"NEW YORK, Aug 4 (Reuters) - Pfizer Inc (PFE.N), the U.S. drugmaker that developed a COVID-19 vaccine with German partner BioNTech , said on Wednesday it will require all its U.S. employees and contractors to become vaccinated against COVID-19 or participate in weekly COVID-19 testing."

Why do I comment???

Not a anti vaccine. I have asked this question with no answer from gov, medical field or friends. Why trust companies that have been sued criminally and civilly? Also let’s not forget the Medical field and pharmaceutical companies pushed Opioids. Just asking why we should trust them.

Verdad

Consider trusting the data. Safe and effective vaccines are widely available Feel free to participate, if not don't complain about anything Covid related again.

Mamatres5

Absolutely not, my medical status is nobody’s business

Verdad

Have you been vaccinated? Or are you still contributing to the pandemic?

JF71

Im Not but you 'vaccinated' people sure are spreading it around. Thanks for that!

Verdad

Only if we get infected. Which is rare, Well duh!

gothelittle

My answer was "no", and the reason is because tests have shown that the vaccine I had is effective against the Delta variant. When the Democrats flipped out and claimed that the vaccines were worthless because Trump, I trusted the science. When the Democrats flipped out and said everyone needed the vaccine because Biden, I trusted the science. I've seen the reports come in, one-by-one, for each vaccine, and the one I had is particularly good against all current variants. So I trust the science.

Verdad

You trust the science so much that you are trying to politicize the vaccine? Cool.

gothelittle

Nope, I'm doing the opposite. If I were to politicize the vaccine, I wouldn't take it. I've got a long history of being hurt by Democrat policies. Sorry if that breaks your heart. But if they want to gain my trust, they've got to do better than raising the costs of gas and food every darn time they get into office and then taxing the working poor every time they need more money. I took the vaccine because I was looking at the studies. Better luck next time.

Verdad

Nice try. I can read, thanks. That is exactly what you did. The vaccine and the virus do not have politics.

Brian C. Duffy

Democrats never said vaccines were "worthless".

September 2020:

"Washington Gov. Jay Inslee demonstrated the Democrats’ balancing act on Friday when asked whether he would be willing to take a vaccine released by the administration before the election.

“If all the protocols had been followed and the evidence is in, of course, I’d follow science. It doesn’t matter when it happens,” Inslee told The Associated Press. “But I would have to look at the science, not Donald Trump. There isn’t one single thing I would ever trust from Donald Trump to be true.”

gothelittle

That's nice, but I wasn't referring to Inslee.

Verdad

Let us know what politician you were referring to while you were not politicizing the vaccine?

JF71

No you just have st fauxi the serial liar at the helm. Not much science going on.

Florida_Bound

They can ask all they want. I will just say "I'm good".

If that's not good enough for them, I will gladly take my money elsewhere

Dan7543

You don't pay for the vaccine.

SunnyDay

No, it's nobodies business!, including businesses and companies. What happen to the all mighty HIPAA? When somebody asks me, I ask them if they have had a proctology exam lately. We will NEVER get 70%, we will probably not exceed 50%, which is a damned site better than the average of 38% for the flu vaccines. Adding to that, these untested vaccines will not last - like the flu vaccine, you need a new one annually, and it's a "guess" as to where the flu has mutated. It will be exactly the same for Covid. The good news it has an equal chance of mutating to be less powerful as it does to become more powerful. People getting vaccines now will be getting boosters in the fall when the virus picks back up. The numbers are lower now just as the flu numbers are always lower this time of the year. Wait until fall, oh, and no Trump to blame this time. Glorious!

Aye Watcher

WHAT?!? No TRUMP to blame?!? I am sure we can say it is his fault SOMEHOW!!! [beam][smile]

Verdad

Probably time to move on from Trump. If you can...

Dan7543

I can see you don't know what HIPPA actually says.
