1. The CDC could cause a big jump in vaccinations if it would just give final approval to the vaccines. Many people won't take it while it is still considered "experimental" and only has "emergency use authorization."
2. People who refuse vaccinations are just choosing to get their immunity the other way--by getting infected and recovering. Of course they stand a small chance of dying by getting immunized that way, which is unfortunate and sad but it is their choice, just like choosing skydiving as a hobby.
3. Perhaps if the unvaccinated get infected quickly enough they, together with the vaccinated, may get us to herd immunity soon enough to head off still newer variants that vaccines can't protect against.
4. Get vaccinated.

Get vaccinated already. How many warnings and announcements does everyone need? You will either be vaccinated or infected because of the more transmissible Delta variant. Again, to be clear, the choice is no longer vaccinated or unvaccinated. The choice is now vaccinated or infected. Also, get vaccinated so we ALL can pull out of this COVID cycle and move forward. Stop putting everyone else’s health at risk by walking around unvaccinated, infected, and spreading it. I am tired of Earth. These people. I’m tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives. Get the vaccine already and stay out of my beloved Crescent Park until you are fully vaccinated!
