terminal – Unable to fully uninstall Vim from Monterey

I installed Vim using Homebrew, but I need to uninstall it.

I ran brew uninstall vim, but for some reason I’m still able to launch vim from the Terminal. Even after trying to uninstall, vim --version shows that I have v8.2 installed and provides a list of included features in my install.

whereisvim gives me usr/bin/vim and usr/share/man/man1/vim.1 but I’m unable to delete the files from these directories. I’ve also checked in the Applications folder and the ~/Library directories but there aren’t any files related to Vim.

I’m new to this so any input would be greatly appreciated.
