Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the declining approval numbers for Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and one poll even has her trailing her likely GOP opponent. They also hammer President Biden for not joining three European nations in condemning Iran’s latest nuclear actions and even trying to ease up on sanctions against Tehran. And they roll their eyes as the Biden administration plans to go door-to-door to encourage more Americans to get vaccinated.

    Some of us are not getting the vaccine because we have already had the disease and are immune to the disease. According to the Cleveland Clinic getting the disease gives you lifetime immunity. According to the CDC and vaccine manufacturers, if you take the vaccine you need a booster in a year or two. So why get the vaccine?

    And oh by the way Jim, masks do nothing to stop the spread of the virus. Stop being so credulous.

    Jim stated that there are really only two reasons right now folks aren’t getting the vaccine, but I’m neither an anti-vaxxer, nor am I lazy. I haven’t gotten the vaccine yet because I got COVID19 in January and I want to see how long the antibodies last, simple as that. I give blood every 8 weeks and they provide an antibody test – I’m still positive.  I’m not convinced I’ll be immune forever, and I will probably get the vaccine in the Fall before numbers tick up again, but for now, I kind of want to see how long they last. We’re still in the early phase of this virus (less than 2 years) so no one knows how long the antibodies last, but no one knows how long the vaccine lasts either. 

    FWIW, there are studies out there that say if you’ve had COVID and you get vaccinated, you’re super-protected. That’s another aspect that might sway me, but for now, in my own way, I’m just doing my part for science. :D

    Haven’t there also been studies showing that if you get the vaccine after already having recovered from covid, the double-whammy to  your immune system can have serious – even fatal – consequences?
