What is the future of America, you might ask? Why it’s the same as the future everywhere else, it’s children. And how do we know what the future is? That’s also not hard, it’s good old-fashioned common sense. And what must we do if we want to protect our future? We need to protect our children.
For parents, there is often a tough decision to be made, of how much of that protection to outsource and how much to keep to themselves. An increase in assaults on school campuses has many parents contemplating what life would look like if they didn’t put their kids on the bus every morning, but find alternative ways of teaching them what was necessary at home or through pod schools.
Little is inspiring that conversation more than mask mandates and the talk of vaccinations of school-aged kids, considering their risk factors and the short history of vaccines. But that’s just what parents are faced with as the Bien administration rolls out mass vaccination plans for young children.
Multiple news agencies, including the Independent Journal Review, reported that the White House has announced its COVID-19 vaccination program for children ages 5 to 11, which rolled out this week.
Jeff Zients, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, made a statement about the new program, saying that “Parents will be able to schedule appointments at convenient sites they know and trust to get their kids vaccinated,” during a Monday briefing. The White House official added that “The number of sites will continue to increase throughout the month as more vaccine sites open their doors and administer vaccines. Bottom line, we have been planning and preparing for this moment. We are ready to execute pending the CDC’s decision.”
This is a revolting new development as parents who have, themselves, been hesitant to receive a vaccine that has a potentially unknown effect on the biology of adults seem particularly dangerous to administer to children. The risk seems particularly unnecessary, considering the incredibly low infection and mortality rate of children who have contracted COVID-19 during the past two years.
The Food and Drug Administration only recently (as in, days ago) approved the use of Pfizer and BioNTech’s vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 and the administration jumped shockingly quickly to push the vaccine on school-aged children, including acting FDA Commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock said in a statement, “As a mother and a physician, I know that parents, caregivers, school staff, and children have been waiting for today’s authorization. Vaccinating younger children against COVID-19 will bring us closer to returning to a sense of normalcy.”
The use of the term “return to normalcy” is a particularly pointed one, as we question why they would push the largely unexplored vaccine on children. The problem for the government is that, as noted, and as you’ve likely seen, parents are taking their children out of school in droves. Partially because of indoctrination, partially because of physical trauma, and partially because of the psychological damage of having children in school with all the new restrictions.
When a parent takes their kid out of public school, that school loses thousands (sometimes tens of thousands) of dollars a year. But they can’t allow everything to go straight back to normal and admitting that children don’t need protection might be a step back on the hysteria train.
So, if you were a person who needed people to be concerned about infection in children, and you needed the money from those children’s education fund to keep steaming in your direction, you might want to come up with something for children to do to get that gold star that would allow them to stop masking and go back to “normal.” That might look like a vaccine.
Either that or it’s all completely above board and Dr. Anthony Fauci and the other White House officials just believe that children with a 99.99 percent survival rate need treatment for a problem they don’t have that their parents object to them having.
