Do you agree with mandatory vaccinations

Post by phuketrichard »

As above:
i got both shots, not because i thought i would be safer or it would prevent me from getting covid but because i hope (d) it would one day be required to travel without quarantine, ( looks like now by the time unquarantined travel comes around, i will need 1 or ever 2 boosters)

I do NOT agree with mandatory vaccinations to travel or work
I would go with everyone would need a negative test to travel and hopefully one day there will be quick tests which would need be taken once/week at work IF ur unvaccinated

Just because you have had 1, 2, 3 vacancies does not mean you do NOT have covid>>>Nor will it 100% prevent you from catching it.

Please: if you post tell us if you have had the vaccine

Vaccinated but don’t agree with mandatory vaccination.
As long as all those who choose to be vaccinated have been able to vaccinated, and appropriately boosted, that’s enough for me.

Definitely against. I think we should be able to choose if we wan't to get vaccinated, when we want to get vaccinated, and what vaccine we want to use.

Personally have been waiting for more of a selection. We now have Astra and J&J here as well, but I'm in no rush to travel or mingle in crowds so will hold for a bit longer until we have more data on booster shots etc.

Got my second shot an hour ago. I am for mandated vaccines, the only way to get a handle on this in my opinion.

Vaccinated, though I'm on the fence about it being mandatory. I do think that depending on one's line of work, mandatory vaccinations might be reasonable (if you have to work with children or immunocompromised people, for example). I don't like the idea of being forced to do....anything really, but I find it odd that people are kicking up such a fuss over this when we've had mandatory vaccinations for decades in order to attend university or travel to certain countries.

That's a bit different than mandatory vaccine for existing while we are still figuring out which vaccine works best and for how long.

Though I agree for some line of work it would make sense.

What puzzles me are people claiming they don't trust science when it comes to vaccines but do trust science when they get seriously ill and run off to the nearest hospital.

On the web there are some pretty shocking video's from unvaccinated people ending up in the hospital sick, really sick. Yesterday I saw this one, from an unvaccinated young woman clearly in the risk group:



She didn't make it apparently.

I'm vaccinated. As an adult, the choice to be vaccinated should remain with the person, not an 'authority'.
