  1. I must tell you the truth. A real big professional Doctor told me that those Covid shots that we all took including myself, it is causing many many people to have all kinds of vision issues, many people are no longer being able to see clearly the way they were seeing before Covid. Call up now any office that does eye surgery, I want to see if you are able to get an appointment for eye surgery before the month of April, almost impossible.
    The Covid shots ruined many eyes.
    Since our eyesight got worse, PLEASE do not make a trip at night. You can go to the Kever during the day.
    Poor vision + NIGHT time driving = DISASTER
    I am not allowed to say the name of the doctor because he is afraid that he may have lots of complications and issues with the government. They may even take away his license. He asked me not to mention the name.

  2. I don’t know any details of this story but it’s still important to bear in mind: These vans are flimsy sardine cans on wheels. They are notoriously unsafe & many terrible stories have happened over the last years. Every camp & Yeshiva needs to be sure that the driver’s of these vans understand how unstable they become at high speeds, especially on mountain roads. My son’s camp had a 21 year old driving a van full of campers at 100 mph. B”H nothing happened, but every van driver needs to realize the dangers of driving a vanload of people at high speeds. May Hashem heal the wounded bochurim.
