Teenage males are statistically more at risk from the RNA vaccine than covid itself:

I am vaccinated and not an anti-vaxer, but you have to look at the data. Kids and Pro athletes are not causing rural and city hospitals to buckle.

Unelected officials' arbitrary mandates and lockdowns of specific sectors have caused distrust and frustration in an already stressful situation.

Forcing Andrew Wiggins or my six-year-old to get the Vaccine will only fuel the frustration of many data-driven Americans.

@buklau,

That deeply flawed "study" has been widely debunked.

Teenage males are more at risk from the virus than they are from vaccines.

Bill Brasky,

They really are looking at the data at the FDA and CDC panels. Also the American Academy of Pediatrics and many other groups are carefully studying the data.

People cherry pick preprint studies to validate preconceived notions or advanced anti-vax agendas. I would look at the recommendations of the major medical groups and look at the data they're using also. They are being thorough and prudent in my opinion.

BobB,

The Vaccines haven’t been the sledgehammer to knock out the virus completely; too many variants and breakthrough cases. The data shows it lowers the viral load and increases your chance of not going to ICU.

Why should individuals in the lowest risk group be mandated to lower their viral load if they are not the group impacting hospitalizations?

1) CDC says: "the risk of complications for healthy children is higher for flu compared to covid-19" (page 6)

2) These jabs aren't getting rid of covid. Israel, Iceland, and UK are top %s in vax rates per capita and have seen surges of covid cases.

3) Children are the lowest risk group for covid, with over a 99.9999% survival rate for teenagers.

First they are mandating it for 12 year olds and next the are mandating it for 5-11 year olds.

Why are we jabbing our children who are the lowest risk group for a virus less deadly for them than the common flu?

Please don’t respond BobB because you utilize disinformation to obstruct anyone who reads or listens to anyone that isn’t on your Cable list.


That said, I encourage every parent to do their due diligence and research sources that are outside the recommended offerings from this government. These are not the vaccines that you have given your children in the past. They behave differently. Remember, vaccines of the past have an enormous long life to them, as in decades. This experimental gene therapy is shown to last only 6 months and thus the need for the boosters. Boosters are beginning to be projected as every 6 months to 18 months. This will never go away based on this approach.

Be informed.

Funny how teachers and union members who held education hostage last yr are now rallying against this……but they want “you” to get it.

Can’t make this stuff up folks

@Jake Waters,

You said "This experimental gene therapy..." That is a complete lie. It is a falsehood. It is not gene therapy in any way, shape or form.

"... sources that are outside the recommended offerings ..."

Stay away from quacks and crackpots.

Again, I ask you. What are you doing here? Are trying to talk people out of getting a vaccine that could save their lives or keep them out of the hospital? In the middle of a pandemic? Is that your goal?

@buklau,

The seasonal flu, also know as influenza, is dangerous for children (as is COVID-19). Annual flu shots are recommended for everyone from 6 month old infants up to seniors. It needs a boost every year. We do give children annual flu shots.
