School district vaccines

Campbell County Public Health nurse Amy Poole administers a COVID-19 vaccine to Thunder Basin High School principal Terry Quinn in a mobile unit outside the school Jan. 28. Since the school district decided to offer $300 incentives to employees who get the vaccine by Dec. 1, there's been pushback, with some employees calling it discriminatory.

Members of the public, including some teachers, came to tell the Campbell County School District’s board of trustees that they were not happy with the decision to offer district employees a $300 incentive for getting the COVID-19 vaccination.

Two weeks ago, the board voted to offer the incentive to all district employees who could show proof of being fully vaccinated (meaning two shots of either Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or one of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) by Dec. 1.

Maybe these very smart and concerned people would be happier being told there's no room in the ICU when they need treatment for an easily avoidable disease?


They can always get a spoonful of Ivermectin from a veterinarian I guess.


Just ask any medical doctor that you know and trust... Mine have all recommend getting the vaccine. This is a medical issue... shouldn't we be asking our local medical doctors, who we know and trust?
