Did you get the Covid19 vaccine?
« on: October 14, 2021, 04:48:13 PM »
I wonder what percentage of ddfers didn't get the vaccine at all

See polls
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=122213.0
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=117056.0

Those were a long time ago and before the vaccine was actually available.
I'm wondering what the numbers currently are

Make a new poll.

No, you had 6 options that were unbalanced and leading.

Should we have a poll about that?  :P

Yes but with 3 other options

I count 5 and I'm not sure how they were unbalanced and leading

I'm surprised by how many are undecided. I didn't expect that (I didn't even think to add that option in my original poll)

It was 6 when I added undecided and then decided to just start from scratch :D

They're unbalanced because only the no side has the option of saying if you had COVID or not. The first yes has no qualifier, while the 2nd yes does. There is no option for undecided. Etc.

That means that the current risk analysis doesn't define it as a compelling choice. Should the ascertained risk value go down, or the rewards go up, they'll reevaluate. The government is doing everything in their power now to artificially inflate the rewards column by making various jobs and venue access abilities contingent on vaccination. It's as capitalist as any artificial price fixing, like rent control and EV rebates. Where the free market dictates something to be a bad choice, the government steps in to enforce or facilitate the occurrence of those unwise choices.

Btw, over 80% of poll respondents had COVID, something which is not true for the population at large.

I don't understand the analogy of a medical decision to economics. Can you expound how "free market" and "capitalism" apply to a personal medical decision?

What's so hard to understand? In the free market, individuals perform their own cost / benefit analysis with respect to the vaccine (hopefully based on input from a trusted medical expert).

Government intervention creates artificial demand (or perhaps unwarranted & unhelpful opposition) by implementing rewards / mandates for vaccination.
Risk is opportunity

Ok maybe I'm getting hung up on the semantics: "free market" and "capitalism" don't seem like apt terms when it comes to making a medical choice.

80% of 15 people isn't representative of anything at all

It would be a market failure to allow an easily preventable harmful and deadly infection to spread
