Governor Newsom, in what many consider the governor’s road to destruction of the Golden State, announced last week that school children (grades K-12) in his state will be required to get the COVID vaccination. This comes, Grace Curley reminds readers in Spectator world, on the heels of Pfizer’s recent request that the FDA authorize its COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use among kids (ages 5-11).
The mandate will first take effect for students ages 12 and over after the FDA grants full approval to that entire age group.
Only Thing Offered Is Fear Itself
A somber Newsome told a middle-school crowd:
We’re all left wondering as we move through the summer surge. What lies ahead of us in the winter and spring… There’s still a struggle to get to where we need to go.”
Newsome doesn’t need to use persuasive arguments of CDC-approved science to convince his constituents that he is making the right choices on their behalf, continues Ms. Curley.
All he needs is hair gel, a microphone and a healthy dose of panic porn eagerly promoted by his fear mongering allies in the mainstream media and Big Tech.
California Teachers Exempt from the Mandate?
Newsom’s vague, trite hectoring begs several questions. He mentions getting “to where we need to go”, but where is that exactly? And when will this “struggle” he speaks of, end? Lastly, if this “struggle” to get “where we need to go” is so dire — why are teachers in the Golden State exempt from this mandate?
All evidence suggests that if any group should be exempt from taking the vaccine it would be children. They tend get milder symptoms from COVID-19 and also have a much lower chance of dying from the virus.
Oops from the NYT
But this is where the media always rides to the rescue. Last week, the New York Times breathlessly reported that 900,000 American children had been hospitalized with COVID-19. The next day, the Times had to run a small correction. The actual number wasn’t 900,000, it was 63,000. And those are the CDC’s numbers, so…caveat emptor even on those figures.
Who Will Help the Children?
While the kids have the science and numbers on their side, unlike California teachers, they don’t have the unions and the New York Times.
(Teachers who choose not to get vaccinated will keep their jobs as long as they agree to weekly testing, reports ABC7News.)
