Do you feel pressured to get vaxxed?
Im not talking about stuff you see on TV but amongst your family and friends. Has anyone in your family or friendship circle let you know explicitly or implicitly that they expect you to get vaccinated? Im just curious as to the dynamics of that type of social pressure and how you reacted.
for some humour
i have been told online that I am “selfish” for living life normally and not getting vaxxed. I told them to “please F&CK off!”
My youngest daughter, 33, emailed me a couple of months ago, asking me what I thought about it, for her. She’s had some health issues, but nothing that I think would definitely put her in a high-risk category.
I didn’t give her direct advice (of course) but what I did say was that I was convinced by the evidence I had seen in favor of IVM, and since my wife and I are most definitely in a high-risk category we do take the disease seriously. But at the same time, I said that I would not feel comfortable with the fast-tracked “Vaccines” until there was more data — a LOT more data. And I reassured her that we feel just as well protected with IVM (and the lot) as we would feel if we took the shot.
Unfortunately, she copied my sister on her e-mail, too.
My sister un-did everything that I tried to accomplish, with an e-mail that she did NOT copy me on, but was told about later in a phone call. All mixed with a barely-concealed distaste for my position, and the sentiment that I had given our daughter terrible advice.
You bet there is.
As far as family and friends for me not so much because they understand my stance on the current available vaccines go against my morals.
That being said I work in the eye care field as a technician and had a few patients of mine saying things like why haven’t you been vaccinated, you are endangering your life and you are so young etc. For me I keep telling them there is no need for a vaccine for my particular age group (20-30) that young healthy individuals can fight it off. With the added fact that there are other treatments that work like ivermectin.
Like most people though they get the idea of a vaccine will save us. However, we have already seen the evidence that is not always the case. This particular virus was made in a lab so do we really understand it’s true ability yet against these vaccines. Like how long it will be until it mutates around the vaccine protection etc. Until something more ethical comes out count me out of any vaccine for this virus.
Yep. I am the problem and will be responsible for mutations that will kill the children. I am a disappointment and am entertaining conspiracy theories. I will not be invited to events until vaccinated. ALL of these “friends and family” members remain terrified of Covid, although they have been vaccinated. WTSF?
First, an interesting question: Your friends aren’t going to demand your vaccine card to interact with you (probably). If your conscience is clean, is it ethical to let them think you got your jab?
Secondly, Ive decided to enjoy lighter fair and am going through an audio book about the band Heart narrated by the Wilson sisters. Their family had many generations of proud Marines including their father who quit in the early days of the Vietnam war and eventually marched in anti-war demonstrations.
This was all before my time, but the social divisions at that time reminds me of what might happen with the vax. People on both sides are gonna be looking at the other and wondering what the hell went wrong in society that they are surrounded by such traitors.
So this may be our time for struggle. It may come as news to westerners but we are not actually entitled to live lives of pure peace and happiness unpunctuated by strife.
We are not special.
Not yet, but then that would require me to still communicate with the people I (used to) consider friends who disagree with the notion that there are ways to combat this disease without participating in medical experiments. Most actually think the vaccines are approved and government sanctioned. Those already vaccinated have no idea what paperwork they signed to get the shot, or what informed consent and EUA are.
The last friend I spoke to about COVID, after I mentioned that there are treatments I possess and doctors I trust in over the vaccines, flat out told me “THERE ARE NO TREATMENTS.” Full stop and silence on the phone.
I bolded the words because that was the tone I was hit with. I don’t know how many times I asked him to visit the FLCCC webpage. But if it doesn’t have a Bears or Cubs logo on it, it ain’t going on his TV or browser.
Same guy won’t go back to painting peoples’ home interiors (his job) because they might still be in the house while he works. The lockdown in Chicago has taken his brain, if he ever had one to begin with. That and UI from the federal govt.
I’ve gotten really good lately at ignoring vaccine discussions, but the moment I’m pressured or told to get a vaccine by anyone is only a couple moments before my knuckles will have bloody chin and teeth marks on them.
I will regurgitate a previous post of my own in response to this question:
‘With reference to the vax/no vax disputes, I find it easiest to change the subject. Interpersonal relationships are all different, but there’s usually something to mention that would change the subject. For instance, we just love, don’t we, railing against someone we believe to be meaner and stupider than ourselves [that’s part of the dispute, isn’t it}. So a, “By the way, what’s your weird [dum, evil] neighbor [coworker, town councilor, etc] been up to lately?” should get some people going. Another might be, “I’ve been trying to find [-] but no one carries it anymore. Do you know where I can find one?” Or, my favorite, from a brilliant sales manager, “(sigh) [plaintively] Does anyone know how to loose weight (sigh)?” ‘
With deep gratitude to Vondell McKensey for the last one. 50 years later, it still works as a gracious, elegant method of inclusion. In all our modern rude, arrogant public and personal posturing and discourse, in our clawing and gouging to be the smartest asshole in the group, her dear, inclusive southern accent of bygone hospitality continues to teach.
Please, people, forget the ego posturing. All it breeds is stubborn resistance. Our greatest gift to others is to listen with care and interest. As a biproduct, someone may listen to us. This memory is 50 years old this year.
If your conscience is clean, is it ethical to let them think you got your jab?
In my opinion, no. Its a deception.
