There is no biologic function that combines mRNA and DNA. I have included a basic overview below, in layman's terms.

I understand fear. I think there is need for concern and research in taking the vaccine.

I officially do not remember any offer of 100 bucks. ;)

The following day was a bit better, but my back was killing me, the body aches were a bit better, I was still fairly worn out and the headache faded. By day three I was fine, with a slight arm ache. It is said the second dose is supposed to be worse, that will suck, but worth it.

I'm optimistic about the side effects because I'm old and have most of those symptoms every day, anyway, plus a lack of appetite will do me good. That gets me down to just a headache.

The vaccine is an mRNA vaccine, meaning it teaches your body to give an immune response when coming in contact with a certain protein. The coronavirus vaccine does in no way affect your actual DNA; people get spooked when they hear anything related to DNA or RNA, but the vaccination does not rewrite anything in your body, it only trains it how to act when presented with certain pathogens.

It was a joke.
I used the wrong font.

I wish people would quit explaining this. I didn't exactly get an exemplary set of DNA at the start, and you're dashing my hopes that a change might be for the better.

Depends on your definition of exemplary. You've made it this far. Don't worry, be happy.

pssst...i got a guy with the gamma rays that might have what you are looking for...just don't make him mad.

medic5888 01-08-2021 04:35 AM

Hey guys Paramedic here. I took the vaccine as I urge all of you guys to do as well. The sample size done in these trials represents an appropriate population size to prove the vaccine safe. It does not cause infertility...23 women became pregnant after they received the vaccine during the trials and are having completely normal pregnancies'. I have not grown a 3rd arm or anything. The only side effect I had was a sore arm ( not my throwing arm on purpose ) just like the flu shot. The cases of anaphylaxis are not that common. If you are having that severe of an allergic reaction its due to something in the vaccine you have already been exposed to and are allergic too. I could go into it but I wont bore you. It takes more than 1 exposure to an allergen to cause that severe of a reaction. Guys we have a chance to stop this virus and get back to normal. Again I encourage for everyone to get the vaccine. Do not listen to the fake stories on facebook about it. Lets do this to save lives. Lets do this so we can go back to watching events in person!

I classify mine as "functional", for which I am, of course, grateful.

I didn't get the ones that allow someone to pick up a disc for the first time, and 3 weeks later throw it 400'.

Have they worked out the correct dosage on those gamma rays, yet?

Meanwhile, and back on topic, a bit of recent political news obscured the news of some of the worst days yet in the Covid saga, both in my state and the nation as a whole.

To say nothing of a 100,000+ person superspreader event. With thousands of, out of state terrorists, all flying back to their covidiot minded bubbles, to wreak havoc on their home healthcare systems.

The second dose
 
1 Attachment(s)
David's right, distraction isn't helpful. As of today, per Johns Hopkins, 366,644 of our fellow US citizens have died of COVID. Play it where it lies.

On a hopeful note, the lovely wife received her second dose of the Pfizer vaccine today. I'm grateful that she is heading towards 95%+ efficacy as she serves in a hospital with over 200 COVID patients.

As for side effects, she's pretty sure that no headache she might get from the vaccine can compare with what she and her colleagues have been through working the last month.

Very true.

As it was happening, I was thinking of the members of Congress, staff, and media who have been trying to social distance, crammed into secure places for hours out of necessity.

Wasn't there a big study done recently that said protests didn't spread Covid?

Link? ;)

Otherwise, details matter. Masked is better than not. Outdoors is better than indoors. Distanced is better than not. Washing/sanitizing your hands from time to time doesn't hurt.

From an infection control standpoint, surrounding the Capitol is safer than going inside. :rolleyes:

I 100% agree it was a super spreader event, just like all of the other events earlier in the year where 1000s of out of state people congregated.

1000s of out of state terrorists.. Not saying I agree or disagree, but I'm just wondering if you would label 1000s of out of state people coming into a town and burning businesses down terrorists?

I did not hear about business being burned on Wednesday.

Do not blame DiscFifty for ru4por's politics. And remember, this is supposed to be a great discussion, based on science. Guess someone forgot his own advice.

The only pseudo political word in my post was terrorist. I did not see it as much political, as a tame pragmatic term for the participants. I am sure this "catch" has you sporting some solid wood. Back to trolling the watercooler for you now.

My apologies to this thread. But, my comment of the recent "political disagreement", having scientific potential to become a superspreader event, especially in light of the emergence of the newer, more contagious strain of COVID, stands up in the vein of this thread.

Says the guy living his/her life based off one...

Anyways, i see 4k americans lost today from Covid. Its sad that people still disregard these numbers.

I personally am not scared of Covid but a large portion of the population should be very concerned.
The mis-information is the biggest threat. The population most affected by Covid are the ones that are the most susceptible to mis-information.

My father, who is basically a Karen, is stuck in his own world and believes whatever the ppl in his bubble say.
He will not get the vaccine no matter what factual information is presented to him.

I just hope his crazy beliefs and lack of rationale doesnt hurt the family members i actually care about.

I just cant push myself that far to believe this. I take Covid very seriously and am scared for my family and friends.

With how the current administration handled this terribly and the 98% survival rate, i can understand the other side.
I dont agree with the non-believers or people that dont take it seriously.

I just think the lack of knowledgeable coherent clear information when this started ,forced people to search for answers. To form their own opinions because the "leader" kept disagreeing with the scientists and experts.

You see these gullible non-educated people on the news all the time. I truly believe they dont actually have the capacity to reasonably create an informed factual opinion.

One's personal beliefs can lead to selective judgement where it becomes a strong motivator for self appeasement.

Because it triggers an emotional response which is good for business. How boring would it be to see in interview after interview.. "Oh sure, everyone I know wears a mask. It's obviously the right thing to do." ;)

The label of "terrorists" is being used so often it will lose it's meaning.

I watched an example of this during the events Wed in DC on one of the networks. The reporter live on the scene kept correcting himself from one description of what was happening to another description and apologizing for it each time. What he corrected and how made it much more sensational.

I found that very telling. I wondered who he was apologizing to.

That was the media making the narrative.

One of the problems is that the “scientists and experts” that were promoted by the media were Fauci and Gates, literally supervillains. We live in a comic book that has supervillains fighting each other and no hero in sight.

How do you know they haven't recovered from Covid, or have been vaccinated, and have immunity. (I know you are more isolated on your little island, but over here in the US, I estimate that 100 million of us have already had this virus, or have been vaccinated. There's a fair chance that if I see someone without a mask, they don't really need one, especially if they are distancing.)

Balderdash. Fauci and Gates were merely spokesmen for Science, for the overwhelming consensus of virologists, epidemiologists, and other scientists in long-revered agencies, as well as research institutions, every state, and every other advanced nation in the world. In short, the people who actually know what they're talking about.

Nations that valued their expertise, have suffered far less than those that ignored it.

Halcón 01-10-2021 10:02 AM

Oh, David. You capitalized the word science. That's really disturbing.

You just engaged in doublespeak. Either they are an “expert” or a “spokesman”. Not both. In fact they are NOT experts but spokesmen as you said first. Fauci is personally responsible for making the AIDS epidemic flare in many of the same ways Trump is responsible for COVID. Both men are straight up evil.
