KISD vaccination

Nearly 300 Killeen Independent School District students received the first shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at the former Nolan Middle School on Monday. KISD and Baylor Scott & White have teamed together to vaccinate area residents 12 and older. Children under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian with them to receive the vaccine.

The coronavirus vaccine is available at Killeen area schools, clinics pharmacies and other locations, and Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill into law earlier this week that would ban businesses from requiring the vaccine for entry or to conduct business.

In a Twitter video before signing Senate Bill 968 into law on Monday, Abbott said the state is 100% open, the Texas Tribune reported.

“Vaccine passports are now prohibited in the Lone Star State,” he said.

Statewide, just more than 44% of residents have been fully vaccinated, while more than 54% have received at least one dose, as of Tuesday.

At local levels, the numbers are not as high. Bell County has 34% of its population 12 and older with at least one dose of the vaccine and 27.24% fully vaccinated. In Coryell County, 31.84% have received at least one dose and 24.47% are fully vaccinated. Lampasas County is reporting the highest percentage of its population being vaccinated with 37.88% having received at least one dose and 31.3% fully vaccinated.

For those who wish to receive the vaccine, below is a list of known vaccination sites in Killeen, Harker Heights, Copperas Cove, Gatesville, Lampasas and Temple.

Some of the vaccine providers can be found on the Texas Department of State Health Services website, and others have been designated providers by the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program.

Vaccine availability is dependent on supply.

So if you get this experimental vaccine, Democrats will give you donuts and fast food.

But if you get diabetes from eating the donuts and fast food, they jacked the price of insulin up so you’ll be paying absurd amounts to get better.

It's never been about your health.

Healthy people, it's your choice to make whether you want to lower your chances of becoming infected with a disease that has killed hundreds of thousands of other formerly healthy people in this country alone. Believe the science or the words of the lay public.

Pfizer’s own documents admit covid vaccines will shed infectious particles to others.

The latest “conspiracy theorist” to come forward and warn about particulate shedding from those who were recently “vaccinated” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is none other than Pfizer itself.

The pharma giant’s own documents openly admit that people who were recently jabbed for the Chinese virus can transmit whatever is contained in the syringe to others, including through skin contact.

“An occupational exposure occurs when a person receives unplanned direct contact with a vaccine test subject, which may or may not lead to the occurrence of an adverse event,” the Pfizer document warns.

“These people may include health care providers, family members, and other people who are around the trial participant.”

In other words, there is something contained in the injections that cause the injected to become “superspreaders.” Pfizer does not indicate what this is, however it does warn that the culprits are people who were recently injected.

It is insane that I have to explain why governments coercing healthy people to inject themselves with a foreign substance to "win" back their basic freedoms is an extremely dangerous precedent, BUT here we are and they think I am the insane one.
