... or they lose their job if they don't
... or they want to travel to a country that requires vaccination to enter.

I grew up in an era where if Tommy had the mumps your mother had you visit him so you could get the mumps while you were young. I have had the mumps, chicken pox, Measles and a few others that I can't remember. Then I joined the Navy and had all of those shots and an unknown number of others. When I was in for 12 years I had to get a series of 12 shots in 4 days (Two sore arms) and a good drunk all was fine.

Unfortunately I am no longer young.

Same here mate…I’m definitely not an anti-vaxer, but I believe that our body will eventually form natural antibodies.

Also, again like you, when I first joined the Army, I had more immunisations than can remember (I must check my IHC) and felt like a pin cushion. Then there was the daily dose of anti-malaria drugs when I was in Asia…nope, not an anti-vaxer, I simply don’t trust these vaccines.

Got me...Couldn't find it in the dictionary.

I live out in the country. The nearest city (?) is Ava. Population 3000 if I'm not in town. I have, for years, dealt with few people. Just my quad music, loading bench, one horse, one wife, two dogs, my GUNs and Larry and his.

As of last week 50% of the US was "fully vaccinated", and we had the highest number of active cases yet seen.

The biggest problem I see is that this whole thing has been so politicized that we can't get accurate information.

I was involved in a COVID discussion with some teachers and high school students this past weekend. There was a rash of COVID infections when TX schools started with 126,000 students cases in 6 weeks; 40,000 the week before last and 26,000 last week so they are hoping it it coming down.

Back to the discussion, they all have had COVID this school year. They said it was a scramble at school with cases the first couple of weeks but didn't think it was a big deal any more. It made me think that in person learning was the best thing Texas could do for these young people and their long-term health. Yes there have been some students that had bad cases of COVID and children's hospitals have higher case loads. However, this younger populations has developed natural immunity that will be much better for their long-term health than having the vaccine (my opinion). Time will tell but I think this may be the best thing that could have happen for our future.
