Fauci says elementary students won't get vaccinated until early 2022, after high schoolers in fall

We're going to be wearing masks for another year!

Fauci said Pfizer will start studying the vaccine in 5- to 12-year-olds beginning in April. He said that study will take a year, but anticipates data on 12- to 15-year-olds sometime in the fall

God I hope not. I want them to be vaccinated ASAP.

All of you guys so UPSET about wearing masks sound exactly like Deplorables.

FFS, nobody here said that he refuses to wear a mask, or that he questions the science behind wearing a mask, or that he thought the whole thing was a hoax cooked up with fetuses in the back of a DC pizza restaurant.

They just had hoped of not having to wear a fucking mask for the rest of their fucking lives.

There's a difference.

OP, we’re going to be wearing masks for at least a decade.

by Anonymousreply 702/22/2021

R6 how would it actually hurt your quality of life to wear a mask in public from now on? You want to stop wearing masks and you’re going to be the assholes who do so as soon as you clear the 2wks past your 2nd shot and you’re going to spread CV19 to thousands of people because you’ll be asymptomatic and think you’re invincible. And it’s the same selfish fucking instinct that the trumpanzees have.

Yes, R8, the moment I'm told by reputable medical it's safe to take my mask off it's coming off. Not before.

You can carry on carrying-on with your mask and your welder's shield and your gloves and tongs and cloud of Lysol disinfectant for 20 years after your all-clear for all I care. If that makes me selfish (and you Christ-like in your perfection), enjoy your martyrdom. Have all the superabundance of caution you want, it keeps a scold at his scoldiest.

Fauci’s predictions are often wrong. I’m not sure why he continues to make them

R8 - let's see how it messes my quality of life. Well, I have acute asthma and let me tell you...N95's and double masking leave me gasping for breath and sweating buckets. Also, my job sends me abroad where there isn't always AC or I encounter humid air. Furthermore, I have ulcerative colitis which makes me take an anti-spasmotic that makes me sensitive to heat so in summer, it's hell...nevermind having to run to toilets under intense pressure gasping for air with sweat dripping into my mouth.

When it's safe for me and those around me, the damn thing is coming off. You, of course, are free to wear it forever.

You don’t need an N95 unless you’re a healthcare provider in close proximity to infectious Covid-positive patients.

The vaccine was not studied in or approved for use in under-16 patients at this time.

by Anonymousreply 1402/22/2021

R14, it’s been barely studied period as no one knows its long term repercussions.

by Anonymousreply 1502/22/2021

Wow, what a shame we didn't have any leadership in the White House for the first year of the pandemic. Anyone who is pissed off Biden or Fauci for this are deplorable scum. We could have kept this under control until the vaccines were ready, but here we are.

by Anonymousreply 1602/22/2021

Anyone who refuses to wear a mask after getting the shot, despite the fact that they can still spread CV19, is a fucking monster.

No shit Sherlock.

None of the vaccines currently in use have been FDA approved. For anyone.

I'm totally fine with wearing a mask anywhere, I never get a cold any more and my sinuses are better.

as long as I can see my friends and family without the risk of death, I'm fine with a mask

by Anonymousreply 1902/22/2021

R12 and r9, it will be early 2022.

by Anonymousreply 2002/22/2021

R13 - this is true but with this condition and Vitamin D3 deficiency I am not taking chances. I have considered just taking the cloth mask off cuz I know N95 is pretty hardcore. In fact, one of the two remaining pulmonologists here in the city I am working in said I should get some and err on the side of caution so that is what I am doing for now. It sucks.....cloth was bad enough. I carry my inhaler with me though. Cortisone and masks are no fun.

Also, I just think it is probably not a good idea for us to wear masks forever once it is safe. Each year, when I have left the US, I have gotten the flu when flu season started. Ditto when I went home. You need to build immunity (assuming that we are talking about regular flu viruses, obviously, not COVID). By my second flu season abroad, I was better with just mild flu symptoms. Wearing masks, in the absence of danger like such a serious pandemic, is probably not a good idea, particularly for hours at a time.

It’s not a prediction. It’s math

He stated Pfizer will start trials in April on kids and the trials take a year. Thus, kids won’t likely get inoculated until April 2022z

Covid is such a breeder disease. I kinda love they seem to be having the most difficulty with it. Fuck them for their decades silence on AIDS.

Dystopian scenario.

by Anonymousreply 2902/22/2021

What a shame... I want to wear this stinking double mask and not leave my tomb until 50 years after the last documented case of Covid. Like the pharaohs, I think I shall wear the mask until the all physicians who treated or inoculated against the disease are dead, and then the generation that knew those doctors, and then for 50 years more, until the name Covid is no longer spoken.

Even then, I think I shall use an intoxicating abundance of caution (and Lysol Wipes) and wait another series of lifetimes, the better that I can scold and wag a gnarled old finger and tsk tsk and keep alive the word deplorable which uses makes me feel so very Superior.
