Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.
By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
This week’s provocative question is about COVID-19 vaccinations. I know that four months ago, in this Provocative Question post, I asked if you’d gotten vaccinated for COVID-19 yet. My question this week is similar, but different.
I know that many of us were hoping that COVID-19 would be behind us by now, given the widespread availability of free vaccinations to protect us from this potentially deadly disease that brought the United States, and most other countries around the globe, to its knees in 2020. But it’s not behind us.
COVID-19 cases are back on the rise in the U.S., with a disproportionate number new cases among unvaccinated people in Southern and Appalachian states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Florida, and West Virginia, where vaccination rates are low.
Further, the rise of the delta variant of the virus is rapidly speeding transmission among those who haven’t been fully vaccinated, and that variant accounts for more than half of all new COVID-19 cases in the U.S.
So my provocative question is simply this…
Are you fully vaccinated against COVID-19 yet? And if not, why the fuck not?
