Austria is passing a law requiring all citizens to be vaccinated

In what can only be described as alarming, the Austrian government is passing a law that would require all citizens to be vaccinated for COVID by Feb 1, 2022. There will probably be exemptions due to age and medical conditions. The country has a population of 9 million people and about two million are unvaccinated. The Daily Mail writes: Austria’s fully-jabbed rate currently stands at 66 per cent, slightly above the European average of 62 per cent but below the theoretical level of 70 per cent needed for herd immunity. It reported 15,809 new cases Friday – another one-day record – with an infection rate of 990.7 per 100,000 over the last week, one of Europe’s highest. Austria’s Chancellor, Alexander Schallenberg, believes this law is constitutional, though many are suggesting it is not. Some believe such a requirement would also violate European Union laws. There was no mention of what the penalties will be for those who refuse the vaccine, but it would likely involve a fine. One opposition party stated that Austria ‘is now …

COVID Anger: Is hatred of anti-vaxxers the new racism?

I know people who are really afraid for their futures. Their ideas may sound like a conspiracy theory, but they believe that a new intolerance is coming on us. The official orthodoxy is that everyone should get vaccinated, and disagreement with this official position can lead to abuse and loss of freedom. The people who I know, who are really worried, are mostly opposed to vaccination for COVID. It’s like the new racial intolerance. One of the best known opponents of COVID vaccination is the musician Eric Clapton. He developed health problems after being vaccinated, and he blames the vaccine. He says that he has lost friends because of his opinions. I have seen some abusive statements aimed at Eric Clapton. READ: Eric Clapton sings ‘enough is enough’ on new COVID policy protest song ‘This Has Gotta Stop’ I should give a disclaimer here. I personally don’t want to be on one side of the argument, so I won’t give a one-sided opinion about COVID treatments. I think we should encourage open discussion about the …

Good news: Second COVID vaccine is 94.5% effective

There is another ray a hope about the coronavirus. Moderna Inc. just announced it has a vaccine that tested nearly 95% effective for providing immunization against COVID-1984 and it could be ready by the end of the year. Newsmax writes: Moderna Inc. said Monday its experimental vaccine was 94.5% effective in preventing COVID-19 based on interim data from a late-stage clinical trial, becoming the second U.S. company in a week to report results that far exceed expectations. Together with Pfizer Inc’s vaccine, also shown to be more than 90% effective, and pending more safety data and regulatory review, the United States could have two vaccines authorized for emergency use in December with as many as 60 million doses of vaccine available by the year’s end. Next year, the U.S. government could have access to more than 1 billion doses just from the two vaccine makers, more than needed for the country’s 330 million residents.
