If I Had Young Kids, Especially Boys, I Wouldn’t Vaccinate Them Either

Biden’s Surgeon General Lectures McConaughey For Not Vaccinating His Kids: ‘Look, You And I Are Both Parents’ | The Daily Wire

I’m a parent too, and I’ve already mentioned why I wouldn’t let my young kids get vaccinated.

So, I think McConaughey is doing the right thing.

Long quote from the Surgeon General here.

“Well, what I would say, first of all, is look, you and I are both parents,” Murthy pontificated.  “We know there is nothing more important than the safety of our children. And so, if you are a parent out there and you have got questions, that’s okay to have questions. You know, you should ask your questions. You should get them answered.”

“My thing is I really want to make sure people get them answered from credible sources,” he continued. “Keep in mind this. I am going to draw parallel here. When we began the vaccination effort for adults, actually a few months before we had the vaccine available, if you looked at polls, they showed about a third or so of adults were ready to go out and get the vaccine right away.  What changed, though, is then the FDA and CDC weighed in. People saw their friends and family get vaccinated. People also recognized that they were getting protected and they got the chance to talk to their doctors about the vaccine.”

“All of that is going to start happening now with vaccines for children, as well,” he predicted. “So, what I would encourage parents to recognize is, number one, COVID is not harmless in our children. Many kids have died. Sadly, hundreds of children, thousands have been hospitalized and as a dad of a child who has been hospitalized several years ago for another illness, I would never wish upon any parent they have a child that ends up in the hospital. And the vaccines have shown in these trials for children 5 through 11, they are more at 90 percent effective and they are remarkably safe as well. The kind of side effects they saw were sore arm, fatigue, headache.”

That last statement is a flat-out lie. The side effects, particularly in boys, can be quite severe, and occur in similar numbers to the prevention of the disease. Me, I’d rather take my chances with the China virus.
