    Are teachers and students scapegoats that we need to get vaccinated first? What is the guarantee that it will not have some adverse side effects? There are many students and faculty who have underlying health conditions, what if it gets worse with the vaccine, will they pay for the treatment. We have been taken for granted. Not to mention some schools and colleges calling faculty as the lockdown is eased and making them work from colleges. A few teachers have already tested positive? They also talk about opening up schools and colleges, seriously if something goes wrong who will be held responsible? We are not any experimental guinea pigs, that we will dance to your tunes. Hopefully good sense prevails and let them think of different innovative methods of teaching than risking teachers and students.

    In 1918, when Spanish flu came it took 8-10 years to get Herd Immunity and disappear. Most were living in remote villages without Roads away from Bombay - which was epi-center. Mangalore had very few once in a month/week Stream Ships to Mumbai. Then Families had 8-10 children - even if 2-3 child of a parent dies - still they had children. Now, situation is different. Most have 1-2 children. We cannot wait till 2030 for children to go back to College & School. Vaccinated Adults will act as Virus Carrier to spread it to Children and College going child. So, it is better to Vaccinate all children aged 6 months & above - as vaccine gets approved to protect children. Some, 30 years back - every village had 10-20 handicapped children with support around arms & legs. We have given Polio vaccine to Healthy children & now we are NO more seeing Handicapped children in towns & Villages.

    Your aspiration is well intended but based on false inputs. Vaccines only were found to create antibodies in less than 1% and 1.3% of the people who got fully vaccinated. 750 doctors have lost their lives in India despite getting fully vaccinated. Secondly polio has not been eradicated in reality. Every year 50000 kids get polio after they get polio drops. But as we have got WHO certification the disease has got a new name like Acute non polio Paralytic stroke. The reason is live virus is in the drops which kids shed for a fortnight while malnourished kids come down with polio but has got a new label. Polio drops are banned world wide but lies are propagated by vaccine industries. Would anybody believe their marketing ads. or go with the facts and truth which are hidden by them and fake media?

    Previously nuclear arsenal needed to decimate much population in wars but today with virus or vaccine it is possible. These communists, WHO and their elites using them for slow mass euthanasia, maiming like polio to bring world under communist control. Following is last year news regarding polio outbreak because of vaccination. Also newer vaccine nano chip delivery system can be misused for mind control, recent many gun and other violence in the west could be because of it. https://21stcenturywire.com/2020/09/04/un-forced-to-admit-gates-funded-vaccine-is-causing-polio-outbreak-in-africa/

    Wonderful! Who has consulted with parents? Unproven experimental vaccines are projected as saviour against mutating viruses like corona. Mass Vaccinations to Mass Experiment on Human Guinea Pigs. No vaccines have proven to prevent infection or provides protection till today despite tall marketing claims by vaccine industries. World wide data shows children aren't in any danger from the virus as such enforced immunisation drive is uncalled for and illegal too. Unless long term study proves their efficacy and safety it isn't prudent to subject kids to chemical laden DNA tweaked viral contamination as they might get autoimmune diseases and cancers as their immune system is likely to go haywire which is irreversible damage. Beware and carry out this drive with caution and in a an area first before introducing it all over the state. Finally a viral infection with recovery rate of 99.997% and never affecting youngsters doesn't need any unproven vaccines.

    For Research they will select DK and Udupi ..Similar to use of endosulphan in the kerala karnataka border areas .. the endo suplhan victims.are predominantly Tuluva's . This is why Tuluva's need to wake up ..and demand for separate statehood for protection of their lives .. Karnataka has imposed its culture here silently and efficiently ..Tuluvas themselves are in confusion ..if they are kannadigas or Tuluvas.

    What is this misconception that taking 1 dose is being vaccinated? Good idea, pack the classrooms. Uneducated ministers will be the death of people. Then blame, Indira Gandhi for next wave.

    Its impossible to vaccinate all college students by July end. First dose may be possible but two doses are not possible as gap between doses in 84 days for Covishield and 42 days for Covaxin. One dose of vaccine is not effective against the delta variant.
