I got in pretty early for my age (early April) when the VA opened it up to all vets a few weeks before the state did.

Got ours back in Feb-Mar or Mar-Apr, I forget. And I started this same poll several weeks ago, but didn't mention politics.

I was going to put out that there is no Planet X option, but those last two kind of are the Planet X option.

Making it about politics seems rather silly to me. But to each their own.
It is not a "political" issue. That only happens in the third world of the USA.

It shouldn't be a political issue but it certainly is. Trump and the Republicans made it one.

Proof of this is the in the pudding.

The top 21 States that have been fully vaccinated voted for Biden as President.

The bottom 15 States all went to Trump.

Everything is political. In a post-fact world what but political tribalism is there to fill the void?

Everyone covered; viva science.





Impossible wish
The social contract that evolved to allow the Neolithic Revolution, so-called, to proceed and give birth to modern civilization needs codifying, as the need for tacit social agreements and arrangements remains, yet this is either ignored or poo-pooed, lost in the hub-bub and rush; viz, society and rules, or stone axes that away, out yonder. If "to each his own" -- savage and doing "whatever it takes", instead of civilized and admitting of reasoned compromise -- then each with his own; modern, or naked and steppe- or cave-dwelling.

I have been vaccinated for a few months now. My son, a paramedic/fire fighter, was the first in the family to get the shots. He has several sad stories about those he treated with covid. For those who were dying, my sons face was the last thing they saw.

My other son is vaccinated. His 3 children, ages 14 and 12 are vaccinated, and Gianna, almost 7 yrs, will receive hers in the Fall, before she goes back to school.

One cousin has died of covid, and my sister caught it while in the hospital, but recovered.

I still wear a mask outside while shopping. I didn't go to the big 4th of July barbeque and potluck party we have here, because those who won't be vaccinated and won't wear masks would be all seated together.

I don't feel paranoid, I feel reasonable and cautious. I don't feel it is time yet to lower my guard.

I've no pressing need. I don't mill about in public, in between delivery and curbside, I don't even really shop in public any more. I work from home, alone, so my exposure is quite limited.

I'm likely to wait until September or October if they force me back into the office around that timeframe.

Unless we travel back in time and erase US opposition to the Soviet Union, the US will always be first world.

Because the cold war is over, it is impossible for any third world country to cease being third world.

I kind of understand this.

I have trouble keeping appointments and preferred the ability to just do it on the fly somewhere. Turns out this is easy. I went to Walmart for some basic food shopping and as I was walking by the Pharmacy I noticed a big sign that said Make your vaccination apportionment here. I went to the counter and asked if I could get the vaccine right then. The answer was yes. It took much longer to fill out the form.
And it didn't hurt at all. In fact I didn't know he did it.
15 minutes tops

I've since asked at least five different pharmacies including the one at Safeway if they could give me the vaccine at that moment. Everyone said they could have it done in the next 10 minutes.

Git er done.

Yeah, when I had my second dose the county health center had basically thrown open their doors and were taking walk ins as of that day, and that was a couple of months ago.

Your exposure may be limited, but you are still exposed. As ACbytesla said, you can just walk into most pharmacies and get it right away. "I'll get around to it sometime" could be the worst mistake you ever make. And the last.

Try a key or bobby pin. These are the only true tests. Don't be fooled by fake commiesocialist science that says any ferromagnetic metals will work.

Yes and the Delta variant is 3 times as deadly. Don't wait. There is no need or credible excuse anymore.

I got the J&J back in late April.

My wife works in a hospital, same with my daughter. They both got it in late Feb, early March. The pharmacy next to the KFC my son used to manage came over and gave them all shots because they were about to expire one day. Out of the blue.

So far my whole family is vaccinated, we haven't lost anyone, and I only know of a handful of people that have gotten it.

Yes. Brough back memories of my first day in US Army Basic training, where you get whole battery of shots.

One of my earliest memories is from when I was 4 years old and we were being sent to Germany by the AF: 12 shots in 2 days. I can remember kicking the med tech who came at me with one needle too many, and running down the hall with him and my mom chasing after me.

When I took basic, they had you strip naked,on the first day of basic, and it was two shots in the left arm, two in the right arm, and, for a grand finale in the butt.
Then they told you to throw away your underwear, you would not need them anymore, and you got your first issue of Army Underwear....

I'll match you shot for shot Stacy. I spent 6 months in the hospital when I was 8. They gave me a shot almost every day and sometimes multiple shots in a day. What I hate is when they drew blood or did a spinal tap. Trust me when I say you never want to get one of those..

I will gladly let you keep that record, AC! I've never had a spinal tap and hope never to. At 67, I've never had a serious illness and only one surgery (gall bladder) almost 10 years ago. Fingers crossed it stays that way.

When my husband had thyroid cancer about 15 years ago, he got about 20 needle biopsies in one sitting into his thyroid. Then, of course, there were the 3 surgeries with all those shots. Now he has another kind of cancer that requires a lot of blood tests etc. Needles don't even phase him any more.

The more needles you have had stuck in you, the less it bothers you. I think it's harder and easier on children. Kids are much more touch sensitive. It's also scarier. But kids also adapt better than adults.

Does this help answer your question? The CPAC audience cheered when it was mentioned that the country failed to meet the July 4th vaccination goal.

And I've been castigated for calling Trump supporters idiots. I will continue to do so because they are.

Astounding, but at the same time not surprising. These days, in the US EVERYTHING is political. Even matters of public health and life and death. Mind boggling to see both the dept--and the rapidity--of the descent into madness.

Oh, and I just got my first jab yesterday (Moderna). Sore deltoid today. I delayed it because my health card had expired (used just once for a clinic visit to get a tenacious bit of grit out of an eye) and I'd lost track of time w.r.t. its expiration.

Door to Door Gestapo Is Coming..... Not to MY DOOR.

We might as well be in China and/or North Korea

https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-07-...rantines.html#

Vit C, Vit D, Zinc, Quercetin, Grape Seed Extract does the job.

Not the poison MRNA bullroar. More and more deaths reported and injuries in each VAERS report every week.

I hope you will report your injuries to VAERS when the time arrives.

You're in the wrong thread. You want the Crazy Right Wing Conspiracy Theories thread. If you were to post this POS 'news source' on FB or Twitter, you'd get hit with a "spreading false information" suspension.

"Government document instructs vaccine “strike force” teams how to clear buildings, violate trespass laws and flag anti-vaxxers for forced quarantines"

Yeah, Caroline, because non-governmental volunteers going to underserved communities to help people get vaccinated if they choose to is just so Third Reich. Amirite?

Well done Caroline, you've managed to keep up your 100% record of being wrong AND your 100% record of using sources known to lie.

Nope....volunteers, like he said. Do you have a reading problem?

Look out, Caroline! Those baby eating, Satan worshipping Dems are coming to your house to take your BIBLE AND GUNS after they put you in cuffs and forcibly shoot a microchip loaded EXPERIMENTAL vaccine into your veins that makes you MAGNETIC!!
