So a guy runs in to a bar and yells, "Quick, bartender! Quick, quick! I need three shots of tequila right away!!! QUICK!" The bartender looks at the anxious man and quickly pours out three shots of tequila on the bar. The man immediately downs all three of them in a row. "Wow, you sure drank those fast", the bartenders says.
"Well, you'd do the same if you had what I have!", the man says.
"Oh my God", replied the bartender, "What do you have?"
The man says, "Seventy-five cents."

So we're just at %49.1 full vaccination now despite it being eligible for everyone over 12 for months now and it's free, easy, painless quick and mostly widely accessible.

Who is surprised? Disappointed? Yes of course! I have been disappointed by my country repeatedly, for 45 years now. Surprised, not even remotely.  Hell I planned my lock-down around the contagion of Floridian stupidity. I planned for 36 months of lock-down and I'll honestly be impressed if we've reached the necessary ~80% vaccination rate to obtain genuine herd immunity in that timeframe.

The first 50% was the easy part. Now we have to put on peer pressure like we're high school weed dealers begging our friends to buy one dime bag at time so we can afford thatused Ford Mustang. Yeah, we probably won't get that car until our first year of college, but we got to start somewhere.

Honestly it was easier selling seed-filled ditch weed to redneck jocks in the 90's, than it is to convince anyone who's not already vaccinated at this point.

Just checked Canada's number up to July 17: about 70% had received at least one dose, 80% of people above 12. 50% were fully vaccinated, 57% of people above 12. Vaccination rate seem great, 43% were fully vaccinated 2 weeks before that.

You do realize the plague rat narrative just helps drive a wedge, right?

I get it, you did your part, doing well, next to nothing and getting a shot, and are a bit sad that isn't much now seeing as most reasonable people are vaccinated and the things (doing nothing) you get to lord over people that make you feel better about them are slipping away.

You had your moment, but how about you engage in a less derogitority conversation so maybe we can whittle away at people on the fence about vaccination who don't want to have to feel that doing so puts them in your camp.

Fark them. Fark that. They've had almost a year to get the shot. If they haven't yet they never will. I have no regard for them at all. They don't care about us, they only care about pleasing a piece of shiat that will never, ever care about them, and patting each other on the back about how they're sticking it to the rest of us. They're too stupid to realize that they're only screwing themselves, and at this point I'm willing to let them have exactly what they want.

You might want to take a look at the demographics of vaccine hesitancy, and consider what large groups of people beyond trump supporters you are talking about.

Good. Bring on the vaccination passports.  Personal inconvenience is the only thing that'll convince these selfish, stupid, twits to get the shot.

No, but putting you up on a soap box doesn't help your causes as much as you like to think it does.

Yes, there are plenty of trump supporters who are antivax. There is also a sizable percentage of minorities who are not vaccinated, be it because of doubts, apathy, or outright antivaccination beliefs due to religion.

Branding everyone who isn't vaccinated yet an idiot doesn't help sway them to your cause. That is still a sizeable number of people who can be vaccinated. Lumping them in with trump supporters CERTAINLY doesn't help your cause. Saying you wish them to suffer some horrible fate because of that without considering their position outright drives them away from the message you are trying to send.

And branding everyone who isn't inspired to vote for Democrats lazy and entitled brats don't get them to vote, either.

There are lots of people who can be vaccinated. The very vast majority of them have stated that they do not plan to be vacci ayed. They by and large cannot be convinced to get vaccinated.

The same cannot be said of disillusioned voters, who absolutely would vote if someone tended to their concerns and needs. But Democrats don't want to do that.

So explain why a bunch of obstinate, loud-mouthed, anti-science assholes deserve a gentler touch than voters who have legitimate gripes about their government. And explain why it's not OK to bully the first group because it doesn't work, but it's OK to bully the second even though that's never worked.

All you assholes need to do is provide for your constituents and they'll vote for you. You're literally being nicer to conservative wackjobs than you are to progressives. You're showing your true colors, asshole.

My wife is a chef at a local restaurant and wears a mask at all times. When she goes to the feontz house customers tell her to take her mask off. She refuses every time and explains to them that they are going to get it. Reminds them that they should be glad that she is taking precautions by wearing a mask when making their food. They don't get it and never will. I doubt they are vaccinated since the mask drives them crazy. Hicks.

Pretty much everything in the states is governed by the states themselves, so a national average is going to reflect Derpistan as well as places where actual smart people live.    Our CDC is different from HSE in that it has very little authority nationally.   State governors are the ones that really drive policy.
