Not-so-serious alternativ­es to vaccine


I heard on the news this morning that our local farm stores have run out of ivermectin, the medicine livestock owners use to kill worms in their horses and cattle. I have some alternativ­es to suggest for those who can’t find ivermectin to protect themselves from the coronaviru­s but don’t trust the FDA-approved vaccine.

How about Roundup? It kills weeds, so why wouldn’t it also kill the coronaviru­s. Snail bait? A handful in your breakfast cereal might work, too. Of course, I’m not serious. Roundup and snail bait are poisonous to humans and could seriously harm or kill anyone stupid enough to try them. Just like ivermectin.
