Yes, there are COVD vaccines out now. Yes, people are getting vaccinated (at least in the US).
But there are a lot of people who aren’t vaccinated just yet and there are a lot of variant cases as well.
So please, please, please just keep waiting.
Keep waiting to get back to “normal.” I know we all want “normal,” especially now that it’s somewhat in reach, but now is not the time to jump the gun and pretend everything is fine just yet.
‘Cause it’s not.
You may be one of the people who has gotten your first vaccine. Hell, you might be one of the people that’s fully vaccinated.
But again, most people aren’t in either of those groups yet. And again, there are a lot of variant cases as well.
If you’re vaccinated, you can still catch COVID. And what’s possibly worse is that YOU CAN STILL SPREAD IT TO OTHERS. The chances are a lot lower, but it’s still possible.
You know those people who aren’t vaccinated yet? You could infect them. You could maybe kill them.
So chill the fuck out.
You do not need to get that pedicure right now. You do not need to hang out at the mall right now. You do not need to throw that party right now. You do not need to travel right now.
Your selfishness is going to make this last even longer than it already has. You’re going to hurt people just because you think you’re protected. You’re going to make people wait even longer than they already have to be able to safely see their families.
Just wait. Be patient.
It sucks, but it’ll suck a lot more for a lot more people if you don’t just wait.
