The President will announce that all employers with 100 or more employees will be required to mandate COVID-19 vaccines or require testing at least once a week, and they’ll have to provide paid time off. The new rule will impact over 80 million workers in private sector.

Yes Joe! Grab them by the balls!!! But also, can he do that? Not even European went that far? If this is real, Biden is setting him self up for one-term and a vomited reduction in his approval rating.
I support the President on this but somehow I doubt what Op wrote is even remotely correct. They may encourage employers to make vaccine mandatory but there is no way that the Fed has that type of power over private businesses. Biden will have this power over Federal employees though.

I work in the healthcare industry (non-clinical) and my company has mandated that all employees submit a copy of their vaccination forms and fill out an attestation form.
If you have not gotten vaccinated you will be tested every week. This pisses me off to no end! The company is going to pay for the testing...what a waste of money. Once the un-vaccinated have to start paying for their own weekly tests, they will be quick to get their jabs or risk losing their jobs.

[quote]Based on what evidence? Anyone who'd be strongly against this voted for Trump last year anyway.
That is definitely not true.
And to be mandating this vaccine in [italic]any[/italic] capacity at this stage of its development is fucking insane. It hasn't even been out a year and with the risk of ADE or VAED from people who have had COVID or the vaccine, you're putting people who are reasonably hesitant to take this in a difficult position. For example, Pfizer still isn't even completely done with Phase III clinical trials and won't be making the results of the study public until 24 months after. They're still ongoing.
I am SO baffled how people like me who have (in the past) 100% agreed that outright refusing to get vaccinated for other illnesses is retarded, are now suddenly lumped in with those people because we have a legitimate concern for our own health and safety. I'd rather take precautions not to get the virus and wait until this vaccine has been out long enough and the results of all clinical trials made publicly available. I'm hesitant because I'm terrified of antibody dependent enhancement. That's the problem they kept running into all of these years while trying to develop a coronavirus vaccine. In the animal models, the vaccine cause worse illness as well as lung and liver tissue damage.
This is crazy. And the mentality of people literally wishing death on people like me who never said we'd never get it but wanted to wait a while because of the unique safety concerns with coronavirus vaccines is appalling. I have severe asthma. My mother has scar tissue on her lungs from a previous illness decades ago. If we get vaccinated and then are subjected to the virus and end up getting more severely ill, we could die. If we get COVID...we could die. Our best course of action FOR OURSELVES is to avoid getting sick at all and not taking anything that could potentially make us sicker.
Seriously, what the ever-loving fuck is going on with you people? Just step back and think for a minute. Calm down and think about what you're advocating here and understand that everyone's immune system and medical situation is not the fucking same! This issue should be discussed with both sides taken into consideration. Yet somehow, it has only produced extremists on both sides, and it's incredibly disconcerting.
I mean...again, Pfizer is STILL testing the effectiveness of their vaccine with an estimated completion date of July 30, 2023.
Do we still have efficacy (the most basic mechanism of a vaccine) clinical trials going on for MMR? Influenza? Polio? Varicella? No. There are trials, but usually for more specified pathologies and the vaccine efficacy in those groups. They're not still testing to see if they just work. They are, however, doing that with this vaccine. And already we're talking about mandates? Why couldn't they have just released it and let whoever wanted to take it take it and then, a few years down the road once it's been out, bring up mandates? Why are they rushing people? And why are so many of you ok with that?

He cannot even get fellow Democrats to vote with him (who the fuck does Manchin think he is?). The GOP already rigged the 2024 Election which means the only question is which Trump Loony Toon is moving into the White House (if not Trump himself).

The vaccinated are also spreading COVID, though. You cannot compare the two viruses. They don't even function the same, they're in a completely different family. That's not how this works, sweetie. That's not how any of this works.

I'm ok with that because this is a fucking WORLD WIDE PANDEMIC. Over 4 MILLION people have died and the longer idiots like you keep putting off getting the vaccine, the more people will die.
These are not normal times. In normal times, yes, we would wait and see. We cannot afford to wait and neither can you. Each day you don't get vaccinated you are one step closer to getting Covid and possibly passing it to other before you end up drowning in your own lung fluid. This is one thing you can do for the greater good and it's likely the only thing in your life you will be asked to do for your fellow man.

Sweetie, the vaccinated are still spreading this and there is a possibility that the vaccines may cause more severe illness. Also, the more people that get vaccinated in a population, the more likely that a vaccine resistant strain will evolve when transmission isn't properly controlled.
They lifted restrictions on those vaccinated earlier this year, knowing full well that another variant was out and that the vaccines would likely not protect against it. They should not have done that. By allowing the vaccinated to move about without getting on top of the virus, they have made this worse. I'm not injecting myself with something that could possibly make me sicker, and you shouldn't be painting everyone with a broad brush considering that not everyone's immune system is exactly the same. That's insane and you are not thinking clearly at all.

