  1. We need to stop focusing on trivial stuff. This virus is floating around and doing harm to our countrymen/women, lifestyle, economy and government services. We should be advocating for everyone to assume responsibility for their health and safety and that of their neighbors. I have taken both vaccines and the booster. I am aware that I can still contract and spread the virus. However, I believe the vaccine will not absolutely, but significantly reduce my chances of serious illness and death.
