Editor:

Those of us who have been vaccinated don’t care whether you get vaccinated.

The only stipulation is that until you have proof of vaccination, you will not be welcome in public venues, including restaurants, bars, clubs, movie theatres, concerts and sporting events, etc.

You do not have the right to potentially infect those of us who have chosen to protect ourselves and those around us from infection by the coronavirus.

This is no different than the protective measures that were implemented to protect us from other deadly infectious diseases, such as smallpox, polio and others.

Requiring proof of vaccination is not an infringement of “your rights.”

It is the law, just like other laws, such as those governing the operation of a motor vehicle, for which you are required to provide proof that you are in compliance with the law. 

The requirement to show proof of vaccination is not any different from the requirement for young people to provide proof they are old enough to be served alcoholic beverages in a public place.

It is time to recognize the science related to the vaccines and to ignore the “journal of www.”
