Not so fast, Master Baiter.. (with varying levels of due respect for ya, buddy)
I am constrained to strongly disagree and side with the Mouse Talon, at least in part.
-Forget not the Long Haulers! People with all kinds of shit to deal with months after the virus is supposedly gone...
-Nor ignore the fact that the "99.xx" chance of surviving" is overstated, especially in light of the spread of the far more vicious variants.
-Above all, one never knows whether they'll be OK or end up "peering" at the inside of the ultimate Sad Sack: A body bag, with dead eyes that won't stay closed.
This is NOT a plan of action I would recommend to anyone, even the small but notable group of shit-heads I deal with from time to time on my daily walk of life.
In my state, which is not perceived as a 4th wave hot spot, young, healthy, even athletic people in the 20-40 bracket have died from this shit.
Get vaccinated? Yes of course! You bet your left ass cheek I will.... But it can't be made to sound like one is simply going to fill up the gas tank or get a pound of butter. Here we have an extensive and well oiled "vaccine delivery infrastructure"
But a lack of vaccines.
A lot like Homeless Depot advertising they opened 8 new stores "Right in your home town"-- but you go in and some dorky looking, bald-headed zero grins at you with his crooked yellow teeth, "Oh we don't have anything on the shelves yet, but we're open! My Name is Clyde. Welcome!"
I pre-registered the day I was eligible... last Monday, and was given a rough estimate of 4 to 6 weeks before I "might" get notified of the opportunity to book an appointment by the official Commonwealth of Assachusetts Vaccine Website.
And of the vax supplies they expect to receive per week, "x" are earmarked for the all-important second dose. Getting the first but not having any available within the time line for the second... is nothing short of a mess. They have to set those shots aside.
So, in all friendliness, Master Meat Puller, people need to stick with Plan A. Sign up, wait your turn, and stay the fuck away from gatherings. Go out only when you have to, and when out don't talk to anyone you run across.
....and also skip that asinine elbow bump. To do so is in violation of the social distancing rule-of-thumb. 6 feet.
Besides, any 2-legged ass-crack whose shoulder-to-elbow reach is 3 feet or more.. is a knuckle-dragging ape-man (or woman) not worthy of a dirty look, let alone an elbow bump.
Now then, Master Blaster... Smile! You been thoughtfully Bratted.
