      I don’t get my reality from the Tell-Lie-Vision.

    • @Jeffrey Cheng
      No, you get your “reality” from people stupid enough to think a vaccine is “poison.” The TV would be an improvement.

      @CShield that’s rich calling someone coward when you won’t ever run your mouth face to face. You leftists make me laugh. All talk and zero action

    • @Hogan Slipstream Lmfao…you’re triggered and projecting. That’s adorable. You have no idea what I would or wouldn’t do, princess.

    Stop sending them vaccines, reroute it to Michigan.

    I live in Mississippi:
    People aren’t getting vaccinated not because of trust but because –
    -They do not have a way to get there
    -They do NOT know it’s free
    -They think they are not eligible/do not understand why the government would want to help them

    • @Julian Benson But they won’t, and that’s a result of the Republican party – they absolutely will do NOTHING to help people. (two glaringly obvious cases in point: Ted Cruz, and Donald Trump – and there many, many more)

    • @Demetria Karnavas My federal, congressional rep actually sent out emails and letters, early on, to every registered constituent (ALL of them – Republican and Democrat), explaining everything we need to know about getting the vaccine. And our rep sends out regular emails keeping us updated. That’s a Democrat rep, by the way. It’s really not that difficult to do. But the representative has to care about and be an actual REPRESENTATIVE of the local people.

    • Demetria Karnavas | April 18, 2021 at 10:31 PM | Reply

      @Phil Groves That’s great your rep did that. There definitely needs to be more outreach.

    • @Demetria Karnavas There does. It’s absurd that there’s not. It’s not that difficult. Mention it to your rep – email them, write them an actual letter, go to their local state office and talk with them. They are YOUR rep, they need to be listening and working for their constituents (which includes you).

    • @David Gray I also am from MS and he’s right. It’s not how we think , it’s facts on the ground.

  6. New $1 trillion lawsuit against Trump for covid related deaths. There are now 75 plaintiffs and growing

    • @Dennie Saunders Trump lied about it,downplayed it by his own admission..

    • Stupid

    • @Dennie Saunders Well, first of all, it’s not fake, and that shows (clearly) that you are either a troll or a dumbshit, most likely both. But it was Donald’s job to mitigate and reduce the tragedy within the United States. He did not. He idly stood by and stood back, and he ignored, downplayed, and neglected the danger inherent in this virus. Donald did it all knowingly and willfully. Donald is directly responsible for politicizing and thwarting public health guidelines – he is an inhuman monster. The lawsuit will go nowhere (unfortunately), but it needed to be brought forward.

    • @Dale B Wouldn’t it be great to see over 500,000 people (maybe even a million!) join this lawsuit? It would be HUGE!

    • @HotSauce Yep.

    I just got my mom a vaccine appointment for her first shot at RiteAid, she’s in the over 50+ category. I’m in the over 16+ category, CA just opened it, and I’m struggling to book an appointment for my first shot.

  8. Ship the shots to Michigan, and quarantine the entire state of Mississippi

    • Earl Mcqueen | April 18, 2021 at 9:22 PM | Reply

      @Bianca Culpo they states that are not sheep’s right the ones who don’t trust a evil government right the same government who won’t tell you what’s in the vaccine how many people died from the vaccine again that’s right they don’t talk about that

    • ​@Vernon Engbino If they don’t want the vaccine, then send it to people who need it.

    • Vernon Engbino | April 18, 2021 at 9:44 PM | Reply

      @gi4dtv It is not that simple. If it were, the government would have had sent it elsewhere.

    • Vernon Engbino | April 18, 2021 at 9:47 PM | Reply

      @Augustus Caesar I never said it was punishing them. Their loss should they reject the vaccine and get the virus.

    If old people won’t sign up for shots while they have priority, simply lower the age where people can sign up for shots and keep vaccinating until you run out of volunteers. Once the age restrictions are gone and everyone who wanted a shot got one, thoughts and prayers to those who opted out.

    • Or help the old people. For many it’s not a won’t, it’s a can’t.

    • @Kicapu Important point!

    • Definitely need community services but saying the people who won’t be vaccinated can be ignored is another example of still not understanding contagious, highly infectious, easily transmitted. This is an actual case of where we go one we go all. A single person won’t make much difference, but each time the virus infects a new person it has a chance to mutate.

    • Teardown Dan | April 18, 2021 at 6:57 PM | Reply

      @Maria G. You can worry about the people who refuse to get it once you are about to run out of people who want it.

  10. I’m sure there are plenty of people willing to drive down and get them .

  11. Then they should lose them and send them to states that need them. Oh and maybe close those states off from the rest of us.

    We should be able to see statistics for every state so we can know where not to travel

    Mississippi has been last in education for a long time. Could ignorance be a factor?

    • Lack of transportation? Lack of info on where to go/ who’s eligible? Lots of people who refuse for political reasons? Some for reasons of historical distrust? Probably all of the above.

    I see this in my red state as well. Twice there has been an announcement from the in-store pharmacy they have available covid vaccines.

  16. The scientific ignorance in this country is going to destroy us.

    How people would risk their lives over politics is something I will never understand.

    • @K Cooper oh yes so let’s just force 7 billion people to be vaccinated.

    • @Sue Howie I agree 💯 we will just sit back and watch the thinning of the herd, if you are dumb enough to take the shot you deserve what ever becomes of you.

    • @Aaron Yayo Perfect..

    • @Aaron Yayo You can’t force anyone to do anything, it is just that elderly people are prone to die from the virus. Between you and I, it is my personal wish that every person who refuses to get the vaccine would just die a horrible death.👍👍

    • What about the people who have the T-cell in their blood to make them naturally immune to covid, why take the risk of a vaccine with unknown long term effects?

  18. If we had more people like them, we’d have less people like them.

    Mississippi has a long history of doing great harm to itself and it’s citizens.
    God bless!

  20. If they don’t want the vaccine, then send it to people who need it.
