Dr. Anthony Fauci the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said that he hopes and wants at least 75%-80% to be vaccinated by the end of summer 2021.
So if we can get the overwhelming proportion of the population vaccinated by let’s say the end of the second, the beginning of the third quarter – by the time we get into mid-fall of 2021, we can be approaching some level of normality." He told CNBC News this directly. He also implied that not all will take the vaccination, "That would be able to protect even the vulnerables who have not been vaccinated, or those in which the vaccine has not been effective." This hopefully means that it will not be mandatory and that if everyone that wants to take it has taken it than it can protect those who choose not to, or for those who remain unaffected by the vaccine.
Dr. Fauci told Washington University that you can not force anyone to take any vaccine no matter how much you want to push it, "You don't want to mandate and try and force anyone to take the vaccine. We've never done that. You can mandate for certain groups of people like health workers, but for the general population you cannot," though it can be pushed for certain groups it will not be for the general population.
IS IT CONSTITUTIONAL?:
Dorit Reiss, a law professor at the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, told Today News that it is unconstitutional for the government to mandate this vaccine though it's unconstitutional to mandate anything as it goes against our rights; our free will. She said, "It has limited powers expressly spelled out in the Constitution; the rest belong to the states." The government cannot force anything directly, the most they can do it make it so that if you want to do a certain action like getting a passport, being a health worker, and etc. you have to take the vaccine.
States do have the power to push vaccines but they always have a drawback, for example, you don't want to take the mandatory vaccine you pay a fine, you pay a tax, or get some other penalty. At the end of the day it's not completely compulsory, but for the most part it is.
WHAT THE CONSITUTION STATES:
The constitution makes it very clear that we have the right to liberty, freedom, happiness, safety, and free will. Making anything mandatory goes against the constitution and our rights as humans to free will.
The Fourteenth Amendment addresses the rights of citizens, here is what Section One of the Fourteenth Amendment states, "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." This talks about how no state has the power to make anything compulsory unless they make it fair in all legal matters which in this case there's no way of doing that for it goes against our liberty and some peoples spiritual beliefs which than violates the First Amendment.
