Hospitals all over the country put out numbers showing that a small fraction of their patients and deaths were among the vaccinated. Some folks choose to believe that all of the medical professionals in the country were working in consort to create a massive conspiracy to get people vaccinated. Whatever. As I stated in my other post, 13 of 14 COVID deaths with people I knew personally occurred in the unvaccinated, and the one who was vaccinated was in arguably the most at-risk group that exists. Now, that being said, I never cared for Fauci. I think he’s crooked, and I think he did shady stuff to try and push vaccinations. I was always for people having the choice, and was always against vax mandates. I got the original vaccine, but when the new strains of COVID became milder I chose not to get any boosters. I eventually became sick with COVID and built up natural immunity. Hopefully it’ll last awhile. Vaccines have become increasingly less effective over time as the virus has mutated. That isn’t proof that they didn’t help. The numbers say they did, whether you choose to believe them or not. The fact that anti-vaxxers wave around decreased success or vaccines as the virus has mutated is a non-issue for me. Your “gotcha” moment doesn’t prove to me that I was originally wrong, and I still feel the same way about a lot of the things I said two years ago. COVID was a serious issue for a couple years, and I still believe that vaccines saved many lives. I still don’t believe the silly conspiracy theories about the vaccines being more dangerous than the illness itself. And I still get annoyed that vax-deniers pretend that they don’t understand math when you point out that a certain amount of people in an age-group dies every week whether they’ve recently been vaccinated or not, so you’re going to to have literally thousands of coincidental deaths. @SmashMouth to answer your question.
