I'm not sure what you mean by vaccine related illness. Much of that would be adverse event reporting. Which is common to all medications. But I don't see anyone falling into histrionics over thoseWhat exactly does exponentially less mean? Have you subtracted the vaccine related illnesses and death? How? The Pfizer/FDA vaccine application documents won't be available for 55 years at 500 pages at a time. ha ha
Exactly whose severe illness or death?
Your management issues over my bad cold is not my problem. Persons at work be they employees or customers who are unvaccinated only affect themselves because of their personal choice. Your governmental prerogatives are out of bounds concerning forced medical procedure and established human norms that can be found evolved as the result of the Nuremberg trials from which informed consent as a prime principle was conceptualized yet again. Ask Hippocrates and a number of other such physicians of historical note. If you want to find edge cases feel free but the fact remains it is not my moral duty to submit to any medical procedure let alone a questionable one for somebody else's benefit.
You're giving credit to a vaccine what is just as likely to have occurred naturally - epidemics become more contagious and less severe over time as a matter of the natural course of a disease.
In your context with the vaccine it remains my informed consent to protect myself and loved ones, right? I don't see you having asked a novel question.
I'll indulge you. If I live in India or Africa, say as a "colonialist", I do get and give mine the polio vaccine despite the risk of vaccine acquired polio because of the native conditions of hygiene. Might even fly to the states for that purpose. On the other hand a polio shot, living in the U.S. at this time in history, I might consider at least delaying the vaccination of a child to allow for a more mature physical disposition and avoid potential adverse reactions. Given the understanding of polio it might even be advisable to only take the polio shot should it actually occur in a geographically near outbreak situation. Some vaccines have such a bad reputation that simply finding... nevermind you couldn't be bothered to watch Dr. Andrew Wakefiled's basement dwelling video. I'll just stop because it is literally pointless to reiterate what you can't be bothered to watch from a highly educated individual.
It does remain your informed consent to do with as you see fit. It remains mine as well and my informed consent tells me that we don't need you in my workplace. See?
