It was a perfectly sensible analogyWell apologies we may be at cross purposes. I acknowledge that some people have a specific medical reason to be wary of the vaccine. My ambulance analogy was aimed not at them, but at the vast majority of the population, who do not.
I've not seen any, but very few people have said how they felt after having the jab. The most common complaint I've seen is "feeling crap for a few days after". A broad statement in much the same way as people react to temperature extremes, saying it's hot/freezing. It's to get a bit warmer/colder before I feel either as much as most folk. Marks me as "odd" again, so what.the people with genuine concerns are in a tiny minority. Are there any others apart from you on here who have suffered badly?
I'll ask you a direct, off-topic, question. Can you take painkillers, I can't. The last one given stopped the heart. Given/used in error in January 2012. I happened to be in A&E at the time.I'm struggling to believe that a significant proportion of the population has a history of strong adverse reaction to previous vaccines.
Because those previous vaccines made it through clinical trials programmes specifically designed to weed out vaccines that trigger strong adverse reactions in a significant proportion of those vaccinated.
I told my ambulance driver I could have ridden to the hospital faster - except I had a broken spine...Refusing the vaccine on the basis of potential side effects is like refusing to let an ambulance take you to the hospital on the basis that it might crash on the way.
Well I'm sorry that you are vulnerable in that way and wish you all the best, but I really don't understand how that is relevant to the suggestion that I am putting forward which, as I have said a number of times, is only aimed at the majority of people.I'll ask you a direct, off-topic, question.

Because even before a vaccine was announced, I knew I'd be in a minority. I accepted that and never tried to push what happened to me as being likely to happen to the majority.Well I'm sorry that you are vulnerable in that way and wish you all the best, but I really don't understand how that is relevant to the suggestion that I am putting forward which, as I have said a number of times, is only aimed at the majority of people.
If it’s bothersome, don’t wear the badge?been wearing my "I got my vaccine button" & been geeting mixed reactions. a woman working at a Dunkins counter in CT asked me how I got vaxed. I said I was old & she exclaimed "I'm old too". but she was too busy for us to talk further. I remember the feeling of ppl telling me they got vaxxed but I had not yet. it's bothersome. this is gonna be a long haul & there is definitely a lot of access disparity
