Should TAC Members Or Staff Be Compelled to get the ‘vaccination’ ?

Apparently from the email announcement below, some members of the TAC, including the board of volunteer member leaders, must think that getting the ‘vaccination’ is a good thing. Should members or staff be compelled/encouraged/coerced into taking the experiential injection?

Below is a example of a recent promotional email from the board member in charge of the campaign using TAC facilities to injection residents of Minato ward. How much does this campaign cost the club?

“Member Vaccination Opportunity”

Dear Member, [6 AUG 2021

With the Club’s public COVID-19 vaccination center having administered more than 30,000 vaccine doses since early July, we are excited to be able to extend this program to those Members and their families residing outside of Minato Ward.

After discussions with Minato Ward officials, we can now offer vaccinations for 1,000 non-Minato Ward residents ages 12 and above.

Over the long weekend, Members will be sent a link to register themselves, extended family members, domestic helpers, friends, colleagues and employees of Member-run small businesses on a first-come, first-served basis.

The schedule for the two doses of the Moderna vaccine is as follows:

First dose
• August 11: 5–6:15pm (150 people)
• August 12: 5–6:15pm (150 people)
• August 13: 9:30am–12:30pm (350 people)
• August 13: 3–6pm (350 people)

Second dose
• September 3 (500 people)
• September 4 (500 people)

You will need to supply the name, address and a contact phone number for each person wishing to be included in this program.

Since this is a time-critical opportunity, I encourage you to prepare your list of people to be vaccinated and to apply as soon as you receive the registration link.

  1. Legally you cannot force health decisions on others. Members or employees.

  2. Definitely not. I am very disappointed that the board does things without consulting the membership. In this particular cases, there are two areas-

    1) They’re having financial difficulty and using that as an excuse to raise our dues, but they are using up a lot of staffing and running up expenses to turn the club into an injection center.

    2) There seems to be pressure on the employees to get jabbed. This should be an individual decision.
