Y'all still running on with this nonsense? Over 60% of us are unvaxx, already survived 2 years of this nonsense with or without the flu, and besides that the population have increased, not shrink. But then again no one is concerned with facts, only parroting, trying to sound smart, fear and money. All this cut throat nonsense has us in this quagmire of a mess in the first place.
