    Of course they’re vaccinated and probably shoved your 90 year old granny out of the queue to get it.

      or they are probably the ones who organize buses to Northern Ireland so that people can get their healthcare seen so?

    On this point I agree with them on hundred percent.
    The only person you should be required to discuss sensitive medical date with is your GP or another healthcare professional who can properly interpret it. Simple as that.
    And the government announced that restaurant workers were exempt from having a vaccine passport to work, the scam should have been clear for all to see. Staff that mingle with customer the whole time and undoubtedly the biggest risk of passing on infection to vulnerable people.
    But then again, when people were told that they would still have to wear masks after being vaccinated. They just went along with that.
    Given the recent HSE data hacking boom would trust these fuppers with compiled sensitive information.
    And make no mistake about it, if the government can get a substantial amount of the public to buy into this system, in time, there will be a lot more than medical information in the qr code. Eventually it will be a type of social credit system.

      I agree totally.

      Except for one trivial point. I don’t think my vaccination status is sensitive medical data.

    Wouldn’t it just be easier if the unvaccinated wore a a badge or something so people could spot them.

    1. Daisy Chainsaw

      Ah yes, it would fuel their victim complex exponentially and really make them feel as if they’re being treated exactly the same as Jews in WW2 or Black people in South Africa.

    2. Cui Bono?

      Why would the vaccinated need to know if others have had it?

      Does the vaccine not work?

      If it works, then you’re protected.

      If it doesn’t work, then it doesn’t matter because they don’t work.

    Sorry, but I see here in your medical history that you had a gastric bypass – we dont want any cheapskates in our restaurant. Fupp off

    For months and months now – too long – people have been griping and telling us that the hospitality industry is on its knees and needs to be reopened.

    Now it’s being reopened but the one stipulation is that to sit inside you have to have been vaccinated. So just get it and move on with your lives.

    I pity the publicans, who will now have to deal with the wasters who will turn up at their door protesting about this. If you want to help, get vaccinated. If you can’t get vaccinated, get a GP’s letter.

      I’ve had Covid. 9 months ago.

      Why do I need to get a vaccine?

      Why am I not allowed to dine inside?

      1. newsjustin

        Ask your doctor if you need the vaccine.

        If you don’t, get a letter, and you should be allowed eat inside at restaurants in my opinion.

        1. Micko

          Letters don’t work.

          Pal of mine was refused entrance to a Dublin City centre cinema last week even though he has a cert which makes him exempt from wearing a mask. He has a lung complaint.

          He had the cert with him and they still wouldn’t let him in. They wouldn’t even look at the cert.


          1. Cian

            If he has a lung complaint he shouldn’t be out in public – there is a nasty bug going about!

          1. Micko

            I’ve always tried to give people the benefit of the doubt SOQ.

            I’m reluctantly starting to think that they are just stupid.

            I don’t like feeling this way about people. :(

      If I’m vaccinated, what do I care whether or not the person sitting next to me in a restaurant or pub (or other indoor venue) is vaccinated? Either the vaccines work or they don’t. This is pure coercion by the State. I feel for businesses who have been put in this invidious position.

      1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

        that’s the part I don’t get, don’t the vaccines protect you

        1. scottser

          well they give you less of a chance of dying, so me? i couldn’t give a monkeys about anyone else and will happily roll around in spittle and droplets till the cows come home.

          1. Micko

            Exactly. Which is fine.

            If you’re worried about covid. You should get a vaccine.

            We need to stop pretending it about helping others.

            It’s not.

        2. Cian

          They are like seatbelts.

          The offer a lot of protection, but aren’t 100% effective… and it is safest if everyone in the car is wearing their seatbelt.

          The measles vaccine is “only” 97% effective: you can still get the measles if you’re vaccinated…. but we get maximum protection when a large majority of people are vaccinated.

          1. ce

            We have ourselves a dangerous thinker… with “scientific facts” about how vaccinations work… bet Bill Gates is paying you to post this kind of nonsense…

          2. f_lawless

            A better description of your seat belt analogy would be this: if I’m wearing my seat belt in my car, I’m sure I’m helping protect other people in other cars who may or may not be wearing their seat belts. Don’t ask me how it works, it just does.

          3. Cui Bono?

            That’s incorrect Cian.

            The majority of people already have natural immunity to covid so don’t need a vaccine for it.

      2. SB

        Define ‘work’? My brother was watching a Euro match inside a pub in England last week with 3 mates. All 4 vaccinated. 3 of them have since tested positive. So the vaccine didn’t stop them getting it. But they’re not hospitalised, so at least they’re not putting pressure on the health service. It’s not black and white, vaccinated/unvaccinated don’t catch\catch. It as about reducing transmission, and reducing severity if you get it.
        If the businesses don’t like it, then stay closed until 2023 when we’re past this.

      why should vaccinated people who are healthy and virus free not have equal access to everywhere vaccinated people do? What’s your logic behind wanting to discriminate against your fellow citizens? In fact, an unvaccinated person with a clear antigen test poses less threat than a vaccinated person who has contracted the virus but doesn’t realise it because they falsely belive themselves immune.

      1. Cui Bono?

        You’re correct but we can’t go down the road of having to get an antigen test every time we go to the shop for milk etc.

        We would end up having to have multiple tests per week and it will lead to coercion into taking the unneeded vaccine.

        We need to help wake up the masses so they realise they’ve been fooled.

        1. ce

          “You’re correct but we can’t go down the road of having to get an antigen test every time we go to the shop for milk etc. “… or you could just wear a proper mask properly when you get the milk… radical concept that it is…

  6. scottser

    doubtful that any healy-rae will ask their customers for a vaccine proof in any of their pubs so.
