Nobody should be surprised that Pfizer has approved their vaccine for young children. Next, at least in NY, we should expect the Governor to mandate it in order to attend school. You can expect the logic and reasoning to go something like this. “This is just another vaccine in a long list of vaccines required for school attendance”.
What do principles say to this? What do parents say to this?
Here’s what you say. You need to memorize it. The previous vaccines like Polio, MMR, etc all had anywhere from 6-16 YEARS worth of trials. This one, only a few months. So no, it’s absolutely NOT just another vaccine. Parents reserve the right and need to consent before anything is given to their children.
