The Vaccine Should Not Be Mandated
September 10, 2021 8:48pm CST
If you have been following the USA News, President Biden spoke today about how businesses and companies that hire over a hundred employees , he encourages get the Covid Vaccination. That sent Social Media into an uproar about how people should not be told by the government that they must take the jab or be fired or punished. I honestly think people should make their own choice if they want to take the Vaccine. I took the first Vaccine and tomorrow I am scheduled for my second Phizer Vaccine. Say a prayer that I don't have any bad affects with my second Pfizer Vaccine tomorrow. It is our choice. I choose to get the Covid Vaccination.

I don't really understand why some people are making such a fuss. Why would you refuse something that will protect you? And we have already had so many vaccines over the course of our lives - here children are vaccinated against polio, TB, measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria. I received vaccines against hepatitis A and B at work (because I used to work with human tissues) and when I went to live in the USA they wouldn't let me in unless I was vaccinated against chicken pox (which is not routinely given here). I was glad of that when Big One was little as she caught chicken pox and I didn't get it - it's especially nasty for adults. As a result we even paid privately to get the chicken pox vaccine for Little One when she came along.

It is up to the company whether they want their insurance rates to go up because they hire people who refuse to get vaccinated and then go to the hospital or die because of their choice. I totally understand their reasoning. The school board in my city decided everyone working for the schools had to be vaccinated before the first day or school or lose their jobs. Good luck with your second jab.

@Fleura I read an article a little bit ago about some companies telling their employees that they could forego the vaccination but they'd be charged a $200 a month premium on their insurance until they did. The premium was to cover the employee and/or any other employees that caught Covid 19 from them.

@DaddyEvil That's a huge amount! How does anyone afford health insurance? Seriously, it's funny that people complain if the 'authorities' tell them to do something for their own good, but don't seem to be complaining if the insurance companies tell them to do something so as to protect their (the insurers) profits!
I think that it depends on the type of job. My 2 daughters decided to get vaccinated. But they could had skipped it (and here it is not mandatory) because they are now working online. But I would not send one of my children to school if their teacher decided not to get the vaccine. It is a risk for others.

@LeaPea2417 The military has a lot of different ones they have to take. I know vaccines wiped out polio here over time. But as people started trying to find reasons not to get kids vaccinated it could come back as other countries still have it. But that is just one of many vaccines that show they do help. Thats why the military has so many. They take them to keep from bringing stuff back to the rest of us. Wish people would think about that for this.
I hope that you do not have any bad side effects from your second shot. I think that the non-vaxxers need to be mindful of the fact that they are the ones that are keeping the virus going and spreading it to each other and even to those that are vaccinated. It is a decision to take or not to take the shot, however if you have taken the shot, you should feel more protected but with the non vaxxers not wearing masks when they should be it isn't the case. Last year people were fighting over paper towels and toiletpaper in the stores, this year they are fighting over the decision to take the shot or not to take the shot, people cannot seem to agree.

I choose not to get the vaccine especially since I believe the doctors who have come out against the vaccine that the the ones pushing are adding boosters and seeing what some of the adverse reactions to the shots. I am taking what these doctors suggest to help build your immunity system (besides there are those who have taken the shot still got it and it is said the vaccinated can infect other
