Refusing a vaccine for Covid-19 only raises all of our taxes. Money that is spent on taking care of the Covid-19 problems and patients, whether it be the services of hospitals, public health, other medical supports, monitoring, cleaning and etc., takes away from money we all have to spend on education, food, fun and many other items we need and want. There is no way to avoid be affected by the expenses of Covid-19. Be smart, get the vaccine.
