Michelle Ferreri campaign confirms rumours she’s only partially vaccinated
By - nordender
She’s claiming she can’t get vaccinated now because she’d have to miss THREE DAYS of work to cope with the side effects. Give me a break.
Big difference between a nurse and a lifestyle vlogger/political hopeful though - nurses actually *work* for a living.
Upvoted, and truly grateful for your hard work.
Not a nurse, did the same, first time was a sore arm (I work a physical job) second time I got the sore arm and had cold like symptoms/tiredness, worked through both.
Same for me, but only 2 days. Day after the second shot I was fucked up. 39 degree fever most of the day, and every joint in my body had knives going into them if I moved. Oof. Not pleasant but better than getting COVID. 10/10 would do again.
???? What does this have to do with the subject???? Anything to bash Ford. Pay attention to the subject. I’m sure she doesn’t care about 3 days of sick days pay .She’s just making up excuses . Next time ,if you don’t have anything to add to the conversation ,why not read and learn instead ,it will make you look a lot smarter then just typing comments
Right? These snobby ‘I’m a nurse I was fine’ ignores that almost half the people I know were either thrown off their game or very sick from it.
Right but like, get the shot, then call in sick.
Yeah, but I think this person is saying that for their workload it’s hard.
Myself and many of the nurses here are public sector employees. A lot easier and safer to blow off work.
Yeah we're really understaffed too but we just went and got our Vax and called in sick if we needed too. Lol
I agree I wish we got more sick days. But there is no need to avoid getting the shot because you can't book time off. You could be fine, you could be sick, but deal with it when it happens right? It's for the benefit of everyone.
>People who act like everyone can just "tough it out" and keep working need to shut up.
Agreed, but there's also that some people HAVE to "tough it out" because they *can't afford* take time off work. Obviously this isn't Ms. Ferreri...
Two of the toughest guys I know took a week off of work from a bad reaction. Being dismissive of other people’s reactions and then hiding behind your profession is laughable.
Human nature: If my experience was good I don't know how anyone else can be suffering.
Look at you vaccination receipts what dose did you get on the first and what dose on the second. Ask everyone you know that got vaccinated. No need to reply or tell anyone -- nobody's going to listen or see the pattern.
Those are the people that got the actual vaccine and not the placebo
Not a nurse and neither is my wife
We got vaccinated 1 week apart. We still took care of the kids, made dinner and kept the house clean. Not really the same as going to work, but we managed
>We got vaccinated 1 week apart.
I booked my wife and I back-to-back appointments. After we got the shots, all I could think was "wait... I should *not* have done that".
We got lucky, just a few aches and pains. The kids weren't left fending for themselves with both parents incapacitated.
My partner and I got them at separate times because he still hesitant. Thank goodness because i had cold like symptoms for 2 days and completely exhausted. And when he got the jab, he had an reaction on his face that made side of his eye and eye lid swell up... we couldn't see his eyeball for days!
As much as we would like to get dose #2 together, i think it is wise to space the appointments out.
Not medical professional at all. But I took both doses and I was sleepy for two days each time. Why can't this person take 3 days off? Is it impossible?
We shouldn't be normalizing that everyone should just be back at work right away. I'm sorry that our provincial government is such a dumpster fire that you as a nurse are needed so badly, so thank you again for your service. But seriously, a couple days off never ended the universe.
Again, before the downvotes begin. Congrats to those who can go back to work the same day. But let's normalize taking the time cause it's not weakness and being overly excited to never miss any work is a capitalist ruse.
For most people. I would agree. Living hand to mouth is the norm in our new mad Max reality. But this person though?
Yeah. Read the article and I still don't get why she can't take the time off. Even during an election, it's not like there are big rallies to go to anyways. And why go if not immunized? What good is it going to do if she wins her seat and losses her life? Makes no sense.
Agreed. Clearly this is a political signal, and not a real position she's taking.
