You're still going to need to wear a mask AND social distance after the vaccine.

Why You Should Still Wear A Mask And Avoid Crowds After Getting The COVID-19 Vaccine

... probably not in perpetuity, but definitely for a while. Good article.

From today's New York Times: The Moring briefing:

Quote:
Early in the pandemic, many health experts — in the U.S. and around the world — decided that the public could not be trusted to hear the truth about masks. Instead, the experts spread a misleading message, discouraging the use of masks.

Their motivation was mostly good. It sprung from a concern that people would rush to buy high-grade medical masks, leaving too few for doctors and nurses. The experts were also unsure how much ordinary masks would help.

But the message was still a mistake.

It confused people. (If masks weren’t effective, why did doctors and nurses need them?) It delayed the widespread use of masks (even though there was good reason to believe they could help). And it damaged the credibility of public health experts.

“When people feel as though they may not be getting the full truth from the authorities, snake-oil sellers and price gougers have an easier time,” the sociologist Zeynep Tufekci wrote early last year.

Now a version of the mask story is repeating itself — this time involving the vaccines. Once again, the experts don’t seem to trust the public to hear the full truth.

you should whine more about people asking you to wear a small piece of cloth over your mouth during a once in a hundred year pandemic. It’s not childish at all.

In all honesty, who gives a **** what the docs did. We are all adults. They had to stop the rush on equipment. If you’re going to pick a fight how about you come up with an alternative that would have avoided the mad rush. Otherwise you’re just whining to whine like a bunch of whiners

Agreed. This will be temporary.

I find it frustrating that we had the Spanish flu, which we all know was worse, and then returned to normal. But this one, no no no, click bait articles are the order of the day, 'this is the new normal'. Blah blah blah.

Give me a break. We WILL be going back to normal. Capitalism depends on it.

unfortunately, the Great Reset that so many western leaders want is in full swing now. This is their chance to bring capitalism to their knees. It may have been accidental, but it's happening. I'm sure oofff is quite thrilled with this.

I know I wouldn't be if it happened to my family

that's just three of the most powerful people on the planet heartily endorsing the Great Reset. Which, as I'm sure you know, is a plot designed to overthrow Capitalism, using the "pandemic" as an opportunity to do so.
