A nice “Bite me!” Comment of the Day by Demeter on the post, “The Ethics Of The Government’s Planned Door-To-Door Vaccination Campaign”:
I have gotten to date: a phone call, numerous post cards, and a text message, along with emails from my insurance company and… of course, FB announcements. If people are unaware of vaccines, their purpose, safety, etc… a knock on the door likely will not matter. Actually, it makes me want to dig in my heels to NOT do this.
I feel like there’s medical discrimination at play. Never have I ever been convinced to “do the right thing” with lotteries, scholarships for kids, phone calls asking me to schedule an appointment, a postcard, and now door to door. Umm, Fuck you. No.
I was considering it. Now “they” can leave me alone or see me in a courtroom. Translation: You would be better off shutting your stupid mouths and letting me work through the information, IN MY OWN TIME. If I die, I die. It’s my choice. You’re vaccinated so what do you care what I do? Or are they saying they don’t work as claimed? Pick one people, you can’t have both.
Side note: our history is full of amazing and epic scientific breakthroughs of things that turned out not to be safe, that we thought were, and and ended up killing thousands or more. Tell you what, Biden: Go back to the lab (you have a cancer cure so this should be simple!), create an airborne vaccine—I’m sure nothing could possibly go wrong—and you’d get your wish to have everyone vaccinated for the greater good.
And not that you care, but I haven’t gotten the vaccine because it’s a 120 mile round-trip to the nearest vaccination site. My husband hasn’t because the flu shot makes him super sick and he doesn’t want to be sick. My daughters won’t because they’re concerned about long term unknown (as yet) consequences.
It has NOTHING to do with politics, well… it does now because they’re being pushy.
