Cowering Inferno

This is not a pro-vax or anti-vax letter, but a serious question. Just because Covid vaccination can apparently be safely given to 5-11 year olds (“US gives final approval of Pfizer’s Covid vaccine for children aged 5-11”, 3/11), is there a moral case for doing so? The vast majority of children are not at risk.

Is it ethically justified to alter children’s immune systems to ­inoculate them against an illness which they are not vulnerable to in order to protect the adults around them?

Adults can choose what to do with their bodies. What is the moral case for adults exercising this choice for little children, so that the adults around them are less vulnerable to Covid? Is this not reducing children to a means to an end?

Surely, if we as adults want to reduce our risk, there is a range of strategies which we can choose. When did we make children responsible for keeping us safe?

    I’m at a loss as to why anyone under 18 is being enlisted in the vaccination programme.
    The only exceptions would be children who have health conditions that make them vulnerable to covid.

    Except for those who have been threatened with loss of livlihood.

  3. Shy Ted says:

    Ha ha, the vax improves safety for vulnerable adults. No it doesn’t, it kills them sooner. It can’t be given safely to any person of any age unless it’s from the saline batch.

  4. Not Trampis says:

    except the kiddies can give it to vulnerable adults and in the worst case scenario kill them.
    Great thinking to have grandchildren not vaccinated. fantastic news for every grandparent.
    young kiddies can get long covid. That has long tern implications for their health.

    It is amazing how secular this blog is.

    It’s amazing how narrow your perspective is.

  6. Not Trampis says:

    It is amazing how lite you think of Human life.

    very very secular

    It is amazing how little you think of human rights, self-determination, and freedom from government overreach.

    very very secular

    This trolling doesn’t hit the gauge as “Low energy”!

    It is amazing how little you think of human rights, self-determination, and freedom from government overreach.

    Non Compos Mentis is a loyal member of the fascist left. The fascist left regards these matters as useful tools to babble about on their way into political power, but discards them as soon as they obtain that power.

  10. Not Trampis says:

    It aint trolling it is simply accurate.
    the secular left here do not value human life at all.
    Never have and never will

    Homer Paxton, are you attempting to imply that CL (A practising Catholic, correct CL?) is somehow unChristian because he disbelives and disobeys your Narrative?

    What universe are you even in?

  12. Lee says:

    What universe are you even in?

    A parallel universe.

  13. C.L. says:

    Homer, you’re theologically confused. Christians lay down their lives for others. They don’t have the government lay down others’ lives for them.

    Non Compos Mentis thinks he is talking to the faculty lounge! ROFLMAO!

    And now he/she/xe claims to be a religious conservative. Bridge for sale Non Compos, BTC accepted.

    I think you have got it correct CL.

    To Non Compos Mentis, the government is god. Therefore, anyone who does not idolise the government is secular.

  16. Not Trampis says:

    no-one is talking about laying down their lives.
    We are talking about kiddies spreading a disease that can kill other people both directly and indirectly and give others long covid.

    No Christian would entertain that. only secular people without a moral compass do as they do here regularly.

    In some ways it is not that different to polio but polio is simply not as deadly.

  17. Rex Anger says:

    On what Scriptural authority do you claim that, Homer Paxton?

  18. Boambee John says:

    Non Compos Mentis

    In some ways it is not that different to polio but polio is simply not as deadly.

    Where can we get some of what you’re smoking?

    So you are quite happy to give kids heart problems and other known side effects of the so-called “vaccines” in order to preserve your own miserable life? No Christian would entertain that.

  19. Not Trampis says:

    what heart problems? what other side effects. the TGA have not yet ruled on this.
    As usual you are wrong yet again.
    Every vaccine has side effects. It depends on how many people are affected.

    Even polio vaccines have side effects but since they affect so few we do not worry about it. A bit like that with AZ.
    Indeed anyone who has an operation is told of any problem that could occur. The odds are so high few people worry about them.

    Christians do entertain that because all human life is sacred. If the TGA allows vaccines then only ignorant fools would argue against it.

  20. Boambee John says:

    Non Compos Mentis

    what heart problems? what other side effects.

    You really do live in your own little fantasy world! As usual you are wrong yet again.

    If the TGA allows vaccines then only ignorant fools would argue against it.

    The TGA has given only provisional approval.

    Christians do entertain that because all human life is sacred.

    Only pagans sacrifice their children to benefit their adults.

  21. Not Trampis says:

    Wrong on all counts.
    What a surprise.
    The TGA has not given any approval. At earliest it would be early in the new year.

    the latest New England Journal of Medicine has an article looking at this very topic and found no side effects you speak of. Only about 1500 children examined but looking good.

    Who is sacrificing anyone? you need to take your blue pills.

    It would help if people had some understanding of a topic here.

    Are you actually aware of what you posted less that 24 hours ago?

    Or are you an ignorant fool, arguing vehemently for an unapproved vaccine?

    the latest New England Journal of Medicine has an article looking at this very topic and found no side effects you speak of.

    The authors do not seem to have looked very hard. They should try again.

    It would help if people had some understanding of a topic here.

    It would indeed. Try to develop some.
