Long time reader, long time amateur VAX researcher, brother of RN who's worked in covid units. Whom before was still in school, was taking care of 12 patients in a covid unit, one day and said just "knew she got infected" aaand she did.
She came up with the idea of purposefully "accidentally" texting a random number, saying they got a new number, asking if they got vaccinated. When the person says it's the wrong number, and didn't get vaccinated, because they are on the fence she could use her knowledge and credentials to hopefully sway them. She hasn't done it much as her schedule is kind of nuts.
Coincidentally my sister's next door neighbor has become one of the countries top covid researchers. Three doctorates. One in genetics. He's leading a team that has found a gene linked to the cytokine storm. Possibly preparing a medical teams for it.
Luckily my parents-and me (father has comorbidies) has not been infected. They're fully vaccinated + 2 boosters. I use high quality E95 (BNX) masks. Great for protection, and also great for allergies too. People look at me weird for using them outside but hey, ten mins outside without one in spring usually starts allergy problems. Though I do admit, getting an allergy mask would probably still work.
My mother's best friend and her husband got infected and died before the vaccine.
I've been fighting misinformation as much as I can. One of the keys is not insulting or insinuating they're stupid. It might not effect them immediately but it might have an effect later down the line. Ignore other subjects they bring up like Faucci. He made mistakes but he's not relevant to the vaccine subject itself. Insulting them also looks bad on the whole pro-vaccine community. Even if they call you idiots and post youtube videos from morons, merely address individual subjects with information without calling the person in the video well...morons. Not only does it give them less ammo to create comebak insults, which can change the subject. They key is to try to get them to the point where they stop going back and forth with you, and insulting gets in the way of that. Hammer them with facts till they run out of steam because, I promise you, there are others watching the thread
