...Data from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that cases among children peaked in September, as many schools opened for in-person classes amid the country's delta variant Covid surge. More than 6 million children have tested positive for Covid since the beginning of the pandemic, with more than 1.1 million new cases recorded from Sept. 3 to Sept. 30....

It is sad that the children are not yet approved for the vaccine. So they are at this point unprotected. Worse, they will bring home what they got at school, just like it's always been with colds, flu, and other diseases.

If their parents are not vaccinated, it will likely be shared, just like it's always been. If the parents co-workers are not vaccinated...well you know the story and how it goes.

Employers requiring vaccinated workers or having to pay extra for medical coverage has shown economical incentives are biggies. But no one is really talking about just how much all these covid patients are paying out of their own pocket for all the long stays in ICU. Those that make it out are finding out, that's one heck of an incentive but by then it's too little, too late, to save on the pocket book.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of children. If they die in the furtherance of me making a point, so be it...

I told you they would be coming for the kids.

The less people are paying attention, they have to go to more extreme ways to shock and scare us.

This thread could have been predicted and I did.

Anti-vaccine school in Florida tells kids to stay home if they get a COVID shot
arstechnica.com

...The school, which also barred vaccinated teachers, pushes vaccine falsehoods.

An anti-vaccine private school in Miami, Florida, is requiring students who receive a COVID-19 vaccine to stay home for 30 days after each shot, according to local news outlet WSVN.

In a letter to parents, the school once again spread vaccine misinformation, falsely claiming that COVID-19 vaccines can cause "potential transmission or shedding onto others." No COVID-19 vaccines in use in the US include a live virus; there are only mRNA-based vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) and a nonreplicating viral vector-based vaccine (J&J) in use here. These COVID-19 vaccines do not cause "shedding" or pose any risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 to others....

You mean you predicted that the one group that isn't vaccinated would increasingly be infected with COVID? Get outta here!

So how many children's lives is something that is manageable worth with rather basic protocols and immunization worth in the name of "freedom"?

Must we tolerate wilful ignorance in the name of "freedom" or should we do the appropriate things to protect the people of the nation and indeed the nation?

Boazo is psychic!

All you need to do is get past a few credibility issues.

You predicted we would win in Afghanistan... you went there yourself.
We all know how that turned out.

You said there were WMD's in Iraq.
We all know how that turned out.

You voted for a loser... two of them in fact... multiple times no less.
We all know how that turned out too.

You are unaware that you enjoy socialist benefits while you rail against socialism.
We know you live in an alternate reality... so predict away.

WTF is that supposed to mean? I mean, it's the same ------ you post when someone who's unvaccinated dies of covid.

"Womp womp" - sad trombone sound. From Cory Lewandowsky's crass, wretched, sociopathic mocking of a 10 year old girl with Down's Syndrome being taken from her mom and put in a cage.

Fitting in its use here because of posts like Boaz #7.

Republicans have made it clear they don't care about children getting COVID and dying because, as we've been told by Skeptical and others, children aren't at risk. It just doesn't happen. It's all about "liberals" wanting to "control" people and taking away "freedom" and other nonsense. Every single right-wing morons repeat that same nonsense over and over and over.

So it was a sarcastic use of "womp womp" showing just how much those same right-wingers actually care.
