Have you noticed how almost every story about Covid vaccines includes pictures or video of folks being jabbed by needles? Last night I saw a segment on the 11 o’clock news about vaccine myths and hesitancy; the accompanying clips included at least a dozen close-ups of needles sinking deep into people’s arms.
Why keep presenting that image?
In an effort to get more people vaccinated, and on the off-chance a good chunk of folks might be anxious about needles, wouldn’t it make sense NOT to show these close-ups over and over and over again? Just a suggestion.
And while I’m at it..
Cities in Oregon and Washington State are facing the very real possibility of renewed lock-downs because of a “4th surge.” Variants are ravaging India, Mexico and other countries. This Covid beast is still alive and well.
Next Thursday marks two weeks post second Moderna shot for my husband and me.. I’ve been calling it my liberation day and I am counting down!
I already have plans..lots of them..because (heaven forbid) what if this freedom I’m about to experience is simply the eye of the Covid hurricane? What if there’s a backside to this storm? Who knows how long the protection from this vaccine even lasts?
Not to be pessimistic, but we’re going out to “play” my friends …. while we can!
