(PresidentialInsider.com)- So much for letting children go back to their normal school schedules. It turns out that the Biden administration intends to further punish children by forcing them to wear masks if they don’t take the COVID-19 vaccine.
In what appears to be a blatant push to force Americans into taking the vaccine whether they’re comfortable with it or not, the president announced that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to issue new guidance that children who haven’t taken the vaccine should be required to wear masks in class.
Biden made the announcement during a CNN town hall event in Cincinnati on Wednesday.
He said that it’s “probably” going to happen and advised that children over the age of 12 are expected to take the vaccine and will be able to take off their masks in school if they do.
The president dismissed concerns about forcing children to take experimental vaccines and described it as a “community responsibility,” but had nothing to say about the surprising number of young people diagnosed with enlarged hearts and other medical problems after taking the vaccine.
Reports suggest that Pfizer and Moderna are also working to receive emergency use authorization to vaccinate children under the age of 12. If successful, it could mean that children under the age of 12 will also be required to wear masks if their parents are uncomfortable with them being given a vaccine for a virus that barely affects children.
Pfizer is reportedly expecting to receive approval to vaccinate children between the ages of 5 and 11 by the autumn, and during the CNN town hall discussion, Biden suggested the younger children will be made eligible for the vaccine “soon.”
Schools were encouraged by the CDC to re-open in person earlier in July, but children who don’t receive the vaccine might soon start hoping that they were still learning online.
