We are just filled with bugs of all kinds, and some of the bugs do turn out to be fatal.

I just received another notice from the management of the building I live in, announcing yet another case of COVID here in the building. That makes case #5. Actually probably not a bad record for a building with 58 units, all senior citizens.

The chances are that everyone here had to have a smallpox vaccination and other vaccines just to get into first grade. This is a new disease, and a new vaccine was needed.

We're very lucky that the people who know how to develop vaccines were able to come up with one. It's the only way to stop the serious illness and (often) death that this virus brings.

Agate, wonder if the people lost in your bldg had pre existing health issues? This seems to be a big issue and with many seniors, and were they up on the Vit D, and were they taking Vit C...that's what I go to first. This experimental drug isn't working as I see it going into 3 yrs of a continual load of viruses hitting the people every month or so, ummmm.

I'm not sure what experimental drug you mean, but only one person in my building was lost to COVID. The other people who had it recovered. The woman who died was 89 and did have other health issues.

Even though a person in good health who has stocked up on vitamins as needed can probably survive COVID, a person doesn't want to take that chance.

I'll keep beating this drum because vaccinations have been proven to be effective for over 100 years now, and we're lucky to have the COVID vaccines. The only way to cut down on the vast numbers of cases still occurring worldwide is to reach that herd immunity goal.

The vaccine is not 100% effective, and its effectiveness wanes with time. This is from the Centers for Disease Control, which is a US government's highly respected organization:

Vaccine Breakthrough Infections: The Possibility of Getting COVID-19 after Getting Vaccinated

Nothing is perfect. You can wait around until a more nearly perfect vaccine comes along if you want, or until these vaccines that we have seem less experimental to you, but I'm in favor of going with whatever is available because this is a worldwide problem and it's very apt to kill many more people than it already has unless we do whatever we can to stop it.

The COVID-19 vaccines are not experimental drugs except that they haven't been around as long as other vaccines we're familiar with. In a way anything aimed at COVID-19 is going to be "experimental"--if you want to call it that--just because this is a new virus, and nobody on earth knew anything about it until it happened into our midst. Viruses are known to do that.
