Reason magazine’s Liz Wolfe lays out new developments with Washington, D.C. public schools’ vaccine mandate.
According to the CDC all COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States are effective at preventing COVID-19. Getting sick with COVID-19 can offer some protection from future illness, sometimes called “natural immunity,” but the level of protection people get from having COVID-19 may vary depending on how mild or severe their illness was, the time since their infection, and their age.
Getting a COVID-19 vaccination is also a safer way to build protection than getting sick with COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccination helps protect you by creating an antibody response without you having to experience sickness. Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Getting sick with COVID-19 can cause severe illness or death, and we can’t reliably predict who will have mild or severe illness. If you get sick, you can spread COVID-19 to others. You can also continue to have long-term health issues after COVID-19 infection.
While COVID-19 vaccines are effective, studies have shown some declines in vaccine effectiveness against infections over time, especially when the Delta variant was circulating widely.
The mRNA vaccines do not contain any live virus. Instead, they work by teaching our cells to make a harmless piece of a “spike protein,” which is found on the surface of the virus that causes COVID-19. After making the protein piece, cells display it on their surface. Our immune system then recognizes that it does not belong there and responds to get rid of it. When an immune response begins, antibodies are produced, creating the same response that happens in a natural infection.
In contrast to mRNA vaccines, many other vaccines use a piece of, or weakened version of, the germ that the vaccine protects against. This is how the measles and flu vaccines work. When a weakened or small part of the virus is introduced to your body, you make antibodies to help protect against future infection.
Everyone ages 18 and older should get a booster shot either 6 months after their initial Pfizer or Moderna series, or 2 months after their initial Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. People ages 16–17 may get a booster dose of Pfizer at least 6 months after their initial series of vaccines.
The CDC says A person is fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving all recommended doses in the primary series of their COVID-19 vaccination. A person is up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination if they have received all recommended doses in the primary series and one booster when eligible.
Getting a second booster is not necessary to be considered up to date at this time. A study by The Cleveland Clinic found that both previous infection and vaccination provide substantial protection against COVID-19. Vaccination of previously infected individuals does not provide additional protection against COVID-19 for several months, but after that provides significant protection at least against symptomatic COVID-19.”

Still following Kim’s playbook huh?
Isn’t that racist to specifically change the rules because of the color of some of the students skin? Shouldn’t they destroy the lives of all kids and not just the white ones?
Can anyone point me to literature that shows that covid vaccines don't reduce transmission? The "official" studies say that it does, and I can't find anything that says otherwise. I look silly telling my friends that the vaccine doesn't reduce transmission and when they ask why I think that, I say " well that what I keep hearing on YouTube"…

By January 2023 there will be such an uproar about these “vaccines”, as the fallout from the injuries from them continue to become known, that they won’t even be available.

So the newest paper on vaccine induced myocarditis in this age group isn't being considered either?
You want me to give my black son this shot knowing the high propensity for him to develop myocarditis? Um nope.
🤣😂🤣😂🤣 yep get boosted we all need medicine that they refuse to tell us what was in it and all kinds of people are saying they're harmed by it but it's much safer than getting a little cold! You guys just went way downhill when Kim left it's funny
I hope she’s getting some big campaign contributions to be a blue check race traItor, it would really be pathetic if she’s doing it for free.
why still doing this if vaccine doesnt do anything!!!????
Is there any evidence that a vaccinated student is any more of a benefit to public health? Let's see the science, then follow it.
We need Kim back……. Robie your the only one the hill has left , you should go work on her show!!
The nerve she has tho. Unbelievable
MRNA vaccines are different. Prove they are safe and effective without censoring certain voices and be open and honest and you might get more customers for Pfizer, but the fact is that the censorship, mandates and offensive rhetoric have destroyed trust. Threatening us with CPS for caring parents protecting their children from this toxic injectable further destroy trust. Two of my children are being denied a college education because of this. I am the only vaxxed member of my family; the free vax cost me $1800 for an ER visit, tests, worry, and most of the feeling in my left side which has not completely returned after a year. No more shots of any kind for me and I will be researching everything my doctor says from now on. No more trust…
Oh the irony of this! I imagine Samuel L Jackson from Pulp Fiction to Mayor B: "Say equity again! Say equity again!"
Keeping fighting this BS parents! The jabs are dangerous, don’t let your kids be a part of this experiment.
Stick to your guns guys, who do you trust
DC is a viper's pit of Democrat Dictatorship. My body, my choice. Big Brother can F off.
Do Private schools in D.C. require their students to be vaccinated?
47% of blk kids wouldnt have been allowed to go to school.
These mandates have done more to help homeschooling than parents could have done in 100 years.
Never take the d shot
Home school a must or sacrifice your precious. The death and heart diseases will follow
💉You have 20 seconds to comply…
This is where this site misses Kim so badly – she would have added that questioning – not the trite, shallow journalism portrayed by these two flakes – the real issue is that excess deaths of children after mRNA vaccines were introduced is as high as +350% according to sources that claim to quote official figures.
You can't lump all progressives into the category of having a certain position. That word has included people that were never true progressives. Really like this issue covered thanks. But lay off the labels
I’m so tired of the zealotry. There’s all kinds of new studies coming out with new myocarditis numbers and pregnancy. It’s just a mess how these people push and push.
Pax lovitt is b*****
These ppl like Bowser & other democrats are crazy
whats with jewish kim? she is a good reader, i will give her that.
Oh man who coulda seen this coming?
Hope this makes people less afraid to work with Batwoman in the future. Ya know cause she just takes people's interviews if her boss asks.
Vaccines are a cult
Who's giving the mayor marching 🤔 orders?
There should NOT be a COVID vaccine mandatory! It's not a vaccine and we should be able to choose.
Myocarditis is a problem for vaccinated boys/men under 40 years old. Around the world they know this and have barred vaccines for kids. Take off Emergency use Authorization and let the law suits fly.
Why wouldn't the NAACP sue? Oh yea…their money comes from Democrats and Progressives who are the ones making the vaccine mandate policy. Can't shoot themselves in the foot now. WHAT A JOKE.
They just want the kids in school so they can keep indoctrination at its best. Only reason why they made an exemption.
I thought we were done with this vaccine madness
Schools dont mandated the flu vaccine so why mandated this vax
I thought young people were able to deal with Covid quite easily?? And we know it doesn’t stop the spread. I’m confused
