Who’s Skipping the Vaccine? The Answer
May Surprise You

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 8/30/2021 4:15:43 AM

Big media has been in overdrive pushing COVID vaccinations, at least after Joe Biden was ensconced in the White House. (snip) Once there was a new occupant in the White House, the vaccine narrative flipped and the administration embraced the new vaccines as if Biden and Harris conceived of and developed them (snip) a survey... found a U-shaped curve with the greatest hesitancy among the least and most educated. “The most common concern for those who are hesitant to take the vaccine is potential side effects, with a lack of trust in government close behind in second."

Have read about the extremely high rate of survival for Covid and of the many serious complications, even deaths, following vaccination. It's simple... not going to bow to Socialist/Marxist control... not willing to take the chances. Drs. Fraudi and Birx, Gates, and others benefiting hugely for govt-paid shots have already gained way, way too much.

Constant vacillation by Dr. Faucistein and the CDC have to share responsibility. Trouble with the vaccinations (it's not a vaccine, but a shot) is they wear off in efficacy. Words of wisdom (?) from Anthony and the CDC is now you have to get one every five or six months, they are not exactly sure of the timing, for perpetuity. The world is one big clinical trial of Big Pharma, and BP is getting rich at your expense.

FTA: “A new report by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh has found that the most highly educated Americans are also the most vaccine hesitant.” You know, I wasn’t so hesitant about the vaccine before the democrats became so adamant about insisting we all have to have it. Now, after democrat bullying, I don’t know if I would take it or not. Being high risk, although I have had the virus, my doctor strongly advised me to get it to lessen the effects of any future variant. I have to tell you. In the wee hours of the morning I sometimes think about what the government has injected into my body. Will it “turn on” sometime in the future and create who knows what kind of medical chaos. It is a very sad day when you have zero trust in your government. I am terribly cynical when it comes to anything the government wants to mandate,

For the millionth time, I am not "hesitant". I am the opposite of "hesitant". I am assured, unwavering, determined, confidant, and beyond a shadow of a doubt NOT getting any covid vaccines.

Until I hear talk about treatment and prevention, I will assume this is all political. It's a treatable disease, caught early. And, if you know how to do it, it's preventable WITHOUT masks or distancing. (Read about dietary lysine arginine ratio and dietary zinc.) There has never been a cure for the common cold, another corona virus. Left untreated, it, too, will advance to pneumonia and kill you. COVID is a real virus. They just put a scarier name on it.

Day 6 and I feel pretty much normal. Daughter and I are going to get tested, though, only because a friend we entertained for about 5 hours last Wednesday texted me yesterday and said he is positive. Daughter is an RN, so she needs to know, in addition to the symptoms she's had the last several days. We both took Ivermectin and believe it made a difference. I already let my boss know yesterday I was getting tested; otherwise I may have skipped it based on how I feel. Should have as much natural immunity as possible, certainly better than the Shot.

Had Covid July 2020. I am unvaxxed. Antibody test June 2021: 328.3 u/ml. Anitbody test Aug 2021: 360.0 u/ml. Antibodies HIGHER than they were 2 months ago. Also positive for lab-tested t-cells. Also positive for Spike antibodies (the ones the vax are supposed to provide). No one will answer why a covid-revered person needs the vax. No one can answer what the long term effects are on a covid-recovered person (studies not done!) If a vaxxed person can still catch and spread covid -- then you have to ask why this diabolical push to get everyone vaxxed, regardless of recovery status.

I don't believe the 'boogeyman behind every bush' theoryies of deliberate malevolence as a reason for pushing the vaccines. Nor do I believe it is some world government "reset' plot to sterilize the human race and reduced the world population. I think the reason is 'good-ol' GREED. Pharma makes a hell of a lot of money from vaccines for which OUR US government has immunized these companies against liability risks. All money with NO risk - Dayam!

I have a 99.7% chance of surviving the virus. I have no comorbidities other than my age and am very very healthy. I still don’t know a single person who has had the virus but I do know people who have had serious side effects from the shot - high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat (caused by clotting?) and neurological problems extreme enough to cause disabilities. Plus, I don’t trust anything which is being pushed this hard and in some places forced by the government. No clot shot for me. Ever.

I am quite sure I had the covid in December of 2019. I had all the symptoms. I had the pfizer shot in March of 2020 but I am pretty sure I don't want to have continuing injections every 5 months. I don't know when I have distrusted anyone more than I distrust Dr. Faux.

