    Yes, Employer Can Require Covid Vaccine

    I'm just going to laugh at the ruling party nonsense. Funny that you keep coming back with more vaccine fear mongering for additional doses of that "hate". It's like you enjoy the conflict. You seem really disturbed that no one knows for certain how this pandemic began. It's odd that discovering that important detail is more important to you than ending the pandemic with vaccines. It's like you don't realize that the origins of this pandemic are instructive to prevent the next event rather than in mitigating the current event. Are you interested in slowing the spread of the more contagious Delta variant? How would you propose to do that with open businesses and no mask mandates in communities and states having less than 50% of their populations vaccinated? The one case you noted is tragic. Myocarditis can kill people. Here are some other cases. No experts are recommending avoiding or delaying vaccinating because of these cases. https://www.aappublications.org/news/2021/06/04/covid-vaccine-myocarditis-case-reports-060421

    You aren't making sense. Our first interaction was this... 10 hours ago 10 hours ago, NurseBlaq said: I think she probably would have had a better outcome had she not tried the false nazi equivalency. I responded with this "They have to make the most emotional appeal because the appeal is primarily based in emotion. In other words, without those false equivalents they have nothing" ... You followed that with vaccine Nazi name calling and spiraled from there into this agitated ranting that just doesn't make sense...apparently because you think I'm bullying antivaxxers. Whatever. Your rant is unrelated to this topic and I'm done entertaining your agitation looking for a cause. I don't care if you don't like the way I interact with the antivaxxers amd I'm not going to change just because you are upset and calling names.

    What are you talking about? Clearly you care about something here that inspired you to take this thread in this direction...and then you accusee me of being the complainer...after you complain and name call over the content in this thread.

    It was mostly your own words...copied and pasted back for review. Gaslighting eh? I'm not certain what your objective is in this thread. Is it just to tell us that you feel offended by the way we've dealt with the antivaxxers? Is it to let us know that you think that we are Nazi bullies that are attacking people who can't safely vaccinate?

    I honestly have no idea what this comment of yours really means. Don't paint me with a victim brush, I'm not interested in that sort of emotional whining. I'm interested in data, evidence, and sound public health policy and practice from health professionals.

    Most of it was your previous comment...did it make you feel better when you wrote it?

    Yeah...so since you didn't peddle pseudoscience here I'm not certain why you're feeling so agitated about this pushback against members who did. No, I haven't generalized about all people who aren't vaccinated...I've responded to people who have expressed emotional rather than evidentiary reasons for not vaccinating. It's not clear to me why you can acknowledge that people have shared pseudoscience here but it's wrong for me to counter their fear mongering and misinformation. I'm not about to coddle partisan vaccine refusers and if that's going to disturb you then you will need to decide whether to read and participate. I'm not going to stop posting just because antivaxxers feel like they are getting bullied by the truth and that makes you unhappy.

    LOL Just because someone has a different opinion doesnt mean that the opinion is founded in facts evidence or science. That's been clearly demonstrated in this thread. I didn't say you shared pseudoscience, you choose to apply a generic observation about the antivaxxers to yourself. Comparing me or others who are pushing back against antivaxxers to Nazis doesn't help your argument. Health professionals who make decisions based upon feelings and fears rather than facts and evidence and then want to announce that in public forums deserve the scrutiny and correction. They are asking for it right? Otherwise they might consider not sharing that unscientific thinking in this forum for discussion, don't you think? Describing public health recommendations based upon sound science as just "a little box" is odd but OK. It's not MY box.

    People can choose. Fine. Just don't come to a nursing platform and expect to share pseudoscience and fear mongering as some sort of legitimate rationale for not vaccinating. No one is bullying people who cannot vaccinate. No one is bullying the deniers and fear mongerers. They simply don't like the facts amd evidence amd don't enjoy being corrected in public forums. There is no substantial risk of death following vaccination for covid 19 and therefore that is not a legitimate cause to avoid vaccination. If the push back against the antivaxxers is upsetting for you, maybe you should avoid these threads?

    Yeah. Yay for us. Health care workers get their trauma minimized because the military feel so unappreciated for their sacrifices that seem to have zero relevance to American life. That's what it seems like to me. Poor Americans deal with uncertainty regularly. It's personal sacrifice that was such a stretch for so many Americans.

    How many active duty military were killed in military endeavors in 2020? We know that some died from COVID19. Most people who choose to work in healthcare don't expect that it might kill them...it's not like volunteering for the military. You can appreciate that, right? Or is it necessary to minimize the PTSD of other professions for some reason?

    Do you think your professional covid experience is representative of the overall experience? 3600 health care workers died in 2020 from covid.

    You didn't offer up any examples of her speech that you believe contributes to hate crimes. As I mentioned, I don't think the recent tweet meets that standard and asked for other examples. It is curious that this woman has attracted your scorn for language and dress while you completely ignore inappropriate language and dress from others.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    What we will see is that the Delta variant will surge to the forefront among those people because it is more contagious and more deadly to younger people. In Brazil that variant affects those who previously had infection and were seropositive. When groups of people make decisions based upon emotions and feelings rather than facts and evidence during infectious outbreaks, they endanger everyone. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-021-01347-0
