This week, in Washington State, as well as many other states, it was announced that immunizations would be required for healthcare workers, as well as employees in businesses with 100+ employees.

A commentary in an interview I heard from an elected official had, in my opinion, a great “comeback” describing that:
Requiring people to get vaccinated is just like requiring people not to exceed a speed limit when driving. It became a policy/law in order to protect other drivers on the road, as well as the driver.
