Good for him. We're really seeing the results now. I encourage everyone to get vaccinated!

Ya, good for him. California is still shut down while most of the rest of the county is wide open. Gavin for President. Wear a mask, wash your hands, socially distance. Oh maybe I'm a little late.

This is how you’re spending tax payer dollars? Can’t think of anything better?

Vote em out

Politicians bribing to public to (removed: misinformation) unprecedented for the masses RNA injection.

It's not FDA approved? No problem! Inject your 12 year olds with it and make it mandatory for all college kids. Hope there's no long term side effects in a decade!

OPINION:

I disapprove, that our liberal democratic governor Newsom is using tax payer money in a-give-away to antivaxxers. Essential workers should be acknowledged for keeping this country on keel during this pandemic. Not antivaxxers whom disapprove of most everything government.

@buklau,
(Portion removed because it referenced information that was deleted) Check your facts. I'm glad it is mandatory for college students. I'm happy my college student got the vaccine.

I remember when it was just two weeks to flatten the curve.

They said it was called "Science".

Turned out that nobody knew what they were talking about.

Your turn BobB.

I read the Nuremberg Code a time ago, and I see that it is getting awareness through Social Media. It’s very important regarding this experimental gene therapy program. Look it up.

All around a bad decision. And what about the people that already got the shot and did the right thing(or not). It is not approved. I would love to get a lottery ticket for paying my taxes. Once again the majority gets left in the dust, doing the prudent thing, while people looking for handouts keep getting rewarded. It doesn't work and is degrading our entire society. If they don't want the vaccine, let them be and they can deal with the consequences.

DKHSK,

Are you asking a question? All I said was that I encouraged everyone who is eligible to get the vaccine. Also that children under 12 aren't currently authorized. When my kids were young, they got the recommended shots. I also like the idea of enticements to get more people vaccinated. I'm not a big fan of lotteries.
