Reminder this information is also part of ones personal health information act and you have the right to not answer when asked whether you choose to get the shot or not.
So whether you
You’re okay in my books and I respect YOUR DECISION
You’re NOT ok in my book when you start being rude to others because they made a decision that was BEST for them.
