  1. I am with you. It is such a divide in our country. I think the media plays a big factor in this. Who do we believe anymore? What even is the correct information/statistics? We have already witnessed several large news outlets apologizing for putting out skewed data and pictures on their broadcasts. We are living in scary times.

    Influenza vaccine

    I would like to weigh in on this. As a nurse who has been forced into getting the flu vaccine due to being a health care worker over the past 10 years. (I know when I say forced people will say- you can always wear a mask and I get that) but with the mask there is a stigma attached to that. I am supposed to set an example as I am a supervisor of my department. Here are my issues with mandated flu vaccine: 1) yes it is true that every single time I have gotten my flu vaccine I do have a "reaction"- I know I don't get the flu but I do get sick and usually will have to plan the shot to be administered to me on a Friday as I know that all weekend I will be feeling ill. 2) I have and my co-workers thatt receive the flu vaccine every year do get the flu. We get tested and we either have A or B. 3) Pretty much every year "the powers that be" report that the flu vaccine is only like 20% effective-so really what is the point? 4) People can argue with me and tell me oh your symptoms will be less intense if you do receive the flu vaccine than if you did not. Really? where is the science in this- where is the proof? Even if there is proof it is probably botched by government/ and big pharma as they work together; for every health care worker that receives the vaccine gets a monetary kick back to the healthcare institution from the government- funny how that is isn't it-now do you realize why your healthcare agency pushes it so much? They run campaigns, have contests, update you weekly on flu vaccine employee compliance. Do you really think this is about protecting people? NO it is about control and money. How is it that we give so many vaccines that are supposed to keep us healthy yet we are one of the sickest countries in the world?

    Article Contest: How is the Covid 19 Affecting Your Life?

    My whole life has been effected by covid19. Physically, emotionally, most notably mentally. This has take a toll on my family structure, socializing and my monetary income. It has depleted my morals, and has me questioning whether or not I should continue to be a nurse. It has brought out people’s true colors, and sides of co workers I have never seen before. It has taken my faith in America and turned it on it’s side. This virus has made me feel lost in a world that I used to feel secure in.
