    WASHINGTON (AP) — When a group of Republican doctors in Congress released a video selling the safety of the coronavirus vaccine, their message wasn’t explicitly aimed at their conservative constituents, but nonetheless had a clear political bent.

    Getting the shot is the best way to “end the government’s restrictions on our freedoms,” Rep. Larry Bucshon, an Indiana Republican and heart surgeon who donned a white lab coat and stethoscope when he spoke into the camera.

    The public service announcement was the latest effort from GOP leaders to shrink the vaccination gap between their party and Democrats. With vaccination rates lagging in red states, Republican leaders have stepped up efforts to persuade their supporters to get the shot, at times combating misinformation spread by some of their own.

    “Medicine and science and illness, that should not be political,” said Dr. Brad Wenstrup, a Republican congressman from Ohio and a podiatrist who has personally administered coronavirus vaccine shots both as an Army Reserve officer and as an ordinary doctor. “But it was an election year and it really was.”

    Wenstrup said both parties helped foment some skepticism, though increasingly vocal moves by other Republicans amount to acknowledgement that GOP vaccine hesitancy is a growing public health problem — and potentially a political one.

    “Things could easily spiral quickly if we don’t solve this red-state-blue-state issue,” said Kavita Patel, a physician and health policy expert who worked in the Obama administration.

    Patel said life could return to normal in certain parts of the country while the pandemic continues to rage elsewhere — potentially even disrupting in-person voting in primaries ahead of next year’s midterm elections.

    “We could be sitting here in the winter-fall with an entirely different, scary version of the pandemic,” she said. “One driven by a combination of variants and people who didn’t want to get vaccinated.”

    It’s easy to spot potential trouble spots now — and the political pattern.

    Mississippi has the nation’s lowest vaccination rate, with less than 31% of its population receiving at least one anti-coronavirus shot. And the four states that proceed it in national rankings, Alabama, Louisiana, Idaho and Wyoming, according to an Associated Press analysis of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data. They all vote reliably Republican in presidential races.


    By contrast, the five states with the highest vaccination rates backed Democrat Joe Biden in November. New Hampshire leads the nation with 60% of its population receiving at least one dose, followed by Massachusetts, Vermont and Connecticut. The fifth highest vaccination rate state, Maine, awarded three of its electoral votes to Biden and one to former President Donald Trump.

    Republicans are more likely than Democrats to say they definitely or probably won’t get vaccinated, 44% versus 17%, according to a poll released in February from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs.

    Hence this week’s video, where Texas Republican Rep. Michael Burgess, an obstetrician who reassured viewers that rather than rush the vaccine out in an unsafe fashion, federal officials “cut bureaucratic red tape, not corners. And they got the job done in record time.” The video also credited the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed with bringing the vaccine so quickly.

    Amid polling showing that Republican men were among the most likely vaccine holdouts, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said earlier this month, “I can say as a Republican man, as soon as it was my turn, I took the vaccine.” Even Trump, who was vaccinated privately while in office, suggested on Fox News Channel that he’d be willing to record a video urging vaccination.

    Doing so would be an about-face for Trump, who as president long said he’d be willing to take a vaccine but also relished politicizing the pandemic. He suggested that lockdowns recommended by his administration’s experts were governmental overreach, mocked then-candidate Biden for wearing a mask in public too frequently and used racist terms like “China virus.”

    Not all Republican lawmakers feel the same sense of urgency to raise the vaccination rate, meanwhile.

    “The science tells us that vaccines are 95% effective. So if you have a vaccine, quite honestly, what do you care if your neighbor has one or not?” Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson said during a recent interview with a conservative radio host. “I mean, what is it to you?”

    Between 70% and 85% of the population would need to be immune before the coronavirus is effectively contained, experts believe.

    The GOP’s top leaders may also have political incentives to appeal to those resistant to getting the shot. Joe Brettell, a GOP strategist in deep red Texas, said he expects Republican governors looking to raise their profiles will seize on vaccine-related debates, such as opposing “vaccine passports” that may eventually be required for travel, even as they implore their state’s people to get immunized.

    “I think that’s where smart governors are going to start asserting themselves,” he said, noting that some already have.

