BREAKING: NYC forcing vaccine mandates on indoor dining and gyms

New York City’s fascist mayor, Bill De Blasio, is forcing restaurants and gyms in the city to adhere to vaccine mandates for their customers who want to eat inside or use the gym to get healthy:

Here’s more from NBC News:

New York City will require proof of vaccination for leisure indoor activities at restaurants and gyms — becoming the first major city in the United States to do so.

Mayor Bill de Blasio made the announcement at a Tuesday morning press conference. The program, also known as the “Key to NYC Pass,” will be implemented mid-August during a transition period before it will be fully enforced beginning the week of September 13.

“It is time for people to see vaccinations as literally necessary to living a good, full and healthy life,” he said during the press conference. “If you’re unvaccinated, unfortunately, you will not be able to participate in many things.”

While the mayor recognized that “not everyone’s going to agree with this,” he said the proof of vaccination will be “lifesaving.”

The mandate is the latest attempt by de Blasio to encourage more people to get vaccinated against Covid-19. Last week, he offered a $100 incentive to city residents and employees who make an appointment at city-run vaccination sites.

This is ridiculous and goes against everything this country had stood for in terms of individual liberty. People in NYC (I’m sure this will spread) are now going to be punished for not getting jabbed with a vaccine that they oppose, with good reason. As I’ve told you in the past, I’ve been vaccinated. But I have no problem with someone who doesn’t trust this vaccine because it doesn’t yet have full FDA approval and who would rather risk their life than get the jab. People should be free to choose whether they want the vaccine or not.

And think of how this will hurt businesses who lose a good portion of their customer base because of these authoritarian rules. Businesses have already been struggling over the last year coping with the pandemic, and this is just going to make things worse. Not to mention they now have to have someone checking for a ‘vaccine passport’.

Honestly, what do I care if someone wants to eat in the same restaurant as me who’s unvaccinated? I’ve been vaccinated so even if I catch COVID, it will almost certainly be a mild case. People get sick all the time and you simply can’t protect against these kinds of things without onerous and fascistic rules, taking away people’s individual liberty.

I hope restaurants and gyms affected by this sue the city.
