    The French parliament this Sunday approved a bill to introduce a vaccine pass in the final vote, which the government wants to implement as soon as possible in the face of a resurgence of the Covit-19 epidemic. With 215 votes against 58, 7 abstained. Socialist representatives want to send legislation to the Constitutional Court, which will continue to examine possible violations of “fundamental freedoms”, which will delay the passage of the law for several days. This Saturday night, the Senate, the upper house of the French parliament, voted on the bill, although it had several disagreements with the National Assembly, which had the last word. Sunday’s referendum put an end to two weeks of particularly tumultuous legislative process, interrupted by episodes of political storm created by President Emmanuel Macron. The Vaccine Pass is an attempt by the French government to impose large social restrictions on people who do not want to be vaccinated against Covit-19 and to force about five million people to be vaccinated. The law replaced the previous health passport (vaccine or negative test), using one exclusively on...
    Tim Henman echoed Rafael Nadal's sentiment of 'decisions have consequences' when asked about the Novak Djokovic visa row which resulted in the Serb being deported from Australia on Sunday.  The world No 1 was set to start the defence of his Australian Open title - and pursuit of a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam - on Monday but after the 34-year-old appealed the cancellation of his visa for a second time, three judges unanimously decided the star's visa cancellation was legal. Whilst Djokovic was on the next plane home, former British No 1 Henman insisted that with the year-round travelling associated with life as a professional tennis player, it has become a reality that 'you need to get vaccinated'.   Former British No 1 Tim Henman echoed Rafael Nadal's sentiment of 'decisions have consequences' when asked about the Novak Djokovic visa row on Sunday  Djokovic (right), on the eve of the Australian Open starting, is now on his way back home RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Tennis superstar Novak Djokovic LOSES his last-ditch appeal...

    (CNN)With the year's first tennis grand slam fast approaching, the saga surrounding Novak Djokovic's visa looks set to continue right up to the moment play is scheduled to start on Monday. While players have been putting together their final preparations ahead of the Australian Open, all the questions have been about the 20-time grand slam champion. "I think we all want to move on, whatever it is, move on and focus on the cool aspect of starting a slam," two-time grand slam champion Garbine Muguruza said during a media day. "I think all this could have been avoided, like we've all done, by getting vaccinated, doing all the things we had to do to come here in Australia. "Everybody knew very clearly the rules. You just have to follow them and that's it. I don't think it's that difficult."Read MoreMuguruza, who reached the final of the Australian Open in 2020, is concerned the ongoing controversy will have a negative impact on the sport's reputation.

According to the state health department website, there are 1,384 cases for every 100,000 people. The positivity rate has also skyrocketed. Omicron or B.1.1.529 Coronavirus the new variant of concern by WHO. “Our positivity rate is nearly 25%. That means one in four people being tested are testing positive and our hospital hospitalizations, which have been declining steadily,” Hancock stated. Hancock also warned that hospital capacity is “razor thin” The mayor urged people get vaccinated and boosted, saying helps prevent serious illness. “Most of those who are being hospitalized are unvaccinated. But what we’ve seen today especially with the Omicron variant, being vaccinated and boosted is key the people who do become affected staying out of the hospital,” Hancock explained. “Now I cannot emphasize this enough, and I know we sound like a broken record, but this is so critically important and so simple,” Hancock continued. “We asked you to get vaccinated, we ask you to...
    Lebron James posted a controversial meme to Instagram on Christmas Eve asking the difference between COVID-19, the cold and the flu after previously admitting he'd been vaccinated despite voicing skepticism over getting the shot. The Lakers star posted a picture of the 'Spider-Man Pointing at Spider-Man' meme, featuring three identical images of the superhero pointing at one another. The three are captioned with the words 'flu,' 'covid' and 'cold' underneath each of them, with the implication being the three are one in the same. Meanwhile the Lakers, like many other teams, have faced widespread personnel losses due to COVID-19.  As of Saturday, the Lakers were still missing head coach Frank Vogel as well as five players: Avery Bradley, Trevor Ariza, Kent Bazemore, Austin Reaves and Malik Monk, all over COVID-19 protocols.  The Lakers star posted a meme, pictured, featuring three identical images of Spider-Man pointing at one another, captioned with the words 'flu,' 'covid' and 'cold' underneath  Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James dribbles the ball during first half of an NBA basketball game against the San Antonio Spurs Thursday.

