Now I’m really scared of getting vaccinated.

I wonder what they are going to use the email address for.

I wonder if they can spy on your emails once they have your email address.
Or they can simply sell the data.
They will have the addresses of people who can be bought. Who will perform acts for money. Because it took money to get them to take the vax, so the same ppl would be candidates if other tasks need to be performed.

they need your email you to contact you. im not sure how out of the whole thing, you find them needing your email the fishiest thing, not the literal bribing of people

So devastating

The fact that we have to be bribed in order to take care of our own lives and the lives of our children and neighbors is terrible.

If you’re reading this and you’re not vaccinated, please stop being so selfish and go get vaccinated!! It’s free!! It will save your life!! It will save your children!! It will prevent countless unnecessary deaths throughout this country!!

GO GET VACCINATED!!

Before you go pushing things on people

Why don’t you look at the current research? If you had Covid you have a 1 percent chance of getting it again. People who got vaccinated are the ones who are getting the delta variant. Not the people who actually had covid. Not everyone does good with the vaccine. some get really sick. people have died from it. Additionally children generally do fine after contracting covid. but there is a high incidence of them not being fine after the vaccine.
so please don’t go pushing the vaccine on people, the government is doing a fine job at that.

What are your qualifications? You are very adamant about making making medical decisions for others, while lecturing them that they are selfish. 1) you are anonymous – so your word carries zero medical value. 2) A person BETTER be selfish when it comes to their health and the health of their children (commentators on COL will not be taking care of their family). Side point, patronizing people isn’t a way to present your argument. If you feel your points are important for the COL reader, get off your soap box, let go of your ego, and speak like a sensible… Read more »

Why would companies pay a hundred dollars for people to take their vaccine. Obviously they make substantialy more on each dose they give out. I myself never got Covid nor do I have antibodies nor did I take any vaccines. My family as well. There are certain vitamins that help against Covid when you can get in any frum health food store. It includes zinc and other special ingredients.

It’s not the pharmaceutical companies that are paying people to get vaccinated, it’s the city.

Apparently the city made the Cheshbon that it’s worth it for them to pay $100 to get a person vaccinated, rather than the thousands of cost them when someone gets sick.

Thanks for your comment

Was eagerly waiting for someone to comment what you said. Because I did the exact same. Kudos to all the vitamin/natural nutrition supporters which the government refuses to acknowledge.
And for all those who will say: you go to the hospital, when you need them, no? Idk when rabbi aaron rubashkin obm was in the hospital and the family wanted to give him vitamin c, the hospital refused. It could have saved his life! So thanks a lot!

The ignorance of some people is truly AMAZING

Those of you who are using fear tactics to disuade vaccination are literally RODFIM! Your ignorance and perverted ideas, which you got from other ignorant pervertd ideas, and are spreading to victims of ignorance and perverted ideas – you are literally putting a stumbling block in the path of the blind!! Most of you maybe finished high school – and in our schools the subject of science wasn’t exactly high priority; almost none of you have an education in science at all, especially at a post high-school level. Nor are you versed in halacha. And you open your stupid mouth… Read more »

You are not using fear tactics?

Just look at your conspiracy theory and uncivil post.

Why do you speak with such dirty words
August 1, 2021 4:22 pm

Respect yourself even if your heated up on a subject.
That’s not the way you will convince anyone!
May we all be healthy!! That’s what is most important!! With ahavas Yisrael and peace!! כלי לברכה!

Amen!

Good health and Parnasa to all Yidden( so they don’t feel tempted to sell their soul for $) MOSHIACH NOW!!!

“There exist dangerous, predetory animals” who try to push natural determinism (only science, no belief or fear of G-d) among the Jewish people. Likutei Mohoran entry for the 1st of Menachem Av.
To believe that only science will save you from a plague (or anything) is a form of heresy and it is a great evil to push Jews and Jewish children into this heretical way of thinking.

What?

Hashem created science and vaccines. Why would it be wrong to encourage fellow Jews to use Gds creations in order to save human lives? If you believe in Gd then you should also believe in His science.
