  1. I am in total agreement on the mandatory vaccine. However, I just cannot fathom why should the government allow the hospital workers to get away with this one. We are allowing our medical staff to endanger people’s lives. Throughout the world the first set of workers that were confronted with mandatory vaccines were the health care workers. Pm bite the bullet they are walking around like unvaccinated Peacocks and peahens.

  2. So what are the comments going to say? He didn’t take the vaccine??? Because he just took the vaccine a few days ago…n Tek in…so wa ppl go mek up n say now…wa…plz tell me

    • What they all ways say nothing go so they r slot more vaccinated people at the hospital on ventilators they need to create fear so they can get across the vaccines to us they realize that they can’t reach herd immunity through us so they turn to our kids now u heard nothing about kids get sick as they before the vaccines for kids reach here
