Re: Another Anti Vaxer Dead.

I don't know much about this bloke. If by "anti vaxer" he was trying to persuade others not to have the vaccine then I don't have not so much sympathy for him. If he simply thought the vaccine was no use to him and didn't bother it is sad he found out the hard way. I really feel sorry for all those who suffered and died in the first wave of the virus before the better treatment and vaccines. In another thread the NHS is coming in for some harsh criticism but I think they are dong a good job.

I agree. If it turns out that your own fears of currently unknown harmful side-effects ends up being true and that some people become ill or worse, then no doubt you too won't be going around saying "I told you so".

As you said in a previous post, there is a family in grieving. AFAIK the fella was a simply a sceptic and made a personal choice which seems to have been the wrong one (although, in truth, we'll never know if the vaccine would have saved him anyway since it's not an absolute given).

I think that it's the keeping us alive bit that most of us are more worried about to be fair, OGF.

I can't argue with that Zaphod, but if somebody doesn't agree with us it's not right to dismiss their death as being their own fault. I'm sure he thought that the risk of having the vaccine was greater than the risk of dying of Covid. He could be right, and we will find out in years to come when people start filling the hospitals with mystery illnesses. I agree that the vaccines appear to be reducing deaths and infections, but at what cost?

A sad story Lion Queen but I'm sure she thought it was the right thing to do at the time. You only hear about the ones that end badly.
