Toronto gym bans vaccinated people from being members

One of the founders of a gym located in South Etobicoke has made it very clear that he's not looking for business from anyone who's chosen to heed public health advice and get the life-saving COVID-19 vaccine. 

Co-founder of Fearless Boxing Club Mohammed Abedeen posted a statement on Instagram and Facebook this week indicating that the gym's boxing club will not be accepting any vaccinated members.

"For The Safety Of Our Members, The Fearless Boxing Club Will No Longer Be Accepting Those Who Received The Experimental Covid Vaccine," he wrote.

"Our Current Members Including Doctors, Nurses, Teachers, Parents And Many Youth Feel Safer Waiting Until More Research Is Done On The Side Effects Being Discovered Right Now."

"BUILT in the lockdown, OPENED in the lockdown & WE'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE!!!" reads The Fearless Boxing Club's Instagram bio

Business owners across the country have been advocating for their right to refuse customers who are unvaccinated, especially if case rates increase, but few have taken the opposing stance and vowed to refuse those with immunity to the deadly virus.

The gym is owner is however one of many Ontarians spreading false and misleading information about the vaccine, which is proven to be safe and effective at preventing severe illness and death from COVID-19.
