5. The really fucked up part is that they feel the need to do so in secrecy.

Yes it may feed a narrative that "unvaccinated" people aren't getting sick. The bigger issue is that this situation continues to be so politicized that people are afraid to be honest.

I mean, no one hides the fact they they got the Polio vaccine, or Measles, or the Flu shot. Why is it that COVID-19 vaccines are the exception?

Media, particularly right wing media AND right wing politicians lying about the vaccine and spreading doubt. That is the big difference that makes the exception.

We are obviously hamstrung by the First Amendment, in dealing with these assholes, but something has to be done about the lying for political gain.
