No, to the vaccine mandate

I am opposed to this because politicians are using this opportunity to shamelessly impose control over The People specifically in regards to COVID-19, and its variants, to mandate students have the vaccine. This is a political issue not a health issue. First, stop calling it a vaccine. It is a shot. Like the flu shot. It is not a vaccine such as MMR, polio, smallpox, Hepatitis, etc. In the latter case, I would agree, however the COVID shot has not been tested enough to know what the effects will be to children. The media and politically charged physicians keep saying that the COVID-19 shot has been tested for 10 years or more. That is also not true. It has been tested on animals, not humans for that long. It was initially not recommended for children for a reason. Take it out of the politically charged turn it over to the true scientists and call it what it is, a shot, not a vaccine. So therefore it does not meet the definition of a vaccine.
