June 3, 2021:
Children should not be vaccinated for the moment.
There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults. However, children should continue to have the recommended childhood vaccines.

From their web page “children” is anyone under the age of 18.
From May 27, 2021, the “CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination…”
This is Schrödinger’s Vaccine – children should be vaccinated and not vaccinated at the same time.
If this mixed messaging is confusing to you, this is your fault for not following or understanding official guidance. You have probably been influenced by misinformation on social media.
Update: Now, WHO denies saying they implied children should not be vaccinated even though that is precisely what they said. Public health communication is a disaster of idiocy in a field run by idiots.
Reminder: I am a brain injured idiot with no relevant experience. I make observations and ask stupid questions. I am just passing this along from the public health professionals.
