Just so we're clear. In his vaccine mandate speech of September 9th, the President of the United States told us, with great assurance in his voice:
"…but the WORLD’S LEADING SCIENTISTS CONFIRM that if you’re fully vaccinated, your RISK of severe illness from Covid-19 is VERY LOW. In fact, based on available data from the summer, ONLY ONE OUT OF EVERY 160,000 fully vaccinated Americans was hospitalized for Covid (sic) per day. THESE ARE FACTS.”
That’s what he said. And he told us those were “FACTS”.
So if you’re fully vaccinated, your risk of ending up in the hospital due to COVID on any given day is 0.0006%, or six ten-thousandths of one percent. That's living in America at this very moment with all the stupid, selfish, unvaxxed masses. Is a risk of six ten-thousandths of one percent really something you should be worried about, or worse yet, a risk that you allow to control how you live your life? Just think about that number. SIX TEN-THOUSANDTHS OF ONE PERCENT! Stop fearing and demonizing your friends and family (based on an untrue narrative) just because they’ve chosen not to be vaccinated. They have their reasons; respect those reasons. They are not stupid and they are not evil. They just have a different opinion than you. They are human beings who have made a choice that can only hurt them, NOT YOU.
Contrary to the popular narrative (which makes absolutely NO SENSE considering what the President of the United States just told us), the unvaccinated are NO THREAT TO YOU AT ALL. NOBODY IS. A risk of 0.0006% is a ZERO risk. Believe the President of the United States when he tells you “YOU’RE AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE”. As the saying goes, you have a better chance of getting attacked by a polar bear and a regular bear on the same day than you do of ending up significantly ill from COVID that was “given” to you by some deplorable unvaxxed person (or anyone else for that matter). To borrow a quote from a really smart man who clearly really cares about you: THESE ARE FACTS.
If you really want to improve your "risks" as we continue through this pandemic, start to eat better, sleep better, exercise more, and re-engage with other humans WITHOUT FEAR of their vaccination status. Those not vaccinated don’t ever think whether the people they’re with are vaccinated or not, but strangely, those who are vaccinated often obsess over other’s vaccine status. The President of the United States told you emphatically that you have NOTHING to be concerned about. Take him at his word.
