    Isn't this interesting?

    The report showed a surprising U-shaped correlation between willingness to get a Covid vaccine and education level - with the highest hesitancy among those least and most educated.

    The PhDs were even a little less likely than the least educated to get the vaccine.

    Having a Doctorate certainly is an indicator of someone being well educated. That has nothing to do with how smart they are.

    PhDs are a wide category. Please be more specific. My guess is the engineers are the problem. But I say so because I think Engineers are buttheads and deserve more shame than I get. (Also I am slightly intoxicated and I will be drinking more as the night goes on to handle my crippling pain and mental anguish whom I'm choosing to say is caused by engineers).

    Not that surprising really. People who spend a lot of time in offices and little teams probably feel a certain sense of safety in their small bubbles.

    We do but I am very disappointed in them for thinking in a small bubble. "Get vaccinated, cuz your students need you to be vaccinated as an example to them", that kind of mentality.
