Just wear the damn mask and get the damn vaccine, that's my thought. I'm sick and tired of people thinking about this issue when they clearly have no qualifications to be thinking about it. What kind of data are you looking for, please tell me, what kind of data do you need and what exactly is that data going to tell you? Firms have to make sure people who are actually compromised and scared are somewhat comfortable, they have no interest in listening to or answering questions from the contrarians right now.

Associate 6, thanks for being one of the only reasonable and logically people on this app. The reason I didn’t include that in my original post is because I didn’t want to bias the responses in any way but I guess that backfired since the rage over the unvaccinated kicked in so quickly for all these other responders.

Stop listening to hack medical opinions and political pundits who know even less. The top physicians in our country agree - and anyone with any common sense should understand - vaccines work. They help you and help others. Doctors who are not whackos will tell you that an unvaccinated person who becomes infected expels much more virus than those who are vaccinated. Also, if everyone took the vaccine early on, we wouldn’t have such a problem with the variants. Those who are not getting vaccinated are slowing down a return to normalcy. It’s that simple. Get smart and get vaccinated.

Even assuming transmission rates are the same… your “logic” is faulty. It assumes that both vaccinated and unvaccinated are already infected. The truth of the matter is that breakthrough infections in vaccinated people are rare. It is much more likely that a non vaccinated person has covid in the first place, even if transmission rates are similar.

I have no idea how people can purport to scrutinize the data behind mask mandates for unvaccinated but have absolutely no concept of how to use the term “discriminatory practice.” I can kinda support that you should be able to have a personal choice on whether or not to get a vaccine - but not when you complain about the consequences.

My entire family is physicians. Every single one of them reiterates that vaccines work and fight the virus more effectively. I have seen first-hand loved ones pass away from catching COVID before the vaccine was available. Please keep an open mind and get vaccinated.
