Israel has just over 61 % of the population vaccinated, and the last time I checked delta is the most prevalent (only?) variant there.
By the way, I'm sorry for my sarcastic remark (boo-hoo). I was in a bad mood. I get why people won't get vaccinated, because it has been politiziced. It's a shame, really. And people (some really active in this thread) are relying too much on media (mainstream aswell as "alternative") regarding this virus IMO. If you look at the facts:
- it's extremely rare for children to get serious illness from Covid.
- if we all can agree on what constitutes knowledge, (epistemology), viruses follows the law of evolution. Delta is the most prevalent because it's the most contagious variant, other variants (like "mu" has vaned everywhere where delta has come to party). Historically, viruses becomes less harmful over time. And to be fair; compared to some other viruses covid is fairly mild. We'll be FINE.
- there's been NO studies showing that there exist a variant of CoVid capable of evading vaccines.
- the studies I've read regarding the effect of using masks haven't really shown that they make much of a difference (of course they help in the individual case regards to sneezing and coughing). The study from Bangladesh that made people go crazy had a lot of spurious variables not taken in account.
- if you want someone hesitant to get the vaccine, without directly or indirectly (covid passes), forcing them; Hysteria and aggression isn't the way. It's basic psychology, it will in most cases only end in that the person will get more hesitant. People, in general, want to make their OWN decisions, and not feel that they have others will imposed on them.
- I've gotten the vaccine because I trust science, I've had a lot of stuff ingested in my body, with contents not known by me. Since both pfizer and moderna has been cleared on phase 3, there has been over three billion people vaccinated by now, a large majority of them without any major side effects I feel pretty confident that I will be fine.
- By reading A LOT of peer-reviewed articles about the vaccines and the virus overall, I'm confident that the vaccine works. Unvaccinated people doesn't scare me. Remember that they're just people with a different opinion. I would like them to get vaccinated because I have a firm belief that the virus would be less of a problem if more people would do it, but really, what can you do? Everybody I know is vaccinated so I'm sure they'll be fine anyway (and their children isn't in any more danger to get severe illness from this than from other common illnesses, as the flu or the RS-virus), and I can't be bothered of what other peoples life choices may be. As long as I can do whatever I want (within the confinements of the law), and the people around me are healthy, I don't give a shit. If I would start to worry about people I don't know... Sheezh, I wouldn't be able to ever get some sleep, and it wouldn't make life better for the "unknowns" either. Pointless.
