... you puff yourself up as though you are one of the “informed” class, so I have a question for you, if I may. Why do children who are at no virtually no risk needing this injection? They are at no risk of mortality. Teachers who fear their students can... take the shot themselves rather than require someone else to. Unless you’re one of those uninformed mask breathers who just echo what the boob tube networks told them and feel informed while they spread propaganda, you must have some good reasons for wanting kids to try this experimental injection at this time.
