So.. Who’s Getting The Third COVID Vaccine Shot?

Alright guys I feel like I'm really starting to fucking lose my mind with this COVID shit, now with talk of the 3rd shot nearing FDA approval and various vaccine passports coming to reality.

How are you guys dealing with some of the BBs requiring full vax before going back in office? And what if they start asking for a 3rd and 4th shot to remain in compliance? I feel like the goalposts keep moving.

You are not alone. People should be thanking us for taking the risk and acting as the control group in this gigantic public health experiment 🙄

Becoming concerned they are going to make us get this every ~6 mo with documentation…..probably inevitable at this point.

Don't forget the 4th so you can live your life and the 5th and be sure to remember the 6th. I'm vaccinated but this is going to get bad. Medical privacy is over, the door has been opened.

would say its more so medical autonomy than medical privacy, which is probably even worse. Can only speak for the US but myself and everyone I know has always had to document and report vaccinations to schools/employers

Sep 8, 2021 - 11:01pm

Agreed. This is new territory for employers as HIPAA is seemingly superseded by OSHA requirements for creating a safe workplace. Technically what banks and others are doing by requiring vaccines isn't legal but have yet to be contested.

My neighbour, late 20's/early 30's, had a blood clot in her leg after getting her vaccine and subsequently had to have it amputated. No thanks.

I'm not sharing pictures because I want to respect her privacy. But if you do a quick google search, you will find that blood clots are not an unusual side effect from the vaccine and serious blood clots can lead to amputations.

Stated something similar here and no one believed me, my mum died from a blood clot after taking the vaccine in May, her funeral was in June during my internship and I had to watch her service of songs via zoom from the office.

I sometimes feel hatred toward people that demonize individuals for not wanting to take the vaccine, my own mother literally died from this and people think I am lying.

We should preemptively just start getting vaccinated once a month to ensure full immunity.

We should also set up vaccination camps, where undesirables go to be experimented on medically, if they are not already vaccinated. Resistance should be met with an armed task-force that is set up to corral these people. Those who hide undesirables should be prosecuted along with them.

At OP...I think the goal posts keep moving as well (two weeks it'll all be normal; we're all going to get sick just can't all get it at once to crowd hospitals; do anything not to get it now). 

However, I don't think any of these "restrictions" will change any ones behavior. Its like that old Bill Burr joke about "Stop domestic violence" billboards, does anyone going home to beat their spouse look at that billboard and have a change of heart? Does anyone who is dead set against not getting vaccinated going to have a change of heart? They will just find ways around it, some sort of medical/religious exemption, get a fake vaccine card. Its kind of like how guns and drugs are illegal by law, but how long would it take you to get your hands on one if you really tried. People will always find work around to do what they want to do. I'm not saying that getting/non getting vaccinated is right or wrong, I'm saying the restrictions prob aren't motivating people at this point. For example, if you have a good job at bank and are not getting vaccinated, are you going to quit if you're the sole breadwinner for your family? Probably not, you'll just find a way around it.

I'm at the crib rn, so ~10 steps away from one at all times.  Got my hunting rifles & shotguns if I'm in a sporting mood, got the handguns if I'm in a self-defense mood, and the tactical pieces just because I'm so goddamn proud of my rights.

just got my 3rd dose, i'm immunocompromised so i'd rather not risk getting hospitalized by the virus for no reason. feel great too, got it on saturday and haven't felt off so far. super available where i live too

Sep 8, 2021 - 4:18pm

If you don 't mind me asking, how do you manage work along with your health conditions ? The conditions I read that the booster shot has been approved for are quite severe.


Sep 8, 2021 - 5:05pm

do you mean like how has my condition affected work for me? i have crohn's disease but i've been in remission for a while now, just need infusions every 8 weeks so only downside is allocating time to go to the clinic

Sep 8, 2021 - 9:26am

If it makes medical sense to get a third shot, I'll certainly consider it. I'm not going to automatically throw any reasonable idea out.

It didn't make medical sense to get the first one unless you're old af or have comorbidities.

"Vaccine requirements and passports are literally communism" - people who have literally never once in their life experience communism. Meanwhile, my fully vaxxed grandparents who both grew up under brutal communist regimes are laughing at you morons. 

Sep 8, 2021 - 2:04pm

I'll get it if approved for my age group. But I'm not sure how much it will matter as all of us will be exposed to this virus at some point in our lives. 

Sep 8, 2021 - 3:22pm

You guys realize that your vaccination status isn't a personality right?

idk if I'll get it, I'll get the flu shot this winter because the flu fucking sucks balls but I think this will be endemic and part of the annual flu cocktail, for better or for worse

that said it's still a wonderful world out there folks. Get out there and get after it (unless you're in Australia in which case I'd probably be in jail)

Sep 8, 2021 - 4:22pm

Almost certainly if it's approved.  Side effects weren't the best but nothing crazy like that earlier poster's neighbor so should be ok.

It is only a matter of time before you are labeled a liberal.  Tbh, I am not even sure what any of this has to do with being liberal or conservative.   

Sep 10, 2021 - 8:12pm

Between that and the recent FOX thread I made maybe lol

But I'm against vaccines being federally mandated so I'd still be a conservative unless you argue Biden's recent edict is progressive.

Considering that vaccines don't hinder the spread of the Delta variant the justification is questionable at best. Not to mention the OSHA part is almost certainly unconstitutional and will get tossed when it goes to court

I got it anyways. Like whats the government gonna track with my arm? How many jerks it takes to make me cum?

Sep 10, 2021 - 8:21pm

The group with the highest vaccine hesitancy there is African Americans. Truly unfortunate that a segregation style policy is being implemented there. Shows you despite the MSM narrative nothing has changed about the Democratic party in 50+ years (look who voted in favor of Civil Rights and who didn't). Maybe the composition of the parties changed, but the stances of the elites never did. 


Sep 11, 2021 - 12:10pm

Except the purpose is to get people vaccinated, not stop black people from going to white restaurants or schools.  If all it took was going to any hospital and getting a shot to enter segregated restaurants then the civil rights movement would have been much different 

Sep 10, 2021 - 10:34pm

Fuck no - got my first shot and lost my sense of smell completely. Never got my second. It's been 7 months and still nothing.

I had covid and it was a walk in the park, didn't even lose my sense of smell. Was sick as a dog after getting the praised vaccine. Obviously biased but I'm done with this shit
