Veet Mayo, Main Arm
I noted with interest for reference to two businesses in Mullum precluding ‘vax’ recipients from entering their shops because of their fears of ‘shedding’.
So I browsed or researched or grazed the food for thought on the internet and lo and behold you were dead right.
I suppose it’s about using the right terminology.
I found the answer on a podcast Ask the Nurses, which is an amazingly informative show that helps the frontline nurses to communicate their experience worldwide.
They all have very much in common: hard dangerous work, low pay, long hours, and firsthand experience of hell on earth. As Maxwell Smart said ‘very interesting’.
I lucked in as the guest was one of the most eminent of eminents, Dr Sherri Tenpenny.
Dr Tenpenny is probably one of the most informed, highly qualified on COVID-19 issues in the world. She said shedding is the wrong terminology and should not be used forthwith, for exactly the same reason as you presented, David, in your comments.
And she went to inform a humble drum-maker, plumber, lover of life and freedom in terms I could totally understand.
And guess what? She shocked me to my pubic arch. I will recommend that every person on this beautiful blue planet (that is being made into a huge quarry) should see this revelation and share it with everybody they know.
Sure, it will take courage but having the information will allow you to make an informed choice as to whether to do or not to do, as Mr Shakespeare said.
Oh incidentally, she helped me understand what is a vaccine and what is not a vaccine.
I am vaxxed against tetanus so I will have an immunity.
[Ed Note: according to health experts, whilst the tetanus vaccine is almost 100 per cent effective other commonly administered vaccines are less effective, eg diphtheria 97 per cent. Other vaccines like pertussis have an even lower efficacy, especially in the years after they are administered. According to the Australian government the COVID vaccine does provide protection against COVID see: https://www.health.gov.au/
COVID-19 is an injection, not a vaccine, because the shot will not stop you from getting the virus or carrying the virus. To qualify as a vaccine you would have an immunity to COVID-19 virus. Get it?
Once again terminology is very important.
To finish on a lighter note.
One mouse to another: ‘Are you going to get the jab?’ Other mouse replies: ‘You’ve got to be joking, they haven’t finished testing on humans yet.’
