    Your numbers are off and they are already in advanced trials with kids 12 and up. And very rarely are there issues for kids in that age range with vaccines that are safe for adults. It’ll be much easier to get high numbers of kids vaccinated than adults because 1. They won’t have a choice and 2. It’ll be required for school. There will be a huge push to get kids vaccinated before school starts up in August so I stand by my July estimate (and yes I am operating under the assumption that we will need 80% of non infants to achieve herd immunity).

    Because that’s how it works. Parents didn’t want to give their kids the chicken pox vaccine at first because they thought that since they didn’t need it as kids their kids didn’t either, so there was a lot of hesitancy. As soon as the schools mandated it it went way way up.

    I mean I sure hope he is right just worried about a bunch of dumbass parents fighting it/claiming made up exemptions (especially where I live)

    someone said public schools are going to mandate vaccinations in reference to herd immunity this year.

    vaccine approval, mandate and distribution in the next 6 months seems optimistic but I'll be happy to be wrong.

    these largely binary proclamations are silly, especially when you're just straw manning

    the mandates improve compliance a substantial amount

    The nice thing is that distribution shouldn’t be an issue whatsoever, the vaccine is already approved for 18 year olds, and advanced trials are already underway for 12-17. I believe they are about to begin trials for under 12 as well. Not sure about the red tape of mandating it state to state.

    She's gotten some push back from other elected officials and legislators pushing for political purposes, but she doesn't seem to care at all. I'm not sure what her popularity really is right now. I wish she'd run again.

    Bonner is really the one running things and he had a strong track record of getting some massive things done in his district quietly without running on FoxNews to crow about it every other week. He’s still a conservative R but about the best you can hope for in this state

    Ok so update, this isn’t FEMA. The one I’m at is through the city of Houston. It’s in the same location that I got my first covid test at back in April. There’s no wait time whatsoever. It’s empty because they’re rolling through cars.

    Some of you are way too optimistic that schools will require vaccination. Maybe there will be a domino effect if airlines start requiring it, but it really feels like no one is talking about requiring vaccinations for anything yet. Yes, some of that is likely because there's not enough availability of the vaccines yet, but I'm growing pessimistic after still hearing nothing from officials about making it mandatory soon.

    Airlines will definitely start requiring it, IMO. Cruise ships have already talked about requiring it. I’m sure other countries won’t accept people from shithole countries like us without it.

    I sure hope so and that they start requiring it sooner than later, but my pessimistic opinion will be that they will wait way too late, like maybe next year sometime.

    how the shit are some of you struggling with the concept of a mandated covid vaccine for public schools when there are already mandated vaccines for a myriad of other viruses. it's perfectly natural to assume that they will simply fold the covid vaccine into the already mandated list.

    I completely agree it will be mandatory eventually. I just wouldn't expect it until the fall of 2022.

    I mean just because of the timing, yea, most likely, but kids will, barring setbacks in trials, start being able to be vaccinated before this year ends.

    school will essentially be back to normal this fall. because of how kids shrug off covid once the teachers and parents are vaccinated it's not as big of an issue if they continue to serve as vectors for the disease until they also start being vaccinated.

    And to think there’s like 15 other states that either got rid of their mask mandate sooner than Texas or didn’t have one whatsoever.

    Same, they'll require it at some point but I'm just so pessimistic it happens later this year when it really should.
