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 .

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.

FMS 1... you are being sarcastic correct? Otherwise I might think you lost it!!

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!

likefunnysmarthelpful

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?!

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’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.

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.

AHS 2 Are you being treated for that right now? I have MS and my dr does not know yet if we can even make the antibodies for it... so I will get another antibody test soon, get the 2 doses, then 2 weeks after that get another antibody test! Sssiiiggghhh ...

I have already signed up to get the vaccine. Scientists have been working for years to develop a coronavirus vaccine. The common cold is a coronavirus. The research was already out there. They just had to make it specific to Covid-19. I believe in science.

Prefacing this by saying i really know nothing about stocks.

I hired a CFP a couple years ago through a trustworthy referral (actually 2). We pay $125 a month but tbh I have no idea what for… he “handles” our equity accounts (aside from current company 401k). I really don’t see the value but maybe I’m missing something?

Anyways. If we were to “fire” him… what do I do with the money in my accounts now? Tbh, I don’t even know what the “accounts” are. Everything is done through Ameriprise.
