    My BIL and SIL both got vaccinated. We’re refusing to let their kids get vax because his 87 year old aunt who was a nurse told them there are reproductive side effects. Son was able to get vax because he gets a bonus from Walmart at a stocker doing so. Daughter will not be vaccinated.

    they’re complete idiots though

    This fucking conspiracy about it destroying women's reproductive systems is probably the most harmful as I've seen this repeated so much more than other lies.

    some moron I know from my hometown was posting on Facebook about how it caused 25% of pregnant women to either lose the baby or have premature births. Then was bitching about fb taking his post down. Scary how so many people can believe something so obviously false

    I was worried but I wasn’t not going to get it. FWIW only one of them is a true antivaxxer Covid denier.

    18 year old just got dose 2 of Pfizer and 12 year old just got dose 1. Broke up our Moderna family but we will persevere

    daughter will hers as soon as she turns 12 (and will likely throw a fit about it)

    My first dose was AZ 6 weeks ago. Our national health advisory board is saying it’s safe to get Pfizer or Moderna shot for my second. Early evidence says it may offer me more protection.

    Was hoping for mid summer to allow for more vax before school. I live in a very conservative area with people that had little interest in social distancing. I can’t imagine the vax rates in elementary age kids will be very high.

    I do think if they’d open up the J&J for teens both of my teenage kids would get it, I think the 2 dose shot scares them.

    my girls got the day off from school. Didn’t have to take the dogs down, got Dunkin and got to pick dinner that night. All that and knowing they will be able to go out with friends who are also fully vaccinated made it easy for them. Kids want to get back to some sense of normalcy.

    If the very very rare occurrence that something would happen I would never forgive myself. Maybe I’m off base here but I think at 18 and 15 they’re old enough to decide if they want the vaccine. I’ve told them both I wish they would get it but I’m going to leave that decision up to them, maybe I’m wrong here :idk:

    I don’t judge anyone about how they parent because I assume we are all doing the best we can. I just am not leaving it up to my kids. They seem to happy that made them do it.

    You should try saying “if it were up to you would you get the vaccine?” And if they say they’ll get it then boom u let ur kids make the decision and if not than you force them. Win win

    I’m confused, either they are bullet proof or not. Why are they more scared of a vaccine than Covid? And why are you?

    I understand you’re a smart dude but if you can make sense out of teenagers you’re missing your calling lol.

    2 of my kids are adults, I can’t force them to do anything against their will. My son is old enough that he understands the consequences of his actions.

    That there’s a deadly disease going around that has killed over a half a million people, he’s not a denier.

    Ole dad has spoken his peace, I should give you his email and maybe he’d listen to someone smarter and more well versed on the subject.

    my oldest is 18 and i pestered him for weeks and finally just made the appointment and drove him to target to get it. then he shamed his gf into getting by calling her an anti vaxer conspiracy theorist. he did his 2nd shot on his own and sent me a text saying he was glad he could lick the sinks in public bathrooms again #parenting

    can you mix and match? Is that how this works? Thought you had to do both of the same kind.

    I think initially they were saying you can mix and match but preferably get the same one, but now they’re saying mixing an AZ 1 with a Pfizer/Moderna 2 is better than two AZs

    It now looks like having AZ and one of Pfizer/Moderna creates slightly more antibodies. But with certain places in the USA saying AZ will not be accepted as fully vaccinated it’s best to have a mRNA as what’s printed on your vaccination certificate.
