TriHealth, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based health center fired 150 of its workers the Wednesday before Thanksgiving for not complying with a mandate that every member of the 10,800-person staff get the vaccine, which was being offered for free on-site. Whatever their motivation, be it philosophical or religious opposition to getting the vaccine, the workers are facing an increasingly common workplace policy. Fourteen states and the District of Columbia have passed laws requiring health workers to get vaccinated or some form of treatment, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Just another loss of liberty. When the country begins to mandate, require, or coerce people to do something they do not wish to do liberty is loss. Are Flu shots a good thing? CDC says so...the research is somewhat less sure...some research even shows that maintaining optimum (not basic) levels of vitamin D in your system is as effective as the Flu shot.
If people continue to accept this gradual move towards tyrannical solutions to common problems whether done by private institutions or govemental institutions we will live some form of Tyranny or another and Freedom and Liberty will be a thing of the past remembered only by those of us who saw its decline and death.
