'Surround children with vaccinated people,' Fauci says

yes, Dr. Fauci. So that's why Sprout isn't going anywhere near a classroom virus factory until the under 12 kids are vaccinated and proof is required to get into class, just like any other vaccination.

That we were so inflexible as a society in failure of supporting the vulnerable to stay at home and not farking worry about getting evicted or starving is an indictment almost as awful as the useless antivaxxers themselves. Capitalism is more important than people. Your freedom to behave to harm me is more important than my freedom to be safe in my own person. This is just all just visible expressions of why we aren't going to make it into the future as a civilization, and we did it to ourselves.

Probably not ended, but would have been manageable within the USA

We certainly wouldn't be seeing full ICU units in September.

But the great conservative thinkers of our time -- Alex Jones, Tucker Carlson, and Joe Rogan -- have told me repeatedly the virus is fake and also is curable with horse paste, and they are all the pinnacle alpha males who could make a tank full of ANTIFA super-soldiers go into full retreat but who also would fall over dead if forced to wear a mask in public.

from my Next Derp this morning...

"My Daughter has been diagnosed with Covid 19. She was told she has "Covid Lung" in both lungs. 
Does anyone see a Pulmonologist in the area who they would recommend?
Neighbors, please, for your sake and that of your families, get vaccinated.

Our family had a get together the day before her fevers and body aches began. All of us had been vaccinated. She was not. All of us, except for her had a negative test result. Now my poor girl is suffering from this horrible disease and worried about her boys who are too young to be vaccinated."


...after a few responses this comes out...

[to person]: She's a teacher so if he accepts her insurance, that location will work. 
Thank You for taking the time to let us know about Dr. XXXX"

The counter of this is depending on your kids age, they are missing key years of educational development, socialization, etc.

Covid is absolutely a risk. Thankfully it has been negligible for young kids.

farking up their education is also a known, and quantifiable risk, which also carries health consequences down the line.

There's no real reason children need to stick to the traditional timeline.  If they were to take a couple years off in the middle of their education and end up entering the work force a little later it's not going to be a big deal.  Having a 48 year carrier instead of 50 years won't matter much.

And kids aren't missing much anyway.  School is babysitting and nobody gets much out of it.  You have the smart kids that are typically ahead of what is being taught and dumb kids that aren't retaining anything anyway.

Cell phones have done more to hurt socialization than the pandemic ever could.  And based on my experience, school basically teaches "anti-socialization".

Anyway, my point is that missing some school isn't going to cause any great harm and there's no justification for sending kids into harms way.

It seems like we could let kids get together in small pods at least.  This would cause a lot less spread than putting 1000 kids into a junior high, and would allow outbreaks to be controlled and make contact-tracing practical.

We just moved. We have neighbor kids right behind us, we have a secular homeschooling group that does meetups, we have friends and family with kids about the same ages as our kids.

The kids play together outside, the parents and older children of all these kids are vaccinated, and if kids get together inside everyone wears a mask. This whole "OMG, if we don't have unmasked kids crammed into tightly packed rooms with unvaccinated teachers they will all die" thing is farking bullshiat.

You ever go to a friend's house and the kid next door comes out to play too, only he isn't wearing a mask, and so you gently tell him it helps to protect people like his grandparents and he laughs and says his grandfather who lives with him is already in a hospital on a vent? Fun times.

"Oh we're being careful. We wore masks on the flight to Disneyworld."

"The vaccines are experimental."

We tried buying masks for people. Talking to people about vaccinating. She's basically down to video chatting with her cousin constantly and hanging with intelligent vaccinated adults because we live in a sea of morons. I've had conversations with people who didn't know you could refill the air in basketballs and would just throw them out when they got flat. At this point I'm mostly looking to move because I'm so farking tired of it.

Real Americans are deeply concerned about the children.  Not concerned enough to get vaccinated, wear masks, or take the virus seriously since day one.

But deeply concerned about the children.

There weren't many single children since people had a lot of kids because half of them died from disease.

2021-09-06 12:03:43 PM  
Why do we care?  The pediatric death numbers for COVID are minuscule.

https://data.cdc.gov/NCHS/Provisional​-​COVID-19-Deaths-Focus-on-Ages-0-18-Yea​/nr4s-juj3

There have been just 470 deaths age 18 and under out of 633,785 total COVID deaths in the US.  That's just (470 / 633,785) * 100 = 0.074% of the deaths despite that age group being roughly 23% of the population as a whole.

For perspective, for the same population, about 864 people age 0 to 18 drown.
https://webappa.cdc.gov/sasweb/ncipc/​m​ortrate.html

But we don't freak the fark out about it.  Sure, we put fences around our pools, but we don't ban them or call people who have them assholes who want to kill children.

So yeah, get vaccinated.  I did as did the distaffbopper and the littlebopper, but the sky isn't falling, and anyone who claims the sky is falling for children too young to be vaccinated yet is spreading COVID disinformation.

its not the concern for the children, it is the concern about the concern they get to be outraged about.  Otherwise, they'd be hypocrites if they were just concerned about the children.
