Unfortunately I had to deal with a very similar situation. I told my friend that I would have to set a boundary where I don’t see them until Covid is no longer a major threat (which, for all we know, could be quite some time). The more you push them to get the shot, the more they will fight it. All you can control are your actions, which means staying away from your friend. Explain why you are choosing that route as nicely as possible. Eventually my friend did get the vaccine and was happy for it (and doesn’t know why they were so against it to begin with). You may get just as lucky.
COVID has killed millions of people, (young and old, healthy or otherwise) and some that do survive it, have health concerns long after (long COVID). Where are you getting the idea that it's not a threat? It's killed 800,000 in the USA alone. It's insulting to those that died and their families and the medical services risking their lives trying to keep people alive and safe. You know this so please, if you're a troll, get a life. If you are one of those anti-vaxxers, get an education. Such a dumb statement clearly dictates you are insufficient in either one or the other.
ok I'm vaccinated, but I can also still carry and give the virus. which means that, since you are vaccinated. you can also. the vaccination is meant to help you have less problems if you get it. of you wear your mask and are vaccinated you are as sage as you can be. just because your friend isn't vaccinated doesn't meant they are carrying the virus, and you should be safe anyway. if the unvaccinated are a big worry then they should all die of the virus if it is that deadly. if the vaccine was so great in the first place why did I get a booster or need one, if the first 2 shots are so great. I did my part, but these are questions you should ask.
