That seems extreme, he got his shot, wasn't necessarily against it, but was simply questioning whether it's worth it.
Can't say I disagree with him.
An annual flu shot for the elderly is not the same as a biannual COVID shot for an entire population.
Getting a shot that may have severe side effects is also not the same as sticking to the speed limit or wearing a seat belt.
I'm also not keen on driving an hour to get a shot that protects me against something that likely isn't going to be a big deal for me, every six months, possibly twice.
He wasn't rude or anything, just asking a question.
This seems more like cancel culture or political censorship, agree with us or be banned Unsure | :~
