It's a smart business policy to require proof of vaccination, as swell as a socially responsible one. Particularly in the restaurant and bar business, which thrive on repeat business,
if they allow Typhoid Marty in, it will kill off the regular clientele. I won't go into the often-made argument that a business owner has the right to do what they wish. Everyone knows the drill: private property, sincerely-held beliefs, freedom.

So reminiscent of when capitalistic enterprises in America embraced the scientific reality and banned smoking from their premises in the interests of the public and their employees.

The "It's all about ME!" social deviants and fanatics for permissiveness raved inanely then as well, but normal folks prevailed.

That public health measure was long in the making. By the early 17th century, scientists and philosophers were discovering the consequences that smoking tobacco had on their lives, including difficulty with breathing and trouble with quitting. In 1632, Massachusetts passed a state law making smoking in public illegal...
In 1964, the Surgeon General’s report on smoking tobacco was released, shining light on the serious health effects cigarettes were causing. This report also allowed the government to initiate the regulation of the production and sales of cigarettes.

Let's hope that being vaccinated against covid is recognized as eminently responsible and sensible by the lunatic fringe and the duty of patriotic Americans is more expeditiously, albeit begrudgingly, accepted by them.

No, consideration for others should not need to be legislated or required by the private sector. When was the last time you saw a notice at the entrance to Tiffany's "Please do not urinate on our jewelry"? But, unfortunately, some obdurate individuals need such sanctions.
