I dispute your first sentence

I have never indicated that those for whom the vaccine is contra-indicated (auto-immune, pregnant, etc.) should take one. If that is your takeaway from my posts, I suggest you review them. In fact I have been fairly vocal about the fact that because there is such a large population of medically ineligible people, it means we cannot ignore the plight of the unvaccinated when considering regulations and safety (some people argue we should just 'let her rip' through the unvaccinated since all the rational people are vaccinated already, which to me is immoral because the unvaccinated, whether by circumstance or choice, are still worthy of societal protection).

While it is a personal moral decision, and only the individual can know their medical situation perfectly, it is a fact that 70% of the population of Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi cannot be in that situation. So any individual can duck and dodge and say they have some undiagnosed medical condition or fear, but over half the population of some of these states are just rationalizing away their susceptibility to FUD and selfishness regarding public safety.

Maybe you have some condition, that is your conscience to bear, not mine. But most people refusing vaccination right now have either been fooled into believing it is much more dangerous than it actually is, just want to virtue-signal to their own tribe, or just can't be bothered to take 30 minutes out of their day to protect society. Unfortunately so many of them feel guilty about it that they feel the need to convince others not to take the vaccine as well so they won't be alone. Being told they SHOULD take the vaccine has put them into a state of mind where they WILL NEVER take one because you can't tell me what to do or some similar hissy fit that is being pandered to by a large ecosystem of similar adult children all looking to provide emotional support to each other for their mass hissy fit.
