Leave the Kids Alone

Silverfiddle Rant!
Flu more Deadly to Children than Covid

The hysterical totalitarian left continue to attack our children.  Why?  Seasonal flu is more deadly to children than Covid. 340 people aged 0-17 in the US have died in the 18 month span since the pandemic began.  477 people aged 0-17 died of influenza during the 2018-2019 flu season (Sep-May) in the US. See CDC Stats for numbers for each season from 2010 to 2020.  
During April to October 2020 in the US, emergency room visits linked to mental health problems (e.g. anxiety) for children aged 5-11 increased by nearly 25% and increased by 31% for those aged 12-17 years old as compared to the same period in 2019.

Cure Worse than the Disease

Over 800 cases of adolescent myocarditis linked the covid vaccine should give our government pause. Let's listen to the experts, like Dr. Sara Ross, chief of pediatric critical care at the Boston hospital:
“I have practiced pediatric ICU for almost 15 years and I have never taken care of a single patient with a vaccine-related complication until now,” Ross told KHN. “Our standard for safety seems to be different for all the other vaccines we expose children to.”

“Young children are not the vectors of disease, nor are they driving the spread of the epidemic,”
Kids aren't Spreaders - They belong in school, unmasked:
School outbreaks do occur and are proportionate to the degree of community transmission. In Australia’s current Delta outbreak, we’ve seen very few school-related infections.

But it’s important to understand adult staff are responsible for most transmission in schools. And most transmission — linked to schools or generally — occurs in households. We’ve seen this even in the UK with the Delta variant.

A Scottish study with data up to February found the highest risk factor of infection in people at risk of severe COVID-19 was the number of adults in their household. Living with children was not a risk factor. (Let's Hold Off on Vaccinating Children and Teens)


  1. Are you vaccinating children in America? I don't fully understand the epidemiology, but I've read the argument that if adult take-up is high enough, we could reach the threshold for herd immunity without treating teenagers.

    1. The push is on to vaccinate adolescents. Pre-teen children, not yet, but "the experts" are forcing them to mask everywhere and treating them and referring to them as a vulnerable population, which is completely unsupported by the data.

    2. CDC Guidance (Our US government 'Experts')

      COVID-19 Vaccines for Children and Teens:


  2. Rational thought is abandoned, by lay persons and professionals both, when the topis is Corona virus.

    My wife is very annoyed with me because I have declined to get vaccinated against a disease which I have had and recovered from and from which I have developed an naturally acquired immunity. She is gotten the vaccine, and feels very virtuous, but clearly not very safe.

    The past couple of days she claims to have felt "a little bit hoarse." (I cannot say that any such hoarseness has been detectable to my ear, but I have decided to maintain a low profile on the issue. She admits that hoarseness is not a common symptom of Covid, but that in rare instances it might be, and so she feels the need to be tested. Nowhere near us as an appointment available, so she drove to Pacific Beach, where parking is about as available as teeth in a chicken, and got her test. She still would prefer that I get the vaccine.

    If the vaccine does not protect her from Covid, and clearly she does not believe that it does, why is she so hot for me to get the vaccine? I am too much of a devout coward to ask her that question.

    1. Jayhawk, I can sympathize. My wife and I have some divergence of opinion on this subject, and often, it is better just to respect the differences and leave it alone.

    2. Which brand of vaccine should be taken? What if you mix brands on the 2nd jab? Do you have a choice on which brand to get jabbed with? How do you overcome the vaccine manufacturer's guaranteed product liability immunity if the vaccine actually harms you? Why are vaccinated adults still carriers but unvaccinated children aren't? How long can you wait between the first and second jab before the first jab is ineffective? Do you need to be tested for Covid before the jabs? What if you get Covid between the two jabs? What if the person giving you the jab has Covid? Will washing your sinuses with a neti pot full of EZ Off oven cleaner kill coronavirus colonies?

    3. TC: Excellent questions. You can get banned off of social media for asking them too aggressively.

    4. I've asked some of those on social media, and it was fine.

    5. Apparently nicotine patches for trying to quit smoking are giving people immunity to Covid. Probably easier to just eat your uncooked raw root veggies that are high in nicotine (potatoes, carrots, etc)

    6. Not sure I could handle a raw potato, but carrots are yum.

    7. Raw taters aren't insurmountably inedible. A little dash of salt on a small slice.... Better than eating a cigarette 😋

  3. The fact that a million+ have come over the Southern border and have shipped off to anytown USA untested and unvaccinated proves the government doesn't care about Covid or the population. At all.
