Yet another warning. Please get vaccinated


 

The delta variant is continuing to be a problem in places with high levels of unvaccinated individuals. All evidence so far shows that vaccinated individuals are protected against this variant. I just wanted to encourage any of you that are still not vaccinated to go get it done. This variant is more contagious and is killing healthy 20 and 30-year-olds. Even if you survive or get a mild infection, long covid is a result for 20% of those infected. Save yourself the trouble.
