VACCINE: Won’t be bullied

| May 28, 2021 1:00 AM

I want to address the issue of COVID vaccines. First it is not a traditional vaccine, it does not prevent COVID. It is to prevent serious illness and hospitalization if you do get COVID. That is the reason you are still supposed to wear a mask.

Also, it has not received final approval from the FDA. It was supposed to be given to the most vulnerable, not the entire population.

The reason it takes years for approval of drugs is all of the clinical tests that need to be done to show that it is safe. When you get any drug, whether prescription or over the counter, you get all of the fine print telling you what the drug is supposed to do and has warnings for all of the side effects. We do not know the long-term effects.

We are being bullied and shamed into taking this drug. The government is trying to force you to take an experimental drug by saying you will not be allowed to travel and in some cases even go shopping. And the government has told these drug companies that they will not be held responsible for anything that happens.

We need to be given the choice of taking experimental drugs, not bullied by the government. Everyone who has been given this shot is part of a clinical drug trial and it appears that the drug company is not tracking the data.

Ask your politicians why!
