If you doubt anything you have fucked it for everyone. Thats what John just said at 9 minutes. Great logic. I never want to have an original thought again. I also love that you have to be cautious about certain studies but none of the ones John considers a fact.

Before covid herd immunity meant a certain amount of the population got sick and recovered before a general immunity was built. The vaccine is not something you should rush into. I'm all for traditional vaccines, don't let this make you think people who are hesitant are anti vax. The covid survival rate is insanely high. Please people think about what you are signing up for

But it's stupid the vaccine is only for stage 1 covid. By now we're all infected with stage 2 or 3. So having the vaccines won't help. And that's why doctors and researchers don't even take the vaccine.

The question remains; what long term effects( 2-4 years or longer from now) these vaccines will have? Simply nobody can answer this due to lack of important commodity-TIME itself, so John stop be sure sure that this drug is safe cos you don’t know, the label should say”TAKE ON YOUR OWN RISK”

He acts like the virus can't still mutate even if everyone got the vaccine. The cdc has been contradicting itself the entire time. Right now on the cdc website it says "if everyone in a room is vaccinated they don't have to wear a mask". Then somewhere else also on the website it says "even if you received the vaccine you should still wear masks & practice social distance up to six feet". If thats not a clear sign that they are still trying to figure it all out, I don't know what else to say. Y'all got it, let me know how it all turns out...........🤷🏿‍♂️

I'm not even a "good" scientist. I am scientifically trained, but not actively in a science field. And I know this shit! How? How is is so hard to look for these answers? I got a f-ing booklet when I got mine, explaining every question I had. My only concern was needing them to put it in my right arm because of my birth-control implant. Look, I get that people are scared, but that is no excuse to ignore data and believe every headline. The news exaggerates, misconstrues, and flat out lies all the time. (Fox, CNN, ABC, all of'em) Look at where they are getting their information from, look at that, then make up your mind. If its coming from a blog post, maybe take a little more time to find a different source. And for the love of logic, don't listen to Info Wars.

Awful show, it used to be good. People let themselves get brainwashed, can't think for themselves, like when genital mutilation (circumcision) is forced upon people by "experts" or worse, religious fanatics. And countless lives are ruined. Do ur research, use common sense, do not believe everything people that call themselves "Experts" say. Very often, they turn out to be wrong. People have a right to decide over their own body and not get vaccines.

I just got my second dose of the vaccine 2 days ago, so I’m now fully vaccinated! But I live in Texas, and I know literally 6 people in total, other than me, who have been vaccinated. Everyone else I know is saying they won’t get vaccinated, and it doesn’t matter what you say. They just think you don’t know what you’re talking about, or you’ve been brainwashed by the ‘mainstream media.’ It’s really frustrating.

That’s very sad, I am sorry for both of your loss. However miscarriages occur in at least 20% of detected pregnancies, even in healthy young women. It’s incredibly common and the current trials of vaccines for pregnant women have not shown a statically significant risks to the fetus. There will be longer running studies but so far it is very promising in terms of safety. Correlation does not equal causation. I spent Christmas in the hospital and it’s taken me 4 months to feel mostly normal again because of the long haul symptoms. I am happily vaccinated and I urge everyone else to get vaccinated as well.

He’s talking about numbers being skewed for vaccine deaths, but he doesn’t realize by giving the facts about comorbidity factors, he’s also tangentially referring to the skewed numbers of covid deaths. But he won’t even address that.

Truth Matters
These vaccines are experimental. They do not have the FDA's full approval. It is bad enough that for years I unknowingly was ingesting poison (NDMA, an ingredient used to make rocket fuel) that was in my blood pressure medicine, Valsartan, which was manufactured in China. Further, it was distributed by NJ-based Solco Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Prinston Pharmaceuticals, which is OWNED by the same Chinese company that somehow 'put' a rocket fuel ingredient in medications. We DO need to ask questions. I, for one, was unaware that China makes a large percentage of medications that Americans are prescribed. I was shocked to find out they own at least one pharmaceutical company in the USA...that company being Prinston Pharmaceuticals and its subsidiary, Solco.

*SHOCKING NEWS :* Nobel Prize winner of 2018, Japanese physician, scientist and immunologist, Dr Tasuku Honjo, caused a sensation today in the media by saying that the *corona virus is not natural.* *If it is natural, it will not have affected the whole world like that.* Because, depending on the nature, the temperature is different in different countries. *If it were natural, it would only have affected countries with the same temperature as China.* Instead, it spreads to a country like Switzerland, the same way it spreads to desert areas. whereas *if it were natural, it would have spread in cold places, but would have died in hot places.* I have done 40 years of research on animals and viruses. *It is manufactured and the virus is completely artificial.* I have worked for 4 years in the Wuhan laboratory in China. I know all the staff of this laboratory well. I called them all after the Corona accident but, all of their phones have been dead for 3 months. It is now understood that all of these laboratory technicians are dead. Based on all of my knowledge and research to date, I can say this with 100 % confidence that Corona is not natural. *It did not come from bats. China made it.* *If what I say today turns out to be false now or even after I die, the government can withdraw my Nobel Prize.* But China is lying and this truth will one day be revealed to all. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tasuku_Honjo [PLEASE FORWARD TO THE LARGEST NUMBER SO THAT THE GUILTY Chinese Communist party MUST PAY WHAT HAPPENS TO US ALL.]
