  1. While it is good to encourage everyone to get vaccinated it’s walking down a dangerous path to make vaccinations mandatory!

    Even the vaccinated are just as likely to get Covid19 and spread it just as much as an unvaccinated person so vaccine mandates defeat the purpose! (Vaccinations are only reducing your chances of hospitalization with serious illnesse)

    Useless making vaccines mandatory in the case of Covid19…
