We are a nation of idiots, apparently:
- More than five million people , or nearly eight per cent who received first COVID-19 shot have skipped out on their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines
- Some people have opted out of second dose because they believe they’re protected with a single shot while others are fearful of the flulike side effects
- In addition, Vaccine providers have been forced to cancel second-dose appointments because they keep running out of supply
- Meanwhile, some states are also finding that people aren’t interested in getting the shots and are having to turn down vaccine deliveries altogether
To some degree I understand the denialism of the Q-spiracy and anti-vaxxers (at least they are consistently stupid), but I do NOT understand people who got the first shot and then said, “Naw, I’m good.”
I’m looking forward to being vaccinated someday, and I’m fine with wearing a mask (even AFTER I’m vaccinated) and I will be delighted to have an excuse to keep my distance from “people with whom I share nothing except the right to trial by jury,” as Fran Lebowitz once said.
