Oxnard-- I'm on the fence about getting the Covid-19 vaccine, and I'm sorry, the more research I do, the more I waffle.
First of all, this vaccine is not approved by the F.D.A. Okay that sparks some questions, starting with why the F.D.A. has not approved the vaccine. I know they gave emergency approval for the vaccine, but at the same time, if this is worthy of me sticking out my arm and saying yes, please, why are Pfizer and Moderna immune from any lawsuits?
To me, that's the equivalent of me having my taxes done by a guy who says he is "really good at cyphering numbers," but before I get my heinie reamed by the I.R.S., I have to sign a release saying he could never be sued.
I've had this fight before, and it was a huge fight at my house. My dad, good ole' Pop, went in to have his aorta fixed; I told my sister not to sign a release of liability if the doctor gave her one. That worthless scumbag doctor ran thousands of dollars of tests on him, and he told my idiot sister that it was safe, but unless she signed the release of liability, he wouldn't perform the surgery.
She signed the release, he had surgery and a stroke, and he died. Her lawyer told her that she couldn't sue. She and I had a huge fight before Pop's surgery, and I lost. Well, good ole Pop is the one who lost.
Listen, if you want to get vaccinated, good for you. I am leaning towards getting vaccinated, but unfortunately, I make my living asking questions, and the fact that the government has built-in protections concern me.
Now I'm being told that even if I get this shot, I can still get the Delta variant of Covid. I'm going to take a guess here and predict that we'll have more variants of Covid until the next election. A friend of mine got sick with the Delta variant of Covid, and the first thing they did was tell him that if it weren't for his shots, he would have become seriously sick.
Okay, I'll play along, and my next question is how can this shot, that before they released it to the public required total immunity from being sued, would turn Covid into what amounts to just a bad flu?
I took to the web for answers, and according to the Insurance Journal, when I asked this question, can the government get sued if I get hurt from the Covid shot; what popped up was "How U.S. Government Will Handle COVID-19 Vaccine Injury Claims Is Largely a Secret."
Of course, I saw the President stand in front of the television cameras and say, "I promise you the vaccine is safe." Okay, then why hasn’t the FDA approved the vaccine?
Just one, well, a few more questions. What happened to the original Covid-19? Is that over? Why aren't we talking about this anymore? Is anybody working on a vaccine that will deal with all these variant vaccines? If they are, what is the timeline for the new vaccine?
Since I'm in question asking mode, is there any plan to hold China accountable for this mess? Wait, we're not supposed to talk about that. Thank God I am an old S.O.B. that isn't afraid to ask questions, expect direct answers, and is not afraid of the haters in the world.
Of course, Facebook will probably put a warning on this post saying the Covid 19 shot is safe, but of course, they probably won't answer any of my questions.
