preface: i am not an "anti-vaxxer" by any stretch. i merely have reservations before i commit to anything - whether or not it is for "the greater good." it is my right. suck my fucking dick if you think otherwise.
"trust the science" people make my blood boil. there's not a whole lot of "trust" in scientific and academic fields regarding alternative solutions to the problem; it's either the vaccine or nothing. that's not "trusting the science."
my wife and i have already suffered and recovered from OG covid. would taking the shot give either of us any of the ALLEGED side effects? i'd rather take covid again, at that point.
it's looking more and more that i will have to get the shot what with the executive order mandates. my job is an enterprise company of 1000+ employees and there is a $14000 penalty PER INFRACTION for non-compliance, so of course they will fold. the dept of labor and OSHA will be the ones that flesh out the regulations and details.
anecdotally, i have been working from home since march 2020, but i don't think that will matter - they'll find some way to "convince" holdouts. by guilt or withholding pay. very likely the latter. i can't afford that. the govt knows this.
wild fuckin times we're in
