9/21/2021 9:19 AM

No. Very surprised to see Biden act like a Republican in this sense. Stomping all over freedom isn't the way forward. Trump was bad enough with doing that kind of thing (bump stock ban for example) but now it feels like we are reliving Trump's tyrannical reign.

9/21/2021 8:11 AM

Absolutely.... Unless someone has a severe medical excuse for not being able to get it, I can't seem to understand why people want to put themselves and those who cannot be vaccinated (like our children) at risk. It amazes me how many people do not care about elderly/medically compromised/little children. I am appalled at our community. Canton is only at 52% vaccination rate.. and yet on Facebook, etc they are complaining about the numbers going up and the death numbers going up. Stop complaining if you are not going to be a solution to the problem... GET VACCINATED.

9/21/2021 7:34 AM

I am completely awe-struck with what we have become as a nation. This coordinated divide will be the downfall of the nation. Be prepared, for this is only the beginning. The writing is on the wall, and the majority refuse to read it....

9/21/2021 7:26 AM

Absolutely. This county has a 6.9% positivity rate, schools are shutting down and children are dying but their political egos want “personal choice”. We live amongst unintelligent hillbillies so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. But in reality, they’re the sheep following the anti-vax, personal choice craze. Just get vaccinated.

9/21/2021 6:36 AM

Our President is a moron.

9/21/2021 6:23 AM

With rights comes responsibilities - when people refuse to accept their responsibilities, there must be mandates to protect the greater good.

9/21/2021 6:09 AM

not at all we dont know side effects long term of shot to know how it will affect us at a later date

9/21/2021 5:05 AM

700,000 people dead and people are refusing to stop the dying by getting vaccinated - the only sure way to stop this pandemic? Whatever happened to having each other's backs?

9/20/2021 9:58 PM

It is unconstitutional. My body My Choice

9/20/2021 8:39 PM

This final endorsement, per se, was initially setup for all employees and all health centers to get immunized BUT ofcourse as expected then " come the "radical snowflakes" crying about... against their religion BS, as if any of them have been to a church service in their life , whatevers !! Bottom line ... I'm in healthcare ... an RN working daily with patients who didn't believe in a shot ,"it's all fake news"...... ok so how do you defend that !!! Yes we're here , we'll always be ... will you ?

9/20/2021 8:29 PM

Its somebodies plan, but I suspect sleepy Joe first heard about it as he read the teleprompter..

9/20/2021 7:06 PM

If the anti-vaxxers had gotten their shots when they were eligible instead of selfishly worrying about "their" rights, we wouldn't be in the middle of this fourth wave now. Covid-19 would be in the rearview mirror instead of a daily headline. The economy and schools would be back to normal. Instead, Covid is quickly mutating inside of many anti-vaxxer bodies and will evade our current vaccines. We may be living with Covid for a long time because folks are unwilling to get a vaccine. How selfish, irresponsible, uncharitable, and un-Christian. Jesus would have gotten the vaccine.

9/20/2021 6:37 PM

I 100% support this. A lot of people wish they got the vaccination after they catch Covid. For people that want to 'do their own research', the research has been done for you already. Millions upon millions of people have gotten the vaccination and are doing fine. I find it so surprising that people fear a pinprick more than this awful disease that has destroyed so many lives.

9/20/2021 5:01 PM

None of these "vax & mask" mandates are Constitutional, according to my reading of that cherished document that limits the power of our elected officials. We The People are the rightful rulers of our destinies and tyrants, no matter the color of their stripes, must not overstep the controls exerted over government that our Constitution guarantees. Time for the Bidens, Cuomos, and Newsoms to back off!

9/20/2021 3:58 PM

Biden is incompetent

9/20/2021 3:53 PM

MY BODY MY CHOICE RIGHT!?!? BIDEN CAN LEAVE OUR CIVIL LIBERTIES ALONE. COVID IS A JOKE. ITS A PLOY TO CONTROL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE I KNOW 30+ PEOPLE THAT HAVE HAD IT. NO MAJOR ISSUES!!!!!!!!

9/20/2021 2:48 PM

YES, normal will never come back without herd immunity. There is so much mis- and dis-information being maliciously spewed by the rabid right and our enemies (thank you, Russia!) that getting there will never happen if we wait for the the die-hards to die off. Harsh but true in this day an age, where bad information lives forever thanks to social media and the internet and too many so-called "news" outlets who only look to sell their brand at the expense of the pubic health. Frankly it should be the mandate for all business open to the public, regardless of size.

9/20/2021 1:08 PM

Testing shouldn't even be an option. The rest of us want to get back to normal, and we can't do that due to anti-vaxers who get their "scientific" information from social media. They also shouldn't be allowed to collect unemployment or any type of assistance if they lose a job, or can't get a job, because they refuse to vaccinate. You can't get into school or most workplaces without an immunization record showing you aren't putting others at risk!

9/20/2021 12:04 PM

When it is a communicable deadly disease like covid, YES! You don't have the right to say no, anymore than you do to DUI. Seems no one complains about seatbelts. Vax up, mask up. Why isn't Elise Stefanik doing her job of protecting her district? This is a DEADLY, COMMUNICABLE DISEASE! Get your heads out of your southern orifice!

9/20/2021 11:06 AM

Absolutely NOT! Be careful, segregation is coming back folks! Why are we encouraging more division in this nation?

9/20/2021 10:31 AM

I do not support the mandate, but I wish people had enough intelligence to get vaccinated.

9/20/2021 10:27 AM

why 100, I like all

9/20/2021 10:26 AM

Absolutely. If wearing a bit of cloth over my mouth and nose will prevent someone from getting the virus, I am all for it. If it turns out that it does not help, it's a very small convenience. And by the way, wearing a mask DOES prevent spread of the virus when worn properly. Science-proven studies confirm this.

9/20/2021 9:52 AM

Those who refuse to get vaccinated endanger us all; but, on the other hand, Darwin is probably right regarding natural selection.

9/20/2021 8:40 AM

Absolutely! If you are not part of the solution to eradicate COVID, YOU are part of the problem! Stop making this a political issue and get vaccinated!!

