I’m sure they’re glad they had a vaccine mandate:
Let’s go through them one-by-one:
Princeton one month ago boasted that it had “few Covid cases” and that it had an extremely high vaccination rate:
As the state of New Jersey has reported increases in new COVID-19 infections and transmission rates, Princeton case numbers have remained steady at an average between one and one-and-a-half cases per day, according to the Princeton Health Department.
Princeton Deputy Administrator for Health and Community Services Jeff Grosser reported on Tuesday a “consistent stream of positive cases” without significant increases or decreases in numbers. The Health Department on Monday announced 12 new COVID-19 cases in Princeton in the previous seven days and 19 new cases in the previous 14 days.
“The Health Department has tracked recent cases linked back to Halloween social gatherings leading to subsequent household outbreaks,” Grosser said. “But due to Princeton’s high vaccination rate (82 percent of those 18 years and older, 100 percent of those 65 and older) the cases we’re seeing are predominantly previously vaccinated individuals with mild or no symptoms at all.”
So at least 82% of students vaccinated.
Also, we cannot allow these people to get away with sentences like that last one in bold. Well thanks to the vaccine, the cases we’re seeing are mild or asymptomatic!
They have already succeeded in shifting the goalposts here on the definition of vaccine and the bar it must clear to be considered successful.
A vaccine is supposed to make you immune.
I don’t care that the vaccine lowers your risk of dying of Covid. You know what else lowers your risk of dying of Covid? Not being fat and having a bunch of health problems.
A successful vaccine is one that prevents transmission. Period. No exceptions.
Look, if the vaccine makes it less likely that an older or unhealthy person who catches Covid survives, that is wonderful. I’m happy about that. I don’t want people dying of Covid. Plus, it should, in theory, make our government less prone to overreacting when the virus starts spreading rapidly, because they should know that most of the people who get it won’t die.
If the vaccines do in fact prevent deaths, I am happy about that. Genuinely, I am. I am not a lib; I am not rooting for vaccinated people to die the way the libs are rooting for unvaccinated people to die.
But the fact is, they promised us the vaccine would stop transmission of Covid and that we could go back to normal. The vaccine has not stopped transmission of Covid, and we are not back to normal.
Yet are they are still demanding everyone get the vaccine anyway. This cannot be allowed to stand under any circumstances.
Okay, let’s move on to the next school: Cornell.
An article in the College Fix from September 4 of this year said that Cornell had a 95% vaccination rate. That was over 3 months ago, so it’s undoubtedly even higher today.
Cornell is now having outbreaks and has to cancel all major events and move final exams online.
Now for NYU: according to NYU’s website, the student body is 99% vaccinated, the faculty is 99% vaccinated, and the employees are 97% vaccinated:
George Washington does not have a helpful page on its website to easily track vaccination rates. NYU is the only school that offers that, actually.
But this story from just two days ago reported that GWU announced a booster shot mandate, indicating they already had a vaccine mandate in place before this. After all, you can’t mandate boosters if you haven’t already mandated the vaccine, right?
Please, tell me more about why we need a vaccine mandate for the whole nation. I’m dying to know.
“bEcAuSe iT sAvEs LiVeS!!!!!”
It doesn’t prevent the spread of Covid, though.
How do these Karens not understand that in a situation where a man going unvaccinated endangers no one but himself, people should have the right to decide whether or not they want to get the vaccine?
