Opinion: Why I got vaccinated It’s the most responsible approach to the health of your neighbors and fellow community members. published in the Juneau Empire, Thursday, March 4, 2021 12:15pm A year ago, the Empire graciously printed my opinion piece “Why I’m Wearing a Mask.” I’ll tell you, one reason I got the COVID vaccines is because wearing a mask is getting old, and I want to do my part in helping us get past necessary mask mandates. Eventually, we will be safe to go maskless, but not yet. It would be beyond horrible to inadvertently be an asymptomatic carrier who infected a more vulnerable neighbor, patient or family member, who then suffered from getting sick, becoming a “long-hauler” or worse. Some say getting a vaccine is a personal choice — of course it is. However if you opt out of the vaccine then you’re responsible to not be a potential disease vector, which means staying home (not feasible if you can’t work from home) or taking all the usual precautions when in public. Many cultures, for many centuries, have...

The only portals of entry are the nostrils and mouth/throat. In a global epidemic of this nature, it’s almost impossible to avoid coming into contact with H1N1 in spite of all precautions.  Contact with H1N1 is not so much of a problem as is proliferation of the virus.

http://www.newyorker.com/talk/comment/2009/10/12/091012taco_talk_specter I agree with a good amount of this article EXCEPT the implication at the end that one should receive the vaccine.  My husband had the swine flu 2 weeks ago.  It was uncomfortable for a few days, but not a big deal.  The more relevant concern about the vaccine, and flu shots in general, is that they do NOT change the mortality nor mordibity based on analysis of many decades of annual influenza episodes.  See an earlier post about vaccines not preventing flu.  In other words, since flu shots became readily available, the only entities to reliably benefit are the vaccine manufacturers. Vaccines have not changed the course of seasonal flus.  Additionally, I have personally experienced, as well as witnessed in numerous patients, becoming quite ill with the flu directly after receiving a flu shot.  I only got one, many years ago.  That was my last!  The only time I will recommend a flu shot is to an elderely, immuno-compromised person especially if they need to be hospitalized or institutionalized.  In just about any other situation, in my opinion,...
