If you’re vaccinated, why do you care if you come in contact with those who aren’t? (Coming from a person who is vaccinated who doesn’t care about others personal health choices)

I am vaccinated and it does change my perspective a lot.

I’m in a demographic category that was fairly low risk anyway but the vaccine does help reassure me that it’s negligible at a personal level.

I also worry about spreading it to others, but again mostly about the unvaccinated and vulnerable. I know that in my family and friend group, the overwhelming majority are vaccinated with the only significant exceptions being kids under 12, and that kids are also less susceptible anyway. So those risks are also quite low, if not zero. I respect if friends with kids choose not to socialize, or choose to stick to outdoors only or keep masks on, and I’m happy to do the same when we’re together out of respect. But I no longer feel an obligation to keep social distancing, avoid handshakes and hugs, etc.

I understand that for some people, Delta is making them rethink the whole thing. I am concerned about it, but I’m not there. Though breakthrough cases do happen, they are still rare enough that I think we have enough tools between vaccines, masks and ventilation, and we shouldn’t shut things down again.

Because your unvaccinated a** is dragging this whole thing out. I want things to get back to normal already, don’t you? I’m tired of this as much as you are. If everyone got vaccinated, we could go back to normal. But no, your “freedom” ironically is preventing the rest of us from having the freedom of living a normal life again. So yeah, I’m gonna be a little mean to antivaxxers in person.

No one is talking about two things: antibody dependent enhancement, and leaky vaccines like these driving increasingly deadly virulent strains - please read about Marek's disease.

My friends all just got COVID and they all have the vaccine. Doesn’t stop you from getting it.

I’ve heard of three breakthrough cases just in my agency in three weeks so feels more common than “extremely rare”

Also this thread is confusing and a waste of time. I can’t believe I read it.

Because I have an infant who spent his first month of life in the NICU trying to breathe and he can’t get the vaccine. So if your unvaccinated self gives my vaccinated self Covid and then I bring it home to my kid, the consequences are kind of a big deal.

Why don’t we ask these anti vaxxers to move out and isolate themselves in a commune, instead of them telling other people to move?

Used to be called quarantine - this is permanent quarantine and it is their choice. They should be happy. This should be the norm for all those who put public safety at risk.

Unvaccinated people are derailing our goal.

Not being vaccinated means you are a breading ground for mutations of the virus. This causes new strains and then our vaccinations are no longer protecting us. The bigger picture is that I'm doing my part to get vaccinated just so you can undo it.

This is a leaky vaccine, look up Marek's disease to see what is happening. The spike pf increases happened before vaccines had wider distribution and Delta existed prior to large numbers having it.

Because unvaccinated people are a helluva more likely to get me sick or worse, cause me to be asymptomatic and carry the virus and then get my family members who are little kids (and who couldn't get vaccinated) sick. It boggles my mind how people seem to not comprehend that this decision doesn't just impact themselves.

Pretty much what WC1 & PWC5 said for me. I'm vaccinated but still wear masks when in public indoors and outdoors if crowded. I visit family members now who are also vaccinated but the little kids there aren't, also elders who are higher risks. I'll have a lesser chance of catching it, but I still don't want to spread it to the vulnerable just cause I'm "invincible" like OP.

I have had the virus. My opinion is that I am better off with these natural antibodies. There is no point to get the vaccine because it won’t do anything extra in preventing the delta variant. The vaccine is like the masks of last summer. False sense of security. In reality it doesn’t stop the actual case number.

Lol @SC1

1. Because I'm not a selfish dick and I care about the people around me who might be immunocompromised or who otherwise cannot get the vaccine.
2. Because vaccines are not 100% effective. Or are you the kind of genius who is gobsmacked when you/your gf gets pregnant because "it's impossible, we were using protection!!"
3. Because the longer this pandemic keeps going thanks to spread, the bigger the chance of the virus mutating to the point where vaccines will not be effective at all.

Like... none of this is rocket science. I probably shouldn't have even bothered to respond because this question has been asked and answered SO many times already I have a hard time believing that anyone asking it at this stage is asking in good faith.

D4 - I am also sick of this virus and encourage folks to get vaccinated. I’m also pragmatic enough to realize that we’re going to have to learn to live with this just like we live with HIV, AIDS, and the seasonal flu. The sooner all the hall monitors realize that, the better.

It’s time to remove insurance coverage for medical treatment for those unvaccinated but not immunocompromised. Go ahead, take the risk despite having a legitimate way out of this mess. But you also need to be accountable for the full risk that you’re taking on and also not forcing responsible folks to pick up the tab on medical bills

It’s also time to start putting restrictions on travel, school, etc for unvaccinated folks. You do not have the “freedom” to go around and infect others. You have a choice to be unvaccinated. Other people do not have a choice of avoiding you spreading something to them

Because as someone who is vaccinated you can:
1) still get COVID again
2) still get COVID and spread it to other vaccinated or unvaccinated folks
3) get sick yourself (due to the rise in virus mutations
4) put other high rush populations or immunocompromised folks at risk due to the variants

We have to understand that the vaccine doesn’t mean that you won’t get COVID or get sick, it’s just your reaction will not be as severe as it would have been.

like

PwC 2 I totally agree with you but you have to understand that as of yesterday, the CDC was pretty adamant and clear in its guidance that the vaccinated was very unlikely to get Covid (depending on your shot) and even more unlikely to pass it on to others.

As in their guidance as of a few weeks ago was that you can be in the office without masks with other unvaccinated people!

C2 you’re right I misspoke - not pass the vaccine but passing antibodies. Very different!

I’m vaccinated, and would prefer others are too, to the extent they can. But I’m also happy to hang out with folks who aren’t vaccinated as based on clinical trials I’m very well protected.

Besides getting vaccinated, I’d also prefer if folks didn’t go crazy. For example, by wanting to force an experimental vaccine on others, or by thinking that the use of protective masks in workplaces is somehow a virtuous thing and a solution to this pandemic while at the same time being fine with those masks being made out of whatever cloth happens to be in fashion and not out of filter materials certified for protecting against pathogens.
