Association of Alaska School Boards: ‘No Covid vax, no attending events’

gif ad for must read alaska donations

The Association of Alaska School Boards has a new vaccine passport policy for its upcoming events, academics, and conferences: If school board members don’t have a vaccine, they cannot attend the event.

“AASB is committed to making our in-person events safe, as your health, well-being, and safety are our top priority. To that end, a COVID mitigation plan has been developed for all upcoming academies and conferences,” the policy states. 

“Therefore, all attendees are required to submit proof of vaccination to register and attend the event. For those with a medical exemption, we will work with each individual independently, which may include requiring a negative COVID test.

“In addition, we will also be requiring everyone to wear a mask while indoors at the event except for those times when you are eating or drinking,” AASB states on its web page. There is no stated end date for this policy, nor explanation of whether a booster shot will be required at some point.

The group’s annual meeting will be held next on Nov. 8 at the Anchorage Hilton.

  • Ok. Who is practicing medicine without a license? Show of hands? Who has a license to prescribe diagnostic tests? Who is impersonating an md? Anything goes evidently.

  • The governor needs to step up his game and veto funding to these school districts until they end these fascist campaigns of facial coverings & mandatory DNA altering “therapies”.

    • Amen, they waste so much of our tax payer dollars.

    • You probably should spend more time researching or talking to health professionals, and less time relying on lies and misinformation. Schools have total control of clothing requirements on campus. Been that way a long time. You never minded before. And Vaccines have been required by schools for decades. At one time, vaccines were patriotic. Now, it’s just the “waaahhhh, I’m afraid” crowd that opposes such commonsense measures.

      Either way, the governor has no business telling schools how to run their schools.

      • Ha ha, comparing forced masking to a dress code. Ridiculous!
        And actually, it is the “baaaahhhhh, I’m a vaxxed sheep and you must become one too” crowd who refuse to listen to the science that shows us that masks are ineffective and that the experimental vaccine has innate dangers. A pushy, nazi-like group they are, too.
        The governor may not be able to tell schools what to do, but he can sure withhold funding.

      • There’s never been a “patriotic”cause for vaccinations in schools George. Mandating anything in this country has always been considered sac religious. From taxes to seatbelts, Americans have been fighting against government mandates since the beginning. Challenging authority is as American as it gets. Americans used to know that the more a government mandates the more it mandates. It never ends and the power to mandate is always cloaked in “public safety”, “public good”, “patriotic duty”, “personal safety”, guilt and fear. To believe government knows best is ignorant at best. People of power only want one thing and that is more power and security which is only accomplished by having a foot on the neck of the people in their charge. People’s freedoms are an obstacle.
        The fear you speak of, is the people who are scared of a Virus that has a 99.7% survivable rate and believe the government fear mongering. The ones not getting the vaccine are eyes wide open of the government lies, not fear of vaccine, wise to government overstepping their authority.

  • This is a great opportunity to start weeding out these leftists from government.

  • Exhibit “A” for the case of ensuring vouchers for parents who actually seek an education for their children.

  • We should force these people to take some magic mushrooms so they can expand their pathetically narrow awareness. For the greater good of our collective consciousness.

  • Private school.

    Parents- Just get your kids out. It’s a lost cause. Let it burn. There’s nothing left to salvage but the most important thing ever associated with the public school system: the children. Do NOT waste another moment..get them out.

    • The wife had a child of one of her coworkers in the office. He was doing math work, when she asked if he knew what PEMDAS was(he’s in middle school) he said “what’s that” and later “what’s an exponent”. That finally convinced my wife we are homeschooling our kids.

      • I graduated in 88 and I don’t know what “PEMDAS” is and took Trig and Calculus in high school. I guess I never needed to. Amazing what we set for standards of success.

      • Keep your inbred and arrogant California gatekeeping to yourself or get out because it doesn’t sound like you’re going to last real long here in AK.

  • Papers, please.

    The swamp would like to have a word with you.

