Please tell me that you are not all professional pilots!
If the Professional Medical Scientists Rumour Network existed for you think they would be sharing their ďtheoriesĒ about the research they had conducted which had proven that airline pilots are secretly spreading chemtrails? No, somehow I donít think theyíd be that dumb.

Heíll be bowled over in the rush to get one once itís released. Normal people have no fears about receiving a vaccine that has been thoroughly developed and checked like any other vaccine out there.

I agree. For a forum for those working in, or associated with a skills-based industry, I am appalled with some of the posts.
I assume that the poster who isn't using any public transport isn't flying either, unless he's piloting his own plane.
And anyone who doesn't take the vaccine isn't just putting himself at risk, he's also risking the life of anyone he comes in contact with who has a weak immune system and cannot be vaccinated.

There is a reason airlines call for a doctor on the plane when there's a medical situation.

I look critical that the information that comes from official channels, because I look critical at all information; it is so easy to spread bullshit. And in these Covid days a lot of bullshit is spread; let's start by blaming the current "Chief twitterer of the US" and then go all the way down to the anti-vax conspiracy theorists.

Iím not an anti-vaxxer by any stretch of the imagination but the thing being so blatantly overlooked here is that itís a very slippery slope once you start mandating stuff like this. So Airlines require a vaccine for travel, whatís to stop people being asked to show proof of vaccination before stepping on the London Underground? Or taking their seat in a packed theatre? Or doing their shopping in a busy supermarket? Whatís the difference here? Itís hard to maintain the stance that a vaccine isnít compulsory when potentially every activity in life requires it.

Would you mind sharing that link to the BBC interview? I’d like to pass it on.

The difference between DNA and RNA is that DNA lacks an oxygen atom that’s present in RNA (Hence the “D” for Deoxyribose). That small structural change leads to a host of functional changes of the molecule within the cell.

I totally agree with Qantas.

if you don’t like it, don’t use them.

Interesting programme that was on the BBC a few months ago.
