School Districts Across the US Forced to Close After So Many Teachers Have Reactions to COVID Vaccine

"At least one-third reported feeling ill including fever and other symptoms"

Gain COVID immunity (maybe) by giving yourself COVID symptoms

Editor’s note: Most will never take a flu shot in their life, but go ahead and inject yourself with a never-tried mRNA vaccine for a bug that for under 55s is milder than the flu?

The Sandy Creek school district closed today after numerous staff members reported feeling ill after the second vaccine, district officials said.

Superintendent Kyle Faulkner told | The Post Standard that health care provider ConnectCare came to the district to give teachers, staff, substitutes, aides, bus drivers and others the Moderna vaccine.

More than half the employees received the first shot a month ago, and the second injection was Wednesday, Faulkner said.

Of those, at least one-third reported feeling ill including fever and other symptoms, Faulkner said.

“We are a small district, and we had so many folks down and out today that we didn’t have enough people to staff the schools,’’ Faulkner said. “Some people get pretty sick with the second shot.”

The CDC reports such side effects are normal, and can range from soreness and swelling at the injection site to fever, chills, tiredness and headache.

The district has 752 students, 78 teachers and 89 staff members.

Faulkner said he also received the second shot yesterday and said he feels OK.

The district is using an emergency day for the closing.


NAVARRE, Ohio (WJW)– Two days after employees were given their first round of COVID-19 vaccinations, the Fairless Local School District canceled classes, attributing it to many developing side effects and becoming ill.

School employees across Ohio started getting their first round of the COVID-19 vaccinations, including Massillon City Schools and Medina County Schools on Friday, Akron Public Schools over the weekend, in addition to Tuslaw Local Schools in Massillon, Plain Local Schools in Canton and Fairless Local Schools in Navarre on Saturday.

In most cases, as much as 80 percent of the eligible employees are accepting the vaccinations. Medina County schools canceled classes on Friday to allow employees to all be vaccinated on the same day. Other districts are choosing to have their mass vaccinations over the weekends so as not to interfere with classes.

Public health officials in the counties where the vaccinations are taking place call the clinics a massive undertaking, but are pleased with how they are going. They are also not surprised that a number of the people who are getting the vaccinations are reporting side effects, calling that perfectly normal for any vaccine.

“I’m very encouraged. We want to make sure that all of our school personnel are safe, and we want to try to help protect them so it is very very encouraging for us.” said Dr. Maureen Ahmann, medical director for the Stark County Health Department.

Ahmann said she was aware that Fairless Local Schools canceled classes on Monday, but was not familiar with the number of employees reporting illness related to the vaccines.

“As far as specifically the call-off numbers in Fairless, I haven’t spoken to them, but I am not surprised if people are having some of the reactions like that to the vaccine. In fact, it’s kind of good news because we know they are responding,” Ahmann said.

“Sometimes we see it after the first dose, sometimes we see it after the second dose. I had my second dose last week and had a 103 fever the next day. Although I would much rather have a 103 fever for 24 hours than COVID-19 for two weeks,” she said.

Administrators of the Fairless Local School District did not respond to Fox 8 attempts to reach them on Monday.

Plain Local Schools and Tuslaw Schools, also in Stark County, had their vaccinations on Saturday and held classes as usual on Monday.

In a report published in December, the FDA said of 38,000 participants in a test class for the Pfizer vaccine, 84.1 percent reported injection site reactions, such as redness or tenderness at the injection site. About 63 percent reported experiencing fatigue, 55 percent reported headaches, 38 percent reported muscle pain, 32 percent reported chills, 24 percent experienced joint pain and 14 percent reported fever.

The FDA report concluded, “The frequency of serious adverse events was low ( less than 0.5 percent) but were more frequent after dose two than after dose 1.

Summit County Health Commissioner Donna Skoda said she is aware of some school districts considering using a calamity day following the second dose of the vaccine for employees, but she was not aware of any districts in Summit County that have canceled classes following the first dose.

