Aug. 7, 1957, the day I was diagnosed with Polio, a day that changed my life forever, there is no doubt, none, that had I been vaccinated by the Salk polio vaccine, I would not have contracted polio.

As I watch people willfully refusing to get vaccinated for COVID, it breaks my heart. The actual science is very clear, vaccination is the only way to reach herd immunity over COVID. The only way to stop COVID is through herd immunity and the sooner the better. COVID will continue to mutate until it runs out of hosts, the sooner we reach herd immunity, the sooner it runs out of hosts.

By the time Dr. Salk produced his killed virus polio vaccine, polio had mutated to 185 variants scattered across three basic types. All three types are including in the Salk vaccine. It has been proven that the Salk Killed Virus Polio Vaccine produces much better immunity than even a natural case of Polio like I had.

It actually took around three years for Dr. Salk to produce his vaccine and get it tested and evaluated and accepted by the FDA of the time. Much of that time was taken up in calculations and collation of data, which today we can do in an instant. The technology that Dr. Salk pioneered led to the ability to produce the safe and effective COVID vaccines we have today.

Please talk to your regular medical doctor if you have any questions or doubts, and please, please, PLEASE get vaccinated! That’s coming from a polio survivor who would give anything in the world to have been vaccinated.

The Trumpian lemmings are heading for the sea and neither the reasonings of your mind or the importunings of your heart will loosen the grip of desperate white grievance that drives their impetuous rush to self destruction.

If only they weren't taking so many of us with them.

👍 well said!

Abe, Where are you? Set this guy straight. I remember you told us:

“Let's see... how many people died from the small pox vaccine? And polio? And MMR? Now, how many people died from these "injectable operating systems"?

Tell him vaccine is poison.

Abe

Wrong, you dunce. This is not a vaccine as the others are/were. I'm glad for actual vaccines that prevent and/or eliminate disease. This one cannot do either and is meant to kill you. Check out how long the clinical trials took before any of those previous vaccines were brought to approved use. And where are we in the clinical trials for the jab? Oh yeah, year one of three. Hmmmm.

VoiceforAll and Abe. It’s been three days. Don’t you have anything to say, guys? Is this too real for you?

Let me help.

Tell him all the bad news about vaccines. And that vaccines are just a plot by “by a handful of gold digging scientists.”

And how he’s just ”blindly believing the advice of those who don't want [him] around.

Mr. Sternhagen was so lucky he was born too late. Right? Dr. Salk was a mass murder who was never brought to justice. Mr. Sternhagen barely escaped.

Tell him. He deserves to know the truth. Besides, he's probably just faking it.

Just like those thousands of socialist Democrats, Black Lives Marxists and Antifa anarchists who are gasping their lives away in our hospitals just to make Republicans look bad.

At least they won’t ransack our Capital again.

(Glad to help, guys. How’d I do?)

Abe

Twisting our words is not the least bit helpful. Then again, that seems to be the natural recourse for the modern liberal.
