    Why did we not see about the ingredients of the vaccines and tell the real story of the people who have had reactions to the vaccine this year? I request Dr. Jim Mercola, Dr. Russell Blaylock or Dr Gary Null to be interviewed. This show was just another “fear fest” to scare people into getting the vaccine which is NOT safe. What about the neurotoxins in the vaccine? This show was TOO one sided as usual. I did not even hear a discussion about how to stay healthy, but all about vaccines which are not proven to even work let alone be safe. I watch WFYI alot and I must say I am disappointed.