    Joe Biden criticized his administration's own handling of the coronavirus pandemic, claiming the response hasn't been 'good enough' as the Omicron variant spreads like wildfire, leading to a massive surge ahead of Christmas. 'We're nearly two years into this pandemic, you're a year into the presidency. Empty shelves and no test kits in some places – three days before Christmas when it's so important. Is that good enough?' ABC's David Muir asked the president in an interview that aired Wednesday evening. 'No, nothing's been good enough,' Biden candidly replied. 'But look, look where we are,' he added of the progress. 'Last Christmas we were in a situation where we had significantly fewer people vaccinated, emergency rooms were filled, we had serious backups in hospitals that were causing great difficulties. We're in a situation now where we have 200 million people fully vaccinated. And we have more than that who have had at least one shot – and we're getting these booster shots, as well.' President Joe Biden said in an interview that aired on ABC News Wednesday evening that his...
    Every time people like Joe Rogan or Dennis Prager, who didn’t get the shots but used early treatments, assert that they had milder cases because of their choice of therapeutics, they get attacked for not choosing the sacred therapeutic. Yet when the elected officials all coalesce behind the messaging of “it would have been worse” after getting COVID following the third shot, the media accepts that as “science.” I’d love to be a fly on the wall in the homes of these senators to see which therapeutics they are availing themselves of. I doubt they will leave their fate to chance – a diminishing chance that the vaccine works. These cultist politicians are trying to distract from the broader point. Namely, that it appears those who get the shots are much more likely to get COVID, particularly Omicron, than those who did not get the shots. At least the pagans during the biblical era bowed down to things that simply didn’t respond. In this case, their idol responds, all right. According to data from Denmark, the vaccinated are more...

    As the U.S. hit the grim milestone of 800,000 coronavirus deaths this week, researchers estimate that 163,000 of those Americans would have been saved with vaccinations. About 200,000 people have died from COVID-19 in the U.S. since June — when vaccines were widely available to all adults across the country. Of these 200,000 deaths, about 163,000 would have been prevented with vaccinations, according to researchers with the Peterson Center on Healthcare and the Kaiser Family Foundation. “Most of these preventable deaths occurred well after vaccines became available,” the researchers wrote. “In September 2021 alone, approximately 51,000 people’s lives likely would have been saved if they had chosen to get vaccinated. In November 2021, over 29,000 COVID-19 deaths likely would have been averted with vaccines. “The overwhelming majority of COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths continue to be preventable,” the authors added. “COVID-19 vaccines have proven to be effective against the COVID-19 Delta variant. Preliminary studies are showing COVID-19 vaccines with booster doses are effective against the newly emerging Omicron variant.” This new research comes as the U.S. this week surpassed 800,000 COVID...
    Approximately 168,000 of the 800,000 U.S. COVID-19 deaths could have been prevented by the Covid vaccines, a new analysis finds. The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) analyzed Covid death data in the U.S., and found that tens-of-thousands of deaths over the past six months could have been prevented if people had gotten vaccinated. They used the death rate among fully vaccinated people - who do occasionally die from the virus despite the overall rarity - and calculated how many unvaccinated people would have lived if they had received the jab.  September and October were especially brutal, with a combined 92,800 deaths deemed preventable.  The United States recording its 800,000th COVID-19 death this week, a grim milestone in the pandemic so far, with one-fifth of them being avoidable, per KFF. Researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 163,000 or 800,000 Covid deaths recorded in America could have been prevented by the vaccines - or one in every five The KFF team gathered data as of the end of November, when 780,561 deaths attributed to Covid had been recorded.

Kimmich says he was told intense activity could lead to heart problems and long-term effects."For several reasons, it would have been better to have gotten an earlier vaccination," Kimmich told German outlet ZDF.

