would you consider the 40-49 (fuker) bracket elderly? seems like quite a decent efficacy of the vaccine at that point too.. even 30-39

I wouldn’t call that elderly if you have good lifestyle choices and are healthy. If people decide to get on the booster - that’s there choice. I am not critical of that.

I got dragged into that hyperbole.

My points were about fear mongering and incorrect figure reporting and uninformed politicians.

Listening to this press conference now - and this old bald reporter talking about mixing at Christmas - fuck off.

Ooooooooh I know a fun game. Everyone share:
1) The highest level of education you have attained.
2) Your vaccination status.

1) Bachelors (degree not super noodles)

2) 2 jabs and booster booked in for friday

Not a fan of vaccine passports though and the prospect of these buffoons in charge dictating our life choices

1: Bachelors
2: Fully Vaxed

Will get booster if it becomes mandatory but think it's a bit pointless seen as I'm a healthy 35y/o who has already had Covid twice and it was basically an extended flu the first time, and just a regular flu the second. I do think old codgers and fatties should get it though for their own sakes.

Looking at the hospitalisation rates in the charts that got shared it seems like the vaccine is doing a good job and/or the newer variants aren't as potent. Seems like we're nearly at the point we are with the flu where at risk people should get a vaccine every year.

2 shots

shouldn’t be forced imo but don’t care if makes your life more inconvenient if you haven’t been, you know that old saying if you don’t wanna get shit on don’t stand under an arse

also the antivax people I know irl are all well odd, but can’t weigh in on that cause I don’t know anything about it.

Anecdotally, half my friends might have covid, I now might have it, loads of my friends all saying they have friends who have got it, and lots of my hinge matches have it. It's def everywhere at the moment.

PS vax me up, I really don't care about getting more jabs, I'm sure the more moderate antivaxxers wouldn't be questioning science if they were all of a sudden in hospital with some unrelated life or death illness.

1) BA
2) 2 with third next Tuesday.
3) Slippery slope if things are mandated. I do think that mandating it for certain sectors thus far has bordered on discrimination. I think it is a choice still at the end of it all, but the amount of misinformation and scare mongering is hampering common sense. Would have loved to have seen how this would have played out pre internet or even social media.

Having said that, are vaccines and shots when travelling to certain countries advised or mandated. Serious question, as I can't remember.

Im not sure if they check but i assume most peeps dont want a bout of a tropical disease so get a shot. But then again its the travellers choice.
