They. Need to stop forcing people to get the jabs. It doesn't do any good. My cousin almost died.

jabs are the only way out of this mess. i can't understand people refusing it because they believe daft anti vaxxers on social media rather than listening to the scientists.

Well said KP. Some people believe everything they see posted on Facebook.
There are many similar social media platforms pedalling false and misleading information.

Sorry to hear about your cousin, Erin, hope they’ve fully recovered.

All vaccines carry a risk - for people with certain conditions some are ruled out completely - but if you can have it the Covid vaccination seems to be the best option. I’m risking it anyway.

You will not persuade the anti-vaxers by reason, logic or argument. No more than you will persuade people out of their religious beliefs by such means.

They are a cult, and adopt these beliefs as part of their self identity, and are resistant to challenge. Just like the Q-Anon, ultra-right, and similar with whom they considerably overlap.

Unless we address the question concerning why people are embracing such a self identity, they will continue to crop up and undermine our well being in general.

There maybe a few who have had an adverse reaction to the covid jab but far more have suffered and died because the didn't have it.
Anti vaxers are a dangerous group,in my opinion.
On the other hand, some religious groups may be dangerous but by no means all.

How on earth do the anti vaxers think that polio, diphtheria,etc got wiped out, they should be damn thankful for those that work tirelessly to keep us all safe.

I find it rather hypocritical that some people refuse to be jabbed but will happily have jabs that are required to go on holiday in tropical countries.
