Mild media rant:
So, I saw a Newsweek headline that “6 vaccinated patients die of covid in Florida” and while nothing is perfect and the vaccine appears to be safe and effective for most people, this wasn’t supposed to happen. I recall being told that the vaccinated, if infected would possibly have a mild case, no hospital, no death but that isn’t true. We are still learning, the virus is evolving and for some, the unknowns are enough to want to cautiously watch and wait.
Also, in the local news this morning a doctor was specifically asked how the effectiveness/protection compares in those who’ve had covid, recovered and have antibodies vs those who’ve received the vaccines. I wonder myself, so I listened carefully but unfortunately the doctor avoided any real information and quoted the CDC guidelines instead. I don’t want the usual script, I would like real answers. If there’s not enough data to reach a conclusion, just say so.
I this whole “ask no questions and just get the shot” thing irks me.
Regardless of views on vaccinations now, maybe later or never has anyone else noticed that mainstream media is so pro vaccine that even reasonable questions are being avoided?
