Media reports the truth about COVID vaccines


Vaxxed truth

“Perestroika and glasnost.” Is this what a recent letter writer compared media coverage of the COVID vaccine to? Truly? I’m waiting for a Nazi comparison – oh, Republican women in Congress Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert already did!

The writer’s call for “honesty, truth and transparency” in the American media is downright laughable. The Republican Party and right-wing media continue to question vaccine science, demonize and denigrate Dr.Anthony Fauci, and push Donald Trump’s “Big Lie” that the election was stolen. Just tune into Fox News every night to hear the full “honesty” of Trump’s baseless claim about widespread voter fraud and suspicion about the vaccine. “Truth and transparency? Like the continued effort to block any investigation into the Jan. 6 insurgency, while also calling for a congressional inquiry into the origins of the coronavirus?

The honest and transparent truth about COVID-19 vaccines is that they work. Last week, according to the CDC, 99.2% of all deaths from COVID-19 were from unvaccinated people.

People have the right not to be vaccinated, but don’t complain to the rest of us about how you are seen as ‘part of the problem’. Getting vaccinated also means saving your fellow citizens. It’s the American thing to do, especially now that the Delta variant is spreading rapidly and we haven’t achieved collective immunity. It’s obvious: get yourself vaccinated so we can all get back to normal, whatever it is.
