This is a fun one, I hope.
I visited the States some months ago and accepted being vaccinated due to the fact that the persons in who´s house I was staying expected it from me. Stupid of me without doubt, but it was given to me in a native American health care center; that´s my way of praying and when I saw the Eagle details on the building I decided that it should mean that I was protected. So I accepted the vaccine.
Now a couple of days ago a vaccine sceptical movie reached me; I saw it and I felt I had made a mistake letting into my body. In the same moment a message reached me on whatsapp; a girl teasing me saying that I´m Rasputin incarnated (for having a beard, what did you think?). I later thought about what it meant in the context where it reached be; Rasputin was incredibly hard to kill; they poisened him, they shot him, then they shot him again in the head at short distance and then drowned him in the river. Death cause: Drowning! So... Die hard, to say the least. So I feel that I have nothing to fear from the vaccine...
And then yesterday when I told the cab driver about the eagle omen related to the vaccine, we drove by a bar with a sign for the Mexican beer Tecate lager. It´s symbol: an eagle.
Well, just to be on the safe side...don't get the booster
I had appointments that I made myself to get the vaccine so that I could travel Asia more easily, I cancelled both of them because I had a bad feeling just before. The main thing was, I didn't really want to get it, its just that I could avoid an expensive quarantine at a hotel $1700.00 for two weeks, and instead just go straight to an Air BnB at $300 for a whole month in Thailand.
Now, it is announced that starting October 30th, I will not be able to leave Canada without being vaccinated. Also, we are not allowed to go to the gym without the vaccine, but we don't need the vaccine to go to McDonalds, lol. I was considering the vaccine before just to make things easier for Asia, but now that I "have" to get it, it feels weird to me.
Most of the people here are already vaccinated in order for them to keep their jobs, so not too many people are making a big stink about the new control rules as it doesn't affect them. It's not even about pro-vax/anti-vax at this point, things are becoming very Orwellian, and that is the issue that it seems a lot of people are overlooking, which to me, is concerning.
That said, none of the people I know who have had the vaccine have died.
Can I sell all my stuff and leave the country before the 30th? That's really not a lot of time. Do I just get the vaccine to make things easier? I just don't know...
are you sure that you can't leave canada without vaccine or you just can't renenter canada?
Okay, so if you say you are returning in 24 hours, you can go. So when you are ready to leave, if indeed you decided to leave, you can just say you will be back in a few hours and never come back? My opinion is that its worth waiting before doing anything. If its possible to just not do a lot of things for a year or two to see the long term effects of the vaccine. Its not proofing all that effective, maybe down the road they will stop pushing it or not care about enforcing it one's the covid fades away. So i think its best to just ignore doing things in the world and wait and see just what is going to happen and just what the vaccine will or don't do.
