Lot of countries introduced a sugar tax. Things shot up in price because of it. Will that stop people eating bad food? No. Why? Because they want to. Just like people want to drink and smoke. If you offered a person Covid I am sure they would turn it down. Even though it is free. But those same people continue to eat junk food and drink and smoke. Should visit Ireland. Talking some high prices for smokes here. But people will still buy them. Some are personal choices. Covid is not a choice. It happens. Luck of the draw.

But they do mandate smoking in many public places because second hand smoke is harmful to those not smoking. Much like spreading Covid may be harmful to others. Some also pay higher insurance premiums if their BMI is in the unhealthy range or they smoke.

I was not posting anything about vaccine mandates, but refuting the false statement that the vaccines don’t work.

The covid vaccines don't stop people from getting and spreading covid, so they don't actually work like other vaccines.

The flu shot is only about 50% effective each year. The Covid vaccines provided good protection against the earlier variants. Omicron seems to be more transmissible even among vaccinated, but the vax still keeps 99+% of people who get it out of the hospital or from dying. I’d say it’s working as well as it could be considering this virus is only two years old. They are still working on improved vaccines and antivirals which, hopefully, will move us closer to ending the pandemic.

The pandemic is almost over. Covid is now endemic and it will stay that way - just like the flu. People have the option to refuse the flu vaccine and they should have the option to refuse the covid vaccine too.

I never said otherwise. We’ll see if it’s almost over. One variant that seems to be less deadly than the others does not mean we are out of the woods anytime soon. Experts disagree on whether the pandemic is close to coming to an end. We will have to wait and see. The more people who are vaccinated and/or exposed to Covid the faster we get there.
