For those of you who never read anything I write and don’t bother to look at my handle, I’m a nurse.
In the bedside nursing community right now, it is hard to find anyone who is a moderate on anything COVID-related. There are people (mostly) vehemently for lock-downs, masking, mandatory vaccinations and then there are the other people that believe that there’s a conspiracy, the vaccines are inherently evil, the vaccines change DNA and are designed to control society. In between, in the silent corners of the break-room (appropriately socially distanced, of course), there are the moderate people.
Vaccines generally help. Yes, there are side effects. No, they can’t advertise all of them. Yes, for some people it’s worth it. No, it’s not worth it for everyone. No, it’s probably not a conspiracy. Yes, the government stands to lose a lot of money if people don’t get vaccinated.
It is hard to hear the probable truth: it’s all probably somewhere in between. ZDoggMD, Dr. Zubin Damiana, is a part of the Moderate Majority and he is committed to giving it a voice.
In the following video, the Delta Variant is explained really, really well along with why lockdowns might not work and why the models are wrong and why it isn’t a crazy, nut-job, science-denier belief to hold that they are. He also expresses the frustration of many parents watching our kids be harmed by these lockdowns.
And he’s a real doctor. Not a Dr. Oz doctor. He’s an actual medical doctor. He actually practices. He actually doesn’t sell non-FDA approved supplements.
We need to give strength and volume to his voice and his opinion, the opinions that many reasonable, science-minded, good, caring people hold.
