  1. Wow sounds like the vaccination was akin to a religious experience for this guy. Vaccinated people can still be infected with, and pass on the virus. It’s amazing how worked up these libs get haha, hilarious.

    1. Yes, it’s true that people can still be infected and pass on the virus, but it’s also true that it’s much less likely to happen. It’s possible for people who wear seatbelts and have air bags in cars to get killed in an auto accident. Your reply suggests that there’s no point in using seatbelts and air bags. That’s actually not so hilarious.

      1. Your argument is invalid because you are comparing a vaccine to seat belts. Two different things. Perhaps if you compared the Small Pox Vaccine to the Covid vaccine, your argument would come across better. As for “much less likely to happen”, tell that to the country of Israel which has a 62% vaccination but many vaccinated are still contracting Covid. The reality is, the vaccine is NOT going to stop you from getting Covid. It will, however, reduce the probability that you will end up in the hospital or die from Covid.

  2. Not only did these unvaccinated pro athletes put the city of Boston at risk, they let down their teammates. Teammates who have worked so hard and together from Spring Training to get into the playoffs, win their division, before American League champions, and the ultimate prize World Series Champions. They also let down their fans and the City.

    1. This would only be valid if the vaccine kept the vaccinated from getting Covid. The vaccinated can still get it and need to keep using distancing protocols to avoid getting or spreading it. The unvaccinated get it but the symptoms are worse and the probability is higher they end up in the hospital.

      1. You’re also 3 times more likely to catch Covid if you’re unvaccinated than if you’re vaccinated. Once you get it, you can pass it as easily, but the vaccine does stop you from getting covid most of the time.
