Why is an individual's personal medical choice any of your business in the first place?
Yet others have pointed out that some may wish to display they are vaccinated because of the political position they hold and they doubt their honesty. There does seem to be an issue present.

In my experience, those who are vaxxed will be the first to tell you.
Those who are not don't care to discuss it.
I've witnessed this weird automatic need from those who double shot up with virtue juice to want to seemingly yell it from the rooftops.
I call it the first side affect.
In all honest I don't trust anyone, vaxxed or not. But in my opinion whatever anyone chose to do for their own health or peace of mind is none of my business, Covid or otherwise.
So don't ask me no questions
And I won't tell you no lies
So don't ask me about my business
And I won't tell you good-bye
I said don't ask no stupid questions
And I won't send you away
If you want to talk fishin'
I guess that would be okay (whoo)

How honest do we believe everyone is regarding their vaccines? It’s not exactly legal to double check right? Do I have to carry some badge or have a smart phone app to prove I’ve been vaccinated? Why should I trust that you’ve been vaccinated?
Why should I be honest with those I don’t even trust?

Why would those who have been vaccinated, have any reason to say they are unvaccinated?
Last year, a California restaurant became (in)famous for adopting an anti-mask policy where the eating joint asked its customers to pay extra if they want to wear masks indoors.
Now, the same restaurant has adopted an anti-vaccine policy and has decided to serve only the unvaccinated people.
Saying it is not going to promote American stupidity, Basilico's Paste e Vino, a neighborhood Italian restaurant in Huntington Beach, said, "We have zero tolerance for treasonous, anti-American stupidity."

So what is the difference between an employer requesting, or even requiring, an employee's (or potential employee) vaccine status, and an employer requesting or requiring a drug test?
From the individual's standpoint, both could be considered "an invasion of personal medical privacy" (since substance abuse is considered a medical issue nowadays).
From the employer's standpoint, the risk of having someone on staff who, due to their unrevealed "medical condition/status", potentially endangers the employer's entire workforce, constitutes a serious legal and financial risk.
Are we now, because some people are suspicious of the government's motives, saying that a business owner cannot be allowed to protect his/her investment by acting to protect, as best as they see fit, their employees?