9/20/2021 8:10 AM

F joe biden

9/20/2021 7:50 AM

People need to work but they also need to be protected while they work. Laws are already in effect protecting workers and here is another needed one.

9/20/2021 7:03 AM

Those who refuse to get the vaccine are selfish. This pandemic would be over if everyone had gotten vaccinated when they were supposed to.

9/20/2021 6:46 AM

Yes because too many people are wacked! Get the vaccine!!!!

9/20/2021 6:13 AM

Sleepy Joe is not mentally able to mandate anything.Dementia is a terrible disease

9/20/2021 1:45 AM

This pandemic will not go away on it's own. If some people are unwilling to do their part for the health and safety of others, than mandation is necessary for the safety of everyone.

9/19/2021 10:47 PM

Yes, because hearing about constant daily deaths and quarantines is not the norm I want to live in.

9/19/2021 5:28 PM

I did get my 2 shots. I don't need anybody telling me I must get another shot. Somebody is getting filthy rich thru this. Tell ya what, I will get the booster when all the Amish get the shots. The Democrats are taking all the credit for this when in fact it was Trump that started all this. God forbid those idiots give the man any credit. Instead of focusing on all us they should try to figure how to fix that bags of bones we call our President so he at least can remember a few names or properly name the what State he is in.

9/19/2021 3:07 PM

I guess that its time to fire a few employees. I have 106 currently. If I get below 100 I will not need to deal with the Govt BS. I encourage all employers that are just over 100 workers to do the same.

9/19/2021 12:01 PM

SLC is well behind, we have the 2nd lowest vaccination rate in NYS. Those not getting the shot are preventing all of us from getting back to normal via herd immunity. The delta variant is proof of that

9/19/2021 10:35 AM

We all must do our part to stop the spread of Covid-19.

9/19/2021 9:37 AM

No! After all our country was built upon the bedrock of freedom. Besides if we are vaccinated we don't need to worry, right Mr. President?

9/19/2021 8:31 AM

It's very ironic that the same crowd that pretends to care about the unborn doesn't give a damn about infecting their own children, others' children or their community. Great bunch of people.

9/19/2021 7:30 AM

Absolutely YES. It's to keep the public healthy. It's been proven effective and safe. There are always a few with problems but the majority of people will be protected and safe.

9/19/2021 7:25 AM

How about making illegals and anyone on welfare get it first.

9/19/2021 5:58 AM

Get your shots!!! Come on now. Want to be left behind. No then say yes this is the democratic way.

9/18/2021 4:55 PM

No this idiot is the president that should just resign and let’s try to save what’s left of our country.and as far as everyone getting money for your kids every month look in the mirror your parents didn’t use other taxpayers money to raise your lazy butt get a job and work for you get.

9/18/2021 4:21 PM

Vaccines for everybody. This has to stop, and will only stop with a vaccine for all. Just like measles, mumps, polio, get the shot.

9/18/2021 4:08 PM

got to get the stupid vaccinated

9/18/2021 4:06 PM

Any decent company that valued it's employees would already be doing this.

9/18/2021 2:17 PM

No- I am a business owner and currently have all my employment needs filled at 107 employees. I will be reducing the number of employees to 99. The reduction in employees will reduce my ability to produce products, but that is preferable to dealing with this new mandate. I encourage employers near 100 employees to reduce to under 100.

9/18/2021 11:05 AM

More Tyranny from the so called "peoples" party. Goes along well with "free" money and lack of consequences for criminal behavior.

9/18/2021 9:26 AM

If not to protect yourself then to protect others

9/18/2021 8:59 AM

The country as we know is slowly being destroyed.

9/18/2021 8:28 AM

Poor, poor Joe - The man doesn't even remember what he had for breakfast. It's like watching "Weekend at Bernies"

9/18/2021 8:23 AM

Its a horrible idea to drive the medical people out of the state

9/18/2021 8:13 AM

Yes, the government should also mandate brushing your teeth, eating only food that's healthy and getting plenty of exercise. They should completely run your life.

9/18/2021 7:47 AM

What happened to "My Body My Choice" right all you clueless liberals? Have you ever heard of mild cases of Polio, Mumps, Measels, Rubella? No!! I'll take the shot as soon as Biden takes a cognitive test!

9/18/2021 7:14 AM

It is in the interest of public health and getting the economy back!

9/18/2021 7:06 AM

I feel it should be an individuals choice on whether or not they get vaccinated. It is making this a communist country by forcing peoples choices!

9/18/2021 6:41 AM

It's an unconstitutional over reach of power The DoL and OSHA have never had the power to require vaccinations or any other medical procedures If they did, they would have been requiring the Flu vaccination and other for decades It also flies against the science and statistics of the spread Where there has been no significant spread in workplaces It's all been in private close quarters groups gatherings of an hour or more, indoors with little air circulation or filtration

9/18/2021 2:45 AM

Who does he think he is?

9/17/2021 10:57 PM

That man shouldn't clean a closet let alone run the country, Hell NO!!! It should be a person's choice..

9/17/2021 10:28 PM

PEOPLES CHOICE

9/17/2021 9:47 PM

Generally, yes, but with modifications. With the delta variant, all employees should be tested regardless of vaccination status. Employees who have legitimate, valid medical reasons for not being vaccinated should not be penalized though; accommodations should be made for such employees.

9/17/2021 8:56 PM

He just needs to DIE, nice and slow.

9/17/2021 7:32 PM

I am sick and tired of being held hostage by the unvaccinated.If you want to infect your family and friends,you will have to live with it.

9/17/2021 5:20 PM

So much confusion This is terrible

9/17/2021 4:38 PM

Vaccine is an essential piece of moving through this. Disgusted especially with health care workers and teachers that deal with vulnerable populations and wont get vaxxed

9/17/2021 4:34 PM

Wonder how many ppl fighting not to get the vaccine are pro-choice.

9/17/2021 4:20 PM

This dangerous, untested so-called vaccine does NOT protect you, nor anyone else FROM you, since you can still catch AND spread this disease. Unmanipulated numbers from Israel and the UK show 60%-80% of the victims of serious illness and death were the vaccinated!

