    Effective from 7-26 presentation of a vaccination card is required to enter all public and private markets, convenience stores, or department stores.

    There is no doubt that 'vaccination by stealth' is very much on the cards here. The other thread about aliens being recorded (on what will be a national database) points in that direction.

    Hopefully they don't do that here until they have offered the vaccine to everyone. Society can't function if only the retired and sickly can go about daily life. You wouldn't even be able to order groceries online...unless the government going to force the elderly out of retirement and the sickly out of bed to go shopping for everyone else. I imagine everyone in lapu lapu is going to be forced to go grocery shopping in Cebu, which will make groceries store there even more crowded, decreasing the ability to social distance and increasing the chance of catching covid.

    Delta variant is surging through Lapu Lapu, currently 200 hospitalizations and 1 out of every 5 people testing positive. It's head-in-the-sand thinking to say it can't happen here. China refuses to release data about Sinovac effectiveness against delta variant, they just say if you've had both shots you should get a booster to improve effectiveness. They are using J&J here in Sibulan now, but J&J says their vaccine is only 30% effective against delta variant and also recommends a booster.

    And how is it at preventing serious illness? The time of not ever getting infected has came and passed. Covid is here to stay and it is likely almost everyone will eventually come in contact with it. The goal should be too prevent serious illness and death as much as possible without lockdowns and destroying economies. There will always be covid deaths, we just have to decide how many deaths are acceptable. If people choose not to get vaccinated that is on them just as it is with the elderly that don't get the flu vaccine.

    What "they" don't bother to tell us all is the Delta variant is much more communicable, but considerably weaker than the original virus. 1 in 1000 die from it.
    If that makes anyone feel any better...

    Not sure where you got that from? From what I've heard it is about three times more transmissable, more likely to effect young people, and the severity of symptoms are significantly worse from the delta variant.
