- I know more people who’ve gotten COVID
- I know more people who’ve gotten the vaccine.
- I know the same number of each
Well, after 9 months and counting, the end is in sight. Pretty soon, tens of millions of people will be immune to the novel coronavirus one way or the other. In your personal life, do you know more people who’ve contracted COVID or gotten the shot?
“Know” means someone whose name you know, who knows your name, and whom you could pick out of a crowd. Hearing that your third cousin, whom you’ve never met, got the vaccine doesn’t count.
“Contracted COVID” means anyone with a positive test or clinical diagnosis, regardless of symptoms or, ahem, outcome.
“Gotten the vaccine” means at least one dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
Me? I know 6 people who got sick and 4 people who got vaccinated. 5 of those 6 are in the same household.
