I'm sorry, but not getting the vaccine is ignorant w/ that much on the line


Not to get into an internet flame war, but in almost 30 years as a practicing physician and microbiologist, I've heard all of the excuses of why people don't want a vaccine. None has EVER been supported by a scintilla of science. But, hey, as they say in Vegas, "Ya places yer bet and ya takes yer chances".

These kids routinely take supplements that haven't one iota of credibility, but we're supposed to be OK with their refusal of a product with true benefit not just for them but society as well? Nope. Elliot Avent owns this one. He "doesn't want to play politics". Sorry, vaccines aren't political, refusal is.

As for Rahm, he had plenty of chance to vaccinate sooner but refused. He's out a likely $1.7M for having to drop out. He at least redeemed himself financially at the US Open. However, he put many people at risk, not the least of whom was his infant son.

True, death for younger folks is lower with COVID than for us who are pleasingly plump over 50. That said, we vaccinate for rarer diseases routinely (meningococcal meningitis), that though while uncommon, can have devastating consequences. They should have known better.
