The constant debate on the COVID-19 vaccine has made for a difficult choice in many households, whether it is wanting to protect the elderly or for one's well being.
Vaccine Or No Vaccine

By Mirta Munoz Garcia
Sonoma State University Student

Covid-19 has changed all of our lives, whether it is having to find new jobs or losing loved ones. When it comes to getting new jobs in Sonoma County new rules are now being implemented. The covid-19 vaccine is required for many work-places in order to continue working at the establishment or to be hired. While the vaccine is not yet mandatory and will most likely never become mandatory. It has become a great debate between the anti vaxxers and pro vaxxers because anti vaxxers are now losing their jobs.

Personally, I am vaccinated and I have encouraged many of my family members and friends to get vaccinated in order to protect ourselves and contribute to the end of the Covid-19 spread. While it is hard to see many people lose their jobs over a vaccine I think that it is important to recognize that just like the chickenpox, hep A, and hep B (vaccines that are required for public schooling and highly suggested for the general public) the Covid-19 vaccine is no different and will help diminish the cases to a greater extent. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that the “COVID-19 vaccines were developed using scientific methods that have been around for decades” CDC, meaning there is nothing new being done, rather the same steps and technology used for our yearly flu shots is the same as what is being used for the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccinations are not only essential for a healthy life, but could help those who are unable to get vaccinated for various health reasons to be protected.
