I have no more patience left for that group.
They won’t listen to me, or to you, or to anyone that’s not part of their ‘tribe’. The right wing has decided (stupidly) that this is an us vs them political issue. Until they decide that it’s an all of us vs the virus public health issue, nothing will change. Yelling and shaming won’t help, but it’s a form of catharsis for the rest of us.
Since they’ve made this calculation, they should just hurry up and get infected already. That’s realistically what they’ve gone with. I’d just like to see the insurance companies cutting Covid related expenses from policies if people are choosing to go unvaccinated.
What makes their political identity so ridiculous is the fact that if trump had won and been in charge of the "wonderful vaccine, perhaps the greatest vaccine of all time"(spoken in a trump voice), ALL Republicans would have already gotten it and the booster! It is absolutely crazy that the republican leaders have chosen the vaccine developed under the trump government to fight against because Joe is in charge of giving it out.
I think you are right that the unvaccinated will all get covid. I think the health care system has basically realized that vaccinating the last few is near impossible so they are just figuring out how to slow down the spread enough that our Healthcare system can handle the extra sick people.
In regards to the unvaccinated hockey player who got myopericarditis, that is not uncommon with viral infections. All the scary side effects people are worried about getting from the vaccine, you can also have with the infection + you have an infection. It's weird to me that people are so scared of the vaccine but not the infection.
