I rather like being able to watch a film and not wondering "how many people died because this was made?"

Wright should've been sacked back in... *checks Ameri's link*... December.

It's a personal medical decision. Should she have been talking about it on set no clue, but as long as she wasn't hurting anyone the first amendment applies. It only became a political deal when one side wanted it Mandatory and the other wanted it Voluntary. Get Jabbed or don't It's non of my business just a decision between everyone and their Doctor.

That's not how vaccination works.

For each additional person vaccinated, the value of the action increases.

So, what that table is telling you is that if the 1 - P(getting Covid when fully vaccinated) = 97% (say), then if the raw R0 of delta is 7, you'd need to vaccinate 88.4% of people to control delta.

If someone isn't vaccinated it is not just your business, it might be your LIFE. Or your kid's life. Or your dog's life. Or your mum's life. Or your grandad's. Or your favourite singer's. Or your partner's life. And so on.

This is called a free rider problem, incidentally. There are people like, quite possibly Wright, who try to free ride off everyone who does get vaccinated. And if too many people free ride, then diseases run rampant. The best protection Pfizer gives is about 87.5% in some studies, which by Plotkin's formula means if more than 2% of people don't get vaccinated, the world is fucked (were Pfizer the only vaccine).

Don't believe me? Take your mind back to the measles outbreaks of 2019...

I just got it last month and am perfectly fine. Don't have any kids. My dog will be fine. My mother also had it and is fine. He got Jabbed because that's what he and his doctor decided. I assume Taylor Swift will be fine. Single and Happy. No need for me to get something to protect me from a disease that's got a 97/99% Survival Rate.

The 2019 outbreak was caused by Karens that refused to give their kids a safe and Time proven cure.

So, you agree that vaccination is not "a decision between everyone and their Doctor". Unless by that you mean "your doctor tells you to get it and then you get it" but I'm yet to meet a doctor that isn't "it's a good idea but it's your choice" so I doubt that's the case.

It is a decision between everyone and their Doctor. But there's a difference in refusing a vaccine we've used for over half a century and wanting your Doctor's opinion on a brand new product with no long term side effect research.
I personally want to wait because everyone everywhere is trying to make me get it. The Government doesn't really have a good track record of having people's best interest in mind, plus forcing people to get a medical treatment is super un American.
