    If Trump had been smart, he would have had all his oompah loompahs buying MAGA masks for $25 a piece.

    I got my first dose of the Moderna vaccine this afternoon. While I was filling out the paperwork at the pharmacy window a non-mask-wearing idiot purchased something at the register there and then called me a “sheeple” as he left.

    That kind of behavior is really unfortunate. Haven’t seen that in our town but mask use is down amongst 30 somethings but seems higher amongst the old folks at Walmart.

    Sent a while doing regular visits to the Brides of Dracula aka phlebotomy dept. for them to take blood samples - needle well in excess of a sixteenth - does this mean I have been filled up with chips.


    On a different topic - with a death rate of only about 1% of cases and only half of the R voters refusing the vaccine one would expect only around a 0.5% swing in poll results. This may not be enough.

    You'd think these deniers would've by now seen the virus victims recovering from the stint in the ICU and on the ventilator, or the surviving members of their families, pleading with their cohort to take it seriously.

    I encourage all believers in QAnon to stoutly resist vaccination and not to wear a mask in public.

    Of course, this is on the basis that since the disease is all fake news they will not accept treatment should they develop those imaginary symptoms.

    They'll be the first to start demanding medical treatment while denying it. As soon as they get it, they'll complain about it.

    I don't think it's really about thinking or taking a stand. It's more about overwhelming peer pressure. If *everyone* around you is shouting at you not to take that shot. it's very hard to go against it. And if they are shouting loudly and violently enough, you won't notice there are only a few of them, while the rest is awfully quiet. Sure, some are political motivated and/or plain stupid, but a lot of people are simply being bullied into not taking the vaccine. (I think)

    just my 2c.

    Seems to me about 70% of Republicans have been taken in by Trump, leaving 30% who are upset with this happening.

    The only way they can change this, IMO, is to VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS IN EVERY ELECTION. That will act like a vaccine for the party.
    Now he's gone. If only he'd be forgotten.

    I've three medical professionals in my immediate family, all say, "get the jab, get the jab, get the jab".

    While NZ has a historically high vaccination rate for the likes of MMR, Tetanus and so on we do have a small percentage of anti vaccination people, and there is a quiet, non confrontational but very persistent education program being run by the Dept of Health to improve that.

    One of my pt's in yesterday had his mask on haphaz - and only because we require it, in order to be seen. And so, of course, I quizzed him. "It's not real. The vaccine isn't safe. Even Fauci says that masks don't help'. You know - the usual litany. And of course - as I do on the internet when somebody is wrong - I refuted each and every comment. Asked 'where'd you get your info'? 'Same place as you do, doc'. 'I don't think so!'

    And I pointed out - 1) Fauci never said masks don't work and 2) his comments, over a year ago (which this yahoo is spouting) were to conserve masks for front-line providers. Doesn't understand or doesn't GAD that 'science changes with new info'. There are, simply, simple folk with an agenda and for whom facts are optional.
