Dude this is not how vaccinations work, I refer you to my earlier point: they aren't magic. You can't keep criticizing the idea of vaccination if you aren't sure how they are supposed to work. They are immune system enhancers. They are not 100% prevention. They are basically prophylactics.. or maybe a better analogy is IUDs. Do they work almost every time? yes, but in some cases they do not. In some cases, installing the IUD goes wrong and hurts the patient.
i know how vaccines work, I know they are not 100%, but you are making my point for me...shaming people for not wanting to get a vaccine because YOUR vaccine 'only' has a 98% of chance of working against a virus with a 99.9% survival rate is ludicrous.
everyone has their own risk tolerance and assessment, projecting your own on everyone else is where I have a problem.
now I am done for real.
I'm not shaming people. I'm shaming you, because you are conclusively talking about something you aren't understanding and pushing people away from what the correct answer should be.
I was just chiding others who are pro-vax for attacking people when they couldn't explain **** either.. but you are just like them on the other side. Both of you are obstacles towards understanding diseases & vaccinations, as well as obstacles toward legitimate public safety.
So let me explain even in the short sentences above where you are wrong:
- vaccines are far closer to 100% than the survival rate of COVID. You simply don't understand what they do. They are boosters. In that way, they are almost always effective. They aren't a cure, or they'd be called a cure
- again, survival rate is a crutch for the ignorant. Explained this already. 3rd time you're citing it. Why? What part of what I said before is not sticking?
- projecting your own lack of critical thinking onto others (IE - choosing not to get the vax) is absolutely the other people's business because they have the right to know whether or not you choose to do something that could potentially hurt them. If individual rights are so damn important, the vaccinated people should have the right to know when someone is choosing to potentially put them in danger, and thus assess their own risk of whether or not being around them is worth it.
I'm shaming these clowns...I don't care.
This is the same idiotic stuff that says "let me smoke in the diner - it's my body". And then they go on to increase health care costs for us all because they suddenly don't want to die of lung cancer.
