Until there is a definitive answer on the vaccine proventing long covid issues covid isn't the flu.

This forum is like going to a doctor's office where it's just people searching WebMD and hoping for the best

Exactly what science does to people tbh. Scientists can't even decide whether tomatoes are good or bad. Just look at benzodiazepines, or proton pump inhibitors, the milions of doses, years of prescriptions, dozens of studies and how long it still took for the knowledge of true harm and danger to get to the public. Most people treat science like religion now, holding similar sense of superiority out of knowing the ultimate truth, and just as misguided.

I'm not even about vaccines here, just answering the general sentiment. I actually talked my father into vaccination, because I thought that covid is a direct threat to him. I'd also strongly consider if it was still as annoying as the initial variants. I do think though, that with such complicated subject as human body, a new ish technique, the real time change of the illness, the politics and billions of dollars at stake, all those studies are just shots in the dark.

Garth Merenghi quotes
Most of you will probably know me already from my extensive canon of chillers including "Afterbirth" in which a mutated placenta attacks Bristol.

Everyone has a special talent. Mine is being able to write, produce direct, act, paint... Other people are good plumbers, that's their gift.

There are rebels and there are innovators. I'm a rebel. I play a rebel brain expert who's in rebelliance against conventional logic, who's in rebelliance against the world order. It's about rebelliance. And if that's not being an innovator, I don't know what is.

In times of conflict, when you're up against an agressor, be he human, be he inhuman, whoe'er he be, often he is both.

Greetings traveller. Who am I? Perhaps you have met me twixt sleep and and wake - in the penumbra of uncertainity you call unconsiousness... you know, my books are essentialy about "what ifs". In "Black Fang" I asked - what if a rat could drive a bus? And what if it and its rat brethren took over and ate Parliment?

A lot of people say "Garth Merenghi? Doesn't he write that horror crap?" Well, you're an idiot, because my books always say something, even if it's simple like "Don't geneticaly engineer crabs to be as big as man". There's always a message or a theme.
