Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins reported the situation is so dire that if a parent is seeking care for a sick or injured child, “your child will wait for another child to die.

Jenkins ordered that masks be worn inside schools earlier this week, and included county buildings and businesses after a judge blocked Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s ban on such rules. The county is not requiring people to show proof of vaccination yet.

Actually, science fiction writers have been pointing this out for close to 6 decades.
Officials claim the ‘proof-of-vaccination ‘requirement will translate into significant numbers of people getting the shots, something cash prizes and scholarships were unable to do.
The numbers of people seeking their first shot have increased over the past month, with nearly 46 percent of Louisiana’s residents starting the vaccine series. Only 38 percent of Louisiana’s population is fully vaccinated.