9/17/2021 4:01 PM

Should only be mandatory for those who work in the medical/healthcare field. Testing for others. If the American population had an ounce of compassion and humanity we would not still be in this stage of the pandemic. It's embarrassing.

9/17/2021 3:45 PM

It's the only way we can rid our self of this pandemic.

9/17/2021 2:01 PM

Getting vaccinated is by far the best way to protect yourself and most people should get it done...however the government swooping in and issuing a mandate and in the process making villains of the unvaccinated who may have questions is ridiculous and most likely illegal. If you have already been vaccinated then the people who have not should be of no concern to you whatsoever, they have made their choice and can deal with whatever consequences come from that

9/17/2021 1:51 PM

Now we just sit back and watch the Trumptards go to town!!!

9/17/2021 1:38 PM

It is tyranny at its finest!

9/17/2021 1:36 PM

Get it if you want, or don't. My body, my choice.

9/17/2021 11:57 AM

Your body your choice!

9/17/2021 11:02 AM

Why get vaccinated if you have already had covid?what are the possible long term effects?

9/17/2021 10:54 AM

stop killing your fellow Americans and get a vaccine. Your grandparents did for polio you can for covid you lazy buffoons.

9/17/2021 9:14 AM

We are being lied to and coerced on a massive scale in so many ways..."One sees many academics and other ‘experts’ claiming in the media that vaccinated people are less likely to transmit Covid than the unvaccinated, or that vaccine immunity is stronger than infection-induced immunity. These claims are almost never referenced and most of those making them are funded by pharmaceutical companies or foundations with vested interests in vaccines. They will not readily admit that the vaccines’ target market is not 100 per cent, because it impacts them financially. Next time your company or government tells you that you need to get vaccinated so that you don’t infect those around you, ask them what science they rely on to make that statement. Companies all over the world are setting themselves up for massive liability claims by forcing their workers to get vaccinated without having any scientific evidence for the benefit they claim exists."

9/17/2021 9:04 AM

My Body My Choice!

9/17/2021 8:47 AM

This is control not healthcare. People should make the choice that’s best for them.

9/17/2021 8:44 AM

Why single out working people? He could have mandated illegals and people receiving Medicaid benefits, That's about 100 million more people.

9/17/2021 8:02 AM

It is the only way we can get out of this. Covid has killed too may people and disrupted lives everywhere. We need to stop it in its tracks NOW.

9/17/2021 7:45 AM

"My body, my pink slip."

9/17/2021 6:51 AM

A very good local man died recently because of the lack of vaccinations, his younger loved ones got sick with Covid and gave it to him, none believed in vaccinations, how about now?

9/17/2021 6:49 AM

No I do not, my body my choice. It is a violation of my free liberty of choice. There have not been nearly enough time for proper studies. Starting to sound a lot like Nazi Germany!! Where are your papers?

9/17/2021 6:03 AM

If the “children” don’t have the intelligence todo what is right then the parents need to give directions. There are a lot of spoiled kids that were not educated correctly.

9/16/2021 10:27 PM

We need EVERYONE eligible to get vaccinated so this pandemic will end and we can get on with our lives and so we can protect the people who can’t get vaccinated. As far as religious beliefs those people should believe the Christian way should be to protect others and if they claim it’s because of their beliefs they should have to prove they are practicing their religion

9/16/2021 7:10 PM

Vaccination is one of the key ways out of this. Do we want schools open? Hospitals not overloaded? To be able to travel again? If you aren't vaxxed yet please talk to your doctor, please think about those who can't be vaccinated yet, please think about your neighbors grandmother battling cancer, or the ten year old down the street with an autoimmune disease. Lets get this done!

9/16/2021 5:47 PM

Too many Covidiots in St. Law county! We can't expect commonsense to guide them.

9/16/2021 4:50 PM

I personally only care to interact with vaccinated people, or those with a true medical reason to not be. Anyone else simply does not care about their neighbor. Not being vaccinated is unchristian and not religious. If you aren’t vaccinated and get sick, stay home, don’t get hospital care and best of luck. Don’t make anyone else care for you when you can’t do the basic to help others.

9/16/2021 4:37 PM

I am vaccinated. I have been vaccinated for measles,whopping cough, , polio and all the others mandated to attend school . why all the contraversy? I would like to live freely again without the fear of more variances being caused by the .unvaccinaed

9/16/2021 3:57 PM

Yes, as long as there is a choice of vaccine or weekly testing. Just want to make sure people are either protected, or be able to identify those infected so we can stop the spread. The bigger survey question is “what percentage of comments are going to be hostile and lumpish?”

9/16/2021 3:34 PM

Can't wait for commentary from the armchair physicians who had to repeat HS Biology three times on this one...

9/16/2021 3:27 PM

Absolutely, yes. I support a mandate to be vaccinated or tested weekly. If you for some reason don't want to be vaccinated, the **least** you can do is get tested on a regular basis.

9/16/2021 3:27 PM

Hundreds of thousands of illegals are coming thru the open southern border and they're not required to get vaccinated! But American citizens are being forced into vaccines? Absolutely not right on any level!

9/16/2021 3:20 PM

At a time where we are short workers and especially healthcare workers why do we want to limit who can work? This is completely asinine!

9/16/2021 3:14 PM

Trump would never pull this,

9/16/2021 2:59 PM

I don't support this President's policies and/or plans on COVID 19

9/16/2021 1:00 PM

Absolutely. Misinformation has led a lot of people to not get the shot. Listen to the CDC which is the only informed agency that knows what is going on. The vaccine has been in the works for over 15 years and there are no documented bad side effects. Believe what you see and not what you hear from uneducated sources. It is the only way to beat the disease.

9/16/2021 12:47 PM

Definitely

9/16/2021 11:18 AM

You should not mandate things about someone else's body.

9/16/2021 10:57 AM

We are going through the same things that happened with the 1918 flu outbreak. This virus isn't going to be stopped when too many people feel it is their right to spread it by not wearing a mask and getting vacinated.

