Oh, you fools. You thought a vaccine would bring back normality. Pfft. You must be illiterate. You probably also believe that climate change isn’t an existential threat to humanity. You probably even like meat. Rube!
Thankfully, St. Dr. Anthony Fauci is here to tell us all the truth:
Even when vaccines are released, they should as a compliment, not a substitute, to other public health measures, he said.
That’s in part because it’s not yet known if the vaccines will offer sterilizing immunity or just protecting individuals from getting sick themselves, allowing them to inadvertently become asymptomatic spreaders of the virus, he said.
“We will know that, ultimately, but we don’t know that now,” Fauci said. “My feeling is: When my turn comes to get vaccinated, I will not abandon all public health measures. Clearly, there will be a much greater ease in dropping back a bit on the stringency of it. But to just say: ‘We’re done with public health measures,’ it’s not going to be for a while. For those concerned, as I am, about the economy, about schools, about sports events, I think we’re going to be a major shift toward much more normality. But it might not be exactly the way it was in 2019.”
Hooray! Like 2020, 2021, and even 2022, will offer so many opportunities for me to signal how much I
hate love humanity! I can wear a mask everywhere I go! In fact, I can even wear a mask when I sleep! That’s how much I love people! Yippie! This is going to be such a great two years!

On a more serious note, I have a question: If the vaccine nullifies the effects of the virus, if it turns us all into “asymptomatic spreaders” then . . . why should we care about spreading it, exactly?Published in
