To vax or not to vax is about the hottest topic of social and political conflict going on now north of the border.
While polls conducted in early August showed that Americans were evenly divided on the subject of Covid vaccination mandates, as more and more hospital beds are being occupied by unvaccinated patients, the scales are now tipping in favor of limiting entry to private and government job sites, mass public events, and other enclosed and crowded spaces to people who prove they’ve gotten jabs.
Hopefully, some borderline vaccination resisters were moved by the group of Florida doctors who held a press conference this week to passionately plea for everyone to take some weight off the shoulders of exhausted health care workers by getting inoculated.
An interesting side issue is whether the vaxed should be entitled to other benefits and privileges, or the willfully unvaccinated somehow punished. Say, for example applying vaccination criteria to the cost of health insurance or employment security.
