So there’s this thing going around on Facebook and it is one of the most inane, ignorant things I have come across in a long time. I mean I’ve seen some really stupid things but this is really ignorant and uninformed. I’m going to put it here and then I’m going to tell you why it’s stupid.
“I’m vaccinated and no, I don’t know what’s in it – neither this vaccine, the ones I had as a child, nor in the Popeye’s chicken sandwich, or in smoked sausages, or in other treatments…whether it’s for cancer, AIDS, the one for polyarthritis, or vaccines for infants or children. I trust my doctor when he says it’s needed.
I also don’t know what’s in Ibuprofen, Tylenol, or other meds, it just cures my headaches & my pains …
I don’t know what’s in the ink for tattoos, cigars, or every ingredient in my soap or shampoo or even deodorants. I don’t know the long term effect of cell phone use or whether or not that restaurant I just ate at REALLY used clean foods and washed their hands.
In short …
There’s a lot of things I don’t know and never will…
I just know one thing: life is short, very short, and I still want to do something other than just going to work every day or staying locked in my home. I still want to travel and hug people without fear and find a little feeling of life “before”.
As a child and as an adult I’ve been vaccinated for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, chicken pox, and quite a few others; my parents and I trusted the science and never had to suffer through or transmit any of said diseases … just saying.
You are not vaccinated, I respect your choice,
I am vaccinated, respect my choice …
I’m vaccinated, not to please the government but:
- To not die from Covid-19.
- To NOT clutter a hospital bed if I get sick.
- To hug my loved ones
- To Not have to do PCR or antigenic tests to go out dancing, go to a restaurant, go on holidays and many more things to come …
- To live my life.
- To have my kids/grandkids go back to school and play sports.
- For Covid-19 to be an old memory.
- To protect us.

First off I know what is in McDonalds hamburgers and chicken nuggets and I choose not to eat them. I know what hotdogs are made of and I choose the kosher ones so I know what’s in them. I know what’s in vapes and I choose not to smoke them. I do my due diligence and research everything. Which is why I opted not to put synthetic hormones in my body while going through menopause.
Oh and the childhood vaccines, well we have had years of research with those. You take the polio vaccine and you don’t get polio. This is insane, why are people so blind and ignorant that they do no research and just stuff themselves full of chemicals and all of the bad things. I honestly do not understand.
I also read the ingredients for my shampoo, conditioner and soap, I’m one of those.
Please for the love of all that is holy stop being ignorant of what you are putting into your body.
