It’s started COBE asking all appointed men if they are fully vaccinated

    Without getting issues of the efficacy of the COVID vaccines, it is mind-bogglingly inconsistent of them to require vaccinations for “schools”, which will have an attendance of roughly 40 to 100 people, and not require them for circuit assemblies (attended by hundreds) or regional conventions (attended by thousands, in some cases many thousands).

    If their concern was “prevent the transmission of the virus”, you’d think the larger the crowd, the more restrictive the requirements.

    Seems as though one’s vaccination status has become something of a loyalty test for those with “privileges”. Are you “obedient to those taking the lead” when, while they did not explicitly state “thou shalt be vaccinated”, they surely l-e-e-e-aned in that direction.

    A 21st century Shibboleth to see who is really loyal and obedient.

    FFGhost I tend to agree with your observation.

    Is only a verbal confirmation enough or do the elders have to show official, like a printout from the place they got their shots. Like elders checking to make sure the documentation for not taking blood products? I wouldn't show them, I said only the medical system had to know.

    Even if vaccines were safe - and huge unexplained excess deaths around the globe, and Pfizer trial data suggest otherwise - it is beyond doubt that they neither prevent infection nor transmission.

    Typical GB pretending they are 'doing something'.

    No booster is required for attending any theocratic school.

    Full primary immunization (depending on vaccine, this is two or three jabs) is enough.

    Blondie, I think they have to show evidence of vax but maybe it is by cong or whoever is in charge of such things? then they can say someone just took it too far and it wasn't due to the gb blah, blah, blah....

    Like most everything else the Governing Body does, this is likely motivated by concern over legal liability, especially for schools that are directly sponsored by the Organization. They don't want to be seen having any direct legal connection to local congregations so they can't and won't enforce anything at the local level. But their own schools are a different matter.

    They can't get successfully sued if they pushed the official narrative and standard of care with respect to the vaccines. They do not, however, actually care about the health (physical or spiritual) of the Elders or members of local congregations unless it can impact them legally or, more precisely, financially.

    The vaccine requirements are for “theocratic schools” only. Things like the pioneer school, elders school (5 day and 1 day), etc.
    if it doesn’t have “school” in the title, a vaccine is not required.

    This is true, but CoBE were indeed told to inquire of all appointed men. Like all things, they probably didnt understand that this pertained to the limited scope of theocratic schools
