No one said you can't get COVID if you get the vax. You can still catch it, carry it, even have symptoms. But it lessens them and greatly reduces the risk of being hospitalized and needing to eventually be put on a respirator. It's like wearing a bullet proof vest to a gun fight. You can still get shot in the leg, but hopefully your vital organs are protected. Unless you get shot in the face.
your body will still recognize it quicker and start fighting it sooner. We had 5 of 6 people get Covid on a Friday and by Sunday symptoms started for some and the others had symptoms by Monday/Tuesday. Nobody had it get into their lungs and develop a covid cough. It stayed in our sinuses. We were all vaxed. One Started symptoms that Friday, I assume he was the spreader.
there and it is free. Get it and save your life. Or don't get it. Your choice. Everyone else, get on with your lives. Yes, you will be exposed to the virus but your risks of serious illness or death are quite low if you're vaccinated or have had COVID."
Because as am employer I phukking hate the burden, both practically and emotionally, this is continuing to have.
and people with other illnesses need help - it is affecting others.
Had a friend, wife has Rheumatoid Arthritis and it affects her breathing, she is vaccinated as is her husband, unfortunately, she gets Covid and having significant breathing issues. Turned away from AnMed in Anderson as they were too full in ER, so they had to go to Oconee Hospital for help.
The immune system has to recognize a virus before it can respond and eliminate it. A vaccine isn't going to make it so your body immediately sees something and kills it the very second you come into contact with it.
Compare it to having a gun in your home for protection. Let's say you keep your gun upstairs with you in your bedroom and someone breaks into your home downstairs in the middle of the night. You hear the noise downstairs, grab your gun and then go and deal with the person who broke into your home. The gun helps you minimize the damage done by the intruder, but the in intruder still caused damage to your door when he broke in and he also knocked over and broke a few things you had on a table near the door.
Would the conclusion be that guns don't work to protect your home since someone was still able to break in and cause a little damage anyway? Or do guns work because it saved your home from further damage, saved more of your personal belongings, and potentially saved the lives of you and your family?
Let's take it a step further and say the homeowner grabs his gun when he hears the noise, but the intruder manages to come into the room and shoots the homeowner before the homeowner can fire a shot in self-defense. Would that mean guns don't work? I think we all acknowledge that having a gun for home defense doesn't make it 100% impossible that someone can cause you harm, but most would agree that it certainly helps in reducing the chances of it.
6 in my office all got it the same day. One was over 65 and got it in March they rest got vaccinated in April/May. None of us have comorbidities except the 65 year old.
Did the vaccine lose effectiveness against infection or did it never have it against delta? Certainly nobody is studying this with a proper study because no study will have a control group with a saline shot any more.
