Covid-19 is a worldwide killer and vaccines are the answer, if everyone does their part. Let me tell you why.
The Covid-19 vaccination program began in December 2020 with Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. The supply was very scarce and the demand was very great. There are a lot of people in great health who have died of Covid-19. They ate well, took care of themselves and have no idea where they got the virus. Frontline medical professionals have died from Covid-19. In some cases, their immune system went into overdrive, and they didn’t pull through.
I’ve heard plenty of people feeling the after effects of Covid-19, including weeks without being able to taste food and respiratory problems.
Worldwide we just past the 1 billion doses of vaccines being administered. We still have a long ways to go. In the US and other countries, health professionals are monitoring the effectiveness of the vaccine. They don’t work for the drug companies. They have found that the vaccines are working, even against the various new strains. However, for the 2 shot vaccines, the second shot is really necessary to get the full benefit of the vaccine.
I’ve heard now, a few reasons why not to get vaccinated. The first is that it might actually cause you to get coronavirus, as they are injecting a weaken virus into your system. This is totally false. They are injecting strands of DNA which generate anti-body cells to defend the body against Covid. Second, the vaccines are not 100% effective. This one is true, but I’d say, 95% effective is pretty good to me. There will never be a perfect vaccine.
I heard a commentator state that the elderly are dying from Covid and the youth are spreading it. Well, yes and no. A third of the elderly population is unvaccinated, and they certainly can be spreading it. And within the US, there are 2,300 young adults (under age of 30) who died of Covid-19. It is sad, but now it is also preventable.
Covid-19 is a worldwide killer and vaccines are the answer, if everyone does their part. End of sermon.
One thought on “Why You Should Get Vaccinated”
Perhaps the best people to convince others to get vaccinated are those that came close to dying from Covid-19, live in rural America, and have regular contact with the elderly. As reported in the NYT, Dr. Lewis is all of the above, He was hospitalized for over a month. He was so gravely ill that he recorded a farewell speech to his family. He is a physician, 43 years old, and is taking every opportunity to explain to others why they need to be vaccinated. It isn’t political. The push for vaccines began with the Trump administration who successfully pushed for expeditious development and distribution of vaccines through Operation Warp Speed.
