They/We want people to get vaccinated. So this could be over. It is really quite simple.

Chickennone

Aaaaaand there’s the divide they continue to make

While they take in the cash and your freedom

Keep arguing amongst yourself for feel good clicks

And virtue signaling online

You’ll surly win in the end

The govt always has your best interests in mind

They work for you not themselves

Yes keep arguing - it’s exactly what they want you to do

Verdad

No need for arguing. Get vaccinated. Well duh!

Verdad

Paranoia strikes deep

Into your life it will creep

It starts when you're always afraid

@ashishkjha

So bottom line?

Yeah, delta variant is bad. Like really bad

Our vaccines are good. Like really good

Breakthrough infections happen

Sometimes they may spread to others

But if enough people get the shot

The pandemic does come to an end

Does Phil Valentine have the flu?

Be part of the solution, or be part of the problem. Easy choice for people with a brain.

I'm just out here raw mouthing life, have been this whole time. But I'm also not overweight, but let's ignore that huge factor. Wouldn't want to hurt someone's feelings and save their life. Most of the population should be worried about heart disease and diabetes, not the coof.

Brian C. Duffy

You're definitely not overweight above the neck.

A new public study out of England of the Delta variant shows 44 deaths out of 53,822 (only .08%) in an unvaccinated group.

Don’t let the fearmongers win

Verdad

You are the fearmonger. You are out here spreading misinformation about vaccines. We are not letting you win. Pretty awesome vitamins though.

Soxfan63

.31%? C'mon Ned...This crisis is OVER.

Yup. We have several vaccines now. Duh

Chickennone

Some day all the lies about covid will be exposed - I hope I’m still around to see if

Verdad

Cool. Going to get vaccinated will improve you chances of still being here.

Are we supposed to believe that 13 people died FROM Covid in one day?

In the words of Sleepy Joe..."C'mon man!"

You are doing a fine job of highlighting your childish ignorance. Go get vaccinated and participate in society.

If you believe those numbers, I have oceanfront property in Nebraska for sale

When you are capable of understanding Math you don't need to 'believe' the numbers. You are so concerned about vaccines in your body that you have not realized you have allowed your mind to be poisoned. Say hi to Tucker. Feel free to read a book.
