These people mock "anti-vaxxers" of being ignorant and incapable of understanding the science, yet the promote a number of falsehoods, including:

  1. Every unvaccinated person is someone who is opposed to vaccines. In fact some are unable to get it for a variety of reasons.
  2. Every unvaccinated person will end up in hospital if they get covid. In fact the vast majority of people under 60 will have a mild case or be asymptomatic and will not end up in hospital, even if they get the Indian variant.
  3. Hospitals are filling up with young people and they're at greater risk of dying. In fact younger people are generally not dying of covid, there's only been a slight increase for people aged 40 to 59.
  4. Being vaccinated means full protection and immunity. In fact effectiveness is wearing off and for some people vaccines provides no protection because of underlying health issues.
  5. Comorbidities is an "anti-vaxxer" myth. In fact comorbidities are a significant contributing factor that have been discussed in numerous peer reviewed scientific journals.
  6. Unvaccinated all pose a risk. In fact unvaccinated people may have immunity due to recovery from covid and so may have equal or more protection and less likely to spread covid than fully vaxxed people.
  7. Vaccines are contributing lower case counts. Explain Israel, which has high case counts despite high vaccination rate, or India which has relatively low case counts despite low vaccination rate. India in fact overcame the last wave without the help of vaccines and possibly in part with the help of ivermectin.

They also can't explain why PHDs are so hesitant about the vaccines and why a large portion of nurses (who work with the sick) refuse to take the jab.
