This State Could Soon Require All Residents To Receive The COVID Vaccine

One thing that has been made clear during the whole coronavirus pandemic is that Americans do not like being told what to do.

This has been apparent for a long time, it's kind of why we became a country in the first place. Since the Boston Tea Party in 1773 we have only grown more protective of our freedoms. The only thing that has changed is it's our own government trying to enforce mandatory regulations on us.

So when it came to COVID-19, we were not going to be told what to wear on our faces, and we sure weren't going to get a brand new vaccine that could possibly contain government tracers.

So you can imagine the panic that is coming out of New York State following this announcement. 

Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal, who represents parts of Manhattan’s West Side, earlier this month introduced a bill that would require the state to “safely and effectively” distribute an FDA-approved vaccine “in accordance with the department [of health]’s COVID-19 vaccination administration program,” according to the language of the legislation.

“While steps have been taken to reduce the spread of COVID-19, epidemiologists and public health experts have concluded that a vaccine will be necessary to develop herd immunity and ultimately stop the spread of the disease,” the bill’s support memo states. “[T]he State must make efforts to promote vaccination and ensure that a high enough percentage of the population is vaccinated against COVID-19 to develop sufficient immunity.”

With experts believing that 70% or more of the population would have to receive the vaccine in order to achieve herd immunity, there is great concern that polls show less than 60% of Americans are willing to be vaccinated.
