Sheesh, come on people. Get vaccinated. You may not be having a problem or if you do you may not have it bad or maybe you don't even care if you have to get monoclonal antibodies or get admitted to the hospital. There are a lot of us out there who want to not have to go through all of that. Maybe your are okay with something that treats intestinal worms that you heard about on the internets (social media). But, come on. Don't you understand that if everyone that is eligible gets vaccinated we can eradicate COVID-19?

Be careful out there.
Get vaccinated!
Wear a mask!
