Love Vs. Vaccine Mandates
May we live in interesting times. Check this out. What you will see is my friend Jane Sarasohn-Kahn’s blog post which further develops a theme I wrote about recently. In my post, I talked about the PSA offered by Pope Francis, in which he described getting the COVID vaccine as “An act of love.” Here, Jane notes that the Catholic Health Association has mounted an entire campaign wrapped around the notion of getting vaccinated being a way to “Love thy neighbor.”
AND. As I wrote this on September 9th, a clearly perturbed President Biden announced that he was “out of patience” with the unvaccinated, and proceeded to issue a mandate for almost 100 million people to get vaccinated. Federal employees, those doing business with the Government, employees of large corporations, etc.
Bottom Line. An interesting juxtaposition of events. A message based on love and a Presidential mandate. Will these forces combine to get the hardcore unvaccinated to take the plunge? What will the percentage of success be? How quickly will all of this unfold?
