Yesterday I was talking with an elderly gentleman (I am 70 and I would venture he was 80 plus) at my drugstore. His doctor advised him to get the covid booster but not to get the RSV mrna shoot because it is too new and they do not have enough data, but the covid shot has been shown to work. I could not believe this doc actually said that to a patient. I said I disagreed because the safety profile for the covid shot is pretty poor. What struck me even more was this gentleman had not heard any of the points I raised; heart issues, strokes, messing with your immune sysytem, etc.

Meanwhile, in Fairfax County, Virginia, my NextDoor feed is full of frenzied sharing on finding and getting the booster. I cannot WAIT to get out of here.

I'm a Phamacy Buyer for one hospital in a mid/large Northern California Hospital System. In the first few weeks of the Moderna SpikeVax roll out, our hospital system told all the buyers there was a scarcity of product, which for whatever reason was reasonable in the beginning. At that same time the Buyers were under pressure to supply doses for our annual Employee flu clinics. We were not given estimates on demand (I felt it would be minimal). Employee Clinic Coordinators were very anxious and concerned about not having supply. This in combination with the System Coordinators telling us that we may not get what we ordered due to scarcity, created excessive demand. I was asked to purchase $68,000 worth for our clinics. It turns out we are stuck with $54,000 worth of this useless product, which nobody but the true believers (think Health Systems Managers) really wants. I expect this $54,000 will be wasted out once the shots expire in April 2024. That money could have been better spent elsewhere. I wish those in charge would live in the real world instead of their closed off bubbles. Thanks for letting me vent. Love your work.

Kelce should be ashamed of himself. I would love for him to take up Rogers on his offer to have a vaccine debate, but I don't think he has the brain cells to compete in that kind of arena. Sad to see a healthy man who is an icon to so many young kids (and grown adults), put his name behind such a dangerous thing.

Two days ago at a gathering, I overheard an elderly man with his wife say to someone "I just had my 7th booster and am not feeling very well, so we'll go sit down." My jaw just dropped.

The jab-loving, mask-wearing crowd fail to understand that they are simply demonstrating to the world their very poor mental state.

We are in the midst of a global ideological pandemic that has nothing to do with healthcare other than as a tool for indoctrinating and controlling people. There are still far too many foolish, ignorant, weak minded people willing to allow an institutional authority run their lives.

Would be interesting to know the correlation of Hamas supporting antisemitism with those who bought into masking, lockdowns and the EUA gene therapy medical injection called a vaccine. My guess or intuitive deduction is a high correlation.

There were a few times where I wavered on getting the jab but then a new Unreported Truths booklet would come out and reinforce my resolve to remain a pureblood.

In August of 2022 I caught the Wu flu and that variant did what the vaccines were supposed to do. Natural immunity for the win.

Covid jabs "...sure have immunized a huge swath of reporters from anything resembling reality." I LOVE that line!

This "mental immunization" is widespread including among (maybe especially among) highly intelligent people with advanced degrees.

OTOH, a friend (who lost his tenured professorship over the issue) said two other family members with doctorates likewise refused the jab.

Another tenured ready-to-retire friend went to court when his exemption request was denied. A

settlement was negotiated. An important regret: he didn't win the case which would have been precedent-setting for younger untenured professors with families.

The above are exceptions. Other professor friends have taken the jab.

The last extended conversation I had with a professor friend of two decades concerned the booster he was determined to take. Almost to the day five months after our exchange, he dropped dead in mid-sentence while giving a talk.

I presume he took the booster we argued about. Dare I presume the jab took him?

I guess the 24/7 gaslighting for multiple years didn't pan out the way they expected.

Will someone please think of . . . Pfizer's shareholders? Because I sure won't.

Thank goodness 80%+ of people are no longer falling for the potato in the tale pipe that the vax was and is.

Has anyone noticed that every single ad for drugs on television has a mile long list of side effects? Yet none are listed for the COVID jabs????

I heard a public service announcement on the radio yesterday that presented a litany of signs you might have a very rare heart condition known as myocarditis. It was sponsored by Pfizer. It's reminiscent of the tobacco companies having to produce ads informing the public that smoking causes lung cancer.

The reason I didn't get the boosters is because I didn't get the previous booster, or the one before that, or the one before that, or the one before that. I also missed the original double-dose they were pushing - so there was nothing there to "boost".

As Johnny Dangerously said "I know this grapevine".

[Washington and Massachusetts are likely to struggle to reach 20 percent coverage, while Colorado may not even get to 15 percent. These numbers are shockingly low, given that all three states ranked in the top 15 nationally during the initial mRNA rollout.]

Alex, could we pull up a graph comparing state booster rates vs mental illness rates?
