I'm actually really happy that you can afford to make that decision with your kids. Truly. If I could I think my wife and I would do the same, but not everyone is in that position. So I get irritated when I see people who in the name of their freedom take away from my kids' freedom (I'm not singling you out here, but the broader "people" who actively flout the recommendations to make a statement). 

I can't force anyone to get a vaccine or get their kids vaccinated for COVID (of course we do for many other diseases), but the primary way my kid will not get it at school is if those people mask up in indoor, public settings at the current moment. I don't like it anymore than the next person (I've been wearing a mask at work for 8-10 hours a shift since last summer, I get it, I'm tired of it too).

I can’t disagree with any of this. I always feel the worst for the kids in this entire thing. They have had a rough go of it in a lot of ways. We are very fortunate to be able to homeschool. It has made a world of difference in eliminating one major source of stress and risk for us. I really hope this school year somehow works out for the kids.

Even with every american vaccinated their would still be to much death

 

from your link:

 

Quote

There were a total of 3,907 hospitalizations and 750 deaths among those who had breakthrough infections, although not all of the hospitalizations may have been due primarily to Covid-19.

Regardless, let’s put the 3,907 hospitalizations and 750 deaths in proper perspective. Over 4,000 may sound like a large number when counting something like the number of marmots in your bed. Certainly any death is tragic. But consider the fact that over 150 million people in U.S. have already been fully vaccinated in U.S. Doing a quick calculation with your abacus and your fingers and toes will reveal that the 4,115 cases constitute less than 0.003% of all fully vaccinated people in the U.S.

how is that rate--a little over 20% of .003& "to [sic] much death" compared to the number of unvaccinated people who have died, and compared to the rising infection rate as of late because selfish people won't get vaccinated and/or wear masks?

Its to much for certain governors in this country. Politicians wont care the death rate is around seasonal flu. 

Restrictions will still be in place because of cases and occasional death. The scare of mutations alone is enough for mask mandates.

This is what is going to send me out of Banter for the night. 

4,115 out of ~164,000,000. Even if the level of breakthrough infection was 10 or heck let's say 50 times higher than what has been reported that's still only .125% of vaccinated people.

Then lets open up the country. Its not a big deal if you vaccinated right. Due away with mask and all other BS.

It is indeed a very small number so far. Some of you seem to think my posts are intended to question the effectiveness of the vaccines at preventing serious disease and death, and that causes some angst and defensiveness. Vaccines are very serious business here.

That's not my intent at all. I am not trying to create doubt about the vaccine (the vaccinated are doing enough of that to themselves). I am simply commenting on the "casedemic" and the government reaction to it. This early data is just another log on the fire that boosting everyone forever is still probably not going to stop these clusters of cases that can cause government overreactions and restrictions.

Hope that helps.

 

Take the politics to another forum.

Maybe the focus should be on booting the posters from other regions stirring up trouble instead?

 

Some mods like to see the day to day Functioning disrupted , they will say blah blah blah , but the solution should be simple . If the regional forum members voted for the solution it would be a landslide

I don't think it's too much to ask for less political leans and member trashing.  Anyone can post in whatever sub forum they want and this is a weather forum, not a political one.
