Iowa 80 Truckstop to host COVID-19 vaccine clinic June 3Comment
I guess this would be Walcott’s way of contributing to the on going driver shortage. This is not a vaccine, even the CDC says that it will not prevent you from getting COVID. However, it has more deaths and long term complications that go with it than all previous vaccines combined.
So, I guess if you want to take this shot, go for it. Maybe with the larger driver shortage, the ones that don’t take it, and survive, will have even more reason for pay raises.
