Food delivery workers flock to get vaccinated in order to be able to work

Santo Domingo, DR

Outside the vaccination post located at the Juan Pablo Duarte Olympic Center, a long line of food deliverers parked and others entering to get inoculated against Covid-19.

The reason is that they have been prevented from entering commercial plazas, restaurants, and other establishments for lack of vaccination certificates.

“I don’t understand how a rule of a ministry is above the Constitution,” exclaimed one of the deliverymen present.

He confessed that he tried to enter a supermarket this Monday morning and was prevented from doing so.

Another of the delivery drivers said that he received the first vaccination and had to go because they are demanding the second one, and “it is now obligatory to have the second.”

“I came to get vaccinated out of coercion, because they are forcing one to do so,” he said.

His companion assured that she was not against the vaccine but that “life belongs to each one of us and for the government to exclude some from it is wrong and for any of us to accept that is also wrong.”

Unfortunately, there are similar mandates all over the developed nations as well. People are fighting and rioting, but the news isn’t covering the resistance.

Luis is just as bad. Selling our country out to America & China. He’s trash, no real Dominican would ever say someone that keep us locked up for over a years is a good president.

My heart goes out to the delivery workers. It is not easy to be forced into something you do not want, but unfortunately these are the changes due to the pandemic. ❤

it is time to make our voices heard. this mandate is unconstitutional, illegal, and goes against human rights. do not worry about the supermarkets, use the calmados. when the supermarkets feel the sting, they will change their minds. if the courts do not overturn this, it proves that they are purchased as well. then we go to the streets and let them remember that this is our country. the people run this country. we elect you to represent us, not to rule over us.

i feel for you delivery guys. no man should be forced to do something to his body that he does not want to. it make you feel small, that you cannot freely determine what you put in your body. if you do not have the rights to your own body, you have rights to nothing. you must draw the line somewhere.

I see this site is filled with a bunch of liberal snow flakes from America. Go back home to California and New York!

I’m in the u.s a. and I go to grocery stores and restaurants without proof of anything and mask are not required. If they did those things I would not give in to their man-made mandates. I follow the laws of God and not man!