    (CNN) — Most of the 43 people known to have been infected with the Omicron variant of coronavirus in the United STates had mild symptoms, but most had been vaccinated and 14 of them had already had booster doses, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Friday. The first CDC report on the Omicron variant in the US shows vaccination does not protect people against infection but it also indicates the first cases to be detected have been mild or moderate.

    The Los Angeles Unified School District, the nation’s second largest school district, fired almost 500 employees on Dec. 7 for failing to comply with the district’s vaccine mandate. The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) school board voted 7-0 in separate motions to terminate workers who did not receive their first dose of a vaccine by Nov. 15, the Los Angeles Daily News reported. The district terminated 496 employees. A district spokesperson refused to tell the Daily Caller how many terminated employees were teachers and how these terminations could impact students. In October, the district reported that 97% of its employees were “at least partially vaccinated” or had received medical or religious exemptions. The district bumped its vaccination rate by 2 percent before implementing terminations. A district spokesperson told the Daily Caller that employees who become vaccinated post-termination may be eligible for reemployment with the district. “The Los Angeles Unified School District confirmed that 496 employees were separated due to non-compliance with the District’s vaccine requirement,” the spokesperson said. “Vaccinations are a term or condition of employment in the District....
    An outraged mother is claiming that a California school offered her 13 year-old son free pizza to have his COVID vaccine - then warned him not to tell anyone about it.  Maribel Duarte said that her 13-year-old son returned home from the Barack Obama Global Prep Academy in South Los Angeles with a vaccination card after he accepted the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in exchange for pizza.

I don't want to get in trouble.''  The card showed that the unidentified boy had two doses of his Pfizer vaccine, on October 28 and November 18.

    The percentage of vaccinated Los Angeles County residents who have gotten COVID-19 booster shots is significantly lower in poorer neighborhoods than other areas, a troubling trend officials say could leave already hard-hit communities exposed to a potential surge over the winter. In the county’s high-need areas, only 6.9% of fully vaccinated people eligible for additional COVID-19 shots had received a booster as of Nov. 11, health figures show. The areas were identified using, among other things, a socioeconomic measurement tool called the California Healthy Places Index, and include places such as South L.A., southeast Los Angeles County, the Eastside, the eastern San Fernando Valley and El Monte. Booster coverage in wealthier areas has been significantly higher, at 12.6% as of Nov. 11, according to the L.A. County Department of Public Health. “We’ve seen uptake patterns suggesting that people in the hardest-hit neighborhoods are not getting booster shots as frequently as those in other L.A. County neighborhoods,” Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said in a statement. Politics Biden administration pushes booster shots as second pandemic winter...
    Jerry Jones is paying Amari Cooper $20 million this season and the boisterous Dallas Cowboys owner appears frustrated by the unvaccinated wide receiver getting sidelined with Covid. Cooper was placed on the reserve/Covid-19 list last Friday, just before the Cowboys began a pivotal stretch of playing three games in 12 days. Because Cooper is unvaccinated, he is required to quarantine for 10-days, meaning he automatically missed the Cowboys loss to Kansas City and will also be ineligible for their upcoming Thanksgiving game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Jones joined Shan Shariff and RJ Choppy on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas for his weekly radio interview and was clearly frustrated by Cooper’s absence. “First of all, he wouldn’t have been testing had he been vaccinated,” Jones said on The Fan. “So, he didn’t have symptoms. So, he wouldn’t have been tested. So, there’s a very likelihood that he might have played had he been vaccinated.” “It is very punitive to get the COVID, to be trite, it’s very punitive to get the COVID if you’re not vaccinated in...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says about 10% of eligible kids aged 5 to 11 have received a dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine since its approval for their age group two weeks ago. At least 2.6 million kids have received a shot, White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients said Wednesday, with 1.7 million doses administered in the last week alone, roughly double the pace of the first week after approval. It’s more than three times faster than the rate adults were vaccinated at the start of the nation’s vaccination campaign 11 months ago. Zients said there are now 30,000 locations across for kids to get a shot, up from 20,000 last week, and that the administration expects the pace of pediatric shots to pick up in the coming days. Kids who get their first vaccine dose by the end of this week will be fully vaccinated by Christmas, assuming they get their second shot three weeks after the first one.

