New England Journal of Medicine Suggests "Employment Suspension" for COVID Vaccine Noncompliance

So this is how they want to play the game.

NoMask.info reports:

A New England Journal of Medicine article entitled 'Ensuring Uptake of Vaccines against SARS-CoV-2' dated June 26, 2020, suggests that employment suspension, as opposed to fines or criminal penalties, be imposed on those who refuse mandatory COVID19 vaccinations in the future.

The report states, in part:

"state mandates should not be structured as compulsory vaccination (absolute requirements); instead, noncompliance should incur a penalty. Nevertheless, because of the infectiousness and dangerousness of the virus, relatively substantive penalties could be justified, including employment suspension or stay-at-home orders for persons in designated high-priority groups who refuse vaccination. Neither fines nor criminal penalties should be used, however; fines disadvantage the poor, and criminal penalties invite legal challenges on procedural due-process grounds. Both are bad public health policy for a Covid-19 vaccine because they may stoke distrust without improving uptake."

Following are further excerpts. Note: Wikipedia notes "The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), (established in 1964) is a committee within the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that provides advice and guidance on effective control of vaccine-preventable diseases in the U.S. civilian population."

### The need to build public trust requires that state officials implement vaccination policy through a transparent and inclusive process,...
### vaccine manufacturers should stay on the sidelines. The HPV vaccine manufacturer’s direct involvement in crafting and lobbying for mandate legislation raised suspicion that profit rather than public health motives lay behind such proposals, undercutting support for vaccination even without a mandatory regime.

As with social distancing orders, we can expect that the advent of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines will spark intense clashes of feeling about what people owe to one another in the fight against the pandemic. In contrast to earlier phases of the pandemic, though, we currently have some time on our side. Careful deliberation now about state vaccination policy can help ensure that we have a strategy when the breakthrough comes.

  1. More Orwellian bullshit.

    "...fines disadvantage the poor.."

    But "employment suspension" doesn't?!

    We'll just ratchet up the public divisiveness while big pharm
    and the state try to look good by appearing to stay above the fray.

  2. Meanwhile it's been 42 days since the George Floyd protests started, and the 7 day moving average for rate of deaths per day (by reported date) has dropped 50%.

    And we know that Vitamib D sufficiency reduces the chance of death from covid by over 90%...

    So when will these evil bastards admit that all we needed was some outdoors and fresh air, and this virus was done for? No social distancing, no masks, noe of it was necessary. And no vaccine will be either.

  3. It's weird how the same people who just know that corporate America is evil and is looking to sell dangerously defective goods at high prices because they're greedy also swears by vaccines produced by corporate America.

  4. Our predator class are not stupid.

  5. What are you going to do if the person saying no works from home like many of us now do.

  6. The scariest villain is the one who doesn't know he's the villain and really believes in what he's doing.
