Note 1) There is risk everywhere. We are usually not aware of it, but that doesn’t mean its not there. Safety is an illusion.
Note 2) When we choose to actively do something, we make a mental calculation about the risks and benefits. Again, this may happen on a subconscious level, but it happens nonetheless.
So that brings us to the COVID vaccine. Those who choose not to get it are essentially saying, “I think there’s more risk with the vaccine than there is with the virus.”
This doesn’t seem to be an educated decision, which leads me to my point.
Our decisions are only as good as the information we have and our ability to parse this information in an intelligent way.
Put another way: We can’t understand what we don’t know.
