The mRNA Covid vaccines still scare the hell out of me. I hope if you got it, you had no bad side effects and will be all right. It's still people's personal choice but the side effects being listed are very scary. I am old enough to remember when vaccine side effects were rare, this one they are almost telling people, "Oh you are supposed to be sick for some days". Why is that acceptable? But then why is it acceptable for young men to have heart attacks from this vaccine when they had very little risk from Covid to begin with? Why even take that gamble? It makes no sense.

I don't think even 20-30 years ago such intense side effects, numbers of deaths and injuries would have been accepted in any new medicine or treatment. The pro-corporates can make all the excuses in the world like all these deaths are statistically insignificant, but with all the censorship I've seen, I believe the numbers are far higher. It's not hard to find real people on message boards, telegram, and other venues discussing what is really happening. These people are to be believed. It's still weird to me that to be liberal today means totally trusting in mega-corporations. Yes some companies do make good medicine that works, I am on a lot of it. I do wish they had given us effective, decent, and safe vaccines like the majority of vaccines we have had before this time. I just don't believe these are. Sorry.
We all deserved better. American society has grown too corrupt for our achievements of the past. It definitely shows in all this. America should have demanded vaccines equal to the quality of our old ones. I wrote the Covid vaccines were low quality and that got some people's ire up, but it's my opinion take it or leave it.
It's also worrisome that anyone who questions these Covid vaccines is called an "anti-vaxxer". That's pissing me off, because it's not true. I supported other traditional vaccines and took them. It's these particular vaccines that people are worried about. I went to go hang out on this one pro-covid vaccine doctor's blog, and well when ad hominems rule, and one even reduced themselves to using toilet language, that told me something was really wrong. One guy presented some real arguments, explaining S proteins, while another just shouted "Anti-Vaxxer" at everyone. Give me a break.
I am noticing that things don't seem to be opening up either and that worries me. The vaccinated around here aren't even hanging out that much together. I live in a state with a very high rate of vaccination and it has not opened up anything.
A high school friend on FB had her Covid vaccines fail and has Covid pneumonia [officially diagnosed with both] and is in the hospital. She got both required shots and enough time has passed where it was past the time where they would have kicked in. I think people are afraid of the claimed 5% window of "breakthrough" cases. That didn't make me feel better about the Covid vaccines either.
I read scientific studies all the time. I know most assume people are ignorant who question the vaccines, they've done a good job propagandizing the idea that everyone who questions mRNA vaccines are a bunch of dumb hicks. It's simply not true.
