I wasn’t aware that only the first handfull of memes (in these bigger posts) was clickable till someone commented on the last post. I figure I’m overloading the algorithm but untill I can get caught up it is what it is. I’m trying a couple different things in this post to see if that fixes the problem, but if it doesn’t, try right click – open in new tab to view the memes in full screen.
First memes post of the new year!

The new booster might not be all that. (I mean, they only tested it on a handfull of mice before releasing it, why would there be a problem with it??)

Study looking at vax’d 6th graders, in a primary school (where they are the only vax’d students), vs in a middle school (where there’s a much higher rate of vax’d students).

I feel like I’m repeating myself, but apparently this is a novel concept for some people. When you stop exposing your immune system to things it stops working right.
