Let's see how many plague rats are A-OK letting their children die or go thru live with long term health issues
Consequently, let's see how many kids's first decision is 'fark you, I want the jab'

Forced inoculations and sterilization

I've said multiple times there need to be private vaccination clinics at all public schools once it's approved for kids, otherwise kids in anti-vax households will be trapped with no way to get one.

Our deathly afraid of needles 9 year old can't wait until the day she can get both of these shots.  She understands the importance, and wants to do her part.

See the HPV vaccine. Because HPV affects the "girl parts" (yes, I know it can affect boy parts, too) and involves s-e-x parents get all weird about it.

I'll feel relief when my 7 year old niece is vaccinated.
 
2021-10-07 8:43:35 AM  
So FDA isn't meeting until Oct 26. I hope that's because they are reviewing the data until then.
 
2021-10-07 8:43:42 AM  
Word is the FDA approval will arrive at the meeting which I believe is on the 26th.  This is right in Pfizer's timeline, they advised submission of data in early October and while there was hope for sooner, they did not lie.
Chat with my Pediatrician advised they already have the scheduling built and will be doing clinics at the hospital only at first, something like 40 appointments at a time so 160 kids per hour.  Sadly I do not think it will be 24x7.  Not sure how many sites will be doing vax for the 2-11s around town.
 
2021-10-07 8:44:31 AM  
Yesssssssss. Still sad that our youngest can't get it but having the older two vaccinated will help my sleep greatly.

Really tired of playing the "is it a cold or covid" game.

Good on her. My 9 year old does not feel any altruism or community spirit, he just wants very badly to start going over to friends' houses again.
He was just describing to me the other day how he and two friends of his are going to have a traveling sleepover - one night at each house - as soon as they're all fully vaccinated.

That had actually died down a lot since it wasn't being brought up by Michelle Bachmann every other week in a GOP debate. At the beginning of the pandemic as Republicans flooded the anti-vaxx movement en masse I was kind of shocked at the number of people who hadn't realized they had allowed their daughters to be innoculated with the autism virus.
 
2021-10-07 8:46:56 AM  
Now we just have to codify that preventing your children from getting vaccinated is child abuse.

I'm lucky in that my ex-husband and I are both on the same page about getting our 10 year old son vaccinated ASAP, but it does make me wonder how many families have one guardian for and the other against and how that will play out.
 
2021-10-07 8:51:34 AM  
Awesome, my 11-year-old son will be first in line.  Can't wait to get this part behind us.

The company's request Thursday may mean the shots won't be available until around November.

I knew teenagers that would sneak to a local youth agency for birth control and abortions. I've watched with interest, waiting to read about the "family values" cons shutting down or at least trying to shut down clinics for vaccinating minors.  You know it will happen.

I remember back in the day they had these Trek like 'air jet guns' loaded with vaccine, they'd just line the kids up and shoot'em pretty fast. You didn't have needles it just blasted the vaccine through the skin.

The Irresponsible Captain: Line 'em up.

[wpr.org image 620x446]


I remember those days.  No kids getting excused for religious beliefs.  Not even Jerry Langstein who got extra vacay for Harmonica and Kim Yippers.   During those 'holidays' Jerry would come down to the playground and we'd yell "Teacher, Jerry Langstein is out there.  He's not sick."  And the teacher would explain "Jerry iz und Jew und they deserve our pity now, ya?"*  Jerry was the one to watch anyhow.  If it was the air gun, he was fine.  But if it was needles, he'd drop.  Bets were made whether he'd make it to the nurses station.  When they went alphabetically, I'd get a shot and go "Oh!" and turn and watch Jerry's face go white.  Absolutely no blood up there.  The line moves and he starts to shrink.  Barely able to state his name.  You gotta give him points for bravery, though.   The nurse touches his arm and down he goes.  Sometimes, they'd catch him.   Sometimes not.  The girls would giggle.  The nurse would stick him and move him over to a chair.

Everyone would get a shot.

*not really.  She explained he was Jewish and that was it.  Not what Judaism is or why he wasn't in school on Christmas Day

The troll farms got this covered. We'll soon hear about the next crazy remedy kids should be taking instead. Chlorine tablets or something. Huffing chlorine or asbestos.

Are the doses shipped out differently or does the person doing the shot just use less? I ask because I am curious if there is going to be shortages and wait times getting the vaccine for your kids.

Unfortunately, because of the anti-vaxxers, masks are still necessary.

Headso: Are the doses shipped out differently or does the person doing the shot just use less? I ask because I am curious if there is going to be shortages and wait times getting the vaccine for your kids.


The Mrs Functions hospital(a cancer hospital) is about to figure that out.  Due to the small amount it may need to be mixed with saline to have enough for the syringe to actually work. They may also just say "screw it" and let pediatricians and childrens hospitals handle it.

And yet we have "adults" saying the only reason they aren't vaccinated is because they are just so scared of a tiny little needle.

Yeah, let's use a different method. The jet guns have issues.

My kids Catholic school has been phenomenal during the pandemic at handling everything. They've already gotten ahead of the curve and said once available they expect every student to get it if they don't have a medical reason not to. They've also said religious exemptions won't be granted obviously, cause the Pope called it an act of love.
 
2021-10-07 9:10:21 AM  
I salute the parents who volunteered their children for testing the vaccine. I'm not a parent, so I can't imagine the anxiety it must have caused to submit your own flesh and blood to medical experimentation. It's the highest act of altruism to risk your child for the greater good and I'm glad there are enough good people left it the world to make it happen.

My five-year-old, who hates getting shots, can't wait to get it. He'd be first in line. Personally, I might wait a few weeks after it is approved for whatever rare side-effect that didn't pop up in the trials to show up so the doctors are aware of it, then get him the vax. I just want him to be fully vaxxed at Christmas.

My hats off to the parents who have kids champing at the bit for the shot.  You've done good raising them so far.

Just try not to screw it up when they hit the teens.  It gets rough then.

Oh JHC yes.  My poor kiddos have had too many Covid tests.  Our pediatrician has said too many times "seriously, it's not Covid and we aren't terribly worried unless the fever is bad" many times, but it's hard to sink in. He still operates on observational evidence that the littles ones get so many viruses that Covid just gets lost in the shuffle and gets the boot.
The continually runny nose in the youngest equation seems to confirm that.
