There is no eradicating Covid. Period. Its here forever. If we vaccinate everyone on earth, its not going to change that.
How did we know that polio could be eradicated prior to any vaccines being given? How did we know that? There wasn't any data to that end because we hadn't vaccinated anyone.

The Polio vaccine was studied thoroughly. It was that and part luck. We had concrete data on the efficacy.

People are still free to be extreme hypochondriacs and wear masks everywhere but they're not free to force the rest of us -- and other peoples' children for that matter -- to be as well.

Government-enforced inoculations against a person's will are definitely a violation of one's own freedom. It is bodily assault.

How damaging this charade is for children caught in the middle.

The difference between the Covid-19 vaccine and the Polio, Mumps and Measles one is that the former is not a vaccine at all but a therapeutic. It does not prevent transmission or provide any immunity whatsoever. This is what the data tells us, this isn't speculation.

It doesnt prevent infection, but I think this misses the larger point about the vaccine. It does wonders in preventing serious disease, keeping people out of the hospital, and death. The vaccine is a very good thing and Im very grateful we have it. Its only the mandating of it by governments that I oppose.

...oh but I see even the NJ Governor is lifting mask mandates now. Must not be political, no not at all, it's all the science™.
And if I don't move back what are you going to do burn a cross on my front lawn?
Last time I checked I have the right to live wherever I want.

What an over the top response. Especially to an older post.

My coworkers and I were talking about this the other day, being in N. Va sometimes you forget you live in Virginia, then someone mentions the governor or some obscure random situation and it’s like, oh yeah…
