1. People that live on islands in the middle of nowhere and eat a Mediterranean diet.

2. Superheroes with natural immunity to disease.

3. Hermits that live in caves. No need to vaccinate. Enough said.

4. Americans that believe Anthony Fauci has fooled the masses.

5. The platypus because it’s a solitary animal.

6. Children and adolescents younger than age 18 years because they are low-risk populations. Read the research.

7. Individuals that recovered from COVID-19 and have immunity as a result.

8. Scuba divers that spend most of their time underwater.

9. Any citizen that believes in the Constitution of the U.S. and chooses not to take the needle.

10. Middle-earth dwellers.

Folks, there ya have it. Ten more reasons for COVID-19 vaccine exemptions. Hope this column gives you a chuckle!
