Why should people be forced to take a COVID-19 vaccine?
As I saw in a comment on YouTube, if vaccines protect users from disease, and the government has a right to protect people from disease, why does the government also have a right to force everyone to get vaccinated, when those who are vaccinated, are already protected from the disease? In other words, if someone who is afraid to get COVID-19 gets vaccinated, and becomes protected from the disease, why is it necessary to force others to get vaccinated, to prevent them from (by chance) spreading the disease? I view big pharma and its regulators (particularly in the area of vaccines) as being a cesspool of collusion, corruption, misrepresentations, and outright lies. Why should I and others who hardly trust a word these actors say, be forced to take their vaccines, which largely serves to make them immensely richer?
Again, COVID-19 for most people (particularly those who are not vulnerable to the disease [e.g. the elderly, those with underlying health conditions]) is less dangerous than the flu. Why should people be forced to take a vaccine for a respiratory disease (similar to the common cold and the flu) that is less dangerous than the flu, when they have misgivings about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine?
