My skepticism began after the “2 weeks to flatten the curve” turned into preventing anyone from ever getting sick or dying again. Here is a tiny sampling on one narrow topic of why I, an educated person with a bachelor’s degree in nursing, and over 20 years in healthcare, don’t buy into the rhetoric.
Me: We no longer recognize passive immunity, which is when a person develops immunity by becoming infected, then recovering from something.
Them: Oh, no, no. Immunity received the old fashioned way doesn’t last as long as the vaccine.
Me: Wait, why are we still calling it a vaccine anyway? According to the CDC, (please note the use of the word immunity)
“Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.”https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/imz-basics.htm
Them: It’s not going to be mandatory, conspiracy theorist!
Them: That’s not mandatory. You DO have a choice, you can find a different job.
Me: That’s not really a choice though, here is the definition of coercion.
"The intimidation of a victim to compel the individual to do some act against his or her will by the use of psychological pressure, physical force, or threats."
Them: Well, the only way to ‘End Covid’ is for everyone to get immunity from the shot.
Me: That’s just one incident.
Me: I can see where this is going, soon we will have to have papers to go places. (them: conspiracy theorist!)
Them: But, the variants!!!
Me: Yes, viruses mutate, and always have. Each new variant will have it’s moment in the spotlight, with more prevalence. That’s how and why they mutate. There will be more…
Them: The delta variant is killing people!
Me: Yes, no doubt, but so have other variants. For perspective look here and play with the data.
Everyone: Hospitalizations are going up!
Me: With people delaying having medical concerns addressed, and avoiding routine medical care last year, combined with Covid, yes, hospitals are super full. Did you know this happens every flu season, and news outlets and the public never cared before? I actually wrote an an entire blog on this point. Except in 2020 there was NO flu season. 😏
Everyone: But there are no beds!
Me: Some places are having to transfer patients, reduce elective surgeries, and frantically search for staff to hire. Some places have beds, but no staff to open the bed.
Them: I see. Let’s fire healthcare workers for not taking the shot.
Them: The shot protects people against getting it and they won’t spread it.
Them: If we all get antibodies and immunity, it will go away!
(Please scroll to top and repeat)
Them: All of you people should just die then. We have ideas to help. Also, we call kids we don’t agree with names. (Photo is the comment of a teacher in our school district and supporters)
These people should not be anywhere near children. But they are, and this is only one reason to pull your children from public schools. See our archives for more on this topic.
Is this about antibodies or compliance?
