Don't think the powers that be warned vaccinated to

stay away from unvaccinated enough. Ya, we knew... but don't think it reached critical mass.

My vaccinated inlaws in their 80s both got it. And they just sent my FIL to hospital with low blood ox and chest tightening.

1. It's obvious that for the most part The Powers That Be all around the world have let us all

down in regard to the covid response and many other policies like health care, global warming,
wars and just being Right-Wing Fascists determined to kill off the rest of us. How's that working
out for ya, guys (and gals)?

I'm sorry you, Laura, or anyone else is going through this.

2. You're right. Most people who were vaccinated don't think about the possibility they could be

spreaders. Although I at home most of the time, I never gave it a thought I could be a carrier.

Of time where there was an information lags.

5. I have and I listened to the science.

I have not gone out unmasked since 03/2020. I know I can get and give the virus while fully vaccinated. I am double masking now.

I have a 95 year old in my family. I do home care. I would never risk her health.

3. I am sorry to hear about your inlaws

Hopefully the vaccine will bring them some level of protection. We have taken two giant steps back because of those who will not act responsibly. Now we are back to those dark days where old age or pre-existings or other reasons to put them in danger. You and your in-laws are in my thoughts.

8. Thanks BOH. You are exactly right. Those of us who are

healthy can survive a bout. It's once again the elderly who may not be in good health who are in danger. And I don't hear anyone warning them .. seriously warning them. Like the doc in Alabama said, it's a miserable way to die. And the worse part..you are alone and your loved ones are alone. They do not deserve that horror.

This part?

I am so sorry for your inlaws. I hope they make a full recovery.


I have tried hard to be friends with you. I shouldn't have bothered. You still attack me. Though I wish your inlaws well, I will never bother to cross paths with you again.

11. Nothing personal. Elderly people who are fully vaccinated HAVE NOT

been duly warned. They must not be around other people without masks on. They really shouldnt be warned not to be around anyone who is not vaccinated including beloved grandkids. Sad but true

12. No good.

Yes it is the same personal grudge that you attacked me on for over a year, all because you misread my post to you.

We are done. I tried. Done.

Best to you and yours.

We are done now.

They relaxed the mask mandate May 13 and it's been a mess since then

Hope your in laws will be okay

17. Yes. There is a contingent I have noticed who have smugly

denigrated any caution about this since the beginning.

They called us doomers when we said the lifting of the mask recommendations was premature and obviously stupid.

They accused us of being "armchair epidemiologists" when we followed the spreads of the new strains.

When we said the pandemic was not over last summer and this past spring, they said we had Stockholm Syndrome and secretly loved the pandemic.

I remember a particularly vicious pile-on at the beginning when I said the projected number of 60,000 deaths that IHME was peddling was absurd. They called me a ghoul and a death monger.

And at each turn they spew this stuff as if more cautious people are begging for ridicule and way beneath the intelligence of the ridiculers.

They have NEVER YET been right. And yet their smug assholery persists.

20. Yep, and when I was concerned a couple of months ago that hospitals

were going to be overwhelmed yet again, I was informed that it will not happen.
Yea, right.

16. When they relaxed the mask mandate.........

anyone with half a brain could see it was way to soon and would lead to increased trouble with the virus.
And that shit if you're vaccinated you don't need to wear a mask, what a bunch of crap. CDC or somebody
needs to come out and say "Everybody standing on U.S. soil needs to wear a mask until we beat the
virus" & "No whining you cry babies" If this virus keeps evolving and makes our vaccines worthless,
we'll be back to everybody stay home except essential workers.

21. Yep, and when CDC said vaccinated people can take off masks and live as normal, and go out and

mingle, I knew it was a load of crap because variants were coming. One would think CDC should have known that too.
Based on this genius advice, many vaccinated people decided they are immune and can just run around as if pandemic was over.
Turns out breakthrough infections aren't as rare as hens teeth.
Delta is breaking through the vaccines.
Vaccinated people are perfectly capable of spreading the virus.
It should be multiple mitigation strategies, not just vaccinations, but masks, social distancing and so on.
Instead we are only counting on the vaccines, and there is only so much a vaccine can do. Especially considering it was designed against the original virus and not the variant.

24. Yes, vaccinated people think they're immune

because the CDC said they didn't have to wear a mask. My Mom (92) is one of them, it takes a lot of english
words to get her to put a mask on for the grocery store. Beginning to think there's left over Qrump loyalists
in the CDC who are busy playing politics instead of good medicine. Wish Biden could force the CDC to come
out with a mask mandate for everyone standing on U.S. soil. And I don't care if your county has no active
virus cases, you don't know how many you avoided by wearing masks.

I don't know how to do it, but should we at DU start a national online petition for everyone to be masked?????
Seems like Politicians need a little nudge now and then.

19. Oh no!

You must be so worried. And angry.

I hope they are in an area where the hospitals aren't overcrowded. The death rates aren't climbing as fast as the new case rate because we're getting better at treating it.

22. Agree

Lulled into a false sense of security after vaccination. Realized slowly we aren't out of the woods. Shame. Elderly family friends, vaccinated previous health issues not doing good.
In the beginning I had a call circle and we reminded each other daily of the rules, risks, deep discussions on what ifs, not making own rules and sticking to health officials guidance. After vaccination the circle has broken, some retired, went back to work. Easy to fool yourself now, truly scary. I am not, have not attended large events, indoor dining. I do not enter any enclosed space w people without a mask.

23. I just read that out of 166 million vaccinated people

1 600 died of breakthrough virus. 74% of breakthru cases were older people.
