Limit vaccines to those proven effective with longitudinal human testing studies

I have nothing against vaccines for children that have been proven effective in longitudinal human testing processes with well-documented results.  However, I have strong objections to adding the COVID vaccine to any immunizations for children.  The COVID vaccine does not have longitudinal studies in animals. It has no longitudinal human testing studies or any published results therefrom. The COVID vaccine has a substantial history of associated negative effects in humans,  including myocarditis in young children,  and negative effects, including deaths, in young adult athletes in high school and college.  In some cases, the effect appears directly related to the vaccine, and in others there seems to be an associative relationship with a possible causative relationship.  Because of the number of negative effects, and the uncertainty of long-term effects in humans, combined with the inadequacy of the testing done prior to introduction of the vaccine, and the protections given to the manufacturers by the Federal government against lawsuits resulting from personal injury from the vaccine, I am strongly opposed to adding the COVID vaccine to any of the vaccines now being given to children as a condition of attending school.
