Center for Disease Control (CDC) Director Rochelle P. Walensky has given the authorization for vaccinations to begin in 5 to 11-year-olds starting tomorrow. You can review the CDC press release HERE. According to the CDC announcement, Walensky states: “We know millions of parents are eager to get their children vaccinated and with this decision, we now have recommended that about 28 million children receive a COVID-19 vaccine.”
Unfortunately, the CDC authorization now gives cover to various blue state democrats who will likely mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for public school children. However, despite the CDC position, it is worth noting the recent survey by NBC showing only 27% of parents would vaccinate their kids under 12:
… 64% of people with children under age 11 say they would not vaccinate their kids or would wait to see more data on long term consequences. Only 27% of respondents said they would immediately vaccinate their children with the untested COVID vaccine. (more)
It is very reasonable for parents to question the FDA approval and the political intents of the CDC in authorizing this vaccination for children 3 to 11. The risk to children from the virus itself is virtually nonexistent. However, despite the low risk the government is recommending, perhaps soon to be mandating, a little tested vaccine for a population that is not at any significant level of health risk.
If the Virginia election result teaches the Biden administration that protecting kids is important to parents on the issue of education…. they haven’t seen anything yet, when it comes to the response from parents to vaccinating kids with an untested vaccine. Madness.
