Last week my husband and daughter had covid. Luckily the symptoms were mild – similar to a cold. They both lost their sense of taste and smell. I was cooking my butt off making some wonderful meals but I was the only one that could enjoy them.
Throughout the whole ordeal, I never got sick. I tested myself twice and was negative both times.
I was the only one in the house who got the booster. My husband refused and my daughter is too young.
I received my booster shot in Chicago when I was away at treatment. I remember that night I called my husband to tell him about it and I also encouraged him to get it as well. My husband responded with a conspiracy theory regarding the booster shot and said he wasn’t going to get it.
I was shocked. My husband is very progressive. He wouldn’t be caught dead watching Fox News.
I don’t remember the specifics of the theory – something about the shot being ineffective and only out to make the pharmaceutical companies money.
Okay – greedy pharmaceutical companies is pretty believable, however, I totally trust the science behind the shots.
So maybe I’m opening a can of worms here, but how do you feel about the shots?
Also, do you know any other conspiracy theories progressives may believe in?