Within Australia, reports are for 10x as many deaths from adverse reactions related to the COVID-19 vaccines as compared to every other vaccine combined over the last 20 years.
My source is the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) of Australia. They have a Database of Adverse Event Notifications (DAEN) that's a lot like the FDA's VAERS, minus the voluntary aspect and thus integrated with the medical system. I wouldn't be surprised if the number is incorrectly blown up or down (just like the COVID-19 deaths), but it's still a useful source of information when speaking to those who trust the TGA.
Note: Each of these bolded headings are a link to the data-pull from DAEN. It's easily digestible, but I've summarised below each of them.
51,473 adverse reactions as a single suspect medicine.
484 deaths related to the vaccine.
31,084 adverse reactions as a single suspect medicine.
287 deaths related to the vaccine.
Every non-COVID vaccine since 2001:
10,669 adverse reactions as a single suspect medicine.
48 deaths related to the vaccines.
Conclusions based on this information:
The consensus/narrative over here is that Pfizer/Moderna are a lot safer than AstraZeneca. AstraZeneca is also a lot easier to be injected with, since we require qualifications (e.g. at-risk or essential worker) for Pfizer/Moderna, so it is a significant majority of inoculations. Yet, it has a disproportinately lower rate of adverse reactions, or at least an equal rate per capita.
In Australia, the official statistic is 1,066 deaths from COVID-19. It's established those are just deaths of people with COVID-19, not due to it as a single cause. If these figures are all correct, the vaccines have contributed to the deaths of roughly half as many people as the virus itself in Australia.
According to DAEN, approximately 10 people die each day with a cause of death related to the vaccines. That's more than twice as much as the COVID-19 virus, at roughly 4 people each day. This clearly indicates that the vaccines overall are causing more harm than good, even if they were 100% effective at preventing COVID-19 related death (and they're not).
I tried sharing this information with a good friend and ex-colleague of mine in the medical technology industry - specifically employed in regulatory affairs. She has accepted the narrative that the vaccines are our only hope to reduce the harm caused by COVID-19. Unfortunately she's also accepted the "ivermectin is horse medicine" crap because "the FDA said so". Anyway, she's a person trusted by many because she's actually quite intelligent and generally insightful, and doesn't hesitate to share her information. If I can dissuade her from vaccine advocation, it should do some good. She's also generally been a reliable person to parse my information through, to see the best arguments from those who accept the narrative.
Anyway, I tried to explain how dangerous these vaccines really seem to be. Her final comment was basically that the deaths don't count because people die every day, and they're just noticing for those who took the experimental gene therapy because they're following up on the patient's state more than for other vaccines. So I ask all of you who are critical thinkers: How should a person reply to that sort of objection? It’s a bad argument against the statistics, but it’s still a difficult one to counter.

[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.
That's out of 190,000,000 vaccinated people for a grand percentage of .00002% hospitalized and .000004% dead.

r206 Good deal. Not the data, but your providing it, of course. That said...
Riddle me this, Batman. How and why are we supposed to trust that the efficacy of the vaccines when during the clinical trials, trial participants were not directly exposed to the virus. They merely walked about and went on with daily life as normal. Keep in mind that last year, we were on lockdown. People were not moving about at the same rate and volume as they are today. So, the exposure, even though they specifically chose areas of "high transmission" to conduct these trials, was significantly less. That skews the results.
The PCR test has already been proven not to be an adequate tool for detecting active infection and infectiousness as they return positive results long after the virus has left its host. Rapid testing should've been used to detect the presence of the actual virus during the trials. They weren't. They used PCR. So, the test results were skewed and subsequently further skews the efficacy estimates (and that's exactly what they are; they compare rates of infection between the placebo and vaccine groups and get an estimate of efficacy from the difference of those two numbers).
Finally, they unblinded the placebo group as soon as the vaccines were launched in December. So, the placebo group had been compromised before the Phase III trial cut off date of March 13, 2021. That also greatly skewed their efficacy results. All of this is going on roughly 6 months of data with concerning limitations. They don't know for sure if the vaccines actually work. They don't know if they are causing worse illness in those who receive breakthrough infections. And they are still conducting Phase III clinical trials until July 30, 2023 after which it will be 24 months before they publicize their data (Pfizer).
The hesitation after taking all of this into consideration is not conspiracy. It's scientifically cautious and prudent.

