      The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

    3. @BUBBA JIM if some parents who got their children vaccinated are found like this they should probably call you then eh? You should stop and think about what you are posting for the ENTIRE WORLD to see.

    4. @Stacey E. Peterson Yes, but that would mean BUBBA JIM can actually THINK…. And clearly, that’s not the case. All he knows to do is bray like a sheep.

  1. Remember there are a lot of kids who have compromised immune systems who have been locked up locked away all this time… Now those kids can get the vaccine and get out there again

    1. @ES519 You guys keep pointing out that it’s been approved for emergency use only. No kidding. It’s called protocol.
      How about we look at some numbers, shall we?

      How many people in the U.S. have been infected with COVID?
      Over 32.5M.
      How many have died from COVID?
      How many people have had at least one shot of any of the three vaccines approved for use in the U.S.?
      Over 152.8M.
      How many have died from any of the three vaccines?
      If those numbers don’t mean anything to you, maybe you need to take 2nd grade math again.

    2. @Karrie Tobin I’ve thought about that too, kids with diabetes and other pre-existing conditions that put them at higher risk. I could not be more grateful that your son will soon be in a FAR SAFER position than he is now, Karrie. He’s lucky to have such good parents, parents who are top of things, who are smart and loving and not the type to fall for conspiracist propaganda hogwash. And I bet he’s a good kid who gets good grades, is kind and considerate, and is someone who makes you proud.

    3. @TVC15ohoh COVID, a quite possibly weaponized virus from the Fauci-funded-with-taxpayer-dollars lab in Wuhan, China.
      Months ago, herd immunity was near. Now Fauci and the CDC say it will never be achieved? Now the Pfizer shot will necessitate yearly booster shots. Pfizer expects to make $21B this year from its COVID vaccine! Anyone who thinks this isn’t about money is a fool.
      Months ago, Fauci, et al. agreed that children were at little or no risk of getting COVID, of transmitting it, least of all dying from it. Now Fauci is demanding that all teens be vaccinated by the end of the year! Why? They are no more in danger of contracting it now than they were a year ago. Why are parents around this country not standing up to prevent their kids from being guinea pigs in this monstrous medical experiment? And now they are “experimenting” on infants. Needless to say, some have died. There is no reason on Earth for teens, children, and infants to be vaccinated. Not one.

    4. @Tod L He does know that almost everyone who gets covid gets permanent health complications children are just as if not even more at risk to getting it.

    5. @Constituent A Shes completely wrong. She should instead say “ALL KIDS” because ALL 12-15 year olds need this vaccine as they can spread covid, die from unknown health conditions and almost all of them get long term life damaging health conditions. SO YEAH ALLLL KIDS

    1. @3929 name look at my comment above. Guy called me a liar and said only 1 death from j&j vax and 0 deaths from Pfizer and moderna. … Dumb

  2. cool. what’s the emergency, sales targets this quarter before the july financial year, so we can get the booster rollout by next quarter?

  3. Wait isn’t this the same emergency authorization that was given to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine? That went well

    1. You are the worst parent! Let me guess they’re going to have all the recommend shots too? Your child is being treated like a lab rat! they don’t need any of these vaccines! Wake up and stop watching the news! What a sad world we live in! I bet if the news told everyone to jump of a cliff people would do it!

    2. @The Lone Journey My child has been in school since August last year also riding the bus… He was quarantined once before Christmas? Schools almost over for the year! No Covid! Or Covid antibodies! Only masks and the other washing hands and social distance. My kids say no! I agree!

  4. I don’t know. Everyone’s all about how happy kids were before staying at home and how sending kids back to school will solve everyone’s problems. What about all the bullying and emotional issues and all the other issues kids had in schools before this? What about teachers being underpaid and overworked?
