I predicted a lot of industries, like live performances, movie theaters, etc. would require vaccinations going forth. With the cruiseline industry doing just that, it's likely that the 40% idiots will be compelled to in order to rejoin society, or live on the fringe.

Yea, that's the thing I'm worried about. I mean, there's estimated 15%-20% of uninsured drivers driving around, which has marginally more strict enforcement than what you're talking about here, and those kinds of numbers are enough to bring us below the herd immunity threshold.

Given that, I'm having a hard time imagining what kind of situation your vaccination card gets checked by law enforcement at Starbucks that is common enough to get higher compliance rates than driver's insurance.

Isn't 15-20% good enough? From what I've heard, we need about 80% vaccination to get herd immunity.

Yeah I think that's going to happen too. Imagine never being able to fly again lol.
Maybe next year...

Do you fly a lot or something?

I never flew a single time until I was 23 and have only flown maybe 7 times since then (32 years old). If it came down to it, I could easily go without flying for the rest of my life. And if I can do it, I would imagine a large number of others could as well. My mom, for instance, is nearly 60 and she's only flown 4 times in her life but has been to something like 25-30 of the 50 states. It's manageable (well, unless your job requires a lot of flying).

You just going to live the rest of your life without ever taking a vacation? And for what, so you don't have to take a vaccine?

I know this is going to sound unpopular, but most who are undeducated/fearful of vaccines tend to be low income people. They don't fly, take cruises, or even drive long distances. They usually stay at home. So none of the travel restrictions will impact them.

Yeah...but those won't be the only thing you won't be allowed to do. Lots of businesses and employers are going to follow suit. Even low income people need to fly sometimes.

Flying is not the primary activity for anyone that is off limits.

It’s probably not even in the top 10.

s***’s f***ed up right now. And it didn’t have to be this way but we had selfish, orange ass who sat around with his tiny fingers in his ears.

While Trump deserves some of the blame obviously, morons have been refusing vaccines long before he came along.

maybe requiring vaccinations for things like eating at restaurants, going to the movies, traveling on flights, or going to sporting events. That should drive some of the numbers up. I know I want to start enjoying those things again
