'Stop Vaccine Finger Wagging'

Just stop.
The U.S. political divide on whether to get the coronavirus vaccine suggests that "maybe there’s been too much finger wagging,"" said the head of the National Institutes of Health.

"I've done some of that; I'm going to try to stop and listen, in fact, to what people's specific questions are," NIH Director Francis Collins said Sunday on NBC’s "Meet the Press."


No metaphor or anything, just a simple takeaway: stop finger wagging over vaccines. Cybersecurity professionals are way more effective than public health professionals, and certainly don't need to hear any finger wagging over our finger wagging over things like long passwords or failure to patch, so I shall keep my fingers where they belong.
