The Health Council has figured it out.In the fall, all people over 60, pregnant and those in a medical risk group, a total of as many as 4 million people, may go for the next Corona shot. For many, that would already be their fifth jab. For some, the sixth. The enthusiasm for getting this jab seems to be waning. Therefore, we decided to give the government a hand and give 10 reasons why you should still take this shot.
1. You'd like to get Corona
As we explained on this site before, each additional vaccination increases the chance of getting Corona (again). And a positive Coronatest is easily good for 2 weeks of free vacation anyway, assuming of course that you are employed by a company that continues to pay you on sick leave. Besides, that positive test often gets a lot of people showing compassion and what could be finer than that? You're happy to accept a few days of feeling lousy, right? Last time (2/3/4/5) you didn't die from it either, so it's not that bad.
2. You can't wait for the "Completed Life" law.
Although D66 introduced the "Completed Life" initiative bill back in 2020, it still doesn't want to make headway in getting this law through the chambers that is supposed to make it possible to perform euthanasia after age 75, simply because you are done with life. If you were waiting for that, this Coronaprik may seem like a good substitute. Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, in Dutch "suddenly dropping dead," is associated with the mRNA vaccinationsHow nice is that? One minute you're fine, the next you're dead. A finer way to exchange the temporary for the eternal is not really possible, is it? Unfortunately, success is not guaranteed. Some go through hell after an mRNA vaccination before they are allowed to end their lives.
3. You hate waste
The jabs were ordered by Minister Kuipers through the European Union some time ago. Then of course they had better be used. Otherwise they will have to be thrown away and that is of course a shame. I mean, you wouldn't throw away food just because it's past the date, would you? Right? Well then.
4. It's free
This jab is completely free for you. You are Dutch or you are not. Get that jab!
By the way, of course someone is paying. 4 million pricks x 25 euros per prick is 100 million euros. On top of this comes about 50 euros for actually injecting it. (a little less if you have it done by the general practitioner, a little more if the general practitioner has to visit you for that) so if all 4 million people are going to get this shot as well, that's another 200 million euros. But that will just be paid by all citizens, so the citizens who don't get the shot will pay for you. You can profit nicely from that! If you've agreed to share the bill at the restaurant, you'll have an extra drink, right? Or two?
5. It's a fun outing
Of course, if you are otherwise mostly home alone, such a visit to the doctor's office is also a very nice break in the day. What could be cozier than standing in line together to be pricked? And a big advantage of the Corona pricks is that you have to stay for at least 15 minutes after being pricked to make sure you don't have an allergic reaction to the prick or otherwise go down from it. Fortunately, that happens from time to time, so you're never short of a conversation topic with each other.
6. You enjoy helping with scientific research
Last year, several statisticians created models that predict how much excess mortality a new round of vaccination will produce. Testing those models still requires something, though: Data. If no one got these Corona shots, these statisticians wouldn't be able to test their model. And you like to put your body at the service of science. Right? So get that prick!
7. The experts won't be wrong again, will they?
Vaccine experts like Peter Hotez indicated that after 1, later after 2 Corona injections you could no longer get Corona. Still later he admitted that this was not true, but that after an additional booster you really would not get Corona anyway. Somewhat later, that became after the 2nd booster.
ThreeFour times is the charm. It is very unlikely though that a true expert like Dr. Hotez is wrong again. And he indicates that you should take this jab. Trust the science. So...
8. You are unwanted pregnant and late for abortion
According to the NOS, this shot is also being offered to pregnant women in their 22nd week. This is despite the fact that pregnant women were excluded from Pfizer and Moderna's original trials and subsequent studies have shown that pregnant women are more likely to have a stillbirth of their baby after vaccination and on miscarriages in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. Corona vaccine mRNA also appears to be passed in breast milk and penetrate the placenta.
But of course this presents opportunities! If you have an unwanted pregnancy, but discovered it too late and are therefore no longer eligible for an abortion, these Corona shots may be an opportunity to still achieve your goal. In Scotland, you have higher infant mortality from the jab even after birth.
TIP: Look into getting pricked in Germany, it seems to have even more effect there than in the Netherlands. In Sweden too, for that matter.
9. You never use a jab incorrectly
What a disappointment that mouth caps turn out to do nothing against spread1Cochrane study! Fortunately, the experts who previously recommended mouth caps are out. It's not because of the mouth masks and how the virus is spread, it's because of us. We are just using the mouth masks wrong! What a relief that you don't have that kind of problem with a Corona shot. At least with a prick you know for sure: you can't use it wrong. Once it's in, it never, ever, ever goes out. Phew!
10. You want to do "the right thing"
If all the previous reasons haven't convinced you yet, this will definitely be it. Going to get that prick is just "the right thing to do." Who says so? Well, Minister Kuipers, people at the talking tables, who doesn't, really? That none of them can medically substantiate why you should get that shot doesn't matter. It's not about that. The point is that you feel good when you get it. You did the right thing. Good for you!
Bonus tip: The blue batches work best!
Then comes the key question: which brand should you get? At https://howbadismybatch.com you can find out which batches are the most effective. See if you can find out which batch your jab comes from.
Depending on your reason for getting the jab, you can pick the best batch for you based on the chart to the right. If reason 2 or 8 were the deciding factor for you, you want the blue batches. They have the best chance of success. If your main concern is sociability or "doing the right thing," you might consider the yellow batches. Also, take a look at these articles from three months and a year and a half ago to help you make the right choice.
Ignore for a moment the stories about really nasty adverse events. Keep in mind: Without the Corona jabs, the adverse events would have been much worse! Right?