    Ideology also isn’t the only factor in vaccine hesitancy. Experts are also tracking a generational gap, with younger Americans believing that, even if they get the virus, it is unlikely to seriously sicken or kill them. Republican West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice even is offering $100 saving bonds to residents ages 16 to 35 who get or have gotten the shot — trying to reverse a trend that saw his conservative state become an early leader in vaccination rates only to have it slow since.

    Republican pollster Frank Luntz, who has been researching how best to convince vaccine skeptics, says he believes the effort is most effective when it avoids politics, with people hearing about the benefits of immunization from doctors, not politicians. He said many skeptics are persuaded to get the shot because it benefits their friends and family, not just themselves.

    “If it’s politicized, they will not reach herd immunity,” said Luntz, who said that means giving credit to both sides, praising the Trump administration for Operation Warp Speed and the Biden White House’s efficient and effective distribution of vaccines.

    Luntz argued that public health officials should be targeting Republicans in much the same ways that national campaigns sought to win over holdouts among Black Americans and other minority groups.

    “It’s actually very tragic that appealing to Black Americans about the importance of staying safe is heroic,” Luntz said. “But appealing to Republicans, who have their own concerns, is considered political.”

    The Biden administration is working with community health officials, promoting the vaccine to skeptics through doctors and experts who don’t have the celebrity buzz but may be seen as more trustworthy. Biden suggested that might be a better way to reach “Make America Great Again” diehard Trump supporters more than a video from the former president himself.

    “The thing that has more impact than anything Trump would say to the MAGA folks is what the local doctor, what the local preachers, what the local people in the community say,” Biden said.

    Wenstrup said vaccine reluctance can be bipartisan — but the opposite is also true. He told of helping vaccinate older adults in Ohio when one woman recognized his name and asked for a selfie.

    “She said, ‘I probably don’t agree with you on one thing politically, but I thank you for your service and for being here today, giving the shot,’” Wenstrup recalled. “I said, ‘And that’s America, ma’am.’”

    Editor's note: this story has been updated to clarify how the bill would apply to hospitals.

    A Tennessee proposal prohibiting the government from mandating COVID-19 vaccination and allowing religious exemptions cleared the Senate 20-8 Thursday, despite concerns the bill could lead to heightened vaccine hesitancy.

    The House passed the same measure 72-20 last week. The bill is expected to head to Gov. Bill Lee's desk after the House goes through a procedural move to have its version match the Senate.

    The proposal would prohibit state and local authorities from mandating the COVID-19 vaccine, although no governments in Tennessee have signaled desire for a mandate. It would also allow people to waive the vaccine out of religious beliefs or "by rights of conscience" even during a pandemic.
    The legislation would not apply to students at public universities and colleges studying in the medical and health care field, or students at any health care facilities. The bill also would not cover private businesses, although many have suggested they will not mandate the vaccine anyway.

    But under the legislation, public K-12 schools would be prohibited from mandating COVID-19 vaccination. The bill would still allow hospitals to mandate the vaccine among their employees and allow for religious exemptions, as granted under federal law.

    Governments would also not be able to mandate the vaccines even if they are fully approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the future.

    Supporters argue the bill champions religious freedom and individual rights to make medical choices. The issue, however, invited criticism from Tennessee Department of Health officials as well as other health care professionals, who fear the bill would encourage anti-vaccination attitudes and lead to another surge in infections.

    The measure gained momentum as Tennessee's vaccination rollout — one of the slowest in the nation — has fallen drastically. Authorities statewide have moved to loosen regulations, and Gov. Bill Lee announced Tuesday COVID-19 was no longer a public health emergency in the state.

    Infections have remained low in the state, but demand for vaccines stalled as vaccine hesitancy has persisted among some Tennesseans — particularly Republicans. Lee and Health Commissioner Dr. Lisa Piercey said they hope to launch a media campaign in the next months to battle hesitancy and misinformation about vaccine safety.

    Supportive lawmakers cite misinformation, individual rights
    But misinformation has come from within the walls of the legislature.

    Sen. Janice Bowling, who sponsors the legislation, previously argued COVID-19 vaccines could cause genetic modification — a theory debunked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Bowling, R-Tullahoma, also downplayed the scale of the COVID-19 pandemic Wednesday morning by falsely claiming data shows the disease is "no longer a pandemic." The deadly disease, which has killed almost 570,000 Americans and more than 12,000 Tennesseans, has remained a pandemic since the World Health Organization made the declaration March 2020.

