The Road to Hitler is Paved with… Masks and Vaccines?
The next time a healthcare worker or educator is attacked by a “freedom-loving” anti-vaxxer, it’s reasonable to wonder who convinced the assailant that life-saving public health measures are in fact a ruse to pave the way for the next Hitler. Warning: This article contains offensive images about the Holocaust and sexual assault.

No idea why uninsured people would avoid vaccination for that reason - the vaccine is free.

I wonder what proportion of uninsured people are uninsured by choice: They fear or don't trust the medical system, don't like doctors, hate getting shots, etc.: Those people who wouldn't go under any circumstances for any reason. We sort of always assume that "uninsured" means "can't get insurance" but I know there are other reasons.

I hated the dentist my family used in high school so starting when I went away to college, never saw a dentist for 18 years, even though at a couple of places we had Cadillac medical & dental & vision. Cost wasn't the issue.

When I finally did go to a dentist again: zero cavities. The previous guy always found something to drill out.

I can't figure it out either. Maybe the fear of costs when confronted with (possible or imagined) side effects?

We have insurance and access, so getting vaccinated was no big deal. But all my interactions with the pharmacy and vaccination points have been pretty clear about they will use our insurance, but it is not necessary. The vaccines are available to anyone with or without insurance at no cost to them (like a lot of the testing).  I think I've seen this in a lot of outreach as well.

So is this just an education thing (educating the uninsured), or are they not being reached by this information? Or are they suspect of free services?  I don't understand why this is a problem unless it's maybe just a high correlation with uninsured and other factors.

I'd say both are likely true. Biggest group being the uninsured (not political with overlap), followed by Republicans (political), rurals (mixed) & white evangelicals (political)...

An aside: it is interesting and, perhaps, revealing that those who remain unvaccinated apparently are predominantly/overwhelmingly conservative. Yet we hear that the reasons for not getting vaccinated are varied and often specific to the individual — not political or ideological.

We are having an estate sale for an aunt who passed away with no children, and the very first exchange this morning went something like this....
(the scene: Southern New Jersey 55+ community... the county we're in is 76% vaccinated for the 65+ crowd.)

70+ woman walks into the garage and says to my wife "I don't need to wear a mask, do it"?

Wife:  "why no, we're vaccinated, and I'm assuming you are as well"

woman:  "No, I'm not vaccinated, I don't want them to kill me with those shots".

wife: "aren't you more worried about getting sick?"

woman: "The virus won't kill me, but the vaccines will".

wife: "who told you that?

woman: "everyone says so, and that's what they say on Fox News"

wife: "I think you might want to find a new source of information"

Amazing to hear her conviction that the vaccines would kill her, but the virus wasn't that dangerous.  This town is slightly more "rural" than where we live...and the difference is staggering to behold.
