    (CNN)The Covid-19 vaccine has become so polarizing that some people in Missouri are getting inoculated in secret for fear of backlash from their friends and family who oppose vaccination, a doctor told CNN on Wednesday.
    Some people in Missouri are getting vaccinated in secret to avoid backlash from loved ones, doctor says - CNN

    Fortunately, vaccination facilities are finding ways to protect the identities of those who realize the vaccine can save their lives, but fear retaliation from families or associates. Who would have thought America would have come to this?

    Who would have thought that people would be afraid for their livelihoods and their lives and their children, because vaccine tyrants spin propaganda and openly coerce and discriminate against them.

    In Missouri, at least, public health agencies are providing people with privacy so that the tyrants won't even know these people were vaccinated.

    It's sad that decent people have to fear retaliation for protecting themselves and their families.

    Or they just tell the truth about biology and we are safer for it. I'm pretty sure you're not interested in facts but still, people who get vaccinated are not dying, people who don't get vaccinated can die and do quite often. It's really that simple.

    If you want to spread your diseased sputum around your own house that's one thing but it's wrong to infect other people's families with your virus-laden mucus breath.

    What propaganda do you believe? Because it's noting that has anything to do with biology or science in general really. Can you share any statistics that show the vaccine is unsafe? Did you just hear something from somebody or do you read peer-reviewed articles in any scientific journals? You could convince me if you have some verified information.

    For those people threatening to retaliate against others who get vaccinated, it's not about facts. They've been indoctrinated to the point that there's no amount of evidence that would change their minds.

    Those poor souls! If they need advice on how to cope with oppression, they can ask us Skeptics how we deal with all the vitriol and slander we receive for holding a contrary view.

    Uh…vaccinated people are getting re-infected and are surreptitiously spreading it too. But they’re vaccinated so that somehow makes it a better consequent death for their victims?

    Actually it’s not even about reality. This whole concept is pure invention, IMO.

    I live in Texas and do not know ONE soul, including meself, who is avoiding vaxxed relatives. Several of mine were vaxxed early on due to working in nursing or in order to visit nursing homes.

    They, to their credit, have not ONCE shamed me for avoiding the jabs (I am Covid-recovered, don’t need them for the original or the variants). They don’t agree with me, per se, but they don’t shame. God bless family!

    It's not a topic I take part in with anyone I don't know for exactly the same reasons - fear of retaliation, recrimination, etc.

    No, but unless they get the Shingrix shots, they could be up for shingles. ;)

    (Which is also a topic I don't bring up in mixed company)

    Really? WHere is this happening? How often is this happening? Share the statistics you have been looking at so I can learn the truth

    I don't doubt the veracity of the report, that some people are in fact "askeert" of backlash - but c'mon - how many such people are there really that are so afraid of what their friends and "loved ones" think that they're getting vaccinated IN SECRET to avoid recrimination? And goodness, why IN SECRET? Are their friends and "loved ones" camped out at the vaccination spots taking note of who is getting the shot?

    That sounds so utterly far-fetched as to be nothing but pure propaganda.

    Reason #236 to be skeptical of the mob's insistence EVERYONE get vaccinated.

    We're all entitled to our own views. We aren't entitled to insist that no one criticize them. That's not what these people fear. The whole thing has become so politicized on the far right, that they are afraid of what will happen if people find out that they got vaccinated.

    Nor are we entitled to insist that everyone agree with them.

    And this has precisely ZIP to do with "right" or "left."

    I didn't say that, did I?

    What I DID say was in reference to how the story was being used.
