This editor remembers getting the coronavirus vaccine but didn’t have any feeling one way or the other about it; mostly he was impressed by the efficiency of the National Guard.
Patricia Karvelas is a radio and TV presenter in Australia, where they take their lockdowns very seriously, and she posted her vaccination as a memory of the happiest day of her life.

That seems like a weird thing to consider the happiest day of your life. I mean, I also got vaxxed, but I think I would put it somewhere between raking the yard and taking trash to the dump on the happiness scale.

My regards to your significant other and/or children.

Gee, I’m sorry you haven’t had much happiness in your life then. Hope things get better for you.

So how much have you been paid for this photo? Or are you just virtue signalling?
— Jack Hayes (@Hazy42) September 22, 2021
Wow, and I thought my life was shit. Thank you for making me feel better about myself. 🖖🏼

You do? I don’t. She looks pretty old. She had thousands of chances to have amazing days. She obviously wasted those. Some people just choose to be miserable.

I get the point but that's a little sad.

Happiest days of my life:

-Celebrating 35 years of marriage
Because I'm not a moron.

Normally we leave kids out of it, but Jessica Ballinger apparently posts them all over YouTube. Her bio also says Parker is 8, so the vaccine is just over the horizon for him.
Parker, when I read him the headline that Pfizer’s early results of their trials are showing that COVID vaccines are safe & effective for 5-11 year olds!!!!! https://t.co/6xE9IgyJB6 pic.twitter.com/xmibLmPOog

If this is your child's reaction, you've been engaging in mental abuse of a child.
— TheRealMirCat (@TRMirCat) September 22, 2021
This is really uncomfortable. The kid must have absorbed a lot of your own fear to have this reaction.
— MoonBaboon (@40powerup) September 21, 2021
This is possibly the most cringe tweet I've ever seen.
— Dad_of_a_sweat (@CaptainJohnson7) September 21, 2021
There are 2 possibilities 1) this photo was taken to capture genuine emotion at another moment and used in this context for clicks OR 2) what you’ve declared is real. Both options are terribly sad. My son looked like this 1 month ago.. when he met his baby brother for 1st time
— Rob_Bob ⚫️⚪️🇬🇧🇧🇭🇮🇶 (@Robertypasty) September 22, 2021
I was talking to a young physician today. She said the deliberate fear being pushed out by EVERY ENTITY is going to irreparably damage children for years to come. She’s young and has young children. She’s shaken to her core. You’re proving her point. She’s probably a Dem or was.

Poor kid. He must have been living in fear this entire time thanks to you.
— Carla 🧡⚡ (@HodlingCarla) September 22, 2021
The amount of emotional abuse and manipulation required to make a child react like this is monstrous. It's child abuse and demonic.
— Man of Dust (@CadiaStands) September 22, 2021
I don’t understand what he’s excited about.

Why its impossible for white women to not use their kids for internet woke points?
— Bernie-83 (@Ber46589873) September 22, 2021
Young Parker is reacting this way because adults who should know better unnecessarily scared the living hell out of him regarding the threat posed to 5-11 year olds
— South Jersey Giants (@SouthJerzGiants) September 22, 2021
Or because he thinks this is the way out of all the stupid crap we are putting kids through.
— Random Old Guy (@GerryDales) September 22, 2021
I feel so sorry for Parker.

Excellent, now he can get vaccinated and continue to perform all ritualistic covid preventative measures as though nothing has changed!

We really doubt this photo was taken as the headline was being read to him, but either way, it’s kind of sad.
