[ # ] Steve Burton fired from General Hospital rather than get the vaccine
November 23rd, 2021 under Coronavirus, TV Soaps

For weeks, there have been rumors that Steve Burton was out of General Hospital because he wasn’t going to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Today, he confirmed that his days as Jason Morgan are done. At least as long as they have the vaccine mandate.

In his Instagram video, he said that no one “should lose their livelihood over this.” Call me crazy, but I don’t think anyone should lose their life over COVID-19 if they can get a shot that could prevent that. Not only could it prevent it for them, but also people who really have medical reasons on why they can’t get the shot.

I am sick of the personal freedom bullsh!t. It is not all about you; it is about caring about others besides yourself. Let’s say Burton or Ingo Rademacher got the virus (Burton did), went to work, gave it to a co-worker, and that co-worker died. How would they Feel? We need to protect ourselVes and the people that are vulnerable to the virus.

Stop being selfish, and get the shot. I am fully vaccinated with the booster, and I am fine. So are my friends and family. I didn’t hug my favorite person in the world for over a year until I was vaccinated because she was 7, and I didn’t want to do anything that could harm her. We don’t know how each individual is going to react to the virus. Some are fine, and others don’t survive. I think of the ones that don’t. Plus, we don’t know the long-term effects. How long did it take doctors to discover that Shingles comes from Chickenpox? COVID-19 is too new for us to understand the actual dangers of the virus. It terrifies what we are going to learn about this coronavirus of the next few decades.

Kudos to General Hospital for being the only soap opera that has the mandate. Days of our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless need to do better. Sony, what are you waiting for?
