I can still get it even though I've had the vaccine. I personally don't care if I get it, but I'd be damned if I spread it to someone and they spread it to one of their elderly family members or young child!

I’d rather be extra cautious than sick. We are vaccinated but as we learned, you can still get COVID when you are vaxxed but won’t end up in the hospital. It still is a horrible experience

Just look at our hospitals. Do you want them to be there if you need them? Or, should they be full of people that had a 99.7% chance of not being there by getting a free shot. It simply speaks for the fact that our education systems fail to teach us to think for ourselves.

All of you anti vaxxers and anti maskers, you feel the same way about seatbelts?

As a front line caregiver I remain astounded by the ability of this virus to outwit us at every turn. Despite abysmal national leadership from the get go, we did a stellar job in Oregon in keeping it at bay, but allowing it to spread nationally created the far less forgiving variants.

I've had the vaccine but am not sure it covers the variant?

Done all I can do, got the shots, avoid prolonged close contact with the public and if I happen to get it, I just get it. It is just another of the growing number of deadly threats one collects as we get older. And as a 70+ I have a lot of them, but worrying about them isn't one of them.

Anything that will keep the proper level of paranoia alive and well is the governments objective to ensure more control.

Does anyone want to explain how they know that the Delta variant is more contagious when they only have one generic test that test for covid or no covid. They aren't testing for different strands. Someone explain this.

I assume the tests are not free to anyone. I assume only those who have been exposed are being tested. Of those only 4.1% are positive so in other words 95.9 percent of those exposed become infected and some of those have been vaccinated. So what the heck is all the clamor to get vaccinated about?

Its just a gimmick. Like using the term new and improved to relabel a product. People are fed up with hearing about COVID and are starting to tern a deaf ear to it. This "Delta" is just a gimmick to try and get them to listen again. But people are not buying it.

I am not concerned about the Delta variant. How many variants have we had now? There have been 11 so far. I am worried about the future variant that becomes far more deadly than any so far. Will those responsible for the death of millions be held accountable?

It/s not really a booster it's the third of a series. This is new and the efficiency is still being established.

Yes I am. We have the medical technology to keep us safe, why not take advantage of it? Those who have not taken advantage of the vaccine do not deserve any sympathy.

1 in 5 new cases are fully vaccinated persons. If you think you are safe because you're vaccinated you are not. People that are vaccinated are spreading the virus because they think they are safe to mingle. OHA website under vaccine break through is the source for this information.

I want to be protected from the virus to the best I can be. I am aware that it is not 100%, but neither is the flu vac. But it helps. Think where we would be if there had been this major social media presence when the polio, measles, chicken pox vaccines came out.

Yes the Demarcates socialist agenda is seriously Hurting this Country! Help wanted signs everywhere, trying to get help with most things is months off, even KFC has no food sometimes, the cook had not arrived. Try to get a plumber or a painter, months out!

Democrats are working with large on line sellers and corporations to destroy small business competitors. COVID lock downs, living rent free and government checks are destroying neighborhood businesses. How do politicians become millionaires?

I'm a manager for a gas station I should have about 8 to 10 employees and I have 1. People in this state do not understand how gas stations work but yet are so impatient, so pathetic, and demand to be served the second they pull in, it's getting out of hand! And this state NEEDS TO GO self-serve
