Columnist Scott Jennings says people should get their vaccine even though he agrees with Rand Paul that recent health advice from Fauci manipulative.www.courier-journal.com
Been giving a lot of estimates lately. Many for people in their 60s to 80s. I've asked most of them if they wanted me to wear a mask. They have all said "no. We've had our vaccine."
Read a FB post tonight from a customer. I really respect them. Great people. Hated reading her post stating people choosing not to get the vaccine are selfish, thoughtless, etc. Many of her friends list piled on agreeing and bashing non vaccinated people. I'm proud of me. I didn't comment.
Their argument was we cannot end this until everyone is vaccinated. Claimed it was selfish because we wanted a herd immunity. We were letting more people get it to achieve the goal.
Myself? I'd think whether vaccinated or taking your chances without, we can open the country up. If you choose not to get a vaccine and get Covid. . .you accept the risk. I accept this risk.

Former US President Donald Trump has urged his Republican supporters to be vaccinated against Covid-19, saying he would recommend it.
In a TV interview, he said the vaccine was "safe" and "something that works".
Mr Trump's conservative fan base has been one of the main groups resistant to the vaccine programme.
The former president himself was criticised during his time in office for playing down the seriousness of the pandemic.
As the vaccination programme has been rolled out across the US, all other living ex-presidents have spoken out, urging Americans to get the jab.
However, Mr Trump has remained largely quiet on the subject.
He and his wife, Melania, were vaccinated at the White House in secret in January.
"I would recommend it," Mr Trump said during an interview on Fox News Primetime on Tuesday.

- Is Europe's AstraZeneca jab decision-making flawed?
- Covid vaccines: How fast is worldwide progress?
"I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly."
He added: "It's a great vaccine, it's a safe vaccine and it's something that works."
Interesting he got his in secret - covid warsOh well that changes everything. Let me run out and get a vaccine I don't need because a politician that mostly aligns with my political beliefs recommends it. If I was that intellectually gullible I would have voted for Biden. .
