Companies need to read not just listen to main stream media. This is not a full approval. There are still many conditions that are not fully tested at this point. If a company requires this I feel they should be on the hook for any issues. Second they don’t force there employees to have the polio shoot for employment. Also the people who work at the hospital are probably the best informed to the issues and side effects that they are seeing. I do hop that with the forced shoot they are also signing a life time contract to pay this person for the rest of there life since if they are left go they can not get the shoot back out of them self. It’s my body my life my health.
