    But my friend heard from a chick down at 7 eleven whose brother is related to one of Ferris Buellers neighbours, and he got the vaccine and died!
    But seriously, good post, thanks

    Heresay is way better research and evidence than actually studying and being knowledgeable in a topic.

    Yes, more important than Coronavirus vaccines, save the whale (and all the cetaceans).

    Hey, I have a graduate and two undergrad degrees. I did take some biology classes. I also took constitutional law, criminal law, and societal law. I am not an attorney - if only I had pursued that route, I could delve into unchartered legal advice.

    As a "not a biologist," I do know that an mRNA vaccine has never been fully approved by the FDA. The two we have now are experimental vaccines given only emergency use authorization. The test subject pool was small, and only healthy individuals were allowed to participate. Now, side effects are already presenting in the general population: Bell's palsy, anaphylaxis, etc. While Bell's palsy is not of major concern, anaphylaxis can be lethal. I think I will wait on taking the vaccine, as approximately 60% of healthcare workers are doing, until the new round of Gineau pigs give us more insight.

    It's spelled "guinea pigs." And how many instances of Bell's palsy and anaphylaxis can be attributed directly to the vaccine in people who have no history of allergic reactions?

    The nurse that fainted on TV has a history of fainting when stabbed with needles. I myself am a needle-phobe and I have to sit or lie down when receiving an injection or having blood drawn.

    The doctor who had an anaphylactic reaction has a history of such reactions, and this is why he was quick an an epi pen. Because of the adjuvants used in the vaccines and their propensity to trigger anaphylactic reactions in people who are prone to them, they do carry warnings for staff to monitor recipients for anaphylactic reactions prior to discharging them.

    The Kaiser foundation also found that the percentage of healthcare workers hesitant about taking the vaccine is around 29 percent (1). Many of them are nurses. Nurses are experts in their field, but their field is primary care. It is not the development of biological agents.

    Will the 2021 Apple Watch 7 have Covid detection?
    That all we need to know.

    Maybe we could bring back polio and smallpox too. Would that make you happier?

    That would actually be a good idea considering the testing lag seem to still be about six days. Or essentially useless. lol

    Does it seriously take 6 days for you to get a test result? That’s a huge problem.

    Under 24 hours here. Last results in my family were under 12 hours.

    It actually varies lots here in northern Michigan. 24 hour tests seem to be scarce but I have heard of some people getting them. I just had a co-worker take a test Tuesday which just came back negative today- so that's four days; of course it's technically a holiday week but still...it's not very useful when you need to wait that long. I have to question the results a bit too since he subsequently became ill on Thursday.

    Bollocks sums up an upstart medic at graduation. By this time he knows he's destined to a life of charlatanism..

    Looking for something I don't remember what.
    No, bollocks is a language used by people that try to justify their own opinions by using sources that are, at least, questionable.
    It can be found lurking within any language and is the opposite of fact.
