The Hays Consolidated Independent School District Facebook page removed a post about a planned bioterrorism drill after protest of the use of mass vaccination followed its two posts.
KXAN reports on the district in Kyle, TX:
The vaccination debate unexpectedly came to the Hays CISD Facebook page on Monday following two posts about a planned “emergency response and mass vaccination drill” at Hays High School.
The bioterrorism drill, from 7:30 a.m. until noon on Tuesday, took place in the high school parking lot, involving area first responders and volunteers. Hays County says they hold this kind of drill to practice the emergency distribution of relief items, vaccinations and medication and health assessments.
“This particular scenario was based upon an anthrax release in the county,” said Hays County Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Mike Jones. “We take that as a terrorist event or bioterrorism.”
CISD explained that students were not a part of the drill and they didn’t intend vaccination to be the focus.
“We want emergency medicine, we want to be able to get water and food when we need it if there is a crisis, but a mass vaccination drill — it’s not real!” said Donna Voetee who spoke out about the event. “A mass vaccination drill promoted by our government, its tyranny and it’s terrifying to me that this would happen.”
She traveled from Lockhart to Kyle to watch but says the actual event was downplayed including the use of mass vaccination, perhaps because of cyber warriors. (Click to Site)
