vaccine for those under 30. All the while, we are all giddy about jabbing 8 year olds with unproven vaccines.
The amount of idiocy with these vaccines is amazing.
.004% of my States childhood age population has had to be hospitalized. But hey, lets jab them with this #### that we have no clue how it might or might not effect these kids. We have to save that .004% at all costs. Even if it means killing .005%.
There are 28 million kids between the ages of 5-11 in the US. There have been 96 deaths in this age group from COVID most of whom had comorbid conditions. I agree that a compelling reason needs to be made as to why vaccinating all young kids is the proper policy.
I haven't seen the data to support the risk/benefit ratio in vaccinating kids. Maybe it's out there? Certainly vaccinating kids would decrease kids being a vector for spread in the general population, but most vulnerable adults are vaccinated and many kids already have some degree of natural immunity.
I haven't looked hard at the risk/benefit ratio in kids, as my children are adults, but I fully understand some of the concern over vaccinating kids.
This article admits that nothing is peer reviewed and everything reads with a “early data suggests” disclaimer. And then gets into possible, but unproven, reasons why that should work. Those include- vaxed folks are less likely to carry covid so logically they are less likely to spread it AND when vaxed do get covid they have less of a viral load so that is less likely to spread. So the way I read it is there is nothing inherently in the vax to keep you from spreading at the same rate other than trying to make you less likely to get it in the first place and then reducing the severity of your case if you do.
was to prevent hospitalization and death due to actual Covid infection. The equally important utility, if not even moreso, is to prevent the transmission of Covid in the first place. Because vaccinated people can catch and transmit Covid, does NOT mean that vaccinated people are just as likely to catch and transmit the virus as the unvaccinated. I have no idea how that came to be the conventional wisdom in all of this.
How is something that over 3,000,000,000 people worldwide have taken, "experimental"? Vaccines, by nature, don't have long-term effects. mRNA vax tech, like live virus vaccines, doesn't last indefinitely.
