It was easier for me to understand concerns about the vaccine before so many people survived their vaccinations. In the absence of data that indicate significant probabilities of vaccine-related death and disability, particularly when compared to COVID-related death and disability, I think mask and vaccine avoidance is driven mostly by a dislike of being told what to do.What really gets me with all these protests is that COVID is the lading cause of LODD for the last 2 years. Project 100 is and should be a point of emphasis for LE yet COVID alone took 200 per year. I still have officers on every call not even wearing a simple mask, let alone an N95.
As there isnt a ton of evidence for routine 3rd shots, my hospital system has yet to make any mention of requiring it, though it is available and you can mix if desired.
