VACCINES: Get on board

| May 7, 2021 1:00 AM

Most of us who have been vaccinated are trying to understand the reluctance of people to get their COVID shot. Don’t we all want to get back to some resemblance of normality in this country?

We certainly want to eat at our favorite restaurant and shop like a normal human being. One hundred million people have already done the right thing to get their vaccination. Why all the reluctance to stop this pandemic?

Do you want this virus to kill more Americans? Is it all about your rights and personal choice? Do I have any rights when it comes to you not being vaccinated?

I am just not smart enough to follow the logic and not doing the right thing for all of us. Doesn’t it make sense to follow the CDC guidelines and get the damn shot? We are not out of the woods yet. 50,000 Americans are still getting COVID and yet people refuse to wear masks or get vaccinated. It makes no sense.

We will not reach 70% herd immunity by refusing to do what is right. It is not about politics whether you are Republican or Democrat. States are now dangling incentives to get the shot. Really? What does it take? Money? Food? Tax breaks? Science is right. They know how to stop this pandemic. Be smart and get your shot.
