    We should all listen to Faucci - he's the guy who started all of this with his Chinese buddies.

    What does this insane conspiracy nonsense have to do with the Ravens?

    Question: How is Lamar feeling? My understanding is that the vaccine does not necessarily prevent you from getting the virus but it makes it a lot less severe (in most cases)

    I am just hoping the young man is well.

    "New unpublished data showing that vaccinated people infected with the Delta coronavirus variant can have as much virus as those who are unvaccinated is the primary driver for the CDC's latest mask guidance change, a source involved with the decision process told CNN. Overall, vaccinated people still play a small role in transmission and breakthrough infections are rare."

    You left out the part where they say breakthrough infections are rare. You know if you are vaccinate you are far less likely to get Covid.

    Read much? This y'all, never accused Lamar of NOT being vaccinated. If you practiced better reading comprehension I said if players choose not to. I don't know if Lamar has the vaccine or not, if he willingly chose not to get it, then yes he puts his team at a competitive disadvantage.

    It's just as likely this is a reference to the misguided belief some people have that you are fully immunized against Covid if you've had a previous infection.

    Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis reported last month that 11 months after a mild infection immune cells were still capable of producing protective antibodies. The authors concluded that prior Covid infection induces a “robust” and “long-lived humoral immune response,” leading some scientists to suggest that natural immunity is probably lifelong.

    I hope he's okay, too.

    FYI, the vaccine does make infections much less severe. It also makes it much less likely that anyone vaccinated will get the virus.

    Has to be sarcasm, no one is that stupid.

    ETA: Sadly, I stand corrected.

    Re: Lamar

    Obviously hope he is okay above all, that's the most important thing...but really puts the team at a disadvantage here. If he's out 10 days that's a lot of missed time that could have been spent working on under center stuff, implementing other new things, building rapport with the receivers, etc. Not to mention the rest of the offense and defense having to work with/against QBs who are fringe NFL level guys.

    I'm no expert on this, but here's how I see it.

    Lamar would benefit from the vaccine, because the vaccines still offer significant protection against mutated strains, at least strains that have been studied so far like the delta variant. And delta seems to be what's spreading around the most at this point.

    The vaccines aren't as effective against delta as they are against the original popular strains, but that's just a difference of degrees. They still make a big difference.

    The virus has killed over 600k people in the U.S. It can effect the cardiovascular health (among other things) of some of the survivors. If the vaccines reduce your chances of getting the virus and further reduce your chances of a severe case if you do get the virus, then it is obviously safer to get the vaccine.

    I understand some level of reservation over the vaccine. But unless you think the vaccine is going to kill hundreds of thousands of people I don't understand the logic for not wanting to get it. It's everyone's choice to make for themselves. I just don't get the level of skepticism that still exists.

    In Lamar's case, IF he isn't vaccinated (I don't know that he isn't) and if he gets a bad case that wipes out his lungs (admittedly unlikely at his age) he will have to live with the fact that catching COVID may significantly reduce his career earnings when a vaccine probably would have protected him from that outcome. If it kills him (also unlikely) he will lose the opportunity to use those earning to help his family. Again, a vaccine reduces the chances of that outcome significantly.
