Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb anticipates coronavirus vaccines getting full approval by the FDA for kids between ages of 5 and 11.

Holcomb urges parents who have kids in that age group to get them vaccinated. Though he does not want to mandate it.

The federal government is expected to release millions of doses of COVID-19 vaccine for kids across the country next week. Indiana is expected to get around 200,000 of those doses.

President Biden and his administration could issue a new vaccine mandate if vaccines are fully approved by the FDA. Holcomb says he’s still waiting to hear about that. He’s not sure what the federal government will do in terms of mandates, dosage amounts, and other factors.

If the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approves COVID-19 vaccines for kids aged 5 to 11, the vaccine could be rolled out as early as next week.

The Indiana Department of Health also plans on opening an additional 1,300 vaccination sites. To find a vaccination site near you, visit this website.

Holcomb urges parents to give their children a vaccine with possible severe side effects to prevent them from getting a disease that they have a near 0% chance of dying from. Just more incompetence from a swamp creature.

On a side note: more US children in that age range died from gang violence than from covid19. Yet these swamp creatures don’t care about solving actual problems, they would rather treat us like we are children.

Why is this sleezy slimmy scum top floating piece of the sewer still allowed to be telling people what to do. A chemical injection into children that are very unlikely to have problems without it and from the alerts by parents and non government doctors of the side effects this is insanity on a scale not seen in 80 years. I am ashamed of the people of Indiana that chose to put him back in office.

It’s not a vaccine. How many more of those shots will the little kids need in the future. Once a year, twice a year, or more. Will the schools start requiring the shot yet do not require a flu shot? Holcomb is stooge of big pharma and the Fauci beagle whisperer. Parents need to have the courage and liberty to make their own decisions. For me, none of my kids or grand-kids of that age group will get the shot. Holcomb can eat a big barrel of rotten coleslaw. I wouldn’t vote for tyrant Holcomb for dog catcher.