9/16/2021 10:27 AM

This is about profit, not health.

9/16/2021 9:42 AM

Biden is a puppet... He needs to go back to his bunker.... worthless person he is...

9/16/2021 9:41 AM

This is is an epidemic something has to be done to stop it. Inaction does not work and hiding from the facts don't help either. How many of these people that oppose this vaccine have had all their vaccinations from childhood.

9/16/2021 9:27 AM

This is a no- brainer !!!!!!

9/16/2021 9:10 AM

I'm vaccinated but support the rights of individuals. President is a fool and a idiot. Overreach is kind

9/16/2021 9:07 AM

Some info you aren't being told about the "vaccines" - What the shots contain is Covid-19(Sars-CoV-2) itself. Fauci's injections are non-human/synthetic mRNA that hijack a person's cells to create the pathogenic S1 Spike Protein. The anti-bodies that a person's immune system creates (in the blood) to neutralize and 'mop up' the S1 Spike Protein start to wane after 6 to 8 months. However, the cells of a person's body that are hijacked to create the S1 Spike Protein continue to create/express the S1 Spike Protein indefinitely (or at least for an unknown period of time). Now after the 6 to 8 month time frame elapses, the relevant antibodies in the bloodstream will decrease, and the spike protein, which was previously held in check, will run rampant, moving from the blood into the mucosa of the respiratory system. This is when the 'vaccine' injected person 'gets Covid' (even if they haven't been exposed to anybody with Covid), because the source of the Covid-19 (Sar-CoV-2) inside of their bodies WAS THE FAUCI INJECTION ITSELF that was injected into them 6 to 8 months prior. The lie that people are told is that the injected mRNA only creates the S-1 Spike Protein for 2 weeks, but this is NOT TRUE. After a person is injected, the S1 Spike Protein (as measured in the blood) decreases after 2 weeks because the antibodies created by the immune system neutralize and 'mop up' the spike protein (in the blood) after about 2 weeks, but this DOES NOT mean that the S1 Spike Protein stops being created/expressed on the surface of the hijacked cells after 2 weeks. Remember, the hijacked cells continue to create/express the pathogenic S1 Spike Protein INDEFINITELY. Also, since the injected non-human/synthetic mRNA is protected by lipid nanoparticles, the precursor of the disease always stays well preserved in the human body, making it difficult to eliminate, so that those who were injected can never be free of the disease. Not to mention graphene oxide(Hydrogel), 5G, DARPA experimentation, 'Great Reset', "Mark of the Beast system".

9/16/2021 9:03 AM

NO,NO,NO!!!!!!!!!!!! WAKE UP PEOPLE! IT'S THE VACCINATED THAT ARE SPREADING THE VARIENTS! WHAT ABOUT NATURAL IMMUNITY? 9/16/2021 8:51 AM

HELL, NO!

9/16/2021 8:46 AM

He is the worst President ever!!!!

9/16/2021 8:38 AM

Get your vaccine. They are safe, they have been researched extensively and given to millions with minimal side effects. If you believe otherwise you are a victim of propaganda.

9/16/2021 8:35 AM

Again...they are taking away the individuals rights!

9/16/2021 8:26 AM

People who elect to not get vaccinated should also then decline medical assistance if they fall ill. Why trust these professionals when they don't trust science?

9/16/2021 8:24 AM

It is unconstitutional and extreme government overreach.

9/16/2021 8:15 AM

Guess here in the North Country people don't give a chit about their families and friends can't say loved ones because they would have gotten the vaccine if they had loved ones!!! Up here thou they believe the Liars which would be the Republican party. This North Country is a disgrace . Ashamed to tell anyone I live up here!!! Keep believing the liars !!! Wait till you lose a family member . Hope the guilt eats you alive!!!

9/16/2021 7:58 AM

It is ridiculous that this pandemic and the means to end or control it have become political. Scientists have worked and developed vaccines for decades. Thank God for that! They have successfully wiped out or mitigated smallpox, polio, measles, etc… All vaccines that are mandates for school attendance etc… I’m amazed at all the people that seem to think they have the knowledge of the research scientists and medical doctors. And I’m tired as so many people talking about their constitutional rights and freedom! Most of those people would probably fail a test based strictly on the US Constitution. I thought we learned that “your rights end where my nose begins”. Since the nose is where the most virus lies, how about getting the vaccine and I wouldn’t be kind and have mouth swabs for saliva, I would require them to have nasal swabs! As for the religious exemptions I’m sure a lot more people will be “ finding God”. You not wearing a seatbelt which is required by law doesn’t hurt me one bit, you not being vaccinated may.

9/16/2021 7:48 AM

Get it to the Supreme Court ASAP...

9/16/2021 7:46 AM

Anything to halt the virus!!!

9/16/2021 7:40 AM

It should be personal choice ! Not political garbage !!

9/16/2021 7:39 AM

The government has no business mandating what private business does/does not do. They also do not fund this mandate, so that adds to the wrong of it.

9/16/2021 7:38 AM

Joe Biden a 50 year employee of government. He knows many things.

9/16/2021 7:35 AM

From 15 days to flatten the curve to mandated injections , I did NATZI that coming!

9/16/2021 7:04 AM

Government over stepping its authority yet again!!

9/16/2021 7:02 AM

I wouldn't support anything he did.

9/16/2021 6:55 AM

I personally would like it mandated thay all unvaccinated people be tested weekly. I know someone that was exposed to COVID-19, told a friend, but not his family members,. A couple of those family members have small children that can't get vaccinated. He will NOT WEAR A MASK! These are the people that need to be tested weekly! If stupid people don't want to be vaccinated, then WEAR YOUR MASK, STAY 6 FEET AWAY FROM ME! You are the reason that COVID-19 is SPREADING the way it is. You should be charged with manslaughter. Because you are exposing people with COVID-19 by NOT WEARING A MASK or WEARING A MASK CORRECTLY! A mask HAS TO COVER YOUR MOUTH & NOSE!!!!!!!!!