Anything the left, Biden and Harris, promote I'm against. I wouldn't take or follow advice from a low IQ dumb nitwit like Joe Biden. The longer this plays out the more proof we have that it's only a 'shot' not a vaccine which helps the person if the virus is contracted. The 'shot' is like taking a non-alcohol drinker into a bar giving them shots of whiskey then getting them drunk. When the drunk feeling wears off will the drinker go back for more shots? If they didn't like the drunk feeling but false security of 'feeling high and mighty' will they go back for more shots of whiskey or should I say a 'booster'. That's how confusing the information is with lies piled up on top of it. If Joe Biden is for it I'm against it I'll take my chances. BTW I have not taken flu shots. I may have had the flu or was it a bad cold in the 1950s I did receive a vaccination in the Military following their orders. This was to go to the far east for a stroll in the jungle I presume. I'm not going to be a lab rat experiment then find out it was dangerous to do so. Do we know that the mask wearer, Joe Biden, really received a vaccination or what does his physician think about it? Biden might have lied about receiving the jab he's a fraud anyway.

A friend in CA was pressured to take the vaccine at a visit at the VA and shortly later died. No autopsy, so can't prove it was the shot, but believe the vaccine caused blood clots that caused his death like many others. We also believe the demonrats' agenda is DEPOPULATION. And starting with the elderly that is a strain on Social Security, Medicare and other social services. Demonrats believe that money is needed to build a New World Order and starting now. We're also not getting the annual flu shot. Heard locally a nurse had a bad reaction to the flu shot and got a call from CDC. Why would the CDC be calling about the annual flu shot? One wonders if the CDC is ordering the annual flu shot to include the Covid shot. We don't trust THIS government!!!

* I took pfizer 1st shot in April. 2 weeks later I started getting weird sick numbness and tingling. It took three months to go away. Pressure from friends, my doctor, and news media convinced me my weird symptoms weren't from the shot. My doctor even suggested I had a brain tumor. Especially since I couldn't find any one on the internet reporting similar symptoms. In the last two weeks I have found many and I am convinced that Google manipulated it's search to avoid those forums which had negative things to say about the vaccine. Gee thanks Google. You may have killed me. * So I took pfizer 2nd shot one month ago. The same symptoms have reappeared again 2 weeks after but much worse. There is now no doubt in my mind that it was the shot. The symptoms seem to match severe peripheral neuropathy. I hope it will fade away in a few months and cause no permanent damage. My feet are on fire and numb and cold at the same time. My face, hands, stomach, head all similar. * Finally Eric Clapton announced his symptoms and they are very similar to mine. I learned Crossroads note for note in 1969. I could still play it today but I don't have the energy to pick up the Strat. Eric says he is being shunned for his anti-vaccine statements and no one is calling him. Hey Eric. Let's talk. Anytime. I've only known you through the grooves of a record but I'm pretty sure we would have been friends if we had ever met.

I am here to report first hand this is one heck of a virus but being over the age of 60 am now naturally immunized. In March 2021 there have been published including by the nih on their sites the proven use of ivermectin, (when dosed properly by a Dr. type) as prophylactic to lessen viral load thus lessening symptoms and slowing spread. Maybe this is why farm animals aren’t dropping (extreme sarcasm applied). The very argument for having to fund abortions to stop back alley coathangers should be applied here before jo bob goes to the grange and attempts wild crafting. This lack of prophylactic treatment is criminal.

FTA: “The vaccines do however reduce the risk of severe illness and death, allowing many to suffer milder infection, gaining natural immunity and pushing the country closer to herd immunity where COVID becomes a seasonal nuisance like influenza.” No, they do not. The “gaining natural immunity” phrase is the most disappointing, yet predictable, belief of the modern American medical community. Vaccines do not create herd immunity; people’s immune systems do. Vaccines in the traditional, inoculation sense of the word can be a useful tool. The mRNA delivery method actually suppresses that process.

My reason for preaching against the current "almost vaccine" is that the "almost vaccines" were developed using tissue from murdered human beings. I consider that my health does not have to be dependent on killing children. And: when compared to real vaccines, this one cannot be classified as a vaccine.

