OP you can't be serious. I'm vaccinated, but know that we don't know the long-term effects because we only just started vaccinating people. The serious adverse reactions have thankfully been limited to a small percent so far, but there is a reason why they temporarily pulled the Janssen vaccine, for example. They just didn't understand enough of the risk at that time. There have been several instances of fully approved FDA drugs being recalled. The vaccines don't even have full approval yet. The process isn't perfect. I'm not trying to spread fear. I think people should be vaccinated given the risk of not doing so and given the short-term data and extrapolation from other research. And if there are long term effects, with so many people vaccinated, I'm sure we'd hussle to get things solved. But to dismiss people's concerns just further pushes them away and makes them less receptive to dialogue.

Doctors lining up to get vaxxed as soon as it was available tells me everything I need to know about vaccine safety. I trust those with MDs more than Chad who failed 9th grade biology but I suppose that makes me a sheep or something.

OP I also wondered this. Imagine in 50 years it's only anti vaxxers left, along with their inflated self-importance and odd politics 🤣

I wonder if men would universally still get vaxxed if there was even a slight chance their dick would never get hard again? I absolutely think fertility is a legit concern and people should be able to make this decision with their doctor. My cycle has not been the same since the vax so it’s obviously capable of affecting that process.

I don’t think people are afraid that everyone is going to drop dead. They’re afraid that it will cause some sort of unforeseen chronic health issue

Think I'd rather suffer the consequences of vaccines with the rest of the world than suffer being stuck with only antivaxers if that's all that's left in 50 years.

Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent? Both are sincere views of mine, but upon further reflection I haven’t been able to think of a way one position could be completely defended without undermining the other. Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?

I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
