Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo made a significant statement about the contentious COVID-19 vaccines for youngsters. Florida is the first in the US to recommend against administering immunizations, making it the first state to do so. The federal government’s “vaccinate anything that moves” narrative may be popular, but it is not necessarily correct.
At least statistically, the COVID danger to children is essentially non-existent. According to research, masking youngsters makes no apparent effect in COVID instances. The fascist-minded come for their children because they realize that frightening their children may give them power over their parents. COVID has a surprising silver lining in that it has little to no effect on youngsters. People are putting kids in charge of every adult’s health in their life.
Moreover, throughout the epidemic, less than 1,000 children have died from COVID-19. In the United States, there are 75 million children aged 0 to 18. Emotion should never be used to make public policy decisions, and vaccinating a six-year-old who is otherwise healthy is nothing more than an emotional response. It makes little sense, especially given the scarcity of long-term research on how immunizations influence a developing youngster.
Children’s vaccination has become another crutch for triple-vaxxed hypochondriacs, believing schools are a conduit for adult transmission. There is no research to back that up and even if there was, people should not be using children to appease adults’ foolish fears. Florida’s decision to advise against it is correct.
Therefore, DeSantis and Lapado should be applauded for listening to their citizens and acting in the state’s best interests rather than catering to the media and the left. Besides, the press and the collective left will bash Florida whatever. They perceive the Free State as a counterpoint and distraction from their own states’ abysmal failings.