9/16/2021 6:52 AM

Look at the numbers of rising cases among the unvaccinated people on the county.

9/16/2021 6:22 AM

Just one more step in governmental control of our lives-socialism!

9/16/2021 6:14 AM

The only way to get rid of the virus is with vaccinations. Everyone is required to be vaccinated against the measles, why is this any different?

9/16/2021 6:11 AM

Get vaccinated. Quit falling for conspiracy theories. Remember that these measures aren't just for your safety but for the safety of others.

9/16/2021 6:11 AM

Personal rights are off from the table during times of crisis. A global pandemic should certainly fit that bill. This is about what is in the safety and best interests of the majority, not just some.

9/16/2021 5:45 AM

get government out of healthcare.

9/15/2021 11:35 PM

Not the governments job to monitor our health, it is Our job thankyou!

9/15/2021 11:07 PM

The Presidents repeatedly ignoring the division of power is grounds for impeachment. The President does not write the law, that is the job of the legislative branch.

9/15/2021 10:03 PM

Lets see I have 150 employees, I guess 51 will have to go, way to go joe, you schmuck, more people out of work. Hey, lets not forget the new gov ho chill with her mandate that will decimate the hospitals and health care centers personnel, thus over burdening the already burnt out staff. Yeah, the result, more people will die due to lack of adequate care. Man, you can't make this stuff up. Why people keep voting in these demoncrat libtards is beyond me.

9/15/2021 9:44 PM

vaccines have been required by schools, the military, and for overseas trips. What is the problem, too many people seeing red and not common sense.

9/15/2021 8:15 PM

F Joe Biden ,,,,, F Joe Biden

9/15/2021 8:07 PM

apparently women should be allowed to have choice about their bodies r/t abortion but no one should have the say about whether they get vaccinated. I believe it should be up to the person and their physician . I did get vaccinated but it was my choice !

9/15/2021 8:03 PM

would you call it dictatorship freedom of choice

9/15/2021 7:25 PM

Force everyone to get one. Prior to bootcamp, soldiers have to take 9 vaccinations. Is the US Army unAmerican? Grow up people. Get the vaccine. Stop listening to the fear mongers and charlatan talking heads. Just get the vaccine and be done with it.

9/15/2021 7:14 PM

I do believe that ALL healthcare workers should be vaccinated. Grow up! You're caring for people who could be immune compromised. Even if the patient had the vaccine, what gives a healthcare worker the right to care for that oatient? What if right now, the patient is younger than 12 years old? They aren't vaccinated! Didn't you doctors and nurses take some sort of an oath? I also find it funny that all of a sudden these "anti vaxxers" have suddenly become SO religious, and now want a religious exemption. I doubt many of them have ever set foot in a house of worship.

9/15/2021 6:38 PM

Mandate is not what the US is about.

9/15/2021 6:28 PM

A person 'may' have the right to refuse a vaccine - but that person does NOT have the right to expose any other person to a deadly disease.

9/15/2021 6:18 PM

People who choose not to get vaccinated. Should not get hospital beds and can die in the parking lot. Workers who refuse to get vaccine can get sick and die in the parking lot.

9/15/2021 6:16 PM

Those who refuse the shot should have to sign a waiver of hospital care if they contract Covid-19, and further should be liable for any sickness or deaths traceable to their refusal of immunization.

9/15/2021 5:53 PM

Displays the Democrat desire to strip any and all freedom.

9/15/2021 5:15 PM

Should be up to the person not the frail president!!

9/15/2021 5:13 PM

it should be my choice

9/15/2021 5:00 PM

The amount of employees should be lower. Give the businesses a tax incentive for following the President's direction.

9/15/2021 4:54 PM

How do we expect to move forward without some kind of plan. It is terrible it had to come to this. Someone has to take the bull by the horns. I work in healthcare and so many of us are sooooo tired of the excuses.

9/15/2021 4:42 PM

F no. Afganistan was the absolute last straw I will not ever support anything that yellow-bellied imbecile proposes after he left 19 million Afgani women to be systematically raped and forced to marry as Tailban war brides. Biden disgusts me. And he should disgust everyone else too. If you support this braying butt then you are complicit in religious zealotry driven violence.

9/15/2021 4:20 PM

Vaccines aren't the whole story, I believe a mask mandate would be less infringement on bodily freedom and more immediately effective

9/15/2021 4:16 PM

President Biden is incapable of making any mandate. The mandate is unconstitutional. I do not support anything Biden proposes.

9/15/2021 4:15 PM

F46

9/15/2021 3:56 PM

Get the vaccine. Wear the mask. It's a No Brainer!!

9/15/2021 2:51 PM

Yes, people need to be more community minded and think of our country's safety. Imagine people were this selfish during the polio outbreak.

9/15/2021 2:34 PM

NO !...Falls into the same category as the Your Body Your Choice movement ., If the Govt forces one thing upon you or tells you what you can or cannot do for your own body . Just what will the next Mandate be..?

9/15/2021 2:02 PM

what country is this ?

9/15/2021 1:55 PM

The only way to make this go away is for people to get vaccinated so the virus will stop mutating. This shouldn’t be a political issue. Just do the right thing people.

9/15/2021 1:27 PM

People that have the shots are still getting covid. If you can get it, you can give it. Just because I have the vaccine I can be asymptomatic and pass it. Funny thing where I work a vaccinated employee got it and another vaccinated employee caught it but the one that wasn't vaccinated didn't get it. People wake up! We don't have answers yet but the big pharma companies are LOVING this! It's money promised by the politicians not in your best interest. Stop the insanity!

9/15/2021 1:25 PM

Stop being morons & get the shot.

9/15/2021 1:06 PM

https://youtu.be/PNSSyTbDCYI Time to grow up people. 1 out of every 500 in US is dead from Covid. Your rights end at the tip of your noses.

9/15/2021 12:31 PM

Businesses already don't have enough people to work because of the extra UI that has been going on for the last year or more and now top that with this mandate, a lot of people will quit their jobs over it!

