AntiVax demonstrators shut down vax site at Dodger Stadium

@#$%& these @#$%&!!

Dodger Stadium’s mass COVID-19 vaccination site was shut down Saturday afternoon as dozens of protesters gathered at the entrance, stalling hundreds of motorists who had been waiting in line for hours.

The Los Angeles Fire Department closed the entrance to the stadium at about 2 p.m. as a precaution, officials said.

The demonstrators included members of anti-vaccine and far-right groups. While some carried signs decrying the COVID-19 vaccine and shouting for people not to get the shots, there were no incidents of violence.

“This is completely wrong,” said German Jaquez, who drove from his home in La Verne and had been waiting for an hour for his vaccination when the stadium’s gates were closed. He said some of the protesters were telling people in line that the coronavirus is not real and that the vaccination is dangerous.

“This is the wrong message,” Jaquez said. “I’ve been waiting for weeks to get an appointment. I am a dentist; I am taking a big risk being around patients. I want to be safe for my patients and for my family. The vaccine is the only way to beat the virus.”

An official said the fire department planned to reopen the vaccination site at about 3 p.m. The site, one of the largest in the country, is usually open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

on a side note, my nice, but conspiracy freak/religious nutcase former neighbor started texting me anti vax nonsense after not hearing a word from him in 5 years. He's blocked now, that's fer sure.

it's one thing to be anti-vax and not get the shot yourself. it's a whole other level of messed up to stop others from exercising their choice to get the shot.

LAPD had no trouble kettling (corralling) BLM demonstrators - today they just locked the gates and stood around while protesters denied people the vaccines they need. smiley-gen081

the idea that paddy wagons, water cannons and rubber bullets need to be on standby for a vaccination site is completely bonkers.

How about arresting them? We might want to use police who have been twice vaccinated.

Ridiculous! They are entitled to their opinion on the vaccine, but they are not entitled to deny the vaccine to someone who doesn't share their views.

They should have been arrested if they blocked people from getting their vaccine. Charge them with attempted murder, since in LA these days that's about what this equates to!

This is end stage ignorance and an argument for increasing education budgets across the board.

It's all tied up. Celtics are wearing classic unis.

They drove out and plowed over a Latino community to build it.

Latinos live in every area of Los Angeles now. It's "their" town. It's literally a taco truck on every corner. I just bought a Chicken Quesadilla and 4 tamale's from King Taco a few hours ago. King Taco #24 mind you. The majority of Dodgers fans at the games are Latino. Slow clap for their sacrifice for the common good.

I'd like it to be 9mm and real bullets if they're willing to try that $h!t tomorrow at the Forum. Maybe two 14 round clips, and two more 17 round clips to help disperse the anti-vax nuts. Should be good enough to rid about five-dozen protestors from the scene, or at least make them uncomfortable enough to wish they would rid themselves from the scene. Just a passing thought....

90 days at the county work farm sounds about right.

I'm all for free speech, and the anti-vaxer's are entitled to express their views in orderly fashion; but shutting down our Mega-Pods is its own form of insurrection, and needs to be dealt with, with extreme  prejudice. 90 days at the county work farm is not nearly harsh enough.

Considering that they're not going to do anything to those "protesters," I'll take the 90 days.

If they haven't been vaccinated, then 90 days in the farm might turn out to be surprisingly harsh.

Unsurprisingly, organized on FB despite FB’s earlier stated intent to crack down on @#$%& groups, one of which linked to a site in its About page that linked to Plandemic.

FB’s meager efforts only go so far, and then 50 morons disrupt public vaccinations.

These FB pages are run like anti-abortion pages, highlighting videos of asshats accosting people.
