1) CDC says the risk of serious infection is higher for common flu than omicron for kids (near 0)

2) Vaccinated people are still getting and spreading covid left and right

3) What's the purpose of RNA jabbing 1 year olds with this information?

Remember, this is still classified as ‘experimental gene therapy,’ not a vaccine. Please Pleasanton Weekly, provide the parents with the data, trial information, and overall reasoning why young children must receive this drug. Do your job as a news organization that provides facts, as opposed to behaving ‘lock step’ with this political dogma. Start acting like journalists.

Wrong- the flu hasn't killed a million people in roughly 36 months

2) Vaccinated people are still getting and spreading covid left and right

Yes, but their not dying or over flowing our hospitals

3) What's the purpose of RNA jabbing 1 year olds with this information?

Its a vaccine; not experimental has emergency use authorization

Okay you are more qualified to advise others about the vaccine than the FDA, CDC, WHO, and all the other experts; gawd help us

1) I said children. Covid took down old and sickly people but the rate of serious infection for under 18 was near zero. (Proof: Web Link

2) If true, why did Alameda county bring back mask mandates? The county heavily vaxxed, yet you're still wearing a mask years later LOL

IF you want to jab up your 1 year old for omicron (mild) go for it.

@Jake Waters,

The covid-19 vaccines were never classified as "gene therapy". Stop spreading outright lies and complete garbage. You have no idea what "gene therapy" is. Your comment should be deleted. It is a flat out lie.

BobB is back. Wash your hands, wear a mask and socially distance. I guess Fauci did not follow your advice. The vaccine is much close to gene therapy than an actual vaccine as most of are familiar with such as flu, mumps etc. Just stay home BobB and you will be okay.

There is no "closer to gene therapy". They just aren't gene therapy.

Oh so your okay with the "older and sickly" dying at an alarming rate? I would bet a lot of those people got sick because small unvaccinated children brought the virus home.

2) If true, why did Alameda county bring back mask mandates? The county heavily vaxxed, yet you're still wearing a mask years later LOL

The mask mandate is back because the infection rate is steadily rising this is not rocket science

IF you want to jab up your 1 year old for omicron (mild) go for it.

Will do - but don't get me wrong I'm perfectly fine with people choosing not to vaccinate or wear a mask and then paying the ultimate price by dying -- it's just all the people they expose on their way out that bothers me
