Introduction There are really so many places to start with COVID-19 and its really kind of ridiculous that in the 21st century of medicine and access to unlimited information, a good portion of American society still chooses conspiracy theory. This makes things complicated when discussing the vaccine, especially with family and friends who opt to listen to far-right media sources or rely on Facebook for information. When so many people passionately argue against the vaccine and confidently use statistics you have never heard, how do you know you have the right information?
One thing that I find incredibly unique to the society and the world we live in is the access to media outlets and information. If you compare this to the late 1990’s and early 2000’s things were not quite as mainstream and sticking your face into something besides your phone (such as a book) was a lot more common. Today, I can journalize about mental health during a pandemic and relate it to the philosophy of comic books through an introduction about the unique mainstream media outlets of the twenty-first century.
