Los Angeles To Mandate Vaccines For To Have Freedom

I wonder how much business is driven to areas that are not the city of Los Angeles? But, hey, this kinda of Authoritarianism is what you folks vote for out there, so, no complaints

Los Angeles OKs one of strictest US vaccination mandates

Los Angeles leaders on Wednesday approved one of the nation’s strictest vaccine mandates — a sweeping measure that requires the shots for everyone entering bars, restaurants, nail salons, gyms or even a Lakers game.

The City Council voted 11-2 in favor of the ordinance that will require proof of full vaccination for patrons and workers starting Nov. 4.

Mayor Eric Garcetti signed it Wednesday afternoon.

“Vaccinating more Angelenos is our only way out of this pandemic, and we must do everything in our power to keep pushing those numbers up,” Garcetti said in a statement. “These new rules will encourage more people to get the shot, and make businesses safer for workers and customers — so that we can save more lives.

71% in the county, voted for Biden, I suspect that number might be a bit higher in the City of LA proper. Why is there this need to require proof, when 77.6% of LA County residents 12+ have at least one dose? Of course, the thing is, they aren’t vaccinated in full without the second dose. You’d think all these Dem voters would be vaccinated in full, right?

The move came after the City Council postponed a vote last week to deal with concerns ranging from who could be fined for violations to whether employees could end up in fist-fights when they have to serve as vaccine door monitors.

Some critics charge that a mandate would amount to segregation of those who cannot or refuse to be vaccinated. Others call it unenforceable.

Business trade groups have said the city mandate will sow confusion because Los Angeles County’s own vaccine rules — which apply both in Los Angeles and in dozens of surrounding communities — are less sweeping.

What of those who cannot be vaccinated? Those with religious issues? What of those with immunity? Will the city be sending police officers and other city workers out to enforce this? Meh, who cares about the rising crime rate.

Negative coronavirus tests within 72 hours of entry to those places would be required for people with religious or medical exemptions for vaccinations.

Ah. How soon till the are charged by Government for the tests? Want to go to the gym? Get a test every single day.

Council President Nury Martinez has said it is clear that the vaccines work but too many people remain unvaccinated despite widespread availability and door-to-door campaigns to vaccinate more people. She called the mandate “a necessary step towards returning to normalcy” and the lifting of mask requirements and other restrictions.

There’s always something new that’s a “necessary step”, eh? Remember when it was simply herd immunity?

Councilman John Lee also opposed the measure, calling it “punitive toward businesses,” which are required to request customer proof of vaccination. Businesses can be given a warning for a first offense but fined up to $5,000 for repeated violations of the rules, starting on Nov. 29.

Why November 29th? If this is So Darned Important, they’re going to wait over a month and a half? Also interesting that they’re going to wait till the Monday after Black Friday, giving people the chance to shop. Same people are also against any requirement to show your ID to vote.

    Gotta give them time to get both shots.

    But it won’t take long before they realize that white Californians are vaccinated at far higher rates than Hispanics here legally, and far, far higher rates than the illegals. They will be discriminating against Hispanics, and that will become a real flashpoint.
