A Response to Additional Criticisms of My Covid Article

There were numerous criticisms of the article “The Role of Social Circle COVID-19 Illness and Vaccination Experiences in COVID-19 Vaccination Decisions: An Online Survey of the United States Population” that appeared on media, social media as well as concerns communicated to me privately. Many of these criticisms were bogus, but some deserve responses that will be incorporated into a future revision of the paper. This report addresses the concerns that deserve responses. I think item #8 of the report is most interesting and important.
