Be a good global citizen! Follow the Prophet. GET VACCINATED!

Be a good global citizen! Follow the Prophet. Get Vaccinated!

The First Presidency released a statement discussing the importance of immunization against preventable diseases, encouraging members to get their shots once they become eligible.

The full statement reads:

"In word and deed, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has supported vaccinations for generations. As a prominent component of our humanitarian efforts, the Church has funded, distributed and administered life-saving vaccines throughout the world. Vaccinations have helped curb or eliminate devastating communicable diseases, such as polio, diphtheria, tetanus, smallpox and measles. Vaccinations administered by competent medical professionals protect health and preserve life.

"As this pandemic spread across the world, the Church immediately canceled meetings, closed temples, and restricted other activities because of our desire to be good global citizens and do our part to fight the pandemic.

"Now, COVID-19 vaccines that many have worked, prayed, and fasted for are being developed, and some are being provided. Under the guidelines issued by local health officials, vaccinations were first offered to health care workers, first responders, and other high-priority recipients. Because of their age, Senior Church leaders over 70 now welcome the opportunity to be vaccinated.

"As appropriate opportunities become available, the Church urges its members, employees and missionaries to be good global citizens and help quell the pandemic by safeguarding themselves and others through immunization. Individuals are responsible to make their own decisions about vaccination. In making that determination, we recommend that, where possible, they counsel with a competent medical professional about their personal circumstances and needs.

My wife and I try to "immunize" ourselves against these viruses by using "Crazy Russian Dad's Alphabet Remedy" as he put forth in a humorous but scientifically accurate Youtube video several months ago "Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Stolchnya (we substitute Selenium for the S), Zinc; right down the alphabet", to which we add B1 (from a strong Multi-vitamin), Vitamin E, aged Garlic (Kyolic), and occasionally Echinacea (from Airborne brand cold remedy) as suggested by medical journalist Bill Sardi and others. If we felt these were insufficient we would add quercetin and possibly Ivermectin (veterinary if the Doc won't prescribe), but so far haven't needed to.

Pass. I won't be "following the prophet" on this one.

Too much uncertainty and why do we need a vaccine for a virus that has a survivability rate above 99% (often more like 99.95%)?
