The Risks of Not Being Vaccinated
There are a variety of risks associated with not being vaccinated, both to the individual and to the community as a whole. Vaccine-preventable illnesses such as measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella can have severe consequences, especially for young children and infants. Being unvaccinated also puts unnecessary strain on the healthcare system, as those who are sickened by preventable diseases often require hospitalization and other costly medical treatments. Finally, unvaccinated individuals pose a threat to the health of others, particularly those who are unable to receive vaccinations due to medical conditions or weakened immune systems.
The Consequences of Not Being Vaccinated
There are a number of possible consequences for not being vaccinated. These can range from mild to severe, and in some cases, can even be deadly.
Some of the most common diseases that can be prevented by vaccines, such as measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), can cause severe illness or even death in some people. Other less common but still serious diseases like polio and meningitis can also have devastating consequences if someone contracts them and is not vaccinated. Even diseases that are more mild, like chickenpox, can cause serious complications in some people, particularly infants, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems. In short, there is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to the risks of not being vaccinated – it depends on a number of factors including the disease in question, the person’s age and health status, and more.
That said, it’s important to remember that vaccines are one of the most effective and safest ways to prevent disease. They have saved countless lives and have helped to eradicate diseases like smallpox that once killed millions of people. Vaccines are also rigorously tested before they are approved for use, so you can be confident that they are safe for most people.
Who Is Not Vaccinated?
There are a few players on the Yankees who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19. Among them are pitchers Zack Britton and Aroldis Chapman, infielder Gio Urshela, and outfielder Aaron Hicks. All four have said that they have personal reasons for not getting the vaccine and that they respect the decision of those who have.
Why Are They Not Vaccinated?
There are a few reasons why some of the Yankees players have not been vaccinated yet.
Some of the players might not have been in the country when the vaccine became available. other players may have had medical conditions that prevented them from getting the vaccine or may have been pregnant. There also may be player who simply don’t want to get the vaccine.
Whatever the reason, it is important to remember that everyone has their own personal preferences and beliefs. It is ultimately up to each individual to decide whether or not they want to be vaccinated.
The Bottom Line
The Yankees have not said who is and is not vaccinated, but they have given some indication that many players are not vaccinated.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the team said: “The New York Yankees are aware of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) most recent guidance regarding the coronavirus vaccine and viruses in general. We will continue to consult with our medical staff and we will make decisions about vaccinations for our players and staff on an individual basis.”
This statement came after the CDC released new guidance on Monday saying that people who are fully vaccinated can go without wearing a mask indoors or outdoors, except in certain crowded settings like concerts or sporting events.
The Yankees did say that they “remain committed to protecting the health and safety of our players, employees and fans,” and that they “will continue to follow the CDC’s guidelines.”
