Different connotation and implies a sort of 'junkie' status, uncleanliness, uncertainty, etc. I'll casually be like, "yea I just don't want to get needled yet, just still seems a little experimental for me at this time." It's subtle and doesn't work on some people, but seems to make people sorta second-guess their decision, or just kinda shiver at the thought lol

Or I'll be like, "Yea, I'm holding off for now, I know someone who got the needle twice and had a terrible reaction."

Or - "My one buddy, just hasn't been the same since the needle..."

I never use the words: vaccine, vaccinated, covid, jab, injection or mrna. Just... "needle"! lol

mwhah if they can play psychological games, so can I!

This is brilliant linguistic programming. Using it from now on. Thank you.

lol please do, I like to use "the needle" even when referring to both shots, it has a sorta ring of finality to it, like a death knell...

The junkie imagery baggage is a bonus too. 👌🏻

I say “pegged”.

Example: “my simp colleague caved to management like a bitch and got pegged.”