Best evidence that the vaccines don't kill everyone who takes them: over 5.5 BILLION doses have been administered across the planet. 41% of the people on the globe have received at least one dose. (The doses administered includes those vaccines that require two doses). So well over 3 billion people across the world have been vaccinated. What's that you say? You didn't read that 41% of the people on the planet have died in the past 9 months? That can't possibly be true because we have people who keep repeating over and over again in the threads above that this is the most dangerous vaccine ever and is a sure-fire killer. Kind of difficult to hide the deaths of 3 billion people, but I'm sure that the conspiracy theory minded will have a way of handling that little problem.

My best friend has COPD, worked as a respiratory therapist most of his career and hates most of modern medicine. He never goes to the doctor or gets a flu shot, but he got this vaccine because he didn't want to end up like some of his patients when he was working. He knows.
I have a few autoimmune disorders and CVID. I got COVID twice, fortunately not badly (type O blood?), but still debilitating and frightening. I got the vaccine as soon as I could. I've had 3 doses now because I've had vaccine failure in the past. There's enough known about the vaccine and about COVID to know that I would prefer to be vaccinated.
The russomagats are engaging in a never-ending tantrum about vague rights at the expense of others. The russomagats are taking advantage of the U.S.'s deplorably low education levels and winner-take-all national character.
Other countries don't need mandates because their populations are more trusting of medical and government authorities, and the citizens aren't so damaged as to believe that the vaccine is a conspiracy.

This is a laughably false equivalency and you should be embarrassed that you wrote it. Aspirin has been out far longer. Measure the amount of deaths from aspirin since its release to the approximate time frame that the vaccine has been out for a more accurate comparison of that rate. Also, provide actual death data to support your claim of the annual death numbers per capita where aspirin was listed as the direct cause.
Don't play these flawed math games with me. Come correct with (properly interpreted) data, numbers, and facts or go sit your ass down somewhere and be quiet.

Oh boy, here we go with the false equivalency to things like HIV, or obesity 🙄 The spread of most other diseases (like HIV) are much easier to prevent. You don't get HIV from just breathing the same air. I worked with copious amounts of blood and never caught the many diseases out there because that's how hard it is to catch. You'd have to have open cuts, have unprotected sex, etc. Far from a virus where air droplets are the culprit.
I'm not even exactly for mandates, but enough with the bs that vaccines are more dangerous than covid. You're welcome to take personal risks, but not to spread misinformation. I'd sympathize about being nervous about a newer vaccine if they showed they gave a flying fuck at all. Instead, a majority are fighting everything: masks, testing, limiting outtings, clogging up hospitals, being hyperbolic about the vaccine risks, etc.

Their talking points are laughable. Their “evidence” is so easily debunked, but you can tell it’s lies by how it goes to great lengths to appear alarming yet reasonable. When an ounce of logic is applied it crumbles to the ground.
If 100% of a country is vaccinated then 100% of the deaths/hospitalizations will be of the vaccinated. We don’t need to look at the UK, Australia or any other country. Here in the good ol USA, the vaccinated account for less than 5% (way less I’m being generous) of the COVID-19 related hospitalizations and deaths. That’s ALL the data you need.

Though I'm not completely on board with mandates, I do have a proposal, and it's something many societies, throughout cultures, have done to control illnesses. Legal consequences for their actions, along with ostracizing individuals that are high risk.
That should satisfy the people against the vaccine and help protect those around them. Test positive or knowingly hang around those that are positive, but still travel, go to work, etc.? Those that you spread it to can have you charged and/ or sued if they're harmed by your actions. There you go person comparing it to HIV -- have it your way. Become liable for causing someone to be ill or killing them.
Or like with typhoid, you can be banned from working certain jobs, where your risk of exposing others is too high. Or we go with practices before we had modern medicine. We boot you all to somewhere away from the rest of us, like they did with leprosy, the plague, etc. You can all live in a communal environment with each other, until you want to be civilized, or are tested for having antibodies strong enough to rebuff a covid infection, similar to the vaccine.

R250 it's even better than that. 98-99% of hospitalizations are unvaccinated. Of those 1-2% hospitalized "breakthroughs", it's almost a 0% death rate. The ignorance of someone claiming the insanely low death rate from vaccine side effects should matter, but then dismisses the millions of deaths of the unvaccinated, is an astounding level of hypocrisy.
"Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine."
But you know, according to the person adamantly against the vaccine, there's "no proof" the vaccine even works 🙄 ...nevermind the millions of cases now proving otherwise.

If you block R240 and look at your Ignored list, you will see that this poster has contributed over 30 anti-vax posts to this thread, and only this thread, along with a bunch of posts insulting other posters and calling them Boris and/or Ling-Ling.
I'm R238, whom R240 has accused of being a Boris because I used the word 'magat.' These vile drunken whores from the failed state Russia/USSR/whatever are the true magats.

When you see somebody making obviously magat-type statements, like anti-vax stuff, or Biden is bad stuff, FF then block them. Deny them an audience.

