Y'all remember polio? No? Cuz they lined up all those kids at school like a big gov overlord and gave every kid a big ass shot in the arm. Kinda creepy? Maybe, but Context matters. If we are fighting a disease as a group, as a society, then lining up for shots makes sense. We've done it before. It worked and now thousands of kids don't have to live their lives in wheelchairs or worse.
I get that we are a tough group, but viruses don't care how tough you are on the wrestling message board boyos. There's a time and a place for toughness. Like, be tough versus your opponent, not towards the ref. How is that so hard to understand here? We need to be smart in this situation, not tough guys.
Yes the vaccine is new. So is the disease. The quickness of the rollout has everything to do with cutting red tape and having multiple companies chasing a freaking golden goose of a vaccine.
Be safe and if you aren't worried about yourself, then try to think of the larger community and the benefits that your vaccination will provide to the whole. Instead of being a primo incubator for covid, you can be a dead end for the virus. Enough dead ends and we win.
Asking college kids to get vaccinated is nothing new. We already do. You're cramming kids in dorms where everything is close contact. Same with the army. They don't want weak links walking around their ranks and it sounds like y'all are bragging about being a weak link. And I'm not saying you are weak, it's just that a virus doesn't care how tough you are.
