Vaccine Misinformation Is At An All-Time High

A doctor in Alabama said that when unvaccinated patients died, their biggest regret was not getting vaccinated. "One of the last things they do before they're intubated is beg me for the vaccine. I hold their hand and tell them that I'm sorry, but it's too late."

Former anti-vaxxers and conspiracy theorists in Texas (and around the country) are encouraging their friends and family to get vaccinated. "I trust the science," said a former vaccine skeptic from Dallas, Texas. "I am now a full believer in vaccines, and I believe that the Covid vaccine is the way that we're going to end the pandemic."

Sadly, many people are dying and being hospitalized because vaccine misinformation is at an all-time high. According to a recent Associated Press investigation, a group of chiropractors is profiting from the pandemic by spreading fear and vaccine misinformation. They've marketed their supplements as vaccine alternatives, produced doctor's notes allowing patients to opt-out of vaccine mandates, and even hosted an anti-vaccine convention during the middle of a deadly pandemic. Quoting an article published by Fox News:

"Participants traveled from around the country to a Wisconsin Dells resort for a sold-out convention that was, in fact, a sea of misinformation and conspiracy theories about vaccines and the pandemic. The featured speaker was the anti-vaccine activist who appeared in the 2020 movie "Plandemic," which pushed false COVID-19 stories into the mainstream. One session after another discussed bogus claims about the health dangers of mask-wearing and vaccines."

Mark Friesen, a prominent critic of public health measures, is reportedly in the hospital battling for his life in Canada. "Mark got Covid and is actually intubated at this time," said Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson. "There are prayers going up for Mark, and we've seen remarkable things happen. We know this is a very serious situation, and so we won't sugarcoat that at all."

According to the CDC, "Millions of people in the United States have received COVID-19 vaccines under the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history." And while it's probable that you'll experience some side effects after getting vaccinated, they're probably going to be mild. It's also worth noting that getting vaccinated lowers your chances of being hospitalized due to Covid-19. So, if you haven't already, go to your local doctor or pharmacy as soon as possible to get a shot.
