most people who refuse the vaccine look at it as "why put an experimental treatment into your body for a virus that has a 99% survival rate". (yes, even with FDA approval, it is still experimental, no one actually knows the long term effects.) and on top of that you now have articles (on mainstream media sites such as MSN), where scientists are actually now stating, by the numbers, that vaccinated cross overs are more severe and higher death rates than the non-vaxed. israel is having the same wave and numbers we are seeing, and that country is 94% vaxed. those numbers cant be considered crossover's. the question arises "is the vax working on the variants. on one hand they are saying how bad it is and yet on the other they are firing doctors and nurses for refusing the vax, is that really smart in the middle of a pandemic when they are nedded most?... weve been in this for over a year now and have done very little to prepare for this wave. so much could have been changed and new standards set in the medical field but everything remained the same and here we are again unprepared. it boils down to some people will take an experimental drug for anything and some dont see 99% survival as being worth the possible side effects... it should be a personal choice. bring up things like refusing medical care or whos going to pay for it is nonsince. ppl smoke, that kills you, ppl drink, that kills you, should anyone with cancer be refused med care ? should any "habit"or lifestyle be refused care? thats a slippery slope to go down now isnt it?.. these other things WILL kill you at some point, this virus, probably not. but a 99% survival rate dont make headlines........ sorry if ive offended anyone with this view.
