COVID is back and we’re all going to die or something.
I’m going to be honest with you. If the CDC and others treated the flu and pneumonia the same as COVID then all of these messages wouldn’t bother me.
But they don’t, so, screw you, CDC.
Why not push for people to get the flu shot and those over 65 and with weak immune systems to get their pneumonia shot?
But nooooo. It’s COVID (emphasis mine):
CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect against the potentially serious outcomes of COVID-19 illness this fall and winter. Updated COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna will be available later this week.
Vaccination remains the best protection against COVID-19-related hospitalization and death. Vaccination also reduces your chance of suffering the effects of Long COVID, which can develop during or following acute infection and last for an extended duration. If you have not received a COVID-19 vaccine in the past 2 months, get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect yourself this fall and winter.
The virus that causes COVID-19 is always changing, and protection from COVID-19 vaccines declines over time. Receiving an updated COVID-19 vaccine can restore protection and provide enhanced protection against the variants currently responsible for most infections and hospitalizations in the United States. Last season, those who received a 2022-2023 COVID-19 vaccine saw greater protection against illness and hospitalization than those who did not receive a 2022-2023 vaccine. To date, hundreds of millions of people have safely received a COVID-19 vaccine under the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history.
I was told the first vaccine was magic and would keep me safe from COVID forever and ever. Biden told me it would go away.
The lies, paranoia, and panic did this. If they treated it like it is, a cold or even flu-like, then it wouldn’t be a problem, at least to me.
I mean, if you saw my Quick Hit in the newsletter the other day, you saw that I had to take a quick COVID test for a freaking virtual doctor visit. It’s insanity. It’s been almost four years.
The doctor didn’t have an answer when I asked why they don’t ask about flu, pneumonia, or even strep.
I’m not getting a COVID vaccine. The rest of the family is not getting a COVID vaccine. Them pushing it like crazy, making it so fast, and insisting on it gives me paranoia.
I will get my flu shot. The whole family gets flu shots, especially since I’m vulnerable. Thankfully, my pneumonia shot is still up-to-date. Also, I need a shingles shot!DONATE
