Do you also give the individual liberty speech about having to wear a seat belt?  How about kids having to get the measles vaccine before being admitted to public schools?  What a bunch of wimps.  Just get the shot and set down.  Oh, and take off your tin foil hats while indoors.  It's disrespectful.

Josh Davis  Spare us all your antivax propaganda.  You won't find a legitimate scientific journal or credible medical source to support this nonsense.  Prove me wrong.

Heck you don't even have to take that deep of a dive. A simple wiki search would yield that "Vaccination resulted in an 80% decrease in deaths from measles between 2000 and 2017, with about 85% of children worldwide having received their first dose as of 2017.

It is plain criminal to force healthy young folks, with extremely low risk of developing serious covid-related disease, to get vaccine shots. This is complete disregard of science, common sense and individual liberty.

They should be testing for antibodies.  If you have had the virus, the resulting antibodies render the vaccines irrelevant and a waste, at the very least.  Eventually nearly everyone will have had some variant of the virus as it evolves into another common cold virus.  Vaccines slow down the evolution of the virus, and drag out the pandemic.

Perhaps, but we can't have out of control pandemic either, over filling hospital ICU's either. But booster isn't needed to defend against that, just the initial vaccine.

Mike Wellons what? If they have antibodies they dont need the vaccine. Booster is nothing thats needed since new strains is going to effect everyone. This push vaccine and not testing for antibodies is fishy.

Me comment  That would be uprise of the test to see whether antibodies are in making vaccination unneeded. As of now, antibodies are just disregarded, everyone is forced to get vaccine, no matter what. Pure bureaucratic, authoritarian disregard of science.

Me comment this is literally misinformation…. Conclusions This study demonstrated that natural immunity confers longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization caused by the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the BNT162b2 two-dose vaccine-induced immunity. Individuals who were both previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 and given a single dose of the vaccine gained additional protection against the Delta variant. Thats straight from a study done this year lol. God people
