I’m very concerned that people who aren’t vaccinated will stop taking precautions.   It we also have free will to make personal decisions that affect us.  I worry less about masks than about sick people going out and spreading the illness because they aren’t concerned about it.

don't forget, many people who have COVID are completely asymptomatic but can still spread it (especially young people). Even the symptomatic ones are usually infectious for a few days before they get symptoms. The good news is that as more and more get vaccinated, the disease spread as well as serious conditions will continue to diminish.

I’m wearing a mask when I shop or going to appointments but that will change. Since we don’t know for certain, it seems wise to take the safest options.  I don’t like it, but I do it.

Our vaccination rate went so high they closed down big vax sites and are begging people to get shots,

I also don’t listen to experts just because they are on the news all the time.

Yeah I think most States have pivoted from the big sites (where I got mine) to smaller ones like CVS and Walgreens. NM has done that and invited groups like churches and clubs to schedule events - they help coordinate and provide the vaccinators.

Why the world’s most vaccinated country is seeing an unprecedented spike in coronavirus cases

As the Seychelles began to offer free coronavirus vaccinations early this year, President Wavel Ramkalawan told reporters that the country was planning to reach herd immunity within weeks.

It was an ambitious target for a small, geographically isolated island nation in the Indian Ocean. But with its economy heavily reliant on tourism, the country called in favors to attain a vaccine supply from regional allies, including India and the United Arab Emirates.

The effort initially seemed to be a success. The Seychelles stands as the most vaccinated nation on Earth, with more than 60 percent of its population fully vaccinated, more than other vaccine giants such as Israel and Britain, and almost twice the United States’ rate of vaccination.

But that success has been undermined this week as the Seychelles has found itself with its largest number of new coronavirus cases per capita, and has been forced to reinstate a number of restrictions.

That’s more efficient on a small scale.  They will need to set up a system for booster shots. The Pfizer will need a third dose.

Maybe reasons, nothing to do with vaccines.