Well then she should have got it done well the 3 paid sick days was still on. It might even still be. I thought it was until the 25th
That’s great. I was a write off for two days. You’re a nurse so I’m sure you’re aware the second dose hits people differently
I went on a Friday just in case… I was a bit sore but nothing
The first shot my arm was a bit sore but the day after I was fine. My second shot I took it on a Friday aswell to be safe. I had a sore arm and sore upper back and chest muscles on the side I received the shot, over the weekend. I got off easy but some people got really bad reactions. I knew a guy who got moderna as a first shot and had to go to the ER and was sick for a week.
non nurse here and I was out for 8 full days unable to move. everyone is different. maybe she had an expectant rough time on her first shot
Ditto, got my second dose at 7pm and went to work the next day.
My company gave us 3 paid days off to be used for covid related things (Eg getting the shot, taking a family member for the shot etc...) Just had to get it approved by my manager.
All ontarians did get that.
Your company didn't do that out of the kindness of their hearts. It was the law.
I get that, but how many companies are abiding to that?
Fire fighter here, same thing I got vaccinated at 11 am worked the rest of my shift then drove up to a cottage with my two boys the next morning.
Raise your hand if nearly everyone you know, no matter how bad their side effects were, just sucked it up and did their jobs anyway, both times, because they had to, because they don't have anything at all like the privilege this lady does? 🤔
I’ve vaccinated a little over 1300 people.
Most people have been absolutely fine. A small minority have had some moderate flu like symptoms for a few days. I was exhausted for about 16 hours the following day after my second dose.
Depending on how she responded with the first, it’s not unreasonable to think she may not feel well for a few days. It’s uncommon, but not unheard of.
Just a regular person who was knocked out for about 36 hours after my second dose.
But she should have obviously done it sooner
Can't think of a more compelling campaign stop than a vaccine clinic.
I worked the day of and after both vaccines
2nd time for me was much better. Just felt really sluggish. She’s complaining about side affects? Just push through it!
What a ridiculous assumption, I was accepting to be down and out too but my 2nd shot was easier than my first. My first shot my arm was so sore, 2nd it was barely sore. And that was the extent of it.
I cant believe how ridiculous adults are. Our babies and toddlers get shots until they're 6. Such troopers, maybe cranky or sleepy for a day and then it done.
The real issue here is that she's interacting with a lot of people and absolutely ***should*** take time off if she needs to, just like everybody else.
I know people who were knocked on their ass for 3 days with their first shot and strategically booked their second one on a Friday so they wouldn't have to work through it. It affects everyone differently, so let's aknowledge that because pretending otherwise only hurts the vaccine movement and makes anti vaxxers even more suspicious than they already are.
I got my 2nd dose then proceeded to do a full shoulder/tricep/chest workout no problem
My husband was out for 2 days. Intense vertigo outside of bed, fever, chills, nausea whenever he left bed. Those symptoms only lasted a day but then he was so physically weak from the nausea that he needed a second day. So it's not impossible to need 3 days everyone is different. Though she could have planned better.
Not everyone gets the placebo you know. Some people get the actual vaccine an suffer within the first 9 days.
The author is being pretty manipulative stating only two weeks went by between when “everyone 18 and older” became eligible and the election was called. This woman isn’t a high schooler, she was eligible for her shots *months* ago (plus that’s not even accurate, it’s everyone 12 and older).
Lmao the article says July 28th but it was June 28th, well before the writ dropped.
I think the point is that she got her first shot on July 28th, and was therefore only eligible for the 2nd after the writ dropped.
But of course that says nothing about why she got her first shot so late; she's been campaigning for the local CPC nomination for months, and she knew the election was coming.
She didn't get her first shot until August 22, so she can't even get the second shot because it hasn't been 28 days.
Maybe they meant intellectual and emotional age?
