If you watch Fox News or Newsmax and see the endless, repellent government-made commercials of frolicking children, smiling ear-to-ear, presumably because they have just been vaccinated against COVID-19, you could easily think, well, everyone’s doing it.
According to a KFF.org report dated Dec. 8 and based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Data Tracker, only 16.7 percent of 5- to 11-year-olds have received at least one shot thus far. (72.2 percent of the general U.S. population have taken at least one dose.)
What accounts for this reluctance to vaccinate the young?
Maybe a little common sense laced with knowledge. You don’t have to have read one of the estimable books on the subject by Alex Berenson, Dr. Scott Atlas, or Robert F. Kennedy Jr.—although that would help—to realize something’s awry here.
Information appears to have filtered down, including, importantly, the microscopic percentage of children that actually die from the disease. Apparently they’re dying at a lesser, or close to the same, rate as the flu. In other words, minimal.
Does this merit taking on the risk of relatively untested, especially regarding the future, mRNA technology employed by the vaccines? It depends on which “expert” you believe—the man who told us we had two weeks to stop the spread and lied about his connection to the Chinese lab that may have instigated the pandemic in the first place, or the man who actually invented mRNA vaccines?
