In a country that has a long anti-vaccination history, health workers said many in line were more afraid of the restrictions - some started Aug. 1 while others kick in on Aug. 30 - than the health threat of COVID-19. That perception was supported by people queuing who spoke to Reuters. "I'm personally not scared of corona," said banker Abdul Rauf as he stood in a queue at a vaccination centre in southern Karachi, with his mask down to chin. "Our salaries will be stopped, our SIMs will be blocked, so all these things are out there, so that's why I got my second dose done." i cant see how the powers that be can justify this even if the companies concerned ,ie Apple ,Samsung and Google are complicit .You might be able to make up a reason for banning the unvaxxed from shops ,venues ect ,on the grounds of "public safety " but how is denying them access to a phone or social media account going to make anyone else "safer ?
