Dear Unvaccinated Person,
Cold hard facts don’t seem to work. Indisputable science isn’t getting through. The COVID-19 vaccines are the most highly-scrutinized, heavily-tested, globally-verified, statistically-proven vaccines in the history of the world, but evidently that’s not enough for you. I don’t understand your logic. I don’t know what you’re reading or who’s talking to you.
But we know this: Since the vaccines became available in February, 94% of all new COVID cases in the U.S. have been contracted by the unvaccinated. Over the past six months, 97% of all COVID hospitalizations in this country have been for the unvaccinated. And, here in the great Republic of Texas, 99.5% of all COVID deaths during this time frame have tragically been unvaccinated people. In our state, there have been almost 9,000 COVID deaths since February. Only 43 of them were vaccinated Texans.
What we’re experiencing now is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. At this point, the only ones to blame for the overcrowded hospitals, the overworked doctors and nurses, the rising numbers of cases, the masks, the restrictions, the shutdowns, and the fear are the unvaccinated. Not the politicians, not the parties, not the scientists, not the news, not social media, not the internet – the fault lies with those refusing to get the vaccine.
The shots are free. There are no excuses. No reasons. All we can do at this point is to beg.
Please, get your shots. Please.
