Pandemic Update for 2021-12-15: Avoidance — 1 Comment

  1. The vaccine-avoidance syndrome is beautifully presented by The NY Times article. I see this displayed consistently in my personal contacts with individuals (using the term “contacts” without irony!). For example: Vera and I are declining an invitation to a New Year’s Eve party at my brother-in-law’s American Legion post near Baltimore MD. The demographics of the attendees all fall neatly under the associated categories as the vast majority are white, ultra-conservative, vaccine/Covid deniers, somewhat “evangelical” Christians, heavy consumers of alcohol, macho men (and women), and big-time supporters of former President Donald Trump. This get-together is almost guaranteed to be a significant Covid hot-spot at year’s end. I let my sister know that this is a definite no-no for us. There will be no mask-wearing. And social-distancing will, of course, be non-existent. We have no death-wish, thankyouverymuch! We’ll be quietly enjoying our traditional New Year’s sushi platter along with a nice bottle of Prosecco. 🙂
