If You Refuse The Covid19 Vaccine

Consult Your Doctor Before Beginning ANY Diet


What are your thoughts on the Alabama doctor's story on treating unvaccinated patients that are dying of Covid-19 and consoling their families afterwards?

This a chilling, heart wrenching story for everyone involved. Dr. Brytney Cobia starts her story with “One of the last things they do before they’re intubated is beg me for the vaccine…I hold their hand and tell them that I’m sorry, but it’s too late.”
It doesn't have to be this way. Vaccines save lives, they are safe, free, and they are for everyone. But if people don’t even trust their primary doctor, what’s the use? How can you have empathy for anti-vaxxers and COVID-19 deniers dying? It’s hard to feel a modicum of pity to be honest.

Dr Cobia continued with this:

"A few days later when I call time of death,"
continued Cobia on Facebook, "I hug their family
members and I tell them the best way to honor
their loved one is to go get vaccinated and
encourage everyone they know to do the same."
"They cry. And tell me they didn't know. They
thought it was a hoax. They thought it was
political. They thought because they had a certain
blood type or a certain skin color they wouldn't get
as sick. They thought it was 'just the flu'. But they
were wrong. And they wish they could go back.
But they can't. So they thank me and they go get
the vaccine. And I go back to my office write their
death note, and say a small prayer that this loss

I think the doctor is giving an honest account of what she’s saying. What I don’t believe are the excuses people are giving. I believe they knew the consequences of their inaction. No one is this miserably inadequate and uninformed. It’s deliberate, but if they are, this society is seriously broken.

If I refuse the "vaccine", why is that something bad? I am a free human being.

Well, lets test your hypothesis on some related scenarios. Firstly:
If I refuse to “call an ambulance for a seriously injured person I walk past on the street and instead allow them to bleed to death”, why is that something bad? I am a free human being. Yes, you are a free person, but most people would still say that refusing to go to the minor effort of dialling a number on your phone to save someone life would make you a bad person.

Or what about:

If I refuse to "stop walking forward when I come to a sheer cliff", why is that something bad? I am a free human being. Yes, you are a free person, but if you do this you’ll also soon be a free dead person. Doesn’t sound too bright.
Taking the covid vaccine will magically solve both the above problems. It will stop you from dying unnecessarily and it will also stop you passing the virus on and killing others through your inaction. So, free as you may be, refusing to take the vaccine will make you a bad person and will make you a pretty dumb one as well.
It is a little discouraging to hear the number of people that consider having any concern for other people as some sort of crazy foreign concept and are prepared to parrot an assortment of anti-vax misinformation to support their lack of concern. So below are a few clarifications and statements that I believe are beyond any reasonable doubt. I think the answer to most comments are here and so I won’t personally respond to any more comment as it is becoming too time consuming and is frankly depressing.
Most adults would benefit from the vaccine. There are a small number of people with genuine medical reasons for not getting it. It is of course perfectly reasonable that these people chose not to get vaccinated. However, there are few people in this category compared to the very much larger number of people who say they will refuse the vaccine.
The vaccine will substantially reduce your odds of being infected (not by 100% but by 70–90%).
The vaccine will significantly reduce your risk of serious illness and death
The vaccine will significantly reduce the likelihood of you infecting others and thus leading to potential severe infection in others.
If a reasonably high number of people refuse the vaccine (for example 30% of adults) then this will lead to a far higher rate of circulation of the disease, far higher infections and far higher rates of death. This is not a scare story, it is a clear and certain medical fact.
The larger the number of people infected the larger the likelihood of new variants arising which may be more likely to re-infect those that had the original strain and those that have been vaccinated.

Refusing the vaccine means that you will contribute to increasing this risk.

Should vaccination be legally required?
Originally Answered: Should people be forced by law to be vaccinated?

The far / idealistic right should get this (because the Amercian right has fallen into such mental retardation that they simultaneously support a president who was vaccinated but who continuously undermined efforts to get people vaccinated.) Had the previous President, after losing, said, “I’m a patriot and I love the US too much to watch good people die. Regardless of who the president is, I Donald J. Trump, a Christian (snort!) implore you to go get vaccinated. Save yourself, your family from dying. Anti-vaccination is anti-American. Go get vaccinated.”
Did that happen? No? Wow. So proud of the guy who’s “Making America Great Again”. We wouldn’t even NEED this conversation if Trump reflected half the values of the religion he pretends to hold. This is SO idiotic and childish. It’s essentially, “You can’t make me,” which is apropos given the mental capacity of these idiots.
Let’s use a side example that Trump and hell, the entire American military establishment loves. Nukes. Why don’t we “play fair” and let the Iranians and North Koreans get nukes? Why? Because children and idiots whine about “fair” when there is an existential threat to LITERALLY MILLIONS. Fair and just mean nothing when faced with nukes or a pandemic or war or a natural disaster. We have the ability TO force Americans to pick up guns and kill other people, so it’s not unreasonable that we have the power to force you to stop a pandemic from mutating. (Or are the proud right-wing anti-vaxxers going to conceded that we shouldn’t force anybody to do anything they don’t want or, is this one of those, “I just want to win and I hate them yukky lefties” kind of thing?).
When it comes to vaccines, I think that if you refuse to get one, you should automatically be terminated from your employment and banned from leaving the city in which you live until you get one. Stay unemployed (and legally unqualified to accept any unemployment benefits) and stay in your village of idiots.