    Former co-host Jedediah Bila was shut down Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” after saying she was not vaccinated. Co-host Joy Behar said, “Let’s address the elephant in the room because you were supposed to join us in the studio weeks ago, but you couldn’t because ABC has a very strict policy. You can’t get into this building unless you’re fully vaccinated. Everybody in this room knows that and is vaccinated, but you made a conscious decision not to get the vaccine. Now the CDC says a person is ten times less likely to be hospitalized from COVID and 11 times less likely to die if they’ve gotten the vaccine, okay? So why didn’t you get it?” Bila said, “I want to let people know why I’m not there. I have a medical exemption to the vaccine that’s been written by my vaccinated specialist in New York City that’s been co-signed by three other doctors. I’m not a candidate for this vaccine.

    The View’s reunion with Jedediah Bila went into meltdown when the panelists fought with their former co-host over her refusal to be vaccinated and her opposition to vaccine mandates. Bila beamed into the show on Tuesday, where Joy Behar brought up “the elephant in the room because you were supposed to join us in the studio weeks ago, but you couldn’t because ABC has a very strict policy.” Behar was referring to the fact that The View requires everyone in attendance to be fully vaccinated and must show proof of vaccination before they’re allowed into the building. When Behar asked her why she hasn’t been inoculated, Bila said she had a “medical exemption to the vaccine that’s been written by my infectious disease, vaccinated specialist in New York City that’s been co-signed by three other doctors.” “I’m not a candidate for this vaccine,” Bila said. She went on to claim that she has a “sky-high, multi-tier, multi-faceted natural immunity” to Covid, and the vaccine “poses a greater risk than a benefit” to herself. Bila emphasized “I am not anti-vaxx,” but...

    Austrian President Alexander Shalenberg announced on Saturday that isolation or home care for those who have not been vaccinated or sick against Covid 19 will be imposed from Monday. Of the nearly nine million Austrians, only 65% ​​have been vaccinated, which is lower than the European Union (EU) average of 67%. Meanwhile, the number of new infections has reached record highs this week. “The situation is very serious (..) We did not do it with an easy heart, but unfortunately it is necessary,” Shalenberg told reporters. People over the age of 12 who have not been vaccinated or who have contracted Covid 19 will be allowed to leave their home only from Monday to buy basic necessities, get exercise or medical treatment. The unattended house meeting, monitored by accidental inspections, is valid for ten days. Health Minister Wolfgang Mickstein said the situation would then be reconsidered.

    Dennis Prager made a rather eyebrow-raising comment on Monday comparing the covid-19 pandemic to the AIDS crisis. Prager was on Newsmax Monday telling Chris Salcedo President Joe Biden “ruined” the economy with his policies. “If we survive this as a free country, historians will just ask how did this happen? How did people get governed by irrational fears?” One of those “irrational” fears he cited was the millions of unvaccinated Americans. Prager, who recently said he deliberately got covid-19 so he could have natural immunity (as opposed to getting the vaccine), said unvaccinated Americans are “the pariahs of America as I have not seen in my lifetime.” And then he made this comparison: During the AIDS crisis, can you imagine if gay men and intravenous drug users, who were the vast majority of the people with AIDS, had they been pariahs the way the non-vaccinated are? But it would have been inconceivable. And it should have been inconceivable! They should not have been made pariahs. But this is kosher, this is okay. There was in fact a lot of stigma...

He is now remorseful about not getting the vaccine, and subjecting himself to hospital treatment because to his decision. Soliz also said he feels badly about the effort and stress doctors went through having to treat him, while also noting that they saved his life.  Richard Soliz, 54, spent a month hospitalized at Harborview Medical Center. He is unvaccinated, and apologized to staff for 'fueling' the nation's Covid crisis 'In hindsight, I felt bad,' Soliz told the The Washington Post about his battle with Covid.

    SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (KABC) -- Kids as young as 5 years old can now get the Pfizer shot, and vaccine mandate deadlines are either approaching or passed. But, not all areas are at the same level when it comes to vaccination rates.For example, the Southern California zip code with one of the highest percentages of the total population that's been fully vaccinated, according to the data, is 92637 in Orange County. The Laguna Woods zip code has a median age of about 76, and had a vaccination rate of about 92% as of November 2.The SoCal zip code with one of the lowest recorded fully vaccinated rates is zip code 92278 in San Bernardino County, at a rate of less than 1% of the total population.But the overall trend, especially in urban areas of Southern California, shows poorer, younger communities of color are still lagging in getting their vaccines.Vaccination rates by zip code in CaliforniaMap not displaying correctly?

Penny the teacup piglet - who lives at FDNY's Engine 239 in Prospect Park - shared a snap of the flyer to an Instagram story, which warned the Big Apple could lose 50 per cent of its firefighters due to the November 1 edict. Written in attention-grabbing red letters, it said: 'Attention NYC Residents: Did you know almost half of the FDNY is about to get laid off because of the mandates? 'How will this affect YOU?' It went on to detail statistics - including that the FDNY responds to 600,000 fires each year, with 606 New Yorkers injured in blazes each month, and that most fires occur in 'COMMUNITIES OF COLOR'. Penny's flyer goes on to claim that there'll be 3,500 fewer firefighters protecting the city from November 1, and adds: 'If you have to call 911 for your family member during a heart attack, or your home starting to burn down,...
    A total of 26 New York firehouses have been forced to close after firefighters refused to get vaccinated ahead of Mayor Bill de Blasio's Monday deadline - and a seven-year-old boy died the following day as departments saw major staff shortages.  The Uniformed Firefighters Association revealed a list of FDNY stations that 'have close due to no manpower' and it includes six in Manhattan, nine in Brooklyn, three in Queens, four in the Bronx and four in Staten Island. On Friday FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro warned that the effects of the closures could be catastrophic and 'endanger the lives' of city residents. A day later Robert Resto, 7, was killed and his 54-year-old grandmother were seriously hurt after a deadly blaze engulfed their Washington Heights home around 1.30am Saturday.  Although an FDNY spokesman told the FDNY that the firefighters' response time was not impacted by the 10,951 firefighters who have yet to get vaccinated, just yesterday firefighters were reportedly calling out sick to avoid unpaid leave.  A total of 26 New York firehouses have been forced to close after firefighters refused...

    Fox News’ Jesse Watters said Friday that not a single person has been fired from the network for not getting vaccinated. During CNN’s Thursday night town hall, President Joe Biden defended vaccine mandates for businesses and noted, with some amusement, that Fox News “mandate[s] vaccinations.” Fox News’ policy is not a mandate, but the network does have strict covid-19 protocols. Employees are required to input their vaccination status into a system, and unvaccinated employees or those who haven’t input their status are subject to daily testing. Fox & Friends hit the president and said he’s pushing “misinformation,” followed by Watters similarly slamming Biden while guest hosting Tucker Carlson Tonight. “For weeks, Joe Biden has claimed that this network, Fox News, mandates that its employees take the covid shot. That’s never been true,” he said. “No one corrects the lie.” Watters did not respond by telling viewers what Fox News’ policy actually is, but he did state the following: To be clear, not a single person has been fired from Fox for refusing to get vaccinated. Period. You can watch above,...
    Whoopi Goldberg told her co-hosts Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that former Secretary of State Colin Powell may not have died if more Americas were vaccinated against COVID-19. Goldberg said, “Here’s my thing, at some point, people are going to have to grow up. You’re either going to have to make a decision. Five gazillion of us are vaccinated, and we’re okay. Yeah, people have died. People have died having been vaccinated. As of October, there have been 7,178 fatal breakthrough cases that have been reported to the CDC.” She continued, “The point is you see us all walking around. You see people who have been vaccinated walking around. We’re not walking around with two heads or five tails. We’re walking around like everybody else.” Goldberg added, “It is very simple. He may not have died as quickly —” Co-host Joy Behar said, “Colin Powell.” Goldberg continued, “Had everybody been vaccinated. Yes, he may not have died as quickly. And all of those folks over at Fox, just tell your people. Tell your people why you had to get it. You...
    Getty Cam Newton Former New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton wants to return to the NFL, but he’s not going to take any opportunity. In a video he released on his social media channels on Sunday, Newton revealed he has been vaccinated to protect himself and others from the COVID-19 virus. He killed any rumors that would suggest he didn’t want to continue playing football. Newton cleared the air on another potential misconception.

