I agree that getting the vaccination is one’s free choice. I want to see them accept the consequences of their inaction though. Simple as that. There is no moral obligation.
Take the vaccination and get protection (and protect).
Don’t take the vaccination and accept that you’re not going to get priority on treatment.
That’s my view.
Indeed, it's everybodies free choice.
Now going to be the advocates devil
Vaccination is presented as being put under a "cloche" hence you will protect others and be safeguarded. The essence of a vaccin is that it will kick into action with your auto immuun system (AIS), enhance your auto immuun system, so the effects of contracting the virus will be less. You still can spread the germ during the period of catching the germ and that your AIS is full active.
Being vaccinated means also accepting the long term side effects as much as one who isn't vaccinated accepts the chance being by the virus.
Most of the non vaccinated people contracting the virus, where in good health and experienced a short period of flue like symptoms. Some - very few - contract the long term covid, will experience more severe symptoms, and a few others (i.e. 1500 IC cases on a population of 17 million = 0.0001). Most of these already have a medical histoy that is more than the occasional cold. I do find percentages more interesting than absolute figures.
Another interesting question: what are the costs of vacination versus the costs treatment? I don't know, but I'm darn curious. Anybody out there who can tell?
What if someone had a stroke, may you ask of them to be vaccinated with a vaccin that might augment the chance of getting a new stroke as the vaccin is counterproductive to the medication prescribed to prefent a new stroke. I don't think so.
What if, as a number of specialists state, that your AIS will be blocked in due course by the vaccin?
What if you are living in the middle of no-where and are self supporting?
What if the mRNA vaccins, being syntatic, will cause cancer due to the nano particels used? (no, I'm not a anti vax, nor am I a pro vax. In my opinion there are to many unanswered questions to make a sound choice. I'm just not a sheep jumping over the fence because all others do.).
I do think that the best measures taken to decrease the contaminations,
- decrease travel
- decrease interaction
- the wearing of protective masks
