The fawning media coverage notwithstanding, uptake has been pitifully low.
Despite a massive media and government pressure campaign, American parents are overwhelmingly rejecting Covid vaccines for their young children.
About one week after the shots became available, barely 1 percent of children under 5 have received mRNA jabs for Covid, data from several states show.
Even in California, among the bluest states, only about 2 percent of kids under 5 have been jabbed.
Demand is likely to be near zero going forward. The recent history of Covid shots shows that the increasingly tiny minority of mRNA fanatics get themselves or their children jabbed or boosted quickly after regulators okay new doses. So pent-up desire for new shots is likely nonexistent.
As usual, elite media outlets have largely refused to acknowledge this reality, instead running endless articles that seek to normalize and encourage the shots.
