If you are unvaccinated against the coronavirus and are living in Chicago, Illinois, then according to Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D), “Your time is up.”
Breitbart reports that Lightfoot is implementing a new coronavirus vaccine passport system that will ban unvaccinated individuals from participating in many aspects of life.
Lightfoot announced the new vaccine passport system on Tuesday. Now, in order to get access to bars, restaurants, theaters, and more, the people of Chicago will have to prove, starting January 3rd, that they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus. They will also have to provide a photo ID.
Reports indicate that children as young as five years of age will have to abide by Lightfoot’s new order. Employees, however, are still allowed to go the weekly testing route, rather than get vaccinated.
And, as for how long it will be in effect, it appears that the answer is “indefinitely.”
Lightfoot said that the program will “remain in effect until the City deems that the threat of COVID-19 to public health has diminished significantly.”
“Your time is up”
Lightfoot made it clear while announcing the new passport program that she is taking direct aim at unvaccinated individuals.
“We didn’t want it to get to this point, but given the situation we find ourselves in, we have no choice,” Lightfoot tweeted.
She continued in a separate tweet:
To put it simply, if you have been living vaccine-free, your time is up. If you wish to live life as w/the ease to do the things you love, you must be vax’d. This health order may pose an inconvenience to the unvaccinated, and in fact it is inconvenient by design.
Lightfoot also said that whether “more extreme” measures are taken will depend entirely on “the unvaccinated.
“Our future is gonna depend upon whether or not they stop being hesitant and get the vaccine,” she said. “I don’t want to shut the economy down. I don’t want to have to take other mitigation steps. We have been through hell and back in the last 20 months. Nobody wants to go back to that time, least of all me. … We hope the alarm we sound today gets through to people.”
Sounds like another COVID-tyrant is back to living large thanks to the omicron variant.
