Anti-vax politics needs to take its temperature
September 16, 2021
The anti-vaccination politics rolling across the country — much like a pandemic — have gotten so bad that the Alaska state Senate could not even manage to pass a bill last Friday allowing more telemedicine without lawmakers amending it into a debate over personal liberty.
Much of the discussion had no connection whatsoever to patients and doctors working together online to diagnose and treat ailments often totally unrelated to COVID-19.
The Senate amendments were targeted at blocking businesses, state agencies and local governments from requiring vaccinations of workers or customers.
