They literally work every day with very ill cancer-stricken kids who can't get the vaccine.
This makes 100% sense.

In a surprise move this month, the left-wing leadership of Marseille announced its intent to buy the building, effectively legalizing the food bank and preventing its closure by police.
On a recent Monday, hundreds of people lined up outside Après M for the food bags being handed out by the volunteers.
One of the helpers, Ouarda Gattouchi, said part of the team’s mission was to share positivity with those who showed up. “They come without a smile, but they leave with one,” she said.

Remember when the pandemic started and some people were really into baking bread?
Lots of people embraced the comfort of sourdough to get them through the frightening first months of the pandemic. Ironically, the reason we can eat bread at all is because thousands of years ago a virus helped us develop a new enzyme that made it easier to digest carbohydrates.
Viruses have developed hand-in-hand with humankind, sometimes — as we’ve seen with COVID-19 — to deadly effect. Humans have fought back, developing in the process the concept of vaccines, with the first effective, modern vaccine coming on the scene more than 200 years ago.
Today’s COVID-19 vaccines work in much the same way as those early inoculations but are safer and more effective. It’s true that they were developed with historic speed — but only because they were built on decades of basic research that allowed us to deliver them in record time.

Image is tweet from @ davekronig which reads:
Hi hello, it's me, your immunocompromised friend. I'm fully vaxxed but still gonna be wearing masks for a long time because there's insufficient data to know whether the vaccine will actually protect me. Please be kind about it and don't make me justify my caution.
End image description

With the CDC updating guidelines today it’s a great time to remind ourselves that there’s literally never a good reason to ever shame another person for their choice to wear a mask.

Pay attention. Blatant pandering to the worst of their bases while constituents suffer and die.

The Covid19 pandemic truly is a microcosm for the banal stupidity and shortsightedness of capitalism. Let’s break it down.
Rich countries are buying & manufacturing vaccines while developing countries cannot manufacture their own due to patent law, this prolongs the pandemic
While pandemic is prolonged, new virus mutations risk emerging and making existing vaccine protection (including in rich countries) obsolete
Pharma companies that own and produce the vaccine continue to refuse to make the vaccines patent-free, for profit
Profit that will be dwarfed by the economic costs (both short-term and long-term) should the above mutation scenarios occur
You can disregard the ethical/humane side of this entirely and just look at the business side and it's still so utterly fucking stupid.
