Arkansas GOP governor who is holding town halls to urge vaccinations said people he meets have called the shot a 'bioweapon' and talked about 'mind control'
  • Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson is combatting misinformation and "myths" about the COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Hutchinson is traveling around the state to encourage residents to get vaccinated.
  • Arkansas has one of the lowest vaccinations rates and is also seeing a spike in COVID-19 cases.

It's interesting that 2 days ago this was the sudden shift for many that had hemmed and hawed now promoting vaccination

Its the logical conclusion of the disaster that's been created by official messaging. Rational questions were met with disdain and ridicule which drives those moderate people off to mind control land as that's the only place who takes them seriously. Now there's a dire situation. It's very similar with what happened with voter fraud in the 2020 election.

It’s official, 30% of the overall population is retarded.

.. But in all seriousness, does America lead the world in conspiratards?

Even the old guy with dementia knows the rest of the world is pointing and laughing.

I don't think Canada's dual dosages will get much beyond 70% either.

Healthcare workers with patient contacts are in unique positions. I Don't have a real problem with vaccine requirements in healthcare. Although even the data is strong, if we want to require vaccines they should finish the FDA approval process. At that point I would have zero hesitancy about the requirement.

I can't say the same for state employees.

Gonna be interesting to see who stands their ground. I’m only one of two vaccinated out of 15 maintenance workers. Multiple directors making great money that said they’d never get it.

It's not a mandate. Supposedly if you say no the the shot then you will be required to have a CV19 test every 2 weeks. Curious as to how much OT $$$ the state will pay out for employees to go get tested every 2 weeks.

That is some serious bullshit.
If healthcare worker and his/her patient/client want to do business then the state should stay the F out it and keep collecting the taxes.

Agreed. I know the Feds can't mandate it but the laws are much looser on states & municipalities. Newsome never gave up his "expanded emergency powers" either so he's pushing the envelope before the recall vote.

I'm a skeptical person by nature & love my liberties. When simple questions were responded to with scorn & no actual answers but a major push came to further a cause it made me more skeptical. When I know & work with people that are otherwise healthy but have had serious enough side effects from the vaccine to be hospitalized it raised more questions. When two of the people are in the healthcare industry but local agencies were reporting zero healthcare workers had side effects from the vaccine, I stopped & decided that I'm a decently health guy that works out & doesn't get sick so I think I'll hold off until things are vetted properly.

lol at being up in arms about mandatory vaccinations to work in healthcare.
You already have to be vaccinated for measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, polio, meningitis and haemophilus influenzae b just to participate in the professional training that allows you to try to work in the field. You have to have a flu shot to be in any inpatient or living facility. You have to regularly undergo tuberculosis screening in all of the above.

This is just another one for a highly communicable disease that kills patients and costs money. Its reasonable to expect healthcare to use the tools available to actually not get patients sick with communicable diseases they don't already have.

I just had to get the MMR vaccine again, now a 3rd time overall, just to be able to go work at a children's hospital for one day.

I'll have to get the flu shot soon and tb testing done in September.


Ees normal.

I don't work in healthcare, as many here probably know. My question is why is it ok to mandate a vaccine that hasn't undergone the full range of testing? From my understanding, doesn't it usually take somewhere in the 5-7yr range to vet side effects? I'm not against emergency approvals, especially for those with increased risks. And I'm also far from an anti-vaxer. Shouldn't something be completely vetted & FDA approved before any mandates are pushed(at least in the US)?

My relief will be walking in shortly so if I can't continue in a few min I apologize in advance.

Protip: If you only had childhood MMR and are now and adult, just get another one. Never spend the money on titers. The shot is cheaper than the titers and guarantees a booster anyways.
