Hi Mike. Her selfish actions, or lack of, perfectly typify the consequences for others. I’ve long thought that politicians have tackled the issue of vaccine passports from the wrong direction in that the onus should be on those who won’t get vaccinated to prove that they are medically exempt and if not they should be penalised.

I'm with you Eric and I would take it a step further too.
I have long held the opinion that if these selfish anti-vax idiots live in a country that provides free (or subsidized) healthcare then when they get COVID (which they eventually will) they should not be taken straight into the ICU in front of everyone else who may need the facilities too but should be made to stay at a secure, quarantined, location until a space becomes available. They should also be charged the full costs involved for their care on the principle that if the idiots rejected the free preventative healthcare (i.e. the vaccine) then they automatically rejected any free follow-up healthcare when they get sick too!
In countries where people have to pay extortionate rates for healthcare (like our American neighbours to the south) then the insurance companies should cancel any insurance coverage for positive testing anti-vaxers! You would think the insurance companies would jump at the chance to refuse coverage as they seem eager to do it at any other time things look like getting expensive for them!
Vaccine mandates have existed as long as there have been vaccines to treat illnesses and they work, just look at the modern infection rates for things like measles, polio, TB, smallpox etc., etc., etc. In every case where vaccines are available the infection rate is dramatically reduced when the majority of the population are vaccinated.
Bottom line ........... if you reject the vaccine then you automatically reject any follow-up health care too. You made your choice now live with the consequences!
