Here are some critically important basic scientific facts:
*Over six hundred thousand (600,000) people have died from COVID, just in the U.S. (more than 4 million worldwide).
* Black people have died from COVID at a higher rate than others in the U.S.
* The vaccines are very effective against serious illness and death. Today, more than 90 percent of the people seriously ill and dying from COVID have not had vaccines (are unvaccinated).
* The vaccines are very safe. Tens of millions of people have gotten the vaccines in this country, overwhelmingly without any serious negative “side effects.”
* Hospitals around the country are strained to the limit with unvaccinated people who are seriously ill and dying from COVID, to the point where these hospitals often can’t deal with patients with other serious conditions, including some emergencies like heart attacks and strokes.
If you are someone who influences people, and you don’t know the scientific truth about COVID vaccines—how they are crucial for saving lives and dealing with this pandemic—the least you can do is not spread dangerous disinformation about this. Just shut up about vaccines until you get real scientific knowledge about this.
That goes for you, Nicki “Mirage”—and any similar swollen-headed “celebrities” and assorted hustlers, posers, pimps, and other ignorant fools who are out there spreading ridiculous rumors and anti-scientific garbage about the vaccines—singing the same tune as those racist, woman-hating fascists in the Republican Party and professional liars on Fox “News,” who’d be happy to see a lot more Black people, and other people of color, dying.
