I got vaccinated 4 months ago but I’m starting to regret it?

Anonymous
I got vaccinated back in May when I was 39 and I recently turned 40. Im in excellent physical shape and have no preexistíng conditions. I got tested a grand total of 16 times for covid during the pandemic and i was negative every single time. Nobody in my immediate family got covid. Also I know I had been exposed to covid several times during lockdown but I always came out in the clear.

The real reason I got the vaccine is I planned to travel abroad and proof of vaccination was required at customs. I felt very borderline about the benefits vs risks of getting the vaccine. Im not 19 but definitely not 65 either. It was a real coin toss for me.

Anyway I was pro vaccine until the recent government mandates started rolling out. Also my own company required proof of vaccination despite the fact I work 100% remote. I had to take screenshots of the covid paperwork I have.

I think people need to be respected as free adults to make their own decisions to take it or not. If a 75 year old man decides not to vaccinate and he ends up getting COVID then it’s on him at this point. I also think it’s child abuse to force kids under 18 to get this. If was under 30 I probably would refuse it.

Anyway I’m not an anti vaxxer but I am becoming increasingly alarmed by how governments are forcing this.

Well knock on wood that I won’t have any side effects to this. I’m not glowing green yet.

But I heard a theory by Joe Rogan that vaccines actually HELP THE VIRUS MUTATE. Now that’s from joe Rogan who is no doctor and nutty at times. But he has a way of offering unique perspectives that no one else thought about. That’s why he’s famous and his podcast is popular.

Some people took my comment about Joe Rogan and ran with it. I said I was open to hearing him out but sure as hell didn’t think his insight was the voice of God.

Here is a Forbes article with a doctor refuting what rogan said. Forbes is mostly centrist so I trust them a lot more vs. a CNN or FOX article.
