I'm still pissed I hadn't gotten my mutant powers yet.

TNMalt:
And I want my nanobot built 5G network. Will save me on upgrading my smartphone.

Yep.  It's the same reason I bought my Tiger Repelllent Necklace.  I haven't seen a Tiger in my neighborhood once!

Or, maybe, no one has any idea how you would have reacted without a jab, since the efficacy of the vaccine is based on statistical data and not a comparison to multiple infections (in the same person, one time with and one time without)?  The level of faith involved here is staggering...

You know where another level of faith is staggering? Among no-vaxxers who, once they find themselves (or a relative) with a ventilator up in the ass, immediately ask for prayers. Usually these appeals go to "Prayer Warriors" (which would be a great Prestige Class for D&D, admittedly). People who derided the idea that vaccines could have been developed in one year are now the first in line to ask God for "a miracle". These stories almost inevitably end up with the Covided person "being now one with God", or Jesus, or the angels (thus bringing Covid up there to more unvaxxed, I guess, since no no-vaxxer would have faith in pro-vaxxers).

Yup, faith is a bitch.

I imagine the same is true for people of faith that got vaccinated.

As for the people that derided the idea that vaccines could be developed in a year, many of those are the same people that said they would not take "Trump's vaccine" and yet are now pushing vaccine mandates.

And to go back to your initial point of "faith", what about faith in masks other than N-95s? It's like a fucking cargo cult. Or the faith in the vaccine with respect to masks ("Vax or Mask"), herd immunity (anyone know what percentage St. Fauci is now touting), or preventing transmission (Gibraltar at 100+% vaccinated illustrated that falsehood).

What's left is that the vaccine reduces symptoms such that hospitalizations and deaths are reduced, assuming you get boosted every six months.

So make your decision and let others make theirs. Just like we allow people to make the choice to become obese, not treat their diabetes or hypertension, not exercise, be a drug addict, etc., if someone does not want to take the vaccine and subsequently dies from covid, I would no more mock them than I would someone who dies from complications due to their untreated diabetes. Btw, that litany of woes is pretty much the nominal patient at the rehab hospital my wife works at.
