    Peter tells me he thinks he will be dead soon and that I should start a memorial thread celebrating his life.

    So here it is.

    Please discuss.

    Oh, and BTW, here is my favorite photo of him.

    In case anyone is wondering, he's talking about me.

    Why does horse assume an early demise for an anti vaxxer?

    It's my favourite photo of me too.

    I have another acquaintance ( notice I didn't say friend ...) who is an Anti Vaxxer hes sent me lots of data about the issues with vaccines and how hes is going down the Vitamin D and Zinc track. and yes there are some benefits of these and has been for some time however at my age and based on the risk matrix, at my age the probability and consequences are in the top corner of the red.
    Having said that and he survives as now every one is going to get the virus, and he has no long tern side effects.

    I'm just disappointed that when I tried to change the title to "Airclint", it was too late.

    Graeme, I was concerned about the vaccines, the 52 year old wife of a long term colleague died from her jab and I have another who went through a severe thrombosis episode which almost killed him and will probably affect him for life.

    So my plan was to wait for Novavax, because it's a true vaccine and doesn't create spike proteins. However the dates have kept pushing back and the company seems unstable which is a red flag.

    My opinion is that we'll all catch Covid at some point, or at least 80% of us will (I'm using the Patcentage there) and most people under 50 will have a bad flu and gain immunity, but everyone else could be very sick indeed.

    Then there's the dimension of being discriminated against for not having a Covid passport. The bureaucracy is about 6 months behind reality, so they'll eventually realise it isn't necessary (vaccinated people can be infectious too) and quietly drop it. Meanwhile, no travel, restaurants, pubs, spas, etc for the unvaxxed for most of 2022.

    So when I saw Greg's post on Tuesday, I jumped at the opportunity and I'm forever grateful to him.

    I agree waiting for a fully tested vaccine is valid as the current ones are being used under emergency legislation world wide( not something the boffins has made public).
    Everyone has to endeavor to make an informed decision about the out come of side effects. The shear speed of this virus which is 5 times faster than the original strain.
    Today's data of other countries like the US and UK the increased rate is very serious cause for concern.
    Today Video by Dr Campbell has some interesting statistic about the US. Seems you have equal chance of dying from heart attach and delta variant of Covid sadly those numbers also match the firearms deaths, Leave that for the other thread.

    Most of the delays in a vaccine (or any new medicine) are bureaucratic. Mostly developed at university level, but funded privately. Each step has to have approval, with lots of mulling over and rotting in people's in-trays. Often the study design bounces around for years, and then the collected data are carefully analyzed, and changes made after many committee meetings before the next step is taken. Then the various state and federal health departments stick their oars in and move at a snail's pace, because public servants are petrified to make any meaningful decisions - if they need more paper clips, they first form a steering committee. When you streamline the administrative side of the process, the clinical side can be accomplished quite quickly (Zombie Apocalypse notwithstanding).
