If you're going to stay on this thread at least don't lie.Vaccines contribute to herd immunity.
Isn’t your “point” about how conservatives make it unsafe for children to tell the truth to them?It started decades ago when they got our daughters to get abortions without telling their parents. Now, it is about telling children to get a Covid vaccine and not tell the parents. When the voice of authority such as school or government tells a child to lie to their parents they have committed a betrayal beyond measure. It is an immoral, evil thing to do to put this authorized spirit of lying between a child and a parent.
I've said it here before. Truth telling has been a pillar of our society... our Christian society... and though imperfectly implemented it existed and made us thrive. Since kicking God out of the public square truth telling has taken a beating and so do we as a nation. The biggest corruptions are supported by lies. You see it in the third world and it is the reason it is the third world.
Here is what I mean... think about it because this is important. Other religions are indifferent to lying or actually praise their god for being a deceiver. In Christianity God is a truth teller and Satan is a deceiver.

But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.
You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
They *came and *said to Him, “Teacher, we know that You are truthful and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to pay a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?
(Now in what I am writing to you, I assure you before God that I am not lying.)

He who speaks truth tells what is right,
But a false witness, deceit.
And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe.
But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.
I am telling the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience testifies with me in the Holy Spirit,
Truthful lips will be established forever,
But a lying tongue is only for a moment.
Who say to the seers, “You must not see visions”;
And to the prophets, “You must not prophesy to us what is right,
Speak to us pleasant words,
Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me?
1 John 4:6
We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness,
And speaks truth in his heart.
My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth and one turns him back,

May it never be! Rather, let God be found true, though every man be found a liar, as it is written,
“That You may be justified in Your words,
And prevail when You are judged.”
Righteous lips are the delight of kings,
And he who speaks right is loved.
However, I will tell you what is inscribed in the writing of truth. Yet there is no one who stands firmly with me against these forces except Michael your prince.
Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.”
The wicked are estranged from the womb;
These who speak lies go astray from birth.
