I don’t think people should judge.
I don’t think people who don’t want the vaccine should judge those who do.
I don’t think people who do want the vaccine should judge those who don’t.
I understand both sides of this equation. As I started talking about possible vaccine issues almost a year ago, I have really thought this one out.
I believe in vaccinations for diseases that can be eradicated.
Vaccines for flu, etc. not so much. No flu shots. No pneumonia shots.
But that’s me…
When it came to COVID- a worldwide phenomena- I decided to err on the side of caution and made the decision to become vaccinated when I was eligible.
My Husband and Daughter also chose this route. Her University announced last week that the vaccination will be required for all those returning to campus in the fall. We were not surprised at all.
My Mother is against the vaccine. I will not argue this with her. I will not tell her she’s wrong. I will not guilt her. This is her opinion.
What I don’t like are the Facebook things she keeps sending to my Facebook messenger acount.
Yesterday, she sent a video of some Doctor. Her message to me was:
I pray you watch this
Let’s start with the basics. I received my first shot four weeks ago, my second yesterday.
I can’t eliminate the vaccine from my body. There is a no return policy with the vaccine. You own it for life. To send me this is irrational. It’s a done deal.
To give the people you love grief about something they’ve done is just not right.
To make someone feel guilty about a choice that they have made is wrong on so many levels.
So my message to you all is simple:
Don’t make people feel guilty.
The past year has been tough. Don’t make it tougher with words and videos.
