One thing I dont like about the gov and vax is the split personality.Great post and I agree with almost all of it contents.
If more people would express their opinion in a way like you did with this post and less with reactions like "fuck you fucking conspiracy redneck", then some people would probably reconsider their decisions.
But nethertheless there are many unvaccinated people, who also take enormous care for others for exactly this reason (being unvaccinated). Even here the world is not always black or white.
And to make it clear what my personal position is: I think a mandatory vaccination for people 60+ or people with pre-conditions would fix almost all of the problems we have right now.
You must take into account that the ~70% are for the whole population and not only people for which the vaccine is approved. A not exactly small percentage can therefore not get vaccinated at all right now.
Where did I say this?
Of course vaccination decreases the risk for spreading the virus. At least for most people for a few months.
Do you think a person at risk cares if a person vaccinated five months ago is only 50-95% contagious and that the personat risk is therefor less careful? And do you also think that unvaccinated people generally don't give a shit whether they endanger others or not? Is it even possible that they might even be more careful than vaccinated people?
On one hand, gov is trying to push for vaxxes as much as possible, safety protocols, spacing out etc....
BUT then they got loopholes like "if youre super religious, you are exempt". What kind of cop out is that? Now if it's someone who has a medical condition that's different. You dont want to force a vax on someone who might die from it. But there's no good reason for everyone to be getting vaxxed and following directions, but then some guy says he's exempt because some holy book or scripture he got from a priest says vaxxes dont apply.
And then there's the whole angle regarding stadiums. Restaurants, stores, theatres etc...can have full lockdown or partial lockdown. But then you got stadiums and arenas with people sardined at half capacity which can still be 10,000 people + workers. Makes zero sense.
