Have you been vaccinated?

I'm curious as this has political implications. Have you been vaccinated?

Yes, as has my husband and daughter (Moderna and Pfizer), my sister and her Republican husband (Pfizer), my brother-in-law and his wife (Moderna), their daughters (one Moderna and J&J for the one who was pregnant at the time) and all my friends.

Happily, Oregon achieved 70% vaccinated the other day.

Before I answer, I'd like to know what "political implications" you have in mind, and what you're actually trying to figure out, here.

Pretty obvious to me. Use your knowledge of which party's members have mocked getting vaccinated for a 'hoax' virus.

My partner and I are vaccinated. Dad, mom, step-dad, brother, sister-in-law, nephews, aunt, uncle, and cousin.

Other in-laws, who were a vector for infecting my brother, SiL, and one nephew and lost a family member to that same outbreak chain, have largely not vaccinated.

I met a few (SiL's parents) briefly in passing last weekend at the tail end of a gathering with some family (hadn't seen in 10 or so months). They had just been to a cookout fundraiser to build a new church. There was some kind of malfunction with the grills, so the pastor had everyone pray. Then the canopy caught fire. I refrained from making some observations.

Hopefully acbytesla's curiosity doesn't boil down to bigoted stereotypes and confirmation bias. Perhaps you should do him a favor and let him speak for himself.

Also it seems the poll doesn't expose who voted what. So a party line breakdown isn't really possible. Either acbytesla hasn't thought this through, or you haven't. Which would you say it is?

I don't think there should be. But I have heard people in Castle Rock say that COVID is a hoax. There seems to be a lot of GOP members who are dismissive of the health crisis. I actually expect everyone to on ISF to say they have been vaccinated. But maybe I'm wrong.

Your 12 yo daughter has hers then, yes?

As does my 12 yo son (remember they are about the same age)

I think he just did. Of course, you could try and change his post to say something else.

Oh, look...one person (so far) has chosen "No, Covid is a hoax".

Bigoted stereotype, you say?

"Some claims mentioned that COVID-19 vaccine is a Ďtotal hoaxí."


"On November 14, a South Dakota nurse named Jodi Doering... highlighted a real crisis in hospitals around the country, especially in red states where governors have refused mask mandates and the presidentís false claims about the virus are taken as gospel.

In interviews with the Cut, 12 nurses described dealing with COVID-denying patients, from ones who simply refused treatment to those who spit or coughed on them and recited conspiracy theories about the virus."


Covid-19: The Greatest Hoax in History: The startling truth behind the planned world takeover Paperback Ė September 29, 2020
by Dr Vernon Coleman (Author)

"A woman who allegedly live-streamed video inside a hospital to claim Covid-19 was a hoax has denied a public order offence."

"Ted Nugent has tested positive for COVID-19, after referring to the pandemic as a "hoax" on several occasions.
"It's not a real pandemic and that's not a real vaccine, I'm sorry," he falsely argued in another video posted on Christmas."

"A Facebook video filmed live on Dec. 1 and viewed over 6,000 times shows the speaker alleging that the coronavirus pandemic is a scam, that pneumonia is not linked to COVID-19 and that a vaccine against the novel coronavirus will deliver a microchip to the recipient."

Yep, Moderna. Though, given the immunosuppressant I'm on (for psoriatic arthritis) any vaccine may tend to be less effective. Whole household now all V'd up.

Even if we just count currently active members. If acbytesla had made the votes visible, we might see how much of a political nothingburger this poll actually is.

Are you suggesting that COVID hasn't been politicized? That the vaccination rates in Red states and rural areas isn't less than in Blue states and urban areas?

2019?

Ya of course I'm vaccinated. Only an ignorant, self-involved tool wouldn't get vaccinated at this point. I have no problem admitting it here, I wonder why others do.

Got it in March soon as I could. Everyone in my family has it, even the hard core conservatives.

Hundreds of millions are vaccinated around the world, the numbers are going down in places that have higher numbers of vaccinated folk. There's no weird side effects. Get the gawddamn shot.

Surely no ISF member is foolish enough not to be vaccinated by now. I see one person complaining about the thread but, nah.

ETA:
The political implications might be - ya right like I really need to explain that.

You really don't want a correlation between vaccination and political affiliation made, do you? Sorry, too late. It's been done.

Even though she died of natural causes, I bet the anti-vax nuts " will be claiming "Woman who had Covid 19 shot dies!" leaving out the "natural causes" part. Honest, they are not.

I was vaccinated -- I think I've already mentioned this here in one of the threads -- in February (1) and March (2). I got the Moderna vaccine, administered at the VA Hospital on Kingsbridge Road in the Bronx, USA. I don't know about 'political implications,' but Biden beat trump by 83% to 17% in the Bronx last Fall. My wife and I stood on line for two-and-a-half hours to cast our votes. Totally worth it. The only thing we couldn't figure out? trump did a lot better in the Bronx than we expected. A lot better.

Covid vaccine resisters are a menace to public health, and they assert their right to be that. There you have a political stance.

Nobody has the right to endanger others. Let them quibble, haver, deny, and defy all they want.

Me, I'd like to hunt them down. No, not with hot lead, although if they arm themselves that might change, but with high-velocity paintball guns. Odorized paint, don't you think? That would help identify them in the dark.

Yeah, sure, I'm just kidding. Hell yes I am.

As does my 12 yo son (remember they are about the same age)
Daughter is less than 12, so no vaccine. Son is more than 12, so vaccinated.

We still generally mask up as a family because of the unvaccinated daughter for both anti-transmission reasons and moral support.

Got it in March soon as I could. Everyone in my family has it, even the hard core conservatives.

Hundreds of millions are vaccinated around the world, the numbers are going down in places that have higher numbers of vaccinated folk. There's no weird side effects. Get the gawddamn shot.

Surely no ISF member is foolish enough not to be vaccinated by now. I see one person complaining about the thread but, nah.

ETA:
The political implications might be - ya right like I really need to explain that.
I bet I could name a member who hasn't.

Meanwhile, all in the family Mike! have been vaxed.

I am getting my first shot this week. I would have liked to have gotten it sooner, tbh.

Since the vaccine isn't required by law, I support an individual's right to make a choice. Even if I may not agree with their decision or the reasoning behind it.

Making it about politics seems rather silly to me. But to each their own.
