If the passengers that are afraid of covid has access to the 'shot' and can wear a mask if they choose then aren't they safe from evil people like me who has had covid naturally and has a stronger  immunity than they?

So you're twice as likely to be reinfected if you've had Covid vs the vaccine? 

 

What's the odds with the vaccine?   Hmm,  they don't really say.   Funny how that works. 

 

Is it 1%?  So it doubles to 2%?  Should I shudder in fear?   In both cases,  they say you won't get serious symptoms anyways. 

 

Again,  what's the line in the sand?   When do you need a second vaccine because your first wasn't good enough.?  

 

If I'm told to get vaccinated (again) because there's a 99% chance I won't get the sniffles,  I'm not agreeing with your logic and acceptance of risk.   Because the next guy will be ever more paranoid and he'll demand a booster shot every month.

Listen to cyle here, flexing on a virus on an airline messageboard. I bet it’s quaking in its nucleocapsid!

 

And gsking, I hear your takes  completely; I just think 1) where we are at as a society it is far more helpful for companies to start mandating them to get us over the hump (my industry mostly has just due to all the lost days of work), and 2) Southwest can’t say that they can’t give us OJ or scotch or soda water or whatever because they want to lessen the contact and subsequent risk the FAs have to take, then not mandate a vaccine that has demonstrably proved to reduce that risk. It looks like a gutless cop-out. So we keep doing what we’ve all been doing for…???

I’m vaccinated but the more time I spend around unvaccinated people, walking Petri dishes for covid variants, the more I increase my chances of a breakthrough infection. 

here them is just another in the evergreen reasons not to fly southwest. I’ll pay a little more to fly United, select my seat in advance, and be safe.

Congratulations.   Don't let the emergency exit door hit you in the butt on the way down the slide.
