I voted yes because they're representing their country, and I'm sure the citizens of Japan would want everyone visiting Japan to be vaccinated.

Posted in: Do you think vaccination will be the silver bullet against the coronavirus? See in context

It's the "only" silver bullet we have. Social distancing and washing your hands will only work for so long. Vaccines have worked for so many other diseases, everyone roll up your sleeves and take a shot. I did 2 months ago and I felt nothing.

Japan has completely the opposite plan. Japan thinks as long as they don't test the number's will be low. But if you're only testing 1/10 per capita, Japan's number's will only be 1/10 of Japan's real number's.

If Japan let "everyone " in then Japan would get every covid variant there is, vaccine or no vaccine you can still be a carrier.

Of course they are, like the number's are creeping up in a lot of countries. If Japan actually did testing on the scale of other developed countries, the number's would be skyrocketing.

To the ridiculous rumor spreaders! The two Covid-19 vaccines approved for use in the United States have reassuring safety profiles with no concerning new issues found in data collected from the first month of vaccinations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday.

After administration of 13.8 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines to the U.S. population, most reports indicated non-serious side effects of the type that had been expected, such as headaches and fatigue. No deaths have been attributed to the vaccines, the data showed.

The CDC collected data between Dec. 14, 2020 and Jan. 13, 2021 from both an existing national surveillance system for adverse events and its own safety monitoring system established for Covid-19 vaccines.

During that time, 6,994 reports of adverse events after vaccination were recorded in the national surveillance system with 90.8 percent of them classified as non-serious and 9.2 percent as serious.

Rare cases of anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction requiring medical attention, were reported with both vaccines at a rate of 4.5 cases per million doses administered, down from the agency's previously reported rate of 5 per million doses administered. The rate of anaphylaxis linked to Covid shots is similar to other vaccines, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Friday during the White House Covid-19 Response Team briefing.

"Healthcare providers and vaccine recipients can be reassured about the safety of Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines," the CDC said.

Posted in: Would you support airlines refusing to admit passengers unless they have proof of COVID-19 vaccination or immunity, as a condition for international travel? See in context

To Sandybeachheaven,

Why would your nephew have two flu shots? Or did you mean covid vaccination? A very small percentage of people do have a reaction to the vaccine. Just because you don't do well with the flu vaccination doesn't mean you will have the same result from the covid vaccination. That's like comparing apples to oranges, completely different. Personally I sometimes feel under the weather for about 24 hours after the flu shot, which is normal it means my immune system is working. But this year, nothing. And of course no flu anywhere because everyone is washing their hand's, wearing masks, and social distancing.
