I respect anyone who chooses not to vax. It would be nice if they recognized that they feel safe to do that is because of those that do.
Not necessarily. I live in a part of the country where there are a lot of folks who will not get the vaccine and it has nothing to do with the fact that they feel safe because others will protect them. It is how the very the medical community in general and how they feel the pandemic has been blown out of proportion (rightly/wrongly) in terms of how contagious it is, whether people can be reinfected etc. Especially the younger population has either been infected or known someone who has and hasn't viewed it as that bad. They would rather take their chances. It doesn't have to do with whether you have gotten a shot. They would feel the same if the vaccinations were note available.
