    COVID-19 vaccine

    Hammer--As I said before doctors and yes nurses are people and some people have bought into all kinds of weird theories that in no way resemble the truth. Just how can vaccines alter your DNA--it's impossible. All any vaccine does is teach your immune system to recognize a threat and attack it and slowly disappear. All vaccines do not remain in the body. That's why you have to get boosters occasionally or as in the case of the the flu shot yearly. You ask the families of the 260,000 Americans who have died from Covid if they wish their was a vaccine to save their loved ones and I'll bet you'd get a resounding YES. I was vaccinated for smallpox when I was in grade school. A few years later I was vaccinated for Polio. I have never had any effect from either vaccine in the around the 70 years since. I had measles, mumps, chicken pox and whooping cough when I was in grade 1 and I'm thankful for vaccines that saved my son from getting all of them. He's 51 now and has never had any problems from any of those vaccines. I don't foresee any harm to any of us from the Covid vaccine in a year from now or ever. I'm thankful that scientists have given us a way to combat this deadly disease These people have no idea of how the vaccines work and don't want to hear the truth. They hear DNA and right away they jump on the bandwagon manufacturing bogus theories. They do harm by convincing others of their made up lies. In truth it's the DNA of the virus that's altered not the DNA of people

    COVID-19 vaccine

    Not all doctors or nurses are reputable & it pays to check those you recommend. Dr Tenpenny is an osteopath, not a viroligist . Dr Tenpenny for example is an antivaccer claiming it causes autism, yet no cases can be directed to the vaccine. She is also one of 12 that are in dispute with the BBC claiming falsehoods https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-56536390 From wiki.. Tenpenny had scheduled a speaking tour in Australia to occur starting in February 2015, but in January, after objections were raised to her anti-vaccination views, all the venues at which she was scheduled to speak cancelled the talks, and the tour was called off.[4][5] Tenpenny has been criticized by the Stop The Australian Anti-Vaccination Network for "endangering people's health" and "targeting vulnerable parents".[3] Since 2017, Tenpenny and her business partner, Matthew Hunt, have taught a six-week, $623 course titled "Mastering Vaccine Info Boot Camp" designed to "sow seeds of doubt" regarding public health information. During the course, Tenpenny explains her views on the immune system and vaccines, and Hunt instructs participants on how best to use persuasion tactics in conversation to communicate the information.[6] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sherri_Tenpenny

    COVID-19 vaccine

    Dowling, I knew that some people here would try to discredit this doctor, but the 4 nurses that were there, stated what they had experienced with people who had been vaccinated. You might want to try and discredit the doctor, but how can you argue against what these nurses have actually seen with vaccinated people? The doctor explained in detail, how the vaccines work, and how they alter your DNA, and you think that they are safe? You may not suffer from any side effects from the vaccine, but wait a year, then come back and tell me that you're okay. The problem with doctors is that they don't associate blood clots, liver damage, kidney damage and any other organ damage to the vaccines because the damage can occur months later after the vaccine. Let's see the death toll a year from now from the vaccines, maybe then you'll see why I refuse to get vaccinated.

    COVID-19 vaccine

    Really hammer--You have bought into conspiracy theories, antivaxers and a whole lot of nonsense. Some people even Doctors can buy into a stupid theory but that doesn't make them right. She was talking about People vaccinated for chicken pox shedding the virus and passing it on to others--utter nonsense. Unvaccinated people can do that but if you are vaccinated you may have breathed in the virus and you may have it in your nose but not enough to pass it on to anyone because it can't enter the body. The same holds true if you have had chicken pox and recovered. Covid was new and doctors and scientists learned facts about it as time went on. They have recently learned that vaccinated people may test positive with nose swabs but the bacterial load was so small that they couldn't infect anyone. With Covid at first they didn't know and that's why they asked vaccinated people to continue wearing masks but now that they have found that out they are lifting mask restrictions for vaccinated people I ask you to compare what is happening in India right now with what the USA is experiencing. India has only vaccinated a few people and the USA has vaccinated half or more of it's population. What India it experiencing would be world wide without vaccines. My son, DIL and grandsons have had all their regular vaccinations. I have too and never had any reaction to any of them except that it kept me from serious illness. I, My son and DIL have all had our Covid vaccines and as soon as they can so will my grandsons. My common sense tells me that while Covid is deadly the vaccines are safe and effective

    COVID-19 vaccine

    I'm sure that a lot of people here will again, try to discredit this doctor, and my guess is that those who do this, don't want to hear the truth about the vaccines. They are NOT safe. Here is her interview.

    Not to be morbid , but this cemetery is incredibly interesting. It reflects historical & cultural differences. Guided tours can be taken each Sunday. Started in 1867 they are finding little to no space left for new burials. I'd never seen crypts or vaults before so was amazed at the differences to those I'd known. I was there as a student of horticulture & landscape architecture & would gladly return to see more of it. Theres even ghost tours ..but not my idea of a night out. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-05-15/sydney-rookwood-cemetery-running-out-of-burial-space/100095266 In the beginning, funerals to this cemetery would arrive by horse & cart . Then in 1869 a purpose built train station was erected for a funeral train to arrive from longer distances. https://sydneylivingmuseums.com.au/sydneyopen/city/access-denied/mortuary-station
