The Cost of Unvaccination ($$$$)

The decision not to vaccination has added $2.3 billion to medical spending in the US since June of this year. That’s $800 million plus per month this summer.

Estimates suggest there were 37,000 preventable hospitalizations in June and 76,000 in July, at an average cost of $20,000.

That cost will show up in budget deficits and your health insurance costs in the future. Count on it. Someone has to pay the bill, and the unvaccinated are getting a semi-free ride at the expense of the rest of us.

So the next time you see a vax denier, ask for their email address so you can send them a bill.
