Well they found way more than 4. Not sure where he pulled that number out from.

My unvaxxed sister is fighting for her life right now. No pre-existing conditions and fit. Could use some prayers. The nasty thing about this virus is that it's really unclear who it's going to hit hard. Mostly it's old people and those with other health issues, but then it just randomly fucks completely healthy people up.

They are also seeing now that it appears Asians have some genetic predisposition for the virus to mutate and kill itself. 100% believe China did this to the world and I'm treating how I handle the pandemic with this in mind.

Could use some prayers.

Piggybacking on this to mention that Ocugen, who has distribution rights in the US for Covaxin, has applied to the FDA for EUA in children 2-18. There's nearly a total media blackout on this right now. Granted they applied for EUA using a study of only ~500 children, so it has little chance of being approved on that ground alone, but it's still extremely concerning that not a single major news outlet ran the story.

Yea this lady is kind of right. There's a process that is supposed to look at these provisional ballots and discard them when people are not allowed to vote. If everyone followed the rules, there wouldn't be a problem with what happened here.

I'm more worried about the statement that they were letting everyone vote in the presidential election. That's some questionable shit right there. Also, there is no way anyone is going to spend the time to sort through provisional ballots in any meaningful way.

I think it all matters his much there is right? This states it is used in other vaccines. The question is which ones and are they given to children already.

For Covid or all vaccines? We have plenty of vaccines that actually fucking work, so they better not roll that shit back. I don't want a ton of horrible shit coming back just because we overcompensated with china flu.

Even back in the day before all of this shit, people would just put bowls of candy out if they didn't want to be answering the door all night. Just assume the virus had a 30% death rate and everyone took it seriously. Sticking a bowl of candy out would still be safe.

Fuck that. My kids are only little for a brief time. If I can talk time off and still provide for my family, I will. If you're in public office, you have a different responsibility though and you signed up for something more than just your family.

I think there would be if the effectiveness they originally claim lasted longer than 4 months. If we had something that was 90% effective at preventing disease for 8 months, this shit would be over. The problem is that shit drops off a cliff pretty quick, which was always a known issue with mRNA vaccines.

I'm in the minority around here. I think the vaccines are safe. I'm primarily disappointed with how long they are effective and the lies claiming you're basically invincible if you get the shot. I also don't understand wtf the point is in a vaccine passport if after 7 months you have little protection. If you want to do something, base it all on antibody tests, whether from vaccine or infection.

My little girl and I are high risk, so our risk tolerance is a lot lower than most people's need to be. I picked up some iota-carrageenan and another spray called Sanotize. Some trials showed it highly effective and it's pretty ridiculous no one is looking at them closer.

Yea everyone cheering on big government stepping in blocking companies from setting their own policies is a bit ironic too. I don't see this amounting to much other than helping China by hurting our economy. Eventually this shit will go to SCOTUS. Until then it's just hurting us. There's also precedence for allowing mandates for other vaccines, but none of them are short-lived, so I'm not sure how this will ultimately play out.

I was reading the other day this poor family that couldn't get their kid an MRI last winter to check on their 1 year old's tumor because of lockdowns. Fucking unreal. Good news was the kid was on the mend a year later, but I've heard of plenty of stories that didn't turn out well because of paused chemo treatments.

The vaccine initially helps to prevent infection. That protection wanes over time, though much less in Moderna than others. The problem that you have pointed out is that vaccine efficacy against hospitalizations and death is confounded by the efficacy of preventing infection in the first place. So you can group it together and say there is an overall risk reduction, but there's very little data (at least in the US), that helps to support how much, if any, the vaccine helps in breakthrough cases. Granted there's no evidence of it making things worse. With the number of people vaccinated at this point, if things were made worse, we would have seen that emerge.

If they wanted to actually tell how much it helped with severity, they could have simply tracked breakthrough infections as a whole, not just ones that were vaccinated. You need to know how many breakthrough infections go onto be hospitalized or die and compare that to the unvaccinated populate to see if there is a meaningful difference.
