What Will Happen if ACIP Does Recommend the COVID-19 Vaccines for Children
This is a brief note of my speculative but informed expectation.
The states determine mandates, not the school.
A full ACIP recommendation for any pediatric vaccine carries the power of law under mandates in those states not smart enough to have or retain their philosophical exemptions.
That means that adults who will never take the boosters are going to have to enforce 2-3 COVID-19 shots per year in children and teens.
States will reinstate, or instate philosophical exemptions before that happens. This one will backfire and lead to more exemptions across the board.
That’s my prediction. I hope I’m right, but I could be wrong. What do you think?
