  1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision.

  2. 1% death rate pandemic requires mass vaccination of an experimental and unapproved gene therapy? Only history will tell this is a mistake.

  3. A  study yesterday details breakthrough COVID-19 infections in 39 of 1,497 fully vaccinated Israeli healthcare workers, with most cases mild or moderate but 19% with symptoms lingering for more than 6 weeks.

  4. Mr Pres HOW ABOUT THAT VITAMIN D OFFICIAL TRIAL LAST MARCH ? NO SIDE EFFECTS STOPS SEVERE SYMPTOMS………. ARE U BANNING SUGAR WHICH IS MORE HARMFUL ?

  5. Where is the discussion? A day of pay for a life of immune issues. This sounds more like paying corporations to initiate mandates. Thus bypassing democratic processes. Welcome to klaus schwabs wet dream.

  6. Watch out, this is actually happening here in Florida….. Teachers who choose not to be vaccinated apparently must quarantine on their own dime if they come in contact with a student who is positive. The teacher will be responsible and will not get paid, while if you have a vaccine and end up getting sick does that open the door to sue the school board for medical negligence or workplace health issues? Hhhmmmm, they can't have it just one way.

  7. The armed forces will valiantly renounce this mandate. They would have to send about 3 thirds to Court Marshall and I can't wait for the revolution

  8. I officially do not believe a word from our government, media, science, and the medical community….all friggin political LIARS

  9. The people don't trust the government anymore because one day they say mask up the next day they will say pandemic is over mix messages don't work

  10. People don't want to get vaccinated because they they will be the Guinea pigs to test the non FDA approved medicine.

  11. Beacause all the vaccine he bought is about to expire. Dumbasses shouldn’t have tried to think for us 🤔😷

  12. If the vaccines are ineffective why the big push, First the unvaccinated, Now it’s the vaccinated people’s fault, HOW are unvaccinated People spreading a Virus they do not have, I haven’t had the Covid, nor ever took off my mask in public! How can I be spreading it! Spreading what? Yes I thought so!

  14. It is less stressful to have your mind made up for you. Free thinking is bad. Trust and follow the science.

  15. We're still seeing vaccinated people get covid at our hospital. 6 months ago we were all heroes for showing up to work with no vaccination and a mask shortage. Now we're unemployed for not taking an experimental vaccine that doesn't work.

  16. Some stores, restaurants and colleges are not letting people enter without proof of the vaccine. Some corporations are mandating employees get vaccinated or lose their job. Is this the beginning to the end unless you take the mark?

  17. Paid leave…woop dee doo! Democrats always wanting to give things away that always cost everyone else something!