There is more to this than what’s on the surface. Michelle Ferreri is not pro vaccine, only got the first shot after candidates were mandated to get them, and then she had to bail on an all candidates debate in the riding after the debate sponsors required full vaccination. Instead of just coming clean about her vaccination history and views, she made up a little fib that she couldn’t attend due to a prior commitment, but the real reason is b/c of vaccination status which is now too little too late. She was actively campaigning with no vaccine at all, and continued to do so now with only partial vaccination. I get wanting to defend your party candidates, we all do this, but at some point you also have to take a hard close look at someone’s behaviour (past and present). Even putting the vaccination stuff aside, I would encourage folks to have a look at this candidate’s online history, her views on things, and motives for getting into politics. I would question whether she is even a conservative at all. Sometimes people just need to be in the spotlight for whatever reason, or sometimes they are convinced that politics would be a good “career move”.
Don't forget she also chose to do her campaigning and go door to door without a mask.
And she has been going into retirement and long term care homes - just absolutely reckless!
She is the candidate for my riding and even before running I was deeply disappointed in her. I'm a front line health care worker and watching this "community leader" bash public health measures, go maskless, avoid distancing while myself and my colleagues were barely keeping it together at the height of the pandemic was absolutely infuriating.
I'm also in Peterborough and have had to deal with her in a professional setting. It's extremely embarrassing that she was chosen. They know the Conservatives in this town would vote that way even if they put a crusty puppet as their candidate. Shameful.
Doesn’t the Federal Public Service require double vaccines? Good bye. Problem solved.
She's been meeting so many people, going into retirement homes, etc. This is so irresponsible and gross. She clearly only got vaccinated because O'Toole told her to, otherwise she had no intentions to do so. Everyone I know who wanted to get vaccinated had their second shot by end of June at the latest.
And she’s says she’s had no time, due to campaigning. What a pack of lies.
Where I am anyone who wanted could have been done by the end of July. But yeah, months ago.
I mean that depends on where you live and if you wanted to mix entirely, but I do agree if she wanted to be vaccinated she would be.
Sorry, should've specified that I live in her riding. Vaccines were readily available here.
Who cares why she got it. The fact that she got it is what matters. I don’t really blame her for not wanting to lose 3 days. You guys may feel like that seems absurd, but some people really do have shitty side effects. I was in rough shape for a few days after both shots, and I definitely wouldn’t have been able to work. I’m glad I got mine done on a Friday both rounds, I didn’t have to miss any work but I sure lost my weekend
What’s taking her so long? Thing takes 30 minutes
She doesn't waaannaaaa
This dumb lady is around vulnerable people. I’d rather she miss 3 days of work than somebody miss 30 years of birthdays
She's a horrible human who cares only about herself and furthering her exposure. I'm sure she thinks her mommy vlog will get way more views.
Irresponsible Conservative, running around her riding like a plague rat.
Terrible thing to do.
Lol dramatic much?
how is that dramatic when she literally has been running around in and out of vulnerable sectors like Seniors Homes, the people who are most vulnerable to covid?
party of fiscal responsibility, wasted hundreds every day for rapid testing... k.
Yep she sucks
Sooo. What's stopping her from getting the shot Friday afternoon? Be home sick Saturday and Sunday and only take 1 day off work for Monday?
I was very fortunate to not feel sick afterwards, I got the shot then went camping the next day. My arm was only sore for a couple of days.![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|shrug)
Doesn't have time... Like what 20 seconds to get the shot and 30 minutes to sit around? Horse shit
Surprise - a conservative.
Conservative candidate caught lying.
If she mentioned being one of those fringe cases who got a really strong reaction to her first shot, okay maybe we could give her the benefit of the doubt on the 3 days off thing but she has had months and months to get it, not to mention how much sooner someone her age would have been eligible for it. It'll take most people under an hour to drive there, get her shot and drive back. Has she literally had no time whatsoever to protect herself and everyone around her? That reads she's an antivaxxer or she has no ability to maintain her priorities.
Another conservative coward?? Say it ain’t so!
Not Too Bright.
So now we’re coming after the partially vaccinated? Can’t wait til this sub dog piles on the double vaccinated once boosters come out 🤣
She had plenty of time to get vaccinated well before the federal election was even called.
She's been going into retirement homes and meeting with people while campaigning.
Putting those more vulnerable at risk because she didn't get vaccinated when she was first able to.
This is a pretty selfish, stupid, narcissistic thing for her to do.