    This is 1930s Germany stuff. Covid has replaced the National Socialists, and unvaccinated/maskless are the new Jews.

    This ends really badly people. Really badly.

  • I sit on an Alaskan School Board and informed the Executive Director of AASB that I would not attend events under those conditions. I have no issue with the vaccine and think it is great that such options are now available to people. I do have issue with an organization that requires me to take it or not participate in the events to which my Board has paid to be a part of. If I go to a hospital and don’t fill out the HIPA form correctly my own wife can’t find out if I’ve had an aspirin or not. And these folks expect me to just volunteer a medical status to attend a meeting. These rules requiring proof of vaccination and the wearing of masks have nothing to do with safety of me or others and everything to do with political correctness and herd mentality.

    • “These rules requiring proof of vaccination and the wearing of masks have nothing to do with safety of me or others and everything to do with political correctness and herd mentality.”
      You can say that 1000 times!
      But it also has to do with government and corporations (is there any real difference?) exercising arbitrary power over individuals, and instilling in them a kneejerk conformity and compliance to unjust power. AS WELL AS virtue-signaling, as you say.

  • Are they also going to test to see if people have natural immunities? Or are we not into following ALL science?

  • And we are still waiting on good guv to outlaw vaccine mandates. Crickets.

  • Lord have mercy.
    I know of 2 pregnant woman who fell for their agenda. Both women lost their children! That is genocide! Can you not see it?!!!!

    • We MRAK readers all see two mothers are only two out of thousand known cases of misscarriages because of the shots. There are a few MRAK dissenters who out of their own selfishness can care-less over someone else’s loss since it’s not their own loss.
      I am waiting how many or how little babies I will see next year. I am waiting to see those still alive after the shots discover hearing reports through family and friends telling they someone who may have discovered they might been neutered when coming to a time they want a baby, and they can’t get pregnant.

      • We MRAK readers we all see the two mothers are only two out of thousand of known cases of misscarriages occurring because of the shots. They aren’t alone. There are a few MRAK dissenters though who out of their own selfishness can care-less over someone else’s loss since it’s not their own loss, yet.
        I am waiting how many or how little babies I will see next year. I am waiting to see those still alive after the shots discover after hearing reports through family and friends telling they know someone who may have discovered they might been neutered when coming to a time they want a baby, and they can’t get pregnant.

      • Jen,
        I realize I specified 2 that I know of. You are correct, there are thousands of deaths (a miscarriage is a death as well). I am bracing for impact.
        It is sad because there is word now, “Based on CDC’s guidance,, AK DHSS are recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive the additional dose. People who are moderately to severely immunocompromised are especially vulnerable. Good grief!
        People that are not awake need to wake the fork up!

    • Hysterical much? Genocide?

      Another public school grad

      • Mask.
        Tick tok.

  • Weeks ago now, I cautioned everyone on this board that this sort of thing was coming. Well it’s here now and you’re going to have to deal with it. There’s going to come a time when they are tired of dealing with this and all the begging and pleading will stop. They’re going to say that you done it to yourself and wash their hands of you. Yes yes we’ve all heard it kills babies and it poisoned you and it’s experimental and all that blah blah blah. That doesn’t matter. They’re not forcing you to get a shot. At this point I think they don’t care if you get a shot anymore. What does matter is it’s now going to affect your daily lives and I hope you can live with that.

    • Wow, Greg, welcome back. Did you mom let you start using the internet again?

    • Hey Greg, you were gone so long, that must have been one H-LL of a long line to get your 45th booster jab!

