Does anyone remember Thalidomide?

Potentially serious and long term adverse side effects from the m-RNA vaccines are being observed in countries around the world. In many places they are advising against people under 30 receiving boosters due to the risk being too high. We should not be mandating such things for our children without fully understanding the possible risks. Terrible things could happen.


Does anyone remember Thalidomide? It was a drug commonly prescribed for nausea in the 1950s and 60s. It was given to pregnant women for morning sickness and, at the time, believed to be safe. It caused severe birth defects in thousands of children worldwide before its use for pregnant women was banned. Will something like this happen with COVID vaccines? I don't know. I certainly hope not. But with other countries starting to recognize potential danger and recommend against use in younger people why should we push for our children to be the guinea pigs and see if it harms them?


If the point is to reduce the spread of COVID, then the vaccine has been shown to not reduce the spread of COVID anyway. Vaccinated people can still catch and spread it. Is the reason to vaccinate to reduce the severity when infected? Children are already at very low risk for severe cases. It should be a parents choice whether or not the benefits outweigh the risks for their children, not the state.
