The Saginaw Township Community Schools (STCS) recently shut down after several staff members suffered adverse reactions following their booster shots against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).
The school posted on its Facebook page: “A large number of our staff had negative reactions to the COVID booster shot given at a clinic over the weekend, resulting in absences today (Monday). As you may be aware, there is already a substitute teacher/staff shortage throughout the state of Michigan, further complicating the availability to cover those absences.”
Saginaw Township district representative explained that the closure was not due to COVID illnesses, but rather the side effects of the booster vaccines. The school did not say which vaccine was administered, nor did they elaborate on the specific side effects and the exact number of teachers affected.
STCS said that parents of the students who have contact with the affected staff members were contacted “as quickly” as possible regarding this decision.
Booster shots have already been approved by the federal government for adults who received their initial COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson. (Related: Vaccine mandates leading to massive shortage of 911 staff, putting Americans’ lives in danger.)
In a statement, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky said: “These recommendations are another example of our fundamental commitment to protect as many people as possible from COVID-19. The evidence shows that all three COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States are safe — as demonstrated by the over 400 million vaccine doses already given. And, they are all highly effective in reducing the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, even in the midst of the widely circulating delta variant.”
A draft list from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed that possible reactions stemming from the Pfizer and Moderna boosters are pain at the injection site, fatigue, muscle pain, headache, fever, chills and nausea. The list didn’t mention myocarditis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, seizures and even death.
The CDC’s data recently showed that among 12,500 individuals who received the third shot of the COVID-19 vaccine, 79 percent reported local reactions such as pain and itching at the injection site, while 74 percent reported systemic reactions such as muscle pain and fatigue.
Michigan continues to log high COVID cases
Over the past week, Michigan alone reported over 34,000 new cases – the second-largest number among all states, according to the CDC.
Michigan’s seven-day average case rate is 346 cases per day per 100,000 residents, with an average testing positivity ranging between 10 to 15 percent and over 294,000 diagnostic tests being performed in the same period.
The state remains in the high community transmission category, which is defined by the CDC as those that average at least 100 new cases per day per 100,000 population. Michigan’s seven-day average case rate is the eighth highest in the country, with all 83 counties remaining in the high community transmission category.
The state has at least 5.6 million residents who already received at least the first dose of the vaccine. Vaccine coverage rates are 0.22 percent for children aged five through eleven, 42 percent for ages 12 to 15, 49 percent for the 16 to 19 age group, 48 percent for 20 to 29 and 59 percent for those aged 30 to 39.
Many are struggling in this economy. My family is among them. Please support what we’re doing here and help us to continue to spread the truth Americans need to read and hear.
Vaccination rates are at 61 percent for those aged 40 to 49, 72 percent for 50 to 64, 87 percent for ages 65 to 74 and 83 percent for those over 75 years old.
There had been over 800,000 booster shots administered statewide, most of which were given to residents 50 years and older.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
