I'm glad that as dumb as some members of my family can be about stuff, they're all pro-vax (and vaccinated). That'd just be a level too far.
Maybe send her this?My mom just showed me an infographic that claims that 210 people in Australia were killed by the COVID-19 vaccines. When I debunked it showing her that it just meant that 210 people have died while vaccinated, and that is lower than the number who would be expected to die during that period anyway, that there's NO correlation, she just said that deaths are under-reported and that it just means that hundreds of more people actually died. She has absolutely no idea how statistics work.
She claims she has been listening to shadow reporting, from people who used to be pro-vaccine and saw how much harm they cause. More like listening to idiots and charlatans. If you don't know how to check an infographic to see if it's actually from the group it claims published, it, then you don't know how to check a huckster's credentials. Moreover, if knowing that someone faked an infographic doesn't tell you that they're lying, then you're just straight up believing what you want to believe regardless of the facts.
Over half of these people who told us as kids, "Don't believe everything you see on the internet." are now watching youtube videos about the Illuminati trying to murder half the world, from a user named AnimeBoy31, and being like "Yes, this I believe."Social media has done everything to our parents that they were worried TV, Movies, and video games were going to do to us.

Perhaps, I'm not very familiar with the EU vaccine passport. I mean, I could always exercise my constitutional right as a citizen to enter into Finland, and give the finger to whatever pansy-ass recommendations they have. That would be easy. But coming back to South East Asia afterwards... That is the hard part.I thought a single shot was enough for the EU vaccine passport?
Yeah, practically every Walgreens and CVS has the home kits available for sale OTC here. I didn't peek at the cost in US$, though.
This should be the PROOF that if we continue to treat this pandemic casually, it will never end.This should not surprise anyone:
