Gang,

I just received this from a friend. The guy who sent this is well-read, urbane and thoughtful...and aged enough not to hop on every myth-laced dream that the COVID vaccine is, automatically, a panacea.

The CDC just released this information on August 4th about the Covid vaccines. They now believe the vaccines could be responsible for the Covid variants. In other words, the persons that received the vaccine are somewhat immune, but they could essentially be super spreaders, because of no longer wearing masks, and because the vaccine caused Covid to mutate!

I ran this by my surgeon. He said that he saw the headline, but didn't have time to read the article. But he believes it's very possible. That's when he said he thought it best if I abstained from getting the vaccine.....especially right now.

Depending on the region, and which vaccine you received, vaccinated people are among 1/3 to 1/2 of the new Covid cases. That shouldn't be happening. Something is not right here! Wear your mask until this is past. Nobody should be getting Covid after receiving the vaccine, much less dying, like my Cousin did. Yes he was diabetic, but why is it that we should be content with that happening. You should not die from receiving a vaccine.....diabetic or not! It was extremely rare with previous flu's for that to occur. Much more prevalent now!


Like it or not, there's still much more that we don't know than we know about COVID.

You know the choices I've made and I have no regrets but I'm humble enough to still have doubts.

    I call bullshit. Where is this alleged CDC report? Link please.


  2. by HatetheSwamp on August 6, 2021 2:02 pm

    No link came with the note but I know this guy to be truthful.

    And, of course, we know that vaccinated people do catch COVID.

    I was calling bullshit on your claim that you have a well-read, urbane and thoughtful friend.

    There is no such report at the CDC's website.

    Donna,
    Shocking, no? Maybe HtS can contact his friend for a link to this alleged article.

    Btw, I thought of your son, who I believe is driving for Uber. Uber and Lyft announced vaccine mandates for all their drivers.

    I miss reading what Ponderer is up to. Hope she's well. I read that Uber and Lyft prices are way up due to a shortage of drivers and more people flying and needing a ride from the airport.

    I have a note into my friend axing for a link.


  7. by Donna on August 7, 2021 12:40 am
    I didn't know that, Curt.

    I'm glad they invoked that. It'll be interesting to see how my son reacts.

    Sheri's still working at the sign shop. Generally speaking she's doing well. I'll let her know that you asked about her, Curt.

    Uber and Lyft's vaccination requirement is for office workers, not drivers.

    Donna,
    Oh, it's for Uber and Lyft office workers. Not so impressive. I should have double checked before reporting that. I saw on TV a list of companies mandating vaccines for their workers.

    Another reason I still am reluctant to travel.

    HtS,
    Did your friend ever give you the link for that CDC story? Not much of a friend if he won't. Tell him you will drop him unless he comes through.


  11. by Donna on August 7, 2021 8:14 am
    HtS's friend is unwittingly disseminating disinfo.

    My dad, who was intelligent, analytical, and earned a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Johns Hopkins, disseminated easily debunkable disinformation about Obama during the last 7 years of his life. Much of it was so ridiculous that common sense should have told him it wasn't true. It was sad for me to watch that happen to my dad, as well as his physical decline.

    I doubt that Uber or Lyft will ever mandate that their drivers be vaccinated. Most of their drivers are on the young side, which is the demographic that's most resistant to getting vaccinated. Such a requirement would probably cause their number of drivers to plummet, which would decrease Uber's and Lyft's profits.


  13. by Curt Anderson on August 7, 2021 10:24 am
    Donna,
    Uber and Lyft could follow Yelp's lead and make vaccinated driver or not an option for customers. I would certainly prefer a vaccinated driver. I bet a lot of people would.


  14. by Donna on August 7, 2021 12:05 pm
    That would be a good compromise.

    Those people who are NOT living wisely are the anti-vaxxers and those who refuse to wear a mask. They are not only a danger to themselves but are a danger to others including many of those who are living wisely, so we will continue to work to get the truth out there. This is not as you say “hysteria over Covid”. And we are beginning to get that message out there (vaccination numbers are rising again) despite your and others like you who are trying to minimize the danger this virus poses.

    Few hysterical people have the self-awareness to know that they are hysterical.

    And, isle, I fully appreciate the danger of the virus. I have been and AM scrupulous in mask wearing and I got the vaccine as soon as I was able...just like you, I'm certain.

    The difference between us, apart from your hysterica, is that I am able to remember that we live in a nation with a Bill of Rights. And, I respect my fellow citizens.

    If I owned a business and the government didn't allow me to bar entrance to someone I have a concrete reason to think could endanger the lives of my patrons, how would that not be tyranny?
