In the LA Times, Robin Abcarian explains her joy at the sight of the unvaccinated being punished with exclusion from society. The vax mandate is nothing more than a push for more control over as many Americans as possible. Abcarian writes:
In the city of Los Angeles, where I live, you can’t enter a restaurant, a government building, a gym, a bar, or a coffee shop without showing proof of vaccination. I know some establishments are less apt to check than others, but each time I walk past a “no vaccination, no service” sign, my heart skips a beat.
The few times I’ve entered a restaurant lately, I’ve joyfully whipped out my proof-of-vaccination card. I enjoy doing my part. Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is not any kind of sacrifice.
It is an act that is, paradoxically, both selfish and selfless.
You’re doing something for yourself — reducing the likelihood of contracting the virus and reducing the likelihood of hospitalization or death in the event of a breakthrough infection.
You’re also doing something for others — your loved ones, your friends, your casual contacts and people you’ve never even met.
This is the ultimate win-win.
As the Omicron variant of this awful virus rages like wildfire through our communities, I want to be inoculated to the max. If an expert told me I would benefit from a fourth shot, a fifth or a sixth, I would rush to the nearest pharmacy for another dose. That’s how much I believe in the science behind vaccines, in the advice of experts and in the idea that individual rights and preferences must take a back seat to the public health.
That’s also why I’m so angry that so many eligible people remain unvaccinated.
I’m thrilled that they are not able to mingle everywhere at will with those of us doing our part to get the pandemic under control.
