Well, it was basically a retort to the “all the children are going to die and that’s hilarious” brigade. It struck me as a metaphor for the general tone of public discourse.
Sometime in the distant future, human evolution results in smaller noses from eons of mask-wearing, smaller mouths because people don’t talk anymore due to government mandates of not talking in public so that you can’t accidentally spray saliva while talking, larger brains enhanced for telepathic communication, gray skin due to covid variant-32194-9. /s

When the makers of vaccines figure out why some people die or get adverse reactions from the vaccine, then the number of people hesitating on getting the vaccine will reduce. Until then, it’s about the assurance that the vaccine companies can’t and don’t provide about the safety of their vaccine. Saying that the risk is low is not enough. They need to know who qualifies to use it and what medical conditions will trigger a bad reaction.
Well, they do know some. Millions ok vs some strong adverse reactions, yes including a number of deaths still under investigation. Immune patients can take all kinds of vaccines, but for example BNT is, for some reason, not advised to people with seafood allergies. Overall, vaccines are safe, with the knowledge that some allergic reaction may happen.
That is why they are telling people here in Taiwan not to force the kids vaccines. And to spot which symptoms might point to dangers, say, myocarditis (heart inflammation).
