Do many airlines mandate vaccines for travelers?

What I don’t like about the people who refuse to get vaccinated is the tax paying public then pay for weeks in the ICU to try and pull them back from the jaws of death. Saw one case where hospital bill was 1.5 million and now the person believes vaccines are a good thing. Maybe limit medical reimbursement for those who refuse to get vaccinated to the cost of vaccine.

That's legitimate but only if you apply that same logic to fat people, people who drink, people who smoke, people who don't exercise.

Plus that only applies with socialised health care, not in the US

It certainly does apply in the US. Thousands of antivaxxers have died in hospitals after racking up millions in bills which they or their families can’t pay. Guess who ultimately pays.

Wrong!

Unreimbursed care is my healthcare facilities Number 2 expense after salaries.

It costs the system Billions of $$$ every year.

And that's not to mention that we all pay Medicare taxes - and a huge number of people are on Medicare.

Conservatives whined for years about unreimbursed care, then when the only possible thing you could do to solve the problem, which was require health insurance or be taxed, they did everything possible to have that provision removed from the affordable care act.

Not sure France is going to be the friend of someone trying to avoid Covid rules.
Spain requires Vaccination and, despite it not being described, appears to be testing on arrival as well (wife flew to Madrid this past week).

Hey, Christmasoopma. You banned me for disagreeing with your narrative. Essentially for being right and standing up to your tyranny in using your "authority" as a moderator to ban people who contradict your WRONG, hysterical, emotional reaction to the Covid pandemic. I'm sorry your friends died, I'm sorry you feel that means random strangers have to bow to your incorrect medical conclusions.

But have you now got the integrity to admit you were wrong? To admit you overeacted and abused a stranger without justification? To admit you are a bully and to admit the pathetic bit of power you have got to control a conversation that you don't like, has gone to your head?

No worries if you don't. Just ban me again. But for the record, you were wrong and are still wrong. If you have any self respect you will apologize but I really hope you see this, delete the message and ban me, because it will show you for what you truly are and you will have to live with that.

What I do with my body impacts you or your friends or hospitals in no way. I have a nice little letter from my doctor with my positive antibody result from my recent covid infection that I hardly noticed. I'll be off to Spain and enjoying myself in great health and putting no one at risk in anyway whatsoever knowing I made an informed decision not to take a risk with a new vaccine that protect me from something I am not at risk of.

Sure, as a vaccinated person I won't end up in the ICU (or so they say) if I do become a breakthrough sufferer, but flying for hours with unvaccinated people puts me off flying altogether.
When are they going to have flights without crazy people? Is this you below? Did you get out of jail yet?

I didn't remember who on earth you were, but I've just looked up your posts and the reasons for your bans. I see you are still the same charming chap.

Just FYI, you weren't banned for having a different point of view from most of us. You were banned because you broke the site rules you agreed to when you signed up to this forum (rules 1 and 16 specifically), but you know that really. It just doesn't fit your tin foil hat narrative to admit that it was your fault that you were banned. There are several people who share the same point of view as you, they haven't been banned, because they're managed to put their point of view across eloquently and respectfully, and without opening multiple accounts. If you'd done the same you'd still be a forum member.

Oh, and I haven't banned you just FYI, but it seems you're not a fan of facts. Good luck with your trip to Spain btw, seeing as they're still only letting vaccinated in for tourism, I'd love to know how that goes.

Maybe you should put a formal complaint in to the tyrannical bullying mod that banned him.

I feel sure he'll be back again, maybe we'll let him stick around next time just to give you all a bit of fun.
