Don't wait for the official OSHA rule - fire the vax deniers NOW. But that is not enough -no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark on their vaccine card with the name of the vaccine. Vax deniers must be literally starved to death. It is the only way to get back to normal life. 100% vax.

If the vax worked the vaccinated would not be afraid of the unvaccinated, but it does not work. It is not a vax, it is an untested flu shot.

It’s the right thing to do. As a human, it is our responsibility to protect others from this Virus. It’s been proven safe and effective in preventing serious disease. The longer the pandemic goes on the more virulent the virus will become. It’s up to each of us to do our part.

Vaccinated people are getting sick, still transmitting the virus to others, and still dying. Why are policy makers ignoring natural immunity? Why does the percentage for herd immunity keep changing? Follow the money. COVID pediatric cases are way down - find some other fear tactic and fast.

The vaccine is not designed to prevent you from getting the virus altogether. The data is fairly clear. Vaccinated people have less chance of getting it, less chance of getting as sick and less chance of dying. All parameters measured are statistically significant. Not a $ or political thing.

People DO have a right to take the vaccine. They DON'T have the right to jeopardize other people's health and safety. If you don't want the vaccine, find a job from home.

Yes, I'm vaccinated. And yes I got the delta strain last month. Was hospitalized. Multiple doctors said if I didn't get vaxed, I well could be dead. People, this is serious! Get vaxed for the health of everyone around you.

In a massive government over reach, the vaccine mandate actually applies to people who are employed by covered employers, who only work from home. What is next? Mandates on people with heart disease, obiesity, smokers, cancer, genetic indicators of future health issues? Resist tyrany!

The unvaxinated are a place for the virus to evolve in. It is like that the virus will mutate to become worse than it allready is. PLEASE, for the sake of the newborn, get vaccinated. Signed Grandfather.

People are worried about THEIR freedoms, not at all caring about others freedoms to a safe and healthy working environment. So their employers have to do it for them.

Everyone is already short-staffed. This mandate is stupid. These are the people that kept coming to work while everyone else sat home on their butts collecting a check.

Why are US Senators and US House Members exempt? I think they should also be fired.

99.96% survivable without the “vax”...the vaxed are still wearing masks, and have been catching more Covid than the unvaxed...this leads me to our intelligent freedom to choose...just like we can choose to vote for certain candidates or not, which we will remember who voted for or against. 100%

It's a decision that should be made between a doctor and patient, not the government.

The 43% who think others should lose their jobs, should lose THEIR jobs. They are self centered jerks.

This is something that can have life long effects on a person. A job is just that, a job. A workplace shouldn't have the ability to make life changing or altering choices for their workers. They don't get to have a say in any other medical decision for any of their workers, this is no different.

I frequently vote the opposite of how I really believe to demonstrate absurdity by being absurd. Saint Rush Limbaugh taught me that.

I'm saving that money for Utility bills and Gasoline. Thanks to Joe Brandon. I read where he had a nice Thanksgiving Dinner, while 160,000 military men and women are having trouble feeding their families. Go figure!

And those same 160,000 people would be in the same boat if Trump was in office. Wait, he thinks he is, so is his fault???

Adam, you wouldn't have the stones to say that to those military folks, not even to the ladies.
