If a person had their innoculation then they are protected, right? So, what concern is it if anyone around them has also had it? By definition a vaccine is suspension of weakened, killed, or fragmented microorganisms or toxins or of antibodies or lymphocytes that is administered primarily to prevent disease. In the case of C19 this process has been complete through a synthesized virus vs. actual. Since the current innoculation does not prevent C19 by developing immunity, it merely helps the body to fight the infection, it is not a vaccine. In other words, even after innoculation a person can still be infected, can still be infectious, but their body "should" be more or capable of fending off the attack. All things considered this "vaccine" only benefits the recipient should they become infected. Thus, the inoculation status of the people around said person is irrelevant. The only people who should be concerned are those who have not been inoculated.

NMMS2 - Your definition of “vaccine” may be too narrowly drawn. Most definitions don’t look at “vaccine” via its composition or mechanics but rather what it prompts the immune system to do. Below are some examples. CDC - “A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease.” 26 US Code 4132 (legal definition used in courts) - “Any substance designed to be administered to a human being for the prevention of 1 or more diseases.” World Health Organization - “Vaccines train your immune system to create antibodies, just as it does when it’s exposed to a disease.” FDA - “[Some] vaccines contain weakened versions of a bacteria or virus, other vaccines contain only part of the bacteria or virus. Some vaccines contain only the genetic material for a specific protein and direct the body to produce a small amount of that protein. The body’s immune system reacts defensively once it detects this protein.” Oxford Languages - “a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease.” Plus the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a traditional vector vaccine, so it fits the narrowly drawn definition, too.

IES 3 I think you need to really check facts before you post them… here is what I found from CDC Vaers, https://wonder.cdc.gov/vaers.html which makes me think more about the validity of what you are saying. (Not arguing, just finding facts) VAERS accepts reports of adverse events and reactions that occur following vaccination. Healthcare providers, vaccine manufacturers, and the public can submit reports to VAERS. While very important in monitoring vaccine safety, VAERS reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness. The reports may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable. Most reports to VAERS are voluntary, which means they are subject to biases. This creates specific limitations on how the data can be used scientifically. Data from VAERS reports should always be interpreted with these limitations in mind. The strengths of VAERS are that it is national in scope and can quickly provide an early warning of a safety problem with a vaccine. As part of CDC and FDA's multi-system approach to post-licensure vaccine safety monitoring, VAERS is designed to rapidly detect unusual or unexpected patterns of adverse events, also known as "safety signals." If a safety signal is found in VAERS, further studies can be done in safety systems such as the CDC's Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) or the Clinical Immunization Safety Assessment (CISA) project. These systems do not have the same limitations as VAERS, and can better assess health risks and possible connections between adverse events and a vaccine. Key considerations and limitations of VAERS data: Vaccine providers are encouraged to report any clinically significant health problem following vaccination to VAERS, whether or not they believe the vaccine was the cause. Reports may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information. The number of reports alone cannot be interpreted or used to reach conclusions about the existence, severity, frequency, or rates of problems associated with vaccines. VAERS data are limited to vaccine adverse event reports received between 1990 and the most recent date for which data are available. VAERS data do not represent all known safety information for a vaccine and should be interpreted in the context of other scientific information. VAERS data available to the public include only the initial report data to VAERS. Updated data which contains data from medical records and corrections reported during follow up are used by the government for analysis. However, for numerous reasons including data consistency, these amended data are not available to the

I absolutely am vaccinated, it is so important to protect both ourselves and others. I have two little ones at home that are too young to be vaccinated, and I would hate to bring something nasty home to them. I am a high school science teacher, so my students all have had the opportunity to be vaccinated, and I live in a county that has a pretty good vaccination rate.

Okay...I have been vaccinated. My sister, who is an ER doctor in a midwest city is sick and tired of lay-people determining that they can decipher and explain the complexities and nuances of Covid and the vaccines available. MOST of my students have been vaccinated because they have parents who understand the imperative of doing so. Those parents who are not letting their young adult children be vaccinated thus put other students at risk. I am sick and tired of the anti-vax misinformation rhetoric running rampant social media, etc. Our district has provided NO directives regarding Covid and teaching (as well as the Delta variant)--with only 2 weeks to go..yes, our district also decided to cut our summer break (much needed for students and teachers after a year of hell) due to "loss of learning." I, for one, would like some freaking information on what we are supposed to do....I hope that parents and guardians use common sense and TALK TO THEIR DOCTORS about the vaccine; then, GET the freakin' vaccine and save their lives and the lives of others.

So if you want people to talk to their doctors, then why are you upset when the answer is to wait. A lot of people are talking to their doctors and they are telling us not to get them. You can't criticize people for listening to medical advice when that's what you're asking them to do.

