Cannot compete with a Silverado,on performance and style
GM products have been on a slow but steady decline since the late 90s - the reason why you still see 4th gen C/K trucks on the road, but can just about guarantee you won't see any of the new ones in 30 years time.

A vaccine so thoroughly tested that you now require a 3rd mandatory jab. Anyone still in doubt that the vaccines, which we are being told there absolutely are no alternatives to, are far less effective than promised?

If you need to get a vax to gain these so-called 'freedoms,' you're not free. You're a hostage victim.

Lol, almost spat out my tea reading that one... unfortunately Taro suffers from severe atopic dermatitis (known as アトピー in Japanese) so it's not like he can help it

Well, isn't that ironic?

Pfizer and ModernaTX churn out millions upon millions of prototype vaccines but are not held responsible for any problems their contaminated batches cause, government is happy to spend billions on the prototype vaccines but are not held responsible for any outcomes, doctors are protected under professional indemnity and are not held responsible for administering the jab, yet you are irresponsible for declining a potentially contaminated jab that no one takes any responsibility for.

Ok. So I assume they will also be refusing entry to anyone that has not been vaccinated against influenza, tuberculosis, mumps, chickenpox, measles, etc. too?
People were vulnerable to a whole range of things long before Covid ever came along, and yet those risks (and deaths) were deemed acceptable or, more importantly, "that's life."

As a human being, an accountable member of the community and especially as a father, I have some simple, valid and common sense orientated questions... how could these vaccines be considered 'safe'? I wonder when they give out the first and second doses and multitude of future booster shots, do they take into account any and all pre-existing conditions or even any autoimmune diseases and other factors that people may have or don't actually even know they have, including physical trauma and illness? How do we know what the long term effects are? What issues will it cause in years to come? And why are none of the manufacturers liable in any way, shape or form? I'm asking for all of the people that don't seem to have the capacity to ask these simple, rooted in logic questions, that each and every one of us genuinely deserve to have the option to ask without the fear of being shamed and ridiculed as "irresponsible" and labelled an "antivaxxer."

Right. All the anti vaxxers can stop
Does the labeling of those with concerns about the safety of these vaccines as "anti vaxxers" make you feel better about your non-negotiable decision to have taken it?

Every sentence is false, pharmaceutical companies have to take responsibility for all problems, just not directly to the particulars but to governments, which obviously take responsibility by offering compensation even to people tha can't prove vaccines caused any problem. Doctors are held responsible and that is why they need to inform every patient of identified risks and problems (and that is the reason you can't just get a vaccine in the mail).
In theory yes, but "State of Emergency" declarations absolve governments of being held liable. Check your facts on how such declarations allow regular rule of law to be circumvented. As for doctors, General Practitioners are protected under professional indemnity insurance for ANY treatment involving material risks - and that includes the Covid vaccines.
Best of luck with it.

The big pharmaceutical companies will churn out millions upon millions of prototype vaccines but are not held responsible for any problems it causes; government is happy to spend billions on the prototype vaccines but are not held responsible for any outcomes, doctors are not held responsible for giving you the jab, yet, according the majority of JapanToday users, YOU are irresponsible for declining the jab that no one takes any responsibility for.

Any form of coercion, such as "no jab no job," or "no jab no service," is unethical, immoral and constitutionally questionable. If the public would rather trust conspiracy nuts than the mainstream media, that's because you have only your division-sowing, social-engineering selves to blame.

Re: the above comment:
As a human being, an accountable member of the community and especially as a father, I have some simple, valid and common sense orientated questions... If it is not recommended for people over 65, children or pregnant women because of safety concerns, then why is it considered 'safe' for everyone else? Isn't it logical to feel that if it's not recommended for one or more select groups of human beings, then how can it be truly safe for ALL human beings? I wonder if when they give out the doses, do they take into account any and all pre-existing conditions or even any autoimmune diseases and other factors that people may have or don't actually even know they have, including emotional or physical trauma or illness? Or is it a one size fits all approach? And because it has been rushed, how do we know what the long term effects are? What issues could it cause in years to come? And why are none of the manufacturers liable in any way, shape or form? I'm asking for all the journalists and the majority of JapanToday users that don't seem to have the capacity to ask these simple, rooted in logic questions, that each and every ONE of us genuinely deserve to have the option to ask without the fear of being shamed or ridiculed in any way.
