They're concerned for your safety, and the safety of those around you. That you describe that as "sickening" is just sad.

Same ****, different day. One needle out of ten.

Why do you keep posting this same crap every few days? There isn't a person in this forum that doesn't know your (ignorance based) opinion on vaccines. I could understand if you were to provide evidence that vaccines are worse than contracting COVID but all we get are links to ******** CT sites and "feels" from you.

Bull, my grandkids take care of their own immune system and not jabbing themselves with an unapproved experimental drug. PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

It's truly no one's business what one chooses to do with their health decisions.,...and the millions of SHEEP that get the jabs, good lord.

There are ways to keep and stay healthy and it's not the RNA stuff flooded into one's body.

My grandkids are NOT worried so WHY are all the others worried, take care of YOURSELF I say. And if one does the jabs, what are they worried about????

It wouldn't shock me one bit that she has received the vaccination but she enjoys trolling people. It also wouldn't surprise she is being truthful. Lots of people are looking to win that Darwin Award.

Unapproved experimental drug? ROFLMAO

The drugs have been approved.
Hardly experimental. 2.1 billion people have received at least 1 dose. More than a billion people have been fully vaccinated. I have yet to read where a single person has died as a result of the vaccine. On the other more than 626 thousand Americans have died from COVID-19.

It has been approved for emergency use and is expected to receive full approval this week.

Personal responsibility? What about responsibility to society? Responsibility to the people you come in contact to?

By the way the government can order you to be vaccinated. And this is Supreme Court tested.

All you people who did your jabs what the H are you worried about, you are all immune Right? And you can't infect anyone Right? And you can't be infected, Right.

If and when the people I come in contact with have the Jabs, what is there to be concerned. They are Immune due to the jabs....

Half the U.S. population did NOT do jabs, and no way can they be forced to get the jabs...

What is everyone's obsession with this RNA technology going into their body????????


And dam it, they have NOT been approved, authorized for Emergency Use.

Wrong Caroline on all counts.

There are still 150 million Americans who haven't been vaccinated yet. They are susceptible not only in getting the virus but are susceptible to creating mutations that are not only more deadly but more contagious.

And I'm sorry Caroline, they can be.

Businesses and schools both can require vaccinations from their employees. And unless SCOTUS wants to upend precedent the government can require citizens to get vaccinated. They have done it for other vaccinations, I don't see why they couldn't do it for COVID. And if you want to travel outside of the US you better be vaccinated as nations are requiring COVID vaccination documentation.

That's generally true in the case of personal health decisions that only effect that individual. If someone wants to chew tobacco or eat themselves into a state of morbid obesity, that's their own business.

But health decisions that put others at risk aren't a private matter. I'm once again appalled, but not surprised, by your selfishness.

Yeah, you wouldn't want any of that RNA in your body. It's full of unmethylated thymine, which is a scary word.

I never said anything about your grandchildren. You said, "THe pressure from my grandkids family (cousins etc is sickening)...[sic]". I was referring to the "cousins, etcetera". And the fact that you think their concern is sickening is still sad.

Some of us actually care about others.

It's less likely, but still possible. It's very unlikely that I'll get sick, but the possibility still exists that I could transmit it to someone else before my immune system kills it in my body.

Depends on what they want to do. They can be required to be vaccinated to hold a job, attend a school, travel, etcetera. This is nothing new.

You're the one with the obsession. You're terrified of something you don't understand. You don't even realize how ignorant you are to talk about RNA like it's some man-made thing.

At the core of every anti-vaxxer is the needs to know more than most people, paired with the drawing realization that they know far less than most people.

Caroline, ignore the haters. All of these vaccinated people are going to look so goddamn stupid in twenty to thirty years when they die of heart disease and cancer. It's too bad you won't be around to see it.

Approved for emergency use ...yes. So what?

And what is everyone's "obsession"? Can a more stupid question be asked? This is not an obsession. It's a safety measure to prevent a disease that could kill us or the people around us.

BTW, you're body is filled with RNA. You pretend that RNA is a strange thing. The mRNA vaccine teaches your body how to fight the disease. The vaccine helps your body not so much from acquiring the virus, but acquiring the disease and it uses your immune system to do it.

No. We've explained it to you before. That's not how vaccines work.

They decrease your odds of getting it, of developing symptoms or serious issues, and transmitting it, as well as lowering the odds of you being the source of a new variant. But they are most efficient when everyone is vaccinated.

