A: So far, it is not illegal. The law about Covid vaccination is in a process of constant changes due to the differing opinions of diverse groups. One day you are prohibited from appearing in public on a mask that conceals your identity and the next day you are required to wear one. Personally, I think you should be proud to wear the wristband to show how intelligent you are to be vaccinated. Vaccines have helped eradicate or almost eliminate Polio, Smallpox and Measles, despite false news reports about vaccines that have been going on for years. You are helping to save lives, and put a stop to this pandemic. Be patient, we are still in a state of crisis, and it is difficult to be in a state of crisis for a prolonged period of time.
