San Francisco will force children as young as 5-years-old to show a vaccine passport to enter a restaurant and other indoor venues, officials have announced.
After imposing similar mandates for children over 12 back in August, authorities are set to make the same demands of even younger children after the the CDC granted emergency approval to kids aged 5-11 to get the Pfizer-BioNTech shot.
This will likely cause further controversy and opposition given that a significant number of parents have asserted that they won’t let their child take the vaccine.
One poll found that a third of parents would “definitely not” allow their child to take the jab, with only 27 per cent of parents indicating they would let their kid get vaccinated “right away.”
Children account for less than 0.1 per cent of all COVID deaths in America, with many warning that the risks posed by the vaccine could outweigh the risk of them getting the virus.
