A very significant portion of Americans do not intend to get the Covid-19 vaccination. Their stupid and selfish decisions will unnecessarily prolong the pandemic, give the virus more opportunities to mutate into a more dangerous form and keep herd immunity from being ever being achieved.
One group stands out in this crowd of idiots – White Evangelical Protestants of whom 45% plan to “Just say No” to vaccination. These WEPs have been Trump’s greatest supporters and are now the protectors of his legacy of death. 555,000 and counting.
As a country we need to motivate such people to do the right thing. Since they will not follow the science and are not open to persuasion, we need to have “proof of vaccination” as a requirement for air travel, border crossings, public-facing work like teaching, etc. Maybe that will help them see the light?
