Are there any semi accurate stats about % of left & right who are vaccinated? Just curious to see since I could easily imagine that there are more left unvaccinated than right due to demographic distrust of the vaccine.
I have a black friend who says the same thing. He says any of them under 40 isn’t getting but the older ones are flocking to it. Pretty networked family so I believe his assessment. He surprised me the other day saying his whole family is hoping Trump comes back. Maybe this is the thing that ends the divide. I hope so.
I’m fine with pro-choice; don’t want it, don’t get it.
The only reason I’d like WHATEVER group isn’t getting vaccinated to get it is that I believe in and mostly understand the biology of disease mutations. If some fucks want to risk their lives by not getting the vaccine, that’s fine with me, but the more unvaccinated, the higher the chance of COVID (or any disease) to spread, and the higher the chance of a mutation which puts us back to square one, or worse.
It’s like the inverse of drugs. I’ve never done drugs, but I don’t care if others do them - that’s their choice. However, if you get blasted and then drive or get violent, then fuck you. Not getting vaccinated isn’t as bad, but it still increases that risk of doing harm to others.
I can only do so much. Masks aren’t to protect you, they are to protect others. It’s an assumption, but I imagine the Venn diagram of those that that refuse the vaccine and also refuse to wear a mask are pretty close to a perfect overlap.
I still follow basic guidance and do things to reduce contact overall. It hasn’t changed my life substantially (pick up / deliver groceries in stead of go to the store regularly, I have a great home gym, I watch movies at home, etc.).