    • I wonder what will happen first…will the “vaccinated” begin dying in large numbers as the spike protein proliferates within their bodies or will the “vaccine hesitant” suddenly begin dying from a virus that has a better than 99.8% overall survival rate?
      The unvaccinated can always run out and get the jab but the “vaccinated” can never become unvaccinated.
      The jab is forever and it gets worse because now world health authorities are pushing booster shots because the original shots don’t last.
      It’s nothing like a real vaccine, say, like the polio vaccine that lasts a lifetime.
      No, you’re going to be lining up every few months for your next shot…does that seem reasonable?
      Each booster is another role of the dice with your health and your life.
      The risk adverse will hang back and wait to see what happens.
      I’m betting that the “vaccinated” will begin dying of strokes, heart attacks and other cardiovascular diseases unrelated to Covid but directly related to the spike proteins that their bodies have been tricked into producing by the billions.
      Some of the medical studies on the blood of the “vaccinated” are frightening.
      Just the accepted fact that the mRNA injected into the muscle mass of the upper arm has migrated into the test subjects bloodstreams against the expectations of the medical experts and authorities who authorized this experimental gene therapy for emergency use should scare everyone who offered their bodies to medical experimentation.
      If they got something that basic completely wrong what else did they get wrong? Nobody knows, literally, because they skipped all the normal testing protocols.
      Maybe they didn’t actually skip the medium and long term testing at all because that’s what is currently ongoing and the results are starting to come in…they don’t look good for the test subjects.
      Greg…go get a thorough blood test and post your results. Are your red blood cells starting to clump together in long strings? That’s what is happening in quite a few other test animals. Are your RBCs misshapen? Are there microclots? Tell your doctor to look for these things. Really, do it and set your mind at ease or confirm our worst fears.
      Good luck and keep us posted for as long as you can.

    • Take note! Greg cautioned us!

  • Well, they are certainly an uneducated group for being people who have a say in the world of education.
    Did they not hear that with having the jab one can still get and transmit Covid? Who are we protecting with passports? They are acting like children who found a new toy except that their “playing” is control of others.
    The only disease that needs stopping is the dangerous precedent of jab passports.

    • All this medical fascism surrounding the very mild pandemic of the Wuhan Virus has NOTHING to do with virology, or public health, or science, and everything to do with power and control, and stripping individuals of many of their (our) formerly exercised rights — to travel freely, to not have to “show papers” everywhere we go, and basically to live in sane world free of establishment propaganda and fearmongering.

  • Vaccinated people are testing positive and getting sick. Those with antibodies aren’t. It’s funny how over a century of virology studies get tossed out the window. Oh well, get a note from your doctor saying you can’t get the vaccine and bring a bottle of water so you can keep your mask down.

    • Jim, most people “with antibodies” don’t know for sure they have them. Relying on the “I think I had COVID before” and then not getting tested doesn’t mean they got COVID to begin with and it certainly doesn’t mean they are more immune than those who are vaccined. It’s speculative at best. Talk to a doctor.

      • Gawd! I can’t count the times doctors have been wrong about so many things. An honest doc will admit how little they actually can be certain about. There is a very good reason for malpractice insurance.

  • Its getting rough. we unvaccinated better start working toward creating little pockets of small communities where we help one another like the little Italy, little China, little Orthodox Jewish, little Amish communities, and a now new one little unvaccinated covid community. Hahaha.
    Soon enough they going to deny our access to the supermarket!
    Good thing I don’t have too much pride If I had to go join the Hope Center Soup line, The Anchorage Gospel Mission, the Sullivan Arena, Food Bank for food; as well as pick Alaskan edibles and learn to preserve the plants for winter. Then there is always a fishing pole for catching meat.

    • Jen it may certainly come to this. I lost my $40/hr job this week after working there for 15 years for not taking the jab. When we got the notice, almost all said they would quit, however almost none have actionable principles and are easily persuaded over money and fold. If they all would have quit though, I believe the employer would change his tune, but no such luck. Most people just talk tough, exactly why we are where we are as a country.

  • SARS-CoV-2—which has been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier in mice and cause many kinds of heart, blood vessel, and brain damage—has a spike protein on its surface, allowing the virus to infect our bodies. Likewise, research within the scientific community also reveals various cardiovascular and heart problems, bleeding, and clotting when studying the disease in humans. That same research also establishes that the spike protein alone is almost entirely responsible for damage to the cardiovascular system if circulating in the body.
    Do some independent research into the mRNA “vaccines” before offering yourself up as a lab rat.

