Can you be forced to take a vaccine?
(A thought about the graphic—if you are in front of the nurse with the syringe, you probably waited too long to investigate your options.)
After the initial announcement of his Executive Order, President Biden very quickly changed the wording of his messaging from “mandate” to “requirement”. He apparently thought that would elicit a less emotional response. Mr. President, we are smart enough to translate them both into = huge segments of the population MUST be fully vaccinated by Nov 22 [in October deadline for enforcement against companies was extended to Jan 4. And then on November 12, the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals blocked the OSHA Covid-19 Mandate pending appeals. However, many companies will proceed to require shots either because they believe in the mandates or just don’t want to continue being jerked around.].
The CDC doesn’t consider us vaccinate until 2 weeks after the shot. The rule is supposed to cover federal employees, the military, companies holding government contracts, private companies who employ more than 100 (except oddly the Post Office) and perhaps other groups like colleges, if the feds can dream up an excuse. Only time and the courts (which are being flooded with lawsuits against the mandates) will determine if that executive order is constitutional and enforceable. Some liberty-loving states such as Texas are trying to pass laws to override the mandates. Meanwhile, employers are not likely to risk hefty fines, legal fees, and bad press by failing to comply with the fed requirement. Actually, some companies had already planned to mandate vaccines for their own perceived benefit.
If, for whatever reason, you do not wish to get the jab, I think you should be able to simply decline it or any other medical procedure. (Sadly, neither the President nor big companies asked my opinion!) Other than quitting your job, there are some limited exemptions worth checking out.
Click here to read an article about your rights. Note, although the FDA gave more permanent approval to the Pfizer vaccine called Cormity, that is not what is still in circulation…that is the old emergency use authorization just as the Moderna and J & J.
Anyone who has studied the science and the statistics might conclude that we all have good reason to ask for a medical exemption.
- Recovered patients? There is ample scientific evidence that the immunity acquired from having recovered from covid is superior to that from the shots. Furthermore, the recovered are more at risk for negative reactions to the vaccines. It seems that the CDC may be purposely trying to mislead us on the topic. Read more.
- Persons with autoimmune conditions. There seems to be an increased risk of vaccine side effects in this group. Read more. That doesn’t mean they will necessarily be allowed to dodge the jab.
- Check out this shocking article by Ronald Neil Kostoff, PhD, entitled REAL-WORLD COST-BENEFIT SCENARIO FOR COVID-19 “VACCINES”. It methodically blows away all the misleading fog of overly optimistic assumptions and deliberate misrepresentations at every level used by the authorities to justify their vaccine pressure. Kristoff shows that conservatively, 15 people will likely die from vaccine side effects for every life saved by the vaccines. That is the “cost to benefit (c/b)” ratio. Worse yet, that is only concerning seniors. The c/b for younger people and children is apparently much worse. Don’t you imagine that some of the crowding in ICU’s is from patients with vaccination side effects which can sometimes look like the disease?
- Then there is the promised benefit of the vaccines…you know how they said they would keep you from getting sick and protect others from the spread.
- In July, there was a covid outbreak after a large event in Barnstable County, Massachusetts and 74% of those infected were fully vaccinated.
- Israel’s Health Ministry says that the covid vaccine is only 40% effective at halting transmission. Israel authorities also say that the Pfizer shot is only 39% effective against the Delta variant. Other sources say as low as 20% after 6 months.
- Afraid of new variants, mass vaccination during a pandemic is the cause of virus mutations. Video.
- Scariest is an article by our hero Peter A. McCullough, MD which stated that “while moderating the symptoms of infection, the jab allows vaccinated individuals to carry unusually high viral loads without becoming ill at first, potentially transforming them into pre-symptomatic super-spreaders…251 times the viral load of SARS-CoV-2 as compared to samples from the pre-vaccination era in 2020.” (There are differences in the strains in this comparison, but still…won’t this will be a serious issue especially for healthcare workers mandated to be vaxxed?)
(Let’s stop allowing the demonizing the unvaccinated! It may very well turn out that they were right all along.)
The statistics above are certainly convincing to me. Unfortunately, even if your doctor believes them, he or she may not feel safely empowered to use them as reasons for issuing an exemption. There are compelling reasons for individuals to receive a medical exemption. Examples include history of severe allergies and/or allergy to an earlier shot or to a vaccine ingredient such as polyethylene glycol (PEG). This linked article has good general information about medical exemptions but some of the rules apply mainly to Australian rules.
Temporary exemptions for a few months may be given for individuals with high fevers or serious illness or current surgery. A temporary exemption might also be granted to someone who had a serious reaction such as heart inflammation to the first dose of Pfizer and Moderna. (Temporary doesn’t sound great, but who knows, mandate rules might loosen during the run of a temporary exemption.)
It is encouraging that in a unanimous decision, Oct. 7, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati, Ohio upheld the rights of 16 un-vaccinated athletes to use religious vaccination exemptions. The court judged that the students’ first amendment rights were violated when Western Michigan University mandated that all its inter-collegiate athletes get the COVID-19 vaccination shot and ignored or rejected the athletes’ requests for a religious exemption.
Likewise, a federal court extended a ruling that requires New York state to allow religious exemptions regarding mandates for healthcare workers.
Children’s Health Defense reported that “a federal judge in Texas has temporarily stopped United Airlines’ plan to put employees on leave if they have requested an exemption to the company’s COVID vaccine mandate.”
Note that Liberty Counsel is helping make sure that reluctant organizations allow the exemptions.

Hmmm. This whole mandate issue may end up being decided one lawsuit at a time or go to the Supreme Court. You probably cannot wait for that.

Data Collection and Vaccine Passports. There is concern about proof of vaccination, so called “vaccine passports”, on grounds of privacy and potential discrimination against the unvaccinated. We are bound to hear more about lawsuits on that.
An exemption might help you keep your job, but I have no clue yet if that will help with traveling or other places who fancy requiring vaccines.
