Is it morally wrong to not get a COVID vaccine?

Morally wrong? No. Ethically wrong, kind of.

Translation: I am an ignorant man child unwilling to acknowledge overwhelming evidence, because it would require that I acknowledge my own ignorance. My narcissism won't allow this. I have decided to pretend I'm not an idiot, which I know I am, and selfishly endanger others rather than come to terms with being an imbecile.

It's just stupid not to get it. You can argue that the flu vaccine each year isn't worth getting because there are so many variants of the flu that you have a low efficacy rate. The current COVID vaccines though (except for China's) have an effectiveness of 90+ percent, and even if you are in the 10% that get it, your symptoms will be a lot less. My neighbors got it and it ripped through their entire family over the course of 3 weeks. Each one of them pretty much said the same thing, "was the sickest I have ever been and I just wanted to die".

we live in history. you are unique. you live a specific, particular existence. your conscious experience is unique. you are valid. everyone else is also valid. you matter literally, in the sense that you exist. all of existence is permanently recorded in the fabric of history, even if only slightly, your actions are the fate of the world.

to go further: you have a say in the universe. you can mold it to your will, if only at a local level. you have some impact. some person drew the particular curve of the pharaoh's eye on the wall of the great pyramid. that could be you. we still don't have any idea how the egyptians build their pyramids.

if you have ever experienced meaning in the world, then meaning exists. if you think meaning inside your mind is insignificant, consider the fact that meaning can only exist in a mind, and especially your mind. how can you be sure there is any other mind out there?

lastly, why do you want to combat nihilist thoughts? that implies a philosophy. as if nihilism is bad and something else is good. how do you account for your value hierarchy? do you agree with it? Perhaps, if nihilism is bad, and something else is good, you can simply try out -- as an experiment -- doing what you consider to be "good".

good luck
