That's not entirely true, and there are many scientists who argue the opposite. See "leaky vaccines" "immune escape" - Dr Geert van den Bosche...

I totally get that and I respect your decision to get vaccinated. I respect that you think the vaccine can help with your heart condition. I am VERY close to somebody similar - 4 heart surgeries, a lifelong heart condition - and he doesn't want to take it b/c he is worried about further inflammation. I can't see why that makes him an idiot?

I understand all that but that doesn't make people hesitant to get the vaccine idiots that we should wish death upon does it?

I think we should have a real conversation about the vaccines safety, build real informed consent, and learn to live with COVID, because vaxx or not it's here to stay even hopefully in a mild fashion. We should NOT quarantine healthy people, lockdown the world, and mandate experimental medications.
