Meet Peggy Hall. She runs a website called The Healthy American.
What is The Healthy American? For starters, it's a website that NewsGuard ranks 22.5/100 (a failing grade no matter how you slice it), for, among other sins and errors, publishing false and irresponsible misinformation about the Covid vaccine.
Q: Should I get a medical exemption or a religious exemption?
A: If you have a bona fide medical condition that prevents you from getting the jab, taking a test or wearing a mask – and if you have a doctor who will write the exemption, that is a valid approach. However, it may be difficult to find a doctor who will do so. Also, your company or school may require that you get the exemption renewed every six months or yearly. A religious exemption covers you "forever" and you do not need any evidence or proof other than your own sincerely held religious beliefs (or ethical/moral beliefs).
Q: Do I have to tell my boss my vaccine status?
A: Ask what the consequences are if you decline to state. (If it were me I would say, "I'm fully immunized… just like God made me.")
In other words.
- Employees should seek a religious exemption over a medical exemption because the former is harder to challenge and is more permanent.
- In the context of a global pandemic, "fully immunized" means two weeks after your final course of vaccination, not "how God made you."
