Question for my COVID-vaccinated brethren on The Corner:

Most of you who have shared about getting the vaccine have seemed to be a lot more confident and secure about returning to a more normal lifestyle now that you've gotten the vaccine. In other words, I've gotten the impression that your vaccinated status has made you feel much less fearful of COVID.

If that impression is correct, then how have you gone about sharing that confidence with other COVID-vaccinated peers who remain fearful?

I'm asking because I have two aunts who are both still very afraid of COVID. Yet both have gotten vaccinated and came through that without a hitch. Even so, they make comments like "If I see anyone not wearing a mask, I just leave immediately, no matter what", which I interpret as them remaining fearful of COVID. Shouldn't they be really confident now that they're vaccinated? How does one encourage someone like that to be less afraid?

(Please understand, when I share that example of what they say, I'm not suggesting that they should support people being unmasked; rather I'm just mystified about the obvious fear they still have in being in the vicinity of someone who is unmasked.)
