If you vaccinate yourself and your kids then why do you care if anyone else does or does not vaccinate?

If you know that your car has seatbelts and airbags, does that make it OK for you to drink and drive?

Of course not. You would be putting others at risk because you were being stupid / selfish. And that's why D&D (or DUI in the US) is heavily frowned upon - because those that do it are potentially driving into a bus stop queue of pregnant nuns and killing them all.

Just because you have been vaccinated doesn't mean you aren't infectious. And while one person remains at risk of catching the disease you are vaccinated against, it will survive and probably breed. Think about it: we've had vaccines since 1000AD and in all that time we have eradicated one disease. Just one - smallpox. And that only because of a concerted effort worldwide to vaccinate and still took 20 years!

Can you even begin to imagine the damage Covid could do if we take 20 years to get it under control? Because I can't. The deaths, the economic damage, the long term medical effects are already close to causing irreparable damage in the first year alone!
