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

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?

Do you feel the same way about the Flu shot?

ALHS 1 Excuse me? What are you implying that I am not so innocent? I did read the post and No sources were sited. Ok so it may not be the only way to live. Some people are more risk takers, meaning they will take their chances by not getting the vaccine because they don’t trust it. However, those who choose not to be vaccinated are capable of putting others at risk. What ever happened to the good for humanity.? Instead of focusing on debating with me about it, many other people feel the same way I do. Life is a risk, and we cannot protect ourselves from all of them.... but you don’t think it’s wise to protect yourself, your students, and anyone you come in contact with? Would you rather where a mask forever? For as free as this country is , we have laws and they are for the good of all., not individuals. At one time we didn’t have to wear seatbelts... driving is a risk. Now it’s a law and many lives have been saved. What I’ve been trying to understand is the WHY NOT... I’m not referring to those who can’t ( because I too may not be able to make the antibodies) but I’m going to try because I want to hug my parents, and let the littles hug me if they need to. Are you able to give me a sound reason as to why not if there is no medical issues that prevent you from getting it or is it just about you? What you as the individual wants? (Discussion... we may just disagree, without the name calling and implications) thanks .

I plan on it and think risk of minimal side effects worth it- I believe it should be a personal choice!

Side effects differ from chills, and fever, headache and body aches. Most people have the headache and body aches. I didn't get chills or fever, but laid in bed all the next day. Made me extremely tired.

I will. Not sure about requiring all teachers, but I believe most should consider it.

Me!! Impatiently waiting. Live in Alabama, teach in Georgia. Want things back to normal for my family and students! I want to hug my seniors at 👨‍🎓 graduation! I get my Flu shot every year and have never had the flu. I know the vaccines don’t guarantee not getting it, but it should as a minimum reduce the severity of it.

like

100% getting it. I personally would support it being required. I would, however, also support it being optional as long as anyone who refuses the vaccine and then contracts covid is at the end of the line for care. Since, you know, people in cardiac arrest are currently just being given automatic DNRs as hospitals break down entirely.

This is for Illinois Middle School 4 Yes, I so agree with you. I have been healthy my whole life, I am not about to mess it up now with some untested vaccine because of other people's fears!

I will most definitely, when it’s my turn! I think everyone should but we can’t obligate them.

Every teacher should get it and it shouldn’t even be a debate.

There is a point where even an adult gets tired of people spouting obvious misinformation and snaps. Especially when the majority offer no legitimate sources when asked. Debate is about countering with arguments, and in the case of scientific matters, actual data and evidence, not opinion. Many people in the social media say things just to stir the pot, and too many believe it without evidence or doing their own research. It takes the patience of a Mother Teresa to not verbally b——ch slap another spouter of misinformation. When it comes to my health, safety and the safety of everyone I care about, dang skippy, I’m not gonna take some stranger’s negative or uninformed posts as the gospel. I even care about you, CES 1, even though you can’t impact my personal well-being. As a biology teacher and experienced with chemistry, it bothers me when people don’t do the research and hence walk into a debate without the ammo to hold their own. It makes them look like a child trying to play basketball not having the training who then pitches a fit because the basketball team laughs at them. In an ideal world, someone on the team would help them learn the game, but for goodness sakes, Covid is not a game! Come to the court equipped with the tools to participate in debate or step out of it!

Sure, your body, your choice - just as long as you are aware that Your Body, without Your Choice may pass on the virus to others such as your family members, friends, community members, your students, their parents, people in other states or countries if you go traveling. Or, Your Body, without Your Choice may receive the virus from any of these folks.

I will get the vaccine as soon as I am offered it. I do not want to go back to in person teaching without it! I am on two waiting lists already. The thing I fear is that it will not be as effective with the new strain of the virus.
