Who is taking the COVID-19 Shot? Do you think all teachers should?

No, thank you. Too many issues can result from some of the ingredients. Besides, I haven't taken a flu shot for almost 50 years & I have never had the flu.

MHS 1...It does protect you from getting Covid @ a 95% efficacy...but that 5% should keep you from getting one? No...right from cdc’s website

Effectiveness
What We Know

COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19.
After you are fully vaccinated, you may be able to start doing some things you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
Studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine will also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19.

COVID-19 vaccination is an important tool to help us get back to normal. Learn more about the benefits of getting vaccinated.

Find a COVID-19 vaccine if you are among those currently recommended to get vaccinated.
COVID-19 vaccines teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. It typically takes two weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19. That means it is possible a person could still get COVID-19 before or just after vaccination and then get sick because the vaccine did not have enough time to provide protection. People are considered fully protected two weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, or two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

You should keep using all the tools available to protect yourself and others until you are fully vaccinated. After you are fully vaccinated, you may be able to start doing some things you had stopped doing because of the pandemic. Learn more about what you can do when you have been fully vaccinated.

Yes! And anyone who hesitates should answer for him/herself this question: Would you still decline the vaccine if it meant that, if you contracted a life-threatening case of COVID, you would be placed at the back of the line of people needing medical treatment, behind all the people who’d gotten vaccinated? Because that is what would be fair.

No. People are not addicted to vaccines.

I will not be taking the vaccine. I have a litany of reasons for this decision, all of which are well informed. I understand how others feel about it and I respect their positions. I just wish I will be offered that same respect, but I am doubtful. Considering one of the reasons pertains to my personal risk for adverse reactions to mRNA vaccines, it is deeply hurtful to think that other educators would wish for my being removed from the profession I work so hard for and from the students who I love so so much. I am a healthy and in shape professional who is not worried about getting Covid-19. I am being proactive in building up my immune system and I abide by all of our district's policies in regards to the pandemic. Forcing me to inject something into my body that has a substantial chance of effecting me negatively--and to what degree is unknowable--is authoritarian and not an appropriate approach. Forcing an educator to choose between the profession they love and is immeasurably effective at and an injection of a substance that can damage them permanently is not right. Anyone who wants to take it, more power to you. But I will not be taking it and I will fight to keep my job tooth and nail. I believe the state of Arkansas is reasonable and will not force educators to choose between their profession and possible bodily harm.

The vaccine is not just for you. As a teacher you will come in contact with many teens. They gave NO fear of getting Covid because they are young. It is the people you might give it to who then might die because they are not as fit ,young and healthy as you. If you have terrible adverse affects from the vaccine, then I understand, but more than 1/2 a million people have died already. Thanks to the people who have already gotten vaccinated so others might not get it like you.

I will absolutely NOT be getting this unsafe poison. Vaccines are questionable in the first place and then to have one that was so quickly made for a virus they don't even fully understand. This vaccine can alter your RNA and DNA. What kind of robots are they making? People this should NOT be mandated! If you want to get it then get it but you should NOT force people to put things into their bodies that they don't want! That would be like me telling you that you had to smoke or kill the baby inside of you. It should be a choice! We live in AMERICA!

I feel the same way and feel like I’m being ridiculed and outcasted for my choice. Let alone free choice in America, but then we also talk about bullying and equity in the schools. How is this any different?!

I’m not gonna lie I’m a little apprehensive about it I’m not saying I won’t but I need to see how it all works and it’s impacts first. Not rushing the process at all.

You have a MUCH higher chance of dying from COVID than from the vaccine.
That being said, if you have a history of allergic reactions to vaccines, you should probably avoid this one.

All great comments, but if I was the Superintendent, I would make it mandatory, much like you need a license to drive, or a teaching credential, or the fact that in California you need to pass a TB test. Well if you’re not going to take the shot you need to test everyday at your expense to protect others. I think if the almost 400,000 people who have died had a say they would say...

You know how it is, without coercion through laws people won’t do the right thing. As we all can see with people putting ME first. But, what can you expect when national, state, and local officials offer no truth or real leadership.

If you don’t get the vaccine you don’t belong in public.

How is it ethical to mandate an EXPERIMENTAL gene therapy that has never been used previously? More so, what are the ethics of mandating it when for most populations, especially young children, the risks of the jab outweighs any potential benefits? Never mind that it doesn’t seem to do any of the things initially claimed—doesn’t stop contracting or spreading….

I am as soon as it’s available. I do understand that there will be many who won’t and I respect their right to choose.

Regardless, your sources ,they still,by definition label the reader, whether they searched for them or not as purveyors of second hand information.
We like to think of ourselves as so much better read due to modern technology , radio, television and the internet . What we fail to realize is how much more susceptible we are to buying into the beliefs of the groups running these outlets.
I didn’t say I was immune to this by product of technology. (If you’ll excuse the pun) I am, however, aware of it.

I think I will wait. My boyfriend got the vaccine last month and had terrible side effects. I just had covid in November and I have not recovered yet. My heart isn’t strong enough to do day to day things, let alone fight side effects from a vaccine. Jealous of those who are getting it!!

I find it curious that for all our history as a society doing things for the public good, much of those being decisions made before we were born, the idea of taking a vaccine is even a discussion point. As kids, unless parents were home schooling or paying for private school, we Had to go to public school. This is mandated because it’s in the interest of public good, at minimum to keep kids busy and out of trouble, and otherwise to educate them and give them the tools to meet their goals. We Have to pull over and get out of the way of police, fire trucks, ambulances because it is for the public good. Other people decided that traffic lights had to be put in place to regulate traffic; we overwhelmingly follow the law and stop at the red lights because it’s in the public good and we benefit as well. Even when they put stop signs in our neighborhoods, we overwhelmingly obey the signs, whether or not we agree with the placement, whether or not we know someone who was injured or killed at that intersection. And even at night when no one is around to see us and no one is in the crosswalk.

How many of you “it’s my choice” folks routinely choose to blow through the red lights and stop signs, choose to stay in the way of emergency vehicles, choose to keep your kids out of any educational opportunity (home schooling can be inconvenient to parents, after all)?! And as concerns the kids in our lives, both our own and other people’s, what do your actions teach them?
