“You eat hot dogs your entire life, but refuse a vaccine because you don’t know what’s in it”

Many people were afraid to take COVID-19 vaccines because they didn’t know what’s in them.
     
“You eat sausages your whole life but you refuse vaccine because you don’t know what’s in it” was posted on Twitter by Julian Popov on November 20, 2020, and the saying went viral (over 377,000 likes). “Y’all eat hot dogs your entire life but refuse a vaccine because you don’t know what’s in it” was posted on Twitter by Afton on November 21, 2020. “You’ve been eating chicken nuggets all your life but you refuse to take the vaccine because you don’t know what’s in it” was posted on Twitter by Jerome Powell later on November 21, 2020.
   
“You won’t take a vaccine because you don’t know what’s in it? Real quick, name all the ingredients in a Pop Tart” was posted on Twitter by jordan on November 22, 2020, and this saying also went viral (over 280,000 likes).
   
“So let’s see if I understand you correctly…..you’ve been eating hotdogs and McChickens all your life, but don’t want the vaccine, because, “you don’t know what’s in it?” was posted on Twitter by Island life on November 23, 2020. “So… you’ve been eating hotdogs and mcchickens all your life. But don’t want the vaccine because ‘you don’t know what’s in it’?” (also shown on an image) was posted on Twitter by Doc Malty on August 16, 2021.

Give him a chance – that was going to be a very clever syllogism:
You eat sausages your whole life but
You refuse vaccine because you don’t know what’s in it
Therefore: only the lead microbiologist of Pfizer makes safe hotdogs

People say, “I’m not taking the vaccine because you don’t know what’s in it.”
Well I suggest you don’t read food labels because you are going to starve.

If you eat hot dogs, sausages, or McRibs, I don’t want to hear you saying you refuse to take a vaccine because you don’t know what’s in it.

Anxious about getting a COVID vaccine because you don’t know what’s in it? We know a lot more about it than the safety of hot dogs
