  1. Note the subtle spin …”refusing the vaccine”… Replace the word refusing with opting out and your perception of the situation will likely change.

    I imagine The Refusers exercised their God given sovereignty and decided to “opt out.” “Refused” is customary medical system jargon used to pressure patients by imposing shame for disobeying a doctor or these days anyone in a lab coat. If a doctor says something like, “You need a tetanus shot to bring your schedule up to speed” and you say no thank you, they write “Refused” in you chart. What a nightmare. My medical chart grade must be something like F- .

    It’s likely that NIH & CDC offered comp time to employees to go and get the jab during working hours and there were facilities on campus within a five minute walk. No cost, no hassle. Hmmm, even with all the incentives they still “refused.”
