Education and wealth weigh in on Michigan vaccination rates

Since spring, vaccination rates have diminished in Michigan and across much of the country. A new report suggests that how well-off people are has an impact on those numbers.

Efforts such as Michigan’s $5 million vaccine lottery and President Biden’s vaccine mandate for large companies have made a dent, but Bridge Michigan reports that only 137,000 state residents were vaccinated in the last month. In the month of May, that number was $1.6 million.

The state’s vaccination rate has held at 52% of those 16 and older, which is under the national average.

Political leanings aside, numbers suggest that rural and urban poverty areas generally have lower vaccination rates than the affluent, more educated areas.

“educated” does not mean smart, not anymore.

It should come as a surprise to nobody that the people without a college indoctrination are taking a pass on the experimental injection. Rural residents tend to be more self sufficient and think for themselves, while the people in urban poverty centers (mostly minorities) have good reason to not trust the government when it comes to injections. Remember the Tuskegee experiment?

The only people foolish enough to take the shot are indoctrinated urban liberals.
