It is probably time for unvaccinated people to be asked/told they are unwelcome. Those medically advised to not vaccinate can be accommodated, and lets get the next younger group vaccinated. Trump rightfully can be proud of his administrations enabling vaccine development to happen and get funded so quickly. He needs to go on a tour persuading his admirers to get vaccinated. That would help de-politicalize this whole issue.
Trump announced he was vaccinated. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trumps ... in-january
Honestly, the press is so hostile to him, he can do no right, so best for him to lie low.
What is going unsaid is the high concentration in urban centers of unvaccinated.https://dig.abclocal.go.com/kabc/ca-vac ... p_map.html
The politicizing of this health campaign is a negative for everyone. Honestly, Every Red voter I know is vaccinated and the unvaccinated are Blue voters, so something isn't lining up with the press. More scary, I know many households where everyone is unvaccinated. That means when (not if) Delta enters the house, everyone gets it and spreads it and they live in those less vaccinated areas. With Ro of 5+, Delta will almost ignore the vaccinated and rip through unvaccinated areas.
The doctors I know are exiting the anger stage of why people are unvaccinated. I think many of the efforts to vaccinate are bargaining. I hear reports that the few vaccinated in the hospital are getting more attention, not by policy, the unvaccinated are... just getting what they asked for So far every vaccinated in the hospital is someone who caught it from an unvaccinated house mate (high exposure guaranteed) that I have anecdotally heard about. So far, only cancer and kidney patients are not recovering quickly (they are on meds dooming them).
The media playing up one group as bad not vaccinating and one as victims sends a message that hardened the stance of both groups. At work they send an ambulance with vaccine once a month with a team of jabbers. That sort of helps (enough get vaccinated to justify the effort, but not enough to change much).
Best to not mention politics. Best to not mention a politician as that is a turn off to the other side of the isle.
Allow me to vaccinate my younger child.
Encourage boosters, I think they are needed.
10 months without TV. The best decision of my life.