“We vaccinated our vaccinators and I can tell you that some have reacted. Some haven’t. Some have felt bad for a day, some had a headache, some body aches some fatigue and then we had a couple who felt really rotten for a couple days. So it doesn’t really know, but I tell you that it is no reason to not take a vaccine,” Skoda said.

For Ahmann, it would not be surprising that the normal effects of the vaccine might impact the ability of a smaller school district, like Fairless, to hold classes.

“I don’t know the situation today in Fairless, but that makes total sense and I do know that it has been hard for all school districts to get substitutes, you know, teachers, bus driver substitutes. It’s very hard because we are in the middle of a pandemic so if they do have some you are right it would make it very difficult,” Ahmann said.

Both Ahmann and Skoda said the fact that Fairless canceled school on Monday should not persuade those who are considering a COVID-19 vaccine to change their minds.

“We are really close to it. We know all of the cases, we know the people who have unfortunately passed on, but I have to tell you that illness that I have seen people have is nowhere near the destruction that COVID has caused,” [Yeah right. For the vast majority of people COVID is asymptomatic or 1-2 days of fever. Children don’t even feel it. — And it comes without the (probably low but) unknowable risk of injecting yourself with an experimental vaccine Big Pharma and the government have rejected liability for.] Skoda said.

“Feeling uncomfortable and having a headache is nowhere near what COVID can do to you and if you are fortunate enough in this vaccine shortage, to be able to have a vaccine offered to you, you should take it and put up with whatever side effects you have.”

“People who are vaccine hesitant are going to be vaccine hesitant no matter what happens, and so we are trying to help people who want help who really want to take the vaccine,” Ahmann said.

“As far as people using that as an excuse not to get the vaccine, that’s their choice. No one is forcing anyone to get the vaccine. That’s not happening so if their choice is they are not going to take it, that’s their health, that’s their choice, but we are going to give it to as many people as want it.”

    Yes, they say now – of people who do not want the vaccine – “that’s their choice”. But commentary in many fora suggests that society wants to exact a price from those who won’t get vaccinated, from being forced to wear PPE ‘until COVID is gone’ to being denied medical insurance coverage if they become ill (with COVID) but refused the vaccine prior to that illness.

    I can see there being intense pressure to get vaccinated. Some airlines announced their intention to ban anyone from international flights unless they could prove they had been vaccinated against COVID 19, but the airlines everywhere have taken such a shitkicking through the ‘pandemic’ that they cannot afford to be too bolshie, and some have backed off to making travelers who have not been vaccinated get a COVID test (which must be negative, obviously) before they can get on a plane. But it is clear they would like to help governments twist the arm of the public to make everyone cooperate, and it is also clear that those who refuse vaccination will be seen by many as outcasts and second-class citizens.

      Ya well, the airlines got bailed out , so they will do what the Deep State – tells them to do. Just like the politicians and everyone else that wants to keep their job. It doesn’t look good for the Home team.

    That reptilian humanoid, who want to genocide 90% of humanity, is concerned about our well being & want us to take the Lethal Injection a.k.a. Covidiot Vaccine for our health ?

    “People who are vaccine hesitant are going to be vaccine hesitant no matter what happens….”

    A: This is NOT a vaccine by any definition. As reported by the manufactures…. It neither stops the alleged virus nor does it stop the transmission. Why then do they want people to take a drug they admit does not do what it is supposed to do?

    B: It is a experimental drug that changes DNA. By the Nuremberg Code experimental drugs cannot be forced or coerced on those that don’t want it.
    We have corporations illegally demanding employees take this drug. We have governments illegally suggesting one cannot travel or do commerce without the drug.

    C: Being untested,,, no one has a clue what sort of terrible adverse events may happen six months,,, a year or five years from now. Someone that scoffs at others for not taking it may not be so arrogant in the near future.
