Nevada County To Ban Flu And COVID Vaccine

Elko County Board of Health Commissioner Jon Karr said that Nevada County may ban the flu and COVID vaccines, which will be discussed at the Elko County Board of Health meeting on Wednesday.

According to the agenda, the board may also decide to stop local marketing of the COVID-19 and flu vaccines while waiting for “further investigation and results of the Florida Supreme Court case to investigate the wrongdoing related to COVID-19 vaccines.”

Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, asked the Florida Supreme Court to summon a grand jury in December to look into potential COVID-19 vaccine adverse effects and to get more information from drug makers.

Elko County Board of Health commissioner Jon Karr stated that he believes the agenda items were placed on the agenda by mistake and should have never been there.

According to Karr, a worried resident raised the possibility that vaccines could cause cardiac issues and inflammation. The individual mentioned right-wing publications against vaccines as well as DeSantis’ efforts to look into COVID-19 vaccines, the person claimed.

“We’ve already been notified by legal that we don’t have the authority to issue a moratorium,” Karr said. “I believe it’s just a miscommunication, and I’m hoping it gets tabled indefinitely.”

Items may not go forward

Karr doesn’t see the agenda items getting forward because the commissioners lack the authority to impose a moratorium or regulate countywide advertising.

Another member of the Elko Board of Health, Delmo Andreozzi, disagrees that the board has the power to impose a ban on the administration of COVID-19 vaccines. Andreozzi wrote in an email, “We do not regulate or have any direct oversight of the health care industry. However, he thinks the board of health could take a decision declaring that the county would not use any public funds or conduct its own promotion for vaccines.

“As I am only one board member, I can only speak for myself,” Andreozzi said in an email. “It is my own personal belief that an individual’s health care decisions should only be made in consultation with that individual’s own medical provider for ANY and ALL health care matters.”

State encourages vaccine

Nevada’s health officials are still urging residents to visit their doctors and get vaccinated.

Since respiratory disorders like COVID-19 and the flu are still spreading throughout the community, health authorities advise individuals to take precautions to protect themselves and others, according to Dave Sheehan, public information officer with the Southern Nevada Health District.

“Staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccines is one of the most effective ways to protect against serious illness,” Sheehan said in the email. “The Health District also recommends people get their seasonal flu vaccine, wash their hands often with soap and running water, get tested for COVID-19 if needed and stay home if they are sick.”

The vaccination program of the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services encourages Nevadans to discuss vaccinations with dependable healthcare professionals.

“Throughout the pandemic, much has been learned, and information is available for individuals to make the best choices to protect their health and the health of their families,” said Marissa Medeiros, public information officer for the state’s immunisation programme, in an email.

The meeting can be viewed through Zoom starting at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

“People can get the vaccine, or they can choose not to get the vaccine,” Karr said.
“You have the right to work with your doctor and choose which vaccines you should and should not get. … Not some rural commissioners who have more insight.”
