Yup. I am not particularly concerned. I do get the flu shot each year. I am not opposed to a covid boster from time to time if it covers the new variants (much like the annual flu shot). But I am not going to get a booster for a shot I have already had 3 shots for the same virus.Flus went around too.
The simple answer there is DON"T FORCE IT DOWN PEOPLE"S THROATS!!!The “freedom” rhetoric that sprang up around the COVID-19 vaccines is concerning and must not happen around childhood immunization.
I doubt if Pierre is referring to childhood vaccines which have been proven effective over the years.The simple answer there is DON"T FORCE IT DOWN PEOPLE"S THROATS!!!
The FASTEST way to turn people away from vaccines is demand they MUST take them on pain of law. And children are NOT required to take it to go to school, there has always been an exclusion for religious OR MORAL reasons. In other words, if you don't want your kid to take it because you think it's bad and you're willing to sign to that effect then fine.
There will always be a small number of people who for whatever reason decide they don't trust the vaccines. Fine. We do NOT need 100 percent vaccination to fight off a disease or illness. Let them go, and everyone else will look at them like they're a weird fringe crackpot group. But if you demand it and then it turns into a public fight you'll see exactly what we saw with covid and FOR NO GOOD REASON. Even worse - pretty soon everyone gets sick of it and stops with the vaccines, which has happened now.
Polievre's approach is absolutely the correct one. The VAST majority will choose to get their kids vaccinated, a handful won't but they'll be happy because they had a choice, Canada will be sufficiently protected and the problem will be over.
Yeash. How hard is that.
