Everyone on Earth – certainly, everyone with a minor child – should read this incredible conversation between a distraught father and a pharmacist:
Father: Are you a pharmacist?
Pharmacist: Yes, how can I help?
Father: Yeah. Hey, I’ve got a question. My wife, against my wishes, brought my seven-year-old son a few days ago for a COVID jab, and he’s now in the hospital with myocarditis. And I was obviously not very happy with you guys or with my wife. She told me that she was not told that was a potential side effect. So why wouldn’t you have told her that?
Pharmacist: Okay — sorry. So it’s quite a rare side effect as well.
Father: No, it’s not. No, it’s not because I’ve been doing research; it’s common. In the US, there’s tens of thousands of them [myocarditis cases] reported to the CDC site. So why are you not telling parents this?
Pharmacist: We might scare the parents, and they don’t want to get their child vaccinated.
Because maximizing the number of kids they vaccinate against a disease kids are supremely unlikely to get is the most important thing, isn’t it?
