I follow one simple rule when it comes to my family: Take the most precautionary approach available. And that means the kids are vaxxed and boosted because even a small benefit is better than none.Question: Would you all get your 2-year-old vaccinated now? He just turned two, he just had RSV and 3-4 months before probably had covid. It was hard to test him but his mom and sister where both positive. I just have not read anything recently that would push me to get him vaccinated. I think the Kids shots are still the original strain which almost does nothing against the current variants (am I wrong here?) and with the new variants seemly being milder of illness I'm not sure I understand the reasoning behind getting them vaccinated.
Notes. My wife and I are all vaxed plus first booster and our 6-year-old daughter was vaccinated as soon as we could get her. I'm just not sure how much its needed anymore with the new variants and rather not give them shots that he or they don't really benefit from.
Please correct my thinking if I am wrong here, I'm going back and forth on this one.
Sure there will be people (and some who sound really smart) telling you that this really boils down to a cost/benefit sort of value proposition but that really misses the point. When you ask them to really drill down on what the costs or risks are they fall apart.
Some of what you are saying assumes that there is a negative to child vaccination. You really need to drill down on what that negative is and why you think it is a valid point
