    Springdale, Ark. – August 3, 2021 – To protect team members, their families and their communities, Tyson Foods (NYSE: TSN), is requiring its team members at U.S. office locations to be fully vaccinated by October 1, 2021. All other team members are required to be fully vaccinated by November 1, 2021, subject to ongoing discussions with locations represented by unions.

    This action makes Tyson Foods the largest U.S. food company to require COVID-19 vaccinations for its entire workforce. Almost half of Tyson Foods’ U.S. workforce has been vaccinated and coronavirus infection rates among team members remain low.

    “Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the single most effective thing we can do to protect our team members, their families and their communities,” said Dr. Claudia Coplein, Chief Medical Officer, Tyson Foods. “With rapidly rising COVID-19 case counts of contagious, dangerous variants leading to increasing rates of severe illness and hospitalization among the U.S. unvaccinated population, this is the right time to take the next step to ensure a fully vaccinated workforce.”

    I'm sure this will end up in the courts. Tyson is just the first big name. Others will follow.

    Whether anyone is for or against the vaccine, it doesn't matter. Letting them get away with this will set a dangerous precedent. Might be a Covid vaccine this time, but what about down the road when the government comes up with something else they want to force on us.

    Agree. Other big corporations will fall in line. Walmart and Delta come to mind.
    If you can't control what is injected into your body, then you have no rights at all.
    If there is ever a hill to die on, this would be it.
    This and vaccine passports.

    So how long until they make it a requirement for ALL drivers that load at their facilities?

    A bunch of medical workers in Houston were told by a judge about a month ago that if they didn't want to take the shot, they could find another employer that didn't require it. If you think there is actual justice in the courts at this point, I don't know what to tell you other than, "wake the F up".

    I am completely blown away by what is happening in this country. Never thought I would see it. Let’s look at a few things about this vaccine. Facts!!!

    1. It is not even FDA approved yet. It’s still considered an experimental vaccine. Only approved for emergency use.

    2. Unlike other vaccines in the past that actually worked, this vaccine does not work. It works less against the Delta strain and the strain that is coming behind the Delta strain? That that will be here in a few months? It does not work at all in any capacity on that strain. that’s strain, like the Delta variant will become the dominant latest Covid strain. The vaccine will be useless at that point.

    3. It causes a permanent spike proteins to happen in those who are vaccinated. In some, this causes an immediate deterioration of your cardiovascular system. Via inflammation. And erosion of your veins. And others it takes more time. But in everyone who is vaccinated they will face this spike protein, it is permanent, and at some later point will cause severe health problems. For some, it’s immediate, for others it might be a decade from now. But make no doubt about it you will have cardiovascular issues at some point in your life from the vaccine. This is why many scientists feel the FDA has not given it a stamp of approval yet. Because they know this is going on.

    4. If the vaccine actually completely worked and prevented infection and prevented mutations, it might make some sense but it does not do that. Also is the fact that they are not allowing those to bypass the vaccine who have developed natural immunity. Natural immunity is supreme to all immunity in this case. Those who have had the virus and gotten over it have superior immunity to those vaccinated. Why if you’ve already had the virus and gotten over it should you also have to take a vaccine? Again that won’t work in six months from now.

    This is nonsense abd I wholeheartedly feel it is indeed a conspiracy of some kind.

    After World War two America signed on to the Nuremberg convention which stated no one could be used in experimental medical treatments without consent.
    The government can not force you to take the vaccine. So they are going to use corporations to force you to comply.
    In my opinion this vaccine doesn't work so why is the government so intent on getting everyone to take it.
