My point is/was that there doesn’t seem to have been any legitimate studies w/published outcomes and data to support.
So true, guys like me that are taking a risk. Although I haven't experience any side or negative effects after mixing viral vector with mRNA, your mileage may vary.
Delta variant seems to be the real deal however:https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101 ... qus_thread
Personally I don’t feel the risks would be any worse than any of the vaccines as a stand alone but again that’s just my opinion.
“Risks” are something that baffle me regardless of what we’re talking about because “different strokes for different strokes” and here’s a crazy example in regards to the COVID vaccines.
100% true story and it happened just this AM.
This is how stupid people can be, how misinformation gets buried in our minds.
Myself and partner responded to a 911 call that was for a 90y/o female “not feeling well”.
Call notes on MDT (mobile data terminal/computer in ambulance) said that the initial screen for Covid19 was positive. (This is via questions asked by dispatch)
We arrive to find the 90 y/o sitting peacefully and in good cheer in her living room, her adult(obviously) daughter and son-in-law were in attendance.
The woman is alert and oriented x4, no obvious distress or injuries.
When I questioned the 90 y/o pt how she was feeling she said that her hip hurt a little. This turned out to be a chronic complaint and there was nothing new about it.
So I turned to the daughter and asked what the emergency was.
The daughter went on to explain that her and her husband had both recently been diagnosed with COVID but had recovered and been symptom free for over a week. These folks were clearly against the vaccines, I know because when I asked if them or the patient were vaccinated they went off on me about all the hoopla and then some.
They had concerns that they may have exposed the 90 y/o to the virus, so two days prior on Tuesday they took the women to a stand alone ER/urgent care for testing, women tested negative.
This is where it gets ludicrous, and how peoples view of “risk” becomes baffling to me.
This woman had absolutely no symptoms of Covid, she had absolutely no complaints (other than her minor chronic hip pain) but they want her to be taken by ambulance to a busy emergency room to be re-tested because they “believe” she got a false negative result from the test two days ago.
I tried hard to explain the “risks” involved in taking a healthy 90y/o to a busy ER but they weren’t having any of it.
I asked if she was in fact negative again if they would consider getting her vaccinated, that opened a can of worms. I was told not no but Hell No.
Anyway we loaded this lady up and hauled her to the ER, she was evaluated at triage and being completely stable and w/o complaints she was moved to the lobby to wait. The lobby was full of sick people (at least 40) and the nurses told me that at least 6 were COVID positive.
This lady still made all her own medical decisions but her family dictates what they want her to do.
This lady didn’t want to go to the hospital she consented because her family wanted her to go, she wasn’t against getting vaccinated, she refused because her family didn’t think she should.
In terms of “risk”, how can someone/anyone think there is more risk involved with the Covid vaccine than there is with contracting the virus @90 y/o?
How can anyone risk sending a perfectly healthy 90y/o loved one to an ER full of sick folks and think that’s somehow less risky.
I just don’t “get it”!
Rant over, maybe.