  • Essentially, the assumption behind COVID-19 vaccines is their ability to enable the cells in our bodies to produce spike protein. When an immune response is launched against the spike protein, the virus stops infecting the body. At first glance, this information seems relatively straightforward. When administered, COVID-19 vaccines are injected into the shoulder muscle—not into the blood. Until recently, Dr. Bridle notes that the opinion has been these vaccines function like traditional vaccines and remain near the injection site. Bridle details further, explaining:

    “The assumption until now has been that these vaccines behave like all of our traditional vaccines; that they don’t go anywhere, they stay in our shoulder. Some of the protein will go to the local draining lymph node in order to activate the immune system.”
    Shockingly, according to Bridle, the COVID-19 vaccine is different from traditional vaccines. For the first time ever, the Japanese Regulatory Agency recently gave Bridle and several international collaborators access to a study called “the Bio-Distribution Study.” The groundbreaking research presents scientists with a more reliable understanding of where COVID-19 messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines travel in the body after being injected. Bridle explains the study absolutely refutes the premise that the COVID-19 vaccine stays in the shoulder muscle, asserting:

    “The short answer—is absolutely not. It’s very disconcerting. The spike protein gets into the blood, circulates through the blood in individuals over several days post-vaccination. Once it gets in the blood, it accumulates in a number of tissues such as the spleen, the bone marrow, the liver, the adrenal glands. And of particular concern for me is it accumulates in the ovaries, in quite high concentrations.”

  • Moreover, a scientific paper just accepted for publication in the Oxford University Press for the Infectious Diseases Society of America supports this frightening hypothesis. The research examined thirteen young healthcare workers who had received the Moderna vaccine. Scientists discovered the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein circulating in the blood of eleven of the thirteen healthcare workers. Bridle emphasized that the spike protein could cross the blood-brain barrier, causing neurological damage, explaining why fatal blood clots are often seen in the brain. Elaborating on the implications of these findings, he remarked:

    “We have known for a long time that the spike protein is a pathogenic protein. It is a toxin that can cause damage in our body if it gets into circulation. Now, we have clear-cut evidence that the vaccines that make the cells in our deltoid muscles manufacture this protein, [we now know] the vaccine itself plus the protein gets into blood circulation. When in circulation, the spike protein can bind to the receptors that are on our platelets and the cells that line our blood vessels. When that happens, it can do one of two things: it can either cause platelets to clump, and that can lead to clotting—that’s exactly why we’ve been seeing clotting disorders associated with these vaccines. It can also lead to bleeding, and of course, the heart is involved, which is part of the cardiovascular system, so that is why we are seeing heart problems.”
    Additionally, according to Bridle, an alarming study not yet accepted for publication that initially attempted to verify that antibodies from the vaccine get transferred through breast milk (suggesting some protection for babies), instead inadvertently discovered the mRNA vaccine spike proteins are transferred through the breast milk, thus passing the COVID-19 vaccine vector itself into breastfeeding infants. Since any protein in the blood will concentrate in breast milk, observing that the spike protein gets into circulation is even more disturbing. Bridle maintains the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database presents evidence of breastfeeding infants encountering bleeding disorders in the gastrointestinal tract.

  • Ivermectin is a macrolide antiparasitic drug with a 16-membered ring that is widely used for the treatment of many parasitic diseases such as river blindness, elephantiasis and scabies. Satoshi ōmura and William C. Campbell won the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the discovery of the excellent efficacy of ivermectin against parasitic diseases. Recently, ivermectin has been reported to inhibit the proliferation of several tumor cells by regulating multiple signaling pathways. This suggests that ivermectin may be an anticancer drug with great potential. Here, we reviewed the related mechanisms by which ivermectin inhibited the development of different cancers and promoted programmed cell death and discussed the prospects for the clinical application of ivermectin as an anticancer drug for neoplasm therapy.
    Hopefully the narrow minded on these comments will do some research into ivermectin and will stop referring to it as a horse dewormer that has no human applications. Probably not though unless their TV tells them to…

