People that are fully vaccinated are still getting covid and is wrong with this world? This is definitely the end of days we are seeing. Read retaliations.

This is a free country. If a person doesn't want to take the vaccine that's up to them. Don't let that the United States. As a matter of fact Biden send all illegals back to where they came from.
