Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

An update out of Israel: study showing that Pfizer is only 39% effective against Delta. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/07/23/delta-variant-pfizer-covid-vaccine-39percent-effective-in-israel-prevents-severe-illness.html It's still highly effective against hospitalization and death, which is certainly good...

And statistically, this whole issue is over as a point of fact or debate except for long-term side effects. The data is crystal clear for anyone who cares to look at it.
It might also be a bit murky for those like Tortoise who have had Covid already.

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

Not quite Xan...there is indeed a precise definition of GOF research. What isn't clear is whether NIH funds were used in Wuhan for gain of function research. Thanks for clearing that up, Sophie. I got the idea from hearing Rand Paul say this on the radio: I will be sending a letter to Department of...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

It sure seems like there was some kind of serious misunderstanding.

I don't see anything in bad faith about what Tortoise posted. Kbg, could you either specifically explain how Tortoise did something disingenuous, or apologize for the mistake? One or the other is undoubtedly called for.

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

Hundreds of other medical professionals, people who believe that Fauci did fund gain of function research and lie about it, also recommend taking the vaccine. Whether or not this statement is true, why is Fauci still calling the shots if he is a liar? That's a great point, and he shouldn't be. The ...

That could potentially cause an undercount of cases, but as Sophie has pointed out, "cases" don't necessarily mean very much.

Otherwise, there's not much here really. I'm way more concerned about autoimmune/inflammatory reactions, which are responsible for the more serious side effects of the vaccine . . .

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

It's also easy to forget that there isn't just "the vaccine". There are dozens worldwide, and judging by the numbers they are ALL very effective. Okay, perhaps not the Chinese one that failed in the Seychelles... The ones available in the US are all very effective. If you think the two mRNA vaccines...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

I think you should go into a field other than statistics.

So I can only conclude that anyone who persists in peddling this kind of s...

This is part of the reason why I think the voter fraud claims are so believable. If you can convince people that the Republicans are the worse threat to Democracy since the civil war, then why wouldn't they commit voter fraud as their civic duty to save democracy?

Well, I apologize if I came across as suggesting that you were being "irrational." That was not my intent. N=1 is everything when it's you. There's nothing irrational about that, but it makes for poor statistics. Accepted, and agreed 100%. I still think the statistics show that while kids are at lo...

I certainly and sincerely appreciate your sympathies, but I don't need any special treatment, thanks. And I don't think this is causing any kind of irrational approach.

It would make life better for kids if you would get vaccinated. I'll leave it at that. Xan, what would make you regard kids as meaningfully at risk?

Sophie for Surgeon General. She has my vote. You're 100% correct. I would be much more likely to get the vaccine with that type of messaging. If you try to force me with fear-mongering propaganda, forget it, that doesn't work with me. So your decision is based on the tone of the delivery rather tha...
