With regard to firing people who are not vaccinated or refuse to get vaccinated. Depending on the state, you may see more legal action taken against employers

Some states, ie. Michigan, have "At Will Employment" and your employer can terminate you with our without cause for any reason as long as it is not for a "Protected" reason such as Race, Gender, Age or Religion.  The ADA provides protections for the disabled but I don't think being unvaccinated falls into that.  Employers do not even need to give you a reason for the termination, just tell you that you are no longer employed by them.  Of course a Union Contract may come into play.

In the U.S., every state except Montana has at will employment as the default.

interesting comment that I saw on Twitter (so you know it’s valid!) is that we’ve required vaccinations for a lot of things before.   Certainly schools and one of the companies I worked for in PA required a medical checkup and clean Bill of health.   I think where people might have an issue is that we are moving that into our day to day lives because we have a pandemic going on.

I don’t think it’s forever and we shouldn’t make this a new normal.  For now, we need to unite together to do what is needed so we can back to normal.

Seriously, yeah. Colleges have required kids to get vaccinations and other stuff done before they show up their freshman year. This isn't really different.

Yes it is in some states but why are you afraid?  

The Lambda variant is out of Peru and I have read that it is not as nasty as the Delta variant. The Sigma variant follows that.

I'm hoping that any mutations make it less deadly, since being less deadly tends to allow it to continue to transmit better. I'm also hoping this doesn't roll over into a yearly flu type thing. 

On a side note. The idiots in Ohio want to introduce an anti-vaccination bill again.

House Bill 248, also named the Vaccine Choice and Anti-Discrimination Act, prohibits virtually everybody from requiring a vaccine, even employers such as hospitals, and forbids "discriminatory treatment" based on vaccination status. It also requires schools to notify parents that children can be exempted from vaccines.

The legislation applies to all vaccines, not just COVID-19 shots.

This is all sorts of stupid.

I have seen some comments in a forum that people want a governor like DeSantis (Florida).  They are saying that is a real leader (I'm in Michigan).

I think people misstake obstinance for strength. It takes strength to fight a disease.  Obstinance is just letting it run rampant despite experts warnings.

A forum on a local TV Station.  Clickondetroit.com

 

I think the issue with DeSantis is that he is not a governor, he’s a candidate.  What he is doing is popular with his supporters, but is not the best for them.  Nor other people in his state.   Hogan, Whitmer, DeWine, Wolff, etc…. All took it more seriously, which may hurt them politically.   I’d prefer someone make the right decision, not the one that you think is popular.

Do they intend this to apply to all vaccines, even the ones like measles, mumps, polio, all of those vaccines that are required already for some school systems?  Or is it just the political vaccine?  Wow, I just looked at Virginia's requirements, I see 11 different vaccines discussed.

The article says to all vaccines. This looks more to be a true anti-Vaxer stance versus just a COVID thing.

Wow, makes me wonder how long we've been vaccinating for things like polio and tetanus.  I know i got stabbed a few times when I was a kid, back in the early 60s.  I guess state and local reps can propose any kind of law, even if its extremely unlikely to pass.  Actually, US reps and senators can do the same thing, and do it with some regularity.

Just got my tetanus updated.

I doubt it will pass in Ohio. Out Governor will veto it.

Something similar happened in Tennessee already:

221gettyimages-1231124292_wide-162a6d8a2

In addition to her ouster, Dr. Michelle Fiscus says Tennessee is stopping all of its vaccination outreach efforts for teens and children – not only for COVID-19 but also for other illnesses.

That resulted in this:

The recent acceptance of the anti-vax movement by Republicans is alarming. I won't go too much further to avoid politics, but it has me very worried.

    • Equalled my personal best today shooting 80. Needed a par on the last for 79 but caught my approach heavy and needed an up and down for par. The chip just didn’t roll out as much as I wanted so I missed my par put by a couple of inches.  On the plus side I shot my first ever double bogey free round and first ever no sixes round (I thought this would have me breaking 80 but too many bogeys) I must head over and claim my badges 👍
