A major issue that many people who are opposed to vaccination and other mitigation efforts like mask wearing, social distancing, etc. seem to fail to understand is that those who are not following mitigation efforts are not just putting themselves at risk. Instead, the anti-mitigation people are risking themselves, everyone they come into contact with, and then the people who come into contact with the people exposed to/by the anti-mitigation people are also at risk.
What many who seem intent on demanding "their rights" keep failing to realize or perhaps it is a failure to acknowledge, is that their behavior does not just impact them.
So, by all means one can opt to not be vaccinated, but also understand that because other people wish to be protected, there can be restrictions placed on where one can go, and what one can do if they have decided to not get vaccinated.
Also, TBH the value of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hrs is IMO not much. It can take as long as 5 days from the time of exposure before there is sufficient quantity of virus to show in a test. So one could easily have been exposed and infected and show a negative, or have been tested negative, then get exposed and become infected in the intervening 72 hours.
So do you believe we should be proactive in preventing Influenza the same way people want to restrict freedom of movement for unvaccinated for covid, after all both have roughly the same mortality rate in Australia using the statistics
