Here's the thing. When the mask mandate is no longer there and the government's priority is no longer to push mass vaccinations. These fucking morons are going to think that they won because they've changed the minds of everyone including government. The COVID was, in fact, a giant hoax/conspiracy.

It isn't because the rest of us took the vaccine and took this shit seriously but because they through their efforts has woke all of us.

This 100%

As I've said before, I'm not online posting about vaccine efficacy, or making attempts to persuade doubters online. I got vaccinated, and that's my decision.

Why do these folks feel the need to constantly post the idea of not getting vaccinated, or doubting the vaccine's efficacy, etc? You don't want one, then don't get one, we're already @ 70% vaccinated in BC. Fill your fucking boots if you don't want one.

I received a lot of msgs on my post, mostly positive, though I had a few acquittances I got into arguments with. Their main argument is herd immunity, and that COVID is the "flu", malaria is far worse, yadda yadda.

These arguments are all completely irrelevant. In order to travel to most countries, there will be requirements that you are vaccinated, plain and simple. You can't fight the system, you are merely delaying the inevitable.

You try arguing about COVID being the "flu" with customs when you try to land in Thailand without a vaccine, I wish you the best of luck

Saw this news article yesterday, and it made me wonder what might be going through the person's thick head:


Anti-vaxxer sheriff's deputy dies from COVID-19 complications shortly after mocking the vaccine on Facebook

They're deniers. There's countless posts and experiences that healthcare workers have posted about people in the COVID ward and people that have died from COVID.

The vast majority of the anti-vaxxers and deniers continue to deny even on their death bed. Their families also deny that it's COVID that killed them.

Not the fairest of comparisons when these are all very well known drugs that have proven track records over decades. With that said though there are now lawsuits being filed in multiple countries whose governments gave their soldiers Mefloquine as an anti-malarial. A fully accredited and approved drug. Modern medicine is a very wonderful thing but they don't always get it 100% right. Being an all-inclusive aNtI-vAxXeR is one thing but someone being hesitant about taking the first mRNA vaccines ever used en masse in humans, rushed for this strain of coronavirus, and only approved for emergency use isn't deserving of being chastised. Their body, their choice.

These people are asinine.
I get the sentiment comparing the shit people put in their body, but, this is a false statement. These drug makers have zero liability for any lack of efficacy, side effects, injury, or death caused by their drugs. That is unless it's proven there was willful ignorance. They are still open to civil suit if they mislead, are fraudulent, or hide information to which I say have fun Googling how many billions of dollars in fines these exact pharmaceutical companies have paid for doing just that. Canada had no Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund (only G7 nation not to) up until a few months ago and odds are it'll be a nightmare to get any compensation out of the government for those people who've had serious complications.

Because they're desperate to be smarter than everyone else. At least that's my view of the ones I've come across, who most certainly are not very bright people.

aren't we at 50+%? I don't think 70.

When people say it's the flu, I say this flu can fucking kill you. Which one would you prefer? Don't feel well for a few days or die? I didn't even bother explaining the complications after recovery.

That was the first thought that went through my mind when I saw the picture.

Is it supposed to be a good thing to show they are an anti-vaxxer or meant to be badge of shame but she looked proud to be an anti-vaxxer.

That being said, I've been going into the office at work because everyone else has been WFH.
Today, a few other ppl came in and one of them said she will be the first in line at the border when the borders reopen so she can drive to Sea-Tac to fly to San Diego so she can get her freak on and then come back and not have to quarantine.

I think it is time I look for a new job.

After witnessing both ends of the covid cringe carnival, I just stopped giving a fuck what anyone's thoughts and opinions were. Once vaccines came out, I knew things would gradually improve from where we were.

I can't imagine immersing myself in the daily tripe that social media whips at me like turds fresh out the baboon's behind. I learned in like 1998 not to argue with people over the Internet

Then again, I only have Facebook and that's just because of Marketplace though I'm considering making an account just for that. I've purchased things from people who have made those accounts and so far, I haven't been murdered despite my life feeling purgatory-esque lately...

Sounds like she'll still have to quarantine, but not because of covid.

Dr B's Covid update:


199 new cases for June 3rd.


Dr. Bonnie reiterates that people can take either the messenger RNA, MRNA vaccines Pfizer or Moderna as a second shot if people had A Z as the first shot.

She said that B.C. has plenty of vaccine available.

As an alternative, people can also take a second shot of A Z too.

Honestly if I got AZ I’d probably stick to AZ

We’ll see when the time comes but I feel like as of now if I don’t get the same shot I received first round (Moderna) I’ll probably walk.

Watching Theresa Tam fumble through a press conference about mixing and the extremely limited testing done with mixing doses doesn’t exactly enstill confidence in me. I’m not anti-vac or anything close to that but say in 1/2/10 years there a problem with one or the other or other long term effects arise, I’ll take my chances with a single manufacturer rather than exposing myself to the potential risk of mixing them.

The mRNA vaccines are based on the same principle, but they arrive at their end product in a different way. Also the Moderna is far less concentrated than Pfizer. Whether that means anything or not, I can’t say. But given my health status and having had the first shot, I kinda feel like I’ve been part of the “pilot project” enough at this point.

Also you may want to consider if travelling to other countries what "fully vaccinated" means to them. Is it 2 doses of the same vaccine? Or will they accept a mix-and-match?

^^ this

i think despite my willingness to take whatever is recommended this will be what pushes me to stick w the same AZ dose.

frustrating though.

"trust the science - follow medical advice from doctors. don't listen to conspiracy theorists and confirmation bias"

ok - what should I go with?

"you'll have to make that decision for yourself"

like - based on what? I'm not an expert in this subject - nor do I wish to be. that's literally her job



my accountant pulls that shit too. now I corner him into telling me what he would do in my position - which is exactly what DBH should be doing.

By now you would think people should have the fucking decency to cover their face when they sneeze in PUBLIC. I went for a quick run after work around the elementary school near my place, this fucking CHINESE guy (not being racist in any way shape or form here - I myself being Asian), sticks his fucking head out his car window and decides to sneeze twice. Are people that fucking stupid still....

I’ll be sticking with AZ. Been a month for me, I assume I will be contacted when I have a spot available?

And yeah if it’s forced mixing, I’d rather just stick with my one dose