Georgia High School, I'm so grateful for you. ❤ Thank you for your intuition and empathy. You are a person of conscious ethics, an ideal leader for impressionable young minds, and I pray that strong health carries you through many, many more years. No doubt, this is a deeply unsettling circumstance that has led to intense polarization. I don't blame anyone except corrupt corporations, global elitists, and their subjective media, for creating such a climate of fear. However, it is not domestic terrorism to explore both sides of the coin, here. I don't believe in this agenda. That doesn't mean that I refuse to take precautions for others around me. It means I am not sold on the current vaccine solution just because MSM and CNN are telling me to do it- the same entities who have discredited peer reviewed, citable resources that don't comply with their narrative. This is a complicated society, a complicated world. There should be more than one angle, more than one lens through which to view it, because human rights are being challenged here. And those rights do not end where fear begins.

Yes. The vast majority of teachers in our district are. Many of our students got fully vaccinated in the Spring. Our County has done a fantastic job providing mass-clinics available to our faculties and students. I don't know what percentage of kids in our district will have it, but it will be higher than most, I would bet. Hopefully they keep offering it with school/athletic physicals to give the opportunity to as many kids as possible.

I am not, nor is my family. We all (my parents, my siblings, my sister-in-law and brother-in-law, my spouse, my children) were sick with COVID last year. Thankfully, none of us were hospitalzed, although it took a couple of us a few months to actually feel much better. I have discovered several recent studies from various universities that are finding that those who had symptomatic COVID have the same antibody levels and higher immunity than those who get the vaccine. Yes, students in our schools will have the opportunity to be vaccinated before school starts, although I do not know what the current age limits are. A lot of the senior citizens at our church were very grateful to be able to get the vaccine because they are far more comfortable getting together with their families, so I am very happy for them.

If even the people here, who can generally be assumed to be educated, are voicing the "I'll wait until full approval," "I don't need it because I had COVID," "It's a hoax" garbage, it's probably safe to say we won't see enough vaccinations to keep people safe. If the GOP had this anti-science propaganda machine running in the fifties, we'd still be dealing with polio wards full of iron lungs.

The development process for the mRNA vaccines has been going for close to 20 years, with the Covid-19-specific protein being the only last-minute refinement. Acknowledging that vaccine refusal is largely politics- and propaganda-driven is not itself a political statement, just a realistic one.

Fully vaccinated. We had a professional development day where vaccines came to us. The timing didn’t quite work for the second shot, but our district arranged for support staff to cover classes while people went to clinics or hospitals for the follow up. Several of my students were waiting for their second shot toward the end of school, but I don’t know what the overall vaccination rate will be.

Yes! I am vaccinated and am a huge fan of doing everything possible to protect ourselves and others from this virus by getting vaccinated and wearing a mask if you are not (and for those under 12). I hope my students are vaccinated as well! While I appreciate an individuals right to not get vaccinated, I think a 95% chance of protecting from death and serious illness is hard to ignore. I personally think we have enough data on this now and the benefits far outweigh the risks.

I am not, nor are my kids. I am waiting until it is fully approved. There seems to be increasing evidence that it is not nearly as effective as they have led us to believe. I have also had the virus already and have a blood clotting condition. I respect those who have chosen to get it and I can only hope to have that same respect in return.

Good philosophy of respecting other’s health decisions. The only problem with that is while getting the vaccination reduces community spread and has, as far as I can tell, no negative impact on the community, failure to do so has an adverse affect on the safety of those around you and gives the virus a chance to mutate. This may be why you are met with negative reactions for your decision.

I had covid in January and was fully vaccinated in February and March. My daughter and 2 daughter-in-laws are nurses. They were required to be vaccinated. I feel if being vaccinated was something that they felt passionate about then it is something I need to be passionate about too. The safety and welfare of others should be everyone’s priority.

I respect the right for people to get to choose for themselves whether to get the vaccine. PLEASE research if you are considering.

I have a 99% recovery rate for Covid- I will not get the vaccine.

I respect the freedom to choose on getting vaccinated or not, but we have to think about how invisible this virus is. Some people have no symptoms like the flu has. And that's why we have to try whatever we can and trust the scientists. My doctor is a scientist. All doctors are. Why do we trust them when they prescribe a medication to us? The asymptomatic factor is what we need to watch out for. My aunt died in January from covid. My cousin apparently got it when she went out. She was the one who cared for her since she was ill with severe diabetes. She was asymptomatic but passed it on to my aunt. 😔

Based on the over all numbers of people who have caught Covid these past weeks, these are people who have not gotten the shot.
