    “What about your friends and relatives who are not vaccinated?”

    “Anyone who refuses to be vaccinated have shown themselves to be too dumb with which to associate. I have no friends who are not vaccinated. Everyone in my immediate family are vaccinated. As for the other acquaintances and relatives who are not, [expletive] ’em.”

    From the standpoint of the coronaviruses, there’s nothing more glorious than a 7-billion-Petri-dish breeding ground in which they can try out new and interesting ways of propagating themselves. Omicron may be the most recent variant, but absent worldwide vaccination, it will certainly not be the last. COVID doesn’t give a rip that omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet. After it blows by that designation, it’s on to Cyrillic.

    I have to wonder if the health insurance companies will refuse to pay any ICU costs if the person simply refused the vaccine. Of course any who can provide Dr.’s excuse might be exempt. Wonder now many Dr.s will want to get pulled into those lawsuits.

    Sorry, the case of “religious exemption”, should not apply. I don’t know an example, in any religious text. Hmm… maybe if a mega church makes those claims they get stuck with the bill.

    There is a hope that the virus will tend to mutate to be more transmissible but cause less severe illness, like the common cold. It is, in evolutionary terms, not in the ‘best interest’ of the virus to kill its host. The best for the virus is to infect some one, multiply and pass its copies of itself onto new hosts. Need to wait and see with Omicron, but in the mean time, vaccinate, keep a window open, wear a mask, wash hands for 20 seconds every hour and keep your distance.

    As far as the strip itself, I’d say Darwin was right about survival of the fittest (smartest). The only people I feel sorry for are the kids who have no say in the choice of vaccination or not and the health care providers who will end up caring for these people. Any adult that doesn’t take the shot because of the BS on FaceCrook, Faux (not) News or any of the other disseminator sites that hawk about the supposedly side effects, well you’ve made your choice and now you have to suffer the consequences of that choice.

    You may judge me cold but it is rational.

    Too many people need incentives or even threats to get the shots.

    With smallpox, polio, and many, many other diseases people didn’t complain, whine, or need to be prompted – they thought of others (and not just their own family), lined up, rolled up their sleeves, and said “Thank you!” to those giving them the immunizations.

    This nation has fallen into the sewer over just a few simple pricks.

    It’s not all doom & gloom. What I’ve not seen mentioned, at all, is that it’s highly likely that the nascent anti-viral drugs from both Pfizer and Merck will be just as effective against any new SARS-CoV-2 variant as they’ve been shown to be in trials. The drugs work by completely different biochemical mechanisms than the vaccines. (Details are readily available on the web.) Consequently, they’re likely to be entirely immune to the development of resistant variants. There are some real downsides to the drugs, however. They may be inadvisable for pregnant women (or must I say “pregnant people?”), the drugs MUST be given early in the infection to be at all effective, and they’ll be expensive. In any case, they’ll require even faster and more accessible COVID testing and they’re no replacement for getting vaccinated.

    Another positive is that the current and remarkably effective mRNA vaccines are, by design, readily modifiable. It’s very likely that they can be rapidly changed to address any new variant that isn’t controlled by the current mRNA vaccines.

    Got my booster as soon as I could, October 12. Pfizer may have to do some tweaking. I’m ready for a 4th shot in the spring. Mainly because some Americans won’t get it and folks in other countries haven’t been able to get it yet. Unfortunately, it was predictable since folks aren’t taking proper measures because they can’t or won’t depending on geography. Just because the numbers went down was no reason to stop wearing masks. We need to stay the course until we stomp it out. We are not General Custer. We can do it if enough people stay the course.

    I find it interesting that this has turned into a liberal vs conservative thing. Getting vaccinated doesn’t automatically mean one is liberal. Neither does not getting vaccinated mean that one is necessarily a conservative. In general, this might be true, but not always. I’m a political moderate who got vaccinated because I wanted to avoid getting the virus, and I know a person who is liberal-leaning, but didn’t get vaccinated because two different doctors told her not to because her medical issues.

If you want to go there, Florida, which is conservative, has one of the lowest infection rates right now. Michigan which is liberal has one of the highest. Get you head out of your arse and just start attempting to get people vaccinated, rather than dividing the country.

    The decision-making ability of the Human Race is amazingly limited. You can’t build immunity against COVID-19 unless you become infected and live, dying pretty much ends in permanent immunity, but in a real bad way. Or you could get vaccinated and skip the dying altogether.

    Some idiots on the far left have engaged in schadenfreude at the prospect of vaccine resistors failing the “Darwin test” and thinning the ranks of Republican voters. But I always remind them that each new infection gives the virus another opportunity to pass the “Darwin test” and mutate into a variety that thwarts current vaccines.

    This is also the reason that “vaccine nationalism” is shortsighted. Yes, we need to see that all Americans have access to a vaccine, and find ways to nudge resistors so they do not endanger themselves and others. But “vaccine generosity” with the developing world also reaps long-term dividends for Americans. If a more contagious or more resistant strain of the virus develops anywhere in the world, it is bound to find its way here. Does the word “Delta variant” ring a bell?

    This Thanksgiving, I’m especially thankful for scientists and medical professionals who have enabled me to resume something like a normal life, and for journalists who are combatting lies and rumors that endanger us all.

    I’m just curious. You all seem so concerned about getting vaxxed and beating the COVID virus, how do you feel about the 200,000 illegal aliens that cross our southern border EVERY MONTH, without being tested or vaxxed for COVID? It’s safe to assume that a significant number of them are infected with the virus. Biden then has them transported by bus and plane to undisclosed locations, all over the country. Then he gets on TV and whines about masks and getting vaxxed! By the end of 2021, there will be more than 2 MILLION illegal aliens that are untested and unvaxxed in our country! Are you at least a little concerned about that?

Do you plan to accordingly put blood on Biden’s hands too, if you ever get around to mentioning him on your strip? And are you a cartoonist or a propaganda sheet for the Democrat party?

    Sorry for your covid vax reactions. I am not anti vax but my wife and I seem to have immunity to everything. We have not had a flu shot in over twenty years and never had the flu or any kind of cold. We have been very active, ballroom dancing, professional photography conventions, weddings, portraits, groups large and small, bowling, dinner with friends, plane flights, etc. Every chance to get sick seems to skip over us. I do social distance and wear a mask in certain stores not because of strong conviction but because I know some people feel safer when I do, and I respect their truth even though it is not my truth. Science needs to study the ultra healthy to see how and why we are ultra healthy and find out what elements would transfer to the general population.

    Thanks to the V.A., all three shots on first day eligible! Amazingly organized mass vax of hundreds per day! Yay for “Socialism” !
