Vaccination Status, Please

(H/T @NamelessCynic of the twitters)

It’s tough-love time in Sweet Home Alabama:

An Alabama doctor is reportedly refusing to treat unvaccinated patients, tells them to get COVID shot because he ‘can’t watch them die’

  • An Alabama doctor is refusing to treat patients who won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine, according to an AL.com report.
  • Dr. Jason Valentine warned patients that some who refuse the shot “end up severely ill or dead.”
  • Since he took his stance, he said patients have reached out asking where they can get the vaccine.

If his patients act like babies, he treats them like babies.

And speaking of babies:

“The right-wing channel Fox News, whose top personalities have for months assailed the concept of vaccine passports and argued that asking about vaccine status amounts to a major intrusion of privacy, told employees this week that they must disclose their vaccination status to the company.”

    And I just read an article (on Raw Story, I think) that a Texas school district is getting around Abbott Costello’s “schools can’t mandate mask wearing” fuckery by making masks a required part of the school dress code, which Abbott Costello can’t (yet) regulate. Had to have been a student that came up with that idea, as the yutes always, always know ways around and finding loopholes in the rules, and exploiting them mercilessly.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if the Q Fascists turn on the invisible hand of the free market system.

    • Oh they’ve only ever loved the invisible bitchslap of the free market when it’s hurting the people it’s supposed to. That’s why they’re the first to come with their hands out when shit goes against them.

    I see your governor has made vaccination a condition of employment for all state employees. That’s the way you do it. Test for drugs (not alcohol) as condition of employment.

      Yes, thank dog; and “COVID-19 vaccines will be required for all school employees — kindergarten through college — and most childcare and early learning workers in the state, Gov. Jay Inslee announced Wednesday afternoon.

      He also announced an expansion of the statewide indoor mask mandate to all people, regardless of vaccination status….

      Washington State Secretary of Health Umair A. Shah, M.D., MPH, amended Order 20-03 requiring face masks for everyone over five years of age in most public indoor settings regardless of vaccination status. These include places like grocery stores, malls, gyms, and community centers. Masks are strongly recommended in crowded outdoor settings like sporting events, fairs, and concerts where physical distancing is not possible. The updated order goes into effect on Monday, Aug. 23.

      “…All K-12 educators, school staff, coaches, bus drivers, school volunteers and others working in school facilities have until Oct. 18 to be fully vaccinated as a condition of employment.

      “The requirement includes public, private and charter schools, but does not include tribal schools…”
