Imagine guinea pigging your 1 year old baby to be in a big pharma study.

Imagine intentionally exposing your child to the known risk of long term brain damage, lung damage, heart damage, and kidney damage because you have an irrational fear of the single most tested vaccine in human history.

Feel free to sign you infant up for it, but from the CDC: "the risk of complications for healthy children is higher for flu compared to covid-19."

The 'most tested vaccine' in history has immunity for the makers and the long term side effects are unknown.

And the risk of vaccination has been overwhelmingly demonstrated to be zero. With the enormous sample size of vaccinated individuals, the long term side effects are well known - absolutely not a single one in children.

What we do know, is 25 per 100,000 children under two who contract COVID will be hospitalized and 1 in 3 of those children will be in ICU. That is a known fact.

Since you are a believer in CDC information (you are quoting it as an authority after all), "COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective."

Stop spreading irrational fear because you do not understand basic science or statistics.

Feel free to jab your 1 year old with Pfizer rna juice - hopefully they avoid the heart inflammation blood clots for a virus less deadly for them than the seasonal flu :')

There has not been a single incident of blood clots in children.

You have an irrational fear of a non-existant risk due to your inability to grasp basic science and statistics. Stop spending your time spreading your ignorance and go get a basic education.

Sure have been. Was reading forbes, check out the article "Oxford Pauses Trial Of AstraZeneca Vaccine In Children, Teens Amid Blood Clot Concerns" and The Hill: CDC to hold 'emergency meeting' on heart inflammation after COVID-19 vaccines.

No need to come off as arrogant, as it seems insecure and aggressive we're just having a friendly discussion. Enjoy your evening :)

@buklau,

Children get vaccines for the seasonal flu. Those vaccines are less risky than influenza. Just like the covid-19 vaccines are less risky than covid-19.

We should be thankful to all vaccine clinical trial participants. Buklau, the incidents that the articles in Forbes and the Hill report on demonstrate that these trials are monitored. Even aspirin has deadly side effect of bleeding. You take a few too many Advil’s and your kidneys can stop working. All drugs have side effects and we need clinical trials to understand the safety and efficacy profiles of drugs and make decision on dosing for children vs. adults, etc.

I agree with Mike, go get some basic education.
