How long until you all admit the vaccines do nothing except create more variants and make money for the politicians? Sad bunch of sheep

Whilst the Lemmings throw themselves off the cliff of disinformation and denial, the rest of us will continue to be held hostage to the dogma of the unenlightened ( anti vax idiots).

Ian, thankfully there are sane non-cliff-throwers like yourself who run and get multiple injections because they don't want to catch a runny nose or an itchy throat. They still get the runny nose and itchy throat though, and possibly worse. Very sensible and enlightened.

I would like to correct a piece of misinformation. Lemmings do not throw themselves off cliffs. They were pushed by a Disney Film crew to create dramatic pictures. It has however nothing to do with their natural behaviour.
Still, I did believe this myth myself without questioning it but it is easy to check the facts and correct this misbelief. The same is true for vaccines. There research is out there and verifiable/falsifiable.
If sceptics were true sceptics, why don't they crowdfund a lab and test everything themselves. Watching Youtube clips and reading Facebook posts may be part of but simply are not actual research.

Yes the Anti-Vax Idiot Team is alive but maybe not well in the future without protection. The SCIENTISTS that perform real testing in labs and studying people AROUND THE WORLD have the same consensus; Delta variant is not through with us YET. After your first 2 jabs the vax has disseminated to a lack of protection of 40% after 5 months (Israel, first to eradicate original Covid) so yes Latoysha, THEN the vax isn't really working for you and YOU NEED A BOOSTER to get back to the 90-92% protection so don't make statements you CAN'T verify and mislead vulnerable people like yourself; THAT is disinformation. Your government is trying to PROTECT YOU and curb the spread, DO YOUR RESEARCH with DD! Yes Ian and Thomas, you are sooo right, a bullet point from U-tube, Fox News here in US or on the unregulated cesspool of lies on Facebook and people think they are experts! I read medical journals and listen to news from scientists in many countries before I put an observation in print so as not to mislead anyone. Because of people who are so easily led by a blurb and too lazy to do any real research, refuse to wear masks and get vaxed, we will be years with these mutations. As for the "Flu" argument conspiracy theorists constantly allude to, people died because they DIDN'T get the vaccine. Thanks guys for setting the record straight; these 2 ladies need to do their homework and lose the attitude that spreads disinformation and endangers good people.

Viruses deserve a life too!! Just like mosquitoes and tics. If everyone was vaccinated the virus may go extinct. I pine for smallpox and polio(almost gone).
