Manager reported on the latest public opinion poll by Suan Dusit University that asked 1,089 parents about vaccinating their 12-17 year old children against Covid-19.

 

The poll conducted last week indicated that 75.44% of parents agreed with vaccinating children in secondary school to get schools reopened. 

 

The plan is to do that in November, notes ASEAN NOW after months of closures.

 

61.43% were ready to have their children jabbed, 26.17% wanted to wait and 12.40% were not ready.

 

64.72% expressed confidence in the vaccine being offered.

 

This has been reported as Pfizer.

 

46.74% thought it was better to get vaccinated than not for their children while 40.96% said the pros and cons were about the same. 

 

77.59% were worried about side effects.

 

64.13% wanted the jabs done at schools.

Well the usual BS number of respondents which clearly shows there is no strong evidence one way or another. Suan Dusit embarrassing themselves as a research university yet again.

So the vaccine is totally voluntary for kids?? IF a kid and their parents choose NOT to get it....will they still be able to go back to the classroom??? This has NOT been made clear. Anyone??

If I'm not mistaken, I believe that it was recently made mandatory. There are some debates whether children might be vaccinated or not, lower dose, wait for the tweaked variety made for youngsters, etc....

 

If anything, teachers and admin staff should be vaccinated for everyone's protection. That should've been a priority from the start. 

Until then, a protocol practiced [mask, distancing, etc] classroom might be prudent and advisable.
