I hope it would discriminate between concerns over rushed vaccine worries and conspiracy theories, which are all nonsense.
The problem with ignoring vaccinations is that it can impact others who don’t share your views, which is why I am more sympathetic to toughness. If anti-vaxxer nonsense only impacted those who believed then I’d be more sympathetic to letting them put themselves at risk, but it doesn’t. The effectiveness of vaccines is beyond question and there are a lot out to attack the vaccine regarding coronavirus, not from a position of knowledgeable scepticism, but conspiracies and paranoia about Bill Gates, autism, mind control and superstition.
We should be able to discriminate between legitimate concerns and the load of rubbish prevalent. We do so with hate speech and provocative speech. Neo-Nazis are at risk, but few other political ideologies are. We can deal with the blurs between right and far-right, surely we can here.
