Ticketmaster Requiring Vaccination Proof For Concerts

I think it would be irresponsible for them not to. Why risk massive events with unvaccinated people? It is a sure fire way to get people sick

 

I am for this, personally 

EDIT- The article says a fan can also provide proof of a negative test 24-72 hours prior to the event. 72 hours is dumb as fuck, it looks like this is all just mumbo jumbo so TM can say they are taking safety into account, but actually not

Part of me is shocked, but part of me isnt, if that makes sense.

Yeah. I'm sure it will be the same for international travelling. They can't force anyone to get a vaccine. But they can say, you only get in, if you have one.

That said, the only people at risk, are the ones that are not vaccinated though. So why not let it run it's course? People, who are afraid or in a risk group get vaccinated. People, who are affraid of the vaccine or don't care duke it out amongst themselves.

Because that is still potentially hundreds of thousands of deaths.

"Potentially". Most people do not die due to Covid. Most people who are afraid of Corona or are at risk with preexisting conditions presumably will get a vaccination or stay away. If they expect others to do the vaccination and the associated risk that comes with a new vaccination for them to keep them save, they're mistaken and do not really have any grounds to complain.

As is the case with other vaccines there will likely be immunocompromised and immunosuppressed people who, on a case-by-case basis, might not be able to receive the vaccine.

So the testing results is a welcomed option. Hopefully testing becomes easier.

Probably another quintessentially ''Tickermasterish'' scam to lump on yet more 'booking fees'' - at least that will be their priority, decorated as ''concern for public health''. What a truly horrible company they are.

Are they going to drag people kicking and screaming to the vaccination clinic? Utterly absurd.

No. They don't. But that's how they make people get vaccinations. You wanna do certain things, get vaccinated or stay out. In a way understandable, in a way fucked up. To force people through the back door to subject themselves to a new and (longtime) untested vaccination.

This is a fascinating debate for those who spend time thinking about neoliberalism. Neoliberlism in both its natural corporate state and its unnatural interpersonal manifestation.

Because LN is said to be imposing its neoliberal prerogative to have the market and regulations yield to its desires and choices.

But those objecting are in fact imposing their individualistic desire to do what they want with out regards to the many.

Its the same "me" based desire. Its the exact same neoliberal argument being made by the opposing sides!

What are we if not all individuals with our personal freedom, choice and desires though? You take that away by imposing fascistic regulations like the threat of perfectly law abiding citizens not being allowed to go to a public event unless they acquiesce to you injecting them with whatever and you're on a very slippery slope indeed.

Me taking that particular stance isn't going to affect anyone but me as I would simply choose not to go rather than bow to that kind of bullshit.

It does, however, boil my piss to think that some weak-willed twat would even consider allowing themselves to be harpooned against their better judgement simply because they are itching to see fucking Michael Bolton or some other bollocks.