    • Indeed, the narrow minded and the open minded alike should inform themselves.
      Merck is the developer and manufacturer of Ivermectin. The big pharma group Merck had this to say about their drug Ivermectin concerning covid:
      Merck (NYSE: MRK), known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, today affirmed its position regarding use of ivermectin during the COVID-19 pandemic. Company scientists continue to carefully examine the findings of all available and emerging studies of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19 for evidence of efficacy and safety. It is important to note that, to-date, our analysis has identified:
      No scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect against COVID-19 from pre-clinical studies;
      No meaningful evidence for clinical activity or clinical efficacy in patients with COVID-19 disease, and;
      A concerning lack of safety data in the majority of studies.
      We do not believe that the data available support the safety and efficacy of ivermectin beyond the doses and populations indicated in the regulatory agency-approved prescribing information.
      They also offer the following:
      Warnings and Precautions
      Patients treated with STROMECTOL for onchocerciasis may experience cutaneous and/or systemic reactions of varying severity (the Mazzotti reaction) and ophthalmological reactions.
      After treatment with microfilaricidal drugs, patients with hyperreactive onchodermatitis (sowda) may be more likely than others to experience severe adverse reactions, especially edema and aggravation of onchodermatitis.
      Rarely, patients with onchocerciasis who are also heavily infected with Loa loa may develop a serious or even fatal encephalopathy either spontaneously or following treatment with an effective microfilaricide. In these patients, the following adverse experiences have also been reported: pain (including neck and back pain), red eye, conjunctival hemorrhage, dyspnea, urinary and/or fecal incontinence, difficulty in standing/walking, mental status changes, confusion, lethargy, stupor, seizures, or coma. In individuals who warrant treatment with ivermectin for any reason and have had significant exposure to Loa loa-endemic areas of West or Central Africa, pretreatment assessment for loiasis and careful post-treatment follow-up should be implemented.
      Best of luck to those who use a feed store anti-parasitic designed for animals. If your doctor prescribes this medicine in human dosage for covid, good luck being a human trial, the very thing you are trying not to be…

      • How do you spot the close minded? They willfully ignore valid information that contradicts their worldview…like the fact that ivermectin has been prescribed for internal human use almost 4 BILLION times. Steve-o, the intellectually limited, still falls back on the “It’s a horse dewormer!” stupidity. Stupid is as stupid foes, Stevie.

        • PJ,
          Still having trouble reading what I wrote, I see. Nowhere did I ignore that ivermectin has been prescribed for human use, nowhere. Nowhere did I say “It’s a horse dewormer!” as you quoted me as saying, nowhere. Go read what I wrote again…it’s still there.
          I posted what the manufacturer has to say about their product and you willfully ignore it…kind like you said “How do you spot the close minded? They willfully ignore valid information that contradicts their worldview…”

          • My sincere apology for the horse dewormer thing, Steve…haha…here’s what you ACTUALLY wrote: “
            Best of luck to those who use a feed store anti-parasitic designed for animals.”
            Totally different…haha.

          • PJ,
            No worries. I understand that your emotions are running high and with all the fear coursing through your veins how you could be mistaken…haha…here’s what I wrote, including the part you decided to cut out…”Best of luck to those who use a feed store anti-parasitic designed for animals. If your doctor prescribes this medicine in human dosage for covid, good luck being a human trial, the very thing you are trying not to be…”
            Totally different indeed.

