Regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, “do not want” Leave it as it is.
Nonsense is the two most frequent reasons anti-vaccines give by not taking the vaccine.
According to them, the vaccine is so new that they don’t know what they have in their body. And they don’t want to be told that their employers have to be vaccinated because they violate their personal freedom.
on Monday, Singer Nicki Minaj said she wouldn’t attend Financing gala for COVID vaccination requirements at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
“They want you to be vaccinated against the Metropolitan Museum of Art. If I were vaccinated, I wouldn’t be vaccinated against the Metropolitan Museum of Art,” Minage, who had previously announced that he had been infected with COVID, tweeted. “When I feel like I’ve done enough research, I’m working on it now. In the meantime, my loved one is safe. Wear a mask with two laces to grab your head and face. It’s so loose. Not. “”
There is a problem with such an argument.
It’s a daily occurrence that you don’t know what you have in your body.
What does the medicine you are taking contain?
For example, more than 35 million Americans take statins, a drug that helps reduce bad cholesterol. However, none of those people have any idea what the statins, including Lipitor, contain. I didn’t even know Until I see the FDA website:
Statins contain “10, 20, 40, or 80 mg of atorvastatin and the following inactive ingredients: Calcium Carbonate, USP. Candelilla Wax, FCC; Croscarmellose Sodium, NF; Hydroxypropyl Cellulose, NF; Lactose monohydrate, NF; Magnesium stearate, NF; Microcrystalline cellulose, NF; Opadry white YS-1-7040 (hypromellose, polyethylene glycol, talc, titanium dioxide); Polysorbate 80, NF; Simeticon Emulsion. “
I can’t pronounce most of them.
The same applies to drugs for heart, diabetes and anxiety.
You take them because your doctor says so, and you don’t protest that you have something in your body, and you don’t know what’s in it .. You take medicine because your health care professional says so.
What is the difference between vaccination with COVID vaccine?
Let’s take this one step further.
Americans eat frozen and canned foods and don’t know what’s in them. Not all ingredients for popular frozen pizzas are listed, but here are the flavors of their contents: pork and chicken, BHA, BHT, and pre-cooked pizza toppings that protect the flavor by adding citric acid ( Pork, mechanically separated chicken).
Mechanically separated chicken? Yes.
So next time you insist that you don’t want to put anything in your body, you should look up your grocery list.
Employers often dictate terms
Employment is even more mysterious. Forget the 1905 ruling of the Supreme Court, which gave businesses the right to require employees to be vaccinated against the flu. Employers have been telling employees what to do for thousands of years.
The employer tells you when you have to come to work and when you can leave.
Violations of these rules can result in suspension, loss of salary, or dismissal. Your boss tells you how long you will have lunch and how much vacation you can take.
Companies have rules about social media, including private pages, that control how they interact with colleagues and community members. In addition to requiring a vaccine.
That’s why the most honest statement for those who are still resistant to vaccines is “I don’t want to” and that’s it.
People will say they don’t want to drink coffee, they don’t want to work overtime, they don’t want to go to movies they aren’t interested in. They don’t admit why they don’t want to. They don’t.
It’s a delta variant furious, New mu variant Health officials are starting to worry.
In a world where honesty is important, just say “I don’t want it.” I don’t know, but at least I can respect your honesty.
