    I have heard the issue of giving shots to people who have had covid. First, they already would have natural immunity. But also, the shots are likely to lead to more of these bad outcomes. People should be tested for certain things before being given the shots. Many people would have an allergic reaction to the polyethylene glycol. I'm not sure if there is a time delay that would make it safer to get the experimental shots after having covid.

    Biden Targets “White Conservatives” and Evangelicals for COVID Shots

    In response to reluctance to take the experimental COVID19 shots, the Biden administration is rolling out vast new propaganda campaigns targeting “white conservative communities,” evangelical Christians, black Americans, and other “communities.”

    Gimmicks including peddling the controversial pharmaceuticals through sports, celebrities, TV shows, pastors, and music are all being pursued. Already, billions of federal dollars have been pledged to market the government-backed shots as part of an escalating war on “vaccine hesitancy.”

    “We’re looking for a range of creative ways to get directly connected to white conservative communities,” Biden spokesperson Jen Psaki said in a White House press briefing this week. “We won’t always be the best messengers, but we’re still trying to meet people where they are but also empower local organizations.”

    The whole media push in general is creepsville.

So it isn't a matter of "paranoia" as much as it is a matter of perspective. In my area, the odds of me contracting encephalitis or West Nile Virus is greater than re-contracting covid and having serious effects from it.

    Same here. Most likely already had it. And some folks fall way outside the vulnerable category, so it would be kind of pointless to take any sort of chance with an experimental vaccine when I'm less likely to experience any sort of long term effects from the virus itself.

    Had that one for awhile. Don't remember it having that slight glitch in it before.

    Ours told us that the vaccine was free, but asked for insurance information just in case they could collect from insurance - but no cost to the vaccinated. It makes more sense that it would be on your "permanent record", like the time I put a tadpole in Mrs Ludlow's iced tea in 3rd grade.

    Honestly I'm not overly concerned given that since November the only times I've left my place is to get groceries (along with a trip to fill a prescription, which I need to do again, and one trip to the liquor store for a bottle of brandy last month). And I tend to go before they're busy.

    Last week I told a friend of mine how I haven't bought gas since Christmas when I filled my tank (I refilled it the day after mentioning it since I was below a quarter tank).
