I was one of the 1st to take the Moderna Covid vaccine but understand why other’s have a reluctance to take it even today. For those that believe such people are “stupid” I ask you to consider their f “valid points” (below) that these individuals ask before said judgement is cast down. I input their point of view not to suggest others not to take the vaccine but instead learn to respect all decisions. If we truly want to move the debate forward it’s best to listen and argue with facts not just name calling. Maybe then we all can find our own safe space.
(1) “TOO QUICK” –Everyone can agree this vaccine was released to the public in record times and we may not fully understand the long term consequences of taking it.
(2) HAD IT– Many Individuals who have had Covid believe they have the natural anti-bodies to fight against this sickness and therefore the vaccine might not be effective but could due more harm then good.
(3) NATURAL IMMUNITY- Individuals who have a 0 + blood type and been in communities that have had a large variant of the virus might believe they have a natural ability to fight it.
(4) FALSE PRESS- Many individuals don’t trust the press and believe they are telling the story they want you to hear. Therefore side effects and even possible deaths due to the vaccine are not reported while deaths due to the virus are exaggerated.
FOOTNOTE- Maybe the greatest counter argument against all these claims is the 2 words that is truly counter culture “Donald Trump”. For he took the vaccine enough said.