9/15/2021 12:31 PM

This is a violation of people's right to choose. It's ok to abort babies claiming "My body, my choice" which is the killing of innocents. But you don't have a right to choose rather or not to take a so called vaccine that has caused the most deaths and reactions in all of history. The vaccine doesn't work obviously...look at all the cases on the college campuses here....they were vaccinated to attend classes. We are all being lied to about covid and everything related to it. The vaccine is the bioweapon. The pandemic was used to get you to get the death jab. Look up antibody dependent enhancement....the jab is designed to destroy your immune system....just wait till the flu season starts and see what happens....deaths will be off the charts!

9/15/2021 12:20 PM

If the local health care workers aren't vaccined I am not going to use the hospital or any of health care service in st law co

9/15/2021 12:09 PM

Yes i do. Vaccines have been mandated for schools for years. The people in this county telling people to go back to work, than take the damn vaccine so work enviroment is safe you anti vaxers, Trumpettes. Believing they are the only one with rights. Only 51 percent of this county vaccinated, WTF is wrong with people in this redneck county?

9/15/2021 11:58 AM

To anyone who uses "but my religion says I cannot get a vaccine" as an excuse should demonstrate that a) you've never touched alcohol other than communion, b) never consumed any drugs, c) never had pre-martial sex, and on and on and on. Otherwise, you are abusing your religious freedom to serve your own selfish need. Finally, your religion does explicitly state that you should be moral and good to others, taking the vaccine is just that. But, we are a society of liars and hypocrites, so this poll will be filled with droves of ignorant drivel.

9/15/2021 11:19 AM

Yes, yes, yes, YES!!

9/15/2021 11:16 AM

It's unconstitutional!

9/15/2021 11:04 AM

No, he has no right to mandate people who do not wish to take the vaccine, since it is a personal choice. The vaccine does nothing to stop people from getting Covid anyway. Also discriminating against people who personally choose not to get the vaccine will end very badly for him and his "woke" supporters.

9/15/2021 11:03 AM

I would not support anything this traitor does. Biden is not fit to be in office and should be removed if only because of his actions in Afghanistan

9/15/2021 10:42 AM

The only path back to marmalade is by getting everyone vaccinated. People need to stop being so stupid and selfish and go get the shot.

9/15/2021 10:17 AM

This President is so hypocritical. He fully (and foolishly) supports abortion with the ridiculous argument that it is a woman's right to choose who lives and dies, but apparently Government knows best when it comes to injecting unproven vaccines into your body. You can't have it both ways.

9/15/2021 10:00 AM

I support nothing this idiot does. He is incompetent and a pawn for the Democrats. A year ago to the day this man and many of his cohorts declared they would not take the vaccine, it fit their political narrative at the time.

9/15/2021 9:48 AM

Yes. Even if you are a moron and don't want to protect yourself, get vaccinated to help protect everyone else.

9/15/2021 9:47 AM

This level of government over reach is horrendous. If this mandate is allowed to continue, the government will have complete control over our bodies.

9/15/2021 9:43 AM

People do your part Get Vaccinated. Stop thinking about your selfishness. It is not about Politics save that for when you go to the polls. Listen to the experts and the care works that are stressed out from be needlessly dying. Your are stopping the business from being open and the children from going to school. Be a Hero Not a Zero Do your part!! Get Vaccinated

9/15/2021 9:18 AM

WWJD - wear a mask and get vaccinated. This isn't about you it's about treating others how YOU would want to be treated. The most CHRISTIAN thing we can do at this time is think of others and put OTHERS first. Right now this means wearing masks while indoors or in crowded outdoor spaces and getting vaccinated to lessen the ability for the virus to mutate, therefore continuing to spread. GOD put people on this planet to be scientists and to create these vaccines so that we could be good Christians and accept them.

9/15/2021 8:28 AM

If people don't get the vaccine & then get the virus. They should have to pay for their healthcare.

9/15/2021 8:24 AM

YES,120%

9/15/2021 8:23 AM

Unfortunately, too many people will not listen to science.

9/15/2021 8:21 AM

For goodness sake! Get the shots and save a life. People with ulterior motives started this nonsense and are leading poor dupes to disease and death. Ever hear of leper’s colonies?

9/15/2021 8:21 AM

Yes. Vaccine requirements are nothing new! Most people who attended school or travel for work or pleasure have been required to get vaccinations for years. Stop killing your Neighbors and get the shot!

9/15/2021 7:49 AM

I do not support Joe Biden on most of his idiotic policies, but I do support him on this. As long as, it is of no cost to the employers OR the employees, all should be vaccinated. I have been vaccinated and I think everyone should be. We need to get ahead of this thing.

9/15/2021 7:38 AM

People should respect other people and if they are going to be out in public get the vaccine.

9/15/2021 7:18 AM

Should be your choice as it is with all vaccinations.

9/15/2021 7:00 AM

Absolutely NOT! It's unconstitutional, he has NO authority to do this at all. Case law says the States may have this right, but the Federal gov't does not. This doesn't even touch on the fact that he said he wouldn't ever do this, that Pelosi said they don't have that power or that he has exempted Congress from this mandate. The drooling fool is a tyrant and complete disaster, a hair sniffing pervert and he abandoned hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghans to be raped, tortured, enslaved and murdered in Afghanistan. He left $80 billion in advanced weaponry for terrorists, coerced the President of Afghanistan to lie and deserves impeachment and prison.

9/15/2021 6:45 AM

this so called President and his administration are destroying America turning to dictatorship to force people to do what they say wake up Americans

9/15/2021 6:43 AM

My body,My rules only matters when they are killing babies apparently.

9/15/2021 6:26 AM

he's an absolute idiot! Close the southern border! Get our people out of Afghanistan! Start there

9/15/2021 6:02 AM

Test the people not vaccinated, every time a unvaccinated person says "vaccinated people are the cause of the spread" they get it from the unvaccinated. And if they work make them use their own time, handouts need to stop . This country is the handout country like the one across the border seems like all they want to do is put it to the working class . WTFU people worry about s*** that matters instead of all these new gadgets to take your mind of the real issues.

