What would you do if your company made Covid19 vaccinations mandatory?

    You do understand that the vaccine isn't fool proof. You can still catch the virus, you just won't have a life threatening case or be as contagious as if you didn't get the vaccine. That is the current variants we know of. That doesn't mean a new variant couldn't arise that makes the vaccine useless. Thus the race to prevent further spread of the virus and a large melting pot creating new variants.
    As far as alcohol, simple, just stop drinking, no vaccine required.

    exactly, and if the virus prays on fat obese unhealthy people then them being fat obese and unhealthy becomes my business doesnt it? they all told me to worry about me, but if your obese, unhealthy and have increased your chances of contracting a virus and spreading a virus then i guess it is my business now, correct? that is if we are going by your logic. how about taking a walk or getting on a treadmill instead of contracting a virus an spreading it to me because you are unhealthy and have destroyed your immune system
    with dunkin donuts and prescription meds lol unhealthy people are the biggest threat when it comes to a virus spreading. but by all means blame me for not getting a vaccine or wearing a mask to protect you lol that is if you even believe such a dangerous virus exists, trust me cancer will most likely kill you before covid does, but if cancer kills you and you have covid they will surely mark it down as a covid death to inflate the numbers for the cattle.

    Have the numbers in Texas spiralled out of control since they lifted the mandate? :rolleyes:

    Wife said school bus driver showed up without a mask yesterday. Things are finally getting back to normal. Getting more and more rare to see people wearing masks in truckstops.

    For you maskers.... everyone who will ever get the virus will get the virus. Mask or no mask. Quarantine, lock downs, social distancing, masks - it was all to flatten the curve, and keep hospitals from getting overwhelmed. It was never about stopping the virus. Remember "15 days to flatten the curve"? Well, we did that. Hospitals aren't getting overwhelmed. You're either getting the virus eventually, or you aren't. Masks won't save you.

    There are a lot of stories out there of people having adverse reactions to these vaccinations, and of medical professionals, including doctors, who are refusing to get them. I was getting a haircut a couple of weeks ago and the barber told me that she had had 2 doctors who had gotten haircuts just recently who told her that they were not going to get it. So if an employer told me that I HAD to get one, I would show them some of this material, and if they insisted, I would look for another job.

    I hate to say this, but it is possible that in the future, one will not be able to rent a place, check in a hotel, renew their DOT physical, fly anywhere, ride in a bus, enter a shop, etc... the possibilities are many... without proof they were vaccinated...
    There are colleges in the US right now that require proof of COVID vaccination...
    Read this article...

    I doubt it. Majority of business owners I've talked to are not interested in pushing the vaccinations on their employees.

    Even if it did come to the scenario you describe, I'll just build a homestead in the woods, miles away from the next nearest human.

    Even if I did choose to eventually take the shot I will still refuse to show that proof to anyone who is not a medical professional that is treating me as a patient. My health status is personal and not public domain.

    Except that article is very misleading. For example University of Michigan is on the list. A vaccine is only required if you want to live on campus in dorms. Just going to classes doesn't require it. Gotta wonder how many other on the list is misleading also.

    A lot of those proposed rules also hinge on FDA approval, which none of these vaccines actually have.
