    "The basis for an open society is vaccinations. 86 % of all invited (from 12 years and up) have received 1+ dose. 96 % of everyone above 50 are fully vaccinated." he tweeted Friday. "Throughout the pandemic [Denmark] has had higher acceptance than many comparable countries. No mandates needed."

    I think there's a correlation between being a happy country and trust of modern medicine.

    Also been fielding super weird ideas about the vaccines, one family friend said Pfizer had HIV in it (apparenty the japanese said so), so I asked why he didn't get the J&J which is fairly widely available, and no response. That heart doctor did a real mess being ignorant, with her "spike protein does the most damage so Pfizer vaccine does the same damage to you" statement. So in case anyone here had some doubts, the spike protein in the live virus does indeed cause massive inflammation (and subsequently this causes damage), but it causes this when it binds and unlocks your cells. The vaccine protein does not have the ability to bind and unlock. Even the ones produced by the mRNA cannot bind and unlock.

    An aunty-vaxer gives this reason for not getting the jabs. The world is over-populated so they designed the vaccine to kill everyone who gets it.

    Then they should invest in mortuaries and incinerators. So far we are looking at around 12 million people in the country that got the jab. Thats a lot of bodies to dispose of. Might just be the next get-rich-quick scheme, next to government PPE tenders.

    I think I should invest then, those numbers will be much higher! They made the fatal flaw of vaccinating all the Healthcare workers first....

    Looking at that clip, everyone was smoking, no health regulations with the food, no one wore seat belts ..... and they were all over 100 years old.

    .... Go figure

    Weirdly enough the first dose beat me up badly, second dose was way more painful on the injection site but no other side effects.

    I was the opposite. First dose was no issues at all, second dose yesterday morning was fine and I had a slight headache all day BUT last night I had huge fevers and body aches and a blinding headache etc etc. Barely slept a wink and then it went away all of a sudden mid morning this morning and now I’m fine. Was horrid though.

    I guess he never had his tonsils out either because that gives you a sore throat.

    He was also told his cholesterol and blood pressure were out of control and needs to change his lifestyle so he had a huge steak and a lot of beer to go against Dr’s orders so you must know what I’m dealing with here.