9/15/2021 5:33 AM

I support the plan, we are all in this country together we all need to do our part to control this virus together. Put you big boy/ girl pants on and step up and do your part for the good of this country! We are supposed to be world leaders lets start acting like it and not a bunch of cry babies. I say if you don't want to live and abide by our rules you are free to leave. God Bless America.

9/15/2021 5:26 AM

"My body, my choice", isn't that right "lefties" ? You can't cherry pick what cause it applies to.

9/15/2021 5:22 AM

Biden is an IDIOT.

9/15/2021 4:19 AM

Getting the vaccine should be every individual's choice. But, with freedom comes responsibility. You can choose not to get a driver's license, but then you are not allowed to drive. If you refuse the vaccine, then your unvaccinated kids should not be allowed to attend public school, you should not be allowed to board an airplane or cruise ship, or go into any indoor public space, and no going inside the grocery store or to any indoor dining establishment or theater. You should not be allowed near coworkers, unless they all agree to not be vaccinated. If you work in a public facing or public service job, well that's a problem. Since you don't believe in the vaccine, then you must not believe in the medical profession, so you might as well forget about going to the hospital for treatment for anything-they have nothing to offer you. Stay at home and treat yourself since you know better-be free. You are worried about your rights, yet by not getting the vaccine, you are trampling the rights of everyone around you. That's a mighty Christian attitude to have-NOT. This fourth or whatever wave it is is the fault of the unvaccinated. You might as well move to Texas or Florida with more like-minded folks. We will draw the new border at a later date.

9/14/2021 11:34 PM

what a dolt

9/14/2021 11:30 PM

What has lapdog Stefanik done our 21 district other collect her pay...

9/14/2021 11:17 PM

hell no-what happened to your body, your choices??? what's next? diets? drinking or smoking? what happened to our freedoms? vaccine does not prevent spread, just symptoms-let them die if they wish

9/14/2021 10:45 PM

he is a worthless pos he is destroying this country along with some other demoncrapts

9/14/2021 9:26 PM

Absolutely

9/14/2021 9:06 PM

if someone has a better way to end the pandemic lets hear it. decisions to save children and others are priority. Being selfish it not an option.

9/14/2021 7:42 PM

He need to unlock down in his cellar, & give his kickback from drug companies to people to get back to work

9/14/2021 7:11 PM

even Biden didn't want anything to do with mandates until his debacle in Afghanistan. More smoke & mirrors

9/14/2021 6:57 PM

It's a no brainer. Get the shots. Save the world.

9/14/2021 6:17 PM

People are being mislead by the lies of tight-wing media! The vaccines are very safe and effective! We need to get more people vaccinated to reach Herd Immunity, otherwise the virus will continue to mutate into more serious variants. The only reason we are seeing breakthrough cases is because of the Delta variant—Not the original version of Covid-19. So get vaccinated so we can put this behind us!

9/14/2021 6:16 PM

You have to be a real jerk if you don't get the vaccine. Your are putting your friends, family and community at risk...as well as yourself. Pick some other issue to throw your perceived power at.

9/14/2021 5:55 PM

We have a number of mandatory vaccines now which have controlled other diseases. The same must be done with COVID due the number of people who are refusing the vaccine for stupid reasons.

9/14/2021 5:37 PM

The experimental shot is NOT FDA approved. They are referring to the new one that hasn't even been released yet. All shots are emergency use only. There is No Emergency! There are alternative medicines that work.. this shot does not.. The old are dying, but that's nothing new.. the numbers are being padded or lessened to hype the fear.. The variants being spread are coming DIRECTLY from the VACCINATED! Thats why children are now getting sick. People should research before becoming a lab rat. Studies will not be complete until 2023. You People pushing this agenda need to stay in your own lanes! No one should have to play Russian roulette with their life in order to keep a job! This is against the Constitution as well as the Nuremberg Code. You can't coerse people or blackmail them to do it! I can't wait for the lawsuits against all these business for mandating it and for firing their employees over it. Basement Biden is crossing the line. He thinks his patience is wearing down? You haven't seen anything yet. We have absolutely had it. This theif in command screwed up Afghanistan and has blood all over him. He cares nothing about the American people. He has an agenda and if you can't see it you aren't just a sheep, you are BLIND and clueless sheep! By the way, if you actually did vote for Biden, YOU OWE ME GAS MONEY!

9/14/2021 5:35 PM

According to the Supreme Court decision of 1905 in Jacobson vs. Massachusetts, The States can issue such a mandate but not the Federal Government.

9/14/2021 5:10 PM

absolutely ridiculous!

9/14/2021 5:02 PM

Biden said he didn’t trust the shot when Trump was in so why now.He can’t even talk a whole sentence what a JOKE for our country

9/14/2021 4:59 PM

No because people should be tested for natural immunity as part of this plan.

9/14/2021 4:57 PM

Get a shot!

9/14/2021 4:47 PM

He has no business mandating anything other than a mental test for himself.

9/14/2021 4:34 PM

The vaccines are safe and effective.Don't listen to the Conspiracy Theorist Lies. We have to reach Herd Immunity or this virus will continue to mutate.

9/14/2021 4:27 PM

Part of being a socialist country is to have dependence on the government for all your needs. Less working people mean you have more control. Pretty soon the working people lose their incentive to work and no one but the government wins. My body my choice is the rallying cry from the Dems until it isn't. The covid vaccine does not stop you for getting the disease or stop you from spreading it. And yes, I have gotten the vaccine but I still believe this should be a personal choice.

9/14/2021 4:23 PM

I believe if you can wear a seatbelt drive a car drink a beer smoke a cig say the F word you can get a vax stay healthy protect yourself family others I did... and I have MANY Health Issues listen to the science...

9/14/2021 4:18 PM

The only person who has a say over my body, medically or otherwise, is me. I care for others by wearing a mask, social distancing, and practicing basic hygiene. Those choosing not to get vaccinated are not going around licking people or coughing in their faces - stop acting like they are the enemy! A forced jab clears the path for other mandates... ones that not even those that were so willingly jabbed would be so agreeable to.

