With the arrival of ambulances with bodies for cremation once or twice a day, nearly every day of the week including Holidays and weekends, we are constantly reminded of just how close we are to the COVID-19 virus. For that reason, we have taken every precaution to protect our children.
Cambodia doesn’t have the same problems as some other countries, with protests and demonstrations against the vaccines… they are available to anyone who wants them, and most do, although there are a few who refuse to take them for a variety of reasons… some legitimate and others more ignorant or fear-based.
Our children are fearless, however, and for that reason, we had no difficulty getting them to jump into the truck and go to the local health center.
With this group finished we now have all but two Watopotians, over the age of six, who have received their second dose of the vaccination.
And so we can relax a bit until this crisis passes, knowing we have done all we can to protect ourselves and others.
I do understand the reasoning behind some of the anti-vaxxer’s resistance but much of the information they are receiving is flawed. I heard one report that said the vaccine will cause brain damage in the long run… but judging from some of the people being interviewed, the damage has already been done.
