Original Article

State Health Commissioner Dr. Norman Oliver told 8News on Friday that he plans to mandate coronavirus vaccinations for Virginians once one is made available to the public. Virginia state law gives the Commissioner of Health the authority to mandate immediate immunizations during a public health crisis if a vaccine is available. Health officials say an immunization could be released as early as 2021. Dr. Oliver says that, as long as he is still the Health Commissioner, he intends to mandate the coronavirus vaccine. (snip) Under state law, only people with a medical exemption could refuse the mandate.


I predict an uproar.

I haven't looked it up but dollars for donuts this guys a Dem. Well considering many folks of both parties have absolutely no intention of taking the vaccine for any number of reasons, this could get pretty interesting. Masks are one thing but bodily integrity, invasive medical treatment, oh I can see the lawyers salivating now. I won't rule out eventually taking a Covid vaccine but I will make my own choice, not the government and my choice will be based on medical advice from my doctor, not politics, not fear, or not tinfoil hat conspiracies.

Excellent plan. Let Virginia be the guinea pig to 1) See if the vaccine is safe, and 2) See what happens when they try to get the mountain folk to comply.

I am not anti-vaccine. I get a flu shot every year, and got the shingles vaccine a couple of years ago. But there isn't a bat's chance in Hades that I will take the Covid vaccine when it is first released. Other people can be the guinea pigs for that. Maybe a couple of years from now., but definitely not this year under any circumstances. And if they try to force it on us, I may very well first the first shots of Civil War 2!!!!!!

Marxists of the world, you go first. The Gates-Fauci plan was all along to get a vaccine against AIDS. The China woman propagated bat SARS viruses in human cell culture until the spike protein fit in the exact same site of the receptor ACE2. Perfect antigen to present the AIDS binding site. The Moderna vaccine which is Of a type made of messenger RNA has never ever been used in any humanor any disease whatsoever. Undesired effects might appear years later (Lupus, multiple sclerosis, muscle autoimmunity, Guillain-Barré).

Given the death rate already during the testing for the Gates vaccine, I predict a lot of people are not going to want to take that poison. The ones I feel sorry for are in the medical profession. For the tyrants will make sure they have to take it even if they do not want to do so in order to keep their licenses.

They can easily enforce such a mandate, it only takes the will to do so. They'll create a computer cross-check, a simple overnight data process by all credit card issuers, all banks, such that your electronic banking activity will be suspended without a digital certificate of vaccination. You get vaccinated, the system gives you a green checkmark, your credit and ATM cards keep working. No vaccine? You'll be left with only the cash already in your hands. It's actually very, very simple.

#11, I lived in Loudoun County for 24 years and my daughter and her family still live there. I got out in January 2018 and am thankful that I now live in a red state. We had a small horse farm too but sold it when the last 2 horses had to be put down. As far as forcing the vaccine - that is an invasion of privacy and is what the SCOTUS based their Roe v Wade decision on, even though there is nothing mentioned about a right to privacy in the Constitution. #2 is correct. If My Body My Choice works for abortion, it also works for vaccines. Never ever submit!

We will soon see Virginia license plates all over the Interstates as numerous as New York and New Jersey plates are now. Most democrats used to stay put and live with their stupid choices, even embrace them, but this past year has put people over their limits of tolerance. Through incredibly stupid and dictatorial democrats, we now have a current example of how easily Hitler was able to create Nazi Germany. Never forget that it was first enabled by gun confiscation, which Northram has already tried once.

"The first African Americans sent into the English colonies came to Point Comfort, Virginia, in 1619. They were slaves. They had been captured against their will. But they landed in colonies that didn't have slavery. There were no laws about slavery in the colonies at that time. The United States didn't inherit slavery from anybody. We created it," Kaine said.

In a 4-3 decision, the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down the state's stay at home order, handing a defeat to Democratic Gov. Tony Evers in his administration's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the governor's stay-at-home order suspended, Gov. Tony Evers and legislative Republicans will need to work quickly to come up with a replacement plan, otherwise it may be up to individual counties to implement a patchwork of their own COVID-19 regulations. In its order, the Supreme Court said Evers' stay at home order is "invalid, and therefore, unenforceable," so businesses and restaurants presumably may open immediately.

"Research obtained by a group of scientists shows the COVID vaccine spike protein can travel from the injection site and accumulate in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands and in 'quite high concentrations' in the ovaries." This is what Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology warned about. The spike proteins are not staying at the injection site and they are dangerous. Protein in the blood can be very dangerous. A Canadian cancer vaccine researcher said last week, “We made a big mistake. We didn’t realize it until now,” said Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario.
