There are Some people who still don’t believe in the whole idea of an expanding and rotating universe . They still believe that the universe revolves around them. We call them republicans and we try to avoid discussing science with them because when they talk science you find out things which no other scientists have ever discovered and we wonder wether all the other scientist in the world , the ones who are actually running the labs are wrong.
Donald trump says vaccines cause autism . Ben Carson the surgeon and rand guy says there are too many vaccines , implying not all are needed. The hp ceo says it should be personal choice to create or destroy herd immunity .
Ok. Maybe American public is smart enough to see throught this but this Same American public voted for a senseless and useless Iraq War which is still killing innocent people everyday in the form of Isis or daesh or whatever you want to call it. So it appears that yes they can be manipulated .
So could people stop vaccination merely because they are republican and their favorite elder says vaccination is bad just like those guys says global warming is not real therefor making thousands stand behind burning coal .
What pissed me off is that I found a young healthy nurse , looks like he just jumped out of an army recruitment poster ,who works with immunosupprssed patients and still refuses a flu shot.
I am not old or debilitated either but I get my flu shot only to protect my patients. If I get flu I may not even notice it but it could kill my patients so I take whatever risk is associated with the vaccine and protect my patients.
This nurse has Been asked to wear a mask at all times until the flu season ends but a) he doesn’t do it and b) that’s not enough protection.
I have talked to several nurses over the years who stand against immunization. Nurses !
Why are we Americans so stupid and arrogant?
And I am sure this nurse has a Concealed carry permit too. That’s usually goes along with arrogant and stupid.
