Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, Jan 1: The state government had decided to vaccinate children between the age group of 15 to 18 years as the cases of Omicron variant of Covid are increasing.

Chief minister Basavaraj Bommai has instructed all the district in-charge ministers and MLAs to get the drive started on January 3 in all districts.

Though DGCI has approved to administer vaccine to children between the age groups of 12 to 18 years, the union government has decided to vaccinate children between the ages of 15 to 18 years. The names need to be registered on CoWin portal. Vaccination will be given on priority.

    As youngsters and kids below aren't in any danger from the virus or any variants no benefit to either the recipients or their parents by vaccinating them, only beneficiaries are vaccine industries and their stooges. According to the available data 1 in million comorbid kid got admitted to hospital with corona and not due to corona. Vaccines on the other hand are likely to endanger 9 out 100 kids with experimental administration of unproven vaccines or their life. My request with all parents is don't play with the health and life of your kids as they have been naturally protected by creator as such never try to tinker with their developing immune system. Vaccines are never mandatory but voluntary and nobody can be forced into taking them according to the affidavit submitted to Supreme Court by central government. Wait for 1 or 2 years as from last 2 years 99.997% of people of the whole world haven't been affected by the assumed viral infections. Let us face all 1,20,000 viruses with our natural immune system which always succeeds 100% without any side effects.
