    1. @Tyson Ballard : Actually, that is Capitalism. Private businesses are part of the free enterprise system. You do know what Capitalism is, don’t you?

    2. We have ‘war profiteers’ here in the UK, scalping the public using a flood of expensive private COVID testing companies with no pricing restrictions. They have managed to make a fast buck out of a genuine deadly global healthcare crisis.

    3. @Dixon Uranus The real profiteers are insider dealers like Rand Paul, plus Kelly Loeffler and her husband.

    4. @Tyson Ballard You just got owned by @Trumpocalypse, sir. The usual tired and baseless GOP ‘you’re a communist if you disagree’ BS. And I note you conveniently omitted Trump’s ex-KGB spymaster’s nation in your list. Reagan would be spinning in his grave.

    1. @Gabe Dudley Yeah, that’s not a concern. Better living through chemistry is reflected in my full medicine cabinet. And, ya know, the fact that I’m alive.

  1. Questions regarding the future evolution of humanity arise. Looks like it’ll be based on whether or not people have the resources and intelligence to get vaccinated for this, and upcoming maladies. Bye bye antivaxxers!!!

    1. Bye bye Rob Young. I’m sorry you’re so sickly. I’m not. I’m also not overweight, nor do I drink or smoke or use drugs. My immune system works just fine. Had Covid, was sick for two days. Yep, Darwinism is really rooting out the spoiled goods…

    2. @DJ Jones Look at the infections of the states with the lowest vaccination rates. They’re the worst yet. Also, if you weren’t ignorant, you’d know that evolution works at a population level, not an individual. So, while you’re only concerned with yourself, others are concerned with the whole of humanity.

    3. @Rob Young is seriously think about stopping at two shots bud. Imagine how scrambled you’re is already.

    4. @Tyson Ballard – you joined YouTube one week ago, and have already made 450 comments on this channel. Also, it’s obvious that you don’t know English very well.

  2. Long-term care facilities will find it challenging to implement this as there is already a shortage of these workers and adding requirements will decrease the number of people willing to work there. I like the requirement but it may result in a loss of beds at these facilities.

    1. @Michael Moy me too. Now it’s Biden’s turn to resign for all of his inappropriate behavior regarding children

    2. @Tyson Ballard That doesn’t appear to be much of a concern to the general public. I also prefer President Biden to President Harris.

    3. @Tyson Ballard sad you have my last name. I am a liberal and I love America. I worked with 32 Covid positive patients and never got Covid because I wore more than one mask at work, and limited my interactions with the public

    4. @Tyson Ballard No, we love America. We just see that our country isn’t perfect and can be made better with some effort. If you love something or someone flawed, really love them, then you try to make it better. Only cowards stand by and let things stay the same because they are comfortable with how things are.

  3. Also the problem with all SM platforms is that they have started recruiting ppl from cheap labor countries to mount a defence or a “trend” or “views”. The algorithm cant tell if the person making comment is an illiterate or a person with some education.
    So, these international trolls are used to “influence” the online stats…and these ppl have NO BUSINESS commenting on topics of different countries.
    All the while the ad revenue continues to fuel the process.
    So Sick business process!

    1. Then said babies remains are turned into a vaccine that y’all are lining up to get put into your body. If that isn’t plain evil I don’t know what is

    2. @No Show Joe You missed the bit about “that do not effect anyone else”. Stupidly refusing to be vaccinated is crowding our hospitals, and those with other medical problems, are dying because of it.

    3. @Tyson Ballard You’ve missed the children whose hearts, lungs, and brains, have been permanently damage by Covid. Many survived polio, crippled, yet we still vaccinated against it.

    4. @Deborah Freedman Are you actually this stupid? The part when it affects any one else? Does it affect a baby when you MURDER IT??

  4. This is necessary because the Trump States will likely start a new strain, one that might be immune to the current vaccines.

    1. Let’s also not forget about when Navi pelosi went and had a spa day while she had you locked down at your house.

    2. Or how about the time Gavin newsome was out hobnobbing at restaurants while he told you to stay home to stop the spread?

    3. How about that one time the same President that told you to mask up and get a vaccine opened the floodgates to thousands upon thousands of maskless and unvaccinated illegal aliens?

    4. Let’s definitely not forget about the time we had a plane full of unmasked Texas Democrats crying about how Texas is not masking up kindergartners

  5. Trump released the leader of the Taliban from prison and negotiated the US withdrawal from Afghanistan with him. Did everyone miss those great victory speeches from Trump and his administration?

    1. (CNN)President Joe Biden is struggling against an intensifying examination of his judgment, competence and even his empathy over the chaotic US exit from Afghanistan. And each attempt the administration makes to quell a furor that’s tarnishing America’s image only provokes more questions about its failures of planning and execution

    2. Gitmo was illegal asf and wrong my man. Lol not that I agree but it is part of our nations beliefs to not do that. Also trump did negotiate a withdrawal, but Biden was the one to actually do it, horribly.

  6. Just tell me when and where to get my Booster Shot. I had COVID-19 and it sucked Donkeys. I got my Pfizer shots as soon as I could.

    1. @Ralph Boyd Jokes on you. My hospital mandated the vaccine so I’ve had the jab to keep my job. If it wasn’t mandated no I wouldn’t have taken the jab.

    2. @Rad tech Further proof that the government needs to just mandate vaccination, and stop trying to convince idiots to do the right thing.

    3. @Deborah Freedman WRONG government is not ruler of people. You should have a choice. If you want it great if not great. I don’t care one way or another, but mandating a experimental drug on Americans is GENOCIDE by government!!!! Ivermectin works. Doctor went on CSPAN with evidence to give to CDC, FDA, NIH and they have ignored it. Why?

  7. All because people with degrees in google search who think their “research” is equivalent to the combined knowledge of thousands of doctors and scientists. There is a reason they barely got their high school degrees and cannot come close to an advance degree. No critical thinking skills.

    1. @E BI’ve a BA in microbiology from UCLA. Then went to grad school in computer science. I got vaccinated as soon as it was available to me. I’ve not read one paper, by a credible scientist, that is against the vaccines. Osteopaths and other quacks don’t count.

    2. @Deborah Freedman I never said anything about vaccines. I understand the original video is about the booster shot but I’m replying to what this guy said strictly.

    1. It’s more of the same, in this case. The issue seems to be that the effectiveness of the vaccines appears to decrease over time, and the hope is that with booster shots we can prevent more breakthrough cases. The vaccines are still largely effective against the delta variant, though not as much as against earlier strains. So between decreasing effectiveness of the vaccine itself (which, for all I know, may really just be delta and lambda breaking through) and the increasing resilience of the coronavirus strains, the boosters should help prevent serious disease.

      All that said, with the coronavirus having already become so widespread, I expect we’re going to need new doses every year or more much like it’s a different flu shot every year. That, of course, will need constant study with new versions of the vaccine in the future. But the boosters they reference now are the same.

    1. If people would get vaccinated we could break Covids back. I don’t understand why th we vaccination numbers are still so low when we see what happens if you’re not vaccination. Delta has an R number of 6, more than double Alpha. Folks need to get those original shots. I’m all for getting a booster shot but yikes, folks, get vaccinated!

  8. Remember to get vaccinated or a vaccinated person might get sick from the virus they got vaccinated against because you’re not vaccinated.

    Sounds legit.

  9. A “vaccine” so effective, you need a booster… 2 months after taking the first 2
    Makes sense to me.
