Some may receive Covid-19 vaccines in disguise to hide their vaccination status

There were no genre films in high school titled The fully vaccinated breakfast club or Medium antivaxxers just now. But apparently some people who want to get vaccinated against Covid-19 may face high school-like peer pressure or even bullying. In the following video, Priscilla Frase, MD, chief medical information officer at Ozarks Healthcare, described how her patients said they actually had to dress up during the vaccination so that their family members and peers were not do not know:

Ozarks Healthcare is based in West Plains, Missouri. To date, only 42.1% of the total Missouri population and 49.3% of the population aged 12 and over are fully vaccinated, according to the Missouri Covid-19 Dashboard. So if you are fully vaccinated in Missouri, you may still be in the minority in your community.

Welcome to High School Musical that’s America 2021, where grown-ups actually have to hide by doing something that can be beneficial for themselves and for others. We are in the midst of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, a public health emergency. The most contagious Delta variant is spreading. And there are people who judge and stigmatize others who to have vaccinated?

OK, we don’t know how many people actually had to resort to disguise. It is also not known to what extent these disguises were able to be developed. Wearing a Clark Kent or Kara Danvers hat or glasses is one thing. Dressing up as a hot dog and telling others that your first name is “Hot” and your last name is “Dog” is something completely different.

Nonetheless, it’s no surprise that people can dress up. After all, political leaders and others delivering anti-immunization messages have politicized and culturalized immunization to a rather secondary degree. It’s a bit like how high school bullies try to arbitrarily label some activities cool and others as losers. They got vaccinated and took Covid-19 precautions against us against their cliques.

As a result, some people may be reluctant to admit if they’ve been vaccinated, much like jock Mike Dexter hid he was hanging out with nerdy guy William Lichter in the movie. I can not wait. On July 22, Annie Grayer, Lauren Fox and Sarah Fortinsky reported for CNN that nearly half of Republicans in the US House of Representatives have not publicly disclosed whether they have been vaccinated against Covid-19. They quoted Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) who responded “this is very curious of you” when asked about his immunization status and said: “I think we should talk more about the release. of Britney ”. So basically Gaetz seemed to be saying don’t hit me again with that question.

Then there’s Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has been called a “super-broadcaster” of Covid-19 vaccine fears by HBO TV host John Oliver, as I described earlier for Forbes. He’s been quite a Tucker when it comes to vaccines. Yet, as Charlotte Alter reported for Time, when she asked Carlson about his immunization status, he wasn’t really candid. He reportedly replied, “Because I’m a polite person, I’m not going to ask you super vulgar personal questions like that.” »Oversight? It’s not as if the reporter asks Carlson if he has autoplushophilia, which according to one The HuffPost The article is “Self-Awakening Dressed as a Giant Cartoon-Like Stuffed Animal”. Or xylophilia, which is an excitement for wood and not the kind of wood you might expect.

As with high school cliques and bullies, you can’t always tell if someone is taking a stand because they actually believe in that position or because it portrays a certain image.

It’s one thing not to get yourself vaccinated because you have questions about the Covid-19 vaccine or don’t want to feel like you have to get vaccinated. This is understandable. Not everyone has the same knowledge and the same level of comfort with the Covid-19 vaccine. In such a situation, it makes sense to speak to a real, legitimate medical expert to better understand the risks you may be facing. After all, you don’t want to put yourself in danger of contracting Covid-19 just because you have a misconception about the vaccine.

However, it is something completely different from pressuring other people not to get vaccinated. It is safe for you to have someone close to you who is vaccinated. There is no evidence that a Covid-19 vaccine on its own will make anyone get rid of the virus, despite what some anonymous social media accounts are trying to tell you. If you want others around you not to get vaccinated just because you don’t want them, it’s high school. What if you tell others not to get vaccinated even though you have been vaccinated? Well, there are plenty of high school names for that, none of them are very nice.
