    Surely with odds like that. But YOU already Got the Free Vaccine.

    President Biden received his Covid-19 booster shot at the White House today and urged Americans to "do the right thing" by getting vaccinated.
    Last week, the CDC recommended Pfizer boosters for older adults, long-term care facility residents, some people with underlying health conditions and adults at increased risk of Covid-19 because of their jobs.
    About 20 million Americans are eligible for a third shot of the Pfizer vaccine.

    "It was an easy decision": McConnell announces he got a Covid-19 booster today
    From CNN's Clare Foran
    Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell announced in Senate floor remarks on Monday that he just received his Covid-19 booster.

    “I’m glad to share that a few minutes ago I received a booster vaccination for Covid-19,” he said.

    “It was an easy decision to receive a booster. I’m a survivor of childhood polio from before vaccines eradicated that disease here in our country and around the world so I’ve been a lifelong champion of vaccinations," McConnell said on the Senate floor.
    “Like I’ve been saying for months, these safe and effective vaccines are the way to defend ourselves and our families from this terrible virus. They’re also how we stay on offense against Covid as a country. All Americans should speak with their doctors and get vaccinated,” he said.

    McConnell's announcement came only hours after President Biden received a Covid-19 booster on camera at the White House.
    "We know that to beat this pandemic and to save lives ... we need to get folks vaccinated," Biden said during remarks ahead of his shot. "So, please, please do the right thing. Please get these shots. It can save your life and it can save the lives of those around you."

    I'm pretty sure there is already A LOT of money spent on cancer research.
    And it's incredibly unlikely I will catch cancer in a crowded room, so your comparison is ridiculous.

    I'm a huge sports fan and I've followed this story. Covid is turning racial and the NBA is trying to walk a fine line. Again, black people are the least vaccinated race in the country and these mandates are gonna hit their community hard.
    Embrace the process, not the outcome.

    Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor Jr. I might listen to, but when he became a Black Muslim and gave up the name his parents gave he lost all respect IMHO.

    Unvaccinated Americans Blame Everyone But Themselves—Children, Vaccines And Not Wearing Masks—For Covid Surge, Poll Finds


    While most Americans blame vaccine holdouts for surging coronavirus cases, rationed medicines and overwhelmed hospitals, few unvaccinated people feel any responsibility, according to new polling by the Kaiser Family Foundation, underscoring the tough barriers officials must overcome as they seemingly hold anyone and anything other than themselves responsible for the dire outbreak.

    Nearly 8 in 10 (77%) vaccinated Americans blame the high number of Covid-19 cases on people refusing to get vaccinated, according to the poll conducted September 13-22 among 1,519 U.S. adults.

    Vaccinated adults also pinpointed people not taking enough precautions like mask wearing and social distancing (73%), the infectiousness of the delta variant (67%), and local and state governments lifting restrictions too soon (59%) as key reasons for the rise in cases, the poll found.

    Just 12% of unvaccinated adults believe people refusing the vaccine is a major factor behind the high case numbers, the poll found, with the majority (58%) thinking the surge is driven by vaccines being less effective at preventing the spread of Covid-19 than scientists initially thought.

    Unvaccinated people even cited vaccine holdouts last among all reasons driving the high case numbers polled by Kaiser, including children who aren’t eligible for vaccination (15%), governments lifting restrictions too soon (27%), the infectiousness of the delta variant (35%), people not taking enough precautions (37%) and immigrants and tourists bringing Covid-19 into the country (40%).

    Divergent beliefs in what is driving the wave of coronavirus highlight the wider differences in opinion between the vaccinated and unvaccinated, with a majority of holdouts thinking that breakthrough infections (66%) and the potential need for booster shots (71%) show the vaccines don’t work.

    Just 11% of vaccinated people thought breakthrough cases indicate the vaccines aren’t working, Kaiser found, and 19% thought the same of booster shots.


    SURPRISING FACT

    Despite 77% of vaccinated people holding the unvaccinated responsible for the rise in cases, just over half (51%) said they were angry with them. Unsurprisingly, only 3% of the unvaccinated said they were angry with people who hadn’t gotten a Covid-19 vaccine. As with other opinions on vaccination, the anger is partisan: 65% of Democrats said they were angry with the unvaccinated, while just 16% of Republicans felt the same. Instead, a majority of Republicans (59%) and the unvaccinated (56%) said they were angry with the federal government for the state of the pandemic, compared to 30% of the unvaccinated and 20% of Democrats.

    No we don't but Biden blames us and Trump for everything HE fucks up.
    I don't blame myself for anything, I follow the sensible guidelines laid out to us.
    That doesn't include shots nor masks.
