The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted 15-0 on Thursday to recommend Covid-19 shots from Moderna Inc., Pfizer Inc. and Novavax Inc.
Inoculation schedules are revised annually by the committee, and states usually incorporate its recommendations when establishing which shots kids must have to enter daycare and school. However, the CDC and ACIP don’t have the authority to force local governments to follow their advice.
In a meeting before the vote panelists acknowledged there has been public concern about the shots becoming mandatory. Last year President Joe Biden was criticized by some business groups for pushing for a new Occupational Safety and Health Administration rule that would have required 80 million workers to get Covid-19 vaccinations or periodic tests. It was later blocked by the Supreme Court.
Below are the charts of mandatory vaccines from birth to 18yrs of age:
I’m not an anti-vaxxer by any means, but, there has to be thought put into what is going into your child’s body and what is necessary and what isn’t necessary. The CDC has added and increased the amount 0f vaccines needed since my children were little and that says a lot.
Vaccine’s are a personal choice; you as a parent have the right to decide what and how much goes into your child’s body. Do your research on adverse side effects and ingredients on all vaccines before deciding.
