  1. “7 million COVID-19 vaccines given out across Missouri” in spite of ZERO long term testing, the worst adverse event record ever, and this by Fauci,“They are seeing a waning of immunity not only against infection but against hospitalization and to some extent death, which is starting to now involve all age groups. It isn’t just the elderly”

    1. Get Boosted… these vaccines are incredibly safe and effective and there are any number of studies proving that to anyone who really wishes to look at facts . Cult members like Alice are have no interest in facts or learning.
