This just in on the COVID-19 front

Postby Niner Alpha » Mon Jul 26, 2021 2:55 pm

From the AP:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Department of Veterans Affairs on Monday became the first major federal agency to require health care workers to get COVID-19 vaccines, as the aggressive delta variant spreads and some communities report troubling increases in hospitalizations among unvaccinated people.

The VA’s move came on a day when nearly 60 leading medical and health care organizations issued a call for health care facilities to require their workers to get vaccinated. ......

However, "Employees will have eight weeks to get vaccinated." Isn't that just like the bureaucracy? It's like saying the brakes on the school bus are not working and we are doing the right thing and plan on having them fixed in a couple of months. In the meantime...

Remember when we went into the service? They didn't ask us our opinion about the vaccines we got. We just lined up and got them in both arms. No needles required on some of them...they literally shot them into us with an air gun. And to this day most of us have no idea how many things were were vaccinated against. We just trusted that whatever any of them did to or for us it wasn't near as bad as bullets and booby traps, mines, rockets, ringworm, crotch rot, etc.

I got the air guns in both arms in basic, and was a little lightheaded by the time I got to the end of the line.
Luckily, they let us sit down outside in the shade for a while, as we all were pretty pale....... :roll:
