    Exactly. That's why it should be a choice. So that someone like you can elect not to and someone like me can elect to get it.
    Two people should be involved in the discussion. You and your doctor.

    I'm not worried about Grandma or anyone else that gets covid. Two years now, anyone who doesn't know how to deal with the risks isn't about to learn now.

    Sure, anyone can get it and spread it but those who are vaxxed are less likely to fill up hospital beds and don't stay infectious as long.

    Anything that reduces the load on the hospitals is good IMO and until someone can explain to me how not getting vaxxed is helpful I will continue to be pro vax.

    It's not just the load on the hospitals that can affect us all though and hurting the supply chain certainly doesn't help anyone which is why I think this border requirement is stupid.

    meh, it will all be behind us soon.

    Every experiment needs a control group.

    Let's be clear. People regardless of vaccine status are being hospitalized. The largest common factors are age and health.

    So those in good health and average age are not being hospitalized. Plus you have people who are in the hospital for one reason. Being lumped in with those numbers. Just because they tested positive for COVID-19. So numbers are being slightly over inflated.

    So low risk people have plenty of reasons not to get vaccinated. If they choose.

    Because you don't know your genome and therefore cannot precisely ascertain how well your body will manage a Covid infection. We don't have the exact science to tell exactly which person is prone to die from contracting the virus. So the vaccine is precautionary. It's factual to state that not all people need the jab, but we don't know who those people are. One day in some future time when we all fly our cars to work there might be a medical technology that will tell us who is in a precise risk of death, but not today.

    I believe the last hospital data I've read was something like 26% in ICU are unvaxxed, and 5% are vaxxed.
    So there you have it, you pick which side you wanna be on.

    Those are patient attributes and health conditions. I was describing genetics.

    "Research has shown that host susceptibility to many infectious diseases has a genetic basis. Furthermore, much is now known on the molecular epidemiology, evolution and virulence of pathogenic agents, as well as their resistance to drugs, vaccines, and antibiotics."

    Don’t Fall for the ‘VAERS Scare’ Tactic

    From the arcticle

    To show that VAERS listings should not be taken at face value to mean that the vaccine caused the reported event, I trawled through the database’s reports on the COVID-19 vaccines. There were many, many reports of fever and injection site reactions (to be expected), but there were also, shall we say, head-scratching reports. A woman reported a large bald spot on top of her head following vaccination. Someone simply wrote in, “Nosebleed.” I saw a report of “anal leakage.” More than one person complained of suddenly becoming impotent. Meanwhile, at the other end of the spectrum, the funniest report I saw stated, “My ##### swelled to ten times its size.”
