ABC news right now have nurses on there saying people are dying and with their last breaths are saying, "This is a hoax, it can't be real".

How the faq do you deal with something like that!!

I swear the irresponsibility of some people is creating **** I'd never thought I'd see.

Speechless.

This is the real world embodiment of the Black Knight from Month Python and the Holy Grail. The degree of ignorance and denial is astounding.

Not from ABC, but the same story:

A quarter-million people dying, you're bound to get a little bit of everything. Including deniers.

I mean come on, really? Is there video of these people saying that as they die? Sounds like a manufactured news story. No way people lower the bar further than i currently have it.

I would bet it’s happening frequently. Deniers are more likely to get it, and I’m not sure why they would suddenly see the light if they firmly believed the virus is a hoax. Must be a bad flu or pneumonia, and all these doctors and nurses calling it COVID are getting paid to fabricate the stats. These people are batsh*t.

It's the mechanism by which it works. Getting injected with a bunch of spike proteins so your body can build antibodies doesn't seem so scary. Getting injected with mRNA that hijacks your cells and tells them to start building spike proteins is a bit scarier.

I think if someone is already "vaccine skeptical" then the engineered nature of the mRNA vaccine would cause a lot of doubt.

The boners were a complete accident.
They aimed for the heart (hypertension and chest pain) and missed by a mile.

But sure, they're way better.
