  1. Anyone else find it strange that the more that get vaxxed…the more get sick and die??? I mean compare to last year this time. Oh yeah, guess what, flu season about to start. remember that? Flu season???

      1. You did not address what the poster stated and is looking to be more and more likely true. The vaccinated are very likely the reason that Covid is spreading to those who are unvaccinated. Can you tell us the weight, age, and underlying factors of those four who died? I think that would be pretty important if we want to understand the science????

          1. Barney if no name is used it is not violating hippa like you always say. Why can they tell us vaccination status? Wouldn’t that be a hippa violation according to you?

      2. Barney….unvaccinated or “not fully vaccinated”. See they manipulate the wording. So someone could have both shots and on the 13th day after the second shot, they are called not fully vaccinated. You see? Why aren’t they showing truly unvaccinated compared to these other 2 categories?

    1. Oregone ~ I find it amazing you aren’t retired yet? You still in Oregon?

      Newsflash! Influenza (the flu) and COVID-19, the illness caused by the pandemic coronavirus, are both contagious respiratory illnesses, meaning they affect your lungs and breathing, and can be spread to others. Although the symptoms of COVID-19 and the flu can look similar, the two illnesses are caused by different viruses.

      As in not the same. And here I thought you were (are) a healthcare professional.

      Btw ~ the vaccine slows /mitigates the symptoms. Doesn’t stop it. People however have the choice to practice prevention or not.

      1. Frog. No not retired yet. Unfortunately. Apparently a lot of us healthcare workers that have taken care of this community for decades will not be allowed to work after Oct 18. Maybe you will be lucky enough to get the national guard to staff our local hospitals like NY. Not sure how long you have been in C.O, but it was a pleasure caring for you and your family over the years. I will miss that.

        I appreciate you trying to educate me on respiratory viruses. Did you notice there was really no influenza last year? Did you know the PCR test used to diagnose covid has a emergency use from the cdc that will expire in December and a PCR test needs only one molecule to be able to have a positive test, ie… even though you may have influenza and get swabbed for covid, you can be a covid +, not a influenza +.

        How come when people use the small pox or polio example (why aren’t you afraid of polio anymore? Vaccines), well that is true, and you don’t ever worry about getting those after vaccinated right? How come with covid, you can still get it and pass it on? Go look at Israel’s numbers.

    2. Actually I find it strange that a good deal more people are not getting “vaxxed” as more people get sick and die. Prevention is a heck of a lot better than having to rely on whether or not something will cure it.

      1. Don’t find it strange ! Ask the question- why aren’t the two largest groups of un-vaccinated adults in their 70’s and 80’s ? Probably because they are not healthy enough to withstand the effects of the Pfizer virus ! It’s why- “18 leading scientists, including 2 outgoing FDA officials, say COVID-19 booster shots lack evidence and shouldn’t yet be given to the general public”… Dr. Catherine Schuster-Bruce… September 13, 2021… Your link- https://news.yahoo.com/18-leading-scientists-including-2-142053541.html

      2. Martha, you don’t think it’s strange that more people are sick and dying now after a huge percentage of the population is vaccinated? And when you say prevention, you really need to look at the ages of those getting very sick and dying, vast majority are elderly and already have many medical issues. I will say obesity is a huge factor in younger populations that get sick. How come we aren’t doing antibody testing???? Just get the vaxx even if you have natural antibodies? That is not science.

    1. There is currently no standardized singular PCR tests to differentiate between the flu and the corona SARs COV 2 virus… From the AP- “Some newer coronavirus tests can now also simultaneously test whether a patient is positive for influenza, but the CDC’s February 2020 PCR test only has the capacity to detect signs of a COVID-19 infection.” ! So what test is St Charles in Oregon using ? It would explain greatly why the flu all but vanished last year- and corona exploded… false data used to drive a hoax ! Your link… https://apnews.com/article/fact-checking-436833075130

      1. That article you linked to says, “False claims circulated on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram that the CDC’s move meant the agency and the FDA had admitted PCR tests do not work. Some posts online falsely said the test was unable to differentiate between coronavirus and influenza, leading to inflated COVID-19 counts and depressed flu counts.”
