You had a chance to get vaccinated. You chose not to. Now you think you should take up a bed in a hospital. NO! Send COVID patients home.

Drink some bleach or shine a light where the sun doesn't shine to get better.

I hate it that my anger at the anti-vaxxers absurdly stupid refusal to get vaccinated is usurping my usual empathy over human suffering. I wish I could deny the "We Told You Farkin' So!" feeling whenever I read about yet another anti-vaxxer's hospitalization and/or death from Covid.

How about you set up tent hospitals for the unvaccinated. Then staff them with experts in Facebook and FoxNews ways to treat this ordinary flu.

I've turned it into a hopeful moment, a bit of rest for most of us constantly trying to undo brainwashing. Some will die, some me will emerge still brainwashed, but a non-trivial number will have an epiphany that they've been lied to, and it's that third group that becomes powerful in disproportionately positive ways.

Is it really "usurping" when you obviously have more empathy for the healthcare workers getting traumatized (yet again) and for the people who can't get vaccinated?

In September when all major vaccines are fully FDA approved, hospitals and insurance companies should announce that anti Vaxxers have 30 days to get their shiat together, or anyone not vaccinated will be stuck with the full cost of their care, should they end up sick enough to warrant hospitalization.

Of course, the "it's not fully approved so I'm not taking it" idiots will just move the goalposts and invent some new reason.

Nah, Delta is on the rise there, too. Give it another week or two and they'll start turning red. They did a great job of crushing the earlier variants so it's taking them a little longer to get the numbers up, but they are increasing.

Yeah, and once schools start back up in the NE over the next ~3 weeks, things are going to get even more interesting.  Plus colleges.

Actually I don't know why they didn't do that from the very beginning because they were definitely trying to tell you to stay home from the get-go but they didn't want to say it directly they really have always said indirectly that you're better off staying home are you going to die because you caught covid or you're going to die because there's nothing they can do for you when you have covid and if you show up the hospital all you're doing is killing health professionals so I don't know why don't they just cut to the chase if you suspect you have covid you call a phone number they send you a test kit you send it back and if you're positive they send you a bag of farking morphine why do we farking complicate everything

I'll try to explain this in a way you can hopefully understand. We need to mandate masks because the honor system didn't work. Sure, there's a chance a vaccinated person can spread COVID but in truth a mask mandate is needed because there's no quick and easy way to tell which of us is vaccinated.

The reason we want a mask mandate is because it's going to help protect those that cannot be vaccinated (kids under 12) and those among us with weakened immune systems.

Again, in a perfect world you could just ask people to all wear masks regardless of vaccination status and people would do it out of the kindness of their hearts. What I hope we've all learned is that our communities are filled with liars and people completely and totally uninterested in helping to protect those that need it the most.

Therefore, mandate.

I am fully vaccinated since April. There are still breakthrough cases with people who are vaccinated. The delta variant is more deadly, and can spread easier compared to the original. That means there are more breakthrough cases, even if that is low. Those breakthrough cases can still spread the virus to others. Some of those cases do end up in the hospital, but thankfully that is a very very low percentage. The virus can still mutate, and probably will thanks to antivax nut jobs. Don't forget there are some people have a legitimate reason to not get the vaccine, and those people are going to suffer thanks to antivax assholes, and selfish assholes like yourself.

I know you are being facetious, but in a serious note, if anyone thinks I'm willing to sacrifice the environment because your stupid face couldn't be assed to get 2 farking shots, well, you are sorely mistaken.

If the environmentalists find a damned lethally, infectious fungus that will go extinct if you don't take the vaccine at this point, guess whose side I'm taking, you farking moron.

Yeah, my work just suddenly sent out a e-mail informing us to come back into the office part-time in mid-September, however we will have to mask and not interact with each other while in the office to prevent transmission, so there's no point in actually going back to work.

I work for the ontario provincial gov so this all political theater because there's a federal election dropping soon and next year the province will head to the polls.

It's ridiculous, we've been working from home for about 1.5 years and have been able to hit our deadlines and get shiat done.

I'm currently pregnant and I'm refusing to go in, I'm talking to my doctor about getting a medical exemption this week. I've been avoiding telling my work I'm pregnant for as long as possible so it won't hurt my chances of getting my contract converted to permanent but this is forcing my hand.

We need to mandate vaccines. Soldiers with rifles backing up the nurses going door to door to check. The honor system doesn't work when a large chunk of the population is Deplorable.

I argued for shooting a couple of plague rats in every town as a show of force early on. If we say that would cost 40000 lives but result in 95% vaccination rates, it would have paid for itself by now. When the deaths hit 1500-2000 cases a day again, my plan would pay for itself in less than a month.

There's a lot of unknowns right now and I think being cautious is a smart move. I think as Delta continues to rip through the South and Mid West like a buzzsaw, it very well may influence policy and protocols elsewhere.

It would be kinda nice if we didn't have to touch the hot stove to learn it's going to hurt, but maybe *this time* things will be different as we head into 2022.
