She lives in Korea where people are more obedient as a whole. She tells me people have their names in queues for when the vaccines are available for their age groups. It seems like 99% of the news involving Covid is getting to Korea via international news which is basically the mainstream narrative. There are a few people speaking out against it over there but, from my assessment, they are a super small minority that most brush off as lunatics. I relentlessly sent her tons of information for months about everything I've learned outside of the set narrative.
Of course she laughed it off at first. Hardly anybody in Korea is talking about the negative aspects. They mostly see the vaccines as a thing you obviously take when your turn arrives. Then, she got angry when I wouldn't stop talking about it. We've gotten into several shouting matches but, in the end, it was all worth it.
A week ago was when her age group was next in line. Yesterday, she told me she was having doubts about the vaccine. Apparently, she is seeing more and more posts about negative side effects popping up in the forums she frequents. I don't know what made her change her mind between me and the forum posts, but whatever it was, I'm glad she's not at least just going to blindly accept the vax.
Thought I'd share.
