Something original every month.
Welcome to the summer of 2021, which oddly seems just like the summer of 2020.
There is an assumption that the people of Oregon are liberal hippies. Considering that only 52% of our population is fully vaccinated, despite numerous manners of ease to get the doses and even giving away money, 48% of the state's residents believe that the science doesn't matter.
This week alone, we have had more than 1,000 new cases daily. We haven't hit those numbers since this time last year. of course, much of this is due to the Delta variant, which, of course, mutated from those unvaccinated.
It will get worse before it gets better. As someone who has worked with public health, disease prevention and outreach for decades, especially concerning hot button political topics (see my page here about syphilis prevention to get an idea), no matter how much truth and evidence you give someone, they still have to make up their minds.
The worst kind of vice is advice, but to those who choose to listen: protect yourself, because statistically, almost half of the people around you could care less. At least that is the case in Oregon.
One of these is visually more subtle than the other, but both have simple messaging and links to online resources.

Love to you all.
