But a vaccinated person can also be a carrier of the virus and spread it to other vaccinated people.
That's what the experts (not "you know who" ) say, isn't it?

You haven't made one argument why it's a good thing and people should be in favor of discrimination.
Could it be "civic duty"???

I think it's fine to wait for whichever vaccine you have a preference for, as long as in the interim you are avoiding contact and interaction with other people. The same way we dealt with the first year or so of the pandemic.
To put your mind to rest, I'll be doing exactly what I've been doing for the past year or so.
Also, my decision is not something as casual as a "preference".

Well, it's interesting advice since that will be well into 2022. The science behind mRNA is decades in the making. Just sayin'.
I'm well aware of that. So, is my physician, of course.
I take my physician's advice, not advice from any of the "experts" here on JT.

You’d think from the comment section here that it’s a roughly 50-50 split between doctors with regards to getting vaccinated.
Your ratio is of no concern to me.
A poster asked me why.
Nothing more. Nothing less.

Because my physician advised I take the maximum precautions and wait for the Shionogi vaccine or another vaccine based upon well-established and safe technology (i.e. protein subunit vaccine). That's why.

Adjust the cases for the well characterized higher infectivity of the delta strain and you will have your answer, it is obviously invalid to compare two very different situations in time as if the variants were the same.
A licensed doctor? A medical professional? A medical researcher? A virologist perhaps?
Any credentials to back that up?

Proved that second-hand smoke can damage the health of others.
So, the right thing to do is to treat un-vaccinated people like you would "second-hand" smoke???

our civic duty to be vaccinated
This is the kind of mentality that worries me.
Don't get me wrong. I'm all for vaccination, but against mRNA vaccines.

I lost my hometown 女川町 (land and grandparents’ houses).
At least his visit will remind the Japanese people of the hardships people are facing.

Sure, the LDP are a bunch of bozos, but hey, the "main opposition" clowns didn't do so well that last time they were up to bat. Nothing makes me think they'll do any better this time either.

First step is to stop going to Yasukuni.
There's nothing wrong with going to Yasukuni Shrine.
The cherry blossoms there are magnificent.
