The CDC estimates that .04% of children and young adults are at risk of losing their lives after contracting the virus. Suffice to say that children are at a vanishingly rare risk of perishing from the coronavirus that infected the world and caused the pandemic.
This calculus, then, calls into question the wisdom of vaccinating such a group against a virus from which the overwhelming majority will face close to zero statistical risk. It is particularly true as we learn more about the adverse events experienced by young people, not from the virus – but from the vaccine itself. One never wishes the “remedy to be worse than the malady,” but that may well be true in this instance.
This is Not a Conspiracy Theory

While acknowledging that the hard data indicate an increased risk of myocarditis in young men after the second dose of the experimental COVID vaccine, ACIP asserted the risks of dying from COVID still outweigh the risks of getting the jab. This was after a large-scale study in Israel determined the vaccines are “probably” connected to heart inflammation in young men.
The risk ACIP itself faced was whether to...
