QuoteHe claims that the vaccine(s) don't work, since the Pfizer CEO got COVID-19 twice. I realize some people are immune (pun intended) to rationality, but what can I say against his claim?
Quote from: Blackleaf on October 09, 2022, 01:31:12 PMVaccines don't make people immune. They prepare the body by exposing it to a piece of, dead sample of, or synthetic mimic of a disease. That way, when the body is exposed to the real thing, its response is quicker, reducing the symptoms and severity of the disease.
Quote from: the_antithesis on October 09, 2022, 08:43:07 PMSo, here's the thing about anti-vaxxers. There were many when vaccines were first invented, sounds reasonable. Inject a disease in to me to prevent me from getting that disease? MADNESS. But that whole movement quickly died out because when vaccines worked, they shut their fucking mouths. So for two hundred years, nothing. Now all of a sudden we have idiots who don't trust the shit that made it possible for them to be here today because their grandfather did not die of polio when he was a child because of vaccines.And it's all because of this asshole Andrew Wakefield. There was nothing before this guy. And Wakefield was trying to create doubt in one particular vaccine SO HE COULD MARKET AND SELL AN ALTERNATIVE VACCINE. The problem here is people are stupid, like how smoking became a symbol for libertarianism. People will say it's about choice and control but will then vote republican without even thinking about it (no one who isn't a billionaire should vote republican)Personally, I'm just waiting for the anti-vaxxers to die. They want to die. I want them to die. They should just hurry the fuck up. The rest of us want our lives to go back to normal.
Quote from: Dark Lightning on October 09, 2022, 09:22:13 PMFucking Wakefield. Though, to be fair, it would just probably have been some other Pied Piper. At least he had his license to practice medicine taken away. Now, if Jenny McCarthy could just croak from a preventable disease...The sad part about anti-vaxxers is that they are just vectors for the continued spread of a disease. If it was only them, we could all stand around, talking about "too bad". But that shit spreads without regard for ignorance or knowledge, and kills many other people who would have not been otherwise exposed.
