    To all anti-vaxxers out there:
    Please please please for the love of everything in this world RECONSIDER! I have elderly family members who just can't take vaccine since they're immuno-compromised and rely i. stead on herd immunity. If a vaccine is discovered and propagated, if you are able to, TAKE IT! If that were to happen and YOU cause the epidemic to not stop spreading, I'll blame you all PERSONALLY for causing causing any death that may happen after the vaccine is distributed.

    If it takes up 1.5 years to make a vaccin, does this mean that we have to stay at home until there is a vaccin? Otherwise if we go outside say in july, people will get sick again right? So do we have to stay at home until there is a vaccin?

    To anyone who thinks people should be forced to accept any new vaccine, let me ask you something. According to your own logic, wouldn't anyone who didn't take the vaccine only endanger others who didn't take the vaccine? I mean you all seem to have a cult-like belief in big pharma, so why wouldn't you trust the vaccine you received to protect you from someone who didn't receive it?

    • Revyi Cross
      Revyi Cross Day ago

      @mark clark if you allergic to vaccines. Then you part of the group who can't take them and depends on the people around you to take them.
      Also you more likely to be hit by lightning than to be allergic to a vaccine.
      If most people get the virus then yes.
      Herd immunity can protect the rest.
      However, over 95% of a population have to have it. To create a wall to protect the last 5%. So instead of risking 95% of the population.
      The 95% get vaccinated, which is much safer and you get herd immunity.
      Your last bit I am not sure which way you mean and so I will answer both ways.
      First if you mean the virus will mutate to beat the vaccines.
      Virus aren't intelligent, all they mutations are random and most are harmless.
      However, the longer it allowed to live the more mutations it goes through.
      Which increase the likelihood that a dangerous mutation happens.
      Second if you ment the vaccine that insert the virus into you will give it more chance to mutate.
      Well most vaccines use dead version of the virus and so can't do anything but be examined by the body.
      The vaccines that are alive, have been stripped of it ability to multiple quickly and so mutations aren't likely. As well as it a very weak version with it dangerous parts stripped away.
      So are bodies destroy it, before it can get a foothold to mass multiple. Even if it could.
      Now nothing humanity does is perfect. They always screw up.
      So of course ever vaccine have side effects. As well as even the best vaccine got a 99% success rate. While the worse have 85%.
      Actual all medicine the same way.
      If you want to be weary that is fine.
      But remember the faster we vaccinated, the more lifes that can be saved.
      Also vaccines are very open about what in them and what each object in them does.
      Vaccines are very basic and easy to understand.

    • mark clark
      mark clark Day ago

      @Revyi Cross You make some good points, especially about the virus being able to mutate in someone. However, how I am to know if I am allergic to the vaccine before I take it? Also, I think herd immunity comes about from a large portion of the population having had the disease already also. What about the virus constantly mutating? Wouldn't a vaccine potentially cause the virus to mutate in order for it to infect the vaccinated person?

      I am not against all vaccines, but I wouldn't want to be in the first group of people taking any new and rushed vaccine.

    • Revyi Cross
      Revyi Cross Day ago

      No one trust or like big pharma but with just a bit of knowledge.
      You understand that big pharma loses when it comes to vaccines.
      They cost more to make then what the government allows them to sell them for. If the government wasn't subsidizing vaccine then they wouldn't be able to offered to make them.
      Preventive care such as vaccine are cheap. While once you get the sickness you can easily end up paying thousands to get better.
      Now to answer your question.
      There is 2 big reasons why everyone who can be vaccinated should be.
      First some people can't be. There are different medical conditions that hurt your immune system. If you have any of them. Then vaccines can become dangerous for you. However, if everyone around them are vaccinated. Then the chance they get the virus is really low.
      This is called herd immunity. I suggest you look it up.
      Second reason is unvaccinated people can give the virus a foothold.
      Allow it to survive for longer. Which the longer a virus is allowed to survive. The more it mutates. Which means it could mutate just enough so that the vaccine no longer works against it. Or even worse mutates to be way more deadly.

    I'm sure we can all blindly trust big pharma right? I mean sure Bayer-Monsanto has been poisoning people with glyphosate and covering it up for decades. And so what if big pharma artificially drives up drug costs by barely changing the formulas in their drugs to get around expired patents? And of course they have never rushed out any drugs in the past like Vioxx, Bextra, Meridia, Baycol, Palladone and many more and then had to recall them because they were harmful. Those were all just slight oversights right?

    What kind of fool would blindly be injected with an unknown substance because big pharma and the government said it was good for them? The government experimented on US soldiers during WWII and Vietnam and sterilized people against their will in the early to mid 1900s.

    • Ranken
      Ranken Day ago

      ​@mark clark So after looking through all of your sources I've understand how you wrongly understand the info, let's start:
      1st one: Radiation test: You think it's because it's radiation test and there are people involved so it's radiation test on pp. Well, that's where you're wrong. They didn't test the radiation on soldiers, they tested nuclear bombs on islands that had all of its citizen removed, basically an empty island, to better understand the effect of atomic weapons on naval targets. The soldiers involved in this compensation are mostly people who took part in those tests and got cancer as a collateral damage so I hope that answer your question. However, I don't understand how this is linked to vaccines being harmful in anyway except for that it makes you lose trust.
      2nd: LSD: it was a test for weapons, not vaccines and those soldiers who participated in it were quote on quote "volunteers". Again, not sure where're you're going with this other than it makes you trust less in the government because you did not read the article well.
      3rd: Drug recalls: They Pharmaticals company don't want to give out poison, of course not, they only give drug to save and help people, however , the reason why these drug are out and then had to be recalled is because in the past (the past where you said big pharma was all abt saving people, not making money), they don't have enough money, resources and technology to properly test these drugs, so some side effects may go unnoticed. But as time move on and we get more advanced, so does our testing methods and we can produce safer drugs as a whole.
      4th: Up prices. This is true. It's people nature, they want a benefit for themselves. While it is very sad that this is the truth, this is by no means a reason for you to think that drug is unsafe. It's just expensive, not unsafe.
      Lastly: Poison pp with glyphosate in weed-killers by Bayer's Monsanto. This is weed killers, not sure how much that got to do with vaccines. But you must remember, what matters is the dosage of it. Yes, there's glyphosate in vaccines but what matters is that it's just a very small amount and doesn't cause you any harm. For example, fish have mercury but only in very small dosage so you can eat them safely without any issue. This article will help you understand better.
      Extra: You called the websites I give you "pro-vac". This is basically just you denying the proves I gave you and say that it's pro-vac for it doesn't match your beliefs and say that it is pro-vac because they say vaccines are good.

      @mark clark It can still saves life, the main point of vaccine is to save life. It's not that I can't use, it's to see if you're bullshitting or not. People like you just talk and talk and talk and make claims about vaccines being harmful with no source. Who can trust you?
      Sources for vaccine save lives:
      This artice shows that while vaccine can have some risks, the amount of benefits outweigh it. And this:
      This article tells you how vaccine help and where it came from.
      Now that I've given some of my sources, I'd like you to give some point to prove your claims that vaccine are harmful. If you want to claim anything, you need proves.

    You KNEW it would zoom and allowed gatherings. You showed a TERRIBLE Example to everyone.
    ORDER the Military take over with martial law in force- NOW! We are under attack and need BOLD ORDERS!
    Trump STILL thinks that money can buy his way out. HE refused to call it a pandemic. HE told us- "Just a few cases; they'll be gone in weeks". HE said- "I have NO symptoms, so I don't need testing," after standing next to the infected Brazilian. What an UNscientific A-hole! No clue about scientific FACTS. Dump TRUMP before our parents or grandparents ALL die and youth may suffer 30% lung reduction in survival.
    USA is UNDER ATTACK. EVERYONE should be FORCED to distance themselves; NO GROUPS WHATSOEVER !!!
    India has THREE+ times our population is very poor, and more crowded... but has WAY, WAY less INFECTION!
    That makes them GREATER than USA, as are many other countries!
    India NOW ARRESTS people in the street- with no reason to be there! Spain FINES violators up to $700,000!
    WHY is USA still allowing SO MUCH FREEDOM, to go out and infect others ... ? !!! Oh, I forgot,
    we are now "GREAT AGAIN" - so can ignore the lessons from everywhere else.
