Narcissists find their way in and trick you into accepting them, letting your guard down and weakening your defenses. You don’t realize it until its too late and they have done significant damage. It would be nice if there was a way to know who these people are before they come into your life. A wanted poster that gives you the heads up to keep your guard up and teaches you how to defend against their charm and ego. You could learn the lesson “naturally”, the hard way, or a wanted poster tells you beforehand to strengthen you for the fight and deny them power over your life.

The virus is like a narcissist, it has a sort of charm. Most viruses do this, but this one is particularly good at getting in and telling the immune system to shut down and ignore it. Like that narcissist, your body is tricked into letting it in and doesn’t build a defense until its too late. It turns off parts of your immune response which is why trying to fight it naturally fails for so many people. Like the wanted poster, the vaccine tells the immune system what the virus looks like and prepares the body to defend before the virus can tell the immune system to shut down. This is the key part of the vaccine. Your body can learn to defend against it without the vaccine, many are able to, but there is the serious chance it learns too late. That is the purpose of the vaccine, to show the body a sort of picture of the virus. Before it even gets in your body, the immune system has and knows how to build antibodies to destroy it.

The vaccine is not 100% and no one ever said it was. In fact they said it helps prevent hospitalization and death and at that its around 96%. You are unlikely to get sick, but if you do, you are likely to fight it off. Right now most people dying are unvaccinated, likely 99%+. Yes some small percentage are vaccinated. It is not 100% effective.
The vaccine does not alter your DNA. All it is, is something that looks like the virus but isn’t actually the virus. That’s all. It is a wanted poster telling your body what to look out for. Whatever facebook memes you have been looking at to scare you away from the vaccine are BS. Find a doctor, you have one on your friends list, talk to them.

The vaccine does have side effects. When the body finds a virus it turns the heat up. This is a fever. It isn’t the virus that creates the fever, its your immune system. Its intentional and its good. Its actually not good to prevent all fevers, just the ones that get too high. So when you get your second dose, the immune system already knows about the virus from having been given the first dose, the wanted poster. It turns up the heat thinking its being attacked by the virus. It isn’t, its just the vaccine, but that’s actually good. It means the body sees what it thinks is the virus which means its likely to see the real virus. You feel bad because your immune system is responding. Its a whole lot better to feel bad for a day than to end up with “long covid” or dead. I want you to feel that second dose.

Kids get it, kids die. My sons 9 year old friend just got over a case of covid that he picked up on his first vacation trip out of the house in over a year. Healthy people get it and healthy people are dying. Its not many but Delta is having more of an impact on young people now and if we allow this virus to keep mutating it will eventually find a strain that kills them as easily too.

We have a chance to stop it. Wear a mask, because that helps. Yes the virus itself is smaller than the holes in cloth masks. But the virus isn’t floating around on its own. Its in water droplets that are larger than those holes. So the mask can stop the virus from getting in and its especially good at it when everyone is wearing one. Again, it isn’t 100%. Even if one particle gets in, the body has other defenses before the immune system to prevent infection. What you want to do is try to prevent tons of virus from getting in. Yes yes “freedom”. Freedom to do the right thing and work together to defeat this virus or screw it, we’ll have our ERs overflowing forever and pay the price.
We have healthcare workers that have been in covid soup for over a year. When they get infected its usually a larger dose and a larger dose has a better time taking hold than a small one. So they are getting hit hard.

Right now on your friends list there is someone that has had the virus and now suffers some long term consequence. It could be something like Tinnitus, ringing in the ears. It could be when they eat the food smells like crap, literally. It could be they now have a heart problem that could shorten their lives. The vaccine works, largely, and it along with mask wearing can stop this virus. But what wont stop the virus is the day the cases drop low we all give up and say its over. Its not over until the virus is gone. If we keep giving up too soon the virus is more than happy to come right back with a vengeance. It will burn through us until millions die. 1.5% die. Thats millions of Americans dead. Of course it helps when we slow it down and give healthcare workers the time and resources to fight it. That reduces death rates. We’ve defeated past viruses and this one should not be allowed to become endemic, permanent.

We are currently in the middle of another surge. Florida is actually worse than any other state. It is no longer giving daily numbers because Desantis decided it was all over right around Memorial Day. Guess when the surge started. Last week it was 8000 cases a day. Its now over 12000 per day. Florida is at least 4 times any other state. Drill down in to FL numbers and look at the daily new cases chart.

Vaccines will not stop this surge. At least not those taken today. Masks and social distancing will because they’ve done it every time you see the peak fall. I’m all for staying open but to do that means as many people as possible wearing masks. Vaccines, if enough get it in time, may stop the surge that starts when school starts.
