(ConservativeInsider.org) – One of the wonderful things about the United States is most businesses have the right to operate how they wish, more or less. However, the local governments are stepping in and forcing companies to change their ways in some cities across the country. Officials in San Francisco just announced that children as young as five years old will have to show proof of vaccination to enter restaurants, gyms, and other indoor areas in the coming weeks.
On Tuesday, November 2, San Francisco Health Officer Dr. Susan Philip told listeners during a virtual town hall that children ages five and up must show proof of vaccination to enter indoor venues approximately eight weeks from the meeting. This announcement came shortly after the CDC approved the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for use in children as young as five.
Fox News contributor David Webb contrasted this move with California’s laws on illegal aliens on Twitter:
In #SanFrancisco children between the ages of 5 and 11 have to prove who they are to get a #vaccine so they can enter a building, but #illegalaliens can now permanently #vote when many can’t prove like an American or a lawfully present person who they are. Makes sense.

While forcing children to receive the vaccine in order to enter indoor areas may prevent a slight amount of the spread of COVID-19, people who are fully vaccinated can still transmit the disease and children have a COVID-19 death rate of below 0.1%. With these facts in hand, many Americans see this latest mandate as intense government overreach for something that, for most children, parents deem unnecessary.
