COVID-19 vaccines and older so-called conservatives
I can’t understand how older people can refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Younger people have not lived through the amazing vaccines developed during the lifetimes of us older folks. That may be some kind of excuse for not understanding how vital they are and how much suffering and death they have prevented. It’s not a very good excuse, mind you, but it’s somewhat understandable.
But older so-called “conservatives”? They’ve seen polio eliminated. They’ve seen measles, mumps, shingles, pneumonia, diphtheria, flu, &c. eliminated or reduced. Their resistance to COVID vaccines is willful and dangerous.
Don’t believe me? Maybe this quick history of vaccine development will jog your memory.
We’re talking Darwin Award material.
