Drives me nuts that now it’s ok

for reporters, friends, family to be all up in each other’s business about their health. That is strictly up to me and my Doc.

This breakout is one of the things I hate about this whole past year. Before, you would hardly ever, IF ever ask someone about their “health status”. It’s absolutely absurd and kudos to Bradley Beal

He's fine, you're absolutely correct. Why bother.

He's like a kid, not going to die, not going to need a hospital bed.

BUT.....say his dad is like minded. He gives it to dad. Dad takes up a hospital bed. Say his kids get it, they go to school, and some teacher, proudly unvaxxed, gets it, and does take up a hospital bed. All fine. UNTIL, there are no hospital beds left. Then the guy in a car wreck, welding accident, heart attack, whatever needs an ICU and guess what? SOL. So yeah, your individual freedom not to get a vaccine is absolutely fine if you live in a bubble. But when your unvaccinated butt takes up an ICU bed, 3 ICU nurses, a vent, and resources, there comes a point that kills OTHER PEOPLE WHO DON'T EVEN HAVE COVID.

Last year's numbers are right around 130,000. Take excess deaths, subtract covid deaths, and there's still a large difference. Any guesses who those people are? And here you are a doctor in Lexington, SC, Boise, Idaho, or Jacksonville, FL. You have a 16yo kid, just got his license, and he's in a horrible wreck. He is rushed to emergency surgery (if you can find a doc and an anesthesiologist) and he then needs an ICU bed. Well, you're full. Then the hospital has to decide to pull staff and doctors away from covid cases (they die) to save the innocent people who were hurt in a car wreck? Who dies? Who gets the least care? When Desantis, and others like him say vaccines are a personal choice, and wearing a mask is a personal choice, and it has no impact on others, he's wrong. And he knows that. You have to have a pretty myopic view of the world to deny it.

Tough times create strong men.
Strong men create easy times.

DeSantis and McMaster's answers go something like this

"Well, why did you let yourself get sick? You should have taken better care of yourself?"

"Why did you let yourself get hit by a truck?"

"Why didn't you know to stay out of the hospital when it is obviously so busy and overrun with covid patients?"

A better way for them to put it: "Why would you live in a state run by such myopic idiots?"

and of his health isn’t going to the ICU (if you believe the odds) so why get the vaccine? Still can get it, still can transmit it….still in rare cases could die. Why get it?
