Californians back proof of COVID vaccine or negative test at workplaces, other venues

Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, director of the medical ethics program at UC Irvine and a member of Orange County’s vaccine task force, has said he understands concerns over such proposals and tying vaccinations to some activities. “If private entities start developing policies that deploy that tool as a gatekeeper, then I think the fears and concerns that many people are trying to express … will be borne out,” he said. … I’m ‘pro’ let the person decide.
