The teachers’ unions in North America would fight this tooth and nail.

We are told that the “Science is settled” and the benefit of the Coronavirus vaccines that were released less than a year ago on “emergency use authorization” outweigh the risks.

Over the past year and a half, we’ve learned a lot about SARS-CoV-2.

There are certain demographics that are at increased risk of serious complications from the coronavirus, and they should probably be vaccinated if they are able to.

We know, generally speaking, that the people at highest risk are those who are:

  • over the age of 60 (especially the elderly in long-term care facilities)
  • are overweight
  • have co-morbidities (underlying health conditions)

We also know that, (despite the constant media bleating,) children are at very little risk of any serious illness if they do contract the virus — even the dreaded “Delta Variant.”

And as for “risk” well, even that can be debated since the vast majority of people (over 99% in most age groups,) who contract the illness recover from it.

There is a weird obsession to have everyone vaccinated, even the millions of people who have natural immunity from having contracted and recovered from the virus. There’s also a real push to vaccinate children.

The U.K. however, is urging some caution.

With reports of adverse reactions such as pericarditis and myocarditis primarily among teens and young men, and very little risk of the virus itself to children, the Vaccine Advisory board in the U.K. is recommending against broad vaccination of healthy 12-15-year-olds.

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) on Friday said it’s taking a “precautionary approach” because children have a very low risk of getting seriously ill from the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus—two in a million admitted to PICU according to the latest analysis.

“Given this very low risk, considerations on the potential harms and benefits of vaccination are very finely balanced,” the JCVI said in a statement.

The Department of Health and Social Care on Aug. 28 preemptively told England’s health service to get ready to vaccinate all 12–15-year-olds in anticipation of a recommendation in favour of mass vaccination for the age group.

JVCI has recommended one dose of the Pfizer vaccine to all 16-17-year-olds because social behavior and the infection rate is different than the younger age group, and the older cohort can provide informed consent.

“Informed consent” is a phrase that isn’t used enough with regard to the coronavirus vaccine.

Meanwhile, in North America, Coronavirus paranoiacs insist that children should be protecting adults and take a vaccine using new technology that has had no long-term trial data. This is despite reports that the vaccine has been less effective at preventing the spread of the virus as we have seen with breakthrough cases during the Delta wave.

The United States and Canada are both vaccinating children ages 12 and up and looking to vaccinate even younger children.

Pfizer is seeking authorization to vaccinate 5-11-year-olds.

It seems that the $11.3 billion that Pfizer made in just the first half of 2021 from COVID wasn’t enough. They’ve got to jab the kiddos, too.

In North America, we’re willing to administer a new vaccine to children and ignore data on adverse reactions because of the threat of the super-contagious (though less deadly) Delta Variant that shares the same symptoms as the common cold — sinus congestion, runny nose, sore throat, and sneezing.

Great work, everyone. Great work.
