I think this is the kind of thing that should be discussed with a doctor first and foremost. Both my husband and I are not getting the vaccine. Neither of us have ever had a flu shot and do not want them. I was actually advice against the COVID-19 one because of allergies by my doctor. Other vaccinations are different. I have had those as well as my husband. Unless you are at high risk, you do not need to get flu vaccinations, period. That is what I have been told by several different doctors. I know the COVID-19 one is different but considering it doesn't stop the spread, I don't understand why people are going at each other's throats over it. It is meant to prevent high-risk individuals from dying due to complications brought on by the virus. Those with diabetes, those who are obese, those with asthma and other lung issues, and people over the age of 70 are all considered high risk.
To answer your question, be it dating or friendship, I wouldn't cut someone out of my life for not wanting to be vaccinated. I have several people in my family and social circle who are vaccinated and several who are not and no one fighting over it.

It depends on whether or not they have a good reason for not getting vaccinated. If it's medically advised and they have a condition where they can't take the vaccine yet, then that's alright. However, if they are just anti-vaccine and pseudoscience enthusiasts, then I'd rather not be around them.

I would continue dating someone who doesn't want to get vaccinated. But, you may have to consider that if you don't get vaccinated, you might not be able to see family members, such as children in the family. So keep that in mind. I personally think it's your choice to get it or not, but I think people then have the right to deny you access to see family and friends because you're not vaccinated.

Depends on your location. I hear its becoming a mandatory requirement in more developed countries.
Where I'm at, in Nigeria, we really don't talk about vaccines or COVID for that matter.
Still, in these developed countries, there is some resistance against taking a vaccine that is somewhat controversial.
At the end of the day, cutting someone of for their.own personal choice is quite selfish. It's best to discuss this with that individual before making a drastic choice.
