Well aware, but you said you donít get sick, so whatís the problem.

This virus isnít going away for a long time. If the vaccine doesnít stop anybody from getting it, then even if everybody is vaccinated, it is still going to propagate through society.

Not necessarily. The more virus in the population increases the chances for more deadly mutations.

Didnít we just establish that the vaccine doesnít stop you from getting the virus? So it shouldnít be shrinking that footprint.

The vaccine has shown to reduce the amount of virus in the population even if it's not 100%.

I don't think I ever said that I or someone else won't get sick. If you are vaccinated and get sick you're less likely to get seriously feel from it. We're lucky with the Delta variant that if you're vaccinated you're less likely to be seriously ill. We don't know what will happen with the next variant.

I read that there will be a variant soon that will be resistant to the vaccine...who will you get mad at then?

planning to head down in November 99.7926% of Florida residents have not died from covid if my math is correct....I'm healthy, vaccinated and I wear a N95 mask in places where it seems appropriate, I just believe that people are responsible to make their own decisions regarding some of these things and that there is a lot of overreach... which makes me an "anti-vaxxer" by the latest revision of definitions to suit some people....

And it is a fact that the unvaccinated with natural immunity there are 13 times less likely to get the variant than the vaccinated.

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

1984 was a warning, not a guidebook!

It's time more people spoke up with the truth. Every time we let a leftist lie go uncorrected, the commies get stronger.

That assumes you survived getting the virus in the first place and hopefully didnít infect or kill others in the process. The issue is the more this virus has a chance to evolve into the next more deadly variant, the more people die and it is the large unvaccinated population in the world and the US which is allowing it to happen. This latest variant has proven to be an issue for the young who may not have had issues with the initial virus, which again highlights the need to get more vaccinated.

The group of unvaccinated persons are truly survivors of their first infection, this means that many of the weak and problematic health cases have died during their first infection and are no longer present in that group. If Covid has a mortality of 1.5%, then this subgroup is 240 cases for the 16000 large group. However: all those cases of weak and problematic health who likely die from an unprotected infection are still present in the group of SARS-CoV-2-naÔve vaccinees. So a selection was done where the most vulnerable persons were taken out of the unvaccinated group (death), but that selection is not done in the vaccinated group simply because it is not possible to predict at forehand who will die from an unprotected Covid infection. Although the groups are finally selected on equal risk factors, the above observation will always introduce a huge statistical bias.

I am quite sure that the group of cases found in the 'vaccine' group are largely those persons who would have died from an unprotected Covid infection. Because those persons are by definition not present in the unvaccinated group (they died during the first infection) you can explain the number of cases in both groups precisely by the above described mechanism. The conclusion then is that the found cases have nothing to do with 'better resistance due to an earlier infection'.

odds are pretty good...according to Johns Hopkins Universityís mortality data as of Aug 6... 98.3% of people in the US who have gotten covid survived, we know that there were a lot of "covid deaths" from car accidents and stuff and that there are probably lots of unreported covid cases that would bring that number even higher...you sound as though 98.3% have died after getting it...very odd

Boy how you can twist a post into something I didn’t say, doesn’t survive mean the group Bruce refers to lived, dahhh. Getting it and surviving doesn’t make you immune to the next variation and studies now show long term effects from getting covid are common, personally I’d rather be vaccinated once, twice and a third time rather than rolling the dice, which is exactly what you do if you don’t get vaccinated.

Boy the donít mess with my freedoms crowd are not going to like the latest mandates, although it should help the majority of our workforce. Doing so should help the economy if the majority of the US workers get vaccinated. I get the argument, but we have lost numbers that basically make this a world war, why not join forces to beat the enemy and prevent that next variant that could be far worse?

TL : DR

The problems with vaccines are that racist white people on the right side of the aisle won't do their part.

It is not black people, hispanic people, asian people, or native American people that have low vaccination rates (they do - fortunately it is improving).

It is not Illinois, Colorado, Oregon, Virginia, each roughly on par with Florida, with vaccination rates - it is Florida that is the problem.

It is the Freedom loving white people that are the problem.

This has been insanely over f cking politicized.

The total context may be incomplete but that is the results that were publicized.


A new study from Israel looked at thousands of people who had either been vaccinated against COVID-19 or were unvaccinated but previously infected
Participants who were double jabbed were 5.96 times more likely to be infected and 7.13 times more likely to experience symptoms
After three months, risk of infection was 13.06 times higher among immunized individuals and they were 27 times more likely to experience symptoms
Researchers say the study has many limitations including the Indian 'Delta' variant being dominant and participants not being required to be tested
The study does not discourage vaccination because unvaccinated people are still more likely to be infected with Covid or hospitalized than vaccinated people

I read an interesting dive into the various studies. Several hypotheses can be drawn:


Previous Covid infection is one of the best defenses against getting C19 again, or the Delta.


Getting vaccinated on top of a previous infection is even more safe.

Pfizer seems to have most lost of effectiveness

We will all no doubt know more going forward, but Iíd agree with the conclusion at the end, getting the vaccine regardless of your vaccine status is good for society and probably especially valuable to anyone living a more risky public life.

What I donít see in the comparison of the difference in effectiveness between having previously had COVID and the vaccine is the fact that if you had Covid previously you survived.
Taking the most vulnerable out of the data would skew the results.

just curious..."IF" they discover a way to inject something with the vaccine into you or implant something under your skin that will let the government know that you have Covid or whatever so that they can make sure that you are not a threat to others...would you jump right in line? Would you support mandates for this science?...it would be "good for society and probably especially valuable to anyone living a more risky public life"..think about the possibilities
