The next exemption war is poised to begin in the very near future.
Pfizer recently reported the effectiveness of their vaccine for children 5 to 11 years of age, and has applied for FDA emergency use authorization, with plans already under way by the Biden administration to vaccinate these children. This would make around 28 million children in the population eligible for COVID-19 vaccination.
Children in this age group are typically in grades K-6. Parents and guardians of this cohort have say over their children’s health, which means that “my child, my choice” will be the mantra for those who oppose vaccination. As such, areas with low vaccination rates among adults will likely have low vaccination rates among their children. This will effectively creating uneven vaccination coverage not only across school districts, but even within classrooms.
Given that many K-12 schools mandate vaccines against diseases like measles, mumps and other infectious diseases, it is reasonable that the COVID-19 vaccines will be added to this list once they gain full FDA approval for this age cohort. California became the first state to make this announcement; it will not be the last.
In their analysis, FDA scientists concluded that in almost every scenario the vaccine’s benefit for preventing hospitalizations and death from COVID-19 would outweigh any serious potential side effects in children. But agency reviewers stopped short of calling for Pfizer’s shot to be authorized.

I'm in the UK too, and one thing I can't seem to get a coherent (or indeed any) answer to is, considering they have given children the right to overrule parental objection, whether in a case where the parents want their child to be jabbed but the child doesn't wish to be, would that overrule still stand?
I have my strong suspicions that it likely wouldn't, and I really would like to know the answer to this...

At this point i think you're pissing in the wind trying to convince people the vaccines are dangerous.
Parents who swallow the official narratives on vaccines will gobble up the 'science' and offer up their children without a second thought.
It's a travesty but i'm past trying to educate people on the dangers, they simply don't want to hear it unless it's spoon fed by government agencies and major news networks. 2 years later if people still can't see the shamdemic for what it is then i have no hope for them going forward. I'm sure they will wake up when the vaccines start harming children but by that time it will be too late. Imagine the pain when you realise you've harmed your own children through wilful ignorance.
Trying to fight a trillion dollar propaganda machine is futile.
My 13 year old rejected the vaccine, thank god. I didn't even have a choice, the kids were allowed to over-rule their parents decision in the UK.

It's scary to think people never question the box in the room that sends them messages all day long. Almost like it's designed to replace critical thinking.
You'll be hard pressed in the UK to find anyone brought up on a diet of BBC TV who will reject a vaccine.
