Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) lifted the COVID-19 booster requirement for state employees, including ferry workers and state troopers.
“Inslee dropped the booster requirement in on Aug. 5, but said all state employees must still be fully vaccinated with the two-shot regimen of Pfizer or Moderna, or the single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine,” FOX 13 Seattle reported.

Did the science change?
The political science.
Instead of mandating the COVID-19 booster, Gov. Inslee’s administration will bribe state employees to receive additional doses of the toxic shots.
From FOX 13 Seattle:
One difference in the Aug. 5 directive hints at instituting an ‘incentive’ to stay vaccinated and get boosted.
The new language reads, “I direct [the Office of Financial Management] to pursue options to incentivize all state executive and small cabinet agency employees to remain fully vaccinated with the most up-to-date vaccination, including any additional doses or boosters, as recommended by the CDC.”
“I think the incentive is going to come in the form of compensation or a bonus,” said Elizabeth Hovde with the Washington Policy Center.
She believes Inslee is feeling political pressure from labor unions, who have been using vaccinations as a bargaining issue.
“The governor is in negotiations now with labor unions, and that seems to be directing the course,” said Hovde. “It’s not the fact that so many people have lost their careers because of the mandate.”
She’s critical of vaccination mandates in general, believing it’s a personal choice and should not be made a condition of employment. The vaccines lessen the chance of severe illness, as well as transmission through exhaling, coughing or sneezing droplets containing the virus—the window for viral shedding, and general viral load, is reduced.
The surge in infections from the Delta or Omicron variants have called into question the effectiveness of vaccines reducing viral transmission.
“What people who don’t want to take the vaccines or boosters want is the end of the rule, not something to be negotiated or get incentives or not [get] incentives, this is about a personal health decision,” Hovde said.
Inslee’s dropping of the booster mandate comes on the heels of the CDC relaxing its COVID-19 guidance.
“CDC guidelines have been revised and COVID rules have been relaxed. The new guidance lifts the requirement to quarantine if exposed to the virus, deemphasizes screening people with no symptoms and updates COVID-19 protocols in schools,” NPR tweeted.
The update isn't a huge overhaul of the existing guidance, but it does represent an increasing focus on individuals making their own decisions about their level of risk and how they want to mitigate that risk, said Dr. Marcus Plescia, chief medical officer for the @ASTHO. pic.twitter.com/GDEd1twhzi

The CDC’s new COVID-19 guidance focuses on ‘individual decisions.’
How about that?
They emphasize a person’s individual choices that work best for them, as they should have the entire plandemic.
The guidance states:
- Those exposed to the virus are no longer required to quarantine.
- Unvaccinated people now have the same guidance as vaccinated people.
- Students can stay in class after being exposed to the virus.
- It’s no longer recommended to screen those without symptoms.
If Gov. Inslee really ‘followed the science,’ then the COVID-19 jab mandate should be eliminated in its entirety.
Workers fired for their refusal to take the toxic shots should be REHIRED with BACKPAY!
