"in the San Joaquin Valley...Vaccination rates are still relatively low, and in Fresno County, the region’s most populous county, the COVID-19 hospitalization rate is quadruple what is being seen in L.A. and Orange counties, and more than quintuple that of the San Francisco Bay Area."

Cause, meet Effect

Bakersfield had a nice, big vaccination clinic set up in the spring, but not enough people there took advantage of it. Now, they're paying the price.

Anyone who has ever worked in a understaffed hospital will happily help ease the load. It sucks when you aren't appropriately staffed. Also, they are likely not sending their COVID patients, they will be sending their other patients who need to be hospitalized.

I completely understand the "lets teach them a lesson" mentality but the staff AND non-covid patients are the ones really getting screwed here.

(Anti-vaxx) Central California is having an epidemic of COVID cases that are overwhelming its hospitals, so the counties want to send the overflow patients to LA - because LA (has behaved itself during the epidemic and) has a lot of available hospital beds.

Send those morons to church and google. They dont want to listen to doctors anyway.

Tell them that LA automatically gives you a vaccine as soon as you step foot in the county.

Get vaccinated you stupid fucks. I promise you it’s really not that hard. And it’s gonna be ok. Or die like this. Your choice, but do not flood our hospitals because you felt like you had to be a big boi and have your little “freedom”

Fuck that. You’re too stupid to get a readily available vaccine, don’t be clogging up hospitals in the areas where people who are smarter than you live. Take this prescription for thoughts and prayers and fuck off home with a tube of horsie medicine.

Send unvaccinated people infected with covid back home. You had your chance, everyone warned you, you ignored it. Go away. Face consequences.

NO! LA residents deserve to have hospital care! UGH so our surgeries and cancer treatments and whatnot can be cancelled, heart attacks untreated, all so the unvaxxed from elsewhere can clog our shit? Your body, your choice, your consequences.

Sadly the sooner these unvaxed ppl die off the sooner it will stop spreading and life can get back to normal. They are the reason we can have our lives back. Why should I care about their life?

So the place that give no shits gets to fill hospitals of the place with the highest levels of care?

Total bullshit. Maybe they could have a mask mandate. Vax mandates.

So not only did they ignore warnings, turn down free vaccinations, now they are going to cost LA taxpayers money to support their ignorance?

I can’t bring myself to deny them life saving medical help, but damn is that a bitter pill to swallow to save the willfully ignorant and having to pay for it to boot…and exposing LA residents with the virus when we have done a decent job protecting our community.

Family friend in Napa picketed for no mask no vax and to allow indoor church. He’s dead from Covid now. I guess god sorted him out.

Sister in Petaluma was on a ventilator due to Covid.

I however am triple vaxxed with Moderna working in a stressful high quantity of people interaction job in LA, and have not been Covid struck.

This may just be a small sampling, but we see this story repeatedly.

It’s plain and simple. Get vaxxed or risk the extreme consequences.

Now if you chose the latter don’t fucking ask me to help your ass. Lie in your shit and let the buzzards pick out your eyeballs.

If you get your dick stuck in a meat grinder after everyone told you it’ll grind that dick right off… well I ain’t pushing the power button. I’m just gonna sit back and enjoy the show.

I understand the vitrol, but do the healthcare workers in those towns deserve to get fucked over because the citizens suck?

Those are the people who are actually getting screwed by this. If people cared enough to demand real compensation for the front line workers maybe the governments would give enough of a shit to enforce regulations.

If this were early on in the pandemic, I'd be much more open to it. But at this point, with multiple viable and effective vaccines out there and a plethora of knowledge on how to minimize exposure and risk to the illness at your fingertips, it's really goddamn hard to ask LA's healthcare workers to voluntarily put themselves at risk for the sake of some stubborn ass.

I'm not going back on lockdown because our ICUs are full of people in other counties who didn't want to get vaccinated.

Start pitching those tents Central.

I mean these idiots deserve it but at the end of the day, if it's a life or death situation and the hospitals here can handle the caseload then we should take them in. Just my opinion.

Absolutely not. Sounds like the stank anti-vaxx plague-deniers in the Central Valley need to get their goddamn shots. Barring that, they are welcome to guzzle all the horse paste they can get their hooves on and summon ALL the Prayer Warriors, but there's no reason to cart them all down here and clog up our hospitals for no reason other than they're a buncha dumbasses.

Look, it’s almost the end of 2021. We’ve had vaccines for nearly a year. At this point, if someone refuses to get vaccinated and that person gets Covid, they can stay home and treat it with essential oils or Tucker Carlson reruns or whatever bullshit these dickheads are using as their excuse to be selfish, ignorant, and irresponsible.

We all need our hospital beds and emergency rooms for people who have NOT made a deliberate choice to be selfish, ignorant, and reckless. Those selfish people are on their own. You know, because of freedom or whatever. Bootstraps! Rugged individualism! PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY!

Hold on. What’s that? They don’t ACTUALLY believe any of that when their lives are on the line? Well, shut my mouth. Nobody saw that coming.

If they're unvaccinated and haven't a medical reason as to why, then it's best to send them back home. Fuck clogging up our hospitals. Just go home and continue to care as much about COVID as the days before you caught it. I'm outta fucks to give.

Who would have guessed that the area with the worst air quality in America, with high unemployment, high poverty, low educational attainment, and a lack of adequate healthcare resources in the community would see problems related to COVID. It's easy to hate your neighbors, but it's a lot harder to talk about the systemic problems that affect communities with limited fiscal capacity and infrastructure. We can do better for the people that live there.

800 out of 4m equals .02% of their county's population in need of hospitalization for COVID. This plus all the other patients is what's causing the problem. We need better healthcare infrastructure, better food for those people and better health education.

So they can fill up our hospitals? My wife almost died from Appendicitis because it took 14 hours for her to be seen. The hospital was overcrowded with anti-vaxxers. Her body went septic and she had to be treated with crazy amounts of antibiotics. If you have a breakthrough case come on down and enjoy your stay in LA. If you are an antivaxxer, please do your own research on how to cure yourself with the latest sheep dewormer or fish tank cleaner.

If we have the room, go for it. Let them remember that their stupid decisions almost killed them, and let them remember who saved their lives.

If this is going to mess up our hospitals, well tough shit for them I guess, I guess they'll wait their turn up in Central CA after all.
