COVID policy in this country has turned into a massive, hodgepodge mess. We’re like a country that just can’t make up its mind about anything, and our leaders are too blind or too greedy to ever do the right thing. As of this past Thursday, if you are a Head Start teacher in New York City who works with 3- and 4-year-olds, you can go to work every day while unvaccinated. But if you’re a kindergarten teacher and work with 5-year-olds, they will fire you if you’re unvaccinated. That’s nuts, especially since the shots don’t work and are likely to hurt you.
At least parents have had enough of this garbage. The full vaccination rate for children under 5 in the US remains at 98.3% three months after the FDA authorized the shots for kids in that age range.
New York City just fired another 850 teachers after they failed to meet the September 5 deadline for COVID vaccination. That brings the total number of teachers to 1,950 that have gotten axe for trying to maintain bodily autonomy. New York’s vaccine mandate for teachers actually went into effect last October. But 1,300 teachers were allowed to take a year’s unpaid leave to make up their minds. They had until September 5 to show proof-of-vax status, and 850 of them failed to do so. They’re fired.
Pre-K Head Start teachers are safe, though! A federal judge in Louisiana ruled that Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for Head Start and daycare employees was unconstitutional and thus, unenforceable. US District Judge Terry Doughty (a Trump appointee) issued a permanent injunction against a vax mandate for Head Start teachers, and he also struck down Biden’s stupid mask mandate for those employees. Doughty’s ruling applies to both federal agencies and states – like New York and California – that were trying to force vax mandates on Head Start and daycare employees.
In better news, American parents have adopted a “Just Say No” approach to these shots for their young kids. Since Joe Biden and the CDC’s “Shots for Tots” program rolled out in June, it’s been a massive failure. In the first three months of the program, 1.2 million of the nation’s estimated 19 million under-5s have received their first shot. That’s about 6%.
But after that first shot, the numbers cratered. Only 325,000 under-5s got the second shot. That’s a rate of roughly 1.7% of fully vaccinated kids in that age group, after 3 months of an intensive propaganda campaign from the CDC, Joe Biden and the mainstream media. After giving their child the first shot, more than 70% of parents opted to not give their child the second one. 94% of parents never allowed their child to get even one shot. And 98.3% of American kids are not fully vaccinated.
I don’t personally know anyone with kids under 5 who is enough of a vaccine fanatic that they would have injected this stuff in their kids anyway, but wouldn’t it be nice if someone in this country would do some real journalism on this? I have questions I would love to ask parents.
Why did you not vaccinate your under-5 child? Were you personally hurt by the vaccine, and therefore opted not to vax your child? Do you know someone who was injured by the vax, and decided not to take the same risk with your child?
And for those who got the first shot, I’d like to know why 70% of them opted out of getting the second shot for their child. Did the first shot make your child sick?
Those would be interesting questions to know the answers to, wouldn’t they? We have Joe Biden running around actually bragging that America is the only country in the world that has authorized COVID shots for kids under 5. Hey Joe, why do you suppose all other countries in the world have decided it would be a bad idea to give these experimental injections to their young children?
And while we’re on the topic, why do you think that Communist China has refused to allow a single one of its 1.4 billion citizens to be injected with an mRNA vaccine?
Only 1 out of 300 under-5s received their first COVID shot the week of September 14, per the CDC. That’s a rate of 0.003%. Despite the lies of our public health officials, it doesn’t look like very many of the people still believe them, does it?
