Unless they have a TRULY medical reason for not getting vaccinated, they should. More and more young people (teens) are being hospitalized with Covid, So yes they should be vaccinated. Other (early childhood) vaccines are required! Why not for another disease??

Vaccinations use to readily accepted until social media disinformation turned some brains to mush. COVID will probably continue due to the utter ignorance of some people.

Not for such things. For things like MMR where there is a long history and proof of saving lives and reducing child mortality then yes.

Children have a 98 % chance of surviving covid so why would you give them a vaccine with potential side effects

It should be up to each parent/student. Children are not at risk for Covid, so why inject them with a non FDA approved vaccine unnecessarily? That is not in THEIR best interest. This vaccine has not been out long enough to possibly know any long term effects.

This is almost as bad as forced abortion. I chose to get vaccinated, but believe people should be able to make their own decision.

ANYONE that require ANYONE to have vaccines need to be held responsible if something happens. There could be several law suits that come from it.

It's not about freedom of expression it's about societal responsibility, We would still have smallpox, typhoid fever, measles to mention with the attitudes some people have.

I am assuming Deschutes County has a population of a quarter million and only 74 people have died in over a year. Requiring vaccinations is putting millions into the pockets of millionaires. I am sure they are already working on the next virus.

No, it's illegal to force an experimental drug on people for any reason... and the schools that require this are asking for some major lawsuits!!

It's not experimental. The vaccine is a tweak in an already established SARS vaccine. It took weeks. The reason it took a year was for human testing for dosage, efficacy rate etc. It's not an experimental drug, it's a new one.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
