No added covid vax required for kids

When adding a required vaccine to children's immunization schedule, It should be completely medically necessary with all side effects known.  Scientists have not checked off those boxes in the case of the covid vaccine for children.  Requiring it now will also have the side effect of families questioning the validity of how these decisions are made in the future, since kids are not in statistically significant danger of doing from covid. Let natural immunity do its work in children for families who choose to allow that.  Please do not require this new covid vaccine for kids.
