    Nah, they’ll just shoot it with their AR-15‘s. We’ll be back to that soon enough.

    And this is part of the problem. We need vaccines that not only prevent you from getting sick, but also prevent you from spreading it. As long as every single person is a potential Typhoid Mary, can we ever truly achieve herd immunity? Or am I missing something here?

    Are you less likely to spread it compared to those unvaccinated or does it not matter?

    It's still worth remembering that all data we have is that vaccination significantly reduces the infection rate. Even going with every single person is a potential Typhoid Mary, they're all significantly less likely to be one than the unvaccinated are. Transmission doesn't have to be set to 0, it just has to be reduced such that 1000 infected people infect less than 1000 new people, and making it so most of those people are less likely to get infected will drive things downward.

    The real problem is still the dumbasses who won’t get vaccinated

    Whenever either A.) they open up the patents.

    B.) when we start shipping vaccines over there in mass quantities

    When every deer in North America is a possible Typhoid Mary we may already be sunk on herd immunity.

    That’s not really how herd immunity works as far as I’m aware, and I don’t think these vaccines protect against transmission enough to attain such a thing in any case. That’s what I’ve read on the subject at least.

    Or the bigger ones who want to punish businesses for having mask mandates.

    I'm surprised the Guardians of Plague actually haven't tried stopping the distribution of vaccines yet. We've only seen at least one school here in Florida which banned teachers from getting the vaccine and/or forcing students to quarantine if they did.

    “I killed that guy with my AR-15 because I was defending myself from COVID” is totally an excuse we’ll hear soon.

    Democrats are both completely incompetent, and also capable of creating and updating a global fake virus and plandemic every couple of months for the sole purpose of targeting Republicans.

    And Republicans assume this, because its what they themselves would do if they could in their darkest fantasies...and continue to do with programs such as gerrymandering and voter fraud audits and storming the Capitol to overthrow the government

    Creating a virus to target people you don't like is basically the plot of No Time to Die. Nice try, Fox News.

    Is fox trying to explain away the fact that overwhelming amounts of the people who end up in hospital due to the virus are republican by saying it’s because it’s all manufactured by the democrats and not because said people don’t take the vaccine

    Planning their next whataboutism to try to deflect from their commentary about being glad that Kylo Rittenhouse killed “leftists” and defend their “right” to kill people they don’t like by claiming that “Democrats are doing it by manufacturing viruses!”
