You (If you are positive) are no more a threat than a fully vaccinated covid positive person. If you are negative, you are a zero threat.

All these blah blah being said, in my uncle's hospital, all hospitalized are unvaccinated folks, and it doesn't take a lot to overwhelm a hospital. They say if the hospital beds are 20% occupied by covid patients, that hospital is overwhelmed. No doubts that if more people vaccinated, the workload of healthcare providers would not be as heavy.

More broadly, the pandemic continues to take a devastating psychological toll on health workers — not just those who’ve spent the past year and a half working in ICUs but, lately, also their backups. This is just common sense stuff.

I am not sure YOU are a particular threat just because you are not vaccinated, but if this pandemic goes on and on, hospitals would be overrun, and everyone has to pay the price, it is just how it is.

I just won't blame you in particular. If you take the virus seriously, and you choose to be unvaccinated. More power to you.

That's what medical statistics state.

So, if that is not the case with this miraculous covid "vaccine," why are we even calling it a vaccine? Why don't we call it what it will turn out to be? Which is a failure. It looks as though it was never meant to be a vaccine, anyway. When the dictionary changes its definition of vaccine to try to make the covid "vaccine" look better, you know it sucks.
It’s not a vaccine. It’s a government marketing scheme. They will not address it, discuss it, or talk about it in any way. And the shot is a bust anyway. Shot or no shot you can catch and pass the covid. Shot or no shot the virus can mutate. Just like the flu does. The only benefit thus far is symptoms may be less severe. So you have a better chance of not dying. They refuse to come clean about what the “non-vaccine” really is, or isn’t, and it’s actual effectiveness. It’s political. Nothing to do with health or caring about you.

As if there's anyone with functioning ears and eyes who doesn't have this information. If people bothered building a fact-based worldview, they wouldn't be anti-vaxxers in the first place.

Do you folks really not know this or are you so blinded by your political bias you refuse to acknowledge it?
Do you refuse to acknowledge that the vast majority of the world population hasn't been affected by this? Both before and after the vaccine? Political bias doesn't have a single damn thing to do with THAT.

I took the the shot(s) because my spouse with multiple risk factors hounded me to do it. I probably wouldn't have otherwise. And that's not because I might lean heavily conservative... it's because while it's certainly a 'real' thing, and many, many people have died, the only thing this vaccine(s) has been proven to do is lessen the severity. Period.

Something else they have a hard time seeing. If these people got in a debate with a good orator who had all aspects of logical thought down, they would be smoked so bad they would look like a charcoal briquette when the logician was finished with them.
