A growing number of Colleges have announced that students will be required to be vaccinated very shortly. Duke University is now added to that list, as Forbes reports that vaccination will be a requirement for students beginning this fall.
NO LONGER A CONSPIRACY THEORY:
None dare call it a conspiracy anymore! Despite many pro-vaxxers mocking anti-vaxxers who were suspicious that vaccines would eventually become mandatory. While the U.S government has not outright stated that vaccines would be mandatory, the writing is on the wall. Starting with the military to first responders, medical personnel to first-line workers, pressure increases on those who refuse to take the vaccine.
Even though some may argue it is unlawful for employers to make vaccination mandatory, there may be some loopholes that employers can use against employees that refuse. Webmd.com laid out the possible ways that employers can discriminate against unvaccinated employees. The article sites that if employers are unable to make accommodations that will maintain the safety of employees, then they can bar an unvaccinated individual from the physical workplace.
According to the U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, “If an employee cannot get vaccinated for COVID-19 because of a disability or sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance, and there is no reasonable accommodation possible, then it would be lawful for the employer to exclude the employee from the workplace.” SOURCE: EEOC.GOV
The U.S took another step towards tyranny, whether you want to believe it or not. All indicators point towards mandatory vaccination. Of course, the powers that be will slow-walk this process. They know better than to ever announce mandatory vaccination for all U.S citizens. If they did, there would be riots all over the country. But if you do a little research on Israel’s vaccine policy, you will see the U.S is heading in that direction. We may never hear U.S government officials state that vaccination is mandatory, however just like the masks, and social distancing, along with the curfews implemented in certain states, the vaccine will be mandatory without them ever using the term “mandatory.” Look for the gray area.
2022 will look a lot different. Once the majority of the public has been vaccinated, the anti-vaxxers will become the outcasts of society. In other words, you will not be able to work in certain career fields or enter certain facilities, especially government facilities.
Mandatory or not, I expect vaccination certificates to be required for most places of business. I also expect the powers-that-be will intentionally roll out policies that will make life very uncomfortable for the unvaccinated.
