Millions or billions of viruses around for millions or billions of years and we're not extinct.
What viral load makes us sick?

Also, since they can't see viruses without an electron microscope which was invented ( I believe) in 1930 we don't have 100 years empirical data.
I believe that the first discovery of a virus (the tobacco mosaic virus) happened in the late 1800s - that's more than 100 years ago. We also don't need to "see" a virus to know it exists.

I wanted the J&J shot but those are set aside for teachers and essential workers by my state jack as Governor Wolf.
So hubby and I had no choice but to get the Moderna shot. With this double variant going around we wanted some protection and he has read up on it since he worked in the field and it will give us protection against the double variant.
We had no issues with the shot. I had a sore arm and a bruise. He had nothing. We are both in our 60's.
We had a death in the family just recently were my nieces mother in law died from Covid. She had not got the vaccine yet. And she had no idea she had Covid when it turned into pneumonia.

I wasn't going to, but something changed my mind and I have an appointment to get the J & J vaccine this Friday afternoon.

We are currently seeing a surge in cases here in our area in SW Michigan. One hospital nearby has 99% of beds occupied; not all are virus patients...but the ones who do have it, are high acuity and are in ICU beds.

I have also noted that the HHS in our state are pushing the shot in an overdrive fashion. This kind of makes me wonder if the 2 events are connected? Even teens can get it now.

DH is a Medic and he isn't seeing cases in our AO...but the nearby city is under siege and considered a viral "hot-bed". We are also probably a drop off point for any of the border crossers who are being relocated or disseminated through the country...Thanks to our guvna's favored status by the current administration.

I have decided that I will remain firm in the conviction of "No Thank You...I must decline the generous offer of this experimental treatment." My life is in the hands of The Almighty...I will leave this life when it is my time and only then.

Take Care Everyone and Have a Blessed Day!

See my post on my vax thread from this morning:


Further, as I’ve said on other threads, I still have no one to care for my pups should I become incapacitated.
they can give me the vax after i am dead and not before...

Neither here nor there.
Orion Commander is having total knee replacement surgery at the end of this month so per his surgeons demand we won’t be getting the vaccine until three months later. We’re both wanting the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
