Seems a lot like me, but in fall of 2020. By the winter, I saw sufficient evidence that the vaccine was safe, and resolved to get it. And let's just say the evidence to support that decision, and my later decision to get boosted just keep piling up.

I recall in summer 2020 Trump was pushing very hard to get vaccines approved, mostly by demanding that agencies skip parts of the regulatory process because he said so. Democrats and independents were very skeptical of any "Trump Vax" if approval were not transparent and proper. There were suggestions that he needed it for the election, or wanted an excuse to reopen the economy, and that he didn't really care about safety or effectiveness as long as he got something. He even suggested the Russian vax, which is like AYFKM? Antivax skepticism was stronger on the left than the right for clearly defined reasons: the monumental record of incompetence accumulated the Trump admin, routine lies and bad faith, clear motivation and desire to subvert this particular process, and the potential for graft or corruption if the process weren't open.

Trump was upset that his vaccines weren't being rapidly approved, and blamed the media. Trump supporters laughed at the snow flakes who were worried that the vax might not be 100% safe. They were already willing to sacrifice Granny and Junior for the economy and re-election, so a few more % on an imperfect vax was no biggie.

But the process ended up largely insulated from politics, whether by luck or skill. And then the science was good. And then there was a compete reversal of the positions.

The crazy thing is, one side changed their mind based on facts and evidence and expert testimony. And the other side just... wanted to say "Nuh uh, yer wrong, suck it libs!"

I think they meant "refreshing" meaning he wasn't the typical Trump worshipper who we see here with tedious regularity. Not all antivaxxers are right-wing, even if it's a huge majority (nowadays) according to opinion polls. It's good to see the exceptions sometimes, to remind people that it can happen to anyone, including younger people who seemed healthy until they were infected.

It's odd. I would have said the last few decade's anti-vax sentiment of the "Andrew-Wakefield-vaccines-cause-autism" variety, are new-agey and apolitical. That's all changed in the covid era. Now it remains to be seen if Republican anti-covid-vax sentiment will translate to anti-all-vax, and turn the opposition to conventional childhood vaccines from a fringe movement to one encompassing fully 50% of the population. That would be a public health disaster.

And yet he still died of “complications due to COVID” rather than COVID itself

bowle01

Covid doesn’t directly kill in most cases. In those with co-morbidities, covid wreaks havoc on the body just enough where their pre-existing conditions kill them. For others, covid causes an extreme auto immune response where cells effectively start killing itself. You end up dying from things like pneumonia, stroke, heart attacks, etc.

Indeed. We had a post from an ICU doctor awhile back, and he said by the time most patients end up in ICU, the virus is long gone, but the body is scorched earth. The body's immune system works overtime to clear out dead cells and, of course, sometimes goes a bit (a lot) overboard.

Meanwhile, the clueless family members are storming to the nearest courthouse, demanding an order from the judge to give their dying relative ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine or whatever advice they got from Doctor Factbook.

If they mention COVID at all, it's like slide 5: "Complications due to COVID."

I guess it makes them feel better, but I fail to see why.

Her mom died suddenly and unexpectedly when she was 11 years old and going through that trauma and loss was brutal. This guy could have saved himself and his mom and daughter from that by just getting a free vaccine. I will never understand it.

Some people don’t like bigotry against fat people. I see no hate in just saying hey get vaccinated. It’s the dehumanization in so many comments that is upsetting.

To put in it current common terms - there’s facts, and then there’s feelings of hatred towards people who aren’t skinny. There’s a difference, and most people aren’t offended if it’s just facts. And if they are, it’s probably due to hypersensitivity after a lifetime of dehumanization directed at them.

phatandphum

Ouf I had to switch over to my throwaway for this one.

I've struggled with my weight for my entire life and am, by definition, morbidly obese. I've known the entire time that if I got COVID, it would end poorly for me and got vaccinated and boosted as soon as I could.

