Risk outweighs reward of taking away healthcare choice

In discussion of "vaccine" requirements for school age children, the risk v. reward calculation for school safety has to be the priority.  Some basic problems with enforcing this:  1. 1,360 children 17 or under have been reported as a COVID related death.  While all life is precious, this is not a statistically significant number at all.  You would be more prudent banning anyone under 17 from riding in a car to school.  This is not a health event for kids - and never has been, thankfully. 2. it is now well documented that the vaccine is, rather, an "abatement" - it may have some effect on transmission or recovery...but in its totality it does not a) eliminate transmission from person to person or b) prevent acquisition.  3) the VAERS adverse reactions in children and adults FAR exceed the above statistic on mortality.  4) with all of that in tow, you would be taking away healthcare choice and unilaterally imposing treatment (that is potentially damaging) to any child, regardless of health background.  That is irresponsible.  In fact, it wouldn't even be legally allowed in a normal advertisement on TV for any other medical product, drug, or treatment.  The "vaccine" shouldn't receive special treatment here, particularly given it's newness and lack of data.
