  1. Why would you take an experimental vaccine, that had rushed approval, (not the typical standard with “safe studies”), for a virus with over a 99% survival rate?

    Especially when before the election all the Democrat Leaders were against the vaccine because it was happening under Trump’s watch, and now that the election is over they are for it…. IT’S THE SAME VACCINE….

    It’s Bad… NO .. NO… It’s good…

    Watch some old videos (pre 1995) of Bill Gates, and tell me you trust his medical advice, spoiler… He’s NOT a Doctor
