Is this administration seriously doing this?

Children are not at risk and we are not at risk from them.

CDC numbers are alarming IMPO.  https://www.usatoday.com/in-depth/graphics/2021/10/08/covid-19-kids-cases-hospitalizations-deaths/8361479002/

The good news continues to be that this is not a common problem for kids,” said Dr. Daniel Rauch, chief of pediatric hospital medicine at Tufts Children’s Hospital in Boston. “The bad news is kids are not immune to this.”

It’s still very low and mostly very mild.  Children are also having very bad reactions where many fewer adults are.

I understood there are safe vaccines for children in certain age ranges.

Children don’t need it.  Covid transmits through nasal passage receptors.  It gives people a massive amount of the virus in nasal passages.  Children have limited nasal receptors so it’s rare for them to have enough virus in their nostrils to give them the disease. If they do pass it again they have very small amounts of viral particles so they don’t transmit a lot.  
 

This is from CNN amd I can’t embed the entire article.

The receptors that let the coronavirus into our cells appear to be less common in children's noses -- which may be why kids are less likely to get sick with the virus, according to a new study.

The receptor is a kind of molecular doorway into cells called ACE2. The study, which looked at samples from more than 300 people between the ages of 4 and 60, found that older adults had more active receptors in their nose, while children under 10 had less. 

“Lower ACE2 expression in children relative to adults may help explain why Covid-19 is less prevalent in children,” wrote researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in the Journal of the American Medical Association

Interesting.  Thanks for posting.  Sadly, although cases are not rampant, there still are kids getting sick.

Children are not at risk and we are not at risk from them.

I think a good majority of people agree, but this admin is currently out of control... drunk on power if I might say!
