The new liberal mantra ‘no jab no job’

Blog post by Marica Micallef

To think that someone can lose a job because he refuses to take a vaccine might have sound laughable some years ago but it has become a reality. It is the label that liberals are using. It became the catchy phrase and is now replacing the other phrase “a conspiracy theorist”.

In an article by the UK news portal, “The Independent”, Sean O’ Grady states that “This is what we do about anti-vaxxers: No job. No entry. No NHS access”[1]. The guidelines that this “human” put forth are “No jab, no job; no jab, no access to NHS healthcare; no jab, no state education for your kids. No jab, no access to pubs, restaurants, theatres, cinemas, stadiums. No jab, no entry to the UK, and much else”, while he still admits that his question as to what should be done with the anti-vaxxers is presumptuous “because they’re human beings, same as the majority of the population who choose to take the Covid-19 vaccines, and we’re all entitled to do what we will or won’t with our own bodies.”  

Yes, exactly Mr. O’Grady! We have a right to medical choices, and kindly note that this labelling of vaxxers and anti-vaxxers is not only dividing society into two, but it is a pathetic fallacy that does not hold. This is a medical choice and it is up to the individual. Do you know that you are breaching the fundamental human rights of the individual while employers and governments who will take your advice, will also be guilty of such?

Do you know, dear governments and employers, that you are going against Resolution 2361 (2021) of the EU Parliamentary Assembly on the ethical, legal and practical considerations on Covid-19 vaccines, especially points 7.3.1 and 7.3.2 ((https://pace.coe.int/en/files/29004/html) which state:

7.3.1: “ensure that citizens are informed that the vaccination is NOT MANDATORY and that no one is under political, social or other pressure to be vaccinated if they do not wish to do so”.

7.3.2: “ensure that no one is discriminated against for not having been vaccinated, due to possible health risks or not wanting to be vaccinated”. Doesn’t the argument that the vaccine is protecting people against the virus hold, or not? Then why did they take this vaccine? If a person took the vaccine, then Mr. O’Grady’s argument that “Who wants their grandma looked after by someone with coronavirus, or teaching in a school full of kids sneezing the Indian variant everywhere, or to watch a football game with someone coughing their viral load all over you?” does not hold. IF YOU ARE VACCINATED, THEN YOU ARE PROTECTED!!
