So three weeks ago I go into the hospital to have a heart cath and the next day I come down with chills, severe congestion, feel like warmed over death. Lasts about two weeks. Took two Covid tests and was negative both times. 68 yo, heart issues, COPD, and a few other old guy related complications. I can see how people with severe lung issues could be in trouble with flu, COVID, severe cold, pneumonia. Plenty of viruses, etc that can cause us harm. Do what you think you need to do.

Actually they’ve proven they really do work, and quite well at that.

Lots of folks don’t know, or care to know maybe, that no vaccine is meant to make you ‘bug proof’, it’s only intended to prepare you for being infected by getting your immune system to start producing its own defences in advance.

Most ‘bugs’ can reproduce way faster than your body can produce defensive stuff needed to successfully fight them off.

That’s why they’ve had ‘flu shots’ for decades now, and why they work better some years than others depending on picking the right oncoming strain.

Science gave us the atom bomb. And, science played a big part in the production of lots of Toyotas. Believing it is optional. Personally, I prefer to error on the side that makes the most sense. That's why I like vector analysis. Periodically replacing the air filter on my engines, and on my face, makes sense.

Laughing - I don't get flu shots and have avoided the COVID shots and boosters, masks and camped with friends who had and recovered from COVID. I finally did catch something that appeared to be COVID, but took two hits of Ivermectin and was back on my feet within a few days. It will never be eliminated since it crosses animal species, so we either need to learn to live with it or curl up under the bedcovers and die.


I knew someone who took Ivermectin and she died on a ventelator.

Remember "Get vaccinated get PROTECTED" ?????? What a bunch of Barbra Streisand.

I know more people that are 100% vaccinated that have gotten Covid. No less severe than the unvaccinated.

It does not matter one lick if ya get a shot or not. You have "prolonged" exposure and you will most likely get it it's that simple.

this thread will be closed shortly so get your opinions in!!!

Keep on gettin the stab just don't tell me I have to to protect you. That was another fallacy.

Wonder why there is a shortage of Hospital beds??? FACT it's because the Nurses and others that make it possible to have usable beds said "F" that when they were told they had to get the stab or not work after they spent a year in the jungle without the stab.

Science has proven the opposite. Way less chance of dying from Covid if you are vaccinated.

“Science has Proven” - only problem with that statement is that first you have to start with reliable data.

There are a lot of callous replies here. Some still have this ignorant idea that the COVID virus is a hoax. My daughter works in a Vegas hospital ward and still watches these people die. Yea. It's still out there, and it's real.

My opinion is the efficacy of the Covid shot, or any flu vaccine AFATG, is pretty low. If you compare it to the smallpox vaccine, polio vaccine, rubella vaccine, DPT vaccine, although that is more bacteria than virus, its results looks pretty dismal.

And that is all I'm going to say about it.[emoticon]
