Passing Thoughts Of A Mad Priest ( in the time of coronavirus )

I’m having trouble understanding why anyone is getting worked up about anti-vaxxers saying they are not going to be vaccinated against COVID-19 if a vaccine is developed.

Tell me if I’m wrong, but won’t it be a case of those who get the vaccine will not die of the coronavirus and those who refuse it might die and might pass it on to other people who refuse to be vaccinated who, in turn, might die from it.

I know it’s harsh, but as far as I’m concerned, that’s “problem solved.”

  1. Normally, if you were talking something like measles, I’d say you were wrong. As someone not vaccinating doesn’t just put themselves at risk, it puts other people at risk who are, for instance, immuno-compromised and can’t have the vaccine themselves.

    But measles is far more infectious than Covid19. You need >90% vaccination rates for measles and probably only 60-70% immunity rates for Covid19. So yeah, crack on, you’re good.
