Something something Pfizer and BioNTech, might be available by the end of the year.

And you will trust that?
Just asking. Right now the virus got some nasty modifications, will you trust this ''vaccine'' with your own life?

I don't trust them, not a single bit.
Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow.

Haven't really looked into it beyond 90% efficiency and available by the end of the year. I live in a small country so it will probably have been tested on millions and millions of American and EU citizens before it eventually makes its way to me so can't say I'm worried, no.

Didn't know that but good to hear and I imagine in the end we will have yearly shots as it changes, much like the regular flu.

I would risk it if it ends up over 90% effective as they are claiming.

I would rather place my trust in the vaccine than the lottery of Covid.

Last I read, it may well take up to five years to mutate to another strain if it behaves anything like the influenza virus. But that's (currently) guesswork on their part.

There's also the possibility, that when COVID-19 finally does mutate, it will do so into something much less virulent. Right now, we can but hope.

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

I'm usually the last person to receive the news, just happened to be glancing at a chart and suddenly a big green dildo appeared. Thank god I'm all done investing for a while now (no monies left (as in cash, I haven't lost it all, yet)). The market is perhaps the stupidest game rich people have invented to entertain themselves and exploit the rest of us. I guess marginal things like child rape islands is a fair bit worse, but I'm afraid I've veered far enough from the topic at hand as is.

the lottery of Covid.



I will stick with the "lottery" until vaccine becomes mandatory. I'll probably never be without a mask and proper social distancing but, so be it.

I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?

12 minutes into this video and a talking head says they're using Tiktok to connect w/ people about these vaccines.
Can't tell if this is genius or another example of humanity's ongoing retardation.

Well you are in the middle of no where which works for you in this pandemic and I am in an area with little or no infection rate at all but still social distance and wear masks indoors.

It's hitting the suburbs outside of Toronto ATM where there are a lot of different cultures residing.


As of 2 days ago, there is not one COVID patient in ICU in the downtown city itself of Toronto.
Waiting to see if the second wave is less lethal or that we are just a month behind Europe.


We shall see where it stands here at the time of it being dispensed.
