Agreed, but so does the youtube research thingy.
I don't have any issue with people not being interested in YouTube research. I have problems with people saying "If you didn't go to this level of educational institution you're a moron your opinions don't matter."

LOL anti/non-vaxxers are now being targeted by Russian and Nigerian cyber-scammers, because apparently they'll believe anything haha

I have not verified this yet, but hilarious if true. These are the same people being scammed by the MAGA website donation app settings, so...

I like how progressives have started to pretend that the anti-vax crowd didn't start with, and isn't still full of, hyper progressive hippies.

So it's expiring soon?

Have you thought about getting a booster? And when you should?
I don't think it's "expiring" but given the decreased efficacy against the delta variant, As well as the corollary that a booster shot significantly improves immunity against the Delta variant after 6 months, I will be looking to get a third shot soon. I'm taking care of more Coronavirus patients now than I have at any time since January.
Eventually most if not all of them will be the Delta variant so I have a relatively high chance of exposure in my day-to-day ongoings.

I've been feeling sick after traveling to Guam and I had to get a test today. I'm vaccinated so I feel like I have really bad allergies or a cold, but I will report if I actually have COVID when I hear.

Even with an uptick, as a vaccinated person your chance of this being a different virus is much higher than sars2.
I'm seeing a handful of flus here When I had only one the entire last flu season. I'm also seeing at least four to five RSVs every single day.

Sorry to hear that
I have always wanted to go there...my childhood best friend was from there and now lives there again

I'm just glad it didn't tip over on ya

LOL I remember that.

It's a long ride- I'm west coast, so it was: PDX - SFO - HON - GUM, or you can fly SFO - JPN - GUM, either way you're looking at like 15-20 hours. I was able to get first class so my 18-month old daughter could sleep, but she didn't...

But if you don't mind the ride- or want to take a long layover in Japan or Honolulu, which we've done, it's worth the trip. I'd wait until tourism picks up again and the Tumon hotels and restaurants are open just so you have access, but the food is amazing and the lifestyle is island laid back. Most of the island is uninhabited, so it's like Land of the Lost.

I hope so- I'm mostly concerned about my daughter and I've heard the Delta affects children much more easily.

Let's say I have some other thing (I'm mostly sore throat, headaches, body aches, chills- no coughing, no fever, no respiratory symptoms), I'm tempted to wear a mask at home so she doesn't get sick from me, but would it be better for her to be exposed to these types of things?

Was that a serious question?

Did you test positive?

Yes it's better if she is exposed with a small viral load, and no it's NOT good for you to wear a mask.
Surgical masks, as masks go, sit at 1.9% average particulate matter discharge.
The higher you go, the better it gets, up to N95 with no outlet and N99 w/no outlet(exhaust valves). For the latter 2, the costs(lymphocyte apoptosis/ bacterial infection etc.)from breathing your own exhaust cause your immune system added stress which is counterproductive.
Although your heart is in the right place, it's better just to avoid direct exposure as much as possible, and do the normal sick preventions.
Lots of water, teas etc.
List of supplements:

NAC(banned from Amazon, by direct from "NOW essential")
Vitamin D, 125mcg per 175#
Vit C(emergen-c) 10,000mg daily
Quercetin with bromelain
Zinc(>50mg-200)
Selenium
Melatonin @ night & resting(up to 12mg)
Echinicia w/goldenseal
Magnesium, lysine.
Elderberry, and all dark antioxidant berries.

All these are better directly.
Juicing dandelion greens with carrots etc. will rocket your immune system.

Also pineapple skin tea, and celery root.

She should be doing at least half these, you ALL.
GL.

Hmmmm
Sheep will be sheep if they are doing out of the demands of a bunch of socialists who are led by someone who can’t even think for himself….but, isn’t that what a sheep is? Follow the herd blindly and do whatever they say because you are their property

If I have to, I’ll do it but not now. I’m not an antivaxxer, but I am definitely anti-dementia telling me what to do.