    Tens of thousands of COVID-19 deaths over the past four months could have been prevented had people gotten vaccinated, a new analysis finds. Researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) found that 90,000 virus-related deaths since June 2021 - while the vaccine was widely available - were avoidable. More than half, nearly 50,000, of these preventable deaths occurred in September, and 24,600 deaths occurring in August.   Researchers want health officials to do more to help reach the remaining 70 million  unvaccinated Americans, and convince them to get the shots to protect themselves. A KFF analysis finds that more than 90,000 deaths in the U.S. between June and September of 2021 - 80% of total deaths - could have been prevented by the COVID-19 vaccines The researchers, who published their findings Wednesday as part of the Peterson-KFF Health System Tracker, used official death data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for their analysis. Dr Krutika Amin, associate director of the tracker and one of the study's authors, told DailyMail.com that her team looked at the total number of...

    The Biden administration will soon allow nonessential travelers from Canada or Mexico who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter the country via land crossings, laying out a two-stage process to require everyone entering the country to be fully vaccinated. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas will announce on Wednesday that foreign nationals who have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and have the appropriate paperwork to enter the U.S. can do so beginning in early November, a senior administration official said. Currently, only “essential” travelers from Canada and Mexico are allowed into the U.S. at border crossings, regardless of their vaccination status. Essential travelers will have until early January to become fully vaccinated. An announcement last month detailed plans to permit vaccinated air travelers to enter the U.S. but didn’t extend the same permissions to crossings at the northern and southern borders. “We understand how valuable the cross-border travel from Canada and Mexico is to the economic activity in border communities and to our broader economy,” a senior administration official told reporters. “We also know how meaningful the ability to travel...
    Rock star Ted Nugent compared the vaccinated to sheep as he railed against the shot and those who’ve taken it to protect themselves from the coronavirus. Nugent recently appeared on PBS’ Off The Record, where he claimed that “I actually think that Covid-19 might be a weaponized virus created in Wuhan by Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and [Anthony] Fauci.” As for the vaccine, Nugent went on and on about how it was an “experimental shot” that was given “fake authorization” by the FDA and “I don’t believe it’s a vaccine. Most of America doesn’t believe it’s a vaccine.” “The only ones that are taking it are either gullible or being forced because they’re gonna lose their job, lose their life, and lose their livelihood,” Nugent claimed. “This is an experimental shot. If you try to give it to me, I’ll experiment on you.” Eventually, Tim Skubick asked Nugent if people are “dead wrong” to believe that the vaccine can save lives. This was the part where Nugent insulted the vaccinated by bleating like a sheep: I appreciate the opportunity to...

    Americans who identify as Democrats are far more likely to be vaccinated against COVID-19 than people affiliated with other political parties, a new poll finds. The survey, which was conducted by Gallup, found that nine in 10 Democrats say they are fully vaccinated. Comparatively, just two-thirds of Independents and half of Republicans report having received their Covid shots. The findings add to a growing body of evidence that political affiliation is a likely predictor of vaccination status. But the pollsters say that there is not only a political divide when it comes to vaccination rates but also a divide in understanding the risks of COVID-19.  A new poll looked at vaccination rates by political affiliation as well as understanding of vaccine efficacy and COVID-19 hospitalization risk. Pictured: Edward Williams, 62, a resident at Hebrew Home at Riverdale, receives a COVID-19 booster shot in New York, September 27 As of September 2021, 92% of Democrats say they have received a COVID-19 vaccine compared to 66% of Independents and 56% of Republicans (above) Gallup has been tracking COVID-19 vaccination rates among adults by political...
