Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Firefighters, police nurses etcetera, and they could do that with the teachers also going on Tuesday if their hybrid and not in person on Wednesday if they feel bad this after effects that would be appropriate. They could do that fast enough. But there's also a lot of teachers who I think just as the rift within the population at large, who were just not convinced. At this point. I talked about that last night. Now I got my vaccination last week. I hope you've had or you will have your soon But what do you do Know I'm 71. I'm on my second round of cancer. I can't find one. But I also never looked the health you are how old sir? 71. Okay, Fine. I did from your picture. You look a lot younger than that. And I'm I'm spy. Hope was going on your show. Well, I wish you the best of luck. Anyone who's dealing with with with cancer. I My heart goes out to you. And I mean that Frank. Frankly, you know, I'm probably at risk if if if I ever exposed, But I'm not. I spend my day at home. No, I just know, I know. But you above all amongst others. Anyone who's dealing at your age with one something like that. And you know you well. Over the age of 65. No, no. I mean, what I'm saying is, you're now you now are in play for the for the shot.

Better respond me to say where to go into a building. Political question is first of all, it takes a couple of weeks for The shot's too really, Yes. Full protection is I understand it, And there are some teachers who have Physical conditions, asthma and others. People who are allergic s. So it's not as if every T shirt wants the vaccination, which is another complication, which is another reason why I think that maybe it's not a bad idea to say Hey, look, we'll reach herd immunity, maybe sometime this summer.
