Joyce_Karam He never tested positive in the first place or even tested lol If he weren’t vaccinated, I guarantee you he’d be in the hospital by now.

As much as we can't stand Lindsey Graham, please don't wish for him to be sicker. We want people to know that the vaccine works. Any chance this is a GQP trick? Sorry, I just don’t trust Lyndsey or the company he keeps. His statement is so clearly misleading. It is not based in fact. No one knows how he would feel if he wasn’t vaccinated. To say otherwise is complete pro vax BS

Florida sets daily COVID-19 record with 21,683 new casesThe state saw its highest daily case number since January. Rush out and buy those “don’t fauci my Florida” cozies so we can sue GovRonDeSantis for negligence! Thank you Florida. We in Missouri were getting a bit tired of being 1. So GovRonDeSantis, how's that 'no masks or lockdowns in MY state anymore' strategy working out for your pathetic, woefully under-vaccinated state?

It was a great goal to have, he made sure the vaccines were available for everyone eligible months ago. The delay in reaching the goal was obstacles (vaccine hesitancy, and enormous misinformation campaign). We all know if Trump was in the WH we’d only be in single digits.

What about the border crisis? Why are we allowing un-vaxed with COVID in the border? So brave. So courageous. Can’t wait till he locks down the country again. I’m so fucking tired of these politicians and media pushing this vaccine shit. We’ve tens of thousands or Illegals coming in here and that’s the ones they catch. Just the illicit drug seizures prove these illegals are moving all over this nation unchecked.

Florida breaks record for COVID-19 hospitalizationsA day after it recorded the most new daily cases since the start of the pandemic, Florida on Sunday broke a previous record for current hospitalizations set more than a year ago before vaccines were available.

The previous record was from July 23, 2020, more than a half-year before vaccinations started becoming widespread, when Florida had 10,170 hospitalizations, according to the Florida Hospital Association. 교회에서 배교의 이유는 교회가 예수님의 십자가 복음을 버렸기 때문입니다 TheLatterAnointing Maybe they’ll learn when they’re sent home to fend for themselves because there are no beds available.

Florida Records Highest-Ever Daily COVID-19 Case Count, Over 21,000Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has resisted mandatory mask mandates and vaccine requirements. Yes, his state is SICK and so is he, hopefully for different reasons. GovRonDeSantis ...a people killer.
