Dear parent who’s debating whether to give your child the Covid vaccine,
Wait, let me get this straight. You’re worried about injecting your child with some unknown chemical? You’ve heard it might cause infertility and can’t imagine how guilty you would feel if that happened? You’re worried the vaccine is brand new technology and you don’t want your kiddo to be the guinea pig? Have I got the general idea of how you’re feeling? I think I do.
And I get it. That totally makes sense. I’m so sorry you’re feeling so conflicted, and I genuinely mean that. This post is not meant to belittle people who are on the fence. It’s just a way to show you how I made MY decision.
I’d probably feel the same way as you if (and this is a big IF) if those myths were true. The thing is, it’s not just some random unknown chemical. It’s an mRNA vaccine that tells your body to produce a specific protein, which in turn triggers an immune response so your body learns how to fight Covid. They’ve been working on mRNA technology for decades. The only reason I know all this is because I looked it up on the CDC website and Johns Hopkins Medicine where the scientists explained it in a way that stupid people like me can understand it. The whole thing is pretty damn awesome if you ask me.
I don’t know how the F scientists figure this shit out. Like I see blood and I’m like oooh, look at that liquidy red stuff. But they see blood and they’re like I wonder what particles it’s made of and how we can make those particles act differently? Wha-WHAT?!! That’s incredible that their minds even think that way. That would never even occur to me.
So do I trust the scientists? Yes, I do. Wanna know why? Because they’re like 10 billion times smarter than I am and know wayyyy more about this stuff than I do. I mean sure I could ignore them and just decide things for myself, but why on earth would I trust my stupider mind over their more brilliant minds?
So yes I trust them. I trust them when I give my kid the polio vaccine. I trust them when they say it’s okay to give my kiddo 5 ml of Baby Tylenol. I trust them when they tell me not to use sunscreen on my newborn. I trust them when they say vegetables are healthier than chocolate. I trust them because they’ve studied science and know WTF they’re talking about. Which is why I’m trusting them when it comes to the Covid vaccine for my kids.
But what about how THEY say the Covid vaccine causes infertility? Okay, first of all, that’s not how these vaccines work. And second of all, who are THEY? Are THEY scientists? Are THEY doctors? Or are THEY just people on the Internet who don’t want you to get your kid vaccinated so they go and make a TikTok about fake myths and create charts and stuff to make it look all scientificky and believable? And honestly, I don’t understand why THEY are trying so hard to spread their message anyway. What do THEY care what you do with YOUR child?
YOUR child, YOUR decision.
If you want to vaccinate your kiddo, go for it. If you don’t, don’t. If you want to listen to the scientists, listen to them. If you want to listen to your gut instead, that’s your call. But please, don’t listen to the asshats who are just randomly making up shit or regurgitating someone else’s made-up shit.
There are reputable (I had to type that word like four times before I got it right) people out there who really know what they’re doing. Listen to them. Don’t listen to me. I don’t know WTF I’m talking about. But at least I’m willing to admit it.
