If you are letting your kids get injected with an mRNA vaccine at this point in time, you've lost your marbles and you're unfit to be a parent...

Not being against their vaccination, but currently I consider it still quite a hazard gambling if not at all considering lower weight, still growing or developing processes before adulthood, gender specifics and quite a lot more. Personally I would prefer they instead developed a co-vaccine especially tailored to children and their ‘parametrics’.

No, children are not die from COVID 19 but older people can catch it off my their grandchildren. Children do die from other virus if not vaccinated. I mind our grandchildren three day a week. This year alone I have contracted rhinovirus twice from our grandchildren. I am vaccinated for the annual flu and fully vaccinated for COVID 19. I did not end up in the hospital in the ICU taken up medical personal and infrastructure if I was not vaccinated. By the way I did not contract hooping cough, or any other virus from our grandchildren which they have been vaccinated for. When you have been a Parent then latter a grandparent. You see with your own eye the benefit of vaccinated and the unvaccinated. It is terrible and can cause death. When a vaccinated children would not go throw such a preventable death.

Parents don't allow it.

This "vaccine" is not necessary for healthy young people,

with perfect immune systems.

Say abso-lutely NOT!

There is no need to vaccinate the young especially when these vaccines have not been properly trialed.

We are dealing with vaccines that are EXTREMELY effective. Look at the percentages of people dying from covid that are vaccinated vs. unvaccinated. The numbers of vaccinated dying are like 1% of covid deaths.

Yet morons will claim 'but someone somewhere had a bad reaction one time and we can't trust the vaccine'.

Morons."

There definitely are some morons around who put up unvalidated tripe...Wow just wow.... Obviously you don't have children otherwise you would no doubt be a bit less moronic in your blanket statements!

Kids that young don’t need the vax it might do more harm than good. Glad my children are still 1 st graders

There are too many unanswered questions and and feel the same way, I wouldn’t let my kids get the shot, not now, not ever.

The vaccines look more dangerous than Covid for Kids!

Especially the the mRNA vaccines! Link provided so there can be no doubt!

Children aren't dying from Corona! It would be a careless parent who doesn't do research and vaccinates with a vaccine that still has no long term health effect data!

Vaccinate the old and Sick and move on!

It seems that under 12 yo are going to have to wait a bit more in many places. My company announced that it was going to vax us and our spouses and children IF the kids are over 12. So while my wife and I can get first and second jabs in August and September, our kids still have to wait.

I hope they hurry up with vaxing the under 12s. The delta variant looks like it may be more dangerous for them.