It's approved in Canada.
Approved in the UK, EU and Japan also. Itís not like a global conspiracy in which Big Pharma wags the tail of the international governments.

Caroline, why do you think governments are printing money and companies are going belly up if all they would need to keep open was to give out grape seed extract to their employees?

Donít you think world governments would have thought they could save themselves a lot of compensation payments and crashing economies by just ramping up grape seed extract production?

Then why the **** are you worried about other people and what they do? By calling people SHEEP, you are implying they shouldn't get the vaccine and therefore making it you business. From your own words, butt the **** out of other people's lives.

Oh, the irony that will be lost on Caroline13.

With just the tiniest bit of research, you will find that none of this is true. Your immunity to rational thought and common sense is astounding.

Zero jabs out of 10 on this one. Sad.

It's approved in Canada.
The approval argument is such BS. Maybe that was a semi-reasonable argument not to be first in line. I say "semi" as the vaccine had gone through trials and didn't present much of a health risk. But today, there isn't a good reason not to get the tiny prick. This vaccine hasn't gone through minor trials and been administered to a few hundred or even a few thousand people. It has been administered to two billion people with few problems. The worst thing that could happen seems to be that you might get a tiny fever.

Everything we do has risk associated with it.
And everything we don't has risk as well.

The question is what is the comparative risk of getting the vaccine or not getting the vaccine.

The risk of not getting vaccination is putting oneself and others in peril not just of dying but of suffering long term health problems.

Caroline is most likely going to get COVID. The Delta variant is highly contagious. Whether it is a minor inconvenience or if it will cause her to be hospitalized is unknown.

I'm sorry, but this is just laughable.

95% of the respondents to this poll have taken personal responsibility for their health by getting vaccinated. They have taken care of their immune systems by getting vaccinated. They run a drastically reduced risk of contracting a severe form of COVID-19 and passing it along.

On the other hand, shoveling down handfuls of literal waste product from the wine industry (I guess you could call it industrial waste) will not protect you from anything but having too much money in your bank account.

Tell me, if FDA approval is so important to you, when was grape seed extract approved and for what?

OTOH grape seed extract has not been approved by anyone.

It's truly no one's business what one chooses to do with their health decisions.,...and the millions of SHEEP that get the jabs, good lord.

There are ways to keep and stay healthy and it's not the RNA stuff flooded into one's body.

My grandkids are NOT worried so WHY are all the others worried, take care of YOURSELF I say. And if one does the jabs, what are they worried about????
I take PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for the health and welfare of my fellow human beings, by taking reasonable precautions to lessen the likelihood of passing on a serious virus. I think it is quite disgusting that we have posters here who do not.

Curious, do you personally have RNA in your body?

So, tell me, Caroline...are you and/or your grandchildren vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, chicken pox, etc? Or do you just let your 'immune systems' take care of those, too? How about when you get an infection? Do you just let your immune system take care of that for you?

Speaking of sheep, has it ever occurred to you that it's you and the other anti-Covid vaccine misinformation spreaders who are the sheep following lying idiots on conspiracy threads who have their own agenda and not the world's medical community? Even your Beloved Leader has been Covid vaccinated along with his family and urges you to be also. Think about that.

Nope, im not vaccinated. Probably will wait a good while longer as more studies and research is done before I make that plunge.

Out of curiosity, what will it take for you to be satisfied? What do 'studies and research' need to show that has not been demonstrated by now? When over 99% of people dying are unvaccinated and millions of people have been vaccinated with no one dying from it, I just have to wonder what more you need.

I suspect our correspondent is hoping for something that shows all us vaccinated people will die an early death. So s/he can "I told you so!" at us, and then get our stuff.

How is it that right wingers are suddenly claiming that the government has no right to tell them what to do with their own bodies?

By the way, this thread is titled 'Have you been vaccinated?", not "How can we talk one obvious troll into seeing the light?"

Is this person even listening to you? Forget it.

I notice that some of us, including myself, are at the point where we are publicly saying that we hope these idiots die. I see, and have said, the same about Trumpers in general.

I hope the right wingers are paying attention. The left are not a bunch of pushovers, they are human beings, and we know how nasty humans can get when pushed too hard. And we (if I may say "we") are growing increasingly frustrated and pissed off at the imbeciles we are forced to live amongst.

The right has nothing but hate and lies holding them together. They are weak cowards and they hope nobody notices that.
