    Ok, it's Singapore rather than here.

    It's not our style of doing things, but it's interesting to see how the rest of the world handles antivaxers.

    No, our 'style' is doing things by stealth...

    The 'Jab or Job' has started, so would you consider that a fine?

    And just out of interest how would you define an 'anti vaxxer'?

    A person who wishes not to have any vaccinations?
    Or a person who wishes not to have a vaccination for the current 'virus'?

    Definitely an antivaxer
    Probably still an antivaxer, they often claim to evaluate each vaccine individually and will take any they think are worth it, but then just happen to reject them all.

    No. It's a sensible public health measure.

    I've had many vaccines over my lifetime, and approved them for our children before they became of age to make their own choices.

    But I happen to think that at this moment in time not enough research has been done for these multiple vaccines/boosters ...

    So am I an 'anti vaxxer'?

    So you believe depriving someone of making a living due to their belief against forced medication isn't a fine?

    What other jabs do you think should be made compulsory because they are according to you 'a sensible public health measure'?

    More pertinent would be to ask which vaccines did you refuse for your children or you. You might just be a new convert to the Antivaxer herd.

    Tried and trusted technology, nothing to worry about.

    Oh dear...

    You're really digging yourself a bigger hole aren't you!

    I've had a tetanus booster (due to a nasty encounter with a rusty nail) since deciding not to have the 'virus' jab(s) at this present time...

    Does that make me an anti vaxxer?

    Yes or no!

    Maybe you could tell us why trials on all control groups (especially children) haven't fully taken place/been evaluated?

    If people looking after some of the most vulnerable in our society can't take a simple vaccine then that is their own fault.

    The first, absolutely not, they are exercising a right, perhaps a religious edict from their church/faith.
    The second perhaps yes, because the 'tone' of the remark would fall into my anti vaxxer definition.

    Anti vaxxer: a person who eschews vaccinations because of suspicion of their origin, but is unwilling to simply go about their business letting others do the same; protests 'for' anti vaxxing in ways (IMO) that are often aggressive and threatening; shouts about 'rights', when the fundamental right of choice they have open to them and have exercised. Finally, they would think it abhorrent if, when sick from the illness the vax may have prevented, they are not pushed to the front.