So can the partially vaccinated spread covid more easily than fully? Is there a study out there on this?
Yes, they can.
And again, meeting with vulnerable people in places like retirement homes?
Are you seriously trying to defend this stupidity?
You know, you are right on that one. I guess my point was if she has the first one, it seems like her intent would be to get her second. We should be encouraging this not villianizing.
As a candidate - SHE should be the one encouraging the partially/unvaccinated to get their shots
We sure as hell shouldn’t be encouraging “I’m too busy”. Fuck this excuse bullshit.
See, though, she was also lying about it, or at least, omitting that information.
The better thing for her to have done would have been to be upfront about her vaccination status, while also finding other ways to campaign while keeping vulnerable people safe. Such as doing a virtual meeting session with a larger screen where the constituents could see her and she could see them all in a room.
If she had done something like that, then I'd be more positive/encouraging about how she's handled the situation.
But she didn't. And she deserves the criticism that she is getting for her actions.
Partially vaccinated people are more likely to catch COVID than fully vaccinated people.
Therefore partially vaccinated people are also more likely to spread COVID than fully vaccinated people.
This person is going into areas where there are people who are more vulnerable, and putting them at risk, because she only decided to get her first dose recently, instead of when she was first eligible.
Nope, it isn't false propaganda. But you keep telling yourself that.
The irony of you making shit up based on misinformation and propaganda you heard, and then telling other people who actually have the correct information that they're spreading propaganda would be hilarious under normal circumstances.
In this case you're just a stupid piece of shit who doesn't understand anything he's talking about. Fuck off with your misinformation and bullshit.
>What happened in Israel, Gibraltar, Iceland, etc? Cases and deaths in the vaccinated skyrocketed, that’s what. Now double jabbed are considered unvaccinated in Israel. 3 shots or your green pass goes red.
>These are not opinions. These are facts.
>The Covid vaccines are useless. Vaccine passports are authoritarianism, and anyone that supports them is a bad person. Welcome to the wrong side of history.
The vaccines still work, and if we need booster shots then fucking whatever, we'll need booster shots.
There are many vaccines that already have booster shots. This isn't something fucking new.
Vaccine passports are not authoritarianism.
Have fun staying home because you refuse to get a jab.
>Queen of England
Did you mean the [Queen of the United Kingdom](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_of_the_United_Kingdom), the [Queen of Canada](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monarchy_of_Canada), the [Queen of Australia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monarchy_of_Australia), etc?
The last Queen of England was [Queen Anne](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne,_Queen_of_Great_Britain) who, with the 1707 Acts of Union, dissolved the title of King/Queen of England.
*Isn't she still also the Queen of England?*
This is only as correct as calling her the Queen of London or Queen of Hull; she is the Queen of the place that these places are in, but the title doesn't exist.
*Is this bot monarchist?*
No, just pedantic.
I am a bot and this action was performed automatically.
No. The fact that she didn’t tell the truth is the point.
Putting vulnerable people at risk and lying about your vaccination status while campaigning to be a public figure is totally everyone's business.
Yes it is. She is running to be our member of parliament and she is a liar. That is our business.
When you have sex for the first time with someone who is HIV positive, don't you have the right to know that? Haven't people been criminally charged and convicted because they didn't disclose their HIV status? How is this any different? If I go to a dentist, I want to know that the person's looking around in my mouth are fully vaccinated. When a politician is glad handing with the public, I think the public had a right to know that the individual is vaccinated or not against a virus that had killed millions globally in the past 16 months.
Get vaccinated or stay home. If you don't want to contribute to society then you don't get to participate either.
So, you'll be staying home then.
It's ok tough guy, you can do it! They will even let your mom hold your hand if you are nervous of the needle!
No I think the point you're trying to make is that she's conservative.
Respectfully, there's more to it than that. She's running for MP, it speaks to the conservatives... not the singly vaxed. They could have disqualified her but they don't care if all their candidates are vaccinated.
So now we are protecting liars and those endangering others? The fuck out of here.
Choices have consequences.
You can choose to not get vaccinated.
