The major objection to all this? People who think this infringes on their rights.” But on the way to Walmart, they had to drive 30 mph. They couldn’t park in a handicapped space. And they can’t just eat the cheese balls in the store. Their rights can’t harm others.

Herd immunity is just herd thinning. And that assumes we understand how immunity works. Which we don’t. I’m not willing to lose 500,000 mostly older and low-income people. And subjecting tens of millions with chronic illness to protect a right you didn’t know you had three months ago.
