More than half of New York City firefighters say they won’t be vaccinated for COVID-19 when the potentially life-saving shot becomes available to first responders in a matter of weeks, according to a new internal survey. About 55 percent of 2,053 smoke-eaters polled in the last three days by their union, the Uniformed Firefighters Association, answered “No” when asked, “Will you get the COVID-19 Vaccine (Snip) Many healthy firefighters in their 30s and 40s have become less fearful of the virus as they’ve overcome it themselves or know of colleagues who bounced back after a diagnosis, Ansbro said.

I remember the swine flu vaccine that was rushed to market that triggered Guillian-Barre syndrome in some people before the mass vaccination program was discontinued. I may take it, but I'll wait a while before I do. Let's see what side effects appear from the mass rollout.

Good for them. As for me, I'd like to understand if this vaccine has a "kill switch" engineered into it. I have seen claims on tv by reputable virologists who suspect that such a "kill switch" would be intended for eventual population control. Seems far-fetched. But, is it?

I can never unhear the information about the Gates (father and son) interest in population control. My grandkids probably get four times the vaccines that I got. Notice how the Gates family is very interested in vaccinating Africa? Notice anything different regarding fertility in this generation worldwide?

Follow the science. And the science says (even based on provably fraudulent statistics)...that unless you are over 70 and have multiple co-morbidities, you have absolutely no reason to fear losing your life or even serious hospitalization. Consider that when you decide whether you choose to take the vaccine. The massive hysteria and unprecedented measures taken for this virus will someday by the subject of hundreds if not thousands of studies and books on societal disorders and political Machiavellian maneuvers.

What is really interesting to me in all of this is how far trust has eroded. "I don't trust anyone" is not a good way to go through life. But we are learning now we may not like our government, but we can't change it because the electoral process has been corrupted. We can't even trust in the common sense of everyday, normal Americans anymore, because the powers that be have cut us off via election fraud. We can't trust science or a great deal of the medical community because politically connected money keeps them afloat. The universities can't be trusted to pass true wisdom onto our kids, let alone public schools. Seems there are many cases where we can't trust clergy because they've been corrupted by money and sex. Sorry to be so grim during the holiday season, but it's beginning to feel this bad......

You can see the results of how the virus reacts to professional football players, and their coaching staffs. Have not heard of any who have not quickly recovered, nearly all with mild symptoms too. It's also the case with students off at college, very mild symptoms and quick recovery. With well over 75% of all deaths being people over 65 years old, yet are only about 11% of the cases, it stands to reason that they be watched over, and given the vaccine first. It's also why overall deaths in the United States don't show a spike due to COVID.

The phrase"potentially life-saving shot" is propaganda. The dreaded virus tends to ignore younger children. The mortality rate on others is usually less than 100% unless one of over 65 ( I am 80) and has other health issues too. It is past time for the lame-stream media to consider the effects of its lies. The truth is the truth and not otherwise.

#4,#5,#20- See #16. FTA: “Head of Pfizer Research: Covid Vaccine is Female Sterilization” (Health & Money News - December 2, 2020) “The vaccine contains a spike protein (see image) called syncytin-1, vital for the formation of human placenta in women. If the vaccine works so that we form an immune response AGAINST the spike protein, we are also training the female body to attack syncytin-1, which could lead to infertility in women of an unspecified duration. (Snip) Not part of the original article but a comment. ... After a little research it turns out that Syncytin-1 is also present in sperm, so it’s not only Women that will be steralised but Men as well.”

#5- An article written by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (Chairman, Children’s Health Defense) dated April 9, 2020 entitled, “Gates’ Globalist Vaccine Agenda: A Win-Win for Pharma and Mandatory Vaccination” may be of interest. Efforts to vaccinate children and adults through Gates-funded researchers in India and countries on the African Continent resulted in a variety of adverse effects that included death, febrile convulsions, paralysis, and seizures. In Kenya, a Catholic Doctors Association accused the WHO of “chemically sterilizing millions of unwilling Kenyan women with a ‘tetanus’ vaccine campaign’ which was corroborated by independent laboratories after finding a sterility formula in every vaccine tested for which WHO finally admitted it had been developing the sterility vaccines for over a decade; similar accusations came from Tanzania, Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines.”

A COVID-19 vaccine could soon be on its way to Illinois, but don’t expect it to immediately stem the pandemic as the phased-in release is expected to take months. Gov. J.B.

The chief executive of one of the nation’s largest regional health systems is leaving his job after refusing to wear a mask in the office. Sanford Health said it “mutually agreed to part ways” with CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft after he reportedly sent an email to employees last week claiming he didn’t need to wear a face covering after recovering from the coronavirus. Krabbenhoft argued that using a mask would be a “symbolic gesture” because his bout with COVID-19 had made him immune to the virus for “at least seven months and perhaps years to come,” according to the Associated Press.
