Covid Vaccine Takes A Day Off
Covid Vaccine Takes A Day Off
Covid vaccines are an absolute must, unless it’s a federal holiday. Then, major vaccine sites are closed.
“”SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) – County health departments in Tennessee will not be providing vaccinations on Monday, January 18 in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
According to the Tennessee Department of Health, all county health departments in the Northeast Region will be closed for the holiday.
The Regional COVID-19 Vaccination Registration Line will not be staffed on Monday, Jan. 18th. Community members in Phase 1a, 1b or age 75+ can still register for COVID-19 vaccine online if they have not already registered.
The Sullivan County Regional Health Department will also not be open on Monday.”
It isn’t just Tennessee, vaccination sites all over the country are closed today. Current statistics show that over 24 million people have Covid, nearly 15 million have recovered, and 407 thousand have died from Covid or complications from Covid.
We’ve been told for months how dangerous this virus is. We’ve been told for weeks now that it is urgent that everyone gets vaccinated, even as states dither on who gets the vaccines first and why. New York has had a clunky rollout with Cuomo playing political games all while touting the urgency of everyone getting vaccinated like RIGHT NOW. Los Angeles and California as a whole are struggling with the lockdowns as well as how to distribute the vaccine.
Yet many vaccination sites around the country will be closed today.
“The Dodger Stadium vaccination site, which was once a massive testing location, will be closed on Monday for the Martin Luther King holiday and vaccines will continue being administered on Tuesday morning.”
Do state and federal officials want to know why people aren’t happy with how anything to do with this virus has been handled? This is why!
Americans have been treated to messages of fear, doom, and gloom since March. We’ve also seen far too many examples of ‘do as I say, not as I do’ when it comes to the lockdowns. Since November we’ve been treated an endless ‘vaccine will save us all! It is imperative that you get vaccinated!’ string of messages. Los Angeles, one of the strictest lockdown areas in the country, has seen a major surge in cases in the last few weeks. Even as we receive message after message about getting the vaccine as soon as you can!
Then suddenly we find that Covid vaccination sites will be closed today. Yes indeed, since it is Martin Luther King Day, the Covid vaccine needs a holiday.
What did Biden promise about the vaccines?
“Two of the nation’s top infectious disease experts said Sunday they are confident that President-elect Joe Biden will meet his goal to administer 100 million vaccinations in the first 100 days of the administration.
“The feasibility of his goal is absolutely clear, there’s no doubt about it that that can be done,” said Anthony Fauci, incoming chief medical adviser to Biden, on NBC’s “Meet the Press.””
You know, if Biden holds to his promise (insert major skeptical face here), then that 100 days will include President’s Day. That’s a federal holiday as well. Does Biden’s 100 days 100 million vaccines include federal holidays or not?
It’s absolutely URGENT that everyone gets vaccinated, with glaring exceptions that included Christmas, New Years, and now Martin Luther King Day.
It's not actually an emergency to the people who we need to act like this is an emergency— PoliMath (@politicalmath) January 17, 2021
Call me crazy, but needlessly delaying when a life-saving vaccine is administered to thousands of people does not strike me as the appropriate way to honor Martin Luther King Jr. https://t.co/KkOOQBNCEJ— Yascha Mounk (@Yascha_Mounk) January 17, 2021
The virus doesn’t take nights and weekends off. We ALL know that. Yet, as we’ve seen, the urgency is only there for the cameras when it comes to testing. Now we find out that Covid vaccine needs a day off as well.
Do our fabulous state health department officials and governors want to know why Americans don’t trust them regarding the Wuhan flu and the vaccine process? Giving the Covid vaccine a day off is Exhibit A.