9/14/2021 4:12 PM

Someone had to take a stand. Way to go, Joe.

9/14/2021 3:41 PM

We have many other required vaccines. Public health takes precedence over political ideology

9/14/2021 3:32 PM

Any person who votes no is selfish. People are dying because un-vaccinated individuals are taking up precious ICU beds. What possesses any sane human to endanger the lives of others is beyond comprehension. Every un-vaccinated person should be held accountable for what they have done. If you are un-vaccinated, then you should be financially responsible to anyone who you affect. Their actions have cost billions, and placed numerous lives on the line. The responses to this poll will be filled with the typical ignorant nonsense that seems to be part and parcel of North Country. This pandemic will never end because of the un-vaccinated.

9/14/2021 3:24 PM

I refuse to call that man President he’s a failure!! Not until he mandates vaccinations for every illegal immigrant he’s allowed into this country!!! Many health care workers caught COVID during the height of the pandemic and now have natural immunity.Now their being forced to get vaccinated or be fired.JOE you need to GO!!!!!!

9/14/2021 3:23 PM

hes a idiot

9/14/2021 3:21 PM

We prayed so hard for this vaccine. Now fake Christians, servants of the Devil, want to turn down this gift from God. Darwin knows his own, to be sure.

9/14/2021 2:25 PM

So either get the vaccine or get tested. Those who choose to not get vaccinated should at least do what they can to protect others. I had the shots, will be having the booster, and I’m now back to wearing a mask because of the increasing spread and variants. People need to take this more seriously. Do they have to watch a loved one suffer or worse. Your actions, your consequences.

9/14/2021 2:15 PM

All citizens should be vaccinated! That is the only way we are going to beat this epidemic. Some people are making this political and it should be about everyone surviving. Setup a building for those who come down with Covid so they have a place to wait until its their turn to be incubated in the hospital if there are beds available.

9/14/2021 1:53 PM

Everyone should be vaccinated. It's for the public good. We are all required to get vaccinations throughout our lives right from infancy. Those who protest are ignorant and self-centered not to mention selfish and dangerous.

9/14/2021 1:36 PM

This vaccine is just like the Flu, but not anywhere as good as the flu shot, it is, and should be a personal choice. Biden is more and more like Hitler!

9/14/2021 1:34 PM

Vaccination is our only way out of this should be mandatory for everyone no excuses especially religious nonsense

9/14/2021 1:27 PM

Do you people proof read what you put on here?

9/14/2021 12:19 PM

its unethical

9/14/2021 12:17 PM

Until the southern border is closed to the undocumented or a vaccine is pumped into every shoulder that passes across the border and vaccines are given to every afganni that came here because of the failed pull out , there should not be any mandates what so ever to the american people that have resided here for many months to years . you can not have open borders and mandates on your residents .

9/14/2021 12:15 PM

Not until he makes all of America or foreign people do it which includes ..undocumented at southern border..All for 1 and 1 for ALL

9/14/2021 12:14 PM

yes their are way to many morons still swallowing all that bullcrap coming out of Mar a Largo, these hospitals are putting their lifes on the line to save these idiots because to hospitals cant't legally turn them away what a pitty and tell them to call Trump 1 800 who gives a crap

9/14/2021 12:11 PM

A big Fat HELL NO! You CANNOT mandate a shot that is Emergency Use, especially when there are other treatments, let alone people’s own immunity. The media and SockPuppet Joe lied and said Pfizer got approval, but it did not for the current one..only for the one they haven't even rolled out yet. It is NOT safe. NO ONE should be forced to get this in order to keep their job!! Especially when they say that it needs to be done to make the 'vaccinated' feel better. TOUGH LUCK. You don't get to tell any of us what to do!! I will take my chances with my own immunity and GOD. There are aborted baby cells in these mixtures!! I support EVERY SINGLE PROTEST and EVERY SINGLE LAWSUIT coming! Who do you people think you are? You are guinea pigs in a lab experiment! The VACCINATED ARE SPREADING COVID and the DELTA variant. It's coming from THEM after they get their "ouchies". Why isn't someone protecting the unvaccinated FROM the vaccinated? They are killing people!! But we are the ones getting death threats! Now they want to roll out a shot for children? Test subject children are now blind and deaf from them, if they survived the trials! Your own stupidity will kill some of you eventually, but if you are STUPID enough to make an innocent child get it when they don’t get a say, you deserve whatever happens after that. Wake up SHEEP! The LIONS will be the only ones left standing!

9/14/2021 12:04 PM

Somebody has to protect his people that won't get vaccinated from themselves. I wish the mandate had been made a long time ago.

9/14/2021 12:04 PM

It's okay to be pro vaccine but anti mandate.

9/14/2021 12:03 PM

No mandatory vaccines. Screw Joe Biden.

9/14/2021 11:44 AM

No matter what your health is, it's always safer to get the vaccine than to get COVID.

9/14/2021 11:39 AM

We support this 100%. 92% of the current cases of Covid are occurring in unvaccinated population. Politics be damned. It is time to take aggressive steps to overcome the ignorance. If someone choses not to get vaccinated, that is their choice. However that decision made, we should no longer sacrifice for them. Shut them out and shut them down.

9/14/2021 11:35 AM

I think that it should mandatory for everyone,lets get rid of covid.

9/14/2021 11:35 AM

Forcing people to get a vaccination is heading the USA down a path which will erode all our constitutional rights, beware !

9/14/2021 11:28 AM

Something needs to be done so this virus will be halted. So many people do not want to wear masks...it is such an easy task. I'm vaccinated and still wear my mask when out and about. I would prefer not to wear it but I feel it is my duty to do so. People need to wake up.

9/14/2021 10:55 AM

The vaccine is as evil as the corona virus. Every day it is being proven over and over again that it doesn't work ! The vaccines are doing more harm than good. There are treatments available now . The virus was custom made for population control and the vaccines are validating that. Don't take the jab !!

9/14/2021 10:51 AM

everyone should be vaccinated to end covid

9/14/2021 10:17 AM

Yes!! There are too many stupids out there!

9/14/2021 9:59 AM
