It's coercion. Different tactic, same end result.

Frankly I don't give a fuck if some selfish stupid prick has to get coerced into having a vaccine so he stops spreading a virus and killing people.

The world doesn't revolve around the 5% of idiots who think a vaccine is a conspiracy.

If you've got fears about a vaccine, stay at home until you're convinced, just like all the immunocompromised people have been house ridden for 10 months because they can't risk going out. Read about it, educate yourself.

If you really think it's a giant conspiracy then you will forgo seeing James Bond or going to Prezzo to stay safe.

We need 95%+ uptake for the virus to die out in the population. Until that point people are still going to be dying.

Indeed, but when was the last time you had to get a health passport out at your local cinema? It's clearly very different.
Well that should be left to the establishment imho. But it would probably make sense for them to introduce such a policy themselves to attract people back to safe environments.

Well, good for you. Once again, and I feel the need to keep repeating this as there's a huge subtext implying that you think I feel this way, I'm not anti-vaccine. My issues with this just come from the whole 'well, what next?' can of worms that it opens. You're alright to disagree. Fair enough. Anyway, presuming you're around the same age as me, that means an awful fucking long time of no fun given we'll be right near the bottom of the queue anyway!

You do know that the slippery slope/thin end of the wedge/can of worms argument is literally a famous logical fallacy that's been disproven a million times?

I know you're not anti-vax, and I know you and I (I'm 28) will be right at the end of the queue, but I don't think you have grasped how difficult it is to wipe this virus out, and the amount of uptake needed. It's not 60%, it's closer to 95%.
