I’m super pissed!!!!!

My landlord who is a Polish immigrant and also a friend went in to get his second shot of Moderna at Walmart and the pharmacist scared him away not exactly giving misinformation but twisting the information using her position of authority to scare people by asking him if he really needed it telling him he was a part of an experiment and saying it’s not 100% effective and he could still get COVID if he takes the vaccine. She knew he only had one shot. Apparently a couple of other people walked out spooked with this women too.

Since he knows what I do in clinical research, he came right over and showed me the consent and I spent an hour talking to him trying to educate him to go get the second dose but I’m not sure if he’s going to get it now :sad:

I’m going in there after this hair appointment to see what’s up.

I’m planning on it as soon as I get out of this appointment. I need y’all’s help. Can someone point me to the link that shows that Moderna and Pfizer are now fully approved by FDA for adults? I KNOW they were approved but she gave him an informed consent that says it’s still under emergency use. I know parts of it like third booster mix and match, etc. are still EUA but am I losing my mind?! :censored:

The immunization period was almost over when I got out of the salon but she told him it wouldn’t be fully approved until some time in 2023. This women is full of feces coming up with a timeline like that. She made this man question his own judgment. Even though I’m fully vaccinated, I’m going in tomorrow to ask for a Moderna vaccine (he gave me her description- white woman; thankfully the other lady was Asian and their photos are on the wall) and find out what’s going on.

Keep us posted.
You can report her to WalMart corporate office and the people who license Pharmacists in your state. One thing I *DO* like about FL---Medical and Health practice is regulated up to the eyeballs and if there is a complaint against your license its posted (not the details of it) for everyone to see....that you have complaints.

I hope you're not posting this as some kind of "good thing."

Cause this is stupid and so is he.
Our Surgeon General (The black doctor to his right) is a puppet who refused to wear a mask when visiting the office of a senator who is CURRENTLY recovering from Breast Cancer. He didn't have the temerity, public health concern, nor was he gentleman enough to wear a mask for this woman. This guy is the handpicked leader of everything public health in this state.
And now he is asking businesses to pay for adverse reactions if they mandate the trumpvaccine? How ironic.

The same guy who is pushing for a GOP audit in our state...the state trump actually WON hands down. The point of the audit is to sow the seeds of destruction, confusion and chaos. (and its working because GOP and Dem-leaning county elections supervisors are scared and refusing to run for their offices in the next election. Which will open things up for a GOP takeover in elections big and small). Nothing this man says is good. At all.

If you really knew how he is using THIS pandemic to push another agenda. Smoke and Mirrors.

He will WIN and all the stuff he is proposing will come to pass. So that will make you very happy.

But he will then win his re-election, while continuing to cause real harm to POC, women, children and babies. And that will NOT make you happy. But you win the former...so yay. This man is a snake. A smart one too. There are so many people just like you willing to throw away so much for this.

Edited to add: Its nothing wrong with protecting business interests. Saving people from losing employment due to a personal or religious belief. Its his job. Its just he is using a truly altruistic reason for personal and political reasons that will hurt more Floridians than it will help. He is giving a small percentage of people what they want while just ignoring the rest of us....especially the people who have given their lives and hearts to study this stuff. If no one can see that, then just pray for us. We are in trouble under this governor.

Like...there are black people high fiving governor abbot in Texas for banning vaccine mandates, while women in that state are living in those conditions where the same Gov is policing their uterus. Like BLACK women are high-fiving this Gov who has been trying to overturn their vote. Gov. Abbot will have women pushed back into the 50's but they love him because despite himself being vaccinated and protected....he is preventing mandates.


And this is why I want someone to just slingshot me to mars.

I think they all are. Why aren’t the companies leasing or giving the recipe to other countries? Cuz it’sa money grab.

For decades ALL companies go for free federal money. GOP leaning companies had their hand out when Trump boldly told the entire US in 2018 that he was gonna do a tax deal for the top 1%. He claimed it will trickle down to the employees. The CEOs told journalists they had no intention of trickling anything down and will pay their shareholders. He was warned by conservative AND left leaning economist groups that the tax deal will increase the debt. The same debt that Mitch McConnell refuses to increase the debt ceiling to "resolve" the issue. The same Mitch McConnell who signed off and voted for the tax break. Its a circle jerk.
Point is, you're a fool to refuse free Federal money if you can easily fill a need. Whether you are a company contracted to quickly fill the need for masks, PPE, steel, commodity crops, or a vaccine for a not so new virus that you've been working on for the last 10 years.

Its not FREE to mass produce it...its not free to develop it. You still have to pay the scientists and humans involved to work on it day and night, and individuals cannot carry the cost to get one, even through insurance in a way that's affordable. Which is why vaccines needed to travel are not cheap.....So of COURSE, the Federal government will pick up the cost to produce, while saavy investors (I wish I had the money to invest in ANYTHING, and I would have bought stock in the vaccine as well coz business is business) will reap the rewards of how the stock market works. This is a money grab but so is anything else for anyone who can quickly fill a need. Trust me, rich folk invested in PPE as well and reaped rewards. Vaccines, medications, or even new tech are no different.

A lot of voters are gullible, single issue types who can’t see the big picture. High fiving the folks whose policies are literally killing them and their babies like fools.

Weekly Covid testing is an option under the mandate. These companies don’t want to pay for that because it is easier in “at will” and “right to work” states to just fire people.
Exactly. COVID testing makes sense. Then you can rally to work from home if you are healthy enough, and can still earn a wage...but you know these companies ain't trying to hear that. But they gonna learn.

People swear the Great Resignation is all about not wanting work-related vaccine mandates. Its not.

That article was hard to read.
I had to have a spinal block to get a cerclage when I was 13 weeks pregnant in 2017. Took that arrogant Indian Anesthesiologist 2 tries before he had to begrudgingly call in and older white colleague. I hated the feeling. Then in post op he goes "oh see now, wasn't that great, you will opt for the epidural now!" I told him Hell No I would never. I had pain in my back for weeks and 3 small holes in my back cause he was incompetent. He could have had me paralyzed. I sure did have birth in early 2018 with no epidural. I made sure my doula and my OB knew they better not even offer me one. I would rather bite on a stick and bear down. There was no way I was gonna let these fools play with my spine ever again.

And yes, when it comes to black women and childrearing, even many black women Do not GAF. Trading one win for the wins that matter.
