Not surprised, the amount of people my age (23F) who don't think they need to get vaccinated is alarming.

For the week that ended Dec. 18, 375 of every 100,000 unvaccinated L.A. County residents tested positive. The rate for those who are vaccinated but have not gotten a booster shot was 173 per 100,000. The rate among boosted residents was 65 per 100,000.

Despite the ballooning infection numbers, far fewer patients have been hospitalized with COVID-19 so far in this fifth surge than during the last two surges.
