Letter: Vaxxing regulations
Steve Sheldon wrote an interesting letter about whether to compel people to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Instead of compulsion, he suggested: “More effective is to regulate, so that unvaccinated people cannot participate in certain aspects of our society.”
I recall having to get vaccinated against diphtheria so I could attend kindergarten.
There are controversies now about whether getting jabbed should be a condition for keeping one’s job — in the military, for example, or the private sector.
Why doesn’t the government make getting vaccinated a condition for receiving government benefits, such as food stamps, rental assistance, unemployment and student aid?
