You know when you post about something for sale and you list the price, how to contact you, when it will be available & how it will be shipped or collected? Then the first 10 questions are "How much?" & "Can I email you?" - that's what arguing with anti-vaxx peeps is like.
"But it doesn't confer complete immunity!"
- We never said it would - it just helps enormously at scale
"Some people still go to hospital!"
- Yes, like we said they would, but far fewer of them die
"You can get side effects!"
- Yes, exactly like we said, but they are rare!
"But over 5,000 people have died from it"
- No, they haven't. And even if they had that's a drop in the ocean of hundreds of millions. You're *thousands* of time more likely to die in a car accident tomorrow.
"But it changes your DNA!"
- No it doesn't. You do not understand scien
"Here is a video of a women spontaneously sprouting testicles and then dying of a meteor strike after getting the jab!"
- You need to find better Facebook friends
"The COVID deaths are falling anyway!"
"It's a personal choice - it doesn't affect you if I refuse it"

- Lord Zeus, I just cannot...
