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?

if the people who are 'vaccinated' are still becoming 'infected' and are 'transmitting', what was the point?

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

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.

      Getting my second dose of Moderna in a couple weeks. This is perhaps the only benefit of being in the US now. Then I can go to one of the countries that allows vaccinated tourists. IMO, worth the wait.

       

      @Nasboroguy: The Chinese government has already admitted that their two vaccines are not as effective as they initially said. No big surprise. Now they are talking about mixing Sinopharm/Sinovac with Astrazeneca. Covid may be (barely) contained in China, but as long as the billions of people there haven't received an effective vaccine, the entire country will be at risk of continuous outbreaks such as Thailand is dealing with now. If you have access to an effective vaccine (there are a few including Pfizer, Moderna, and even Sputnik V) then I would just get it. Sure, the effectiveness will wane after a year or two, but that's what booster shots are for. Although I don't understand why people wouldn't want to get a vaccine, I respect their decision not to get it. As for myself, I feel as if a tremendous burden has been lifted and I can soon walk into a bar for a pint (just not in the US, haha).

      So they did not tell anybody that only 7 percent of cases worldwide are O negative patients, they also finally admitted in america that 78 percent of cases were obese patients. I have no health risks, O negative and slim again, so I will be passing on the vaccine. I have been around 17 cases of covid in a year and still walking the earth.

      To me, its kind of pointless ... what's done is done. Masks, distancing, lock-downs and what not ... scare about the disease itself. ..

       

      What was/is the real purpose? ... at masks and distancing, I had a thought in the beginning, it has to have to be something with the eyes and cameras, i.e. updating camera's software on individual recognizing through the iris scan ...

      Lock-downs, too. Deserted streets for the entire day should give a different pic to the satellites.

      Now, pandemic itself it might be pre-run for something more devastating, i.e. curbing of the population's growth in the near future is in the cards, IMO.

      I'm really interested in the field of psychedelic assisted therapy. I think it will be far bigger than anyone reaizes. Current treatment for depression, as well as most other disorders and diseases is a joke. The US is still in the dark ages when it comes to innovative medical treatments. But this next decade will usher in a medical rennaissance in Europe and Asia with cures for diseases we never thought possible.

      Forward Question

      Answer of the DayMORE >>
      A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
      A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
