An unvaccinated Louisiana man contracted COVID-19 which wound up causing severe pneumonia requiring hospitalization for several months. He was finally released this week and was interviewed by a journalist. He insisted that he would rather get COVID *again* than get vaccinated against it. He said "don't shove it down my throat!" and insisted that it was the government's agenda to get everyone vaccinated. . . as if the government is trying to HARM people. He spent months in the hospital as a result of COVID (there is no information about whether he was ever put on a ventilator) and would rather go through it again than prevent it. Man these people are stupid. I think Louisiana needs to invest some more money in science education. This guy is a future Darwin Award winner.
A man who has been hospitalized after coming down with the novel coronavirus told CBS News on Wednesday that he would rather suffer from the disease all over again rather than get vaccinated.According to CBS News, Louisiana resident Scott Rowe first got si

In my country, many people like this refuse to vaccinate, because they are consumed by the growing hoax news, and claim that many people die after being vaccinated, which is really not true, because vaccines will reduce symptoms in the body. because my husband and i were vaccinated in march and april, we caught covid in june, and it caused only mild symptoms. now i'm healthy

I get where you're coming-from on this---the vaccines are fully tested & approved. But I also get where the guy's coming-from on this---what with all The Bible'against 'accepting The Mark before you can buy or sell.' Comedian George Carlin made fun of vaccines, because he strengthened his immune system by swimming in raw sewage at an early age. Looks like this guy's sorta got the same idea.

The last time I checked this was still a free country. If someone wants to make a choice to not get vaccinated, that is that person's choice. Why are we using this vaccination as some sort of hammer to force people to the government's will, and when as a country did we reach a place where we even considered ACCEPTING this? And besides, he now has ANTIBODIES that may prevent him from getting Covid again. Not always the case. Some people have had it twice. One of our own had it twice. BUT, vaccinated people have ALSO gotten Covid DESPITE getting vaccinated. The fact that MOST of this vaccine push is coming from the left is BIZARRE! The next time someone shouts "My body, my choice," I am just going to come right out and say what I have always wanted to say. "Go to hell." You are all a bunch of goody-two-shoed hypocrites. Y'all are only for choice when it is a choice you want US to make. Thanks to the left I even have to flush my poop twice just to get it to go down since we are supposed to be conserving water flushed right back into the river it came from. Absurdity never ends.

As I said below to Lori I don't think it should mandatory to be vaccinated. I just think it is crazy that this guy went through all of that and now isn't taking advantage of an opportunity to protect himself. And at least you don't have to flush 15 times like Trump claimed he had to do.

@NJChicaa Well, maybe not 15 times. That is true. As for mandatory vaccination, it is unconstitutional, and for that reason alone I cannot and will not support it. Besides, we're not talking about Polio here or even the Spanish flu for crying out loud. You want me to be forced to vaccinate against something I am statistically unlikely to get, let alone die from it if I do?

@NJChicaa If my employer forced me to vaccinate, I would quit immediately.

He's free to make his own choices; but I certainly would not want to go through all that again.

All I can think is that hospital he was in must do really great food.

It is his choice if he does not want to get vaccinated. No one can force anyone to have it. Let us just respect his decision about it and hopefully if he does get it he won't infect others because of his refusal to protect himself.

Everyone is going to make their own choice, weather they understand the science (which by the way isn't exact) or not. The vaccines will be in trails for a few more years before they become approved by the FDA. So it's his choice to take the risks he does.
