Q: Are you getting Vaccinated???

Have you gotten vaccinated? 

 

Personally, I am hoping not to get one. I am holding out in the hopes that once Asian countries open their borders, I can travel without one. With the near nonexistence of Covid in China, and a cure that is 99.7% effective, I see no need to take a risk on unproven, possibly ineffective vaccines. 

 

Your thoughts?

Your 2nd weblink is meant to be this one, I guess:

... or-rrr, this one:

 

https://www.globalresearch.ca/coronavirus-causes-effects-real-danger-agenda-id2020/5706153

Global Research is full of articles on 'vaccine-bad'.

Stiggs:

I googled the two websites and got a lot of hits saying basically the same thing...

 

https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/global-research/

 

"Overall, we rate GlobalResearch a Tin Foil Hat Conspiracy and Strong Pseudoscience website based on the promotion of unproven information such as the dangers of Vaccines and 9-11 as a false flag operation."

 

Believe what you want people but be wary of your sources.

sorrel:

if the people who are 'vaccinated' are still becoming 'infected' and are 'transmitting', what was the point?
(other than virtue-signalling)

I'm happy to be in the 'placebo' group of unvaccinated, to eat healthy, exrecise etc as a comparison.

China's batting 50% ?  I'll pass on the Vacc, even though the school offered it a couple of times here,,,,  and Director told me China staff Had to get it,, or get fired....  he was a bit pissed,,,  but he also knew/knows how the game is played...   He also made it sound like in a little while the school would stop 'asking' me to get it, and start 'telling' me to get it,,,  well,,,  cross that bridge when I get there...

Some of my colleagues are getting it.  Some elderlies from my neighborhood have done it. 

I heard some places and companies are forcing people to take it then the media are saying no you shouldn't force it onto people, as this is by no means a mandate.

For me I'm not travelling nowhere this couple years so I won't be taking any vaccine.

https://edition.cnn.com/2021/01/17/asia/sinovac-vaccine-asia-efficacy-in...

 

But the rollouts come despite a growing number of questions over the effectiveness of the shot, which last week was revealed to have an efficacy rate of just 50.38% in late-stage trials in Brazil -- significantly lower than earlier results showed. That rate only barely crosses the 50% efficacy threshold as set by the World Health Organization, and far lower than the 78% previously announced to much fanfare in China earlier this month.

    The apparent discrepancy has led to concern among some scientists, and shaken international confidence in Chinese-made vaccines.

      "Since many countries are planning to order, or have already ordered Sinovac's vaccines, it might undermine people's willingness to take them, because people may question the usefulness of the vaccines," said Yanzhong Huang, a senior fellow for global health at the US based Council on Foreign Relations and expert on the Chinese health care system. "It could be a potential stumbling block.

       

      https://www.dw.com/en/coronavirus-how-effective-are-the-chinese-vaccines...

      Paradoxically, China is actually procuring vaccines from BioNTech-Pfizer via the company Fosun Pharma. There are many indications that the Chinese government is using this media campaign to deflect criticism over the lack of transparency about its own vaccine manufacturers, possibly because its own development is not delivering the desired results.
