The FDA recommended a booster shot for people 65 and older and those at high risk. That's not the general population.

If you want to stay around and discuss issues, feel free. But much like in the political thread, your habit of dropping by to make a snarky attempt at misinformation or a feeble gotcha try are not really welcome at all. Consider this the last post I make to you about these issues.

Guess what . . . not vaccinated . . . It's almost like there's some kind of connection between being unvaxed and dying from COVID:

Not taken out of context, it was intentionally misrepresented. Xsicx Knows exactly what he's doing.

Mother-in-law got her booster Saturday. She's 70 with quite a few health issues. Glad she was able to get that done.

Happy to hear about the data for 5-11. Looking forward to getting our 8 year old vaccinated. We kept her in virtual school this semester, but she can't wait to go back to school. If they issue an EUA and she can get her first dose in late Oct or early November, she'll be on track to go back to school next semester. Then hopefully by the end of the year we can get the baby (currently 4 months) vaccinated.

One of the first things I thought of.

Others already responded to you but let me take a crack.

First of all, Wilt's dad is over 65 and in the vulnerable population who are now eligible for the shot. So absolutely nothing wrong or inappropriate here. If anything, you should being saying congratulations for following the CDC guidelines and wishing Wilt's dad well.

Secondly, here's something you should know:

Scientists following the facts and scientific data and forming opinions based on that data IS EXACTLY HOW IT'S SUPPOSED TO WORK. See, rational people don't make stuff up then stubbornly stick that opinion no matter what the facts say.

When there is more scientific data to justify a change in opinion about who else should get the booster, then he will update his opinion to reflect the facts.

Again, this is called REASONING and it is something that should be commended and aspired to.

The fact that you thought posting this was some kind of "gotcha" basically exposes your complete ignorance about science, reason and logic.

So essentially, you made a fool or *yourself* - not Wilt or his dad, and not Dr. Fauci. Only you look like the fool here.

Hope that helped clear things up.

Finally some good news from Florida -- something DeathSantis can't mess with. Good luck!

I wanted to add that it didn't go unnoticed by me that you were egging on HermosaJoe for defending his right to spread Invermectin propaganda in the Cedric Ceballos thread. You piled on to agree that the moderators were unfair bullies for not allowing propaganda to be spread here.

So by my count this current round, you're at strike 2.

Quote:
A truck claiming to be from a funeral home was emblazoned with a blunt message Sunday while driving around Bank of America Stadium, where the Panthers were playing the New Orleans Saints: “Don’t get vaccinated.”

It remains unclear who might be behind the scare tactic urging people to finally get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The website for the “Wilmore Funeral Home” on the truck takes people to a site that simply says, “Get vaccinated now. If not, see you soon.”

That landing page redirects people to StarMed’s COVID-19 vaccine web page, which contains vaccine scheduling information and a lengthy list of commonly asked questions.

That stupidity shining through again! Bravo. The fact that you actually thought that was some sort of "gotcha" just shows the level of dolt you reside in. Why are people like this even given three strikes? And why are you still here if you dislike it so much? Common sense levels must be just as low as the IQ.

Is it stupid to rely on future data? Fauci is the expert. He's been in his position for quite awhile. I have faith in his decson.

You are not following. Nowhere did I say that. The poster was trying to troll someone who posted they were taking their father to get their booster dose today by posting that.

Is there not enough data already from March-today this year between pro-vaccine states vs anti-vaccine, u know, their governors’ actions? You name it, hospitalizations including ICU, pediatric ICU, general pediatric hospitalizations and also death… what is there to argue about? Just admit it, at this point all this anti-vaccine crap are just… whatever y’all, just get vaccinated

I think Omar (?) covered this before. Sure, there are some that are dense and don't follow the logic, or are just the same Jennie McCarthy nuts who are anti-vax period. But most of those who are anti-vax, at least in the white community, aren't anti-vax because they "don't trust the science". That's just the excuse they use. They just want to "own the libtards". AS I have said before, if when Trump was still in office, he had told his MAGAts to get the vaccine because the "China Virus" (as he called it) was a liberal plot, they would be all over the vaccine to the point they'd be trying to double dose.

100%. And to boot, his cult booed him when he did an about face about the vaccine. I don't think he realized the beast he created is beyond his control. Who woulda thought...,

You all can trust "scientists" and "medical professionals" who do "research" and make decisions based on "facts".

But I'm gonna listen to random people who have a religious-like devotion to their own personal truth. Because this is 'Merica. Red, white, and blue. Shotguns and pick up trucks! And if you hippies and mask-wearing liberal elites don't like it, don't worry, once Q-Anon reveals himself and delivers horse dewormer to us REAL Americans. We'll kick all y'all out of OUR country!
