Missouri is suffering one of the worst COVID-19 surges in the country. Some hospitals are rapidly running out of ICU beds. To Americans who rushed to get vaccinated at the earliest opportunity, some Missourians’ desire for secrecy is difficult to understand. It’s also difficult to square with the common narrative that vaccine refusal, at least in conservative areas of the country, is driven by a lack of respect or empathy from liberals along the coasts. “Proponents of the vaccine are unwilling or unable to understand the thinking of vaccine skeptics—or even admit that skeptics may be thinking at all,” lamented a recent article in the conservative National Review. Writers across the political spectrum have urged deference and sympathy toward holdouts’ concerns about vaccine side effects and the botched CDC messaging about masking and airborne transmission early in the pandemic. But these takes can’t explain why holdouts who receive respect, empathy, and information directly from reliable sources remain unmoved—or why some people are afraid to tell their loved ones about being vaccinated.


What is going on here? Sociology suggests that pundits and policy makers have been looking at vaccine refusal all wrong: It’s not an individual problem, but a social one. That’s why individual information outreach and individual incentives—such as Ohio’s Vax-a-Million program, intended to increase vaccine uptake with cash prizes and college scholarships—haven’t worked. Pandemics, by definition, are collective problems. They propagate and kill because people live in communities. As a result, addressing pandemics requires understanding interpersonal dynamics—not just what promotes trust among people, but which behaviors convey status or lead to ostracism.

In Missouri and other red states, vaccine refusal on partisan grounds has become a defining marker of community affiliation. Acceptance within some circles is contingent on refusal to cooperate with the Biden administration’s public-health campaign. Getting vaccinated is a betrayal of that group norm, and those who get the shot can legitimately fear losing their job or incurring the wrath of their families and other reference groups.

It's time to unfollow Matt Taibbi on Twitter. He's been on an Ivermectin kick - not that he has expressed an opinion on how effective it is for treating COVID-19, but he's very, very angry that people are being "silenced" for talking about how it *might* be a treatment.

This is the one that got me:

Responding to this:

You do know that the drug "used to kill parasites in animals" won its developer the Nobel prize for its treatment of human beings? That doesn't speak to effectiveness against Covid-19, but it's totally dishonest to describe it as a drug just for animals.
Joseph Flynn literally bought horse medicine. OK, so Filipkowski here is taking a bit of dramatic license, but Taibbi is going full drama queen here. I tend to take Taibbi with a grain of salt - he's intentionally contrarian, but he's way, way too invested in the discussion of Ivermectin that I suspect he's a friend of one of the public facing scientists who is a big proponent.

I mean, it's not too much of a dramatic license. Ivermectin labeled for animal use is misbranded if marketed for use in humans.

Though I do have an idea for a business. I just need one of those drenching guns that they use to shoot dewormer into the throats of sheep and goats. I'll just drive around in a van to our reddest, Trumpiest shitholes, and charge $20 to blast idiots in the face with sheep drench.

Dame Lindsey Graham says he has COVID despite being fully vaxxed. This, of course, proves conclusively that vaccination is pointless.

Because Graham was vaccinated, this is extremely unlikely to kill him or even shut him up for any period of time.

I'll bet money that he got the delta variant, which wouldn't have gotten a foothold in America if he actually cared about America and didn't go anti-vax to appease the previous guy in the white house.

Tennessee has sent nearly half a million dollars to farmers who have vaccinated their cattle against respiratory diseases and other maladies over the past two years.

But Republican Gov. Bill Lee, who grew up on his family's ranch and refers to himself as a cattle farmer in his Twitter profile, has been far less enthusiastic about incentivizing herd immunity among humans.
That's right, in the Covideracy they care more about vaccinating livestock than people.

Note we aren't even talking about mandates, so it can't be a personal freedom issue, we are talking about incentives.

Tales of the Covideracy
