  1. So in spite of the Fauci verified fact that school age children rarely have severe symptoms, if any at all, and are not a significant transmission vector, CPS is encouraging CHILDREN to participate in a medical experiment by taking a vaccine that has NOT been approved by the FDA, has had minimal testing for immediate safety, and none for long term safety? They have Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA, which is usually reserved for such things as treatment for terminally ill cancer patients.
