I like this story because of the pithy phrase in the title, “pandemic of [the] unvaccinated.” The phrase is sort of a Rorschach test in that it reveals the inner thoughts and assumptions of those who respond to it.
My own initial response was to wonder, When was Covid-19 not a pandemic of the unvaccinated? Since there were no vaccines when the pandemic started one could say Covid-19 has always been a pandemic of the unvaccinated; in that sense, nothing has changed.
Of course, vaccines have been created since the pandemic began and about half the population has taken them. These are important developments which have changed the world, but they don’t give new meaning to this unusual group of words.
Another possible response is to see guilt in the unvaccinated, as if ownership of the pandemic has shifted recently from all of us to just the unvaccinated. To my mind, this response might be psychologically symptomatic. It isn’t normal to assign guilt to human beings when natural disasters occur.
A final possible response is to exploit the propaganda value of the phrase, as the story in which it occurs clearly does.
