Hikikomori Blitzkrieg!: Yes, well, there's quite an enormous distinction between having a potentially deadly infection (HIV)

COVID has killed far more people in the last 2 years than HIV. COVID has killed more people in the US than HIV in all its history put together. I'd say COVID is a deadly infection.

Hikikomori Blitzkrieg!: merely refraining from taking a vaccine

Then perhaps a more apt analogy is someone who has unprotected sex with people who have HIV and then don't tell subsequent partners. I mean, they are MERELY refraining from using protection.

Hikikomori Blitzkrieg!: a vaccine that is (it must be noted here) not mandatory.

It is mandatory in some locations. It would be much more without some politicians banning vaccine mandates. Whether or not it's mandatory is a political question and one party with considerable political power has largely been taken over by anti-vaxxers who push against it.
