This is great news. The spread in my area is largely youth sports. I would love to see a "no shot (or legit medical excuse) no play" rule but I realize I have a better chance of seeing Jesus take the field, so I'll settle for vaccinating all the players whose parents aren't idiots.

 I got a text message from my mobile provider not too long ago that my plan now includes 5G. So I forwarded it to my teenager (vaccinated) and said look the vaccine is working!

This is indeed good news. I look forward to these drugs becoming fully FDA approved. My rural, religious, siblings are refusing to get vaccinated until it's fully certified.

My youngest can't wait to get his, he'll be much more at ease at summer camp being fully vaccinated. It'll also allow us to do some indoor things on our summer vacation that we otherwise would have skipped. Oh, and of course he'll be able to safely go back to in-person schooling in the fall!

Pfizer is going to apply for full certification after the 6 month to 11 year trial is completed at the end of this month.

CSB..

My son is going to be a sophomore in the fall in high school. He has yet to set foot in his hs except for the locker room and the main office. He's ready now to get the vaccine and get back to school. The football coach & athletic director last night along with the principal told parents during the athletic board meeting that if they get more than 90% confirmed vaccinations they won't have to wear masks in football in the fall. Likewise if the school is above 75% they will probably go maskless at school and be able to switch classes like normal. Worst case is everyone wears a mask in school if the state wants the total vaccination rate higher for students. I can guarantee you now, any kid who doesn't get a shot is going to be bullied. The kids are beyond fed up and are ready for in school learning.

The only friend I have not taking it says she doesn't know if it will have any effect on her having kids someday. So I say give the vaccine to as many kids as possible, because kids shouldn't be having sex to begin with.

When people who get vaccinated get to do things that the non vaccinated don't.., then things will change.

Look it up, whats the number one reason people are hesitant to not get vaccinated?

" why bother, i will still have to wear a mask and be treated like a leper"

Show them proof the vaccination works. And i don't mean numbers.

Bullying ( the fark method) doesn't work.It only makes them dig in and be more stubborn.

I'm pretty sure most people who think that way are already walking around maskless like everything's over.

Or do you think it's the mask-wearing vaccinated people who are still spreading Covid around?

Or glad you have the chance for proper testing to be done to decide if kids who don't have a say (rightfully) in if they get vaccinated get a shot, when they have been shown to be of extremely low risk.

Yes, they are potentially a vector. Yes, we should get them vaccinated as soon as we can. Yes, there most likely will not be any issues extending the age groups, but when i make a call for someone else, i want to make sure its the right one.

And testing on kids, rightfully and for countless reasons, needs to lag behind adults.

My 13 year is chomping at the bit for it.

CSB: My wife would take the baby when she went in to get her allergy shots and hang out for the 'are you having a reaction' wait period with her. So for my teen's first couple years, she associated someone getting a buncha shots with an exciting trip, often a treat to keep her happy, and always one-on-one momma time. And now she perks up and gets cheerful every time she sees a needle. While it made the childhood vax appointments super easy I'm... I'm not sure this is good conditioning.

They'll come up with some other excuse once it's certified, just watch.

Jesus Alou

Jesus Montero (Mariners)
Jesus Guzman (Astros)
and quite a few others

I agree with no shot/no play. Anti-vaxxers can create their own league.

This is great news! Have my youngest enrolled in several camps for the summer and had my fingers crossed that kids his age would
be eligible in time (wife got her Pfizer early (nurse), and I got my second Pfizer in mid-April). I would have sucked it up and eaten the thousands of dollars if it came down to it (still cheaper than a hospital stay or-God forbid-a funeral).

It's not about the kid being sick, it's about the kid spreading it.

For context, there were 39 cases of intentional misuse of these pods among teenagers in all of 2016, and 53 in 2017[.]

Last year [2017], 167 incidents involving adults older than 60 were reported.


Examine the plank tide pod in your own mouth. This was always more of a problem among the elderly than it was among teenagers.

Pretty sure people most people who are vehement about not getting the vaccines are refusing because of things like "It's too soon" and "government control" and all of your garden-variety anti-vaxxer nonense.

Where did you "look it up" that demonstrated that people don't want to be vaccinated because they'll still have to wear masks? Because I'm 95% you just pulled that out of your ass to white-knight anti-vaxxers, since this is the second thread today I've seen you spouting inaccurate COVID nonsense.
