FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): It was a protest against something that hasn’t even happened yet.

A group of parents of Northwest Allen County Schools students staged a protest in front of Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne over the weekend, saying they were against vaccine mandates and in support of “medical freedom.”

According to our Partners in News at ABC 21, the protest came in spite of there currently being no COVID vaccine requirement planned for NACS students or staff, although NACS does have a face mask mandate that is expiring on December 18th. 

NACS officials did not comment on the protest.

This was NOT a NACS parents protest against the covid vaccine mandate. This was various groups including Hoosiers for Medical Liberty, Indiana Freedom Coalition and Moms for Liberty advocating for healthcare employees, human and religious rights, personal freedom to chose and support the rights of the disabled community. Parkview management has had discussion to mandate the vaccine for employees just like Indiana University healthcare and other private medical companies. Besides, why would a group of NACS parents advocate outside of Parkview Medical Center for a school district issue? This is why media has lost so much credibility.

preemptive action is a wise strategy

Objective journalism is dead.
In your first sentence, you convey your complete disdain for anyone protesting for medical freedom. Just because a mandate hasn’t been established yet doesn’t mean you sit on your hands and wait. Better to make your voice heard and try to stop it before it’s implemented.
If this injection really was safe and effective you wouldn’t have to pull out the authoritarian thugs and beat it into people, threatening their livelihood and freedom.
The media is supposed to be the watchdog of bad policy and expose corrupt politicians.
WOWO you’re no better than CNN or VOX. All of you STINK.

Regarding Covid Testing at Parkview….

I went to get a Covid test TODAY at the Parkview North Campus and what do you know…they had everyone wanting a Covid Test packed in like cattle with everyone getting the Antigens. So if I test negative for Covid, I now was guaranteed to be exposed to people with covid and have a great chance of actually contracting this “highly contagious virus” because of this facility. So much for Public Health and any concern for protecting people.

Bottom Line: I will not be participating in all this Covid nonsense any longer.

People who are fully vaccinated get and easily spread covid. According to a recent study in the Lancet, “fully vaccinated individuals with breakthrough infections have peak viral load similar to unvaccinated cases and can transmit infection…” Likewise, “People who get vaccine breakthrough infections can be contagious,” says the CDC. Therefore, vaccinated people Even more compelling, …“vaccinated individuals still have the potential to infect others. Worse, one CDC report shows that vaccinated people can still be superspreaders. If vaccinated people still get and spread covid with the same viral load as unvaccinated people then vaccinated people should be tested for covid in the same manner as unvaccinated people, correct? Correct. CDC also states, “vaccination is NOT sufficient to prevent transmission of covid virus.” If vaccination is not sufficient to prevent transmission of covid virus, then why are employees being fired for not being vaccinated? An irrational fear of covid doesn’t entitle a workplace to discriminate against persons based on vaccine status. Simply put, there are no compelling or extraordinary reasons to selectively discriminate against unvaccinated people when vaccinated people can still infect others, have similar viral load and be contagious. Therefore, given the absence of logical grounds to continue such discrimination employers should immediately cease and desist such discrimination. An unvaccinated person carries the same level of safety as a vaccinated person, given both can get and spread covid. A more rational, fair and least restrictive solution would be to provide rapid covid testing for all employees, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, provide free testing at stores, schools and hospitals and require all people to wear masks indoors until there’s ample evidence of herd immunity. The highly transmissible Omicron variant could help countries reach herd immunity as cases continue to rise, health experts say. More compelling, experts say Omnicrom is, “less severe than other variants” and “delta variant is the most common worldwide variant.” Thus, the Biden admins argument that Omicrom is a threat is a falsehood. Nobody wants to get covid. But it’s going to happen. Thus, it’s more important to take rational, reasonable steps and to put more effort into treating covid, not firing nurses, doctors, teachers, who don’t want to get a vaccine that the sciense itself says, “Is not sufficient to prevent transmission of covid.”

Therefore, someone’s irrational, idiotic, absurd fear of covid does not rise to the level of allowing discrimination. People who are fully vaccinated that claim to be “afraid” of unvaccinated are not following the science. Science says fully vaccinated people can, do and are spreading covid. Finally,
