Concerned Citizen says
Someone needs to look into the misinformation being given by doctors. I have heard from 4 women, no men, that their doctors have told them they should not receive the vaccine. The doctors have cited their health conditions. These are the same conditions that the CDC has listed as reaso TO get vaccinated. One woman was told that it would mess up her fertility treatments.
I understand that doctors are not necessarily any smarter than the rest of us, but I feel this goes beyond ignorance because it seems directed specifically at women.
I would like to be wrong, but in my 71 years of being a woman, I’ve learned to trust my gut and say something.
