I hope you have lots of hobbies (besides lumberjacking) to keep you out of your wife's hair.

Plenty of stuff to do.

I do see people trolling you specifically. But in every case, you start. What was the purpose of this thread?

Iím sure we will never get an answer to that question since we already know the answer.

I used to enjoy your banter and posts. Honestly? I now believe you are not a good person. I canít think of anyone else here who is not a fundamentally good person. I see straight up hate in your posts.

Just my opinion. You add no value here.

I'm not vaccinated. I haven't knowingly caught the Delta variant or any other variant this year. I caught the original flavor in April of 2020 and had flu-like symptoms, minus the runny nose/congestion, for about 10 days.

My wife is an MD, and there is no hospital or E/R within 30 minutes of here, so her practice has dealt with seeing the Covid/potential Covid patients in this county from the get-go, operating a testing site in the back parking lot, etc. She does not have a problem with me not taking the vaccine and is in agreement that people wanting to to give children the jab are complete ****ing whack jobs. She did get the vaccine, Pfizer, as soon as she was able to as a medical provider for the sake of her elderly or obese patients.

I imagine they are the same whack jobs that push sex changes on children.

I would be pissed if my grandkids got the jab considering the risk/reward for healthy children.

I didn't think much about getting the shot myself because I have always gotten a flu shot as part of my healthcare routine. My VA doctor suggested the COVID shot so I got the Moderna back in March after doing some research on the history of mRNA vaccine development and past human studies.

I thought that too and was surprised to find out via a close friend that the majority of parents putting their children in clinical trials are lawyers and doctors. Not that they canít be whack jobs.

There was a two year old in the study who died. Those parents must feel like shit.

Bump. I'm getting the 1st shot of the Moderna vaccine on Wednesday at my wife's office.

We have good data now on the delta variant, and it is demonstrating much higher viral load than covid classic, and spreads at the same rate as chicken pox.

Also have good data now on vaccine side-effects. The % chance of getting one of the major bad side effects is not insignificant, but it is less than the % chance of getting the exact same long term ill effect from covid itself. Combine this with spread and viral load of delta, and the pendulum has shifted in my mind so the risk of the jab is now worth it in my mind.

This is how personal decisions are made. Gather information, make a judgement call that works for YOU !

That's pretty much the analysis I made. So far no ragrets.
