Had dinner with a friend last night - an anti vaxxer.


She was saying that there were a lot of alternatives - that the vaccine would harm a lot of people. She talked about how the horse dewormer - ivermectin - really worked.

I simply said - if 100 people are in the hospital with a serious case of COVID - 95 of them didn’t take the vaccine.

It was plain - she had never seen or heard of this fact. The point isn’t about her - the point is that she us getting her information from places that are not telling basic facts. Someone like Fox might find a way to mention this briefly in a passing by manner - then jump into its bonkers arguments talking about everything but how to truly avoid this disease.

I mean it - she had heard all about ivermectin - way too much false information - but really did not have any idea that vaccines save most everyone’s life.
