I don’t think you read the article:
I don’t think you read the article:
“Officials at the press conference gave little detail on what could be behind the infection surge other than to say people were taking fewer precautions against the virus than before and the surge may be due to celebrations after Easter.”
Sadly this is a key issue that we are dealing with now. This is the only vaccine that people are in a way being forced to take. Don't dare object for whatever personal reason a person may have to pause and say no.I believe that people are entitled to choose whether they take it or not, just like the vaccine for the flu.
Restricting your movement is the direction that authoritarian governments take when you don't comply. The U.S. does not have a single law that mandates you take the vaccine in order to move about freely or work without consequence of not taking the vaccine.I agree, Jackie,except that those able to, but unvaccinated folks, have an affect on the small part of the population that, for whatever reason, can not be vaccinated; thus furthering the spread and extending the restrictions for all. I believe what is going to happen is that venues will require vaccination for admittance. It's happening now. Many of the universities are going to require vaccinations for entry this fall. One way, or another, we will get to "herd immunity". Getting vaccinated can remain the individual's decision but he or she may inducing their own restrictions instead of others. My thoughts on the subject of voluntary vaccinations.
You are right but businesses, schools, etc can require folks to provide proof of vaccination from employees and customers.Restricting your movement is the direction that authoritarian governments take when you don't comply.

Yes, you are correct. And there are folks that will not allow you to join them at weddings and cocktail parties. But as it relates to businesses, I am of the belief that the requirement to work depends on getting the vaccine will be challenged and the employers will loose.You are right but businesses, schools, etc can require folks to provide proof of vaccination from employees and customers.
There are major differences that seperate these diseases from this current virus. We did not shut the country's economy down or even selectively shut it down. And the country did not shut down public schools either in the modern era. And the Covid 19 vaccine and the flu shots bear no resemblance to each other. Employees in the medical field do not loose their jobs if they do not get the flu vaccine. And its funny that when some are challenged here with civil responses of some opposing points, they want to shut the entire conversation down. This sounds just like the major social networks now. You guys remain silent when the insults were posted from your side of the discussion.Consider what it might be like if smallpox shots, measles shots, polio vaccine and other such weren't nearly universal these days -- I had mumps and chicken pox as a kid (among other things) because we didn't have those vaccinations available. And a friend had his eyesight damaged by measles when he was a kid.
So consider the above and what difference nearly universal COVID shots would make for the future...
I disagree. If we disregard the anti vaccers (I know, I am one of the worst offenders) and stick to the premise of the post, we could all learn something.This topic has run it's course and has no more meaningful use, I would say.
There does not need to be a "law". Restrictions abound that limit what we can or can do. Private business can do as they please. It will be a minority does any challenging.
Yes we could. Unfortunately the anti-vaccers have a very closed mind. That's OK. Darwin awards will have a lot to choose from.I disagree. If we disregard the anti vaccers (I know, I am one of the worst offenders) and stick to the premise of the post, we could all learn something.
