But I will still be labeled an anti vax loser that is killing the country because I don't think people should be forced to get multiple injections.

Has anyone heard if they are going to start doing antibody tests so people that have had Covid can opt out of the vaccine and not be punished?
Recent studies show that, particularly with Omicron, vaccines (including a booster) provide significantly higher antibody levels and more protection against infection than natural immunity alone. It's childish and dumb not to get vaccinated. It's a free, effective and safe way to reduce the risks from a potentially deadly virus. Don't be an idiot. Get vaccinated.

Natural immunity is natural, it is still not as strong as the anti bodies and immunity you get from having recovered from Covid.

Huh? Natural immunity is what you get from having had COVID. It's the same thing. And, it's not as strong a defense against COVID as getting vaccinated and boosted.

Your tax dollars are paying whether you get a shot or not. And the cost to the government is around $20/shot. A bargain at ten times the price.

I wish dickheads (not pointing to anybody) would put a cork in their touting of the vaccine.

And I wish ass-holes like you (Iím not going to play the same passive-aggressive games as you) would stop lying about the vaccines.

Unlike the vaccine, Lefties aren't DEMANDING I accept disaster relief or face consequences...

What vaccines are you talking about? If you are referring to the jab, the only lies I have seen have come from Dr. Fauci, the MSM and our own Government.
