Those young and "educated" students, who won't protect themselves or their schoolmates, should have to sign a waiver saying that if they catch the vid, they'll forfeit their right to go to a hospital and take up a bed.

Sad that the supposedly more highly educated are holding back so much, but I guess it shows the power of social media.

Peru is having some success with young adults through Vacunathons and Vacuna Fests. Make it more joyful.

Since both the vaccinated and unvaccinated shed the virus, the survival rate among the 18-25 years old who develop symptoms is 99.999%, and the vaccines do not protect from the new variants after Delta, the question is what are the benefits of those young students getting vaccinated.

Laughably absurdly false. This isn’t gaslighting. This is bad gaslighting.
