Anyone else notice the narrative being pushed here. Every article in Media now is about folks who didn't get the vaccine. Wonder why? It's not a coincidence....
I noticed that, too.
Calling this the "pandemic of the unvaccinated" is just political spin to abdicate responsibility from GOVERNMENT inaction onto the people. And it doesn't address the causes of vaccine hesitancy.
And besides, we won't be able to vaccinate our way out of this now. Other countries with vaccine rates higher than the U.S. are discovering this.
Are you overlooking the fact that unvaccinated people are the ones getting sick and dying?
I'm not (because many unvaccinated people are kids under 12 and folks who can't -- for medical reasons -- get vaccinated).
I think we're all overlooking that the vaccine-only strategy will not work when there is no social incentive to get vaccinated.
People aren't encouraged to mask en masse now like they were before. It's not even mandated in 99.9 percent of the country now. People don't -- in most public settings have to prove vaccination status. You can go to ballgames, restaurants, gyms, bars, stores, -- everywhere -- and not be vaccinated or required to mask (save for public transport).
If you have the freedom to be unvaccinated and do all those things without restrictions, how are we blaming the sick and dead instead of the policymakers for creating apathy?
Politicians and the media overlook that.