        Head of Tokyo Medical Association says “now is the time” for all covid patients to get ivermectin, not vaccines
        Earlier this year, Haruo Ozaki, chairman of the Tokyo Metropolitan Medical Association, issued a plea for the expanded use of ivermectin to treat the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).
        Much like the current situation in the United States, Japanese authorities are hesitant to support the use of ivermectin, despite numerous scientific papers showing it to be a safe and effective remedy for the Chinese Virus.
        Infections are spreading as more Japanese people get vaccinated, and Ozaki is urging the Japanese government to issue its version of an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the drug, which has been in widespread use as a remedy for parasites for many decades.
        Despite having originated in Japan, ivermectin is still something of a taboo treatment there, probably because it is inexpensive, safe and effective – and thus does not generate massive profits for the pharmaceutical cartels.
        “When the number of people waiting at home and receiving medical treatment increased sharply in the third wave of January, this was no good, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Medical Association worked together to build a system with the goal of 24-hour support,” Ozaki told Yomiuri, a Japanese media outlet.
        “We are now able to handle up to 37 of the 47 district medical associations. However, the current situation where more than 1000 home caregivers are piled up every day is beyond the limit. Vaccination, medical examination, home visit, etc. are not available. Now, the health center is coordinating hospitalization. There is also a hospitalization coordinating center in Tokyo, but there is a system that can quickly accept and treat suddenly changed corona patients. I haven’t gotten to the point of being established.”
        Ozaki says he is aware of “many papers” that support the safe and effective use of ivermectin in treating the Fauci Flu
        Instead of continuing to inject people with experimental drugs that have never been proven safe or effective, why not give ivermectin a try?
        All throughout Central and South America, doctors are administering ivermectin with great success. The drug is also being used in India with similar success to help sick patients overcome the Chinese Illness for mere pennies, which is easing the strain on health systems.
        “The vaccine is not in time,” Ozaki says. “At such an imminent time, there is a paper that ivermectin is effective for corona, so it is a natural response for clinicians to try using it. Doctor-led clinical practice — that’s why many test papers came out.”
        Rather than play politics as some are, the Japanese government, along with all other governments, have a duty to ensure that patients have safe and easy access to ivermectin if they choose to use it. Doctors should not feel intimidated or pressured not to prescribe it if it can help, as many say it can.
        Many patients are dying because hospitals are refusing to give them ivermectin, which one could argue is a crime against humanity. There is no reason why ivermectin should remain off limits if it has the potential to quell cases and restore normalcy to society.
        Ozaki points to a recent paper out of India which found that administering 0.3 mg / kg of ivermectin twice at three-day intervals resulted in an 83 percent reduction in new cases of the Wuhan Flu. Such results speak for themselves, he says.
        Thanks to corrupt influence from the likes of Merck & Co., which supplies drugs like ivermectin to Japan, accessing it for the Chinese Flu remains a challenge. Even if a patient is able to find a doctor willing to write a prescription, many pharmacies no longer have any supply of the drug.

    • Exactly. It’s been treating humans for many years. FDA approved with a great safety record.

  • Association of Alaska School Boards? Another useless quasi-government entity populated with Fascist radical Democrats attempting to further their crazy narrative! The governor should defund them, now.

  • This group is obviously a product of the public school system.

  • Why stop at proving you’re vaccinated against COVID? Measles, Tuberculosis and Polio are all far more deadly than COVID. So why aren’t we required to show proof of those vaccinations?
    Mumps? Malaria? Rubella? Where do you want to draw the line?
    Or is this really all just political gamesmanship?

  • Lou must be confronted with his heinous decisions.
    No science.
    Marxist fear porn.
    We have to hold these people accountable that are attempting to tear apart the fabric of our society.
    Where is Dunleavy?
    Where is Bronson?
    Garrison must go.

  • You won’t let me in because I refuse to take the experimental mRNA shot? Well then, I want that percentage of property taxes that funds public schools back!

  • This school board isn’t keeping up with what’s going on in Israel. You know, where over 80% of citizens have had the experimental shot. Recent news out of Israel shows that the “vaccinated” are currently having higher incidents of covid than the non “vaccinated”. So who is more dangerous?

  • Alaska Open Meetings Act, anyone?

  • There is no test for Covid as it has never been isolated. End of story.
    Btw, there is no Easter Bunny

  • If you want to actually make a difference, educate yourself via the Alphonse Faggiolo channel on TELEGRAM. Learn how to hold these “officials” personally liable AND take it to the pettyfogger, shyster attorneys representing them.
