Any person not vaccinated is a risk to the society.

Doesn't this kind of imply that the rest of society is not vaccinated either! unsure.gif

That's certainly true of many immigrants coming in from third world countries.

Check your statistics... Many of those "third world" countries have better vaccination rates than developed countries.

Vaccination choice is a first world problem. Access to vaccination is a developing country problem and most countries do a reasonably good job at helping their populations get access.

Makes me laugh when you hear about these people who say they won't have the vaccine because they don't know what is in it. These vaccines are tested and produced by scientists in laboratories in sterile conditions and they don't "trust" them. However, they will by some "gear" from 6 fingered Kevin with one tooth down a back alley!

Similarly, if they produced an airborne, vaccine, which they could spread using aircraft - how many people would then mask-up. Yet while COVID-19 is in the air and a known killer, no one does!

The human race is a funny lot!

There is no such thing as a 100% totally safe vaccine. However, long standing vaccines have proven to be safe and save far more lives than are affected by any side effects.

When a vaccine is new and released in a short period, then it should be questioned. Sweden remembers swine flu and the vaccine that caused hundreds of people to suffer Narcolepsy. My worry is that the COVID-19 vaccine will be forced upon people eg. fly, go to the office etc, then you must have proof of being vaccinated. I hope that doesn't happen. The vulnerable, the elderly, health workers and political leaders should take it first to instill confidence.

Absolutely!!!

Politicians are famous for having different rules for themselves...

Over here they voted a health care system for the "little guy" but not for them...they had better!!!

P/S: I am also in favour of politicians in the front lines of wars they voted for!!!
