MANDATES FOR WE THE PEOPLE?

OCTOBER MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR

A mandate here, a mandate there! Mandates! Aren’t we all tired of them? You must close your restaurant, barber shop/hair salon! You may not go into your office! You may not attend school in person! You must wear a mask! You must stay six feet apart from anyone outside of your household! You must quarantine for 14 days if you go across state lines! You must comply with contact tracing!

Each of these was promulgated by various government agencies with the notion of keeping us safe during the height of the pandemic. For the most-part, we all complied because we were frightened of catching or passing COVID-19 along to our loved ones. In addition, the death count was frightening.

Now we have a vaccine that is very effective and when it became available, many of us were chomping at the bit to get it – particularly those of us older than 65 as we are the most vulnerable according to the stats.

Let me get one issue out of the way right away – I am not an “anti-vaxxer.” However, I believe to take or not to take the vaccine is a personal decision and should be respected by us all. There are a number of very valid reasons some are hesitant. In the Fall of 2020, the Presidential and Vice-Presidential Democrat candidates announced that they believe in science and researchers but didn’t trust any vaccine that was promoted by Donald Trump! Were dumber words ever spoken? The press and many social media influencers also denigrated the “Trump vaccine.” Now, with Biden in the White House, miraculously the vaccines have become safe and effective. Who knew?

Some feel that the mRNA vaccines were developed with technology that was too new for them to be comfortable with taking it as these were the first vaccines developed in this manner. Considering the rapidity with which the vaccine came to market I can understand this hesitancy even though I don’t agree. Others are concerned that taking the vaccine with their pre-existing conditions may exacerbate these underlying diseases and consequently cause other medical issues. A very valid point since we get new data almost daily, although none of this is from research performed in the U.S. Israel leads in this important endeavor. I know of one young man who is HIV positive and after a conversation with his physician was advised not to get the vaccine. He is a college student and his college is requiring him to give very explicit details for why he has a medical exemption. Why should he have to disclose his HIV status to strangers? What ever happened to HIPPA? In addition, there are those who are nursing mothers, those who are undergoing in vitro fertilization treatments, those receiving chemotherapy treatments, and some are opposed due to religious beliefs – a 1 st Amendment issue. These are all valid concerns to these people.
