The fact that getting vaccinated/boosted "frees your mind from worry" is part of the problem. Those who think they are unlikely to spread the current variant because they've been vaccinated are exactly those who will behave in such a carefree way that they will be more likely to spread current variants.
Well no silly, I thought I explained that there's no way I'll, "be getting close". I meant that I won't be all paranoid walking past someone in a store or the like.

Please read paragraph 3 in post #73 again.

If your concern is entirely for yourself, sure, that makes sense. No worry whatsoever as to whether you might be passing COVID on to that person you just walked past.

Neither of those studies cover Omicron.
I never thought I would see anyone more exhausting than Sheldon Cooper.
As soon as you are proven wrong on something, you go on to your next topic of idiocy.

The CDC has many reports on that since Omicron was discovered on the African Continent.

Let's see if you have any big boy pants and can put them on and find out all by yourself.

Dude you can flog this as much as you want, but I haven't had a cold in more than 20 years, let alone be passing covid infections.

I don't get close enough to anybody to get covid, so I won't be passing it on. And that's above and beyond whether or not "I'm only thinking of myself".

Now go fu*king argue with your other two foils. The closest you'll ever get to me is through Techspot's servers. So, sleep well tonight.

"Let's see if you can find it".

Anybody could make up any factoid and say such a thing.

There are no peer reviewed controlled randomized studies that show Omicron to be less transmissable among the vaccinated. I can't prove a negative, but you can absolutely prove me a wrong with just one study.

Are you honestly saying that Fauci is wrong about this?

Fauci has been wrong plenty, but he has never been wrong based on current observations and available information. That's why he is still trustworthy, and why you are not.

Now, hit the net tRUMP Jr. What I said you should research is out there and surprise! You are wrong again.
Just this once, lift yourself above the Orange Flush.

Says the guy who earlier today said "it takes the worry out of being close".

Are you really going to suggest that you not having a cold in 20 years proves that you can't and won't spread COVID? Really?

The Science is strong with you.

His assessment that "Omicron will find just about everybody" was based on current observations and available information.

And you really need to try separating this topic from politics. That's exactly what drives people to stop thinking.

That was a late 50's and 60's TV commercial slogan for "Ban" deodorant", and I was yanking your chain with it..

I see I was successful. "The naivete is strong with you".

And I gotta ask...

"I haven't had a cold in more than 20 years, let alone be passing covid infections."

If that's true, why would you need to be vaccinated?

While you are researching you past comment on Omicron, I ask you to look up generalization. He cleared that up many times. But you didnt know that did you?

You may be right for the first time here. You just sound and "reason" the same way the chubby orange does.

Well, cold viruses are aerosols, and very easily transmitted. And since you can't spread them until you've been exposed to them, I'd say I have a damn good chance of avoiding, or spreading, covid.

Because I felt like it, and it was the right thing to do..Oh, and it was free, the same as the flu shot I get every year as well, whether I need it or not.

BTW, with that last line, are you calling me a liar? Since I don't have a spray tan, wear makeup, shoe lifts, or need to wear "Depends". who knows, I may actually be telling the truth

I am providing direct quotes. "He cleared that up" carries no weight. Show your work.

Page 11... while it doesn't stop it - and we don't know exactly WHY yet - there is still slightly lower transmission among the vaccinated than the unvaccinated...

And yes, this is Omicron...

Again... I welcome you to present a study that shows that vaccines DON'T help reduce transmission... in science, you CAN prove a negative...

You have posted tons of misinformation in this thread... and have yet to provide a shred of evidence... we await your glory...

Am I seeing this right? This dude is asking for proof?
We finally have a pinpoint definition of gumption!

Ok, but first add that to the research I asked for.

Show your work!!! šŸ¤£

You KNOW so much more do you? Please feel free to share this newfound knowledge! Care to provide any evidence for your lies?
yes there is enough publicly available info now. We know you're full of it, and for some reason want to be in a perpetual state of lockdown. Go get another booster, I'm sure pfizer will let you know what's in it eventually

Yes... there IS enough publicly available knowledge... and it ALL says GET VACCINATED!

I await ANY evidence you care to share to the contrary...
