  1. It’s really not right that you would force those who want to get involved to be Vaccinated, and boosted with a shot that does Not Prevent the spread, nor infection of Covid 19. I, as many others who choose not to receive a shot that was rushed through emergency measures have Natural immunity from Natural Infection which is superior to the vaccine.
    I feel I have a lot to offer, as well as learn from an opportunity like this… I hope this policy changes soon as science now indicated that whether vaccinated or not, everyone will get Omicrin at some point.
