In Mississippi, seven children are in intensive care with Covid-19, and two are on ventilators, State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs tweeted Tuesday evening. Many more adolescents could be hospitalized, Hotez said, adding that up to 30% of children infected will develop long-haul Covid-19.

If you have a child too young to vaccinate, and any parent in your district says no to this question, home school. And if, when vaccination opens up for kids, you refuse to vaccinate yours*, you are a horrible parent.

*a small number of legit medical exemptions excused, as always.

They should have a separate entrance and be sealed off from the rest of the school.

Irony itself: For those who are not farking morons and get vaccinated, covid actually is (at worst) pretty much "just the flu" that the morons are lying about covid being.

I was n LHV last week for vacation, it's stunningly beautiful but has many areas of dire poverty--it's a coal region. 

Should unvaxxed kids have to wear masks in school? 

NO! It's not a problem if they are not in school. The unvaxxed need to homeschool.

There's a world of difference between "with Covid" and "because of Covid". Hospitals are routinely testing admittees and it's not surprising that a certain percentage of children will test positive. The question is, is Covid the reason they're there or is it for other reasons and Covid happens to be present? Too, if a child has certain Covid comorbidities like asthma, leukemia, obesity, etc. you wouldn't want them going to school in person anyway, so if you eliminated those more-vulnerable children, have you reduced the scope such that the risk of masklessness and/or nonvaccination to them, already infinitesimal, becomes virtually nonexistent?

30% of kids who get COVID might have longhaul symptoms and you're suggesting what, that it's a coincidence?
 
2021-07-20 7:38:15 PM  
The solution is going to be to have everyone wear a mask. At least that's what they're planning on doing around here.
It's much easier to enforce it for everyone than to try to keep track of who said they were and weren't vaccinated. Besides, we know that no one under 12 will be vaccinated unless something changes quickly.
 
2021-07-20 7:43:24 PM  
I've been around there recently.  No farking way they are going to be able to enforce mask wearing.  Not a single fark.  None. This is god's country.

What about schools dont open until kids can be vaccinated and at least 75% of the school is vaccinated? Everyone working at the school should be vaccinated mandatory by law. No religious exemption BS.

You dont believe in science and you teach at school? Fark off, go find another job.

I'm required to be tb tested every 2 years. Required to get flu shots and my school district paid to vaccinate everyone it could. I'm pretty sure its going to be if you aren't vaccinated find a new job shortly.

Also, why the f*ck should you be consulting the opinions of parents when trying to shape health policies for your school? Shouldn't you be consulting medical experts? What the f*ck do parents have to offer other than ignorance and bigotry?

They're having a meeting to let people offer their opinions on infection control strategies in a school setting. Just like how fire fighters routinely have public meetings to let residents offer their opinions on how fast fire trucks drive or how much water pressure they need.

Just a continuation of the "the ones dying have underlying conditions" BS that 10 minutes looking at data would quickly disprove. "They are classifying everything as Covid when it was really..." they will say.

Sweetie, not saying there might not be some misclassified, but the other numbers for other things didnt go down - people were still dying of the other stuff at about the same rate as always. But the numbers are going up for one specific type of respiratory related ailment.  Huh.

I spoke to a friend who is a development officer (fund raiser) at a Catholic university in the Midwest. He said conservative Catholic donors are pulling donations because they believe that universities with vaccine mandates are forcing people to inject themselves with fetal tissue. When this person told the old fart that Francis and the Vatican have said vaccines are a moral good, he apparently said that Francis is a fake pope.

You can't reason with these people. They are simply not going to change.
 
2021-07-20 9:26:45 PM  
Vaccinate the students anyway in the first week. Just call a giant assembly.

Make the parents prove damages in court. Real, concrete, adverse, and causationally linked damages from being vaccinated.

You only get to do that trick once, though.

Celestia is a religious community founded in the 1850's by millennialists. In the 1860's Peter Armstrong, the community's founder, deeded the land to God

Of course he isn't.  He's just saying it's really suspicious that the COVID-19 just happened to come around when Trump was for re-election and that doctors just happen to claim people are dying of covid when they got shot 34 times.

It's just too suspicious.  It can't be a coincidence.  It's a conspiracy.  Doctors are getting paid to label things covid deaths so they are!

also, the vurus was manufactured in China.

also, we should be thanking Trump for singlehandedly inventing the vaccine.

Also, covid is not real.

"I'm not saying it's necessary, I'm just saying that if you routed the water into an RS-25 rocket engine oxidizer turbopump, you'd get WAY more nozzle pressure. You're probably going to have to connect the intake directly to the water main though. I'm not denying there is a setup cost, but it'll be worth it trust me."

Thank you. However, an autopsy was done today on my bestfriend's brother, and although he was very sick and seemed to be experiencing very covid type issues, it turns out he passed away from undiagnosed hereditary metastatic gastrointestinal cancer.

He didn't even know he had it. No one did. However, it doesn't make the loss any easier to bear.

I appreciate your kindness ❤
