  1. Just get the vaccine for God’s sake. It’ll save you, your family and others!

  2. A person would be a fool to get vaccinated based upon the results from the tests that is being used in D.C.. The test is not FDA cleared nor approved. The test can only detect that one has been exposed to COVID-19. Only through extensive blood tests and analysis can a determination can be made without prejudice.
