Tampa Bay Today With Shriner

SOUTHFIELD, MI - AUGUST 24: A patient receives his booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine during an Oakland County Health Department vaccination clinic at the Southfield Pavilion on August 24, 2021 in Southfield, Michigan. Oakland County is the second county in Michigan to reach the state's goal of vaccinating 70% of its population.

An update to yesterday’s story Shriner has the answer to either losing his career or getting vaccinated. Pfizer was given FDA approval, but Shriner is not sure whether it was because of pressure or duress of mandatory vaccines. The Pentagon has currently issued a memo stating all military personnel will be vaccinated, which Shriner admits is good because of how much they travel. However, in July, President Biden said that federal employees would have to get regular testing or be vaccinated. Shriner wonders how he can issue a vaccine mandate yet not make it mandatory for Federal employees.

Private businesses are allowed to require vaccines under the US Equal Opportunity Employment  Commission (EEOC). However, Biden states he lacks the power over them to issue a vaccine mandate. Biden states the moment is here for you to get the vaccine. Shriner states he doesn’t remember asking for the moment to be given to him. He would not get it until he was told by the company he works for to get it. He had to choose to be homeless or lose his job, which he states he is probably getting it. He does not have any health conditions preventing him, nor will he lie about his religion to escape. He believes strongly enough in God that he will be ok in the end.
