No I certainly will not. Even Karen, who should be near the top of the list, is something like seventh category down. I'll be lucky to be done by the end of the year, and I'm certainly not waiting that long. ****, it's breaking my heart looking at him day after day, and it's not helping her either.

Sorry TH - I guess I’m just overly optimistic about the vaccine roll out everywhere. This time next year I probably still won’t have been able to get it and talking about fire bombing something.

Yeah. we got a population of just shy of 6.5 MILLION and they're enthusing that 21 THOUSAND doses were just released for Ireland from the EU. Go on guys! Have a party! Vaccinate, what, less than 0.3% of your people? Thanks lads!

If it makes you feel any better the vaccine probably won't still be effective by the time you get it. So who cares?

It really wouldn't matter. I'm not naive enough to think that once I get vaccinated I can stop taking precautions, so I'll still be wearing a mask until the official medical advice is that we can stop. I don't see my going maskless till at least the end of the year. Everyone thinks the vaccines(s) is/are going to be a magic silver bullet, and it just is not true.

It was for polio, smallpox, the measles, and tuberculosis

I think it is the magic bullet

But not unless we get it in people’s arms

No, what I mean is that the virus will not vanish in a puff of smoke once that courses through your veins. All the experts - including Faucci - have said it: you're still going to have to wear a mask, wash your hands, socially distance etc for some time. We can't relax until herd immunity is achieved, and that will take a long time.

It's not going to be the suit of armour/force field people seem to think it will be, right away. It's not like "well now I've had the shot, bin the mask and have a hug from me" or whatever.

Like I said in the mask wars thread I’ll follow the guidelines but tbh telling someone who has had a vaccination with a 95% efficacy rate that they still have to behave the same way sounds like “the stop buying masks” be from March 02, 2020

Quote:
US Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams' message, posted to Twitter on Saturday, was a response to face mask shortages as people stocked up due to coronavirus concerns.

"Seriously people," he began, and though it's a tweet, you can almost hear the exasperation in his plea. "STOP BUYING MASKS!"


"They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can't get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!" he continued.
disingenuous political posturing where the left is just as liberal with the truth as the right

I believe the honest message is don’t act like you’ve had the vaccine until you’ve had it. Once you’re vaccinated you’re only 1/20 as likely to have the virus and if the person you’re interacting with is vaccinated as well they’re only 1/20 as likely to be susceptible to it. Plus, with high risk comorbid people being vaccinated first the likelihood of catastrophic results are again profoundly reduced.

Like with that **** above when they were trying to tell me masks don’t work I was like hmmm they work for medical staff but not for me... not buying that one chief ... I’ll follow the guidelines but the left and the right and even “the scientific community” needs to start talking straight. They come at everything sideways.
