Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

Sitting at an outdoor restaurant in Orlando right now. There’s two middle age ladies talking quite loud next to me. One of them seemed to have gotten the vaccine but got it begrudgingly. The other seems like an anti vaxxer saying “get it or don’t” etc etc.

First one claimed to have “Charlie horses” and “feels like she lost taste” since getting the vaccine. I’ve not heard of any of these as a side effect.
Second person shakes her head and literally says “I would rather die to covid than lose taste for life.”

These are the people I’m concerned about. Not only did one make up seemingly new side effects, but now she’s telling her friend that needed no extra convincing to not get it.
😐😐😐

Weird thing is I have had poor smell and taste all.my life but after having it last year and being vaccinated I am noticing smells and tastes are sharper and more defined

If you ignore someone who created a thread, any thread they created disappears from view unless you scroll to the bottom of the page and click "show ignored". I believe you no longer receive notifications for that thread as well.
I tested it earlier when it was mentioned and I did get notifications from others, just not the OP. And yes, ignore threads at the bottom works too.

Yes, feeling superior about the severity of a pandemic is another of the accomplishments my parents always hoped for.
Sorry that came out of frustration on my part. I've seen it happen with others and projected onto you. I think we're cool I hope based on other conversations? Seriously not trying to be mean.

I'm going nuts with Frozen Jr (socially distanced, recorded and all that jazz) so I'm a bit short with patience lately. I apologize.

I checked the VAERS database and there are quite of few reports of loss of taste after getting the vaccine. No idea how long the symptom lasts. Seems like a metal taste in the mouth is also a common symptom.

Disclaimer: Just because it's in VAERS doesn't mean the vaccine was the cause.

The body and the brain are more intertwined than people realize. I am firmly convinced that you can cause physical symptoms by worrying about them too much. Loss of taste is a common Covid symptom. This lady may have been paranoid that the vaccine was going to make her lose taste, and now she's feeling that she's experiencing it. Or it could be a legitimate side effect. Who knows?

Regardless, though, how do you go from "I recently got the vaccine and had this side effect" to "I don't want to lose taste for life"? I am not aware of a single reported case where a side effect from the vaccine lasted more than short period of time. There are certainly no indications that any side effect would last for life.

I wish people would realize that the actual mRNA from the vaccine is completely out of your system and gone after the briefest time. After that, it's just you and your immune system building up its response.

It was the “for life” part that really jumped out to me, too. I really just have no answer as to how or why she jumped to lifetime.

We've talked before about combating vaccine hesitancy through discussion, but I think people like these will never change their minds, unfortunately.

And, as if on queue, I just saw this on my Facebook. Maybe just trust the vaccine??

Please be patient. New Jersey will follow CDC guidelines so it will probably be social distancing in public places goes first masks in public places will go last last. Nobody knows when but New Jersey will be one of the last states to reduce or end mandates

Probably next month, June or July that NJ could end mandates like masks and social distancing soon...

And I think, as I've said many times, that the most effective messaging from the media and public health officials would be "once you are fully vaccinated, you can stop wearing the mask and social distancing." I think vaccine hesitancy would drop by about 80% overnight if everyone got coordinated on that message.
It's hilarious that anti-maskers are still pushing this "you can stop wearing masks if you get the vaccine" thing as the solution to vaccine hesitancy...

I'm sure everyone has seen the spring break pics of kids partying in huge groups without masks. And people all over the country, even places where there are mandates, have been simply going out and not wearing masks for months. Do you really think telling them they can do what they're already doing if they get vaccinated will make a shred of difference? That's bizarrely naive.

There is nothing stopping people from going back to "normal life" right now. They don't NEED to get the vaccine if they don't want it. Why would they? It's not like any kind of verification is being done. If anyone does challenge them for not wearing a mask, they can simply say, "Hey, I'm fully vaccinated!" Who can tell?

But you already know that, don't you?

ATTENTION: Any announcement saying "Once you are vaccinated, you can stop wearing a mask and social distancing" would be IDENTICAL to just dropping mask and distancing mandates. Anti-maskers know this, and that's why they've been pushing it.

If you believe it is still too early to drop masking and distancing mitigations, refute these people every time they make this claim.
