Is this a call to persuade more to get vaccinated? So you can't dine in restaurants if you aren't vaccinated?

two weeks ago it was Chinese Privilege. Next week it's Vaxxed Privilege. Or if you are an opposition follower here, it will be Unvaxxed Discrimination.

Oh, and the wearing of designation that you are unvaxxed on construction sites? Reminds me of how it all started in Germany in the run up to WWII. Making undesirables wear the "Star of David" where it could be seen by all, especially the brownshirts. (My grandparents immigrated to the US from Germany between the two WWs - so my history lessons were pretty close to home)
Doesn't seem like a bad idea, but once precedence is set escalation is easy. What's next?

I see ERP (electronic restaurant pricing) in our future - - no vax and get a tax!

So one of us is totally vaccinated and the other needs 3 weeks till shot 2 and then 2 weeks after before we can dine in at McDonalds sometime in late September.
Will malls work the same way. Will this be done using Trace Together?

One person, unvaccinated, passed away yesterday from complications due to COVID-19 infection.

Not trying to be discrete about their push for vaccination. That's good in my opinion.

I could be wrong, but I believe that if you are vaccinated but with a non WHO approved vaccine, they might count you as unvacccinated.
