Why I’m Not Getting The Vaccine

I am not in favor of forcing people to do things they don’t want to do. So, when Tricia says she doesn’t want to get vaccinated for COVID-19, I just shrug my shoulders and consider the logic of her decision. Does it make sense? I think so. Undoubtedly, others will be horrified. Tricia is not obeying the advice of Dr. Fauci! Burn the evil witch!

Did I get one of the COVID-19 vaccines? Yes. I got the moderna vaccine, and I will be taking the second shot. Not happy about the risks involved, but I am a relatively old guy, and I don’t want to take the chance of passing COVID-19 to my lady. That said, I don’t see much point in my children and grandchildren in getting vaccinated, but my children are old enough to make their own decisions.

Does everyone make good decisions? No, but there is no one wise enough we can trust except our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus to make decisions for everyone. For the time being, it appears Jesus doesn’t want the job. That is probably because most of us are so ridiculously critical.
Check the Bible. God doesn’t accept our foolish criticism.

Freedom Through Empowerment

First let me say the obligatory, “I not an anti vaxxer.”  While my faith in government and public health authorities has been utterly destroyed this past year due to their collective horrible pandemic response, I believe vaccines as a whole have brought us miraculous benefits.  I also think, at this point, the people who are vulnerable to a bad case of Covid should get the vaccine and that those of us who are not should not feel pressured to do so.

So What’s My Beef With These New Vaccines?

1.  Based on my age, health and lifestyle, my chances of suffering a severe bout of Covid, let alone death are very small. Injecting experimental drugs in to my body to combat a virus I stand a 99.98% of surviving doesn’t just seem absurd, it is.

2.  Not one of the vaccines are FDA approved.  They have Emergency Use Approval…

  1. Good writeup, thanks for sharing Citizen Tom.
    I have no plans to take the new mRNA vaccine.
    I think for people in the highest risk categories it is a good decision, but most people are not in the high risk categories.
    There is much evidence to indicate asymptomatic carriers are not (typically) disease vectors.
    Since the coronavirus mutates quickly, I see pharmaceuticals pushing a yearly vaccine for covid as they do the yearly influenza shots. I do not support that.
    mRNA vaccines have high potential for solving very egregious afflictions like MS, which I do fully support for folks in those risk categories (if and when available). But I think there are too many unknown longterm effects at this time for it to be either obligatory or widespread (I fear longterm autoimmune implications from this type of vaccine).

  2. Tom

    I have taken two shots of Pizer with minimal effects.

    Being 80 years old and told by a long-time family doctor that if I get Covid I will be toast, the decision was easy. I had a simple chance incentive to choose to take the shot or risk becoming toasted.

    My son and daughter families both become infected and only had mild flue like symptoms.

    In my opinion, everyone should make their own choices. If they do not have hospitalization insurance, and relatively healthy and contract the virus, so be it.

    Problem in our socialized medicine, anyone who contracts the virus and does not have insurance will be accepted in emergency hospitals and the costs paid for by government taxpayers.

    And if they decide not to take the shots, and then get the covid, there is no monetary incentives for them to discern that if they do become infected, they have to pay.

    What is probably needed is for government to give the choice to people whether they want it the shot or not. And if they refuse and get it, they have to pay the costs instead of taxpayers.

    By doing so, it provides a monetary incentive which most people now do not have in our socialized humanitarian laws of governing where anyone who walks into a hospital emergency room must by law be admitted regardless if they can pay or not.

    Regards and goodwill blogging.

      The vaccines have an emergency approval. That’s why pressuring people to take the vaccines does not make much sense. In addition, as you indicated, the risk from COVID19 varies from person to person. Since the supply of the vaccine is limited, it is kind of silly to pressure people who don’t want it to get it.

  3. It was a great post that describes my take on this to a T. Thanks for posting it. I support anybody who feels better taking it. Just don’t try to force me to do it. I hope every freedom loving American who does take the vaccine, fights for the right of others to NOT take it.

  4. By the time everyone who wants to take the experimental drug, has, it shouldn’t be an emergency and I’ll wait for the final FDA approval, then likely won’t. No one near me is at risk, plus I’m pretty sure I’m already immune

    1. I believe they have blood tests that would detect evidence of whether or not you have had COVID-19. Otherwise, you probably are not immune. Still, if you don’t want to take one of the vaccines, I don’t see much point in complaining. I think we worry too much about making everyone think like “me.”

      I am not God. So, why should everyone agree with “me.” The majority is not God. So, why should everyone do the bidding of the majority? Our leaders cannot be trusted. So, why should anyone trust them? Because they are gods? 🤣🤣🤣🤣

      If there is anything that our gaffe prone, lying president has proven, it is that we should not take the people we elect too seriously and give them any more power than we absolutely must give them.
