The Vaccine Wars are starting here in Ireland – the Vaccinated against the Unvaccinated.
This was inevitable, what with all the relentless hype and scaremongering we have been subjected to over the last year and a half. This naturally has led to a divide in society.
On one hand we have the Vaccinated. These are the Good Guys who have obediently followed all instructions and are now immune to anything life may throw at them. They are, to all intents and purposes immortal.
On the other hand we have the Unvaccinated who are evil, unclean and are all apparently wearing suicide vests and are likely to kill anyone they encounter.
Bosses are now worried about the future when people start to return to work.
Google and a couple of other companies have already stated that only the Vaccinated can return to work. The Unvaccinated are not welcome. Other companies think this is a great idea but are worried [quite rightly] about the legality of such a move.
Personally, I can’t see what the fuss is about. For a start, a person’s vaccination history is nobody’s business, least of all an employer’s. But I can’t understand the logic behind it all anyway. What difference does it make if a person is vaccinated or not? If you’re vaccinated then you have been assured that you are protected so it doesn’t matter a blind fuck if the person at the next desk is Unclean. Equally if you are Unvaccinated then presumably you know the risks and it doesn’t matter who you mingle with. Certainly the Vaccinated are as much a threat to you as anyone so their status is irrelevant.
If I were running a company with say ten staff, then I would have no worries. I wouldn’t bar the Unvaccinated because it is none of my damned business. If the five who have been vaccinated complained that they won’t work with the other five and threatened to walk out, I would tell them to go ahead and I would dock their pay accordingly. It is none of their fucking business whether someone has had a jab or not, and anyway, what are they afraid of? They are supposedly all but immune so there is nothing to fear?
Unless, of course the vaccine doesn’t work?
