  1. I would like to know when will they come out with the proper dosage to give to kids 12 and under, they need protection.

    1. @Jason Boyce Untrue. Children aren’t just small adults, and their immune systems are a bit different. It isn’t just a function of mass. Research scientists and doctors are working on the best dosage now, but it will take time.

    2. @Deborah Freedman the pediatric dosing charts that i work off of typically go by weight and age for most medications, except those that are prepackaged by the manufacturer for under 18s. you are right that they don’t simply divide the dosage by their age or weight, the doctors will figure out what is appropriate and then lay it out from there. however, if they can figure out how to make the mrna vaccine in the first place, it’s not going to be hard to figure out what the dosage should be for under 12s

    3. do you people even read research papers or any of the data without the help of the media? Thinking you know this stuff because you watch the news

  2. Me and my family got ours, it’s all going to burn hot in those GQP run States where they would rather listen to a failed blogger and golf cheat rather than medical professionals

    1. My children are vaccinated, but I worry about my 2 1/2 year old grandson. As soon as vaccines are approved for his age group, his parents have a standing appointment with their pediatrician.

    2. How will he succeed in Bidens America? Biden has given us record inflation,higher taxes are inevitable, not the future I want for my kids,but I love my children.

    3. @David Eby let’s break down your lies. Regarding inflation and taxes. From Politifact: “…most of the big-spending coursing through the economy took place before Biden and the Democrats were in charge in Washington. In the past, there’s been a lag of one to two years between higher government spending and higher inflation. The massive relief package in March has had little time to spur inflation.

      As for taxes, they haven’t gone up. And if they had, that would tend to put the brakes on inflation.

      We rate this claim Mostly False.”
      This means that the inflation we’re seeing now is a result of out-of-control spending from the Trump administration. Strike one. And strike two because taxes haven’t gone up. Nor are they invevitable. You suckers got played when you believed that Obama was coming for your guns. You still have them. This is the same schtick from Republicans. Scare you with the “he’s gonna raise your taxes!” boogeyman that they use every time a Dem is President. In reality, Trump raised your taxes to pay for his tax breaks for his rich buddies and himself.
      Strike three is not wanting a good future for your kids. Cuz backing Republicans will give them a bad future full of lies.

    4. @dark14life So I didn’t say taxes went up did I Dummy? Vegetable Bidens policies have resulted in record high inflation. End of story. Guess you’re just embarrassed that you voted for such a fool. That’s on you,own it. I feel good this whole mess is on you,I voted for Trump. What about Biden importing all these covid cases everyday? That’s probably Trumps fault. Hahaha

  3. Remember in that map in yellow is the Dakota’s where Sturgis is happening this weekend with a few hundred thousand in attendance. They’ll bring Delta back home, and likely swamp South Dakota’s hospitals with infected…

    1. Funny how you don’t say anything about the lalapalooza in Illinois.
      Where 110,000 attended.

    2. Stay locked up in your basement over a virus that has a 99.97% survivability rate and I’ll be free. Problem solved

    3. @Censorship Is real and the attendees had to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test. That’s not gonna happen at Sturgis and you know it!

    4. Sturgis outbreak last year, only .1% of attendees caught the virus.

      This year, could be much different. And Lollapalooza SIN festival.

  4. Looks like red states are trying to address school shootings by having the students die from Covid instead.

    1. @SuperThumpasaurus Oh right, you only care about them while they’re in the uterus. Once they’re squirted out you abandon them like how child groomers abandon victims that hit age 18.

    2. @SuperThumpasaurus is that why we keep pushing for gun control while you keep cheering every school shooting?

    3. @dark14life : As a retired middle school math teacher, I can guarantee you NOBODY is cheering school shootings. Instead of just adding more insane gun laws ? how about enforcing the ones we do have. Too many times authorities drop the ball until it’s too late. Schools being a “gun free” zone doesn’t help either.

  5. I have no kids, but I have a selfish interest in keeping kids out if hospitals: In a triage situation, their lives would be chosen over mine.

    1. Enlightened self interest: the less hospitals overwhelmed, the more chances you’ll be fine should you get in a car crash, trip and hit your head, or other accidents.

    2. Children are not now, nor have they ever been hospitalized for covid. Of the very rare instances a child was hospitalized, and happened to test positive for covid, they had very serious contributing factors….such as leukemia.
      To date, we’ve had more previously healthy children die as a result of the injection, than of the virus. It’s a very small number, but it’s still more.

    3. @Sarah Brown Old news. 1 in 5 hospitalized Covid patients are now under 17, mostly because they make up a disproportionate percentage of the unvavvinated, and few people are being careful any more.

  6. I have always predicted that nothing is going to change until the kids start dying. I am fearful that my prediction will soon come true and I hope to God it doesn’t.

  7. I’m not hearing emergency vehicles 24hrs a day as I did in 2019 in the City of Los Angeles, those numbers in Ca. are suspect.

    1. Well, LA isn’t the entirety of Cali, now is it? It’s MUCH bigger than just LA. You just can’t hear the sirens outside of your area. Which is normal.

  8. When the kids go back they will bring covid and the variant home to the family, alot who are not vaccinated .. it will spread like a wildfire..

  9. I have a 5-year-old grandson and we live in South Carolina. He came home today with 102.5 fever. We’re praying it’s not Covid 19 or the Delta variant. I’m so worried. I’ve been worried all summer and I have just been sick since school started with all these young children who can’t get vaccinations yet. I’m praying!

  10. Well, Republicans have no qualms about kids dead from school shootings, why should they care about kids dead from school outbreaks?
