I used to work with a bloke who turned out to be anti vax.Saw a medical article posted online (paywalled so I could only read the opening) saying that we shouldn’t think about COVID as becoming like the flu. After widespread vaccination it will be like measles or whooping cough - won’t affect the vaccinated badly but the unvaccinated will see outbreaks that continue to be terrible. (And honestly for a person my age it’s extraordinary to think that anti-vaccination views and actions are keeping those awful diseases alive and preventing what could and should have been elimination.)
Spot on. It reminds me of arguing with fundamentalist Christians when they use the bible as a primary source of "evidence". You can't argue logic with someone that thinks a religious text is equivalent to CCTV footage or a controlled science experiment. Logic can't win a battle where both teams aren't fighting with the same ruleset.Logic cannot fight this fight. Evidence cannot fight this fight, confirmation bias is fully rooted within these people to the point that in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence (like the eradication of small pox) means nothing because a non peer reviewed article spouted by someone on the net means more.
Sorry, mine's already committed to this very worthy cause
Nah the best suggestion I’ve heard for administering the vaccine is to put it in beer and other booze products and reopen pubs and turn them into oral vaccine stations. Win, win, winIf only we had a spray-on vaccination option. The coppers could have pepper spray in one hand and vaccine spray in the other...
