The myocarditis argument in particular has been maddening. Of course we should be concerned about adverse events after vaccination - including potential myocarditis risks in young people. But the proportional risk analysis people cite defies logic when they simply cannot acknowledge that the virus itself poses more of a myocarditis risk than the vaccine, and it's really not close.
This idea offered (largely by "health/life coach influencer" types) that the vaccine is so dangerous and something you should fear, while dismissing Covid as a hoax and/or nothing to be concerned of, has resulted in really bad proportional risk perceptions during the pandemic.
