I wish you luck because luck will be required as your current health condition is no protection against an airborne virus... additionally... death isn't the only long term outcome after infection. Your unvaccinated status can make you an asymptomatic carrier and one who causes viral mutations...

Society thanks you...


Vaccinating everyone regardless of risk creates the risk for mutations and at that mutations that the vaccinations do not work on. 

It is roughly akin to everyone running around taking antibiotics.   


Nature's a bitch.  She's got her ways.

I asked you before to knock it off with the vaccine denialism. Not going to do it again.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

You have also been asked to provide your sources or proof of you incorrect claims... not once have you done so...

bl8jaxnative is equating covid vaccine to antibiotics which is sooo wrong.  Most of the problems with antibiotics is using them for problems they weren't ever intended to treat, such as colds, many viruses, etc.  Also, using them as a preventative for livestock, patients not taking the complete regimen, and using expired meds given to them by friends/family.  We can get over this nightmare until most people think about the country as a whole and not listening to the talking heads online and on Fox.

Bl8 is spreading false information. Period.

Good God, this is pure garbage, and hot takes like this are a huge part of why we've found ourselves on the precipice of another disaster.

I've been talking with friends who work in multiple hospitals around the city, and they universally agree that this fourth wave is worse than even the pre-vaccine peak. It's also showing no sign of slowing.

This was all so preventable...

^Well said. And this forum will not be a platform for further misinformation, particularly on this topic.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

I started this thread 3 weeks ago with predictions of the magnitude of this wave.  And, even then, there were predictions well before that.  That such predictions are coming true now, unfortunately, certainly would validate that the medical community knows of that which they speak.  Why anyone would still question their information and calls for action including masks and vaccines after all this is beyond me.

Any person who thought American's would do the "proper" thing and get vaccinated isn't paying attention. Cigarette smoking kills, and has been a huge public health problem for decades. But..............

"Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the United States. Nearly 40 million U.S. adults still smoke cigarettes, and about 4.7 million middle and high school students use at least one tobacco product, including e-cigarettes. Every day, about 1,600 U.S. youth younger than 18 years smoke their first cigarette. Each year, nearly half a million Americans die prematurely of smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke. Another 16 million live with a serious illness caused by smoking. Each year, the United States spends more than $225 billion on medical care to treat smoking-related disease in adults."

Can't fix stupid.

You can add Obesity to that list.  Per GWU:

Estimates of the medical cost of adult obesity in the United
States (U.S.) range from $147 billion to nearly $210 billion
per year.
 The majority of the spending is generated from treating
obesity-related diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular
disease, among others.
 Obesity is responsible for $61.8 billion in Medicare and
Medicaid spending.
o In the absence of obesity, Medicare and Medicaid spending would be 8.5 percent and
11.8 percent lower, respectively.
 If obesity rates continue on their current track, medical costs associated with obesity are
estimated to increase by $48 - $66 billion per year in the U.S., and the loss of economic
productivity could be as high as $580 billion annually by 2030

Baptist hospitals reach maximum capacity as COVID cases surge in Jacksonville

Quote
A surge in COVID-19 related cases in Jacksonville and beyond has created what Baptist is calling a 'critical' situation.

On Thursday, the hospital tweeted that hospitals are at maximum capacity and our emergency centers have reached a critical point.

"We are asking the community to please do what they can to help," said Baptist in the tweet. "... We are caring for patients with critical emergencies first."

Baptist says if you are experiencing symptoms related to heart attack, stroke, or severe respiratory issues, call 911 or get to an ER ASAP. You will be seen right away.

However, if you are experiencing a non-life-threatening health issue, Baptist says you should contact your Primary Care physician's office, or seek urgent care in person or online via telehealth.

Baptist's Head of Emergency Room Operations tells First Coast News that every “nook and cranny” of the hospitals are being utilized, which includes break rooms, conference rooms and more.
