I really don't have an issue with vaccines being mandatory but I do feel 
that if someone refuses the vaccine they they should be personally 
obligated for any medical costs incurred should they subsequently 
contract Covid and require medical services or hospitalization.

I do not feel that society should bear the burden for medical costs of 
this nature as a result of personal refusal to be vaccinated by someone.
