Have you gotten the Covid-19 vaccine?

America has a history of medically "abusing" anything with DNA. Progress.

As for covid, says it right here,



Blacks and Latinos had a higher rate of access to hospitalization and died at a lower rate than expected probably because of it. Nothing systemic there. Lower health died the most. We can talk all day about systemic reasons for that lower health but some cultural adjustment to eating habits and higher rate of rules following would have negated that with ease.

Sorry Hubman, I'm calling non-starter on both of those.
Et Tu Brute :)

Two semi related articles, one discusses life expectancy decreases (1 year for US as a whole, and 2.7 years for Blacks), the other discussing historical atrocities visited upon communities of color which has some in that community fearful of getting the Covid vaccine (which looking at the first article, they should be running trying to be first in line).

As for needed cultural adjustments, can't argue with that. This is one of those discussions of generational curses we heave in my "neighborhood" giving up that slave diet we have passed down through the years.

You can always pick up an everyday diet from the old country of casava paired with plaintain fried in fat. ;) The French may have been horrible colonialist but at least they introduced the baquette to sop up the grease.

I suspect top dog does the best eating anywhere. Casava's poison and they go a make fat gravy to poor over it to make sure population numbers stay down. And like any poor peoples food you find it in the best restaurants called gourmet. smh.

Still haven't got one, beginning to think it is a scam.
It is, don't worry about it. I mean really, a shot to give you a disease to keep you from getting that disease? Who could believe in such a thing? They're injecting micro-chips in order to BETTER track us. Best you don't get it, you'll just be a black hole in the data stream. Presuming they didn't already get you a different way.

These foil underwear are itchy and it's hard to sneak out of the house but I'll be damned if I'm letting the guvment track ME!

In seriousness: I imagine there will be many, though a small percentage who will have a worse reaction to it than to the actual disease they may or may not ever get. I'll probably be one of them, sigh.

So, my wife is a medical professional and got hers a couple months ago. She has type AB blood and had a pretty strong reaction. She received Moderna in both doses. I am in my early 60's so my number is not yet up, however, I helped out as a volunteer at a vaccine POD this past Saturday where we administered over 3,400 doses. At the end of the day they had some left over so they allowed the volunteers to get their first dose. I am type O+ and received the Pfizer vaccine. I had no side affects what-so-ever. It appears that side affects are much more common with type A and AB blood types.

I am looking forward to getting my second dose.

Wife is getting hers on Thursday. We’ve had many friends that have gotten the shots with no issues.

I am not high on the totem pole of people needing the vaccine so I’ll gladly get it when my # is called. Unfortunately it likely won’t be until much later

Type O+ here, too. Got 1st shot today and no problem. Just bumped my arm a bit in that spot and felt that little "tingle" that others have mentioned.

As an aside, I have re-grown that two inches I have shrunk over the years. Will check for other changes tomorrow.

How many vaccines are thrown away daily?

I now have text with two friends that received that received the vaccine though they do not meet the current standards.

One received a call from her employer that told her they had vaccine that would not be used before the expiration time, so she went and got her first dose. Another friend just text me and told me that he got his first one today. He got a tip from someone that a location in southwest Ohio was throwing away vaccines daily as people don't show up. He said he waited an hour. During that time he counted 14 people that showed up for a shot.
