San Francisco Announces 5-Year-Olds Will Need Vaccine To Enter Restaurants. Social Media Explodes. | Beaufort County Now | "If you don't feel safe sitting in a coffee shop unless the five-year-old across the room is vaccinated, you should stay home."

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

    Speaking at a virtual townhall, Susan Philip, the Acting Health Officer and Director of Disease Prevention and Control for the San Francisco Health Department, stated that the vaccine mandate requiring children between the ages of five and eleven barring them from restaurants unless they were vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine would be implemented no more than eight weeks after the Pfizer vaccine for children is fully approved. That news enraged people on social media, who castigated the city government for forcing children to get vaccinated in order to attend public events.

    The moderator asked Philip, "When do you think the vaccine mandates will happen for grades K through 6, for this age range that we're talking about, ages 5 through 11?"

    "What we have heard from the governor's office and the California Department of Public Health is that this will be in effect, as Dr. Woolridge (pediatrician Daniel Woolridge) said, once the vaccine, once the Pfizer vaccine is fully FDA approved." Philip answered. "There is a related question which people have asked me, which is what about the local San Francisco health orders that require vaccination to go into a restaurant or to go to a Warriors game, when is that going to apply to children five to eleven?"

    "We definitely want to wait and make sure children have an opportunity to get vaccinated," she continued. "So that will happen no sooner than about eight weeks after the vaccine is available to kids, so there will be a limited time in which there will not be those requirements is our plan. But then at some point, five to 11-year-olds will also have to show proof of vaccination to access some of those same settings."

    Asked who could provide consent for children ages five through eleven, Philip answered, "For five to eleven-year-olds, it would be that child's parents or guardian, legal guardian, who is able to provide consent for vaccination."

    Asked whether there would be a way to ascertain how small or large the dose for children could be as their weights fluctuated, Woolridge answered, "It speaks to the particular nuance in pediatrics where we weight-base many, many medications. However, for the Pfizer bio-tech vaccine, it is not weight-based like certain other medications in pediatrics. And the vaccine for those ages five to eleven was studied using a dose ... that was one-third of the adult dose, and that was really done in order to prevent side-effects from the vaccine but still offer the same effectiveness and protection against COVID-019."

    "Figures from San Francisco's official COVID tracker show that out of the 664 citizens that have succumbed to the disease since it surfaced in the states nearly two years ago, none have been aged 21 or younger," The Daily Mail noted, adding, "What's more, only 1,529 kids in the city have come down with the virus in that span."

    Fox News contributor David Webb tweeted, "In #SanFrancisco children between the ages of 5 and 11 have to prove who they are to get a #vaccine so they can enter a building, but #illegalaliens can now permanently #vote when many can't prove like an American or a lawfully present person who they are. Makes sense."

    Comments from other social media users:

    San Francisco is going to mandate 5 - 11-year-olds have the vaccine to participate in society. Are parents going to have to carry birth certificates with them to restaurants and grocery stores to prove their 4-year-olds are ineligible?

    San Francisco wants to mandate COVID vaccines for children as young as 5 years-old to attend public events. San Francisco hasn't had a single COVID death in any person under the age of 20.

    This is the most draconian vaccine passport system anywhere in the United States or Europe. If you don't feel safe sitting in a coffee shop unless the five-year-old across the room is vaccinated, you should stay home.
