Covid and the Vaccine & Your Career
You are not vaccinated, I respect your choice,
I am vaccinated, respect my choice
I'm vaccinated, not to please the government but:
* To not die from Covid-19.
* To NOT clutter a hospital bed if I get sick.
* To hug my loved ones.
* To Not have to do PCR or antigenic tests to go to a dance, go to a restaurant, go on vacation and many more things to come ...
* To live my life.
* To have my kids/grandkids go back to school and play sports.
* For Covid-19 to be an old memory.
* To protect us.
On the other hand, no, I don't know what's in this vaccine, Or the ones I had as a child,
I also have no idea what is actually in a Big Mac, or in hot dogs,
I have no idea what is in various other treatments, whether it's for cancer, AIDS, the one for polyarthritis, vaccines for infants or children.
I also don't know what's in Ibuprofen, Tylenol, or other meds, it just cures my headaches, my pains
I don't know what's in the ink for tattoos.
There's a lot of things I don't know.
I just know one thing: life is short, very short, so I still want to do something other than just going to work every day or staying cloistered at home. I still want to travel and hug people without fear, find a little feeling of life "before".
As a child and as an adult I've been vaccinated for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, chicken pox, yellow fever and a few others; my parents and I trusted the science and never had to suffer through or transmit any of said diseases ... just saying.
However, what I do know is this.
Vaccines will become compulsory in many workplaces and others will follow.
Job applications will ask the question – Have you been vaccinated?
Over time you will find it difficult to find employment without proof of having been vaccinated.
Travel, going to the movies, going out to a restaurant will become impossible without having had the vaccination.
Whatever you choose to do – I respect your choice and the life you are choosing to live.
