Covidurtue Signalers Are Getting Mad At The Unvaccinated Or Something

Why? If people want to take the chance without the vaccine, that’s on them. Especially since data is showing that the vaccinated can, in fact, get COVID, and the Delta variant is blowing through the vaccine protection, you just don’t get as sick. Usually.

As Virus Cases Rise, Another Contagion Spreads Among the Vaccinated: Anger

As coronavirus cases resurge across the country, many inoculated Americans are losing patience with vaccine holdouts who, they say, are neglecting a civic duty or clinging to conspiracy theories and misinformation even as new patients arrive in emergency rooms and the nation renews mask advisories.

And many of them don’t think they need it as they never caught it during all those months. And don’t trust something that was developed so quickly. One with no real trials. And more legitimate reasons.

The country seemed to be exiting the pandemic; barely a month ago, a sense of celebration was palpable. Now many of the vaccinated fear for their unvaccinated children and worry that they are at risk themselves for breakthrough infections. Rising case rates are upending plans for school and workplace reopenings, and threatening another wave of infections that may overwhelm hospitals in many communities.

Even if we had everyone vaccinated

“It’s like the sun has come up in the morning and everyone is arguing about it,” said Jim Taylor, 66, a retired civil servant in Baton Rouge, La., a state in which fewer than half of adults are fully vaccinated.

Or, you can mind your own business and take care of yourself and family, and let others do their thing.

“The virus is here and it’s killing people, and we have a time-tested way to stop it — and we won’t do it. It’s an outrage.”

The rising sentiment is contributing to support for more coercive measures. Scientists, business leaders and government officials are calling for vaccine mandates — if not by the federal government, then by local jurisdictions, schools, employers and businesses.

“I’ve become angrier as time has gone on,” said Doug Robertson, 39, a teacher who lives outside Portland, Ore., and has three children too young to be vaccinated, including a toddler with a serious health condition.

These are the same people who wear masks to own the Cons. And then leave their noses (and even mouths) constantly uncovered. Wear it wrong so it doesn’t cover the sides of their faces properly. And then bro-hug. Get too close. Lower it when done at gym and immediately light up a smoke (yeah, that was yesterday morning). Wear one when solo in their own car. This is the NY Times trying to make people angry. I’ve seen some of these nuts online, but, never seen one in person. Have you? If they want to get angry, and let the Times make them angry (does the Times require all employees to be vaccinated?), well, they can simply mind their own f’ing business.

The Department of Veterans Affairs on Monday required that 115,000 on-site health care workers be vaccinated in the next two months, the first federal agency to order a mandate. Nearly 60 major medical organizations, including the American Medical Association and the American Nurses Association, on Monday called for mandatory vaccination of all health care workers.

What about the Times? Regardless, a lot of people will quit, and an already medically understaffed VA will lose more medical professionals, just like at hospitals. Why is it that you see numbers that say that 30% of hospital staff are not vaccinated, when they were the first to be allowed? Maybe they all don’t trust it.

Communities from San Francisco to Austin, Texas, are recommending that vaccinated people wear masks again in public indoor settings. Citing the spread of the more contagious Delta variant of the virus, the counties of Los Angeles and St. Louis, Mo., have ordered indoor mask mandates.

The masks that didn’t work. Thin pieces of cloth that do not stop viruses.

“It goes beyond just putting us at risk,” he said. “People with privilege are refusing the vaccine, and it’s affecting our economy and perpetuating the cycle.” As infections rise, he added, “I feel like we’re at that same precipice as just a year ago, where people don’t care if more people die.”

Privilege. Sigh.

Some are even wondering how much sympathy they should have for fellow citizens who are not acting in their own best interest. “I feel like if you chose not to get vaccinated, and now you get sick, it’s kind of your bad,” said Lia Hockett, 21, the manager of Thunderbolt Spiritual Books in Santa Monica, Calif.

She’s right. What about if you’re vaccinated and get sick?

Rising resentment among the vaccinated may well lead to public support for more coercive requirements, including mandates, but experts warn that punitive measures and social ostracism can backfire, shutting down dialogue and outreach efforts.

People are too invested in Other People’s lives, and really just need to mind their own business. Even with something like COVID. Give me my space, don’t touch me, and live your life, make your decision on being vaccinated, I’ll make mine.

    People are too invested in other people’s lives……. like forcing women who become pregnant to give birth?
    Or not alowing other people to choose their gender identity?
    Or demanding all to recite the Pledge if Allegiance or stand during the playing of the national anthem?
    Being unvaccinated effects others just as drinking and driving
    All Americans used to be vaccinated against small pox
    Children need vaccinations to go to school an unvaccinated person can make others including the vaccinated sick ( although of course not as sick
    ) should an unvaccinated teacher or Healthcare worker be allowed to endanger children or those with compromised immune systems ? Be a good citizen get vaccinated don’t risk the health of others

    People are still dying, including those who didn’t think they needed the vaccine as they never caught it during all those months.

    William Teach: And don’t trust something that was developed so quickly. One with no real trials.

    The vaccines went through all three phases of drug testing, and then follow up.

    William Teach: Even if we had everyone vaccinated

    If everyone were vaccinated, the rates of infection and hospitalization and death would drop. Cases would be minimal and could be handled through isolation and contact tracing.

    William Teach: “71% of Iceland vaccinated. 82% of new cases among those vaccinated”

    And when vaccination is 100%, then every single infection will be in someone who has been vaccinated. But infections will be lower than otherwise, as well as hospitalizations and deaths.

    Country, deaths per million population
    U.S., 1883
    Iceland, 87

    William Teach: Or, you can mind your own business and take care of yourself and family, and let others do their thing.

    Society has an interest in whether or not you are spreading a potentially fatal disease to your neighbors.

    William Teach: The masks that didn’t work. Thin pieces of cloth that do not stop viruses.

    Masks are not foolproof, but they can stop some of the small droplets that carry disease.

    William Teach: What about if you’re vaccinated and get sick?

    Ben Franklin: In 1736 I lost one of my sons, a fine boy of four years old, by the smallpox taken in the common way. I long regretted bitterly and still regret that I had not given it to him by inoculation. This I mention for the sake of the parents who omit that operation, on the supposition that they should never forgive themselves if a child died under it; my example showing that the regret may be the same either way, and that, therefore, the safer should be chosen.

    William Teach: Give me my space, don’t touch me, and live your life, make your decision on being vaccinated, I’ll make mine.

    If you were to completely isolate yourself, then you might have a point (grow your own food, make your own stone tools), but there is no practical way to do that for the vast majority of people.
