Bans growing on vaccine passports

Amazing, the vaccine is effecting how people look at each other and many of the folks today feel it's completely unacceptable for either government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply participate in normal society.

As the COVID-19 vaccination roll-out continues across the United States the use of vaccine passports has left many concerned about health privacy protections.

Amazing again is the fact that the campaign to immunize health care professionals has hit a snag as a notable number of front-line workers decline the vaccine.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said just 38 percent of nursing home workers participated in the federally run vaccination campaign for residents and employees of the facilities during the first month.

Although those numbers likely have risen in the weeks since, and that tally doesn't include workers who received a vaccine outside of their workplace, they do illustrate a problem.

Surveys are presently showing consistently increasing acceptance of the vaccines.

Interesting conversations I had recently with two registered nurses who both have not received the vaccine indicated their distrust, and they felt not enough testing has been done and they have feelings that the vaccines are not safe.

Some in the nursing field said that they were hesitant to get a vaccine because of unanswered questions.

Then there are those states that are moving to restrict COVID vaccination passport mandates.

White House chief medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, says he does not believe the federal government is going to federally mandate COVID vaccination passport mandates.

Personal freedom becomes an issue here and there should be no discriminating against people who are not vaccinated or requiring them to be vaccinated.
