For the last several months, states, businesses, and even the federal government have offered outrageous incentives to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Some offered free gifts while others offered people the chance to become a millionaire. And again, all they had to do was get vaccinated. But even with all the incentives, less than 50 percent of Americans have received both shots. Now, it appears some businesses are taking a stand against people who are cautious about the vaccine by refusing to serve them. 


Making the news, the Atlanta-based, Argosy Restaurant and Bar, posted a sign outside their business advising customers that unless they are vaccinated, they will not receive any service. The sign reads, “For the safety of our staff, guests, and community…No Vax, No Service.” 

Although the restaurant has served unvaccinated people in the past, recently, three employees and co-owner Armando Celentano tested positive for COVID-19. What is even more interesting is the fact that all four of them were reportedly vaccinated, but still tested positive. Claiming they are part of the “breakthrough cases”, Celentano believes it wasn’t the vaccine but unvaccinated people who exposed them. “We think we were exposed at different times to unvaccinated people.”

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, employees will not check for proof of vaccination due to being short-staffed. Instead, they will only ask if a customer is carrying some sort of proof that they have received their vaccine. This could include the original or digital copy. Patrons must also be willing to show proof if requested. It should also be noted that vaccinations are required for both indoor and outdoor seating.

While new, Celentano said, “If it becomes obvious that we have to start taking vaccination cards at the door, we will. We want people to have fun and walk around but not spread this thing to people and staff. … This is not, hopefully, a long-term policy. Hopefully, it is enough to get us through until we can develop herd immunity.”
