Public workers need vaccination but private workers don't, because science

I stopped taking this serious when they said that natural immunity wasn’t effective. From that point on, I knew there would just be walk back after walk back.

Most of the city has natural immunity + the vaccine doesn’t stop the spread and has limited efficacy. This is nothing more than public officials not admitting they were wrong.

Fucksake, people here STILL complaining about the vaccine mandate during a global pandemic when thousands of people were dying per day from the virus. Wild.

Literally we all needed vaccinations for public school decades before COVID was even a thing.

Edit: on top of this, do people just not remember that we had to set up medical tents in Central Park because hospitals were overrun in 2020? There’s a good reason that’s not happening anymore.

I've been getting a lot of shit on this sub regarding my stance on the vaccine. I'll continue to post my thoughts because tbh, I don't give a shit what some of the vaccine enthusiasts write.

People talk about following the "science" yet only followed selective science. I had the original alpha strain in March 2020, missed six weeks of work because of it. Nastiest fucking infection I ever fought off in my life. Even simple tasks like washing dishes or showering winded me like I just ran a marathon. That being said, I do feel the vaccine is a good thing and do believe it helped quell the pandemic. However, PLENTY of people (like myself) who were infected before the vaccines were available to the public had natural immunity. I was forced to get vaccinated under threat of termination from my current job. I complied because I obviously wasn't going to throw away a six figure career and tbh, I probably have and still occasionally do put way worse shit into my body voluntarily.

However, all science should apply to mandates like this, not just a blanket policy forcing all to get vaccinated that disregards the science of natural immunity. People have developed long lasting and probably permanent side effects from this vaccine. No one should have to endure that just so someone else can feel safer, ESPECIALLY if that person has already recovered from covid and tests positive for antibodies.

Then when you see shit like our psychotic governor walking around with a "vaxed" necklace, kinda makes you question the motives behind the mandates, especially when her dirty laundry just recently got aired out about her involvement with kickbacks.

Quick question? How is questioning the efficacy of the vaccine dismissing covid 19?? Why are comments of that sort getting deleted. Ridiculous

without commenting on vaccine mandates i will say the biotech that made this vaccine possible at such an accelerated development schedule is fucking mind blowing. anyone that doesn't trust it because it "came out too fast" is either an idiot or a hypocrite

I agree with the Mayor on this.

I thought the reasoning is that if they eliminate/​waive the COVID mandate then every other vaccine mandate will be challenged. Polio is a big concern right now. Once you open the floodgate it can really drown the courts in these stupid lawsuits or challenges or whatever you call them. People will want to argue other vax such as polio/​smallpox/​etc/ vaccine is unconstitutional to mandate.
