One quote- "My body, my choice." Respect the decision.

I'm taking it as soon as I am able, but I do not belittle or stigmatize anyone who does not come to the same decision as me.

No one owes me anything but respect for my personal decision. It is my right to not take it. I am not taking it at least for two years. As the people who believe in abortions state, my body my choice...period...and last I checked we still live n a free state where I can make that choice...when I was in the active service I was forced to give up my DNA, take Yellow Fever, Anthrax, Smallpox, and God knows what else...now I don't have to and that is what is great about America. Are we going to control/deny Obese folks, those that smoked and have cancer, those that "volunteered" for duty and have broken bodies because of it, drug addicts, and on and on and on. I mask, sanitize, social distance and stay away from large indoor gatherings...I see people who mask and wear it below there nose or on their head or chin...I see large gatherings indoor and out (like the upcoming inauguration parties etc who don't take any precautions...are we gonna hold them accountable as well. If everyone would do what they were supposed to do we would be on the down slope. A vaccine that isn't fully tested and proven as of yet is dangerous in my book. We don't know if it is going to last 2 weeks, 2 months, or 2 years...you can still catch the virus and they say it will be mild but you will still have to quarantine...you can still transmit to others, still have to wear a mask and limit gatherings so what good is it other than to say you took it and make yourself feel better about it. What are the long term side effects? We don't know...is it going to cause liver damage, kidney failure, lung problems, paralysis, nerve issues etc...we just don't know. In a couple of year when the studies and trials are complete and we have more data then yes I will consider it but until then don't punish me for my personal choice...and as of right now legally it is just that my choice!

Lt Col Scott Shuttleworth - My next door neighbor is a doctor, and he has had Covid, his three sons have had it and his wife and 10 year old daughter haven't had it. Same household. He said he will not take the vaccine until the next one with more testing comes out. He nurse will give the vaccine on request. The decision is up to the patient. One more thing that we will never here on the news, is that 65 people have died after receiving the vaccines. Coincidence maybe. But I believe him more than my lying Government. A Government agency says it's safe, and that all I need to know to not take it.

Lt Col Scott Shuttleworth - I was talking to his wife this morning and that's what he told her. So he didn't break any oath oath anything. He is a busy guy and the next time I catch him I'll find out where he got that information. But I 100% believe it. He's been our neighbor for 25 years or so. We've even hunted elk together before and you really get to know a person that way too.

We treat those that need to be treated, we don’t treat those that refuse. It’s that simple.