    Sen. Frank Niceley, R-Strawberry Plains, said Wednesday he believes a healthy diet could deter the coronavirus. He said 70% of the COVID-19-related deaths were linked to obesity, whereas data from the CDC shows only 20% of the deaths nationwide were linked to diabetes.

    "Obviously, they are getting too much food or the wrong food," he told lawmakers Wednesday. "I think if you've got your weight right, and your lifestyle right, and your diet right ... I don't think this virus will bother you."

    Others, such as Sen. Mark Pody, R-Lebanon, said the bill would allow people the right to choose what's best for their health. A similar measure championed by him had failed in a House committee earlier in the session.

    "People have chosen, on their own, with the data in front of them, to say, 'I know what's best for me and my family,'" said Pody, who, without much success, sponsored a bill this year allowing men who impregnate women to veto an abortion.

    Knoxville Republican: 'All they do is perpetuate COVID'
    The bill drew bipartisan concerns on the Senate floor Wednesday. Sen. Richard Briggs, R-Knoxville, attacked the measure as one that could undermine the state's progress during the pandemic.

    Briggs unsuccessfully pushed to remove the "rights of conscience" language from the bill Wednesday. Briggs, along with Lt. Gov. Randy McNally, R-Oak Ridge, joined Democratic senators in voting against the initiative.

    Briggs appeared to cite a Supreme Court case from 1905 when the court upheld state authority to implement vaccine mandates. The court, he said, recognized the right of government to protect the community from public health threats, unless the regulations pose a "plain and palpable invasion" of rights.

    "The COVID vaccination does protect us. It does allow us freedom, it does allow us to pursue happiness," he said. "There is a substantial benefit that it protects the public health. There is no plain and palpable invasion of your rights, which is arbitrary and unreasonable."

    Briggs, a physician, attacked other measures seeking to restrain government control over public health emergencies. Lawmakers filed a slew of bills this year cutting back government authority over COVID-19 regulations, including mask mandates, social meetups and church gatherings.

    "Now we are passing bills that say on our citizens, we are not going to allow them to have the freedom from fear of catching a terrible disease," he said. "We've probably have a dozen or more bills that have been brought before this body, that all they do is perpetuate COVID. I don't know of a single bill that we've had that makes the situation better."

    Sen. Jeff Yarbro, D-Nashville, said Thursday the law could lead to unintended consequences as the threat of the pandemic still looms. Variants of the virus are still spreading globally, he said.

    "We don't know the future here," Yarbro said.

    Sen. Heidi Campbell, D-Nashville, said 700 health care workers have signed a letter by the Tennessee Public Health Association opposing the legislation.

    "This threatens their lives," she said. "They have to deal with the public health realm with individuals on a daily basis to serve our communities."

    NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - A bill that would prevent state or local authorities from requiring COVID-19 vaccinations is moving forward after passing a state Senate committee on Wednesday.

    Senate bill 187 would prohibit anyone from requiring a person to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

    A few dozen people arrived on the steps of the capitol Wednesday to show their support for the bill. They said they don't want to be required to put something like a vaccine into their bodies and want to maintain religious exemptions.

    There's also similar efforts ongoing to make sure Tennessee children aren't required to receive the vaccine for school.

    KTXL) — The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control says they arrested the owner Old Corner Saloon in Clements for allegedly selling fake COVID-19 vaccination cards.

    ABC says they were first tipped off by the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office about the creation of fake vaccination cards weeks ago.

    In April, undercover agents went to the bar and say they were able to buy the fake laminated vaccination cards on several occasions, purchasing them for $20 each.

    ABC says the owner, Thomas Anderson, was caught red-handed during a raid Tuesday.

    “He was in possession of a number of filled out COVID-19 vaccination cards, a laminating machine, laminate and several other cards that were finished. And it appears that they were waiting to be given to people,” said Luke Blehm with ABC.

    Investigators say they saw others buy cards too, adding that Anderson also had an unregistered firearm on him at the time of his arrest.

    Blehm says the vaccination card crimes here may be a first of its kind.

    “That we know of, this is the only case that’s ever been done — even nationwide possibly,” he told FOX40. “We did some research to try to find similars. They may be out there, but we just don’t know and haven’t seen them.”

    ABC says they have written up a criminal complaint against another employee at the bar, but it is up to the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s office whether to charge that person.

    The bar will remain open but FOX40 has been told their license could be revoked as the investigation continues.

