thank you, i appreciate that a lot, and i’m sorry that it wasn’t clear that i was not @ing anyone here.
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.
A few days later when I call time of death, 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 they 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.
I hope we will see more safe covid treatment options developed and approved during this year:
we need to flatten the curve.
As of today, over 4.16 million people have died globally from COVID-19. These are just recorded deaths; the number is probably much higher when you take into account less developed or more secretive countries where polls aren’t or won’t be taken.
The article above states that only a thousand or so have died after getting the vaccine, and it also mentions that most of these cases aren’t even because of the vaccine itself.
The number of deaths due to traffic accidents in 2018 was 39,888. That’s only in the USA. The total number globally was closer to 1,350,000 (in 2016). Compare that to the 1000 vaccine deaths of people with underlying conditions. You have a much, much higher chance of dying from driving your car or even just crossing the street.
So, please be respectful of others, do the right thing, be a sensible human being and just get the vaccine.
I’m closing this thread to avoid further drama. Please be respectful to other people’s choices.
