All those who contend that their freedom of choice is being violated by vaccine mandates might be interested to know that in 1777 Gen. George Washington required troops to be immunized “even against their will “ for smallpox . Doing this made smallpox largely disappear from the Continental Army, allowing it to fight more effectively to win our freedom. It’s somewhat ironic considering the pushback we have from anti-vaccinators today.
The father of our country knew what was necessary to win the war so we could live in freedom from tyranny, and that included a vaccine mandate.
