Virginia Plans Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations For All Residents

Virginia Plans Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations For All Residents
As Friday’s hospitalization numbers across the Sun Belt appear to confirm CDC head Dr. Robert Redfield’s assertion that the American COVID-19 outbreak has peaked and is starting to fade, the State of Virginia is setting a new precedent by seriously discussing forcing Virginians to be vaccinated with whatever rushed-to-marked candidate the FDA approves first. 
During an interview that aired on Friday, the state’s health commissioner said he planned to invoke state law to make vaccinations mandatory – once a western product is available, presumably.

Covid will be around ‘FOREVER’ and Brits will need ‘repeated vaccinations’, warns SAGE scientist who says Boris being forced to impose another national lockdown is ‘possible’ but ‘local ones more likely’

Forced vaccinations? Total loss of personal freedom and right to choose a course of action or inaction.

I would move, before I would allow anyone to give me the jab with something I did not want to take.

This is an absolute violation of the 4th amendment.

Last two paragraphs at the link (emphasis mine):

Oliver believes that COVID-19 is a public health emergency that should take precedent over everything else, and that vaccine-assisted herd immunity is the state’s best and only real defense.

The decision comes after Massachusetts said it would make the flu vaccine mandatory this year as part of a campaign to protect the state's medical system. We suspect Virginia and Massachusetts won't be the only states to discuss mandatory COVID and/or flu vaccination in the coming weeks, as the school year begins.

I look for every state with a Dem governor to mandate the vaccine.

In the coming weeks as the school year begins.?

Do they have a vaccine?