You don't have an inherent right to dine indoors or go to a sports event, or go to a gym.
And if/when boosters are needed, I'll gladly get a booster. It'll help protect myself and those around me.
>Too bad they don’t protect you or anyone else. Enjoy the Nazi life I guess 🤷♂️
The vaccines do protect me and those around me.
>Then why is everyone still getting Covid?
The majority of cases/hospitalizations/ICU admissions are in unvaccinated people.
It isn't bullshit.
There is literally a daily COVID update post in this subreddit *every single fucking day.*
And the cases by vaccination status are included.
The majority of cases are in unvaccinated people.
No, it's facts, asshole.
I didn't realize the unvaccinated were being taken in trains like fucking cattle and then gassed to their death.
Fuck off with your stupid comparisons.
Being unvaccinated is not a protected class under the OHRC.
Also, you don't have any right to put other people at risk of getting sick.
Some (myself included) would even argue that you have a civic duty to get vaccinated against preventable diseases (if you can), because doing so shows caring and compassion about your fellow citizens in a functioning society.
>Discrimination for medical reasons is illegal. It’s also a violation of the privacy act. Sorry if you don’t like that.
A vaccine passport is neither of those things, but please, try again.
I support not having to sit beside a fuckin plague rat for 2 or three hours at a hockey game, rock concert or plane flight.
It’s about my safety.
So you have no confidence in your vaccine. Got it.
No. I have confidence. However I read the facts about it.
It is not 100% effective.
If I catch the virus, I will have a mild case. I can still spread it. So I would need to fuckin quarantine for 2 FUCKIN WEEKS. Because I am a responsible, caring person.
Also, because I was mildly contagious, I could cause an outbreak in my company. Which can cause a temp shut down that costs a lot of fuckin money.
Damn, you people never consider facts, reality and consequences.
Have to ask, why are all of you antivaxxers also antisemites? What makes you hate Jewish people and trivialize the Holocaust?
They are pathetic fucks who don’t give the slightest shit about history. Anyone equating the vaccine with Nazi’s is showing their colours
No, your antisemitism is the only offensive thing here.
Yeah, you can stop spreading misinformation and calling people names now, buddy.
We get it. You're a covidiot.
Have fun staying home because you can't join society in doing normal things.
I get a flu shot every year.
I get a tetanus shot every 5 or 10 years.
It’s normal to need boosters. Normal. Not a scam or a trick. Normal.
Why is this news worthy? Are we on a witch hunt to find out who’s unvaccinated? Seems a bit extreme
It's news worthy because she lied. She told journalists previously that she was vaccinated, bailed out of a debate citing a "prior commitment" but actually she wasn't allowed in because she wasn't vaccinated. When called on it she claimed "the journalist didn't ask whether she was fully vaccinated just if she was vaccinated".
How can her community have faith in her as a leader if she lies about something like this? Not to mention that she has been campaigning maskless door to door, less than the required physical distance away from people putting her own community at risk.
And finally she claims she "doesn't have time" to get vaccinated? If she does not have time for that how does she have time to be our member of parliament?
who fucking cares?
When Trudeau had only one dose it was because he wasn’t yet eligible, based on age, for his second dose. This woman has been eligible for a LONG time now.
Lol so what’s the point. Who cares. It’s none of our business. It doesn’t make her any more or less effective as a leader. It doesn’t make her more or less human. What is the point of this?
apparently this is how things work now. people/reddit are dumb
Tbh I was considering voting for her. This helps me make up my mind.
Who cares Omfg people are getting so anal over this fucking vaccine bullshit
Here’s my final. Really I don’t give a hoot about her vaxes however just tell the truth. I believe that’s what we are all concerned about especially if your going to represent the Peterborough area. That’s where I’m coming from.
You tell me one politicians that actually tells the truth
We’ll at least she isn’t a fucking taliban apologists. Tough call for the people of Peterborough/s
this is some kind of a story in the world we live in now??, does anyone have a clue on what she is running on and why she shouldn't/should win based off that compared to her competition? are we going to nit pick when it comes to the booster shots as well??
