High Plains Drifter
Why were you dragging ass? I got my vaxx 5 weeks ago. Now in Texas we're vaxxing anyone 50 years old-plus, and teachers. Our churches are mobilized going to homebound people and vaxxing them. When I got my shot it was only 1A and 1B allowed. 1A is anyone over 65 and 1B is anyone under 65 but with a chronic medical condition. I'm 1B. Now it's anyone over 50 and teachers.I am getting my shot this sat for first dose and april 10th for 2nd.
It's not a vaccine of the Salk model. It doesn't need the years of testing a Salk vaccine does. All it does is teach your body to identify as an enemy invader the spike protein the virus uses to latch on to your cells and start to incubate and multiply. It does not give you the virus itself in any form, alive dead or partial. Salk vaccines do, it's usually a form of the dead virus, with a Salk-type vaccine. This is why new strains of the same virus require booster shots. With this, the spike protein is common to all SARS viruses and hosts of others, so different variants are still protected against. If millions of vaccinated people all over the world isn't a big enough test then I don't know what to tell you. It's safe and effective. Even Donald Trump said so.I certainly hope the vaccines turn out to be safe but I do not trust something that has so little testing.