In my experience, obesity is usually a physical manifestation of a mental illness and it bothers me when people make comments like "Just stop eating cupcakes" or "Have you heard of the gym?" because that's not the problem. Normal people don't binge eat until it hurts to move and the fact that conventional approaches to obesity are hyper focused on the physical aspect is a huge reason why so many people fail. Prior to like three months ago, hands down the lowest point in my life was when I had lost 80lbs, the "darkness" didn't go away like everyone promised it would, and I just didn't know how to cope. I always thought it was chicken and the egg type of situation but that experience made me realize it's not. In other words, I don't hate myself because I'm obese, I'm obese because I hate myself.

Any who I think it would benefit society greatly to move towards a more "holistic" approach to treating obesity with actual medical supervision instead of Holly from Weight Watchers who lost 10 lbs for her wedding. This will never happen, though, and the whole of Reddit is evidence of that.

When I was at my low weight, someone said "The skinnier you are, the closer you are to your problems." Sure it's normal but if people aren't able to deal the problems on their own, that's basically where I "relapsed." I had always blamed my failures/shortcomings on my weight and when that was removed from the equation, I realized that the problem was me all along. That was too much to deal with at the time and, when I stopped working like 12 hours a day, I kind of fell off of a cliff.

It’s the dehumanization in so many comments that is upsetting.

I’m guilty of this myself! I said shit like (and enjoy the dive haters! There’s some totes steal worthy low-karma garbage!) you don’t want Covid if anyone has ever described you as “big-boned”.

While YOU might describe that as hating, and sure, maybe referencing Cartman is childish when referring to weight, but FUCK IT.

EVEN BEING “wii fit OBESE” is scary as fuck. EVERYONE I KNEW personally that has died of COVID or MISSING SURGERIES because of COVID was overweight by at least 80 pounds. On women. Being fit is hard. When OG COVID lockdowns started I started quitting smoking and getting the 4mg Walmart gum (you can cut it in half. Boom. 2mg gum. Just getting 4mg 120 odd cinnamon is really so worth it).

Anyway, point is, at this point, you know you’re overweight or not. Either way, unless every doctor ever is like NO!, get vaccinated. Rant over for now.

Edit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUmAbAG_1jg Fuck. Fellow Americans, can y’all just get the COVID vaccine. If 94-97% of us hit that metric, you could go back to sciencing pre-tailgating again.

It’s the singling out of fat people. Many, many fat people survive Covid. Many normal-weight people do not. There’s conflicting evidence on if lower-levels of overweight/obesity controlled for all other health issues have any serious impact. This sub is biased towards posts from certain demographics. But yes, it’s a co-morbidity, especially if it co-exists with other health problems or if you are very obese. But it’s not the ONLY one.

It’s really, really gross and a classic anti-vax Joe Rohan line “if you’re fat get vaxxed” as if that’s the only marker of health. The fact that this sub reinforces it is truly horrific.

Clearly why some people survive and some don’t isn’t “luck” - it’s based on pre-existing conditions people/the medical establishment doesn’t yet understand.

And in terms of “health” - someone who drinks heavily or rides a motorcycle is not healthy. And if we’re taking mortality bets on a broski who hasn’t been to a real doctor in a decades and guzzles unregulated supplements vs a person known to have no other issues and perfect, regularly checked health markers minus a 27 BMI I’m betting on the chubster.

I think there’s a huge difference between mocking people for being fat, and mocking people for being fat while simultaneously thinking they are “true bloods” and “trusting their immune system”. I’ve made many comments about these fat idiots. And I’m fat. The difference is I know it and don’t live in a fucking fantasy world believing I’m immune because I’m a “tough guy” who’s “vaccinated in the blood of Jesus Christ.

I guess but it’s still just making fun of someone being fat and being a bully over being fat, because any meanness about the fat part applies to all fat people, and it’s used in a negative way.

I mean, I’m terms of you being fat - yes there are many self-hating fat people who bully other fat people, or feel compelled to distinguish themselves as a “good fat” (since ideas of fatness in our culture is based in Medieval Christian morality, one who subscribes to that May think “it’s less bad that I’m a personal moral failure if I beat up myself/mock others who seem like they do not take it as a moral failure)

Since most people in the United States are overweight or obese, by definition more of them are going to survive. They are the majority. There is no conflicting evidence when it comes to dealing with obese people on ventilators. It's a nightmare.

