Have you cut ties with your unvaccinated friends?

    I've tried to encourage my brother to get vaccinated so we can spend more time together.

    A couple family members are unvaccinated. I'm vaccinated so I don't worry about it.

    Haven't cut ties with my vaccinated friends and family and don't ask anyone else. It's none of my business.

    I have family that feed on lies, so no I'm just hoping we get lucky. It's a crying shame and it would break my heart, but that is the way of deception and destruction. The father of lies, and all that, right here in our living rooms. Thanks Christians. :(

    I have no unvaccinated friends at this point.

    Not too many vaccinated friends, either; I need to get out more.

    At this stage, the Covid vaccine isn't at that level of issue for me. If we get to the point where the virus is spreading through my local community, and my daughter is still too young to be vaccinated, I might begin to feel that it is that level of issue.

    I find it ridiculous, this whole fear-based business. I don't personally know ANYONE who even nearly died of Covid, but here we have a 'vaccination' of new derivation that (as best as my ignorance knows how to put it) messes with your RNA which deals with your DNA, something that no other mass available vaccine has done before, and it is become a politically correct matter, pushed by those I have never trusted, even threatened to be forced, and FOR WHAT? A 99.7% survivable virus??? And it's even less for the young; for them it's safer than driving to get the vaccination!

    The emperor has no clothes.

    Only unvaccinated ones I am aware of are the kids. As in under 18. I expect they will be vaccinated as soon as the vaccines are aproved for their age. I'm not staying away from them in the meantime.

    I saw this earlier today while browsing comments below an article:

    Pro-vaxx Person: Why are you being so selfish?

    Normal Person: How am I being selfish?

    Pro-vaxx Person: Because if you get Covid you can pass it on to me.

    Normal Person: But you've been vaccinated.

    Pro-vaxx Person: Yeah, but I can still get it.

    Normal Person: So if I get vaccinated I can still get it too.

    Pro-vaxx Person: Yeah, but you should still get it cos then you won't pass it on to me.

    Normal Person: But if I get vaccinated I can still get it and pass it on to you.

    Pro-vaxx Person: Yeah, but you should still do it.

    Normal Person: But you can catch it off me whether I've been vaccinated or not.

    Pro-vaxx Person: Yeah, but you should still get vaccinated.

    Normal Person: But why?

    Pro-vaxx Person: Cos it's the right thing to do.

    Normal Person: Who says?

    Pro-vaxx Person: The people that make it.

    Pro-vaxx Person: That's not the stupidest idea you've ever had, but at least you're consistent.

    I get the feeling like something was lost in translation.

    The real reason to get the vaccine is because it greatly reduces the relative risk of serious infection and transmission. The more people who don't get the vaccine are simply ensuring the virus is going to stick around longer (and keep mutating to boot).

    I keep wondering what things would have looked like for the U.S. if everyone actually took the pandemic seriously.

    I just found out that a friend's daughter has contracted the virus, and my friend is caring for her (naturally), so now the whole family is self-isolating. I offered to send her meals and/or groceries via delivery apps now that she can't go anywhere, but I imagine I won't be seeing her in person for quite a while.

    Thankfully that's the only person I know who has gotten it or lives with someone who has gotten it. Still, with the Delta variant now making up the majority of US infections, and the lowered protection against it offered by the vaccines currently available to us, I don't think anything is lost to me personally by being very careful. I really do want to visit my family and friends back home soon, but almost all my family and closest friends have children who are too young to be vaccinated, so we're all in agreement that now is not the time. I check in with periodic phone calls in the meantime. Obviously it isn't ideal, but nothing about living through a global pandemic is.

    Do you wear a seatbelt when you drive? Does your car have airbags? Side-impact beams? Anti-lock breaks?
