I came across this graph by our Finnish health authorities that made it clear even for me, a non-graph airhead:



Considering our vaccination level in those age groups overall is about 82% fully vaccinated it seems the bars should be inversed if the vaccination did not offer substantial protection from serious illness.

Yeah, itís a good article.

"An unvaccinated person is three times as likely to lean Republican as they are to lean Democrat," says Liz Hamel, vice president of public opinion and survey research at the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonpartisan health policy think tank that tracks attitudes toward vaccination. Political affiliation is now the strongest indicator of whether someone is vaccinated, she says: "If I wanted to guess if somebody was vaccinated or not and I could only know one thing about them, I would probably ask what their party affiliation is."
I thought this quote really illustrates the vax divide.

"Who won the election?" might refine it further. Lots of right wingers who haven't gone full conspiracy nutjob.

“Real America is done with #COVID19,” Jordan tweeted, ignoring data, experts and reality. “The only people who don’t understand that are Fauci and Biden.”

Jim Jordan is a dipshit and covid doesn’t care how conservatives feel about the pandemic.

I imagine if it could care, it would be happy that they think the pandemic is over. .

We probably should have a separate thread ( maybe in the philosophy forum? ) where we can discuss theories explaining WHY it's mostly right-wingers that are anti-vax - and why extreme right-wingers are often extreme anti-vaxers. The same goes (I think) for not wearing masks, continuing to want social gatherings, not restricting international travel - it seems to me that all methods of combatting the spread of the virus are attacked and ridiculed by right wingers.

...yea, all those right-wingers protesting covid mandates all across the western world...

:popcorn:

You have been fooled to think this is about politics, that is why you can not look at it either rationally, nor scientifically.

Trump was the one pushing the vaccines!!!! Fucking lmao @ you guys.
