This is what i don't understand, anti vax people will get their kids vaccinated in order for them to attend school but get upset with the Covid  mandates.

But you don't have to get vaxed to go to school, you can get a waiver for that also. So, ture anti-vaxxers don't get the vaccines for schools either.

When did it feel safe for those who lived during polio times? This info might help. 

Polio is an infectious disease, contracted predominantly by children, that can lead to the permanent paralysis of various body parts and can ultimately cause death by immobilizing the patient’s breathing muscles.

No cure exists for the symptoms, but in the 1950s effective vaccines were developed and have been used around the world since then. This allowed some richer countries to eliminate the disease entirely in the 1960s and 70s. But large outbreaks continued around the world and in the 1980s the estimated global number of paralytic cases was over 350,000 per year and the disease was still prevalent in 125 countries. As a response the “Global Polio Eradication Initiative” (GPEI) was founded in 1988 to fight the virus’s spread and disease burden with a global vaccination campaign. Since then the world has made rapid progress against the disease and until 2016 the number of paralytic cases was reduced by 99.99% with 42 cases in that year worldwide. The latest data on the number of polio cases is always up-to-date here.

As of 2017 the virus remains in circulation in only three countries in the world – Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria – and it is hoped that the disease will soon be eradicated globally.

If you get the polio vaccine can you still catch and spread polio?

They've only mandated masks. Haven't heard of anymore shutdowns.

I have in other states and countries.  New Zealand finally pulled there second one about a month ago, because they finally realized that lockdowns were not effective as the alleged "science" told them.  The only states now that have restrictions are Hawaii no vaccination required, but only 50% capacity.  California and New York currently have vaccine mandates for entering any business or working out of your home.  There may be other blue states that also have those mandates, but I don't feel like looking them up.