Magats are another reason to be concerned about bump bitching. They bump threads in order to get enough karma to create OPs and to post on the site. Now they're bumping newer threads, but you can still sniff them out. Here's how:
Your thread will have boring stupid threads that will creep back into the main feed periodically, adding a few posts, then disappearing again. For instance, the thread "Flirting with a straight man." It keeps coming back even thought it's an obvious EST and boring to boot.
Another clue is that the new (bump) comments are usually throwaway comments adding nothing to the discussion. FF and block those bump bitches so magats can't fuck with Datalounge.
Other bump bitch clues are that they post new comments to a thread where the OP is red-tagged, or many of the links are dead. Nobody cares about those threads. Anybody posting in those is definitely a bump bitch magat. FF and block those trolls.

We have to have a government and there are two parties and will only be two parties for the foreseeable. If you hate both sides, way to go tough guy. Don't vote. No one GAF.

R254 was typing all, 'I'm so new here and innocent and don't have any idea what's going on and why are you being so mean to each other?' Meanwhile if you check her troll-dar, you see about 30 (why is it always 30? have they figured something out?) posts by R254 in this thread, mostly anti-vax and conservative shit.

Bitch you're posting anti-vaxx disinformation so you're on *somebody's* payroll. Russia, Federalist Society, doesn't really matter at this point. Muriel needs to clean this shithole up.

A new study from University of California found that teenage boys are more at risk from vaccines than covid; 6 times more likely to suffer from heart problems from the vaccine than be hospitalized from Covid...

Idiot, it's been posted many times already that issues with myocarditis in young male vaccine takers are transient and do not result in any permanent damage. But go ahead and keep posting it, because it sounds very scary. What seems to be lost in this discussion is that taking the vaccine is not to prevent deaths in young people, which is always going to be a small percentage, but to keep them from infecting middle aged and older people, for whom the virus is much more deadly, and to keep the hospitals from being overwhelmed with cases. We have required rubella vaccinations NOT because they prevent rubella in young people as a measure, but because they keep young people from transmitting the disease to women of child-bearing age who will have a very high likelihood of miscarrying or having children with birth defects if exposed. This should be regarded as a similar thing. Maybe the messaging is wrong if what people are hearing only that they need to take the vaccine to protect themselves. They need to take it to protect others who are more vulnerable. And don't respond with the bullshit that vaccinated people can transmit the virus to others. The statistics show that people who are fully vaccinated are infected with COVID at much lower rates than the unvaccinated.

R285, please give me the number of young males who have been infected with covid but not hospitalized who have myocarditis from their infection. Oh, that's right, you can't because the only reason they are finding any myocarditis in the vaccinated young males is because they are scrutinizing them so closely.
Did you know that the incidence of myocarditis in vaccinated young males is actually lower than the percentage found in young males in general? Bet you didn't. If they tested a random group of 1000 young males, more of them would have myocarditis than a group specifically made up of 1000 vaccinated young males. Your risk of myocarditis from getting covid is 6-10x higher than from the vaccine.

1990 Fauci showing his "expertise" on AIDS = "I cannot tell you why but I do know we will have a cure soon".......2021 Fauci showing his "expertise" on Covid = "I cannot tell you why but I do know we will have a cure soon"...............Are we sure this guy knows anything?....And YES I am a Democrat. And tired of his endless attention whore behavior. If Fauci only got interviewed on NEW material we wouldn't have seen him since the summer of 2020. Name recognition does not make you an "expert"....

Fauci uttering meaningless doublespeak nonsense even years ago ---only then it was AIDS....."The dimensions keep changing. There are spectacular successes and challenges that still remain.".......Even years ago he was pushing life long medication dosages (LINK)......Where are Faucis "successes"?. He didn't cure AIDS (after 30 years!!)...He keeps repeating the same Jibber Jabber on Covid. What problem has Fauci fixed?...I see videos of him going back years, pushing medications for Big Pharma...

r281 Do explain how the hell calling out a Twitter account (that was linked in another DL thread discussing this very issue) that was fetishizing gay shame and erasure as toxic is...homophobic.
That's like saying that calling out a Twitter account for fetishizing racism (e.g. race play) and the Transatlantic slave trade as toxic is, in itself, racist.
Make it make sense.

It's not being discussed because anyone over the age of five with a FUNCTIONING BRAIN knows that being vaccinated doesn't prevent one from getting Covid.

It doesn't PREVENT infection, but it reduces the likelihood considerably. A person who has been vaccinated is MUCH MUCH MUCH less likely to be infected than someone who is unvaccinated.

Go to the 98 second mark of this video. The girl crunches the numbers right in front of you. She shows the odds of getting a COVID infection after vaccination is very small.
