As if any number without a dollar sign attached to it means something to the kind of dope who chooses not to get vaccinated for political reasons.

And if everyone were vaccinated, hospitals wouldn’t be overflowing with patients, so people with other illnesses or injuries could get treatment too.

We thank you for the taste test so that we don’t have to do it ourselves.

Science denying folks won’t understand that math, they can’t even figure out the science or even common sense.

I am not a statistician, but does that mean the vaccines have about a 75% efficacy now? Including the delta variant, and across the three vaccines available in that state.

Edit: okay, more like 77% at preventing illness and 94% at preventing death.

That sounds about right, and it tracks with what the experts have been saying since delta came on the scene.

Makes me think of a line from St. Elsewhere that went something like, “every surgery is elective until it isn’t.” I really feel for the people who are being forced to delay important surgeries and such because hospitals have no staff or facilities to accommodate them.

Still playing in my favorite Facebook group where I posted that article.

I was told the unvaccinated are dying because they are going to the hospital when they should be contacting America’s frontline doctors to get ivermectin. To that I responded with this great Time article about that group to which I was told, of course, fake news.

And there are “natural” ways to stop COVID - wearing a fucking mask and getting a fucking vaccine. Doesn’t mean horse paste, nor that link, is legitimate.

Agreed. And if the links were natural doctor designed/authorized hats or shades, they likely be ten times overpriced. It just brought to mind the technically honest advertisement that sold a penis enlarger that turned out to be a magnifying glass.
