@elijah.neumann Vaccines are an important layer of protection. They’re good at reducing hospitalization and death, but not as good at preventing transmission. Their efficacy wanes after several months, too. Even if they were better at preventing transmission, only 18% of US adults are up to date on the vaccine. Respirators are another important layer of protection and are effective at reducing transmission.
I’d like to encourage you to reflect on your last sentence. Disabled and immunocompromised people deserve to share in moments of joy like anyone else, without risking their health further. I believe we should take steps to make events like this accessible and wearing masks is a simple step towards that.
