A former waitress in Brooklyn says that her uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 vaccine cost her her job.
Bonnie Jacobson worked at the Red Hook Tavern, who she said asked her last week if she planned on getting the vaccine after it had been extended to restaurant workers.
"I was honest, I'm not going to do it quite yet," Jacobson said. "I do have my reservations about it, I need to talk to a doctor, just see how I feel. She said no problem."

I will not be eating there! The part where companies can fire you for not getting the vaccine is inaccurate. It is unprecedented and would be decided in court. Also, companies/institutions who mandate vaccines run the risk of people stop buying there products and services or donating to their cause.

No real scientific proof, only "science speak"! If you present the science your posts and comments get censored. What could be worse? Courts that are too complicit to hear the case and the results of scientific method study of this medical treatment (It's not a vaccine). By taking this vaccine (treatment) your risk of serious complications is greater than your risk of getting "covid" or of serious complications developing from "covid".

>33 Really? Bonnie Jacobcon is probably not even a real person. This whole news segment is completely staged. Its purpose is to create fear among people that doesn't want to get injected with nRNA. "If you don't take the shot you'll become homeless."

I refused the vaccine when it was offered by my employer too. Next day, they emailed me to let me know I was fired unless I received the vaccine. No heads up prior that it would be mandatory also. I lost my job a month ago... I contacted a lawyer. It's completely legal in ny state. Buckle up folks

Can employers fire people for being HIV positive or require them to be on PreP to continue employemt?
Question everything
If you want the vaccine, take it, but stop complaining about the ones that don't want it.

J and J is better than the rushed, never used en mass in humans before MRNA gene therapy "vacine". But there is no suffering. Covid is similar to a bad cold or flu. Nothing more. The deaths are not counted properly ("Covid deaths are counted as people who die with Covid, NOT from Covid"-Toronto Publiv Health). The suffering is 100% caused by the government imposing draconian illegal control measures and economic devastation on the people . We need to stand up and say no more, we demand our freedoms.

@Thomas The Thank Engine An autopsy doesn’t consist of just a PCR test, so your reply is pointless.

@TheFire1290 PCR test is too sensible it doesnt react only at covid 19 it reacts on covid like diseases

@Thomas The Thank Engine Your question makes it clear that you have no idea how deaths are determined.

@TheFire1290 Man have lungs cancer and last time he was testing for covid it was positive he died two days after testing...Did he died from lungs cancer or covid?

@Greg Natsumo Showing proof of vaccination doesn't require any additional medical information. Vaccine passports would be banned if that weren't the case, but you clearly can't think critically.

@TheFire1290Lol you gotta be trolling now. Even 5yr olds could comprehend this, let's try a simple exercise: Boss" "You must get the vaccine to continue working here" Employee: "Ah, what proof do you need?" Boss: "Immunization records or vaccine receipt/passport" *Shows boss documents which comprise medical history Therefore the entire transaction which decides your employemt is literally comprised of your medical history

There have been no tests to ensure that this ''vaccine'' is safe, its being tested on the general public. If you die, tuff luck! If you get sick, tuff luck! As the test was certified to give 95% false positives, by its inventor, as it is being used, 95% of deaths claimed to be from covid, are false. Famous quote, updated; ''If you dont read newspapers, (and watch television,) then you are uninformed.'' ''If you do read newspapers, (and watch television,) then you are misinformed.'' Apologies to Mark Twain. The alleged pandemic, is nothing more than a media led, panicdemic. The politicians have to go along with it, because they have to appease the sheeple people, that believe the bullshit media. I for one, will refuse the vaccine.

This is correct. But it is not enough. All restaurants need to be closed down for good. We are told that more and more pandemics are coming and even health departments say that vaccines might not be effective. A permanent lockdown has to happen. This will include closing all schools and universities. Teachers and Professors need to be retrained for post-Covid careers. A public school or college campus is an ocean of infections as are restaurants and bars. The future is staying home and staying safe permanently.

Each to their own I say. The moment you start telling someone what to do is the moment you're saying "I'm above others" which is downright retarded. If someone does or doesn't want to take the vaccine who cares cause the moment you start forcing your way of life onto someone is the moment you've given up on freedom of will and hope for humanity. Or whatever I don't really give 2 fucks.

I was working as an Amazon driver, and our boss told us he was bringing someone in to vax us as soon as possible. I asked if it would be mandatory, and he said that even if Amazon didn't directly require it, he would fire anyone who didn't take it. I refuse to take this vaccine, so my hours were dropped to zero (though I wasn't officially 'fired').

Nope. Even thoroughly tested vaccines don't work 100% so you need to get as many people vaccinated as possible. Also you need herd immunity to protect those who can't (can't, and not won't!) get vaccinated. This "the vaccine either works or it doesn't" kind of thinking perfectly shows how black and white thinking has become.
Wesley Swafford
Wesley Swafford 7 days ago
No, not even a little bit. If YOU are worried about getting sick, then YOU can take the vaccine. Whether or not someone else takes it has no effect on you if the vaccine actually works.

There is no 'uncertainty' of vaccines. That is an ignorant position we are seeing far too much today spread by misinformation. I would love to extract the polio, rubella, measles, chicken pox, small pox and mumps vaccinations from her body and get the popcorn.

Did anyone realize this kind of stuff is what Revelation was warning about with the 666 mark? Rev. 13 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Getting the vaccination won't prevent you from getting COVID. Thats a fact. Theres no point in taking the thing! Wake up! 2nd, it has HUMAN DNA in it. HUMAN DNA. If you have any brain cells left that should worry you enough to not get it.

Now its voluntary .... shortly enough it will become mandatory...first proof of vaccine on the papers, before you know it; it will be required to a visible stamp on your hand or forehead....the vaccine is the mark, visible stamp is just the proof of the mark received.

This is the precursor to the Mark of the Beast. They are trying to get you used to this..... first it was no mask no service......now no vaccine no job! The Mark of the Beast which is talked about in Revelation, the last book of the Bible, means you can't buy or sell without it. It happens during the tribulation after the rapture. The Rapture is when millions around the globe will disappear who are true believers. Those left behind will endure a horrific seven-year tribulation. Don't be left behind.

500,000 dead from COVID, yet the overall statistics of total dead in the US from 2016-2020 hasn't budged. The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 granted the State Dept. the ability to disseminate domestic propaganda (previously intended solely for foreign audiences) in the US by dispersing grants to MSM. What were those "foreign audiences". China for 1 back when Kissinger was propping up Mao Ja Dong. Venezuela is a more recent example.

Eh not saying either side is in the right, but she really should have gotten the vaccine. If she’s working with food and countless numbers of people, they can’t take the chance of her getting it and spreading it. I’m simply looking at this from a business point of view

Well how do we start a bill to make businesses implementing mandatory vaccines illegal? Strike? Protest? Viruses will continue to mutate and jump across species. So how many vaccines will become mandatory in the future? This is a slippery slope. If this virus was significantly deadly I would understand but this one isn't. My body, my right is powerful and we need to make sure we never let that right be infringed on by others....ever.
