    1. Remember plebs,get double vaccinated,wear three masks,enjoy owning nothing and eat your bugs.Agenda 2030.

  1. I don’t see full authorization significantly increasing voluntary vaccination. I do see full authorization increasing vaccine requirements for employment and access to travel and entertainment options such as attendance at sports and music events. Eventually vaccine requirements will increase the vaccination rate, if the virus has not yet mutated to a completely vaccine resistant variant.

    1. The anti-vaxers will just find another convenient excuse. That is just the way they roll.

  2. For Republican voters who, led by the likes of Carlson, oppose vaccination there are obvious issues. However their opposition may be diminishing, not by attitude but by numbers. Consider this: By the 2020 midterms, there might be between 36,000 and 54,000 fewer of those voters and by the 2024 election there might be between 46,800 to 93,600 fewer.

    These figures are based on the following. There are about 450 days till the midterm elections and about 1170 days to general election. The current daily covid death rate = 250. Future death rates will vary depending on vaccination rates, so I have used estimates for midterms of 200 and 300 and for 2024 election, 100 to 200 (assuming only the die hard voters resist vaccination) Delta + vaxx intransigence could increase that figure. I have also assumed 40% of deaths are Republican voters. So the simple sums yield:

    450 x 200 = 90,000, 40% = 36,000. 450 x 300 = 135,000 40% = 54,000

    1170 x 100 = 117000, 40% = 46,800. 1170 x 200 @ 40% = 93,600.

  3. I’ll wait for this FDA approval, and then *LONG TERM DATA* before I make my decision for my family. This may take years.

    1. @ajs11201 Decade? The vaccine is not even approved by the FDA. Your drinking too much fake-news Kool-aid.

  4. So heres a thought my Wife had and at the very least,is interesting.She says instead of blaming all the unvaccinated people how about it could be the vaccinations which has caused it to mutate?In other words the vacs have linited it strength so this thing has mutated to keep up.

    1. virologists believe that the biggest threat is the sheer number of variants being generated and that some of these will be especially dangerous. they don’t believe that viruses design their mutations to evade a particular immune response. because they all believe that mutation is essentially random. as do all biologists.

    2. @William Krause The large number of unvaccinated people isn’t helping to reduce the number of mutations.

    3. @William Krause then why did these variants only show up after the vacs.And if this is the case vaccinations will not be able to keep up with the strands.What we supossed to do,get booster shots every 3 months because of new strands?

    4. @ajs11201 yes, of course it’s increasing the number. was trying to directly answer the question there.

    5. @Troy Jenkins many of them started showing up before the vaccines. since covid is still all over the country and the world the mutations keep coming. and, yes, if resisters don’t start getting vaccinated people who want to keep themselves and others safe may eventually need a booster. like you would for tetanus, pertussis, diphtheria, or meningitis. if we as a society don’t want masks and boosters and travel restrictions and dining restrictions and rising death tolls, a lot more people need to get the shot soon.

    1. @Laurie VanCurler I believe it’s the other way around. Whoever took the vaccine you’re basically a lab rat that took a experimental vaccine.

  5. With the death tolls are reflecting that the vast majority of people dying of COVID aren’t vaccinated, it gets harder to rationalize to yourself why you don’t need a vaccine.
    Imagine that.

    1. The majority of deaths in UK are now in the vaccinated camp (PHE technical briefing 18 page 17), despite nearly identical vaccination rates as USA, for all ages. The 99% figure is CLEARLY another Fauci lie, which is why there is not a single study/report supporting it. The situation is the same in Israel. Sorry you fell for yet another lie.

    2. @robotron17 omg you looked at a technical bulletin and thought you understood it. ask a scientist to explain to you how you are entirely wrong.

  6. Remember to get vaccinated or a vaccinated person might get sick from the virus they got vaccinated against because you’re not vaccinated.

    1. I had this conversation with a family member, and she suddenly developed agonizing back pain and had to stop. Pathetic.

  7. they’re desperately trying to get it fully approved so they can mandate it. an experimental fakzeen can’t be mandated and they know it. problem is getting it fully approved would normally be impossible. the fakzeen trials haven’t even finished their 3rd phase yet. that’s due in 2023 or something. the whole approved thing is bullsh*t.

  8. John 8:44
    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    Isaiah 5:20
    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

  9. Hey, whatever happened to people falling down dead in the street from “covid”, like we saw in the early propaganda videos from China?

    New Zealand finished the race with 26 Covid deaths 11 months ago.
    China has also finished the race with 4,636 Covid deaths.
    America is still struggling with 628,432 Covid deaths and 300 more each day. Tomorrow New Zealand would have waited 1 year.
