What I won’t post on Facebook, but I want to

I keep seeing this post on Facebook about the vaccines.

It’s driving me nuts, so I fixed it.

Original:

A friend of mine posted this and it hit the nail on the head for me so I decided to repost it…..I’m vaccinated and, no, I don’t know what’s in it -this vaccine, the ones I had as a child, nor in the Big Mac, or in hot dogs, or in other treatments…whether it’s for cancer, AIDS, the new shingles vaccine, or vaccines for infants or children. I trust my doctor when he says it’s needed. I also don’t know what’s in Ibuprofen, Tylenol, or other meds, it just cures headaches & my pains …I don’t know what’s in the ink for tattoos, vaping, or every ingredient in my soap or shampoo or even deodorants. I don’t know the long term effect of cell phone use or whether or not that restaurant I just ate at REALLY used clean foods and washed their hands.In short …There’s a lot of things I don’t know and never will… I just know one thing: life is short, very short, and I still want to do something other than just going to work every day or staying locked in my home. I still want to travel and hug people without fear and find a little feeling of life “before”.As a child and as an adult I’ve been vaccinated for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, chicken pox, and quite a few others; my parents and I trusted the science and never had to suffer through or transmit any of the said diseases … just saying.I am vaccinated, respect my choice …I’m vaccinated, not to please the government but:* To not die from Covid-19.* To NOT clutter a hospital bed if I get sick.* To hug my loved ones * To Not have to do PCR or antigenic tests to go out dancing, go to a restaurant, go on holidays and many more things to come …* To live my life.* To have my kids/grandkids go back to school and play sports. * For Covid-19 to be an old memory.* To protect us.Text copied, you can too.

My version, with my changes bolded

A friend of mine posted this and it hit the nail on the head for me so I decided to repost it….. but I decided to fix it first

I’m not vaccinated because I don’t know what’s in it -this vaccine.

The ones I had as a child – I can research and find out what’s in them, or I can ask my doctor and I’m pretty sure he’ll give me a print out that lists all the ingredients and possible side effects. 

I don’t know what’s in the Big Mac, or in hot dogs, or in other treatments…whether it’s for cancer, AIDS, the new shingles vaccine, or vaccines for infants or children but again, I can ask my doctor and I’m pretty sure he’ll be able to tell me.   I trust my doctor when he says it’s needed.

I also don’t know what’s in Ibuprofen, Tylenol, or other meds, it just cures headaches & my pains, but those meds come with a package insert that tells me what’s in them and what possible side effects are

I don’t know what’s in the ink for tattoos, vaping, but I’m not dumb enough to do either of those things,  or every ingredient in my soap or shampoo or even deodorants but if I bother to read the packages, the ingredients are all listed.   I don’t know the long term effect of cell phone use- but I can research and make a decision based on that research –  or whether or not that restaurant I just ate at REALLY used clean foods and washed their hands –they probably didn’t but I have an immune system that’s stronger than a little bit of dirt.

In short …

There’s a lot of things I don’t know and never will…

I just know one thing: life is short, very short, and I still want to do something other than just going to work every day or staying locked in my home. I still want to travel and hug people without fear and find a little feeling of life “before”.  And I don’t think the government or anyone else has the right to tell me that I can’t do that.

As a child and as an adult I’ve been vaccinated for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, chicken pox, and quite a few others; my parents and I trusted the science and never had to suffer through or transmit any of the said diseases … just saying.  I was never vaccinated for most of those things and yet here I am – still kicking

I am NOT vaccinated, please respect my choice.   If you ARE vaccinated, you should be safe from me, so please stop with the shaming and discrimination.   

There, I fixed it.

    I feel sad for your friend’s ignorance. I do know what is in my soaps and foods. I do read labels and research ingredients. I’ve even looked the ingredients in the covid vaccines, and based on the buffering agents, I am concerned that my over-active immune system will cause me problems if exposed to them. Sincerely, Crabby Patty

    The internet. Good for so many things!
    (I have an autoimmune disorder, so I have to research everything I come in contact with. ☹️)

  3. Yes, yes, yes! I’m so glad I deleted my Facebook account and don’t have to see those kinds of posts anymore. I’ve received the polio and small pox vaccines and a few flu shots. After a very bad reaction to the pneumonia vaccine, I’m just not ready to try this one.
    Why do other people think they have a right to my medical history? And try to talk/shame me into something that’s not right for me? Peer pressure much!

    • The thing is with me – the more they push, the harder I did in my heels.

      Those are the same vaccines (polio, small pox and a few flu shots) I had as a child too,) I did have the pneumonia shot but reacted to it so they said I shouldn’t have the 2nd one, so I’m not crazy about having any other vaccines either, I had measles, rubella, chicken pox, and mumps as a child, because they didn’t have the vaccines then, and I’m still here kicking too :).

      • We didn’t even get polio shots, the only vaccine I got was small pox and I’m not sure why my mom caved on that one. It might have been a requirement for school and she wanted us to get an education.

        I probably got the polio because my dad was in the Air Force and we were over seas and ton of shots were required (Typhus, Typhoid, Cholera etc,. Polio was drops on a sugar cube, so we didn’t mind lol.

  4. I’ve never used Facebook. It’s too fake for me. I’m a real person with flaws so seeing all the curated posts makes me feel like there is something wrong with me when I know it’s them, not me.
    I’m proud of you for not posting this to Facebook. It’s not worth getting into an argument with a friend.
    I do have to say that after reading the statistics coming from Israel and the UK, we are going to see a lot of people defending their choice to be vaccinated as they discover that just maybe it wasn’t the best decision.
