I'm going to start lying about being vaccinated

I'm already tired of the question and the required followup explanation

It's going to be easier to just lie and say "yes", than accept the judgement and spend 5 minutes discussing my medical history with a skeptical and virtue signaling busybody.


(My Doctor has advised me to NOT get vaccinated because of my prior history with adverse reactions to prior vaccines. Including a severe reaction which left me hospitalized)

6. I agree

You don't owe anyone your life's story, but a simple, "I'd get the shot, but I'm one of the unlucky few who are allergic."

5. It's the people who are able to get one but won't.

I will make sure everyone around me is vaccinated because, unlike you, 99.9% of people who won't get the vaccine are anti-science idiots.

7. It's idle water cooler chat most of the time

...but it can occasionally be awkward, so I don't broach the subject outside of close friends and family.

Even then it can be awkward (I have some conservative friends).

But Covid seems to be the exception.

9. Have you nailed down the specific ingredient which caused the reaction? (hopefully not being rude)..

Personally I wouldn't give my doctor the easy out and would press him on it a bit. There a big differences between the mRNA and viral vector versions.

15. An allergic reaction is, if I understand correctly, an

... over reaction of the immune system. Since a vaccine is intended to trigger an immune response, a vaccine is the ingredient that triggers the allergic reaction.

10. the important part for you is to truly encourage others to get vaccinated

those who are around you so you can be somewhat protected. We are dealing with rapidly mutating lethal virus, so the vaccine status question is very important. I am happy to hear you get asked this question. Just say you wish you could get it. I am pushing my employer to require testing for the unvaccinated (among other restrictions). Employers generally cannot mandate vaccination, especially EUA but they sure can mandate routine covid testing for the unvaccinated.

12. Penicillin? I'm allergic to penicillin too...

... but I've had the 1st dose of Moderna with no reaction other than a slightly sore arm one day later.

The pharmacy didn't even ask me about a penicillin allergy, so I just did a Google-search and found nothing about it.

Here's one site with an interesting tidbit:
Have allergies? Worried about COVID-19 vaccine? Donít be.
https://newsroom.uw.edu/postscript/have-allergies-worried-about-covid-19-vaccine-dont-be
----------
Paauw (pronounced ďpowĒ) suspects that, eventually, the allergic reaction rate to the COVID-19 vaccines will be one per 1 million people. Other medications, including penicillin, have higher rates of causing severe allergic reactions.

ďThe chance of dying if you take penicillin is much higher, and few worry about getting an antibiotic in this country,Ē he said.

13. I've only had one person ask me. But I don't go out much because I'm not eligible yet.

Seems kind of nosy for people to ask others about health issues.

14. Different Times: Polio Vaccines and Sugar Cubes

I was just a kid... but no one seemed to mind chatting about it.

Have you had a flu shot?
Are you old enough to get the pneumonia shot?
Have you had the shingles vaccination?
When did you have your booster for tetanus, etc?

Let's just say 'yes' to all of the questions?? It would just be easier.

(Let me know when they come up with a vaccine for being a smartass... I'll have to go to the front of the line).

17. Nobody lives in a bubble

During a pandemic, there is a collective wellness scenario going on.

I like to be informed regarding the vaccination situation with close proximity coworkers strictly in the interest of self-preservation.

19. If you've been vaccinated, why are you worried about someone who may or may not be?

Iím not eligible to be vaccinated, but I donít go around asking people I donít know if they have been or not. And I AM at risk.

Sorry buddy. I'm not going to hermit myself to make a random anonymous internet stranger happy.

Read the original post if you need to understand why.

And guess what? Every time you drive your car you put others at risk of death.

20. I'm sorry you're having to deal with that

To not be able to get it because of health issues is one thing but having to see and hear everyone else talk about theirs must really be trying at times. I know it canít be easy, that is for sure
