We are an evolved society, or at least I would like to think so.  As an individual who spent 15 years in public health as an emergency manager, writing Pandemic plans, I find myself disgusted with the level of deceit that has been perpetuated on the American people.  The skewed numbers, the misrepresented morbidity and mortality rates, the misinformation that surrounds this vaccine is phenomenal.  At no other time in the History of this FREE country, have we ever seen the level of control over the people this Governor and the Health Commissioner are forcing on the people.  Since there is no possible way to determine if this vaccine will have an ill effect on people in 5, 10 or 20 years (the clinical trials and data are not there), then any effort to force vaccinate anyone would be criminal, unconstitutional and for many of us an unGodly violation of our bodies that would only leave us with one option.  As a Marine wife, I have to see my husband everyday struggle with the actions this government is taking to perpetuate a great fraud on the people and deny them, our GOD given fundamental rights to live.  As a reminder our constitution does not place limitations on the people, it places limitations on the control the government is allowed to take against the people.  We have sat by and waited for you the health department and Governor of this state, to begin to tell the truth to the people.  We know enough about the virus now to know that people who are vaccinated are carrying more of a viral load than those who are unvaccinated.  To continue to lie to the people is unconscionable, but you can't (or don't want) to get in front of the fear you have forced on them.  It's so sad for me, when I talk to the elderly and I see how afraid you have made them. Since I have a father that died from the flu and being placed on a respirator, I'm floored that you would continue to tell people they stand a better chance vaccinated.  I've kept count now of the many people I know who've had COVID.  The total number is 127... In my immediate circle, this includes families who have multiple members who live in their homes.  Do you know how many people died?  ZERO!  Not a single one.  The virus was difficult to kick for some of them, but no more so than other ones we have that are not so common.  

If you force a mandate, then you tell the people of VA that you do not value their constitutional rights to choose, that the American way of life exists no more and you are the ones that took it from us. There are many more people out there, who will not allow you to inject them with the cells from aborted babies.  You will see resistance to this across the board from people who are even pro-vaccine.  Have you even seen what people are saying?  Do you really think the majority is on board with what you've done?  The answer is no... 

We draw the line when you seek to take our choice away.   Since you are medical professionals and your Hypocratic oath is to "first do no harm", I would think that you would hold sacrosanct the purity of medical autonomy and informed consent.  When you take those things away you cease to have a democracy or a republic.  Perhaps, you know that.  Perhaps, this is your goal!  

We the people do NOT support this regulation!  And we certainly do not appreciate the abuse of power being exhibited in Richmond.
