The Alabama doctor that put a notice on his door that he would not longer see unvaccinated patients and would transfer their records, stated as one of his reasons being that a Covid death is a horriable way to die and that he was ‘tired of watching people die from an avoidable disease.’ …Jim W.

Dying in the Name of Vaccine Freedom https://t.co/Mtv1JpsyS5

In the video above, Alexander Stockton, a producer on the Opinion Video team, explores one of the main reasons the number of Covid cases is soaring once again in the United States: vaccine hesitancy and refusal.
“It’s hard to watch the pandemic drag on as Americans refuse the vaccine in the name of freedom,” he says.
Seeking understanding, Mr. Stockton travels to Mountain Home, Ark., in the Ozarks, a region with galloping contagion and — not unrelated — abysmal vaccination rates.
He finds that a range of feelings and beliefs underpins the low rates — including fear, skepticism and a libertarian strain of defiance.
This doubt even extends to the staff at a regional hospital, where about half of the medical personnel are not vaccinated — even while the intensive care unit is crowded with unvaccinated Covid patients fighting for their lives.
Mountain Home — like the United States as a whole — is caught in a tug of war between private liberty and public health. But Mr. Stockton suggests that unless government upholds its duty to protect Americans, keeping the common good in mind, this may be a battle with no end.
