@onepict The whole thing is really fucking dodgy
Brand the vaccines as the latest must-have consumer product, create competition among consumers - "which one did you have? oh, that's too bad, I had the best one, Pfizer"
Stigmatise people who haven't taken the vaccine - usually because they live in a poorer community and don't have access to online services and/or transport rather than because they're an "anti vaxxer"
Ratchet up the fear levels with "variants"
Add data tracking, job done
@onepict Bolton has low vaccination levels because they put the vaccination centre at the out-of-town football stadium, which is super easy to drive to in your private car but you need 2-3 bus changes to get there from the high-density poorer neighbourhoods of Bolton
But if you listen to the radio, it's because they're all a bunch of dyed-in-the-wool anti-vaxxers who don't know what's good for them
It's all really yuck