Good luck #20. Hope you get better. Didn't see anything new in the article. Trump supporters, blacks, and the uneducated aren't getting vaccinated. I've already heard that. Whatever. If you read about COVID long enough, you will read everything and anything. Nothing definitive. They don't really know what they are doing. Fairly certain I haven't had COVID. Probably because I don't see many people. I have always kept my distance Guess that makes me a loner, but I'm fine with that. I don't mind staying home all day. I eat out once a week with the Lady Chihuahua, occasionally we go out with her family. Chiropractor every other week. Massage therapist every other week. We also go to the grocery store about three times a week. Occasional visits to CVS, Walmart, and Sam's Club. That's it. Used to visit a senior center about 10 hours a week, but that has been shutdown since 3/2020. The Lady Chihuahua has other doctor visits, but goes alone. We both got the 'vaccine'. She's at risk for COPD which makes her high risk, and I live with her. That was enough justification in my mind to get the shot. From that perspective, don't really need to be informed, but I am. Some people browbeat me to get the vaccine. I ignored them. I refuse to listen to people that behave like that. I haven't had a sick day in over two years. I ask myself what might help. I take D3. I also take the 325mg Aspirin since I have had atrial fibrillation in the past. I've read that D3 helps with resistance. The Aspirin specifically guards against clots (but makes me bleed easier). Really don't know if they have helped me through COVID and the vaccine, but they might.

According to this article nearly two thirds of adults and 81% of the elderly have been vaccinated. That means a large majority of the country is vaccinated. The “hesitant” and the so-called anti-vax are small minorities who have attracted more attention than is warranted. Most of those most likely not to survive the China Flu have made the right decision to get vaccinated. I certainly am happy I got both shots in March. I see no reason for those who had the disease or young people to get the shots. In reality the vaccination effort has been a roaring success. Needless to say Biden seems hellbent on screwing it up.

The vaccines do not work. Vaccinated have double the viral load than the unvaccinated and infect others more. Antibody enhanced disease has been shown in Israel, where 80% of the population had the Pfizer. Pericarditis and myocarditis in the vaccinated young are a problem because they cause heart fibrosis. Eric Clapton, Naomi Wolf and Robert Kennedy Jr. have done a great service. We are now vaccinated but previously took HCQ as prophylactic. What American Doctors are doing with Ivermectin now is criminal.

FTA: “A new report by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh has found that the most highly educated Americans are also the most vaccine hesitant.” This was not a survey of a few hundred, but of 5 million Americans. Yep, all us ignorant, brainless fools with college and graduate degrees are the most likely to have looked closely at this "vaccine" and actually have known what a vaccine really is, and noted something like "hey, that's not the normal kind of vaccine. Perhaps I need to look a little closer, dig a bit deeper." And the deeper you dig, the uglier it gets. The more knowledge you have about this gene therapy, the more clearly you see that this is the biggest human experiment ever run on planet Earth, and we won't know the results until after the next generation are into their childbearing years when we'll find if they are harmed, and if so, in what ways. The other group is the folks who just don't trust the government. They've been lied to a lot, and don't trust 'some government guy here to help'. That can be a good survival instinct, too.

I got first and second shots - Pfizer but likely will not get the booster. The more I read about the so called vaccines, the more I realize there are too many unanswered questions about their long-term effects.

When Abraham Lincoln spoke the prophetic words "a house divided against itself cannot stand" — in a speech before the Illinois Republican state convention in 1858 — he was a relatively unknown politician. He saw the obvious: North and South were hopelessly divided over the issue of slavery — or more fundamentally, states' rights — and a breakup was all but all but unavoidable. This came to pass in just a few years' time in the form of the Civil War. Is America nearing a similar point in 2021?

Footage, first posted online by advocacy group Right Wing Watch on Wednesday, shows Robinson addressing the congregation at the Asbury Baptist Church in Seagrove back in June. The Republican, who would take over if the state's Democratic Governor Roy Cooper stood down or was impeached, is seen raging that children should not learn about such 'filth' in public schools and using a derogatory phrase for transgender people.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, the nation’s first Native American Cabinet official, tearfully described the White House grounds Friday as “the ancestral homelands” of two Native American tribes. During an event with President Biden on the North Lawn of the White House, Ms. Haaland became choked up as she praised the president’s action to restore territory of two sprawling western national monuments that had been reduced in size by then-President Trump. “We are here today on the ancestral homelands of the Anacostan and Piscataway people, bending the arc of the moral universe toward justice,” Ms. Haaland said. She thanked Mr. Biden “for the profound action you’re taking today to permanently

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the Democrats an offer they didn’t refuse in order to avoid the problem of the debt limit and throwing things into chaos. He agreed to the deal for a short-term extension. But the issue still has to be resolved by Dec. 3. Some Republicans were mad that he did that, believing that he gave the Democrats an out.
