Peak Stupidity does not recommend the Kung Flu vaccines to anybody. We are Libertarian enough to not propose any steps to be taken by anybody to prevent those who want to take it, want to not take it, or even want to MAKE it. (Sounds like the end of a Jackson Brown song.)
As for one close family member, I've seen the needle and the damage done. I don't see why anyone without any serious risk of hospitalization from the Kung Flu should take a chance with it. That includes almost all young people - call it under 40. I think it would be most especially asinine for young ladies to get vaccinated with something experimental that may have long term effects on fertility.
This post today, though, is about people that, wisely or not, are taking this vaccine due to "don't want to get in trouble or anything, and everybody else is." Big Biz's push for everyone to get jabbed is enabling a few pretty good scams here and there by these people. The guy I talked to directly about it is something like 27 years old in good general health. There are plenty of others too, that are pulling the same particular scam, I've found out.
This company, and I doubt it's the only one, has told those who get the latest anti-Covid booster shot that they most stay away from work for a spell of about one business week afterwards. Yes, they get paid for that time off... for being good compliant citizens.
Now, why would that policy be in place? After all, I've never heard of that policy for flu shots or any other vaccinations. Could this be due to it being known that recently vaccinated people are particularly contagious soon afterward? Who, or what the heck kind of vaccination DOES that? Is it due to those recently vaccinated being at a greater risk of serious and sometimes acute health problems soon afterwards, not a good thing in this occupation? Either way, what are these people implying with this policy?
That aside, that paid time off is a big incentive. Yes, employees are arranging for their booster shots very carefully. It just turns out, coincidentally, of course, that these booster shots are giving them the maximum number of workdays off. I'd call that a scam.
They can have their scams though. It's nothing compared to the damage that I've seen this vaccine cause. Maybe, as with this song, Neil Young was inadvertently very prescient .
Neil Young sang this live version from his 1972 Harvest a half century ago - 1971. It was about heroin. The way the world is today, I wouldn't blame 'em.
PS: Yeah, I took the idea about the Neil Young title from the big man himself, Instapundit. Once he gets a good line, he runs with it!
PPS: Here's another thing, I suppose not a scam, but just more PanicFest pro-vax BS. Per the guy involved in this post here, so smug about "doing the right thing" and getting rewarded for it, in New York City, the restaurant he went to did not require a Covid vax passport, but it gave free pizza slices to those who had them. Did I mention this was NY style, thin-crust pizza? Bastards!
