Do NOT make COVID Vaccine Mandatory for anyone, much less school-aged children

COVID vaccines should NOT be mandatory for children. It would be completely irresponsible to do so because 1) COVID is extremely mild for children and death is extraordinarily rare when you actually look at the statistics. 2) The COVID vaccine is ineffective at stopping transmission, so its only purpose is to protect the person from adverse effects, which there are practically none. Therefore, that should be a personal decision, not mandated by the government 3) Adverse effects have been recorded, including myocarditis, and the long-term effects of the vaccine are unknown. Mandating this vaccine would be completely ludicrous. STOP THE INSANITY!
