“I want to wait and watch.”
NPR reports that this is a peculiar response received from friends and some family members in the United States when asked about their thoughts on COVID vaccination. They claim that it is a peculiar response for a few reasons: COVID vaccines are said to be exceptionally effective, they are now readily available, and they are the best way to end the pandemic and return to normalcy.
This skeptical response is reflective of broader trends in the U.S.: an NPR/Marist poll this spring revealed that up to one-fourth of the national population would decline to get vaccinated even when offered.
But is it no wonder when one reads reports like the following from our medical experts?
WHO kids vaccine recommendation – click here.
Children should not be vaccinated for the moment. There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Children and adolescents tend to have the milder disease compared to adults. However, children should continue to have the recommended childhood vaccines.
CDC kids vaccine recommendation – click here.
CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. People who are fully vaccinated can resume activities that they did prior to the pandemic. Learn more about what you and your child or teen can do when you have been fully vaccinated. Children 12 years and older are able to get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
So who is right?
The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center admonishes us that one of the chief ways to get vaccine trust is to, “communicate often with transparency.” This has not happened from our establishment medical professionals during this Covid-19 pandemic. This has not just been about vaccine recommendations but is in almost all recommendations these organizations have put out – including remedies, hand sanitizers, masks, and lockdowns, read here and here.
To add insult to injury if you try to have an open discussion on social media – you get censored even banned. It is as if they try to get people to mistrust these organizations. Statements like the following from Dr. Fauci do not help; “If you are trying to get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you’re attacking science.”

Fauci, is basically saying, “believe me or you are an idiot – obey you fool.”
The Right Wire Report are not medical experts and you should consult your own doctor concerning these matters, but we are a pretty good judge in how the general population thinks given a certain situation. It is not surprising that people distrust many CDC and WHO recommendations because they are so conflicting with the general population.