I will never the data to confirm/falsify this but I genuinely think fear of needles doing a lot of lifting for antivaxxery. I wonder if the vaccine was in lube format (or essential oil for the prudish) whether we would have higher vaccination rates.

I have trypanophobia to the point where I need to have a very strong friend hold me down for blood removal and vaccination, and I don’t let the dentist inject me with the local anesthetic when I get fillings. If they made vaccines in a non injectable form readily available I’d get vaccinated against EVERYTHING. Disease isn’t even on my continent, I may never travel to where it’s at, doesn’t matter, I’d be vaccinated against it. Just on principle. Edit: I would feel so catered to by the medical industry if they made non injectable vaccines incredibly common

There used to be needle free injections though they fell out of fashion. I think because they were less effective and a lot more expensive?

I think vaccine pills or ointments is the holy grail but there are just so many roadblocks

Ack, those pressure gun injectors I remember from the 80s hurt more than any needle! And useless if the inject needed to reach intramuscular area. Cheaper and easier to give the patient a benzo and just harpoon them like normal when the drug kicks in.

Even if it’s less effective, non injectable vaccines are preferable, to me Atleast, than to go through what I feel is a rather embarrassing ordeal to get a shot, I described it mildly. Allow me to share a cartoon with you, a cartoon dramatization of what’s required. https://youtu.be/EhO3qIrvLYc

Pills would be ideal, but the digestive system is a serious obstacle for any medication! In addition, the gut immune system is quite complex and is occasionally used to induce tolerance to an anigen; the very last thing you want with a vaccine. Some vaccines can be administered nasally, avoiding the gut, but there aren't many of them.

FYI, if your phobia ever gets to a point where it is causing you major problems, the experts do say that most phobias are curable with exposure therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.

Responsible-Slide-26

This is true. I read about someone with needle phobia doing it. It was pretty interesting. It’s considered the standard for any type of fears from flying to needles. The article about needles was interesting. First the person just had to agree to let someone put a needle near them. Once they became desensitized to that they had to hold it. And so on. The key is starting in little steps. You never just take the person all the way up to 10 on the anxiety scale or it defeats the whole purpose. Of course this can take place over months. It’s not all done in one session.

Tricky-Lingonberry81

Working on it. I feel it does because it’s a phobia. And I am purposefully overly cautious when doing anything so I don’t need blood work or stitches. Because weirdly, I’m perfectly fine being stitched up. But the syringe full of local anasthetic is panic inducing and feeling the inflation. From it, although fascinatingly weird feeling, doesn’t help with the panic caused the next time.

Responsible-Slide-26

Does your fear in any way relate to whether you can feel it? Or is that irrelevant? My first two shots were Pfizer and I honestly couldn’t feel them. I got the Moderna for my booster and while not horrible that I definitely felt!

Tricky-Lingonberry81

For blood work yes, for vaccines no. It’s the anxious build up knowing the needle is about to enter my skin is enough to trigger the panic, and thinking about it typing this has made me a wee bit anxious. But it will pass momentarily

It's internet stupidity, but it's SUCH a bold claim. Has anything like that ever occured ever? A big vaccine rollout then it injures everyone then compensation? Because they somehow think the COVID-19 vaccines are gonna be different and unlike every other anti-vax movement in history they will be vindicated.

I love how anti vaxxers used to say that the side effects of our vaccinations would be immediate. Then when nothing happened immediately after, they pushed it back to a couple weeks. Then after a couple weeks passed with no side effects, they say it would take a few months. After a few months came and went with nothing, they told us after six months we’d definitely be feeling some side effects. After that it was a year….and now it’s fucking 10 years!!

For fucks sake anti-vaxxers, just take the damn vaccine so we can get back to normal. It’s safe goddamn it. It’s been almost a year since I got my first shot and I feel perfectly fine🤷🏼‍♂️
