Compassion Fatigue is becoming an issue for vaccinated people when it comes to the unvaccinated getting sick

As Delta overruns day to day lives, people feel like the gatherings and family get-togethers are a distant memory.

Many people feel anger and frustration as a result of the way things are after following mask mandates and getting the vaccine.


The division among people are for different reasons, many people choosing not to get vaccinated because they’ve been misinformed, exercising their right to choose, or some wishing they’d gotten it after getting sick.

Something called Compassion Fatigue is filling hospital hallways as medical staff struggle to keep up with the stress of caring for patients with COVID who chose not to get the vaccine.

Americans have taken to Twitter to express their frustration over those choosing to not get the vaccine:

While many express frustration, others feel that treating them this way is cruel or inhumane.

In order to combat vaccine fatigue and to try to proactively fix the issue, North Carolina State University professor Stacy Wood says to direct loved ones who’s ideas stem from political viewpoints to someone who shares similar views that has had the vaccine.

Keeping the discussions about vaccines mild while coming from a place of care is most helpful.

One doctor even shared how she handles Compassion Fatigue and tries making a positive difference with with it in a viral Facebook post.

To date over 90,000 people are hospitalized with COVID and 636,491 deaths.
