Emirates will offer free COVID-19 insurance to all of its passengers who travel by October 31. The insurance covers medical expenses, quarantine costs, and repatriation if you miss your flight home.

And who knows how many times booster shots might be needed. And given that so many people are definitely anti-vaccine, there is no guarantee that even if there IS a one-shot vaccine, that enough people would use it to provide any meaningful coverage. Imagine if the vaccine needs a booster every 6-months. And if you don't get the booster, your 'immunity' goes away.

Given the mess that the pharmaceutical industry is in this country, what does the vaccine's existence even matter? If you can't depend on the booster being available, why get the first shot at all?

If trump is reelected, the world is doomed. Nothing will ever be sane, or functional ever again, and we will all get sicker, and the rich will get richer, and we all die sooner.

God bless America, or else...
