@MitchWagner I didn’t know that anybody was required to accept a vaccine. I don’t believe they should be, though I’m in no sense an antivaxer. People ought to get vaccinated but they should be persuaded, not compelled. I got mine (Janssen, single dose) on Tuesday.

@artkavanagh They're talking about abolishing businesses' right to require vaccination to enter.

@MitchWagner I’m no constitutional expert but I’d have thought that would be overturned.

@artkavanagh But it scores points with the anti-vaxxers.

@MitchWagner I wasn’t trying to defend the law, just trying to imply that it seemed pointless, even from the perspective of those proposing it.

@artkavanagh It’s a politically motivated gesture.
