Harvard Prof. Eric Rubin has a most interesting theory on the safety of vaccinating 5-year-olds: We gotta do it to find out if it’s going to screw them up!
How heartening and confidence-inspiring!
Cute Story: I recall a time when a person in our government said we needed to “pass a bill to find out what’s in it.” And I must say, upon reflection, that experiment didn’t turn out so well.
But sure, take the most priceless, innocent, and defenseless members of our society and treat them like lab mice… Or beagles.
Just to be clear: the panel did indeed vote to recommend that 5-11-year-olds get the shot. We’ll know very soon how that works out, but you won’t be testing your theory on my kid.
