    What if they don’t want to take the vaccine? Will the families of the younger ones be forced to take it like everyone in the family took it? Since this is a family thing.

    that you can still get the virus if you get the injecction
    and you can still give it to people,
    you still have to wear a mask

    the efficiency of 95% is only for reducing sypmtoms if you should get the virus

    the MRNA vaccine such as the covid vaccine is the first ever before and has never before been put thru large clinical trials or used as a vaccine therapy before ever
    VAERS has over 4,000 reported deaths and over 200 +pages of adverse reactions from the 3 covid injections in 6 months
    that nobody can force you to take a expirimental medical procedure such as the covid injection

    WALK in faith not in Fear
    God has a plan for each and everyone of us, and when its your time it your time wether it be from covid, crossing the road or when your 90. If you believe in God, trust in him
