Steve, for the record I do not find you annoying.
Hilarious, yes. Annoying, no.
Always happy to provide you with some entertainment Chip. How's the weather in Blighty? Texas is just experiencing some of that global warming that was promised years ago Mr Gore.

Spring has arrived in Blighty and Portugal. Hopefully you will be around to enjoy the unpredictable weather in Texas given that you refuse to be vaccinate. I wouldn't like to see an end to the entertainment you provide.

Regarding Vitamin D do you know that Portugal has on average 8 hrs of sunshine per day? Are you aware you can overdose on vitamin D supplement?
Overdose on vitamin D? That is hilarious. I guess you're right you can overdose on anything if you take enough of it even water. But a little known fact that perhaps you're not aware is that the majority of people especially in the older population are Vitamid D deficient. You're not getting a lot of sunshine in Portugal this winter are you?
Quoting Reg:

Who says that vaccines give you 100% immunity? I certainly didn't! However, it might help you fight the virus so that you don't end up in a hospital on a ventilator or end up in another country for treatment. But then who is going to argue with you Steve being the "Fount of Wisdom".
We're not talking about vaccines in general, we are talking about a gene therapy that has been labeled vaccine which gives you 0% immunity. And yes once again you're right it might help you fight the virus. Since the testing of this treatment hasn't finished, who knows.

Words of wisdom from Rabbi Chananya Weissman
"It’s not a vaccine. A vaccine by definition provides immunity to a disease. This does not provide immunity to anything. In a best-case scenario, it merely reduces the chance of getting a severe case of a virus if one catches it. Hence, it is a medical treatment, not a vaccine. I do not want to take a medical treatment for an illness I do not have."

I am concerned that some people actually believe the nonsense Steve posts? I am glad he did not recommend using bleach in his comment.

It has been established that the current treatments being called vaccines (Pfizer and moderna) do not offer immunity for this virus.

Source please. Or have you been at the cooking sherry again?

Steve You should know by now that I do not rely on models, algorithms or fancy graphs. Sweden and Korean have realised that herd immunity is not working. Isn't it time you do the same?
Herd immunity is the only way to get protection agains influenza or corona viruses. It was achieved with previous strains and it is being achieved with this one. It happens every year.

It has been established that the current treatments being called vaccines (Pfizer and moderna) do not offer immunity for this virus. So you better start believing in your own bodies ability to fight disease by using supplements to boost it's immune system.
Research vitamin D and T-Cells.

Things that affect your immune system:
low oxygen levels in your blood, stress, anxiety, lack of social interaction, lack of sunlight. This is what has been achieved with mask wearing and lockdowns.

Unfortunately I cannot lay my hands on the article that reported tenfold hospitalisation. However I suggest you read this link which reports on hospitalisation numbers and effects that Covid has on young people.

Do I believe "herd immunity is only achievable with vaccine"? The answer is: NO! Not while we have "conspiracy" artists spewing misinformation on social media.
