People who have deliberately chosen not to get vaccinated because they believe it’s their own personal choice and some sort of inherent right, and that being unvaccinated only effects them, are killing people. They’re spreading the virus. Even if they end up getting a mild case of it and don’t end up in the hospital, it’s highly likely that someone they spread it to did. Every infected person passes it on to 2–6 people who then go on to infect 2–6 people, who infect 2–6 people and so on. They all won’t be as lucky as the smug guy who started the infection chain. 1 in 10 of the people that were infected who end up in the hospital will die. People dying of covid (or from anything else because there wasn’t room for them at the hospital) are the responsibility of the smug shits who believe it’s their right not get to get vaccinated.