    The FBI issued a warning in April that it is illegal to sell or buy fraudulent COVID-19 vaccination cards after fake vaccination cards began popping up for sale online.

    “It’s a federal crime here in the US. It’s also fraud and could be charged under forgery,” said Don Vilfer, the president of Digital Evidence Ventures and former FBI agent.

    In early April, dozens of maskless churchgoers in northwest Oregon stood onstage singing and clapping inside a packed indoor venue for Easter Sunday service. The Peoples Church, which previously sued the state over coronavirus restrictions, hosted three similar indoor services that day, each lasting a little over an hour.

    Days later, the state?s health authority began investigating a potential outbreak at the Salem church.

    Now, the Oregon Health Authority says that at least 74 people associated with the church have tested positive for the coronavirus ? one of the state?s largest workplace outbreaks.

    No worries. Jesus doesn't want them to get the evil vaccine and he will protect them. This is like the old joke about the guy on the rooftop with rising floodwaters who turns down the helicopter and boats that come to save him because he says Jesus will save him. When he dies he asks Jesus why he didn't save him and Jesus says "who do you think sent the boats and helicopter?". I don't understand why religious people think science is against god.

    So my mom is going on a cruise in July, and they were thinking about making vaccinations for all passangers mandatory, but the cruise takes off from a Florida port, and DeSantis doesnt agree with it. I think its a good idea.


    Fucking DeSantis

    I had an article saying that cruises are threatening to go elsewhere, but the link wouldnt work. It was from MSN.

    The cruise lines want to do it, but DeSansBrains says no business can do it. Some (colleges, hospitals) are making it mandatory though. Disney wants to fight his too. They are all good with businesses doing whatever they want as long as it's screwing the general population, but if they GOP thinks a business is doing something that might hurt the GOP then they don't want to allow businesses to be thought of as people anymore...unless it's for campaign donations.

    The CDC is saying cruise lines must make sure employees and passengers are vaccinated. So this may get interesting.

    My mom will only go if everyone is vaccinated, but I have little faith that will happen.

    I.do.not.get.it people will go out of their way to get a fake vaccination card, but wont get a FREE shot. I think it should be mandatory for everyone that is healthy enough to get one.

    My moms friend got a double kidney transplant and was on anti-rejection meds, her doctor advised her not to get the shot, and now she has COVID and is on a vent. My mom says she wont make it. Its not her fault she didnt get the vaccine, its everyone else around her that could have gotten it that didnt.

    I totally agree that everyone should have to get the shot unless you are truly medically unable to. I have read that people who have organ transplants don't get anything out of the vaccine because of the anti immunity meds they take, so your mom's friend is having to rely on everyone else to get to herd immunity...and it doesn't look that is going to happen.

    Is this the article?

    Yes thats the article, thanks.

    Anyone who has been on a cruise knows you are in very close contact with people. My mom and step dad were on a cruise where there was a Norovirus outbreak. My step dad got it, and was so sick he went back into A-fib.

    They've used ships to quarantine the sick together and away from the healthy population. Even a toddler knows that going on a cruise means that you're drinking, eating, washing and sleeping with everyone else's germs for two weeks.

    An anti-vax conspiracy theory is apparently making anti-maskers consider masking up, social distancing.

    Does anyone know if the vaccine protects us from the different strains of the virus?

    The CDC says the fully vaccinated can now go maskless in most places.

    An anti-vax conspiracy theory is apparently making anti-maskers consider masking up, social distancing.

    It protects against some variants better than others. Also, as long as a lot of people aren't vaccinated and get together and don't wear a mask, then additional variants are going to continue coming into existence. This is why we will probably be getting booster shots to our vaccines.

    Awesome!!! I had my second dose of Pfizer exactly two weeks ago yesterday. Hopefully you don't have any side effects; unfortunately, I was really sick a week after the second vaccine. It was strange how I felt...but now I am feeling so much better.

    Delta will require vaccines for new employees


    Delta hires a bunch of ex military guys and they are losing their shit over this.

    I drank lots of water yesterday. Arm hurts worse than the first but so far that's it.

    I figured if I went the first 24 hours feeling fine I would be in the clear, but now I have to worry for a week?!? lol

    My husband had no side effects at all (had the vaccines at the same time as me). Not sure why my body reacted the way it did. I am sure you will be fine.
