The demand for COVID vaccinations, including various governmental and corporate requirements for the shots, finally may be getting out of hand.
Not that it hasn’t already caused controversy, economic injury and more.
Now the Epoch Times is reporting a plan in Los Angeles to require vaccination proofs in order to go into restaurants, gyms, entertainment venues and retail stores – including grocery retailers.
The report said that would be more restrictive that New York City’s plan to require that proof in restaurants and such, because it excludes retail stores.
LA’s plan comes from Council President Nury Martinez and council member Mitch O’Farrell.
In a prepared statement, Martinez claimed, “It’s our responsibility to protect the public, that includes protecting them from the unvaccinated. The decision to not get vaccinated doesn’t just affect you. We have kids under the age of 12 who are not eligible for the vaccine yet, and someone’s decision to not get vaccinated affects them as well.”
O’Farrell claimed those who choose not to take the experimental vaccines are “immoral.”
When resident Elizabeth Elliott pointed out that it was unethical to force people to take a shot, explaining, “People should have medical freedoms to research and make their own health decisions. We as citizens have a right to privacy, especially with our health information,” others warned the council of looming “pushback.”
One caller, Justin, explained, “Going down this road right now is really dangerous. We’re going to see lots of serious backlash, including lawsuits.”
A commentary at the American Conservative Movement charged LA officials with being “delusional.”
It said, “The Los Angeles City Council has conspired to deprive people of their basic civil liberties – their right to privacy, their right of body autonomy, their right to assemble, their right of informed consent.”
The article continued, “On August 11, the council members voted unanimously on an ordinance that seeks to STARVE OUT the unvaccinated by denying them access to retail grocery stores. The council members want to PERSECUTE the people they are supposed to serve, blocking their family, friends and neighbors from bars, gyms, entertainment venues, restaurants and retail stores.”
It warned, “The only people allowed to traverse the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’ are those who shoot up with spike proteins and carry ‘slave papers’ – also known as the vaccine record card. The L.A. ordinance ‘requires’ people to show proof of COVID vaccination as a prerequisite to enter any indoor public space in the city. This act of segregation will also block up to 40 percent of the revenue that restaurants, bars and other small businesses once enjoyed, while driving droves of people out of the city as they seek freedom in a free state.”
