Teller County Votes Against Bribing People To Get Vaccinated
In an odd turn of events, Teller County will not be bribing its residents to take the Covid-19 vaccine. Instead, they will be doing something many oppose – allowing people to exercise personal freedom of choice. It turns out that the majority of adults are capable of making their own decisions in their day-to-day life.
For instance, those that are concerned about being around the unvaccinated in public can opt to get the vaccine.
Many have spoken out about this rise in personal choice, calling it “outdated like the constitution” and “dog whistles form nationalism”. Timmy Whitmiter, a local transplant from California, stated “Sure I’m vaccinated, but it’s the unvaccinated that could give me Covid. The vaccine only works if everyone is vaccinated”.
Despite some individuals calling this a reckless endangerment, many have applauded the measure. Jimbo McRufle said that “I’d rather see my tax dollars at work for something better, like doing something about the darn deer here or maybe just giving it to a local school”.
Some may remember earlier this year when Governor Polis offered $100 Walmart Gift Cards to residents who got vaccinated. This is odd since Walmart, like most big-box stores, was one of the only businesses that seemed exempt from any mandates being enforced or affecting sales.
Local protests are already scheduled, and Dr. Faucci has already stated he’d be willing to stand in front of literally any camera to shame our town.
