    Article from The Truckers Report


    "New guidance published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) suggests that some Americans may get first access to a COVID-19 vaccine once one becomes available to the public. Among those first in line could be commercial truck drivers.
    The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is made up of medical and public health experts who make recommendations to the CDC on how and when vaccines should be used. In normal times, the 15 members who sit on the committee meet only three times a year. Since the COVID-19 pandemic however, ACIP has been meeting – virtually – about once a week.
    The meetings are all open to the public via webcast. People can even submit a request to make a public comment. You can register for the next ACIP meeting on their website."

    It may not take too long until one can't drive for any carrier without showing proof they have been vaccinated.... This crap is making it harder and harder for anybody to do anything...

    I'll refuse the vaccine. I stopped trusting the government a long time ago.

    Yeah, I’m definitely not going to be taking it anytime soon. I’ve lived in truck stops since the virus hit and alive to tell the story. After a year or so I’ll re-evaluate and see if y’all that took it are still kicking, or if it’s even still needed at that point. If they force it on drivers I have other means.

    Same here. If I had other issues I might think about it, but for now I'll pass.

    Funny how most every blue collar worker I talk to is against the vaccine. I'm finding more and more are questioning the "pandemic" lately as well.

    The government may not make the vaccine mandatory at first, but there are several ways to force people to be vaccinated. For example, companies may reject employees who are not vaccinated. Or even services may be denied to those who do not present the vaccination card proving that they are properly vaccinated.
    We are entering an era of digital control that is being intensified very quickly. Soon we will have our medical information among other things in a chip on a card or something similar.

    This is a first of it's kind RNA vaccine.
    As of today about 13 million people have tested positive, that's about 4 percent of the population.
    If you are under 70 you have a 99.9 percent chance of survival.

    I have some health issues and I have my doubts that I would survive a bad case of this virus. But my wife and I have decided to take a wait and see position on the vaccines. I don't trust our government either. No one bit.
