gen con survey asked if people would be more willing to come if vaccines were required. i don't know if they released results, but if a live convention does happen, it could be a choice for them between people who checked "yes" to that, and people like jetermi, who apparently don't plan to get vaccinated.
also, a waiver probably does nothing. the con needs to be safe. even if a waiver would prevent your family from suing, but is there even any precedent for that? and it'd still be pretty bad for the organization if they let people sign a waiver instead and then 6 of them died.
if liability waiver is your solution then your original question was never about your questions, it was always about the fact that you don't plan to get vaccinated. that's a choice you can make. but gen con still needs to do what it needs to do. and so do state and local health officials. personally, i think it is completely fair for them to require vaccines and i said as much in the survey. but, if they do feel the need to do that, i hope it is part of public health recommendations rather than a pr move. but perception is, i'm sure, a worry as well
So yeah, full disclosure, I don't plan on getting vaccinated....I have an auto-immune disorder as does everyone in my immediate family, it is hereditary. I have read numerous articles recommending against people with auto immune disorders getting the vaccine at this time. I also had COVID 6 weeks ago, so probably wouldn't in light of that either, especially since we have no evidence that the vaccine would provide any stronger immunization than that which naturally occurs after getting it.
And now I am back to the original question.....
Facts from the CDC Website:
The mRNA vaccine creates a spike protein that will help you fight off COVID quicker once you get it.
The vaccination doesn't keep you from getting COVID or spreading COVID.
Why would Gencon require the vaccine if you can still get it and spread it? How does this vaccine make the Con safer? They do not based on what the CDC has told us about this vaccine. Maybe I am being too analytical about this....so I wouldn't invite you to help me understand why my logic is flawed?
