And things get interesting - Boeing requires the jab

From Seattle station KOMO:

Boeing tells workers they must get COVID-19 vaccine
The Boeing Co. has told employees they must be vaccinated against COVID-19 or possibly be fired.

According to a published report, the deadline for workers at the aerospace giant is Dec. 8.

“Compliance with these requirements is a condition of employment,” states a Boeing internal presentation from Tuesday viewed by the newspaper. “Employees who are unable to meet these requirements ... may be released from the company.”

They are allowing disability or religious exemptions but will require "frequent testing".
57,000 employees in WA State. The unions?

Jon Holden, president of International Association of Machinists (IAM) District 751, in his message to members in the October issue of the union paper, wrote that “the reality is our members are polarized on this issue.”

“It is our responsibility to defend and advocate for all our members,” Holden added. And though he noted that he and his family are vaccinated, the union must also defend “those who can’t or won’t accept the vaccine.”

Good - there is enough evidence out there that the vaccine is not good for you.
Israel for example - from Newsweek:

Israel, World Leader in Vaccine Booster Shots, Hit by Surge in COVID Cases
Cases of COVID-19 are surging in Israel despite the nation leading the world in vaccine booster shots.

The current wave of infections has surpassed numbers seen in previous outbreaks and bucks the recent downward trend.

More than 10,000 new COVID-19 cases were recorded on September 13, with an average of 8,000 new infections each day as positive test rates continue to climb, according to Health Ministry figures.

"That is a record that did not exist in the previous waves," Health Ministry Director-General Nachman Ash said via video call to the Knesset Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee on Tuesday, as reported by The Times of Israel.

Wonder how Boeing will fare with so many people taking early retirement or outright quitting.  Already in tenuous waters with the whole 737MAX failure of management.  It is usually the more intelligent people who understand why the vaccine is not to be taken.  Someone who can sort through the wheat and chaff and make their own decisions.
