#MSNBC #Vaccinations


  1. Is there a reading test required to get the vaccine?
    Because that would explain why so many republicans haven’t gotten the shot yet.

    1. @J C kids got vaccines in the past that was a dead or dying virus. This is a new thing that technically isn’t a vaccine

    2. If you’re not wearing a mask indoors around strangers, that is you risk. As for children, we do not know the long term health consequences of COVID. Why allow children to get a long term debilitating illness? Once one gets those tiny COVID clots in their blood stream, diabetes, heart disease, kidney problems, and/or other ailments will follow.

    3. @ruth depew I am glad kids are not humanizing each other that way the death camps will be easy to fill

    4. The more who are vaccinated the better for the Republicans who need help. Kids could give it to the grandparents, which would be sad. This is science,

  2. Is that mean,after this…children at age 12 or higher can get vaccinated too with the same vaccine?.Sounds hopeful…

    1. Cancel and resist Conservative Voter Suppression in all its forms like purity of the ballot laws. There, fixed it for you.

    2. @John Yaya The filth that are pushing voter suppression are not conservatives. They are just right wing hate mongers, fascists, and white supremacists.
